Poodle skirt cookies

My daughter Isabelle was in the high school spring musical Grease.  
I wanted to make her (and her posse of peeps) poodle skirt cookies to celebrate months of hard work in rehearsals.

The musical was amazing - unbelievable what this little high school was able to pull off!

I was smiling from start to finish!
Here is my girl in her poodle skirt with good friend Marley.

It was a full day on Saturday.
We also drove into Washington D.C. to watch Ted run his first marathon!  
It was a bit of a logistical nightmare getting into the city with so many roads closed, and trying to figure out where we could spot him.  There were 30,000 runners AND there was a shamrock fest going on at RFK stadium where the finish line was - it was a mad house!  

The weather was supposed to be very cold and rainy so we wore layers of clothing and warm coats plus a backpack loaded with umbrellas, ponchos, and warm clothing for Ted's girlfriend Katherine after she finished her half marathon.
We were really loaded down, so of course it was sunny and 60.
I felt like I ran a mini marathon from all the walking!

A full day and great memories!


  1. What great cookies and I'm sure all of the cast for Grease really appreciated your cookies.

    Congrat. to your son and daughter on their accomplishments.

  2. That are adorable! I love Greese! I can't wait till my kids start to do stuff like that.

  4. A great weekend, your daughter looks like you, Lisa. Love the cookies. I had a poodle skirt, in pink and black, when I was about 4 or 5! Complete with a pink and black stuffed poodle. xo

  5. You've had a busy weekend, my friend. Your daughter is a talented young lady. Your cookies are adorable and how they must have loved them.
