weekend recap!

Well dear bloggie friends,

I've been a blog slacker lately but I've had good reason I've been knee deep in cake and icing. Last week I completed my very first official wedding cake :)

It was a giant 4 tier cake and took pretty much the entire week between making fondant,baking 4 tiers of cake, and the decoration. I'm glad my first one is behind me I feel a lot better about it now then I did this time last week. I seriously doubted myself through the whole process but my husband the encourager helped me pull through it. I thank God everyday He knew I'd need someone who could lift me up when I doubted myself.

So here it is my first wedding cake :)



Saturday after the wedding I pretty much slept the rest of the day away since I was pretty much exhausted mentally, and physically.

Sunday it rained and rained so we went to church and came home with good intentions of doing housework but decided the rain was a great excuse to snuggle up on the couch with blankets and watch some Netflix. Hubs and I started watching the Lost series recently and we are totally hooked but we just started it so all you Lost fanatics out there don't spill any secrets :) Sunday evening our small group started a new Bible Study we're doing "From Anger to Intimacy" by Gary Smalley and I'm really excited to see how God will be working through this study.

I'm actually really excited about this week because we don't have big plans it should be a nice relaxing week with the usual activities but nothing extra thrown in it will be wonderful to hopefully get caught up on housework and lets not even talk about the gargantuan pile of laundry waiting to be done :(

Well anyway hope everyone had a lovely weekend and the week is starting off great :)

Later Alligators....

I think you did a wonderful job on the cake! It looks so classy and fabulous! I'm sure you feel a great sense of accomplishment with that under your belt, huh? Good for you-taking advantage of a cozy rainy day to just snuggle up and watch a movie...so often I opt for the "practical" choice, and I know I'm missing out on good connecting moments and happy memories as a result. Thanks for the reminder :-) Happy Monday to you-hooray for weeks that aren't quite so busy!

Great job on the cake!! I've recently been considering taking up cake decorating as a hobby as it seems so fun :) And you are right - yesterday was a very rainy day here in OKC, but I secretly love days like that - so I was happy! Have a great week!

The cake looks AWESOME! You did a great job. I always doubt myself through processes, too. But, it always works out...

Jocelyn said...

Wow! You did a fabulous job on the cake! Wedding cakes are scary to do...but they always turn out in the end:-)

it's amazing!!!! Totally beautiful and perfect, I would hire you on the spot! I have always wanted to take up cake decorating but I have a feeling that won't happen until we have kids and I can quit working!

And your evening curled up watching netflix sounds amazing, we did Monday night football last night and my heart was beating out of my chest the whole game! Definitely not relaxing!
