Happy 1st Anniversary

I can't believe a year has past (well a year and 1 day) but where did it go, I just can't figure it out.

A lot has happened in the last 365 days, some which were good, and some which were bad, but all in all it's been a fabulous year, we've learned, we've grown and are already ahead of where we started.

We had a great anniversary weekend, we decided we just wanted a weekend to relax and not worry about anything so we wanted to stay local and do a few things in the area, we had a couple of great meals and a couple of fun days.

It started out with a night were we spent our wedding night, close to home but it didn't matter, all we care was the hotel had an indoor pool and a jacuzzi. Sunday afternoon we decided to go to the Yale Art Museum and wander around the campus, since it was 65 degrees out, it was a great day to wander around. For dinner we headed out to Texas Roadhouse for a giant side of beef and salad (you have to balance the meal somehow).

Monday we started with lunch at our favorite Indian Restaurant then off to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, we knew the weather was going to be crappy so inside things were going to be a plus today. It was great we saw some dinosaurs other animals and rocks and gems.

I'm so happy we've got the first year down, since they say it's the hardest one to handle, now I know the next 99 are going to be fabulous!!!

After we cut it, and ate a piece (I can't say it was terrible, but it wasn't real good, the frosting held up, but the cake dried out.

Cake Pops.

I found the recipe for these lovely little things a while back on Bakerella and I knew I had to make them.

There are so many versions of Cake Pops and Bites the combinations are endless. I decided to make a little St. Patty's Day love, and who doesn't like GREEN cake!!

Here's the picture tutorial if you wanted to see, I hope you enjoy.....

I used white cake mix and added green food color.

All Baked.

How sad, I had to destroy my pretty cake.

Add the frosting.

Make the little balls.

Now the finished product my cake pops and cake bites.

A great Sundae.

We spent the day today with our favorite little girl. We took Miss Jolie out to Toy's R Us (She had a gift card for $2) and really wanted to go use it. She made out really well with the $2.00, we ended up getting her a Pink Foam Soccer Ball, an Aqua Sand play set, and a bubble jump rope.

After Toy's R Us, we went down the road to everyones "favorite" restaurant. Friendly's. Doug even deceided he wanted to color with her. We had so much fun with her for the day, I love spending time with her. I can't belueve how big she's getting. Soon she'll be all grown up.
