Happy Fathers Day

Ok, so I realize this post is a few days late but that's how my life's been lately...hectic and behind schedule! But anyways, I do want to give a special shout out to my dad who I love very much!!

I've always been a daddy's girl and I will always be! I really couldn't ask for a better dad. And I'm so excited for my future kids because he is going to be just the best grandfather to them! He is really the most kind and compassionate individual you could imagine. In college, he wrote me a card every single week just to let me know I was loved and that he missed me. I hope that someday I could even be half the parent that he is. I love you Dad!

21st birthday cake

I'll keep this post short and sweet but here is a picture of the cake I made last weekend for a 21st birthday. I was asked to do pink and gold with glitter! So, I used pink fondant, gold luster dust, and pink and gold sparkles! Voila!

Last weekend we had the opportunity to help my good friend Alison and her mom, Sharon, with a yard sale fundraiser for their upcoming trip to Kenya. This will be Alison's third trip to Kenya and Momma Sharon's second. We had a great time hanging out with Alison, her husband Paul, Sharon, and of course Gram on Friday and Saturday. We were thrill that they were able to make almost $2000 for their trip! God is certainly going to do great things through them in Kenya once again. Keep Alison and Sharon in your prayers as they leave on July 28th and will be gone for about 14 days.
In cake news, I made two this weekend. One was a Mario Kart cake and it may be my favorite one so far! It was fun to be able to be creative with the fondant and try some different things. Chris and I delivered it on Sunday to the precious little birthday boy who was turning 5 and he and his parents seemed to really like it!! The second cake was a girl baby shower cake. Until this weekend I had done only boy cakes so it was fun to be a little girly! Here are a few pics, enjoy!

2 years!

On Monday Chris and I celebrated our anniversary! It's hard to believe that we've already been married for two years! We spent our anniversary weekend in PA with my parents attending my cousin's wedding. The wedding was at a beautiful state park where we took the picture below (which is not the best, but it was the best of the bunch we took!). Our actual anniversary was spent driving 7 hours home...but hey, we were together right?? Anyways, I feel very blessed to have spent two wonderful years with Chris and I look forward to many more!

"be a best friend
tell the truth
and overuse i love you
and go to work
do your best
don't out smart your common sense
never let your praying knees get lazy
and love like crazy"

Happy Birthday Alison

Yesterday was my good friend Alison's 30th birthday. She and I lived together for 2 years before our hubbies came along. I have never laughed so hard in my life as when I'm with Alison. She is a real blessing in my life and in the lives of so many people. Here are some pictures from her 30th birthday celebration!!

They know how to have fun at Mi Pueblo!
