It has been a non-stop, jam-packed ten days and it's been just awesome! The weather's been holding out since I've been back home and everyone's been in a fantastic mood.
I think we're going swimming at a friend's house this afternoon because it's supposed to be almost 35! I had my tea outside this morning and it was already 15! I really do heart summer.
I walked the dogs for about an hour yesterday and this morning, it's been made official that it was too much for all of us. Pepi actually tried to lay down in some shade after about 40 minutes, but there was nothing we could do but keep going. I slept for 12 hours last night, after crashing at 8pm. Needless to say, I will be cutting that back. I'm excited for when 45 minutes seems like a breeze, but I guess I have to slow down the expectations. *eye roll*
I also made the best cake ever for a friend, as you can see above. I friggin' love making cakes! This one was a little easier than I thought it would be and it turned out really well without any major hiccups. The "gravy" really makes it look awesome, but the melted and tinted marshmallows were impossible to cut (yummy, but a real mess). I'm very excited for the next cake I'll be making in a few weeks, but haven't decided if it'll be pretty or funny. Frankly, I'm more of a funny cake gal, but I haven't thought up a great idea yet. I'm sure I'll be inspired soon though! Woot Woot! Cottage-party in 3 week-ends!! It will also be the first time the dogs come camping, so we'll see how that goes. I'm hoping Pepi wants to swim!
