For Grown Ups: Strawberry Champagne Float

I had a busy week! Wednesday I had the day off yet I was busy busy. I did laundry, got my hair cut and colored and cleaned the house. Then my neighbor Clare and I went to get ice cream at my new favorite dessert shop, Scoops! I had heard of Scoops in several food blogs and magazines. It is a small hole in the wall place that is known for their homemade interesting flavors. We had one of the best things I have ever tasted, Pear Champagne Sorbet! I also had an amazing Red Velvet Cake ice cream, YUM! Thursday night I hosted a 3B girl's night. We watched Idol and made dinner. I made my Lemon Fish Picatta for the girls, they loved it. Friday and Saturday we worked so hard at Dream Dinners, I was exhausted! Last night we went to a Oscar's party hosted by some of Jeffrey's new friends. They had amazing cheeses, wines, snacks, truffle popcorn, fancy grilled cheeses and homemade cookies. It is insane how much I ate! The Oscars were fun, but the fashion was better, click here to see my run down of the Oscar fashions.

I made a new grown up dessert on Thursday for my 3bs. We fell in love with these strawberry champagne floats! Meg and Em were trying to lick the inside of the wine glass, so funny...Try them, they are so easy and perfect for a girlie party!
