    Gray frosting cake. Wowzers. You did such a great job w/ that cake! The whole set up (with the ‘trash’) is amazing. I’d ask who the figurines are but I don’t want you to make fun of me so I won’t. I love how Jake used the china bowls for the condiments 🙂

    Short Round looks so happy ! Congrats on the new addition to the family.

    I’m ashamed to admit that I read 50 Shades and hated it. Loathed it. I must be the only one. This I know. I’m glad that Jake took you to see the movie though – what a good bf 🙂

      Hi Faye – I… I’m just going to pretend you know who the characters are and just leave it at that. Thanks for the kind words about the cake!

      I read romance novels, I’m much better at admitting this now. Haha. 50 Shades, it’s not the best one out there. It’s kinda like the “gateway” novel to reading better romance novels, in my opinion. I still kinda liked it though because I thought it was fun. It’s like watching old guilty pleasure movies that you don’t want to admit that you like to your friends. But I will admit it. I have no more shame, I guess. 🙂

    Happy V-Day to you two! Sounds like you had a really fun weekend. And, you are braver than I am to see Fifty Shades in the theater.

      Thanks, Leanne! Happy belated v-day back! We did have a very nice weekend. Haha, I guess it is brave, but we went to a nice uncrowded theater as well. 🙂

  3. That is such a RAD cake!!!!! I love it! Very creative indeed. It’s cool that you got the Luke figurine for the cake! The card is cute too. It’s a good thing Leia and Han ended up together, heh heh, otherwise, just ewwww.

    Your dogs! 🙂 Awwwwww <3

    As for Fifty Shades, I'll be watching it next weekend with a friend. At a theatre far far away from me, haha. I read the fanfic first (when it was a Twilight fan fic known as "Master of the Universe") then the books came out in '12. I may not agree with the uh types of activities Christian Grey is into, but hey, I just want to see the eyecandy.

      Hi CC – Hahah… it is good Leia and Han ended up together and that Luke and Leia you know, figured out that bro/sis thing. Otherwise, yuck, haha.

      Eye candy is always good! Haha, we saw 50 Shades at the theater near you, though hardly anyone was there (and those who were there were all sitting waaaaaay in the back, hmmmmm!).
