2011 Recap

Everybody else is doing it! So in the spirit of conformity, I'm going to make like a high school girl and copy my peers. Here is my recap of some of what got accomplished in 2011.

I made a rainbow cake for my sister's 14th birthday.



I shared the guest room makeover.




For Father's Day I made homemade oreos.


We hosted a Fourth of July celebration at our house.


I made herb stuffed bell peppers.


After finding my grandmother's recipe in a cookbook, I tried my hand at baking a red velvet cake.


Pinterest inspired me to make mozzarella sticks.


We threw a party for Halloween.


A command central was created in the pantry/laundry room.



I painted the half bath downstairs.


Eric built me a desk.


My friend Sharon and I baked an ombre cake for our friend Kelly's birthday.



It was fun looking back on what I've done this year! Here's to more fun in 2012. =)
