How many have you tried? If you'd like, feel free to follow the same guidelines:
1) Copy this list into your site, including the instructions!
2) Bold all of the sweets you've eaten--or make them a different type color.
3) Cross out any of them that you'd never ever eat. (3A) I made everything I have ever made pink)
4) Consider anything that is not bold or crossed out your "To Do" List.
Also, on cakespy, they have links to almost all the sweets, so you can look up anything you don't know about; I have not had/made macarons like the ones listed, just the kind of macaroons you make with coconut and a can of sweetened condensed milk. But, I found that I have had kulfi (at our local Indian restaurant) and Concha (at one of the Guadalupe celebrations)

After, there was a big party at the Anderson's new house on the lake. It was a beautiful day, and we had a great time. Maggie and Baby Paul were able to come; that made the day even more special.

Carly, Karen and Kim
Sharon and Paula
Kim receiving her Survivor Medal
Will ran the race in 29 minutes. Pretty good for a wrestler, I think.
After the race, we all went to Bob Evans for breakfast, and then Sharon, Dave, Griffin, Will and I went to Huber's Orchard for the afternoon.
Griff and Sharon on the Mountain SlideIt was fun, but really crowded, and our car overheated on the way home. Thanks to Dave, and a kind man whose driveway we had pulled in to, all was well. (Clay was in Ohio, visiting his mom and getting ready to run the Towpath Marathon Sunday. He did well for the first half, but then started feeling icky, and walked the final 11 miles. Then, on the way home Monday, he had a blow out around Columbus, OH, and almost crashed. Very scary. I was never so glad to see him home.)
This Saturday is a beautiful day, as well, but not so much fun -- I have to play the funeral for a dear man and friend of our dad's.
Then, we have a giant catering job this evening -- wedding for 250 -- that we have been preparing all week for. Tomorrow, Alex is being baptized -- Clay is already working on baking the cake. What a good guy. We also celebrate Carly's 11th birthday tomorrow evening.
I'll try to post about all the festivities, if I can stay awake long enough tomorrow evening!

And do this: Join the Army of Women. I did today.
And if you do something -- anything -- about/for breast cancer this month, leave a comment here, and I'll put your name in the hat to win a this basket full of pink things, including a embroidered pillow case and a knit band ball dishcloth. (That's my first pillowcase ever --pink ribbons for breast cancer and bluebirds for my mom. I am now officially addicted to embroidery!)
Today is also the feast day of St. Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, whose mother, like mine, died of breast cancer. Join me in praying that no more moms have to die of breast cancer, no more daughters have to be frightened of breast cancer and little pink ribbons become dusty old antiques.
