Where do I start???

As the title says, where do I start? - There is so much to talk about! We'll start with last Wednesday - we finished Cake Decorating classes. The pictures below show our final cakes. The first one is mine, and the second one is MJ's. We had lots of fun going to the class and we were pretty proud of ourselves when we made these cakes. We'll go back for class 2 in September because we are leaving on vacation and can't do class 2 right now.

Speaking of vacation - we leave in 3 days (really 2 because today is almost over)! We can't wait!!!! I am so excited to go and just have a good time. The dogs are very excited as well because they get to spend 3 weeks at their Nana and Grampa's house. They love to go there and run around on the farm. My poor parents though - they end up with 4 dogs when they are there. We are so fortunate to have them to watch the dogs though! After we do Disney, we are headed to MJ's mom's house in Minnesota, then we are driving to Colorado to visit MJ's brother and his wife. Then back to Minnesota to see MJ's other brother and his wife and kids. It will be lots of fun and it is always great to spend time with family!

Ok, so we were vendors at a craft fair on Saturday. It was a total bust!! We sold 5 cards and 2 card boxes for a grand total of $10 - now, the table fee was $15 and we had to give a donation which equalled another $15, so we actually ended up MINUS $20. We had great "neighbors" though and it was a beautiful day, so we sat in the sun and chit chatted!

Here is a picture of our booth:

Ok, so I have to tell you about some more special people - you see there was this one set up with some really special items. I had to sneak a picture of them to show how really pretty they were (not)! Thank God for a good zoom lens!! So, without further adieu - here they are!

The best part is that when we looked over we noticed one on the ground and we were able to see the trade secret for how they were made - look closely at the following picture:

Yep, you guessed right - it was a "recycled" dish soap bottle - wrapped in tinsel garland - made to be an angel! If I had actually made some money at the craft fair, you might have had to hold me back from buying up the whole lot of them!

Today we went shopping and went to my parents for dinner. The dogs spent the afternoon there, so they are nice and tired tonight!!! I'll update again before we leave!

Good night - and sweet dreams - I am going to be dreaming about the missed opportunity for buying those pretty dish soap tinsel wrapped angels!
