Cake, flowers, and monograms.

A few random musings are what I have for you today… first off: my birthday is on Thursday and I have one thing on my mind. Funfetti Cake. Somehow my grocery store was sold out of the mix (didn’t they know it was my birthday?) so I’ve been looking up a few homemade recipes (here and here).

This weekend we also tackled some wedding planning tasks — I got to work pulling together inspiration images for our florist (who happens to be one of my fabulous bridesmaids!). I’m so excited to see all of these ideas come together, I’m thinking beautiful giant peonies, some pretty little billy buttons, and pops of bright pink blooms.

And it will come as surprise to no one, that as we worked on our wedding registry this weekend there were plenty of monogrammed goods added to the list. I’m certain I would have registered for a monogrammed vacuum, had that been an option.

    I’m so glad you shared all the details – I just love weddings! It sounded blissful and I’m craving lobster bisque (my all-time favorite food) all of a sudden! ;)My favorite memory you shared was of your Dad’s reaction to your sister’s portrait… oh, and the few minutes you and she had together listening to Travis Cottrell, right before she walked down the aisle.It must be so special to have a sister and it was super sweet of you to share all this with us.
