I tried my hand at making and decorating my first cake for Jon's birthday. Jon loves chocolate so I made a double layer chocolate cake with chocolate icing. Apparently he was impressed because he told his parents (before he knew I made it) that I bought him a cake. I was so proud. I need to work on my writing, but I was pleased with it for my first try. I'm sure Jon will love me showing the world his nickname :)
A close-up of my first attempt at decorating :)
Here's Jon opening his first present--a watch winder for his fancy schmancy watch he got on our honeymoon last year.
He loved it. Yay!
Next up, a new robe. (Jon loves lounging around in his robe, but it was time for a new one!) Here he is showing it off :)
I think he's a fan, don't you?
And last but not least, here is the birthday boy posing with his cake.
The first birthday I got to celebrate with Jon was his 30th, and it was the same day as The Kentucky Derby. Last year The Derby happened during our honeymoon. Although we have a pretty busy weekend ahead of us, but I'm hoping we still get to watch it. I love all of the hats (I'm a hat girl) and of course the history and energy that comes with the race.

Hope you all have a great Derby weekend!
