Weekend Party!

This weekend has been loads of fun!  My family threw a bbq in celebration of my graduation from college so all my closest friends and family came over.  Thankfully it was beautiful weather, we had just the right amount of food, and everyone got into the fun drinking games we played. It was a ball!

Saturday morning started off with an early morning spin class. I displayed my serious skills as a multitasker by making calls and snacking on my banana phone. Talent.


After spin I went to Sam’s Club to pick up the party cake.  No celebration is complete without classic grocery store cake–colored, artificially-flavored frosting slathered on top of marble cake. It’s tradition.  While I was waiting for the cake to be finished I noticed they now make DOUBLE cookie cake. What is the world coming to? I can barely make it through the store without knocking the whole M&M shelf into my cart, and now they’re making THIS?


Parents: if for some reason carrot cake and red velvet have gone extinct by the time January rolls around, I would like this as my birthday cake.  Or anytime you just want a celebration.

I had a real breakfast as soon as I got home.  2 giant mugs of coffee followed by another egg sandwich (sans jam because I knew I’d get more than enough sugar later with that cake)


The whole rest of the day was spent chopping veggies, prepping plates, setting up the backyard, and decorating.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend too!

Question: do you prefer chocolate desserts (cake, brownies) or fruity ones (pie, tarts)?
