Skippy Says: My Kind Of Holiday Party (OOTD)

For those of you that follow me on twitter, you may have heard that I went to a holiday dessert exchange party Saturday night. As predicted, I came back with a tummy ache. And as further predicted, it was totally worth it.

Here was just part of the spread. Among the goodies were cake pops, homemade toffee, chocolate bread pudding, caramel and white chocolate ganache cookies, brownies, lemon squares, cupcakes, hand-dipped chocolate pretzels, and so much more!


And butterscotch, pecan, and bourbon bread pudding, made by yours truly:


I planned ahead and wore an outfit I knew would expand as my dessertfulicious belly grew throughout the night. These pants may look tight, but they got some serious stretch. Trust me, when it comes to desserts, I don't mess around.

  11. cute outfit, I love the little bows. THose desserts are so delectable looking, I have a weakness for desserts. Last week my friends and I went for a crazy dessert buffet that cost us $61, it was madness! I kind of regretted not finding out the price first. But they were sooo good. Yours is probably a fraction of that price.

  14. OMG! Dessert food babies are totally the best kind... well, those and mashed potato food babies. When I dress to accomodate a food baby I usually end up looking like a crazy-eye bag lady. You still manage to look cute, and out together!
