RunninDuff...not a cake decorator

Me and the hubby celebrated one year!!!!!!! YAYYYYYYYY! I tried to replicate our cake....since everyone ate it all at the wedding. What do you think????



Clearly it is a good thing that I'm practicing anesthesia vs. baking peoples wedding cakes. And maybe I shouldn't even be doing that since I clearly cannot pay attention to detail! Anywho...this is what has gone down in ONE YEAR! Timeline fashion
May 5, 2007: Graduate with my Biomedical Engineering Degree
May 27,2007 : Celebrate a beautiful wedding in Cleveland, Ohio
May 28, 2007: Pack up the vehicles and begin the journey to Savannah, GA! Oh wait...hubbys truck falls apart in WV mountains. Get truck towed to dealership...hand over our wedding money...and buy a new car
May 29,2007: Finally arrive in Savannah at 4 am....leave at 8am for honeymoon to Costa Rica
June 10, 2007: Start graduate school and hubby starts working at Zales Jewelers
July 27, 2007: Bentley (our puppy) arrives...
July 28, 2007: Bentley eats an earring and winds up in surgery
September 2008: Hubby starts selling Nissans
October 2008: Hubby gets a great job with the Enterprise management program
December 2008: Cruise to Grandy Cayman and Cozumel
Feb 2008: Run first half marathon
March 2008: Run first marathon
April 2008: Moved from a third floor condo to another third floor condo
May 2008: Sell the a mustang convertible
May 2008: Celebrate first anniversary has been quite an eventful year....wouldnt you say? Graduated college, moved across the country, bought two new cars, moved twice, bought a puppy, ran 2 half marathons, a full marathon, 5k, and 10k. Began training for triathlons, Started and completed a year of Hell (I mean graduate school)...when it was time to do taxes...hubby had 8 W2s!!!!!!!! EIGHT!!!!....I am now starting to see why I have been quite stressed..haha.

But lifes short....dream big! Go out there and get what you want...even if it means a little added chaos. I wouldn't enjoy life if I wasn't dizzy from being busy. Maybe I can make next year even more eventful with moving every 4 weeks for rotations! Buckle up....and look forward to the ride! This girl is coming!

Dang I love cake and your starfish designs topping look yummy.
I hope you can tone back the stress level and enjoy the ride(s) this year.
Happy Anniversary to you and hubby.

Marcy said...


LMAO, hey you TOTALLY get points for trying. I don't think any cake I would've made would make it past the oven :-X

You have such a great attitude. I agree if you want something give it all you got and go for it! Your year has been busy, but looks like it is filled with all good stuff.

Happy Anniversary! As for the cake, there were some minor differences, however the important part is the taste.

Laura said...

Whoa, I didn't know your husband was in the Enterprise Management Program! That's what my brother (the one I went to visit in Charleston) does.

Viv said...

Happy Anniversary!

Cheers to many more exciting years!

Debbie said...

i'm so proud of you!!!

I love you so much and you're my best friend!

Brian said...

At first I thought you made the top cake before scrolling down. Yes, stay out of the cake decorating business.

Quite a busy year. I don't even want to think of my life like that and compare. It would be way too boring.

Susan Oseen said...

Happy 1st anniversary!!

Your cake looks good compared to some of the kid's bday cakes I've attempted. I buy all my cakes now and have quit with the expirementations.

Hapy anniversary.
What a year, it only gets better. I hope you took advantage of the employee discount at Zales...
May the second year be as adventurous as the first.

Jess said...

That is quite a lot! Wow. And you're what 23? 24? When I was that age, I was drunk in a bar. Oh, and in grad school. But mostly drunk.

Congrats on your anniversary!

Is there a woman in the world who does not love jewelry? It is not always possible to afford expensive jewelry items but even those that are cheap can still look good. Zales Jewelers is a retailer of fine jewelry. I learned about it from It is a great site for you to learn about the company, its products, as well as customer feed backs.
