Date Night

I had the most fabulous date night with my little man last night. We went and saw Toy Story 3D. It was a sweet coming of age movie. Mommies and little ones alike will love it!

Check out the fire screen behind us in the picture. I picked up the 4 dark brown shutters for $15 and then with  $2 worth of off white acrylic craft paint, I dry brushed the shutters. How chic!

Here are a couple of great cakes I have made. I use homemade buttercream and both these cakes have ribbon accents. No fondant here, yuck!

It's Summertime...

I have been blessed to have my nephew spend the week with my family. We tend to see him only at the holidays. The kids have played so well together and have had a blast.

I am finally getting in the groove of vacation. I even started rearranging furniture! The cleaning ladies will be here tomorrow and I don't think they have ever been here twice in a row where I haven't changed something!

Now I need to get motivated to paint the armoire in the breakfast room. Right now it contains my scrapbooking mess, but I am thinking of turning it into a dry bar with my wine fridge at the bottom.... I guess I better measure!

I have 6 weeks off... what kind of trouble can I get into? Stay tuned!
