if my mother was cookie, she would be a chocolate chip cookie. because it's everybody's favorite -- the neutral choice that can fare well with any crowd.
if my mother was a cake, she would be a lemon cake with marshmallow frosting. because it's the most perfect balance of the best things.
if my mother was a pie, she would be a caramel pecan pie. because even though she is hilariously nuts sometimes, (we had a whole conversation the other day about how she couldn't find her pliers) she has an abundant amount of comfort and sweetness, just when you need it.
if my mother was a doughnut, she would be a cinnamon twist. because she is the type of thing that consoles you on a bad day.
if my mother was a bread, she would be pumpkin bread. because she is always in style, no matter the season.
if my mother was a cupcake, she would be a huckleberry cupcake with cream cheese frosting. because she is fresh and classic, all at once.
if my mother was confection, she would be a meringue. because she is lighthearted and elegant.
if my mother was a baked good she would be all of these things combined into one. and it would be the best baked good you ever had. all parts sweet, loving, comforting, compassionate, and funny combined into one dish.
happy mother's day, mama. you are single best sugar lovin', cookie eatin', and cake chompin' partner- in-crime a girl could ask for.
cheers to you and all that you are. now, go have some cobbler.

bellingham has quite the saturday market, complete with shoeless men with flattened mohawks, unicycling performances, and lots and lots of birkenstocks. and then, of course, the usual things you find at a farmers market as well. but the food. nomsballs, friends. and that's really the only thing i can tell you about it. here's some pictures, if you must.

look! a pretty flower picture that i took in a very staged format! happy friday, i guess?
in case anyone was worried about the people who live above me who like to express their love for each other very, uh, physically? they have added vocal expression to the mix. yes, windows open, vocal expression. also, in case you were wondering it kept us up for an hour last night. so that's...something? a lot of things actually. mostly just effing annoying. i even yelled out my window for them to close their window...nothing. so then i yelled some profanities...sorry, mom! but i am a lady!...? i mean, look at those flowers! that feminine touch is undeniable.
that's all. shalom! (is offensive to use the word shalom if you're not jewish? i googled it and everything...)

so i thought: hey, it's been a while since i've blogged and i really have nothing to say. oh! but i do have pictures...business related! and thus, this stupid post was born. from one business owner to my mother and spam sites (the readers of this blog) here are my tips to becoming a successful, ahem, businesswoman.
1. you gotta look the part to be the part. hence, my danksos and chicballs bidnez cards. brand yourself people! and worry about the taxes and certifications and liability insurance and invoice drama later!
2. refer to your clients as "clients" (or your brides as "brides", in my case) in front of not only your friends (they will be super annoyed but refer to number one above) but strangers as well. sound sophisticated, you know? even if you just worked a family function and everyone there has a blood line obligation to be nice to you.
3. get on pinterest and copy the cool things that other business owners do. after all, all you did was pay sixty bucks for a piece of paper declaring you legitimate! you don't know what you're doing!
4. shamelessly promote yourself. but do it in kind of a joking, witty way so you sound charming and they are intrigued by what you have to offer.
and then just own that business! yeah, you! own it! ha, see what i did there?
