One Year

ast Sunday was Isabelle's 1st birthday. I can't believe I have been at this mommy thing for a whole year now. It's going nothing like I planned, but I really can't complain. We weren't going to have a big party or anything, The plan was to go to my mom's and maybe have some cake and give her a few gifts. Like I said, things don't always go as planned. We ended up with a party anyway, and the guest list just kept growing. It's cuz my kid is so lovable! Everyone wanted to come. I decided I wanted to make her cake from scratch, making it as organic as possible. I used to bake a decorate cake when I was younger, but it's been awhile. I forgot how time consuming the whole process is!!. It turned out good though. I was rather proud of myself! Isabelle got a tin of gifts, of course. We put some of them aside so in a few months when she's bored with the one's she's got, we have backups. Over all it was a pretty fun day!

It's Hot

The heat has been HORRIBLE!!! With temperatures in the high nineties and high humidity pushing the heat index into the triple digits, being outside is just miserable, and that makes me miserable. As soon as you step outside, you are drenched in sweat, and you feel like you need a machete just to cut through the air. I can't wait for fall to get here! That is my favorite time of year. Carving pumpkins, and eating roasted seeds, the smell of the crisp air and the sound of the leaves crunching under your feet. Oh sweet release! You cannot arrive too soon!
