  2. first of all, that lemon cake is TO.DIE.FOR. i literally pass out whenever i taste the frosting. all of my good intentions to avoid cakes until wedding day - GONE, OUT THE DOOR, thanks to that crack...i mean cake. second of all, love the cutsels bag. the designer of that pattern is one incredibly talented person!!

  6. Yall are just the cutest! I’m so happy to hear the Help was good! I read the book and loved it, but am always a little weary about seeing the movies!
    Just reading your posts about mr. jb make me even more excited to have my boyfriend HOME. In the same PLACE as me… like hanging out. Eating dinner. Watching movies. Oh my gosh the little things. I miss them!

    I will email you later- I want to know when baseball season ends for yall, and where you will be in the off season! Taaaaaaa taaa

  33. Lol. I just dedicated an entire post to the fact that I'm an ugly crier. . . it made me laugh to see what you wrote about your husband saying you looked like you were eating sour grapes. =)I can totally relate! ... And heidi braids are awesome. Sadly, I fail any time I try to braid my hair. =/

  34. I have to watch "Midnight in Paris" and "The Help" as soon as possible! It's not yet out here so I'll maybe read it before..

    I'm so glad the weather is finally hot in Switzerland!
