celebrating and baking xo

oh my. so it's been a while :)
here we are and it's starting to look like a lovely 4th of july in our part of the world. It's little r's first and even though he is still working his way through solids he's not gonna be having a pretty cupcake anytime soon ;) but look at this cheesy face! ha! oh he melts my heart. mr.handsome took this shot around little r's 6 month birthday. he's such a goofy kid. kinda like his daddy ;P

and look how fast the time goes! it's july!!! well, i decided enough was enough. time to say hello again :) so i took some pretty photos of some happy baking i got to do last night. patriotic and all xo. 

i used some pretty baking liners from martha stewart + a sugar sheet from Michaels ( I punched stars our of it, mmmm yum edible stars :)

they look so ordinary right?

and surprise! ha! red + white + blue layers of goodness! awesomeness. red velvet, white cake mix  ( i set aside half of the white mix and then added blue food coloring to the rest of the mix. ) perfect.  so happy with it. even better, i had 3 already heehee.

we're wishing you a lovely day of celebration and honor. Thank you if you or your loved one serves in our military. from the bottom of our hearts. thank you xo.

happy 4th of july!
