Drumroll Please...

And the theme, for Gemma's Birthday Bonanza 2010 is.........


Cute right? And the full sized version of the teaser picture:

This cake is my inspiration. I want something similar to this, minus the fish and brown seaweed at the bottom. My color scheme is going to be that lighter blue color (what would you call that?), with light pink, dark pink, and pearl...and maybe some gold splashed in. I was going to bombard you with inspiration pictures today, but maybe instead I will post them as the plans really shape up!

In other news...I got an award!

The rules are simple, pass it on to 10 bloggers and also list 10 things that you don't know about me. Passing it on is always the hard part, so I will do that first. (Hard because I am awkward, not because there aren't a bajillion great bloggers!)

You ladies all deserve it! And check out these blogs!!!

Now, 10 things about me!

  • I HATE cilantro.

  • I have a small chest deformity called pectus excavatum. It's not that bad, but when I am topless, you can tell it's there.

  • I bought 3 car seats today, and I don't even own my own car.

  • I studied Public Relations and Sociology in college.

  • I want to go to grad school, but I am not sure what for.

  • When I was younger, before I went to bed, I used to day dream that I was Ross and Rachel's daughter.

  • I love finding blogs written by people with a completely different perspective than my own. It's kind of thrilling to see so much of something that is so unknown...

  • I feel like a new person when I get my eyebrows down.

  • I used to smoke cigarettes, but now I have replaced that addiction with soda.

  • I don't have a favorite color because I think they all serve a special purpose.
Alright, y'all, I am off to read blogs. Have a happy (what's left of) Monday!
