**This was originally a end of school year post, but I think it works just as well to kick of a new school year too**
I wasn’t planning on taking a break from blogging, but someone hit the fast forward button and here we are. The last two weeks have been a mad, frenzied dash to the end of the school year and we now have a freshman and senior living under our roof. Woot!! It’s been seven years (seriously?!) since my kiddos have attended the same school at the same time and I’m excited to have them together again, even if it’s only for a year.
But today, I can honestly say I’m not sure who is more thrilled to be done with classes… the kids or me.
Actually, I think it’s me.
In honor of the occasion, I felt like a little celebration was in order.
Since Tess is graduating middle school and Evan is looking forward to his last (most epic) year of high school, I pulled in their soon to be joint school colors.
Stamping & Paper Supplies:
I’ve had these letter stamps from Close to My Heart for years and they are still some of my favorites.
I also picked up these incredible cupcakes from The Sweetest Thing.
Portland has some outstanding bakeries, but this place is tops. I had no idea what the big obsession was about cupcakes until we stumbled upon it. So good!
This sampling includes:
Wedding Cake & Pineapple Up-Side-Down Cake
Salted Caramel & Mexican Mocha
And in honor of Father’s Day…
Chocolate Potato Chip & Kahlua Frosting with Chocolate Stout Cake
So yummy! Good thing I’ll be putting on a swimsuit next week.
Any big plans for the Summer of 2013? Vacations? Renovations? What do you have on deck? Even though, I’ve stepped away from my computer, we’ve still been working on several projects and there’s lots to share. Stay tuned!
