I'm alive!

This has been the craziest work week I've had in the past year and a half.

I'm pretty sure I also spent the least amount of time online that I have in a year and half.

I haven't read a single blog or written a single post. And I miss it!

My vacation started at 5pm yesterday and we have lots of fun things planned, but I'm also planning on having some down time so I can get some posts written. (And so I can recharge my batteries!) I have a couple recipes to share and a couple book reviews. I'm also hoping to be able to share some of the adventures we have this week, and some pictures of my beautiful home province.

But for now, my apologies for my lack of commenting and hopefully I'll get caught up soon. :-)

Weekend Highlights

I had all kinds of blogging I wanted to get done this weekend, but that totally didn't happen. And not even because there was a lot of fun stuff going on. Friday night I was in bed early and Saturday night we cleaned the house and I baked a cake for my mother-in-law's birthday.

My weekend did have a few highlights though...

- I decided to sponsor my first blog! For the next month you can see my button over at ember grey. and I'm pretty excited about it. My blog is two months old today, so I thought it was time. :-)

- I was nominated for a Sunshine Award by Anne @ Love the Here and Now. I was super excited when I got her email. Now I have to figure out what 11 bloggers I'm going to nominate, answer Anne's questions and come up with my own.

- The birthday cake I made for my mother-in-law turned out, and everyone loved it. I was a little nervous because the last time I attempted to make a layer cake it was disastrous. (Ugliest cake ever.) This one was tasty and didn't look too bad. This weekend I'll be baking a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting for J's birthday. Haven't decided if I'm going to try the whole "layer" thing again or not.

Lemon cake, blueberry filling, and blueberry whipped cream frosting.

Is it sad that 2/3 of the highlights of my weekend are blog related?

Have a great Monday!
