Friday Show and Tell

Happy Friday!

Today I am making Owen’s birthday cake, which will be of The Little Blue Truck, his favorite book. Wish me luck, this design will be all my own! Hopefully I can turn this cute drawing into a cute cake!

My “babbles” this week:

I am really liking this song Riptide by Vance Joy, a musician from Australia that I heard for the first time this week. It’s a great song. (Also, I just signed up for rdio and I think I might like it better than Spotify. We shall see!)

I am finally watching Scandal, hoping to get caught up by the season 3 premiere on October 3. I  had to rant and rave a bit about Olivia and the POTUS after what I watched last night. It is all sort of making me cuckoo.

Okay, bring it on, friends! Share what you’ve got, anything at all!

  1. Good luck with the cake post a picture I’d love to see it! 🙂 Happy Birthday to Owen! Can’t believe it’s been a year

  2. Ooh! Can’t wait to see how the birthday cake turns out. We love that book and read it A LOT. I have been busy eating way too much of our favorite pumpkin bread as a means of distraction from the fact I’m going to have a baby any day now … http://easypeasykitchen.com/2013/09/20/mind-numbing-pumpkin-bread/

    We love this book at our house too. My 9 month old little guys sits through the whole thing and his almost 3 year old brother practically has it memorized and reads it along with me. I can’t wait to see the finished product. Maybe you’ll inspire me to do the same for my big boy’s birthday!

      I don’t even know how many times we’ve read this book, I think I have it memorized like your 3 year old! 🙂

    Awww…I remember that book. My now 5-year-old loved that book! I can’t wait to see your cake! I have to get inspired to make his 6-year birthday cake, which he has decided will be a mash-up of Lego ninjas & Star Wars.
