Anyway, I'm back, and I've got some sharin' to do!
Eric and I went to Niagara Falls over Labor Day weekend. We don't get to go away for fun very often, and since my birthday is August 31st, I like to designate that long weekend my "birthday weekend" and use it as an excuse to celebrate. Just a couple of pics:
And in other news...We (and by "we" I mean myself and a boat load of friends) have spent the past month or so raising money for Clarabug's Quest for a Cure, and this past weekend was our picnic/walk to cap off this year's efforts. We raised almost $6,000 this year, all of which will go toward The Golisano Children's Hospital and Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY. For more info, check out the website at Clarabug.org.
Woohoo!! $6,000!! We ROCK!
I made this cute ladybug themed cake for the picnic. Check it out.
I wont tell you how incredibly frustrating certain aspects of this cake were, and I won't point out the many imperfections associated with it. I'll just say it went over VERY well, and was completely devoured, even the little ladybugs, which I made cake-ball style a la Bakerella.
More to share, soon enough...pssst...I have an apple crisp in the oven. More about that tomorrow.
And maybe a card, tomorrow, too.
