Todd the pastry chef

Todd has been quite the prolific baker yesterday and today. He's on the "Celebration Committee" at work, which means when people have birthdays and work anniversaries, he has to decorate their office with banners, streamers, candies, and balloons. Also, for the past two months, he's been in charge of the monthly birthday celebrations. In June he bought a huge amount of different varieties of fresh fruits, and ice cream, and toppings. It took him a good two hours just to chop up all the fruits! Then this month, he decided to home-bake some goods. So last night he made 2 loaves of fresh homemade banana bread. This morning he made fresh homemade apple cinnamon cake, and homemade mocha pudding. He brought it all to work.. well, he did leave a little at home for me. :-) I SO admire him for his enthusiasm and effort!

Earlier this week I took a half day off to hang out with my good friend Meera. She's 5 months pregnant and in need of a serious back massage. So we hit Spa Urban Retreat again. She got a massage and I got a facial. I really enjoyed my facial, even though it didn't have any long-lasting effects. It felt good at the time though. Then Meera came over to our house and we hung out.

On Wednesday we brought dinner over to our friends Barbara and Mike's house. Barbara has just finished 6 months of treatments for breast cancer and will be having surgery soon. I've been praying for her, but hadn't had a chance to visit her until now. We brought BBQ chicken sandwiches, salad, fresh corn, and Haggen Das ice cream bars over. We had a great time sharing and eating. Their kids have grown so big too!

I realized that I have a few more layouts that I haven't posted here, so here they are.

This one to celebrate our 10th anniversary three years ago. Papers by Katie Pertiet. Photo/mat die-cut by Rhonna Farrer. Flower brushes to create floral border by Rhonna Farrer as well.

This one from our 2003 trip to Kauai. Light orange, green, and purple papers by Gina Cabrera. Hibiscus paper from Oscraps collab kit "Bikinis & Boardshorts". Layout template by Pattie Knox. Font is Times New Roman.

This one from May, the day before Mother's Day when we went to Ross Hills to visit my mom's grave. I asked Todd to take some candid shots of me just being there and being "in the moment", not posing. I had forgotten about these photos until yesterday. Background papers by Kim Hill. Green swirl photo mat and green flower stamp by Gina Cabrera. Vintage stacked frames by Katie Pertiet. Fonts are Angelina and Times New Roman.

Blue background paper by Heather Ann Melzer. Photo cluster by Nancy Comelab. Everything else from "Express Yourself" kit by Ronna Penner.
