This weekend I discovered the beauty of buttercream frosting. You can guess from the name at least two of the ingredients, but if we're all being honest with ourselves, it should be called buttersugar(splashofcream) frosting. Either way it was glorious and a lifesaver at the last minute and made me feel like a real baker as I decorated box mix white cake with it.
This weekend was full of birthday celebrations for Mike and Jenna, long periods of time spent outside on the porch, stuffed in our kitchen and our living room with so many of the people we love, playing driveway tennis with the jukebox playing loud in the background, and saying phrases that all started with "Happy!" It's back to the rainy weather, but this weekend was a welcome reprieve from the wind and the rain and the gray. But who can complain when your lovey takes a sick day the day after his official birthday and it's raining outside while you work from home to the scent of fresh banana bread, strawberries, pineapple, and coffee. I'm already brainstorming what to bring to DC with me tomorrow, and I can't believe it came so soon! It's already Wednesday? Where did the week go? (Wherever it is, good riddance!)
