An award, a game, and a cake!

Being on vacation has made it a little difficult for me to focus on a blog post, but I'm now happily posting with an award from Jenn over at Jeans Friday, a game from Island Girl, and a lovely cake from another blog friend. Yep, it's going to be a long post...

So, onto my award from Jeans Friday (Thank you so much! What a sweet award!!)...


"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight more bloggers who must choose eight more bloggers and include this cleverly written text in the body of their award."

And onto the blogs that I find exceedingly charming...

Piper Jacqueline at Steak and Cakes


Pink Flamingo at Displaced Southern Prep





[I know I only have 7 listed...but there are a couple blogs I would have loved to give this to, but they already have the award!!]

Congratulations!

Now! Onto the game from Island Girl (Thank's for including me! Such a fun game)...

1. Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures. 2. Go to the 6th Folder and then pick the 6th Picture. 3. Post it on your bloggy and tell the story that goes with the picture. 4. Tag 5 other glorious peoples to do the same thing and leave a comment on their bloggy tellin’ about it

Luckily since I like to keep my blog anonymous, this picture is the one that I found after I followed the directions!


Story behind this picture: 

This picture was taken at Tweet, a lovely breakfast place in Andersonville, after a long and late night out with some girlfriends. This waffle was a much needed meal and it was DELISH! I miss these old times with the girls, it's hard growing up and becoming busy and not being able to see them as often as I'd like. I sure hope that when we graduate we'll all stay or live near Chicago. 

I'd like to tag anyone who wants to play!!! Leave a comment and the game is all yours. Can't wait to hear about YOUR picture :)


LAST BUT NOT LEAST!

Look at this cake from Sweet Things! She may be chilly up there in Toronto but she can sure make a lovely beachy cake!



I love looking at her cakes, she's so talented!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!
