Weekly Round-Up + Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

pumpkin whoopie pies

This week was a bit of a whirlwind – in a good way – but we just got back to San Diego and are little exhausted, so T.G.I.F.! I’d like to give a big shout-out to everyone that attended our Hip Hostess Halloween event in Dallas last night – you guys were so much FUN! Everyone from the party guests to the staff at The Apartment was so welcoming and gracious… so thanks for making our very first trip to the Lone Star State such a great experience! I’ll be posting some of Tim’s Halloween cocktail recipes here soon…and you can actually already find the Vampire Kiss Martini recipe over at Real Simple!

There was a lot going on this week between traveling & the event prep, so I didn’t get quite as much posted to the blog as originally planned… which means that next week is going to be extra jam-packed with lots of fun things to share! In the meantime, here are some highlights this week from HWTM & beyond…

I attended your event in Dallas last night and had so much fun. The presentation, food, and drinks were awesome!

When we arrived my fiancee commented on how expensive the decor looked. He’s very frugal (aka CHEAP ;)) so when he saw you create a super chic candle holder out of pantyhose he was so impressed!

We would love the recipe for the Chambord Margarita shots that they served in the cooler room. So yummy!

I’ve been drooling over these for some time now. Looks like this is just the push I need to finally make (and inhale!) them. So much for my pants fitting.
