Holy crap...The wedding is in less than 3 weeks!
I'm getting into details like -- will the shawl match the tie?
Verdict: No -- bought a new tie.
The food tester extraordinaire (a.k.a Giz...a.k.a Mom) has settled on recipes for the cake and cupcakes.
The larger vases of flowers will be a combination somewhat this (albeit different colours entirely)
I still have a list of things to do that is stressing me out. Plus, R has won a battle - which means that we're going to New York for the weekend (the battle was that I didn't want to go and he did). Not exactly the best timing, if you ask me. But it'll be fun.
In the meantime - here are some muffins I made. Cooking and baking has been pretty minimal for me lately.
The most exciting part of the recipe was that I got to use my new toy. Thanks Giz!
