Hi all! I have some fun and exciting news to share. Awhile back, the ladies over at CAKE let me know that some of their cakes were going to be published in a book...the author contacted me for my information and then a lot of time went by with no word, and I honestly forgot about it! But just this week we learned that the book was just published!
The cake that I had at my baby shower for Drew is featured in the book! I worked with Kimberly on the design of the cake and I loved the way it turned out! Click here to see the post from my baby shower.
CAKE are fabulous...weddings, birthday, celebrations...and they even have a bakery now! I always get the banana truffle cake, but they are all amazing!

|Here we are at the rehearsal dinner on Saturday night. It was at Rue de Jean in downtown Charleston. This was the first night we got to see everyone.|
|My girls Amy and Stacey at the rehearsal dinner. Seven kids and two sets of twins between us. Sexy mamas!|
|We also walked through a huge market area that is similar to our farmer's markets out here. This was my favorite booth filled full of beautiful butterflies. I picked up one for Drew's room.|
|On Sunday, Jason and I decided to do a historical carriage ride tour of downtown. It was really informative and the weather was perfect. We saw a lot of churches and I just loved this one's unique gate with the red door!|
|I would just die if I lived in a pink house with black shutters! I tried to talk Jason into buying a second home here in the south! When we heard that there is a similar house on the market for $24 million, he just rolled his eyes at me.|
|Here is the waterfront. The homes across the street were just amazing.|
|Ahh, the black shutters again. Look at the design around the door and the ivy growing on the steps. So charming!|
|I am just being silly here. We stopped in this hat store and tried on a bunch of huge hats. This one was $200! Yowza.|
|Here was my buddy Max. Isn't he handsome?|
|Me and Jason on the carriage ride. So relaxed!|
|We went to a Gospel Brunch and here was my first ever taste of grits. Can't say I'm a huge fan, but maybe if you added about two cups of cheese on there!|
|Congratulations Clay & Britt! Such a beautiful ceremony. I loved the bridesmaids dresses...every shade of teal and blue. Flowers were simple white bouquets of peonies, roses, and dahlias. So pretty!|
|The wedding cake! Loved the rosettes!|
|The reception was at an old Rice Mill. It was such a beautiful wedding and reception site! I must tell you they had a mac 'n cheese bar for dinner. I did mine up with truffle oi and bacon! "When in Rome"!!!|
|Oh how I loved my Anthropologie dress. It was the most comfortable dress I've ever worn AND it had pockets (which I discovered half way through the evening)!|
|Stacey and Amy both had ridiculously awesome necklaces on. I was feeling a little left out! Smile.|
|Charleston sunset at the reception.|
|Here are all the boys, aka "The Tappers". Yes, they named themselves that in High School. There have seven weddings out of this group....3 more to go!|
|Stacey and I being silly at the reception. I think I ate about 100 Charleston Chews that they had laying around everywhere.|
