I made a cake!

Lately I have been a little obsessed with Ace of Cakes and the Food Challenge with all the crazy cakes. They just look so fun. My sister is getting married at the end of the summer, so I offered to make her cake. Granted I have never actually made a wedding cake, but I figure that since I had watched all these shows and how to video's on youtube that it would be fun. This weekend I decided to do a practice cake, I think it turned out ok for my first try. It is obviously not a wedding cake, but I needed to try working with fondant. It's really not that hard. I took the cake to young woman's on sunday to share, it went along with my lesson on Temple Marriage. I wasn't a huge fan of the pound cake recipe that I tried though so if any one has a good chocolate pound cake recipe let me know!!

I also wanted to post a picture of the father's day cards that I made this year, I thought they were really cute. I have more pictures of cards on facebook.

I dream all the time....every night in fact. I usually remember them in the morning and they are typically strange and crazy. I am not a fan of dreaming, i never feel like I get enough sleep. I heard that if you can remember your dream in the morning you didn't get enough sleep.

I am known to talk in my sleep and also beat up Chad on occasion (only a little), but last night my dream was intense. The details are all a little fuzzy now, but I was at the beach and laying in the water. Someone came along, i dont know who it was, but they grabbed my hand and pulled me out and held me under the water. I couldn't get out. The next thing I knew I was startled awake because I couldn't breathe. I woke up trying to breathe. It was insane. I dont know if i couldn't breathe because of my dream or if my dream formed around the fact that i couldn't breathe.
(You know how that happens sometimes, how your alarm turns into some sort of car alarm or something in your dream and then you realize it is your clock)

Anyway, I had a hard time getting back to sleep after that and i am quite tired now, it was a long night.

Hopefully no one else has such real dreams!!
