Google Search #1: So today while watching the Today Show I realized I didn’t know Prince Williams’ last name. Um, is this totally common knowledge and I am just a total moron? Well, peeps, the reason why I didn’t know this is that Prince William doesn’t really have a last name. It is Prince William of Wales.
His full name is William Arthur Phillip Louis Windsor, so his surname is sort of Windsor, though his grandmother (the Queen) has stipulated it is Mountbatten-Windsor, but the legal process necessary to change it is not yet complete. I didn’t go so far as to google whether he had a driver’s license…but that might be up next.
Google Search #2: Do donkeys have umbilical cords? I have a friend and she has mini-donkeys and I wondered if they came out attached. Just so you know…they do. Gross. (Is this common knowledge???)Google Search #3: What is the gestational period for a mini-donkey? For reasoning on this question, see above. 11-13 months and they are 20 – 30 pounds at birth.
Google Search #4: Which then got me wondering what the gestational period is for a dog. People, 9 weeks. Like no time.Google Search #5: My friend (the one with the mini-donkeys) and I were talking about the show What Not to Wear. Do you guys remember that guy who was the host before Clinton???
Okay, I hope you learned something today! (Or do I just not know anything???) Tomorrow I am bringing you some things I am loving.

For you April Fool's Day lovers, you will love all the fun ways to play with your food this Friday. Check them all out at Tip Junkie. Just to prove how fun these are, the first picture is not french fries, but cinnamon sugar sticks and jam. Um, hello cuteness.
This is not a hint to anything at all. I promise. But I am in love with pink and gray and I really loved this room featured on Spearmint Baby.
With April Showers on the horizon, I thought these cupcakes featured on Cupcakes Take the Cake were beyond clever.
I just really loved these flower arrangements. The birch bark, the colors, everything. These were featured on Spearmint Weddings via Emmaline Bride.
Not sure if you guys read the blog Glorious Sweets, but her sweets are truly amazing. Look how beautiful her purse cookies are!

Oddly, I happened to have all of the ingredients on hand (a minor miracle):
Stick of Butter
1/4 cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup of Powdered Sugar
1/2 Cup of Chocolate Chips
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
Some Graham Treats for Dipping
You start by mixing the butter and cream cheese in a bowl with your mixer.

Her sweets table was fabulous!
This was above the sweet's table...probably would have been nice to have gotten the whole pic together. But I guess this will encourage you to check her blog for pics in the next week or two!

Never fear, though, my lack of posting didn't mean I gave up reading. I do have a few faves from this week.
I loved these party lights featured on Attention 2 Detail. They are all made from items from Ikea (sigh---surely Target would have something close) - cupcake liners and party lights. Love! You can get the full instructions from Ikea Hackers.
Lastly, you might begin to think I have Jello obsession between last week's post on Jello and this week's post on Jello. In reality, I haven't had Jello (other than in Jello pretzel salad - which, sidenote- totally rocks) since I was 5. However, I thought this Jello featured on Tangled and True was beyond beautiful.
You know how photobooth props are all the rage, right? (They totally are. Though, truth be told, I have never actually seen any in real life.) I thought these featured on Celebrations at Home via One Sweet Party were very clever.

Adorable iPhone covers from kate spade via Styling Grace.
Love, love, love this wreath made entirely out of styrofoam cups from Twig & Thistle via Everyday Celebrating.
Stem Fabulous Parties posted the cutest DIY Printable invitations that Paper Source is now offering. I love the florals!
Remember that Project Runway episode where the designers got to create their own fabric?? Now, the rest of us can, too! Hoot Design Company did a great post on how to design your own fabric and have it printed by Spoonflower.
When I used to have my floral company, we did several "pave" arrangements that looked like purses or other everyday items. P is for Party posted one of the most clever floral arrangements - a floral rattle. I am in love! See the full post on On to Baby and see the florist's page at Shannon Leahy Events.
And for your reading pleasure, my college roommate and good friend, Janie, posted this on my previous post naming the winner of the Pioneer Woman book. I am starting a petition to get her to blog more. Just beg her in the comments below. She is seriously the funniest person I have ever met. I heart you, Jane!! (For those who don't know - Pudge is one of my dogs.)
