As I went through this list, I expected to stumble upon some items that I regretted putting on my list, but at this point I’m still pretty happy with all 101 of my items. I’m feeling good about what I’ve gotten done so far, especially when I look at all I’ve planned to do this summer.
I’m excited to hear about the cake baking adventure. So far i have had no luck baking cakes from scratch. so much so that I may never try again! cake-in-a-box works for me.
I’m not sure I wanted to know that :) I’ve never baked a cake from scratch, but Brian’s and my father’s birthdays are within 3 days of each other and we’ll all be together, so it seems like as good a time to try a cake as any. There will certainly be a blog post.
