Let Them Eat Cake!

My sister, Shana, is getting married in Chapel Hill in July. Her fiance lives in Virginia Beach and couldn't make it down this weekend for the cake deciding and tasting so guess who got to go with her?

ME!!!

She had gotten recommendations from several people to use Cinda and she was excellent. We sampled 4 different cakes and then got to take all the leftover's home which means I'll be eating cake for a few days. I should probably take it into work so people can help me (Marty is NOT a sweets eater). Anyways, we tried yellow cake with vanilla frosting, carrot cake, red velvet, and chocolate with peanut butter filling. They were all delicious and I really think cake tasting should be a yearly or monthly thing. It was neat to talk about the design, see pictures of elaborate cakes and then finish with the tastings.

Day 2 after bike crash hurts more than day 1 did. My knee is still swollen and oozy and I have a nice bruise developing on my hip (which definitely hurts the most). I also discovered another big bruise on my other leg that most have hit some part of my bike when I fell. I skipped swimming this morning because I was pretty stiff and sore and then just decided to take the entire day off. I hope I'm not being too wimpy about this. I plan on riding the trainer tomorrow and probably will lift at work.

The cross bike is a no-go. It turns out we don't get the discount we thought we could at IOS because Marty doesn't really work too many hours a week. For something like a bike there are stricter policies with discounts (understandable).

And later this week it is going to be FREEZING here! Right now on Friday the high is only supposed to be 32! Helloooo winter.

That would be a fantastic job: cake sampler! They all sound so yummy.

No - absolutely not - you're NOT being wimpy! Day 2, 3, and even 4 are MUCH worse after a bike crash. I was so stiff after mine, it was pretty awful. Hang in there, and enjoy the trainer!
