My sincerest apologies for being a bit absent the past few weeks or so. I've been working on some really great things that I can't wait to share with you all in the coming weeks/months. I'm starting to feel like free time in the summers is almost non-existent. Does anyone else feel that way!?
Anyway... to make it up to you I've got something GREAT to share with you today. And by great - I really mean: fantastic, wonderful and totally awesome!
Remember a few weeks ago when I shared this post? And then shared one of my favorite recipes to make using said baking supplies.
Well - because I love ya AND because I very much so appreciate all the support you have given me and this blog, I am going to be giving away two $15 gift certificates to one of my absolute favorite online baking supply stores - LAYER CAKE SHOP!
I absolutely love every. single. thing. in this little vintage inspired baking supply shop! If you are looking to jazz up your cookies or cupcakes - Layer Cake Shop definitely has all of the necessary supplies to get the job done (... and in the cutest way possible, might I add).
My absolute favorite thing to order are the grease proof cupcake liners that I mentioned in my Favorite Baking Supplies post. These are the first liners that I have ever used that hold their vibrant colors after baking and I highly recommend them.

I hope you all had a wonderful July 4th holiday. I really wish that I had taken some more time off of work because having a day off was definitely too good to be true.
Carl and I spent our day yesterday doing miscellaneous odds and ends around the house. We also made sure we got a few naps, good food and games in as well.
Here is a little recap of our mini fourth of July celebration.

|Land of the free and home of the brave.|
A true test of burger bravery - homemade Adirondack burgers. DELISH!
All in all it was a perfect low-key day!
Thank You to all who have served and continue to serve our great country. It is because of you that our independence and freedom is maintained and honored.
God bless you all and God bless America!!
What did you do to celebrate America's birthday?

I hope you had a splendid weekend!!
Ours was filled with sunshine, air-conditioning, glutony,
outdoor games, running, fun times with great friends,
endless episodes of Swamp People (creepily intriguing)
AHHHH - pure bliss.
Here's hoping your weekend was just as great!
