4th of July CAKE!

The fourth is almost here. What deserts are you making? Well I made a cake I saw off of pinterest! It was last minute, and very time consuming lol You can see the original cake recipe HERE @ 17andbaking.com


Get your ingredients together
You have three layers of cake.. Keep one layer white but by using food coloring, dye one layer blue, and one red. The three layers are suppose to be leveled but not this cake!
I simply used the directions on the box to make the cake. I do not ave the patience or time to make it from scratch --Maybe another time. lol  After baking, use a knife to slice the red and white layers horizontally in half. So you have a blue layer, two red layers, and two white layers. You'll need to set one white and one red layer aside, those will be the bottom two stripes of the flag.. Of course I didn't take a picture of most of this because they were falling apart and the frosting got messy! 
Stack one blue layer, one white layer, and one red layer on top of each other. Using a knife, cut a large circle through all three layers. 
 Placing the larger white layer on the bottom to start the cake building, frost. (Frosting between each layer will keep them together) Then place the larger red piece next, frost. Then place the white inner circle on top of the larger red layer, inside the ring of blue. Frost, and top with the red inner circle. 



Frost the entire cake and voila, it’s a flag cake!




mmmmmmmmmmm!
Not as perfect as I hoped, but who am I kidding! 
That wouldn't be me! 
Have a great Hump Day =P

Virginia Weather

I love the summer time, there's only one problem. Here in Virginia you can never predict the weather. One minute it's 105 degrees and the next its "lights out" there's a tornado warning.. It's happened a lot lately or maybe I'm just now paying attention to it being an adult.

This past week it was suppose to rain and thunderstorm the entire week...
Picture compliments of my friend Lindsey lol

Two days later I look at the weather and it looks like this! 

So we set up the pool and let the kids play 













I love my baby in his speedos lol

we also went to Busch Gardens a few times






Anyways the moral of this post, is as a friend of mine of facebook would say,
"if you want a job where you can lie all the time, just be a weather man!"

3. WRAP AGAIN - I want to try it again, since I do have two left. 
4. GET A BLOG WATERMARK FOR MY PICTURES - this is going to be hard, with my long name. haha
5. MAKE A LIGHT BOX - I've been procrastinating, but I will be posting about it next week Wednesday for oh how pinteresting! 

I know I'll have a good Monday, or week at that! I found out last week that Wednesday night was my last over night shift! It's kind of like a biter-sweet feeling though! I liked being able to do "what I wanted" at work in that time, It was kind of like "me time". But I really hated working all different shifts in one week. We will see how this goes. It's kind of pathetic I've been here for a year and I really have no say in what kind of hours I get. All I want is 7-3 most of the time....which is what everyone wants. LOL oh well!!! Have a great day
