Backlog: Johnny's "Cars" birthday party

I know, I know, I haven't been here. Sorry about that. I've been attempting to sleep train Hank for naps and nighttime using the Baby Whisperer method for the last eight days which means I spend a majority of each day and night bent over Hank's crib patting and shushing him to get him to learn to fall asleep independently. It's hell.

Anyway. So Johnny turned two last week and we held his birthday party the week before that. Friends and family were invited to celebrate with us and we all had a delightful time... even if I burned my first garlic bread in the oven and Johnny refused to open presents. The cake was pretty kick-ace if I may say so myself. :)

Yes, I did design and make the cake myself.

Overall, fun was had by all... even Johnny who spent most of the party outside by the pool where there weren't any guests. Thanks for coming, all!


  1. Michael LOVES the cake. Did you make it?

  2. WHAT?!!! you made that cake?!!! omg. i am going to commission you for bday cakes. for cash of course. (on my knees begging!)

  3. Nice pictures from the party, and Johnny is looking so adorable in the photos. That cake is indeed very nice and creative and it’s awesome that you made it yourself. My sister has also asked me to prepare a cake for her daughter’s birthday party which will be this weekend at one of the famous venues in Chicago.
