Crust and Crumbs: disneyland, sugar, obc ’13, and a giveaway

Happy Friday everyone!

What have you been up to? I am so behind – after Austin and Disneyland, my Bloglovin’ feed is cray-cray.

Speaking of Bloglovin – Google Reader is going away soon! Be sure and follow me on Bloglovin! (I use it regularly and really, really love it. It’s way better than Google Reader anyway!)

1. So…I was gone last week. Did you see the wonderful guest posts I had for you?


Raspberry Tartlets by Something Swanky | Orange Chocolate Spice Cookies by Wine & Glue | Hot Fudge Fluffernutter Banana Bread by Buns in My Oven | Peanut Butter & Jelly Sugar Cookie Pizza by Mom on Timeout

Thanks to you girls for guest posting for me! It was SO nice to be able to totally unplug.

Well, except for instagram. And twitter. And FB. I can never really unplug those. #theyreinmyblood

2. Did you know that Hell froze over last Monday? And did you see the pigs flying over your house?


Jordan took pictures with characters. Ones in big fluffy costumes. #win

{In the past, she’s run screaming at the sight of them. We never have to go to Chuck E. Cheese – ever. We’ve skipped birthday parties because of her fears of big fuzzy characters.}

3. Next week is the Fourth of July. Can I interest you in some Patriotic Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Bark?

Or how about a Raspberry Arnold Palmer to serve at your party? There’s even an adult’s only version!

4. I ate my way through every bakery in Disneyland. I really wanted a Dole Whip but the line was consistently 20 minutes long. ???!!!


I plan to copycat SO many things. Which should I do first?

5. I wanted to eat my computer screen when I saw these Dark Chocolate {flourless} Avocado Brownies by Heather’s French Press.


6. Jordan discovered Full House. She’s totally in love with it. It’s like a blast from the past…and it makes me feel reallllly old.

7. We started Big Bang Theory on Netflix. OMG it’s so hilarious. Now I understand why people have been telling me to watch it for 6 years.

8. Want a doughnut?

A bunch of us made copycats of Gourdoughs Doughnuts in Austin. If you want a good drool, go check it out!

9. This is, quite possibly, my favorite picture from all of Disneyland.
