Saturday she had her friend party with a Frozen theme. Of course there was a sub-theme...horses. Almost all her gifts fell into one of those two categories.
And because I'm human, and because I actually handled it surprisingly well, I will tell you about my cake fail.
The Elsa doll that was supposed to be in the center of Ellie's cake was abnormally tall compared to traditional Barbies, so Friday night I ended up baking two additional layers to make her skirt. After I hollowed out the center and began to insert Elza, I turned the cake and realized there was a large section falling apart. There were so many layers that it was hard to have a hole in the middle without the cake having structural problems. I learned that without getting an engineering degree. Impressive, huh? I repaired it and began the first layer of frosting. Then I stopped and stared at the cake for a few minutes. I had three hours to finish the cake and get ready for the party, which included showering so I wasn't still in my running clothes when the party started.
For the record, I have been running. I've still been getting in at least four runs each week, which I've been able to be ok with because technically I'm tapering. Saturday the incredible Janae joined me for most of my 10 miles. For normally being a solitary runner, I couldn't love my runs more than I do when I'm running with Janae.
