YUMMIES + MO’ STYLIN | The Cream Recap, Part 2: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Cream.

Happy afternooeeeveningish, friendly faces, and welcome.  To the yummy in your tummy Part 2.

After you’ve scrolled through the whole enchilada below, I’d sure love to hear what you liked!

Now, it doesn’t have to be one thing you liked… it can be, for example, two things.  Even three things – though NOT four things – I’ll allow five things, you’ve got to be f**king kidding me if it’s six things, but I think seven things would make sense.  Eight things.  Nine things and I will take offense.  I could be talked into ten things, however eleven things???  GTFO of my face with that offer.  OMG 12 things would be so hilarious, DO IT I BEG YOU.  If you come at me with 13 things I will hack into your Facebook and set your relationship status to “It’s Complicated.”  14 things?  REALLY?   Don’t you dare say 14 things.  15 things is alright.

Okie dokie, I hope my hostile threats haven’t changed things between us!  I just… I have my things.  Get a little controlling sometimes… anywho!  Let’s get started, shall we?  



When our frenchie Bambino needs to crawl across my sternum with his nails to get from point a to point b for whatever pointless reason it is this time, there is a fine line between Bambino crawling over my sternum and Bambino opening up my chest for heart surgery with my sternum as the access point.

So, spending time with Bambino can go either way.  Not the case with the pros in this post.  All roads led to quality, everywhere I turned.  And with that we begin.

- CATS -

I have an addendum.  I have nowhere else to put it but I need to get it out of me so I am tucking it in right here.  It’s cat-related, if I wasn’t clear.  Honey just showed me the following youtube video he saw while reading Wired Magazine and it’s better than sex on a stick.  Unless you’ve been to any State fair anywhere in America.  They have fried sex on a stick there and it’s actually pretty good.  Much better than the fried cat.  Sorry, too far – I actually really do love cats, Brownie’s Honor.

Ok I just looked up “scouts honor brownies honor” to see if Brownie’s Honor is an actual thing to say, and the internet told me it is the act of *bleeping* three *bleepers* into a *bleep*.

Nothing.  Nothing is sacred.

I will not be telling you what the internet said for Brownie’s Honor.


You remember when I mentioned Morris Kitchen in pt. 1?  Their syrups were to diiiee for.  Enough for me to make an egregious grammatical mistake in the previous sentence just to hammer home a point.


Add to that, they were kind people. :)  Speaking of kind people, ↓ Landhaus, seen below, was THE BOMB.

Pharmacie Bar, killin it with a champagne station in coordination with Morris Kitchen, bringing endless possibility to the world of high class boozin’.

… qui est posseeebleuh?  TOUT!  *inside joke with people who took French*  *rendering it disqualified for being considered an inside joke*  *you see because I’m saying I was a geek who was usually ‘on the outside’ of the jokes*  *but also I was a geek who never achieved an A in French class*  *I’m not even sure I spelled those french words right*  *making me not even the cool kind of geek person, who can brag about all the promise her teachers saw in her, so early on*  Okay I’m done that was weird.

There is a thing called Pour Swagger.  ☝ This is what it looks like.

I love Instagram, and I was at this event, so it is fair to assume I instagrammed the event.  but in case you missed it live, here are the few shots I nabbed with my camera phone which ultimately will pale in comparison to the professional shots throughout this post – EVEN given that I used the cool instagram filters.  Even that.  That’s how quality the photogs were at this event.  The first I’ll share is of ma table and what was sur ma table.

what?  how’d that get in there?  apologies; Bambino was not sur ma table.  he was with his grandparents, gaining 4 lbs.  What I meant to share was THIS:

chocolattay popolattays!!  they went faster than life itself.  Joke’s on you:


More shots of stuff I made…

Bambino not right now, baby.  Mama’s busy with work.  Gimme ten, ok?  Also who the F Word has been shopping at American Eagle Outfitters in this family.

I’m thinking of posting a DIY here on TKB about how I made my wee booklet biz cards.  I think it might be fun for the blog.

P.S. – Special thanks to Shade who works with the ladies over at Bash Please for your kind help setting up, and also your general outstandingness in generality, generally speaking, amen.


I was serious when I asked you in Part 1 about these Lael Cakes.  They are no joke.

Bee’s Knees Baking Co. really knows how to pile it on

… in the most amazing ways!

The super lovely Alison of Alison Events (and not just because we share the same name AND spelling) and Peartree are responsible for THIS visual feast…

(Fun Fact: Liza Lubell named Peartree after her Mom.  You know I adore that kind of thing, you guys.)

I know at least one of you guys is going to love those bunny butts! (..on birch slices, next to air plants, within makeshift terrariums!)

Glitter + Rye made my face water.

..not a good look on me.

Hoping I can keep the *watering* localized to my mouth next time, should I be presented with such exquisitely colorful styling and design.

This first one’s from my phone using the instagram filter I abuse the most if you follow me on Twitter

Sometimes I say, “I wish you coulda seen this up close,” when describing something.  Not the case here – totally awesome in person and in pics, AMIRITE

 Some of you might remember when I instagrammed Michelle Edgemont‘s nook (she was right across from me).

Well I’d like you to see what I saw, but in better detail… so here’s a legit shot, from an actual professional in photography:

Add to that the fact that I just visited Michelle’s site and the girl shares my affinity for “HIGH KICKS.”  Well- what I mean is, she refers to the act of doing high kicks, like physically; and since I can’t do them, physically, because I haven’t stretched since my senior of college, I just say “high kick, woot!” on the blog all the time because I’m a f**king idiot.  But still this is freaking me out.  What is going on?!  Everything is moving so fast.  It is only when I am reminded of her extreme giftedness in the crafting arena, a-like a-so:

… that I am made aware again, of just how different we really are.

FINAL THRUST!  FORM OF: a fine fine vid from Landshark/Geoff Boothby:

(… did you watch it?  it’s amazing you should watch it.  go’head, I’ll wait…)

~ FIN ~

So you guys, now that we’ve completed Part Twizzle, lemme know if there was anything that you particularly loved from the event above!  Thanksies :)


If the in-no-way-veiled threat I laid down at the very start of this post made you start second-guessing yourself.. relax.  You can just say “all of the things.”  I understand it’s hard to pare down.

xoxo!  - Alison

…but 16 things and I buy a private jet, invite you on a *business trip* to Singapore, cultivate trust among town elders, climb the ranks of the area police force and then frame you with the crime of graffiti vandalism.  Make it 17 things and I sell your story for an episode of Locked Up Abroad.

P.S. – 18 things gets you a huggie n’ a kissie.  MUAH!!

    First of all omg the cats video. I just…I can’t. I’m on replay #3 and I’m sitting in a tent made of our own bed sheets to contain the glare.
    Other than that I’m already at 12 things I love about this post after one read thru (ex: the PUSHPINS!), so 18 THINGS seems pretty reachable. But can we make it a huggy and a coffee? I usually don’t kiss on the first date. :*

  2. Lena on August 29, 2012

    Why did I have to see this without having eaten breakfast and before lunch? Now all I can think is: CUPCAKES, maple glazed bacon, Fee Brother’s Bitters, Champagne cocktails, CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM, trifle cups, I need those rocks glasses, CHOCOLATE POPS, Ginger syrup, which leads me to Diablos, wondering what kind of lemonade the preserved lemon syrup would yield, FRENCHIE, preferably CHOCOLATE so he and Bambs could make sweet multi-cultural love, How cool is Paper & Cup, gold flatware, ruffled white plates and gold rimmed glasses, and those damn adorable teeny pencils washi-taped to those damn adorable neon cards.

    How’d I do?!

  3. Alison on August 29, 2012

    Lena – right?! And trust me, everything was as delicious as it looked.

    P.S. I think you jotted 16 things, so pack your bags we’re flying to Singapore DON’T WORRY IT’LL BE GREAT.

  4. Seeta on August 29, 2012

    So fantastic! wish I was there :)

  5. Crystal on August 29, 2012
