happy news and the summer blahs.
First off by popular request here's the cheeseburger cake I made for a dear friend's husband's b-day :)
I have been a real blogging slacker lately as life and it's complications weigh on my mind. I still love my little peice of the internet, but it has become difficult lately to post as there are just things that don't need to be voiced here.
In happy news my mom gets a break from chemo treatments and blood tests. At her doctor's visit yesterday the team decided she was strong enough to get a 3 month break from treatments. She is over the moon excited and so am I. We're having a girl's day this Saturday afternoon to celebrate. I am seeing a visit to our favorite little cupcake bakery downtown in our future! This break couldn't have come at a better time. We thank God for His goodness and graciously accept our 3 month reprieve.
Mr. A and I joined our hometown's community center last weekend and they have open gym night, and for our date night tonight we're going to go play a little one on one basketball. Mr. A will probably school me but it'll still be a nice break from the stress of everyday life. Since we're both moping around lamenting the end of the NBA playoffs and realizing we now have 2 months to wait until college football season which by far is both of our fave time of the year we decided to just make our own games for a while :).
Saturday starts bright and early with cake class I absolutely love teaching cake and find I learn more teaching it than I did when I was the student :) After class I'm picking up mom for our Girl's Day extravaganza.
I have a confession to make Mr. A and I have missed church for 4 Sunday's in a row we've either had something going on or overslept so I am beyond thrilled that Sunday we will make Sunday school and church services I am thrilled that we're getting back to a regular routine that includes church I miss it when we don't go. After services our Sunday school group Oasis is meeting for lunch together and fellowship we are so lucky and blessed with this group and I feel like I haven't seen them in forever so I'm thrilled to get to spend some time with them. After lunch we're meeting our friends Mr. and Mrs. D and their puppy Tito at the dog park with our baby girl Missy.
So now a question to all you wonderful bloggie lovelies, anyone who knows me knows that I am not a summer girl I am an autumn girl through and through so I often feel I have to make an extra effort to enjoy myself in the summer and I'm going to do that anyone have any tips on fun things we can do this summer to keep ourselves entertained?
