Little This Little That

I just had an epiphany at Target & I decided I needed one!
I am happy to report I bought my first BRITA :)


I got the "Slim" as I have to fight for space with Gabe's two-gallons of milk taking up all the room in the fridge.  Seattle tap water is amaaaazing, but our freezer doesn't make ice and we have the stupid cubed ice we freeze and have to pop out when we need it.  Worst thing about living in a townhouse, is the ICE!!  So, this has been so convenient to have chilled water on demand.

Now the good with the bad ....
We are on a cake-eating-train-that-must-slow-down 
from the rate we are going!!!


For Valentines Day, I surprised hubby with a red velvet cake.  YUMMERS.

Then, he demanded I make another one (as we devoured the first one), 
so I happily whipped up the classic yellow cake with chocolate icing.  

I grew up with mom making this cake for us as kids, yes, it brings back pure joy.  It's the ONE treat I never caught flack for eating as a kid, in fact it was encouraged by mom -- even for breakfast!  This was our little secret before school and dad might be finding out for the first time as he reads this post :) !!!

Which leads to me carrying on the tradition and I "get" to eat it for breakfast in the Smith household.  Why break a tradition now?!?!

THEN, oh yes, Gabe asked that I make the confetti cake.
Hey now, they were on sale, so I stocked up!

Now, I am caked out, thank goodness.  But, I think it's because the vanilla frosting and confetti cake is just so-so for me.  I choose my calories wisely, and I will stick to the red velvet and yellow cake next time around!  


Thank goodness for crossfit and the fact that I'm active, haha!!!!

Oh gosh I love me some Funfetti cake! It's a good thing my husband doesn't like sweets because I would be baking all the time if he did!

The cookies made out of Funfetti mix are the BEST! I used to devour them weekly before I went gluten free. My hubby & his friends still request them OFTEN though! Talk about trying of my will power!

Frances said...

we just bought a Brita recently too, best purchase ever!!

Beth said...

We like our Brita pitcher - of course, I don't always remember to fill it, so I'm still often stuck with tap water. Although our freezer in our townhouse makes ice on its own, so, we're lucky that way.

And the truth? I don't like cake! I know, I'm weird. But give me something salty any time.

Mari said...
