    I wish I had seen this yesterday but I know what the gift is and it’s definitely not something you should feel obligated to get something in return for. It’s soooooorta for you both lol.

    Oh, and on the carrot cake thing, A's grandmother puts chocolate chips on top of the icing, and it's amazing.

    Haha he told me he checked with someone about it and I wondered if it was you / you and K! It was a good gift and definitely for both of us.

    I’ll dig out my vanilla cake and buttercream recipes when I get home. They’re simple but amazing.

    @Kimmers here is the original recipe from the book. Not sure if NYT changed anything.

    I just saw one difference - NYT uses pre-sifted measurements and the original uses post.

    Here’s my go to vanilla cake (just the cake, I haven’t tried their frosting).

    And here’s my frosting. I add 1 tablespoon meringue powder to it, but that’s just personal preference. I try to make the frosting with the highest fat content I can find (I heard once that makes a difference for buttercream), but I don’t know if that matters.

    I officially need to leave my hair color on for the additional 5 minutes for my resistant grays.

    How do you even have grays?? My husband started going gray at 16 so I get it but ... you are the picture of youth!

    I, too, started going gray at 16. :angry:

    They just decided to start being resistant at 29! Wahh!

    I mean I’m 19 years older than you (!!! I am old!) and I have sparse random grays that blend in with my highlights. Genetics are unfair.

    I call them glitter strands in the hope of changing my outlook since I’m too lazy to commit to coloring just yet. No such luck on a more positive outlook yet.

    At this point in my life I’ve earned them. :lol: But at least I’m not my cousins who were both totally salt and pepper grey by the time they were out of college.

    My library e-book was returned before I could finish it, and there’s a 2 week wait now.

    My poor kid only took a single 50 minute nap at daycare today so of course he fell asleep on the drive home. I am sitting in the car in the driveway and I have to pee SO bad.

    My stomach bug is back and B’s is just starting. If C gets sick in the next 24 hours we are doomed.

    Yes I Lysoled everything

    Oh no! That is awful especially on your birthday. My paralegal had to leave early today b/c her toddler has the stomach bug too.

    This last week has truly sucked. C shared his sinus infection with me and of course I got it in my chest too. We went on our monthly glamping trip and I felt awful and it rained a lot more than it was supposed to. My kitteh died the day we got back then Monday morning I went to the doctor because sinus and cough for nearly 2 weeks is horrible and I was seeing blood, which is generally not a good sign. Of course I have pneumonia so a forced 2 days off (glad I was home with Stella even though I am so sick). Now I’ve been on antibiotics for 3 days and am not getting better. I’ve just had enough now and would like to sleep for about a year.
