Happy 9th Anniversary!

Today I celebrate my 9th anniversary with my best friend.  WHOOP WHOOP!


The last few weeks have been tough both emotionally and physically for both of us.  We sadly had to put our beautiful cat, Venus, down after 11 years and we miss her every day!  Then the most evil bronchitis flattened both Rob and I but I couldn’t just stop there, I took it a step further and broke a rib by coughing.  I like to go big!

But now that it’s finally over, I’m still pretty sore, but the coughing is on it’s way out.  So this week, Rob started back at soccer and he’s super excited, the girls both took tennis camps and have been having a blast, we found a new babysitter as our current one is in her final year at NC State and her schedule is crazy, I hit over 2000 fans on my FB page, and to top it off, it’s our anniversary!  Time to celebrate all the good!

Last year I used Marian’s from Sweetopia, which she took from Martha Stewart’s cookie cake.  You can see it here.

This year I took it a step further.  I’m giving my winner a signed copy of Julia Usher’s book Ultimate Cookies, so I had to buy myself my own copy.  In it she takes the cookie cake a step farther and then I took that and used the colours from our wedding cake and made this cookie.


Happy Anniversary Rob, our next year will be even better!


  1. Sorry I'm late to this post. Happy belated wedding anniversary to you and Rob. Keeping my fingers crossed that next year is a bit less uneventful for the two of you, at least as far as accidents and illnesses go ;)

  2. What a LOVELY cake! Happy Anniversary!!
