A few weeks ago, my mother asked me to make the cakes for my cousin’s baby shower that took place yesterday. I said that I would love to, and we discussed at length the kind of cake that she wanted. She finally decided that she wanted a diaper cake. The first thing that popped into my mind is that she wanted a cake shaped like a diaper, and I was furiously trying to figure out how in the world I was going to shape a cake like a diaper.
So, what does a diaper cake look like?
Pretty cute if you ask me.
When mom and dad came to pick it up, they brought my birthday present. I love presents. Presents are like…the greatest thing!!! It doesn’t even have to be nice. You could purchase me a bag of nuts and I would be totally thrilled. I am easy, I know. Please don’t tell anyone, or from now on, all my gifts will be bags of nuts, and I am not that easy! I much prefer bags of chocolate thankyouverymuch!
2 weeks ago, I got a box from a friend in Florida filled with what she said was her junk. It was yarn. I was soooooo excited. Thrilled. Estatic. Pleased beyond all pleasing. Happy and dancing for joy!
Then about a week later, I got a box from Alaska. Inside was this.
A lovely crocheted wrap. I let my daughter wrap up in it once over the weekend. Why? oh why? do I do things like that? Knowing that since she has gotten her grubby little hands on it once, mom surely won’t mind letting me use it for the rest of the winter….sigh. I do mind, and I have been wearing it as much as possible ever since to let her know that she needs to have a grubby little hands off feeling about my wrap!
This is what I got for my birthday from my parents.
Isn’t it lovely? I am so blessed. Truly blessed.
I can never ever take it off. If I do, some sweet girl will swoop in~~I think she has a radar of some sort~~try it on, and ask me if she can wear it. I will say “no way, Hosé, mine, mine, mine!” Childish, yes, but ever so effective!
Did you ever borrow jewelry from your mom?
Tomorrow I will tell you all about cupcakes and Italian Buttercream Icing.
