Happy Valentines Day!

I thought I would post this as it's so cute! It's from an advertisement but I don't care

Hubby did try and book us in for dinner tonight but the restaurant of choice was booked out. To be honest I prefer their alacarte menu than their set one, which is what they had tonight for Valentines Day. As it turns out, I'm glad we didn't end up going tonight, the weather has been freezing, and there were too many things to do tonight anyway. We did get each other beautiful cards which was nice though!

Well we now have a new natural internal water feature in our lounge room, complete with buckets and towels and a lovely drip.drip.drip. sound! When I get the chance I will put a picture up. We've had to reconfigure the lounge area because the water was dripping on the couch and ruining it, not to mention it would be a bit awkward trying to watch telly with water dripping on your head! It's been raining non stop the past few days, this weather is really driving me crazy with its 15 degree temperature differences!

Secondly, in preparation for tomorrow, I've been baking all day today, with no success unfortunately. For some reason the cake never eventuated... it never got to decorating stage. I simply cannot believe it, bloody packet cake mix and everything! It's never ever been a problem for me, ever! So I don't understand why now? First attempt, the cake was not high enough. Second attempt saw the cake erupting like a volcano in my oven so had to clean that out too, what an absolute mess! Third attempt it stuck to the cake tin. I was going to go again but thought someone must be trying to tell me something and gave up. And it was supposed to be a simple, yet elegant christening cake. I had most of the decorations ready to go once the cake was made and refridgerated overnight, very very simple design. But nup, there will be no white christening cake now. To say I'm extremely disappointed is an understatement :(

So now we go onto Plan B. I'm not going to say much at this stage I'm just hoping it works. It's not ideal but seeing that the ceremony is in aaproximately 9 hours time it's just going to have to do. I'll be sure to post some pictures anyway.

I must say though I'm very excited at the thought of seeing Alyssa in the christening gown. I just hope everything else goes according to plan despite the wet weather forecast... xo
