I love summer! Don*t you? Here*s what I*ve been up to:
...made my first layered cake, chocolate w/ chocolate & a dulce de leche filling
...banana pancakes (my fav!) with home-made brown sugar syrup
...baked red velvet cupcakes w/ cream cheese frosting. From scratch! (would have more pictures, but my camera is being a vampire and sucking the life out of my batteries)...thanks to bakerella for the inspiration. I love her! Check out her website, it*s full of delicious and dainty delights. Yum!
...been taking the boy to mommy & me swim classes. So fun! And of course plenty of trips to the pool to practice what we are learning. Also been frequenting the beach for picnics, seagull chasing, and sand castle building. My legs finally no longer require sunglasses to look at them. :)
...been going to different library bookstores and goodwill w/ my brother to find treasures to fill my bookshelves with.
...my Google Readers of course!
...magazines & catalogs for light reading and inspiration for the house I will one day have
...visiting new friends and catching up with old ones.
What have you been doing this summer?
