Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!

It’s Friday!

I am super excited about today, it’s the last Friday of the school year!

First what I wore yesterday:

Yesterday I was home catching up on some household tasks (ugh!), and also putting the finishing touches on a special cake. You see, the ROTC kids had asked if I would give my assistance in obtaining a cake for the senior send-off party today. (Thrown by the Juniors, whom have all had finals this week) My intention had been to simply order and purchase a Costco cake.

And then the guilt set in. How could I, a cake maker BUY a cake?! Not to mention, I simply didn’t want to run over there this week. So, I threw this together (and then realized how much BETTER it could have been if I had planned ahead. Oh bother, I have a serious “go big or go home” problem!!):

Needless to say it was a huge hit. I received a crazy voice-mail from about 30 screaming teenagers. Highlight of my day until that point! The best part? The inside of the cake was a dark blue. As in Air Force blue. Of course only one person beside me knew that until it was cut open. And to appeal to the age group? The filling was Oreo buttercream. Mmmmm!

I also lived up to my honorary “title” of “Major Sparkles” for delivery this morning:

Such a great group of kids, I’m excited for those graduating, and wish them all the best. (And realize in 3 years I will have a son graduating!! Eeks!!)

Hope your weekend is grand! I’m spending the next two weekends running kids around, oh my!

Until next time,

Jules

    • Thank you! I adore our ROTC kids, they are awesome. But I also enjoy that age group. They still have the sense of wonder about the world, and yet are grown up enough to communicate and have such unique individuality! But you understand all that!!! 🙂
