how to make a flag cake.

The Fourth of July is, next to Christmas, my favorite holiday of the year. I run in a local 5k, watch early morning hot air balloon launches, eat a pancake breakfast in the park, cheer for the annual patriotic parade, attend barbecues, swim, and top it all off with fireworks at dusk. The culmination of a perfect summer day. This flag cake from Martha Stewart is the perfect combination of decoration and dessert, perfect to take along to a holiday…

polkadot papoose.

Scarlett Sling.{via Polkadot Papoose}.$64. Slings are nothing new in the history of parenting, but it’s taken the West a bit to get into the swing of things. I wore a baby sling with both C and P and endured the sidelong glances {and o.k. a few *hippie* comments} from the uninitiated. I’m happy to see they’ve taken off in popularity because the benefits of using a sling are abundant. Never mind that getting some laundry done with a happily snoozing…

Thanks to Viktor for posting again today. I’m finding it hard to do anything in the throes of the lazy days of Summer. All I want to do is lie around {at the beach *sigh* I wish} reading Meg Cabot books. She’s written over 60 books, and I haven’t read every last one of them {yet} so lying around doing nothing but reading is proving to be a very possible feat. Queen of Babble Gets Hitched. $15.74. {via Amazon.com}. Her…
