The company patch displayed on Tim's cake
Tim takes command of Charlie Company at this end of this week, Friday the 13th. After his ceremony we are responsible for hosting a lunch for 100 people--whew! Lucky for me, part of the reception includes a cake. Other wives had suggested Walmart because they're super cheap, but if you know me you know that I LOVE my sweets; this was the perfect opportunity to explore some local bakery shops. I found one that has the ability to put photo images on the cake (it's standard to display the company patch) at a pretty competitive price. Before ordering the cake I asked to sample their options and was happy with the white and chocolate cupcakes they offered (Tim's flavor choice). We ordered a marble cake with strawberry filling and whipped cream frosting. Baby girl must love sweets just like her Mama because she was throwing a party in my belly once she tasted all that glorious sugar. Her kicks carried way more punch than usual. It's such an odd and thrilling feeling; I can't imagine what it's going to feel like as she gets bigger! I saved half of each cupcake for Tim to sample when we comes home from work, but I'm not sure pregnant me can ignore the temptation to finish them =).
