nonny list

My mom & I are both intense list makers. We're psychotic planners and we ALWAYS feel better when there is an agenda. So, in honor of her short three day visit - here is my list of things I want to accomplish.

- Make a cake together for Glory's birthday party. I even made some fondant to use for decorating! I would like if it looked like this, it will probably at best look like this.
sidenote: anyone worked with fondant before? I'd love your tips!
- Sit & drink coffee together.
- Take her to Mars Hill.
- Watch her play play-doh with Elias. Which, you know, he calls "cookies".
- Let her enjoy how intensely excited the kids are in the morning.
- Maybe get a manicure together. puh-lease Nick?
- Watch her get a kiss from Glory.
- Sit with her, Kal, Kelly, & Marilee and let her see some of the
amazing women God has given me here.
- Have her help me start planning our place in Boston, maybe help me look online for one!
- Let her laugh at Tres' enormous growth, meaning my enormous growth, since January.
- Take her to brunch at Hector's in Kirkland & scout to see if we can see
Jason, the Bachelor, then throw stuff at him.
- Have someone else to laugh with at how passionate my
quiet husband becomes when watching March Madness. It's a sight.

Ok, that should do! Hurry up Nonny! We can't wait!

Can you make reservations at Portage?

And...anyone who went 16 for 16 on the first day of March Madness SHOULD be excited.

Tomorrow will be a different story.I might go 0-16.

If I go 16 for 16 tomorrow...we are moving to Connecticut and I am going to work for ESPN.

love your plans and would love to see a belly shot soon!
I have worked with fondant. My advice... read the box, I found it easy to work with. Thoroughly knead your colors in... of course. I'm sure you'll find that it's a piece of cake... ohh, that was painfully cheesy. Can't wait to see how it turns out! :)

hey girl :) when i made wedding cakes in college, i always iced the cake with buttercream as if that were the final layer, and then put the fondant on... that way, everyone's happy... those who like fondant, and those who prefer buttercream:) have fun and i can't wait to see photos!

Maybe part 2 of the fondant tutorial will come out before she gets there!

Those PW tutorials are great. I love the pictures... it seems to make it easier.
