Weekend Adventures and a Celeb sighting!

I had a busy weekend this weekend Saturday i went to Peddlers Village in bucks county PA to check it out for some ideas since I'm entering their cupcake decorating contest next month. It would have been better if it was warmer out and everything was all in one place but the layout was kinda all over the place lol. I stopped at this awesome yarn store on the way home and picked out some fancy yarn for my friend Ashley's baby blanket I'm making her and met the funniest ladies inside lol.

Sunday my mom our family friend Donna and their 2 friends both named Anthony went to the American museum of natural history in NYC. We had such a fun day i felt like the tour guide and chaperon to all of them and they are twice my age lol. I was telling them all about the exhibits and they were asking questions the museum should have hired me lol. The craziest part was earlier in the week i was watching the Martha Stewart show and she was at the museum and earlier in the day i was talking about her. Then I'm walking through the gift shop and who do i see walk past me 5 inches away from me?? Martha Stewart! I was so shocked luckily i was able to keep my excitement inside and run over to them to confirm we all saw her lol . I didn't snap a picture of her she was alone with her granddaughter in the stroller and I didn't wanna bother her but i did take these pics at the museum.

Below Donna having fun with some dinosaurs lol

So heres a question of the day have you ever saw a celeb while you were out and if so who?

I also saw Joan Rivers at LAX airport a few years back

Handbag Heaven.. Oh how i wish list

Something you may or may not know about me is I'm a purse gal. I do enjoy shoes as well but i would rather drop the money on a nice purse then shoes any day. I buy sale shoes and splurge on bags lol. There are alot of people who are against buying designer bags because they say you just want the label ect ect. But i am a very firm believer that a good quality purse is worth the price. I'm not saying you need to drop thousands but put some money into it, it pays off. Case and point my aunt buys bargain cheap bags from wherever she may find them, but she goes through them really fast if she would put the money into a good bag she wouldn't have to do that . Enough of my ranting lets look at some purse porn, this is what I like to call the oh how i wish list lol.

Above: This Dolce and Gabbana bag is kinda off the wall but i really love the mix match look.

Above: This Chloe bag is simple elegant and spohisticated reminds me of a Blair Waldorf bag

Above: I have been swooning over these Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutches for forever!

Above: I'm not normally all for the logo everywhere but the classic Fendi logo is great and i was drooling over a similar bag in Bloomingdale's

Below: Last but definitely not least one of my favorite brands Burberry i love this bag

Chocolate peanut butter sandwich cookie recipe

Chocolate peanut butter sandwich cookies

So for Christmas i always make my boyfriend a few different types of cookies and after seeing this recipe in the taste of home magazine i knew this was a winner . I changed up the recipe a little the original calls for cream cheese in the filling and i used butter and it also had chopped peanut butter cups around the edges but i didn't use those either. Here is the recipe..

cake part:

1/4 cup of softened unsalted butter softened

4 0z of cream cheese

2 eggs

1 tablespoon of good vanilla extract

1 package of chocolate cake mix

1/4 cup of all purpose flour


3/4 cup of smooth peanut butter

4 oz of unsalted butter

2 1/2 cups of confection sugar

3 tbsp of milk

1 tbsp of vanilla

Preheat over to 375

in a large mixing bowl cream butter and cream cheese till fluffy

beat in eggs and vanilla

add in cake mix and flour in 3 parts and mix well

roll in 1 inch balls and place on a ungreased baking sheet 2 inches apart

bake for 6-8 min and then let cool for 1 min before placing onto a cooling rack

while cooling make the filling beat peanut butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy

add sugar one cup at a time then beat in milk and vanilla

spread the mixture onto one cookie and top with another and your all ready to enjoy!

A side note i always use unsalted butter for baking but in this recipe you can use regular butter if you like.

If you have any questions or requests for recipes you would like to see me make leave them in the comments.

Florida Trip Part Two

I should have done this post right after the first one but it kinda slipped my mind lol so this is a little belated. This is the second part of my first post . So over all it wasn't the greatest trip but It was free so i guess i can't complain to much lol Here are more of the things i saw aside from the zoo.

Above is one of the hotels in Marco island and a little bit of the beach, we stayed in Marco island but i preferred when we went to Naples that was much more lively.

Above is a shopping district in Naples it was on the higher end side it was really cute there ,and i went into the first free standing Sperrys store lol

These were the dolphins that we saw at least twice a day in the back of the house . They seemed to stay on the other side and i kept hoping they would come closer but this was the best picture i could get.

It just so happened the town cupcake shop was right around the corner , It was a little hard to find because it was behind the hotel over there but it was super cute. Of course i forgot to take pictures of the cupcakes. I picked the hottest day we were there to walk over there and they were melted by the time i got back home with them. The cupcakes were pretty good to.

That's it i had alot more pictures but going over them i didn't really like them that much.
