..the saga continues

 i would have been lost without
my awesome cousin and my sister who flew  in from 3000 miles away..they didn't know i had plans for them *grin*

we worked all evening

took a little break for this...

*photo...compliments of a very special 6 yr old

then it was time to get back to work
at around 10:30 we left the cake looking like this...
on saturday, mary took care of the final details.

 i took care of some other important business upstairs..

i really, really cannot thank my dear cousin enough, oh and my sister, mellon too!
they are awesome!

we had SO much fun, just hanging out, and creating.

its such a bummer that 3000 miles keep us apart...gonna have to fix that someday.

taste test

the mystery it a veggie??

Thanks to my good friend akaCINDERS we can all feel really smart today!!

click here to find out what this super delicious thingy is.

i honestly have NO IDEA

what this is!

help me out here!

my amazingly wonderful neighbor left this at our house the other night.
 it was in a bag that he left hanging on the door knob, along with some delicious looking cucumbers, yellow squash, and a few of his extremely juicy tomatoes. but i cannot, for the life of me figure out what this is.

i can't ask my neighbor.
 he runs a "stealth operation"
he's awesome.

he never delivers veggies when i can get to the door to thank him.
(or ask him what this funny looking veggie is)

i either find a bag of fresh produce hanging from our door knob,
or look out the kitchen window to see him driving off into the sunset!

i love that guy.
maybe i'll make him some zucchini muffins this morning .
when i deliver them, i'll have swallow my pride, and ask him what the mystery veggie is.
ya think?
