As I mentioned, Tuesday was my Sophie’s birthday. I did not mention a fabulous smashing birthday party, because we had a non-party for her. Why? Well, I’m 8 months pregnant and Sophie is very shy and hates parties. If 30 people that she absolutely adores are in a room together, that is about 22 people too many. So, we decided to forgo our adult wishes and traditions and let the girl have it her way. We just had a small, informal gathering at my mom’s with a few cousins and my grandmothers (because really, I am not going to tell my 91-year-old grandmother she can’t come to Sophie’s non-party!)
We DID have presents – although she only opened about half of them there, but instead of cake we had something super-fun and yummy. We had LOLLIES. Lulee’s Lollies, to be exact. What are they? They are delicious, sinful, CAKE ON A STICK dipped in chocolate. That’s right, the world’s perfect food! CAKE ON A STICK DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE! And the best part is that Lulee (who happens to be my BFF Luanne) can make her Lollies in just about any flavor and shape you could ever want! Since Sophie looooooooooves her some Veggie Tales, Lulee whipped up Lollies in the shapes of all her Veggie friends:
She couldn’t bring herself to decapitate Bob, Larry, Jimmy the Gourd, or Junior Asparagus, but the rest of us had no problem doing so!
Bob was Strawberry flavored, Larry my fave Key Lime, Jimmy was also Red Velvet, and Junior was Butter Pecan! And they were all AMAZING!!
So friends, I am telling you do yourselves a favor. Getcha some Lulee’s Lollies for your next special occasion! (if you aren’t local to Dayton, she does ship!) She can do specialty lollies like the Veggie ones – you can see tons of pics at her website – (Hello Kitty, Disney, any kind of animal, even skulls for Halloween!) – or just plain old beautifully decorated round, flavored lollies.
But seriously. Cake on a STICK. Getcha some! Check out Lulee’s Facebook page and website, and remember, she is my BFF. And she totally did NOT pay me to do this post, although she did give me 50% off on the Lollies. (Geesh she drives a hard bargain!!)
