Anniversary Cake

Nolan and I have been married twelve years as of June 6th at 5:59 p.m! (Why 5:59? I didn't want the 6th month, 6th day 6th hour. Too weird.) So to commemorate the occasion, we went out of town on a romantic getaway!

Well, no, we didn't. We all got the flu, and I canceled my parents trip so that they could stay with the boys so that they wouldn't get sick, too. So instead, we're getting well and going to my in-law's house for dinner tomorrow. I asked if I could bring dessert, because I wanted to recreate the amaretto cake we had at our wedding. Nolan said it was the "best cake he ever had," and that, my friends is saying something. Nolan Kyle has tried a lot of cakes. :)

So like so many things I do, on a whim I went and got a bottle of amaretto, some cake decorating stuff, and ...voila! Amaretto cake with buttercream frosting. Pictures and all that how to stuff follow.

***I have no idea why my pictures won't resize to something less insane. It's late, so I'm calling it a day. :)
I'm excited no one else cares

The nominations are in!

Y'all head on over to vote in the dgficexchange. I was pretty pleased with the variety of nominations; this is the first year I've ever gotten around to nominating anything, so that makes me all proud.

Also, I always feel very guilty about voting for myself. Is that weird? I never know what to do.

And I never take notes on the stories, so now I have to go back and read what's in each nomination category so I can vote properly. Or I could just go and click ticky boxes at random...

Kidding... mostly.
