Hi guys! It’s currently Monday afternoon and it’s raining. I have a bunch of laundry I need to fold before I take Mavis to her puppy training class in a few hours, but I feel like blogging instead 🙂
I mentioned that I was making a Lego cake in my last post and promised to share how it went, so here it is!
The cake was for my cousin’s birthday party, and since there were a little more than 30 people expected to be there, I decided to make another small cake just in case the Lego one wasn’t enough.
I was putting the finishing touches on the second cake at like 5:00 pm and we were leaving for the party at 6:30, so I didn’t have a chance to do a lot with it decoration-wise, but here’s the other cake.
The party was great, and it was so sweet to see my cousin check out his cake and just enjoy his evening with family and friends. He gave every single person a hug and said thank you after opening their gift. I have never met a 12-year-old boy that considerate and thankful!
After the busyness of the week, Jimmy and I were able to sleep in until almost 8:00 am on Saturday and it was amazing. We spent the day together and it was just what we needed.
We picked out a gift for my father-in-law’s birthday, bought Lola a new bed (which she promptly peed on about two hours later, lol), used a gift card at Bahama Breeze for lunch, and had Dunkin Donuts coffee.
Afterwards, I worked on a watercoloring project and mowed our neighbors lawn. Thankfully the yellow jackets that stung me last time seemed to be dormant!
I’m excited to show you guys the finished project! Basically, it’s going to be some watercolor art in 8×10 frames I picked up from Target a few weeks ago.
I went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to buy art prints off of Etsy, have pictures printed, or make my own art. I decided to make my own watercolor art because I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted and it was free 😉
I don’t have too much else to report from the weekend, aside from the fact that Mavis is becoming a daddy’s girl!
