To make up for the brownie incident...

We don't need to get in to the whole brownies-in-the-closet catastrophe, but I wanted to prove that I can bake!

New families have been moving into our ward for the past few weeks and we are sooo excited to have them - Austin and I really want to be more social but our pool is not very vast in Lincoln as far as the friends go (especially during the summer) so we are stoked to have some potential pals.  One of the families is expecting their first little girl a month before we are so we want to get to know them more (and because they seem cool, not just because we are both in baby mode).  We decided to make Tiffanie Cake for them, a delicious treat that our friend made for an activity a while ago.  It turned out beautifully, if I do say so myself.

Pink for baby girls!
Naturally, we had to taste-test it before we could bring over a hunk to the new crowd, so we had Austin's sister Makall over and tried it together.  Soooo yummy.  (Cool Whip on the outside, cream cheese frosting in between layers.) (Note: We are baking super-triple-delicious Plumb Jill chocolate chip cookie "Unsurpassables" for the other families with more children - easier to share and still so fantastic.)

Then we played Yahtzee and Austin killed us.

Also, I worked a serving shift tonight for the first time in a few weeks, and this guy gave me a $20 tip out of the blue.  I am not sure why, but I'll take it! It's been a good day : )

Follow-up on the 4 o' clock walk: I still love it, but look at my blister!!!

It has been getting steadily bigger and fuller (YUCK) and I don't really know how to handle it. Soooo I'm just not doing anything about it.
