The Good Life

This weekend was awesome. We had such a blast. First off, it was my honey Leo's birthday--the big 31! I made him a carrot cake with a homemade cream cheese frosting. Want the recipe? Here it is:

For cake I used Duncan Hines carrot cake from a box (sooo moist and yummy!)


1 pack cream cheese, softened

1 stick of butter, softened

1 lb of powdered sugar

1 tsp (give or take) of vanilla

Combine cream cheese and butter with mixer. When smooth add powdered sugar and finally the vanilla. If you are like me and LOVE cream cheese frosting, simply double the recipe--you'll have plenty for leftover munching throughout the day ;)

We also had some really good friends come down from Alabama. They spent Saturday and Sunday here and let me tell ya, we had a blast! We did some shopping, ate some delicious ice cream at Marble Slab (the best ice cream!!) and also went to the National Park. We saw the alligators again which their 5 year old boy was ecstatic about! He was sooo excited and we were happy he had a nice time. I also did some shopping for some new clothes for myself. I am finally beginning to get my wardrobe up a little since having Bella. I have been losing weight so I am very excited about this! I have lost over 35 lbs since having her 6 months ago. Just a few more pounds to go ;)

I hope your week is fun and exciting! We are going to go to the park this week, it's in the 80's here. Have a blessed evening and enjoy the pics above. Isabella was in a new shorts outfit--a size 12 month, can you believe it?! She is growing up way too quick *tear*.
