Luring You In ;)

You guys, it is a gorgeous day here in Tennessee.  It rained for what felt like approximately a month solid but, finally the sun is shining again and everyone in the Kelley household is beside themselves.  We do not do well being cooped up inside for too long.  The kids are pretty much living outside at this point in the year and I love it.

I have been food prepping like a crazy person for tomorrow night’s Noonday Collection party…6-8 at our house.  Be there or be square.  I would so so so love for you to come.  Even if we’ve never met, come on!!!!  I know that is weird, but honestly, I tend to be more introverted…I have a hard time just going up to someone and making a new friend…but if new people come to our house it’s so much easier to make friends that way.  Ha.  Plus I promise you will walk away with a full stomach, happy heart and more laugh lines.  It’s a given.

I even scoured around this morning looking for fun door prizes for the evening.  If you’ve ever been to any of our parties you know things can get a little weird…in a funny, good way.  I love to give stuff away.  I told Brooke this morning I had brought out some of my “dead mom earrings” because I felt it was a worthy enough occasion.  Mom LOVED her some earrings and I kept some of her earrings to give to others…kind of therapeutic for me…any how…I feel this party is the perfect time to bust out some of my “dead mom earrings”.  Laugh with me now.

I also have plenty of non “dead mom earring” items to giveaway as well.  Actually some awesome stuff from Noonday Collection, Solohope and Trades of Hope.

All my non-dessert food is done with prepping and today I started in on my mini whoopie pie extravaganza.  This is insanely fun for me because A.  I love to bake  B.  I love whoopie pies and C.  I love to feed people said baked goods and whoopie pies.

Today I knocked out mini chocolate chip cookie dough whoopie pies…I halved THIS recipe for the cookie part (to make them mini I just used a 1/2 TB scoop instead of the full 1 TB scoop) and used THIS full filling recipe for the inside.  Freakin yummy.

Next up were mini Funfetti whoopie pies.  I used THIS recipe except subbed a Funfetti cake mix instead of white and I filled them with Betty Crocker Rainbow Chip icing and dipped sides in sprinkles.  My kids will most definitely flip over these.

And last for today were the traditional mini chocolate cream cheese whoopie pies.  I used THIS recipe, but halved the entire thing including the filling recipe.  Again, 1/2 TB scoop for the dough…just like the others.

Oh and for all the icing…I fill a quart plastic baggie, snip the tip and then fill the cookies.  I have tasted tested to make sure nothing is poisonous…can’t have someone dying a party.  So delish. Tomorrow…party day…I’m tackling Red Velvet Whoopie Pies, Lemon Whoopie Pies and Oatmeal Cream Whoopie Pies.

If you cannot make the party in person, no worries, I will mail you a whoopie pie.  I’m kidding.  I won’t, but you can order amazing Noonday items online HERE. Just double check when your checking out that “Rebecca Daniels” is your ambassador and “Laura Kelley” is your host.  Right now Noonday has an added incentive for guests who spend $75 or more – they can get the Afloat Earringsand Matovou Bracelet for half-off.  If you’re interested in this offer just contact Rebecca at noonday.rebecca at gmail dot com and she’ll hook you up with the special.

And don’t forget Mother’s Day is just around the corner.  I also started flipping though my calendar to look ahead at birthdays & celebrations that are headed my way.  20% of all sales…in person, email and online…will go directly towards the Carman’s adoption fund.  This is like a win/win/win/win.  Quadruple win…support women around the world, support women here in the states, support the Carman family and Everett gets his best friend back!

Please shoot me an email (pitterpatterart at gmail dot com) if you need more details about the party.  You can read about them HERE too.  I would love to see your face, hug your neck and feed your mouth.  I promise we will have fun!!!!

Happy Wednesday.

    Love the dead mom earrings! My grandpa passed a few years ago and I have what my husband calls my dead grandpa jeans. He was 5’3″ on a good day and bought exactly one style and size of jeans for his whole life, so I kept one to make into a pillow or something someday.

    I already got my necklace and bracelet and love them! I love that I get to share in the privilege of bringing sweet Everett’s BFF home! Thanks for sharing about the opportunity, and someday I’ll get up to TN and get some #bakedgoodsthatchangetheworld.

  2. I have been looking online and have found a bunch of stuff I want to get. I need to trim that back. There is a necklace that the model is wearing in the pictures for the Underground Cuff that I have been trying to find. The necklace is long with different brown tones. I can’t find it anywhere on the website. Do you know if that is still available or if it has been discontinued? I would love to add that to my list. Anything to help Everett’s BFF here sooner.

    • I did not see the necklace on their site. Thinking it must have been an older necklace and is gone now. Sorry. Thanks so much for the order though 🙂


  1. […] Oh and I must report back about all the whoopie pies.  I ended up having to nix the Oatmeal Cream Pie ones because my two 3-year-olds we’re extra needy and cried for the majority of the day yesterday and Amon wasn’t feeling his best.  The red velvet ones we’re Josh Kelley’s favorite and I heard several people say the lemon ones we’re delish too.  If I had to pick an absolute overall party favorite I would shockingly choose the Funfetti ones.  I did not see that coming.  I personally loved them all.  Not one was a “never make again” one.  You can get all the recipes HERE.
