Let Them Eat Cake

Monday was Jonathan’s dad’s birthday and somehow I got stuck making the cake.  I’m definitely not complaining, but Jonathan asked me to “help” and then I ended up doing the whole thing.  Silly boy.

Here’s the finished product: a yellow cake with butter cream frosting.  I’m not much of a cake person but this was pretty tasty, if I do say so myself!  I’m not exactly the Cake Boss, but I thought it turned out pretty cute :)

Speaking of cakes, look what I found at Kohl’s today.  All of the Babycakes products!  Remember when I discovered this wonderful invention in my Pinterest post?  Well, here it is in the flesh!  They look so cool…I want them all.

Happy birthday, Pops!

This morning Jonathan and I went to South Bend so he could get some comics.  On the way there he started to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone! FINALLY.  I wish I could have gotten a picture…it was so momentous.

On our way home it started pouring.  The clouds looked so cool, so of course I had to snap some pictures.  I don’t suggest trying to take pictures and drive at the same time {unless of course you have someone to hold the wheel for you, like I did!}.  Seriously though, it’s probably not a great idea.

Also, happy 50th birthday to my daddy! I don’t see him very often, but tonight we went to dinner to celebrate the big 5-0.

Here’s the sweet deep-fryer Jonathan and I gave him…because who doesn’t like fried food?!

We had some yummy sausage and black olive pizza at Roma’s.  My favorite part of the outing was getting Domo stickers out of the sticker machine :)

Tonight, Jonathan and I watched Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds.  It’s about an American truck driver who is buried alive in a coffin by Iraqi terrorists.  I definitely do not recommend it to anyone…it was a little too much for me to handle.  Have you seen it?  If so, what did you think?
