I just love the above picture of my husband so much that I have it framed and on our bookshelf. It's just so cute of him. Plus, it reminds me of how he tied a cape around his neck, climbed up onto the step ladder, and flew off like Superman.
Well...he might not have flown like Superman that day, but he sure is our Superman now. That little grin on his face above is the same grin he still gives his daughters and me every day! He's a thoughtful old guy, and I sure am grateful to be navigating this life with him by my side.
Happy Birthday, old guy!! I sure do love you!
Oh, and shhhh, but you want to see what I just frosted for the old guy?
Now, promise you won't tell!!!
A homemade carrot cake with cream cheese frosting! Yummm. No, I have no idea why the frosting appears green in the picture. (And please don't make me go back and re-edit the picture. This old gal is tired.) I promise you, in person it is a creamy color of deliciousness!! I have to tell you--this is about the very best carrot cake you will ever taste. Now, please understand I am not bragging on myself one bit! I just stumbled onto the BEST carrot cake recipe about a year ago. Oh my WORD. Eating this cake is like eating something healthy and fresh. And I mean that in the best possible way. It is moist, with just the right amount of cinnamon and brown sugar. I mean, how can you go wrong with those ingredients?? Add all the rest of the yummies, and you've got yersef the best-ever carrot cake! (You know...the voices really are better in person.)
(Oh, and I do not know why I feel the need to tell you this... But, the only reason the cake isn't on my pretty glass cake stand is because it has to be transported to my husband's work meeting tomorrow. The glass stand--or the cake--just wouldn't make the bumpy ride. And, oh, what a tragedy.)
I've been debating whether or not I should post the delithouth carrot cake rethipe... If you're interested, check back tomorrow! Maybe I will post it!!
Oh and want to know one more secret?
Now, you REALLY CANNOT tell this one!!!
Look where I am hiding the leftover cream cheese frosting!!!
Oh, don't judge. You all know that sometimes a girl needs a middle of the afternoon frosted graham cracker! This is just a teensy, tiny emergency frosting stash. Don't act like you all don't have one!
P.S. Are you sick and tired of hearing about my Celebrate Fall GIVEAWAY yet??? Well, then ENTER IT and be done with it!!! Have you actually looked at the cutie patootie wire basket? You might be sorry if you no enter. No enter, no winnie.
