This post is brought to you by the number two

What were you doing a year ago today?

A year ago, we took Bump out for a family outing because the weather was nice and cooperative. Doesn't she look cute with her little red horned hat?
That double chin of mine was almost gone. Those sixty pounds were really hard to lose but that is so last year to talk about. I'm a toddler mom now, I talk about language development and when to potty train.

What were you doing two years ago today?

Two years ago, we feasted on this delicious lemon mango wedding cake with grape vines made of chocolate, fresh berries and a white chocolate ruffle painted with real gold.
We also ate other wonderful things but the cake, oh that cake. I remember Chef Don calling me the day before and he was panicking. The real grapes tasted sour and he had promised me a cake draped in grapes and berries. He said he could make vines with chocolate and make berries look like grapes. I said it sounded divine. He said I was the most laid-back bride he had ever met.

It's true, I was completely chilled because everything was perfect. This cake was for the day that I was marrying the man I love. I love cake and I love SB, what more could a woman want?

How could I not love a man who will wear the same hairstyle as our daughter to encourage her to stop ripping out the elastics?
This keyboard can never convey the emotions I feel for him. I love you so much SB that I tear up just typing those words.

Happy Anniversary SB, I love you THIS much.

Oh, sweet...
Lemme ask - is that Maclean house?

MotherBumper said...

Good eye Kittenpie! Yes, it's MacLean house and we had the entire house to ourselves even though it's usually reserved for larger parties. We had only around 20 people and the staff treated us like royalty. It really was nauseatingly perfect (with on exception but nothing related to service, just a guest).

Happy Anniversary! And oh, yum, that mouth is watering.

What a sweet BumpDaddy to try wearing the same hairstyle as Bump. You chose well.

Yes, how could you not love a man willing to sport a whale spurt 'do. It is a good look. That is one dedicated daddy.
Happy anniversary!

I hope you had a wonderfully romantic celebration! Bumper is adorable. Your husband gets many, many points for sporting the pink hair accessory.
