This was the birthday cake I made last year for my daughter’s teacher. It was only a few weeks into the school year and I haven’t really gotten to know the teacher all that much just yet. My daughter did tell me her teacher loved chocolate and the color red. This was not my best work but I can only do so much for an hour…or two. I still think it’s ok looking coming from someone who grew up thinking she’ll be wearing a lab coat to work when she grows up. Haha. Excuses excuses.
Love these pearly whites? Hee hee. It wasn’t too long ago when my little girl’s “Tooth Fairy” was scrambling (Yes, scrambling! Believe it or not!) for ideas when she realized she was soon going to receive the historic first tooth from her ward. What’s the going rate for a tooth? The first tooth? Should she use fairy dust? A wise (that is, more expereinced) Tooth Fairy said she gave her sons a silver dollar for the first tooth they lost. It was too late to buy morgan silver dollars when she got the suggestion. So she just ended up rolling 3 dollar bills and tying curly bows around it. She left a note as well. It was so much simpler where I come from. No Tooth Fairy! Haha!
For the second year in a row, we went strawberry picking with friends at Sweet Berry Farm. True to its name, Sweet Berry Farm grows some sweet sweet strawberries! I just love the sight of row after row after row of these bright red sweet somethings! It would be a dream come true if someday, we find ourselves with a farm that is abundantly filled with fruits and veggies that we truly love. For now, I will have to start small. I should probably start with an herb garden. I’ve already got the seeds and some soil. All I need to do now is check out the outdoor planters at SimplyPlanters.com and soon! Wish me luck?
Check-out part of the soles of my favorite running shoes. I’m seeing less and less of them. And I have only started using them in November last year. That’s five months ago! I’ve only used this pair of shoes in one race, a half-marathon last January. But the grind that goes with training took its toll on my shoes. And that was just the excuse I needed to get a new pair. Running is more hard work for me than it is fun. But that’s fine with me. I’ve gotten just a little lighter that I won’t need to worry about breaking a lab scale when I get on it. Yay me! Let’s get walkin’, joggin’ and runnin’!
