"The label you give yourself cannot impact external forces that are not motivated by your own psychology or influenced by a third party's pre-existing consciousness of you. We are all presented with reasons to struggle which come from completely external forces; to pretend that one is not struggling is either arrogance or an admission of defeat. To admit that one is struggling is a sign and a source of strength." - Evan A. Baker

Happy Birthday Tracy!

My darling friend Phoenix's birthday came and went in the beginning of June, but we were JUST finally able to spend some time together due to our crazy hectic actor schedules! I was going to take her out for an ice cream, but it was just too hot. So I made her an ice cream cookie sandwich instead. She popped by after a print audition (we're so LA).

This was so easy! Take some cookies (I used store bought cookies, cause who feels like baking right now?)

Place one upside down.

Now take some softly melted ice cream (just buy some new stuff, and it will be of the perfect consistency just from the ride home).

Plop a scoop on top of the upside down cookie.

Top the other cookie.

And squuuuuuuish!


Now pop in a birthday candle on the side, and Happy 18-27th birthday!

(Cute, huh? Phoenix is shy!)


  1. I'm not...that...shy....

    Love you so much, girlie. :)

  2. What a brilliant idea for a dessert. And best of luck to you with all of your acting endeavors.

  3. Sweet dessert! It belongs on my blog!!!!! ;)


Play nice.
