First, I want to take a second to recognize Leslie Sisti of A Blonde Ambition blog. She passed away this week from complications with her heart, leaving her husband, and two daughters under two years old. I only knew her from blogging (one of the first blogs I read) and comments, but I was impacted by this awful news, and simply cannot imagine how hard this is for her family. Kelly has been posting about Leslie, and also linked to a GoFundMe page for Leslie’s family. I think she is planning to post more fundraisers and ways to help her family as well.
ONE: Heading to the coast tomorrow! I apologize in advance for too many beach pictures on Instagram.
TWO: Todd’s birthday is during our vacation, and I’m doing some recipe planning to celebrate him. This mint chocolate ice cream cake looks perfect!
THREE: I worked on another article for FTD’s blog Fresh. This time it was all about Fall birthday parties! Fall – cannot believe it is so close! The post will be live soon, and I will post more about it then, but here is a sneak peek of one of the party ideas.
FOUR: I feel totally unprepared for Davis to go to preschool. It is only two mornings per week, but still. I need to find him a book bag and my mom is looking for a lunch box. Ideally, I’d like to use a bento box style for his lunch. Pottery Barn has some options, and Sarah told me that Zulily had some as well.
FIVE: I made some red velvet Butterfinger cake pops for an event at church tonight. I am not normally a red velvet fan, but I’ve got to say these were tempting. Good thing they weren’t gluten free – could’ve been dangerous for me!
I cannot believe it is almost August! I hope you’re all able to cherish one of the last weekends of Summer! Thank you for stopping by.
