After continuous iPhone scrolling, I’ve managed to find the last two years worth of ugly birthday cakes that I told you about in this post. The ones Seth made are on the left, and mine are on the right. As you can tell, we have two distinct cake decorating styles: He likes to pile as much candy onto cakes as possible, and apparently I like to have random stuff sticking out of them.
My favorite part of our accidental tradition? The anticipation. We end up presenting them to each other in such over the top ways that we’re already cracking up before the candles are even lit. Basically we justify acting like children by telling ourselves that when we have kids we’ll already have one birthday tradition covered.
You know the saying that start outs with “I love you like a chubby kid loves…”? Well, there has got to be a joke in there somewhere over my love for these ruffled ice cream cones by Icing Designs. Could they really be any more perfect? If only I could always be more in love with fabric ice cream cones than the real deal..

A little of this, a little of that. Basically long weekends as I know them. I hope you had a fantastic Memorial Day! We grilled out in between shopping, errands, and a little bit of worked mixed in.

I love pretty cakes. Ironically though, hubby and I have an ugly birthday cake tradition. It all started accidentally a few years ago, and we’ve kept it up ever since. One failed attempt led to another, and the next thing you know, our cakes were so hilariously awful that they were far more memorable than any others. With that being said, if I could always come up with something as simple and pretty as these glitter heart cake toppers by The Paper Pony, then I may have been able to avoid some minor catastrophes… just some.

I’m totally one of those people that ends up picking out some variation of the same outfit and the same key necessities at any given chance. Give me a few weeks (and a few new pieces of clothing) and the whole process starts all over again. Am I the only one that does this? I blame it on ease. I mean, why postpone the boardwalk by picking out an outfit when you have your favorites right in front of you? So, here are my current 10 must have summer pieces so far..
1 // Make a striping statement with an Asos floppy hat
2 // Be peachy keen and irresistably kissable, Benefit Posie Tint
3 // Dap a little glimmer onto your eyes after the beach with Benefit cream shadows
4 // Add a little color with bright sandals that you could walk in all day
5 // Protect and brighten with Hello Flawless, and they’ll still be none the wiser
6 // Super mod sunglasses from ModCloth
7 // The forever useful Zara plaited shopper
8 // Smell like summer, Marc Jacobs Lola perfume
9 // Gap hot pink khakis, the most comfortable pants ever
10 // Forever 21 polka dot tee, adds a punch to any outfit
If this color dipped coffee set DIY from Rebecca at A Daily Something hasn’t knocked your socks off yet, then just check out some of her other projects here. Crazy amounts of talent over there! I found out about her blog through Twitter (which, admittedly, I don’t use very often), nonetheless I’m glad I did! I have to say, I’m always excited to come across people who aren’t afraid to express their love of God, and honor Him with what they do.
