Memorial Day

We had a wonderful Memorial day. Matt had to work, but that's normal when you work retail.

Here's my pathetic spinach plant. I don't know what happened! It's just not growing. I planted it probably over a month ago. . .and there's about 3 little plants. I planted a whole row!! I'm so glad I planted some at my house too (this is at mom and dad's)

And my out of control peas! they're so big, they're falling over. I have to go stake them up today. They're probably about 2 feet high, no joke. I'll put Katryn next to them for comparison. But they yet to have any blossoms, so we'll see if I'll get any peas off of them, or if it'll just be a good learning experience for me. :)

I've been working on my cake skills as well. This was the cake I made for memorial day. It's german chocolate with strawberry filling. I know, it's a watermelon, not a strawberry, but hey, it's completely dairy free which means that Katryn can eat it! It took a long time, but it's good practice for when i get around to starting my own business. :)

This is Katryn's favorite activity these days. She likes to get a different perspective of the world sometimes. And then we grab her legs and summersalt her over. She loves that!

I haven't been blogging on here much, but I have been posting rather regularly on Recipes Of A Cheapskate, so go check out all the food I've been making! We're still working on our plans to move to Georgia, but we're open to other options as well. Like Washington is another plan. . .or Ogden. . .or we'll stay here. . .we really don't know WHAT we're doing, we're just going along.

My garden is growing great! I think the peas are going to blossom soon, and my strawberries are starting to turn pink. It's wonderful. The spinach I planted over at my parent's house kind of bit the dust I think. . .but I planted a little planter box here, and it's growing great. My herbs are also starting to look good! It is pretty satisfying to see the fruits of my labor. :)
