This is my little sister, Jane, at her high school graduation two months ago. Look at all those cords and awards! (That rhymes.) Okay, you're right; I'm in the picture, too. Ignore me for now.
But, uh oh, this is my little sister, Jane, in the ER last Saturday. I know, right!?
Yes, she sewed her finger. In the sewing machine. On accident of course. And look how she wound up. (No pun intended.) (Actually, that could be two puns; figure it out.)
Jane, being on Codeine and still feeling the effects of the Michael Jackson meds Demerol that they gave her before they extracted the needle (!), did not feel like herself, to say the least. So she and I decided that making this rainbow cake from Omnomicon would cheer her up!
Here are our adventures in colorful-cake-making, photo-documented for your viewing pleasure.
Yum, and it definitely did taste good! I want to try it again sometime soon. Maybe shades of pink on the inside?
The past week has been CRAZY BUSY with wedding stuff. Andrew and I went apartment hunting, got our engagement pictures taken, AND crossed an item off my bucket list: creating a wedding registry at Target. Oh, and NO BIG DEAL—today I also said yes to a dress! But back to the topic at hand.
Pretty much every time we’ve ever gone to Target, I’ve turned to Andrew at least once and said swooningly, “Wouldn’t it be fun to create a wedding registry!?” (To which he was always like, “Yes, Kate.”) But until this past Saturday, I never actually got to do it.
It should be known, of course, that even though I’d never created a registry before, I did have excessive experience in walking through Target, admiring items, envisioning how they'd look in the imaginary future home I might one day share with my imaginary future husband.
This is what Target does so well—because it is run by veritable marketing geniuses (notice I didn’t say PR geniuses): It gives you a glimpse of the life you could have. You could be the type of hostess who has gold bakeware exclusively for the fall season or the type of homemaker who puts her feet up on a crocheted pouf while a robot vacuum cleans her floors. This is all available to you at Target. And on Saturday, it was all available to me.
