Pink Hippo Party # 17

This weekend was super crazy busy!  I hosted a "surprise" 65th birthday party for my mother in law.. so there was lots of shopping, cooking, baking and cleaning!  Here is a quick peek at her birthday cake..

Some 4 year old who shall remain nameless decided to take a quick taste of the orange frosting!
Oh well.. it's a good thing he's cute! Stop by later this week for the recipe for my carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut!
Oh yeah and since I love handmade.. this is the present that I got her!
Victoriana Locket Ring - Free Shipping
So enough about me.. now it's on to you guys.. here are my features from last week's party!
First up is this amazingly adorable dress album by Maria @
She has a hysterical story and tutorial to share on this one!

Next up is this super yummy looking vegetarian chili by Heather @
 Oh I am such a sucker for chili um anything Mexican so she had me at Rotel!

Last but certainly not least is this awesome necklace made from scraps and leftover beads
