Weddings, Weather & Work

So much going on these days, lucky for me I don't have kids in school to add to the madness! 

I started working last month, just part time, but I love it! My office is on the beach, but I don't have a view of the ocean 😞.  Oh well!! 

The wedding is getting really close as well, only 35 more days and my baby girl will be getting married!!!!  We are getting to some of the little tasks that need to be taken care of, like the cake topper and ties for the men.  I can't believe it is coming together so fast.

We are also dealing with a lot of weather here in the Sunshine state.  Crazy rain storms and lightning have been driving my dogs nuts and scaring me a bit too. I enjoy the rain more than the heat, but the thunder always gets to me.

I have been working on this cross stitch for the bride over the last week. Once I get it finished I can add their names and wedding date, it will be so cute.

I sure hope that I can start a better blogging routine now but if nothing else, I am going to blog Fete in just over a week. It shoud help to get the mojo flowing again as well as a game plan.

Sunday Fun

I am still learning where all of the fun places to shop are in my new area, and I am happy I found a Charming Charlie's not too far away. While there, I found these great napkins and I think today would be a great day to pull them out.

Once I can get around a little easier, I have a bunch of places I want to go check out. Be back with more soon!

Cherry Lemon Trifle

For Father's Day this year, my youngest daughter wanted to make a special dessert for her daddy!  He loves the fruit filling cakes with cool whip and frosting, so we decided to change it up a bit.

We started with the white cake mix, but instead of putting the filling in the cake, we left it for the layers. After it was baked and cooled, we cut it into small squares and started layering.

The frosting was one can of cherry frosting folded into a container of thawed whipped topping. It makes for a very light topping! 

Needless to say, Dad loved his special dessert and I loved that we were able to use my gorgeous trifle dish!
