Happy Saturday

A very happy Saturday to everyone!

The birthday celebration was fun; lots of love and laughs.

The hand-painted mugs were a hit. I don't envy his decision on which one to use first this morning! I used this tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. In their comment section there are mixed reactions to the success of this DIY project but I had no problems.

 The requested cake was fruit cocktail upside down cake. I had never made it before (and honestly didn't think I would like it) but it was good. I found my inspiration on Pinterest, there wasn't a lot to choose from but it was enough. It really is no different than pineapple upside down cake - I haven't made that before either. The birthday boy pronounced that it was just as good as mom used to make (yay?).
 Everyone enjoyed the party.
We ended the evening with a family game of basketball.

Make it a great weekend!


  1. It looks like Jeremy had a fabulous B-day! Love the mugs and totally don't envy him the decision which one to drink first from.
    Have a wonderful weekend, Harmony!
