happy birthday, David... the best husband ever (seriously. Other people just think they have the best husband ever)!
David loves this picture of himself. That is why I chose it.
My husband's favorite cake is ice cream cake. I usually spend way too much purchasing one, but last year I made ice cream cupcakes and they were delicious. So this year?? We're turning those cupcakes into a cake. Let's see how it turned out...
I baked a chocolate cake in a springform pan.
scraps from leveling it off... tasty and dangerous.
melty ice cream (my husband would give his right arm for this)
melty ice cream spread on top of leveled cake.
now for the most frustrating cake frosting ever..
don't judge. it's hard to frost melty ice cream... even after I let it harden in the freezer over night.
he loves chocolate... it's gonna be a happy birthday!!
put clips, suction cups and flashlight in the small bag the bed sheet came in and then embroidered a felt piece, resized a pillowcase and turned it into a drawstring bag and put everything into the bag. Pretty cute! I made one for each girl. It was a hit!
Since I have married, we have spent quite a bit of time going through all of our stuff and deciding whether or not to keep it, chunk it, sell it, or give it away. Since both of my parents have already passed away, I am stuck with "sentimental" items such as...
Mother's Day 1987 plate... ha! what is that green, red and black rectangular thing on the lower right hand side? It looks like part of an animal cell (mitochondria or something?)
So what do I do with this stuff? I have a lot of it and we just don't have the storage or need for it. Do we keep it for sentimental value?? The answer to this question is no. We do not keep it. This is what cameras are for. We take a picture of it and chunk it!
