Simply A Farmer’s Wife

They Are Ordered.

So the cupcakes are ordered for Parker’s 2nd birthday.  Can you believe she’s going to be 2 already?  It seems like just yesterday she was born.   Sara Coleman the owner of The Cup Cake Shoppe Bakery is awesome!  If any of you live in the Raleigh community or are visiting go by there and check them out.  They were talked about in Everyday with Rachel Ray.  We cannot wait to see what Sara comes up with.  She is a talented woman and seems very excited that we are trusting her with such a special project.   I cannot wait to pick them up and taste them!  Yummy!

I booked our hotel last night for our trip to Charleston.  Why are hotels so expensive?  I mean you sleep and shower there.  Nothing else.  We booked one for $140 a night and in comparison to where we were going to originally stay that’s cheap people.  We wanted to stay in the Francis Marion Hotel but there was no availability and the cheapest rate was $284 a night.  Next year (as we plan to make this a yearly thing) we will stay there and I will book way in advance.  The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and I’m sad that we can’t stay there this year.  It’s in the heart of downtown Charleston which is breath taking. 

So, only two more days and we are leaving.  Ashley is getting more excited as the days pass.  It’s the 35th Anniversary of the Family Circle Cup so Rosie Casals, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, Conchita Martinez and Iva Majoli will all be present on Saturday.  I am beyond excited as these are some of the greatest women in tennis.  And Bud Collins will be there too. 

Well, it’s lunch time and I’m off to run some errands.  I am going to try and post more but honestly our lives are boring right now.  That’s a good thing too!
