We definitely have a busy month ahead , we kicked it off with my birthday on the 8th and more importantly the 8th is also the 20th anniversary of the day my husband and I met , we have been together since. If your wondering I was 11, alright I was 19 years old. Just a baby...but of course I didn't know it .
I was very kindly given a beautiful birthday cake , sorry for the terrible photo iPhone . It is quite a task getting me a cake , as my husband and daughter have serious nut allergies we can't just go and buy a cake and I'm sick of baking my own cakes ( bday cakes are important to me , they just are ) Todd ordered this cake from The Cupcake Shoppe in Toronto , they are one of the truly peanut/nut free cake shops around that I trust and Todd works in Toronto so it worked out well for me, didn't it. It was a 4 layer marble cake with butter creme , and it was so scrumptious and moist and not sickly sweet.
I am really back to considering and seriously considering the real thing. I know the pros and cons and I have finally found many who love them , they are work but what good things aren't work???? seriously, kids tons of work , pets , homes all great things that require work. I will go with honed and we will seal it often. Since we will have an island with butcher block top we will make sure to keep high damage items to the island.
I do however need to put some more time into our fridge but I didn't know the exact dimensions until just recently. Happily we have found the perfect fridge that matches our stove , it has all we are looking for and its pretty too , we love those handles.
Please forgive the quality of this post , I am trying out my new laptop and its not looking so good right now , and I don't know why. I will work on it .
