Hodge Podge of Un-Blogged

I think I just invented a new tongue-twister with that title!  I thought I would feature some cookies I’ve made recently but haven’t blogged about.  These first two were made for the lovely Lillie who was having a week stay with her grandgirls complete with girly crafts and tea parties.  How fun is that?  She wanted these particular cookies for the tea party because she’s always called one of her grandgirls “Sunshine” and one “Cupcake”.  Too cute for words!

These cookies were for the ever-so-awesome Evelyn and her daughter for thanking the buyers of her 4-H sheep this year at the fair.  Sure, a note is always nice, but cookies say it way better than words… and then cookies WITH the words on them?  Best of both worlds!
These are cookies I recently added to a fun animal print themed cookie challenge from Cristin’s Cookies.  Go check out all the wild cookies!
These cookies were for the beautemous Betsy (mother to triplet, blonde, bouncing, baby boys! oh, and did I mention the older twins?!)  Betsy is one of the sweetest people I know and she wanted a special gift to give her neighbor for her birthday.  I had a lot of fun making these burgundy birthday bites!

So, that’s what’s I’ve been up to lately.  I have some fun things coming up and I’m also running in a relay next weekend with my friend Cari.  It’s the Red Rock Relay which is an 187 mile, 2 day running adventure.  I’ve never done anything like this and I can’t tell if I’m more excited or nervous for it.  I guess I should start running?  Just kidding.  I run every day, but I am worried about the elevation change.  It’s going to be crazy!

    That relay sounds like quite an amzing feat! Woo hoo for you and good luck:) I look forward to hearing about it!
    I'm so glad you included the burgundy bites cookies here because now I can pin them on Pinterest(I wasn't able to do it from facebook)!

  2. So in addition to making absolutely phenomenal gorgeous cookies, you are going to run 187-miles in 2 days? Seriously? Every time I see anything you've done, I always find my self at my computer yelling out "seriously?" You are so amazing! I hope you write about your running adventure. I can't even begin to imagine running that kind of mileage. Is that even possible? WOW! And thanks for the link to Cristin's Cookies. That was very sweet of you! LOVE your rainbow animal print cookies!!!

    Liz, you are so awesome. I love looking at your creations!!! And are you going to be running with your camera? Cause that's going to be a BEAUTIFUL 187 miles. 🙂 Good luck friend!!!!!

  4. Your cookies, your artwork take my breath away! Best wishes on your relay run! You are amazing to be undertaking this challenge and I hope that you find it exhilarating!

  5. 😀 I will NOT be running 187 miles in 2 days! Don't give me too much credit 😀 Sorry, I should have clarified: It's a relay and I will run 3 legs of the race. My actual mileage will only end up being about 15 miles, but some legs are difficult. I will definitely be taking pictures, but I will probably look so sweaty and gross you won't recognize me. It's gonna be a crazy two days!
