Year Old Cake & Donors Choose

I have been overwhelmed!  That's my excuse for not blogging in a bit.  As I posted before, I recently celebrated my one year wedding anniversary.  I know, one year, you might think it's not a huge deal... but it's fun!  We have forever left to go!  We ate the top layer of our wedding cake as promised, and it was..... actually pretty good!!  Shocker!  I've heard both sides... it tastes horrible and it tastes great!  Our was good!  The thought of eating cake that was a year old kind of grossed me out, but the cake itself was good.  My husband ate a whole piece.  It was kind of sad just throwing the rest out, I saved it for a few more days in our fridge until I could get myself to throw it in the trash. :(  Here are some pics.

On another note... I've been meaning to share that my very first project on Donors Choose was funded!!!  Don't know what Donors Choose is?  You're missing out!!! Learn about it here.  I think I first heard about it from a colleague.  I created my project this summer, when I was bored to death.  I asked for a bunch of chapter books since I knew I was moving up to second grade this year.  I got the official email a few weeks ago and our books are starting to ship!  So exciting!!  I'll be sure to share about them when they arrive!



  1. Congrats to you on both! :) Love DC!

  2. Congrats on your first anniversary as a married couple! My hubby and I at the cake too. It was strange for us too. A fun tradition though!


  3. Congrats on both your anniversary and your project being funded!!! I wish I could use DonorsChoice but I don't qualify:( O'well I'm happy for everyone that is lucky to get it.
