An ode to my friend.

Although you have only been in my life for five years, it feels like you have always been there. I'll miss you, but I know that your life in New York will be an amazing adventure.

These are a few of the reasons I adore you (I couldn't possibly list them all.... Just not enough time)

1- You order your food in Japanese when we go out for sushi.
2- The laugh you get when you really think something is funny...
3- Your ability to make friends wherever you go.
4- Best white chop stick user I have ever seen ;)
5- You are SO generous.
6- You have THE most amazing singing voice.
7- Best roommate EVER!
8- You can just tell when I am not OK.
9- Because you like random
10- Because tennis is your middle name... I think.
11- You are so strong and stoic in the face of adversity.
12- You always try to make others feel welcome.
13- You have an extensive disco-skating wardrobe, and you aren't afraid to flaunt it.
14- Just because you are you.
I miss you already. Although our lives have already taken different paths, just know that I am immensely grateful for your friendship. I would not be the person I am today with out you. You have always been there when I needed to talk, or a shoulder to cry on.

I made my cake... And ate it too.

As promised, here are pictures of the cake I made for my 28th birthday. I guess there is some rule out there floating around which states "a person can not make their own cake". Well I have never been one to concern myself much with rules, besides I wanted to make it!
I did a chocolate cake with butter cream frosting, and my very first try at fondant.
I have to say that I love fondant! It's like playing with play doh... Only fondant tastes better.
This is my version of a "hobby cake". Complete with mountain bike, racing bib and finish line, stethoscope, band aid, lacrosse stick, fish, and fishing pond. The fishing pole has real fishing line on it :)

I had a ton of fun making it and I can't wait for a reason to make the next one.
