Weekend Recap

Again, with the busy weekends.


Started with a baby shower on Saturday, a bridal shower for Sunday brunch and ended with some celebratory Anniversary events last night.

To mark our one year, we enjoyed our 1st Anniversary Wine (aka our Guest Book... see details here).

(Waterford candlesticks gifted for our Anniversary by my Aunt)


and then we ate our wedding cake.  However, it didn't quite look the same as it did a year ago...

8.29.10

and after a little (not so gentle) restacking....

Surprisingly, it tasted awesome!  We both each ate our whole slice...  can't wait for more tonight ;)



Hope everyone had a great weekend!

  3. Haha! Wow... your cake tasted good? My husband and I couldn't even get to the second bite of ours on our first Anniversary. That junk was NASTY! It's good to hear that others have had better experiences with it. :)

  8. Thanks everyone!... I can't believe the cake wasn't terrible... I heard so many horror stories (and of course looking a hot mess didn't help)



    Happy 7th Anniversary to you and your Husband, J!

  10. Just found your blog this week (c/o Kim's Anthroholic) and have been checking back daily ever since - love it! Congrats on your anniversary - so glad you enjoyed it to the fullest!

    Totally off-topic, but would you mind my asking where you found the canisters on your kitchen counter (e.g. sugar, flour)? I've been trying to find those exact canisters for what seems like forever now, but to no avail. Thanks in advance!

  11. Thanks Chloe!


    Hi Dawn, and Thanks! The canisters are from Williams Sonoma, I've had them for over 2 years and they're still my favorite kitchen accessory :) http://www.shopstyle.com/action/loadRetailerProductPage?id=129513356

  12. Looks like you had a fun weekend! We ended up throwing out our cake on our first anniversary (is that bad luck??) because it looked so gross. I wasn't about to eat it, but I'm so glad yours still tasted yummy.
