two June projects and an anniversary.

Hello out there, blogland!  I don't have very long to write but I just wanted to post this up really quick.

First, today is Rob's and my fifth anniversary together!  We've had a great relaxing day and even made a yummy dinner of chicken, mac & cheese, green beans, and dinner rolls.  I whipped up a special dessert yesterday for the occasion, which brings me to my first (well, second chronologically) June project.

Delicious cupcakes! I used my secret Sin Cake recipe to make cupcakes and then got a vanilla buttercream frosting recipe from a friend. I tried to color it a much deeper blue, but it didn't seem to want to get any bluer than this. Next time I'm going to try for a pink frosting and experiment with some vanilla cupcake recipes. I'm really going to miss all my kitchen equipment when I am in Orlando. :-(

My second June project is this Hermione Cable & Eyelet hat that I knitted earlier this month.  I love it!  The picture makes it look red, but it's really a wine-like color.  The ribbing turned out so-so, but the cables came out wonderfully.  I'm very proud of them.  Now I actually like knitting cables.  Go figure!  I'll definitely use this hat pattern again.

That's it for me today.  Take care!

Am I Reading the Right Blog?

Just wanted to make a quick note for my followers.  I know some of you probably found my profile from other WDW College Program blogs and so you decided to follow me, too.  Just wanted to give you a quick heads-up that you're in the wrong place. ;-)  This is my personal blog, and if you came here looking for my CP tales then you want to move along to this one.  I didn't want anyone confused in case that's the one you were looking for when you decided to follow my blog.

And if you want to stick around here for my personal ramblings and stuff, feel free!  I'm thrilled to have you following along. :-D  Have a great day!
