Messy apple pear tart

You and I, we should have a heart to heart.
Don't worry; I won't talk about the amount of calories in this pie.
I'm also not about to tell you that you should really do your dishes. 
{This ain't your mothers blog, girl...}
{Lame pun intented}

sweet pretzels are used as tart crust

Seriously though, we should talk about the season aproaching.
That's right; party-season is aproaching. 
This season is also known as awesome-season. Put-on-your boots-and-dance-season. Or my favorite: this-girl-can-boogie-and-I'm-about-to-show-you-so-season.
Because we girls should stick together, I made a small list of advice you should consider deeply.

1. Never be the slutty potato
Theme parties are awesome.
Slutty random theme things are less awesome.
They're actually kinda (major) lame and predictable.
You're better than this, girl! Seriously. Be an awesome potato! 

2. Read the invitation like a boss
People who tell you everyone is going to be dressed up are probably lying.
People who tell you no-one is going to be dressed up probably didn't read the invitation for themselves.

3. Put some flat ballerina's in your bag
Just in case.

4. If you're searching the internet for a bear costume... you're doing things right.

5. Don't be the first one to go home.

Yay for messy dessert! I love pies best when the fruit inside is just in a delightful jumble, don't you? :)
