Good News!

Brian got a job! He will be working for Home Land Security in the ICE division (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). I am so excited for him and the adventures that lay ahead for him. He reports to the academy, which we are 98% sure is in Georgia, on February 17th.... YES THAT IS SOON! That's not all! Since he will be leaving in a matter of weeks, and will be gone for a while, and won't know how long until we'll be able to take a vacation, we will be leaving this THURSDAY for a very fun and exciting vacation! Now I know any sane person would take advantage of the tropical weather in areas such as Hawaii or Gulf of Mexico, especially this week with all the rain and cold weather, but we, the insane, have decided to go to a colder and wetter place... Washington DC! Now you might be thinking one of two things A) Wow you guys are nuts! or B) Wow you are going to freeze! BUT we are so excited! We have been to many tropical places and decided to do something a little different. We just booked our trip today and leave in 4 days! I can't believe how fast somethings happen. I am just so excited and can't wait to see all the wonderful things Washington DC has to offer. We have never been that far east before and just couldn't be more excited!

Another Cake

About a year and a half ago I helped throw my sister in law, Claudia, a baby shower. It turned out sooo great! Here is the cake my mom and I put together for her.
And this is another cake I made for her out of Diapers.... too cute!

Brian's Birthday Cake

This post is long over do... Brian's birthday was back in November and I really wanted to make him a specialty cake. I have taken every cake decorating course that has been offered by Wilton and haven't made a whole lot of cakes... but here it is.... I chose to make a sushi cake because Brian is a HUGE sushi fan. Don't worry it's all sugar and no fish. :-) PS. That chocolate egg looking thing is NOT an egg... it's soy sauce... not one of my proudest cake decor pieces.
