Wedding Celebration and Cake!

I feel like a lot has happened since I last blogged! First of all, my father-in-law’s wedding was great! Fred and Kim tied the knot in a small, intimate ceremony with family and it was beautiful. Jimmy and I are so incredibly happy for them!

I am happy to report that the cake and cupcakes turned out well and were enjoyed by all! I started all the preparations on Thursday morning and hardly thought about anything else until the wedding was over on Saturday night.

It was definitely an intense few days, but so worth it to see the happy couple enjoy their Harley Davidson-themed cake! If anyone is interested, I can do a separate post on the cake and cupcake details.

Fred and Kim are now off on their honeymoon in the Outer Banks, which is such a lovely place to honeymoon. I may be a bit biased, though 😉

Other things of note include how incredibly blessed and thankful I have been feeling lately. Do you guys know P from Will Study For Food? If not, I’d recommend checking out her blog. She makes me want to live in California and is totally rocking the whole PhD thing!

P sent me the sweetest package of baby clothes last week. Thank you so, so much, P! Jimmy and I absolutely love the little sleepers and were ohhing and ahhing over how cute they are.

Also, my mom and sister both gave me early Mother’s Day gifts, which was so unexpected and thoughtful. Hannah gave me a few adorable mom-themed Origami Owl charms for my locket and my mom gave me the Magnolia Table cookbook and a mom mug!

Lastly, I mentioned in the post before this that Jimmy and I had our anatomy scan last week. We are so excited to share that baby is healthy and doing great! We also found out baby’s gender, which I will share in my next post.

Maybe I’ll do a little pregnancy update since we’ve hit the halfway point?! Long story short: we are feeling blessed, loved, and excited! God is good.

Alright, I am off to get my Monday started. I was hardly on my computer last week due to the busyness of pet sitting, unexpectedly needing to buy a new washing machine, cake baking, and wedding celebrating! It was quite an exciting week and I’m hoping to catch up around the house and blog world this week 🙂

Ending the Sick Daze and Cake Baking

Hey! Well, Jimmy and I are finally starting to feel better since our sick daze last week. Yay! I ended up at the doctor earlier this week and was diagnosed with a sinus infection.

I had a feeling that would be the case, as similar to last time I had a sinus infection, my teeth hurt every time I did anything that would shake my body or head (apparently, your sinuses can press on your oral cavity if they’re swollen…lol). Thankfully, I was able to get some antibiotics and am on the mend.

Jimmy and I were talking about how thankful we are that we live in a country where we can simply go to the doctor and get medicine. From the time I went to the doctor to when I was taking my first dose of antibiotics was only a few hours. What a blessing.

I’ve been spending the week working (pet sitting and real estate work/photography) and wedding cake baking! Surprisingly, I don’t have a lot of pictures from the week. I have one from pet sitting and one from Starbucks.

It turns out Starbucks has pretty tasty smoothies! The one I had was chocolate and banana flavored.

While I didn’t take a lot of pictures, I did film two vlogs. In one week! Crazy.

The first one was completely random. I was a total sick zombie and had awkward encounters with the people who replaced our gutters. I’m so glad we had our gutters and fascia replaced! It makes such a difference in the look of our house 🙂

I filmed the wedding cake baking vlog on Thursday, and was starting to feel better and less zombie-ish. I’m getting nervous for the big baking day!

Well, I’m going to get going. I have a busy weekend ahead! I’m excited for Saturday because I’m going to a ladies lunch at our church. It’s always such a fun time of fellowship and great food.

What are you doing this weekend?
