Celebrating A New Baby


I’m quickly learning what it feels like to grow up – seems new and exciting changes are happening every day. In the past year many friends have gotten married, bought their first homes or moved away. Last week another of my old college friends hit a big milestone – she and her husband are expecting a baby girl this spring! You really know you’re growing up when friends start having babies.

My friend is one of the most caring and supportive people you will ever meet. She constantly puts others first and is always making others smile – she certainly made college an enjoyable experience for me! She’s truly a selfless person, and no one deserves to be blessed with a beautiful baby more than her.

She and her husband are school teachers in Houston, so I don’t get to see them very often – usually just major holidays. I’m disappointed that I probably won’t get to be there for the birth of their baby. Still, I’ve got the perfect gift idea for the new baby – a beautiful christening gown from SophiasStyle.com. I think she’ll be thrilled to have such a beautiful garment for such an important event in the baby’s life. I plan on sending the baptism dress to her as a Christmas gift.

I’d gladly spend a lot of money on a christening dress for my friend’s baby – she totally deserves it. The great thing about SophiasStyle.com is that I don’t have to spend a ton. I can purchase an absolutely gorgeous, high quality baptism gown at a discount price. I think the dress I picked out for the new baby will make my friend cry – that’s when you know it’s the perfect gift!

What life event made you realize you were officially “grown up?” Share your thoughts with us!

Be-witching Halloween Treats | SophiasStyle.com


I don’t know about you, but when a holiday or special occasion hits, I get caught up in it very easily. Halloween is of course no exception. The excitement and spirit of Halloween are so much fun, so why wait for Halloween night to celebrate the occasion? Throughout this whole month I’ve been infusing bits of Halloween cheer into my life.

I’ve already started decorating the yard with ghoulish (but cheerful) decorations and I’ve been researching Halloween crafts to make throughout the season. I came across these adorable witch hat cookies in a children’s magazine. I almost can’t believe how easy they are to make – it’s the perfect activity for kids!

For this project you will need:
• Chocolate cookies (homemade or store bought)
• Hershey’s Kisses
• Orange frosting (or any color you like)

Simply take your favorite chocolate cookies and place an unwrapped Hershey’s Kiss on top. Hold the kiss in place with a dab of frosting. You can decorate the “brim” of the hat with more swirls or lines of frosting. Voila – you’re done! You can use different colors of frosting and different sizes of cookies to make your own design unique. It’s all up to you! These are perfect for a classroom party at school or just a festive Halloween treat to keep around the house.

I plan to make these cookies with my daughter this weekend. I got her some great Halloween clothes from SophiasStyle.com to wear to school and just whenever she’s in the Halloween mood (which is often)! She can wear this Halloween outfit while we bake and decorate. I can just imagine all the cute photos I’ll get of her making witch hats!

Let us know how your witch hat cookies turn out!

Sweet Treats For Someone Special


I’m going to New York in a few weeks to visit an old college friend. I haven’t seen her in nearly two years, so needless to say I am beyond excited for our reunion. The weather this time of year is perfect – crisp and refreshing but not unbearably cold. I can’t wait to stroll the streets of New York City with her and catch up!

We’ve also got a lot of October (and specifically Halloween) memories from our college days together. We used to watch scary movies together and pass out candy at her apartment on Halloween night. I can’t believe how perfect the timing is – I’ll be at her apartment in New York for Halloween this year! To celebrate our friendship and our old college tradition, I wanted to get her a gift that was fun but also meaningful.

I thought a great surprise would be to send her this Halloween gift basket from SweetGourmetGifts.com. I’ve arranged for it to arrive at her apartment the day before I do with a special note. I think she’ll love it! We can feast on all these delicious treats while we catch up and pass out candy to trick-or-treaters.

Who knows what will have changed over the past two years. I just hope not the things I love most about her!
