It really is the small things that are making my week amazingly happy!
We’re off to a good start, as far as Mondays go. I’m sitting here turning on and off 132 battery operated candles to make sure that they work. It is a little time-consuming, but I know how amazing they’re going to look in the mason jars so I’ll gladly spend 15-20 minutes doing this.
I was really nervous that they wouldn’t arrive in time. I mean, talk about cutting it close to the deadline, we’re only 5 days away! Note to self: Next time you’re planning a wedding, just make the executive decision and buy the candles a couple of months before. Yes, I’ve wanted to buy them several months ago but I was waiting to hear feedback from others before I did anything about it. In the end, I never did get that feedback that I was looking for!
I finished baking all the cake for the wedding cake. I still need to make 50 cupcakes, but that will be a piece of cake (no pun intended). I have four layers of vanilla bean and four layers of triple chocolate chip wrapped up in my freezer. Then my friend came over and spent three hours giving me a crash course on “how to create a wedding cake”. It’s going to be a lot more difficult than I imagined. It’s those dang cake shows! They make everything look so easy! 🙂 No, I think we’ll be fine, I just need to make sure to start earlier on Friday than I thought.
