Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday Everyone! Yesterday was a good day since Kyle came home from his trip to CO. Since he was coming home I figured it was a good excuse to bake. So I made him this cake entirely from scratch: funfetti cake with vanilla buttercream. It came out amazing! I will be making this as a 1/2 sheet cake for his Change of Command next month.


We also found out that we have a formal to attend next week so we are off to the mall for me to find a dress. I'm not sure the exact style I want yet but I will know the perfect dress when I see it. Maybe we will make our way to the outlets as well so I can stock up on spring/summer clothes. :)

Our shirts for the mud runs finally came!!! I love them. Can't wait to wear them in 2 weeks.


I hope you all have a great day!

  1. That cake looks yummy! I am terrible at making them from scratch and decorating them. Can I hire you for my husband's winging? :)

  10. I think I like the idea of going to a formal more than I would actually like going and socializing with random people. I can't wait to see your dress!

  18. Funfetti how cool. Scratch cakes easy. Practice is good. I love tp bake more than cook but my family needs fed. Today I'm making a couple pies for Easter lunch. Hugs to Kyle and you too.

  22. ...and then you can come bake me one of those cakes. It looks amazing! Great job with the piping!

    Formals, like Casey said, are more fun to think about than they are to actually do. Eh. Dressing shopping is fun though if you've got good stores!
