5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

Hi Friends and Happy Father’s Day to all of our daddies and daddies-to-be! We have had a wonderful day showering Patrick with love, and now that we are home and he is taking a little evening Father’s Day nap, I decided to sneak on here and write a little post for all of you about the ADVENTUROUS day that we have had. So here it goes…

5 Things: Our Father’s Day… The Good, The Bad, and The Funny:

1. So, here is how our morning began…. Well, I should really give y’all a little backstory first. I was FORCED BEYOND MY WILL to take a HUGE portion of cake home from the baby shower yesterday. And not just ANY section of cake, it was more like the entire side which had an ENORMOUS amount of LUSCIOUS FROSTING. Which I usually do not complain about free cake, but this cake was DANGEROUS y’all!

It was a fabulous, homemade, incredibly moist, creamy, rich, buttery, melt in your mouth, almond flavored cake…. And it tasted exactly like Wedding Cake. And here’s the problem, Wedding Cake is my one weakness! It is my favorite and I lose all of my senses and become completely clutched in its grasp while in its presence. Well, on my way home yesterday evening, I tried my very best to get rid of it all. I dropped some off to my grandparents, and then brought the rest to the boys. I left it on the counter hoping they would devour every last morsel.

But when I woke up this morning and headed into the kitchen, there it was… just STARING at me! One glorious piece of cake left. It was as if Jesus had saved it just for me! I tried to resist at first, but as I walked past to retrieve the coffee creamer from the fridge, I got one heavenly sniff and immediately fell into its evil clutches. I had no other choice but to gobble it up at once. Plus, you know that I am an adult, and it IS technically okay for me to eat cake for breakfast… And that is EXACTLY what I did.

Now This Is A Food Pyramid We Can Follow!

Now This Is A Food Pyramid We Can Follow! THANK GOODNESS the Blue Bell Ice Cream factory started their production back today, or our food pyramid would have been RUINED! HAHA!

Now, we are well aware that this is a TEXAS food pyramid…BUT they are from the SOUTH TOO! So, we think it is pretty safe to say that it is fairly close to what our Louisiana food pyramid would look like. Except, we would add KING CAKE, GUMBO, BOUDIN, POBOYS, SNOWBALLS, and CRAWFISH!!! (Can we get an AMEN!?!?) Although, we do appreciate the fact that they have both MEXICAN FOOD and TACOS in 2 different categories! (I may be Italian, but I LOVE me some Mexican food!)
