Boojiboo Flirty Apron GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!!

Boojiboo had got to make THE CUTEST aprons on Etsy. I am so excited about this giveaway, but may just buy one anyway! The only problems are 1. I don't want to get something so cute messy in the kitchen, and 2. there are so many cute designs, which one is my favorite?

My Wedding Photo

iHeartFaces is having a contest this week with pictures from a wedding. One of the rules is you have to have taken the photo yourself, and since this is the only picture I took from my own wedding, I decided to submit it!

I LOVE this picture! I took this of the two of us as we were waiting in the bride's room after the reception and right before the get-away. Our guests were lighting the sparklers for our grand exit (you can see some of those fantastic pictures on my post last year!). This was the first time we were alone, Mr. and Mrs. Lopez. My sister had accidentally left her camera in the bride's room, so I snagged it and snapped this last minute picture of our perfect day.

I Heart Baking!

No apology for the cheesy title, after all, I am a Johnson girl through and through, and we love puns!

Now, I'm no Bakerella, but I love baking none the less. So, when I heard that Summer's Cakes was hosting a Summer Bake-Off, I was inspired to get in the kitchen and try something I've been holding on to for a few months. For Valentine's Day, one of my students gave me an adorable heart-shaped cake pan.

I went with Strawberry Cake for a couple of reasons. First of all, I've never eaten strawberry cake, since my mom doesn't like anything strawberry-flavored. Secondly, my husband LOVES strawberry-flavored things. But, most of all, because of the shape, I HAD to bake a pink cake!

Doesn't it look so cute! I have such high hopes at this point in the game!

It came out of the pan nicely. I love the quilted top and squiggly sides! So fun!

Here is the final frosted and sprinkled product. It was kind of a let down for me, as I had great visions for this cake! Any suggestions on how I could "cuten up" the cake after it is baked would be greatly appreciated!

Almost that time again!

Our two year anniversary is just a few weeks away! I can't believe it! I've been very sentimental today, looking through our guest books, photo albums, and videos. Our videographer at Eurostar Productions put together this 2 minute video montage of our special day! Thank you, Dan. It is beautiful! Here is one of my favorite pictures from our perfect day!
