Happy Tuesday friends! I just delivered a fun cake for a little boy’s birthday party tonight. I thought I would share since it seems to be a pretty popular theme for boys lately. It is a Minecraft Cake and cupcakes. Although I have to admit ignorance here, until I was asked to make this cake I had no idea what Minecraft was and had to do research first :).

My half marathon was yesterday! I’ve had so much support from my friends and followers I feel very blessed. Many of you have asked for an update so here it is… Read the rest of this entry
For the last few weeks in science my kids have been learning about our Solar System. We have studied the Sun, Moon, stars, planets, and other bodies in the Solar System. It has been a lot of fun teaching and seeing them get so excited about our Solar System! I was trying to come up with a fun craft project while we were studying stars and I was in the middle of brainstorming how to get my kids to brush their teeth long enough. I put both things together and came up with this…
Hey friends! I’m writing a rare personal post today. Not very often do I bare my heart like this in my blog, so be gentle with your comments please! I have a bucket list, do you? One of the items on my bucket list is to run a half marathon someday. Two years ago I mentioned this to one of my closest and dearest friends. Pretty sure from there the conversation went like this, “Hey! Let’s start running together! We can start small with 5ks!” My awesome friend Cheryl cautiously replied, “Sounds good.” Love that woman, the first person to hear this dream of mine, supported me, and even let me drag her along!

Hey friends! Do you have that one cereal that when you eat it takes you right back to childhood? Well anytime I have a big bowl of Rice Krispies Cereal I remember Saturday morning cartoons and footie jammies with my little brother. Good memories can come from the simplest things in life! I would like to share with you a recipe today that my kids and I like to make with Rice Krispies. Read the rest of this entry
This week I had an ivory wedding cake to do and a really fun OSU gnome cake to do. I love the simple wedding cake the bride chose, a spice cake with ivory cream cheese icing and they will be adding flowers at the reception site. I’ve heard they are fall colors, I think that will be lovely. The groom’s cake was a lot of fun, it is a butter cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. It also has poured dark chocolate ganache and chocolate covered strawberries in OSU colors. The gnome the bride chose as a topper is adorable and I love the final cake! Here are some pics Read the rest of this entry
Now that it is fall I have lots of great activities I cannot wait to do with my kiddos! One we did last week was a blast and the kids played with it for almost an hour. I have let the kids play in shaving cream on our dinning room table before since it is fun to write in and just a fluffy sensory experience. This time though I wanted to give it a fall twist and tried a few new things.
Happy First Day of Fall friends! This year instead of getting out my old fall wreath for the front door I made a new one. The old one I had made was used for 8 years and looking worse for the wear. I just love burlap and have seen a few cute burlap wreaths floating around Pinterest so I went for it. I actually had a few rolls of burlap table runner leftover from my oldest daughter’s 5th birthday party over a year ago. If you are a reader, you might remember that it was a shabby chic cowgirl party found here. I’m glad I held onto all of that burlap!
