Where's the honey, dammit!?

Thanks for all the well wishes yesterday. I forgot to go buy fresh garlic for Robin's remedy yesterday so I ran out this morning to get some. I purchased my fresh garlic and fresh lemon and some of that Airborne stuff and a bag of zinc lollipops for Bug and came home to whip up a cup of "tea" from Around the Island. :)

And now I can't find the honey.

Where did the honey go? Could we seriously have used all the honey and I didn't know about it? Bug does have an affinity for peanut butter and honey sandwiches. But who runs out of honey? That's like running out of salt or ketchup or dried parsley. It's just something you always have.

I'll probably find it after I clean out the cabinet in its entirety or buy more honey.

I did find an unopened bottle of B Complex that expired in 2006. I took one anyhow. Do vitamins really expire?

So I'm loading up on every immunity boosting thing I can find and hoping for the best.

In other news, I've sort of become obsessed with diaper cakes. My BFF is expecting her first child and I'm throwing her baby shower on the 19th so I made a diaper cake for her.

Diaper Cake

She's got a giraffe theme going and I was pleased to be able to make one that didn't look so traditional. I had a lot of fun doing it, actually! I followed the instructions from this YouTube video from Carolyn Braden:

I made the cake in the time it took to watch True Blood on HBO the other night.

If I can do it, anyone can. Seriously.

So then I was on Etsy looking at other peoples baby cakes and I'm all gung ho to add more to my cake now. Just look at all these cakes!

I know, the cute hurts. I think I'm going to add a little of that crinkly stuff and maybe a giraffe print fuzzy blankie or something. Ya think?

I am so NOT crafty. My diaper cake would end up looking more like a the-stuff-that-goes-in-the-diaper cake. Yours looks awesome!

I don't know if vitamins expire...but I guess taking an expired one is better than not taking one at all, right?

LOL we run out of honey ALL THE TIME. I think the dog gets into it too or something (ewww... kidding) Today at the store I found (drum roll) "manuka" honey, which is supposedly one of the best for fighting off ailments.

Awesome diaper cake!! Mine would not be quite as pretty or symmetrical...oops ;-)

Yeah, I don't know if my cake would look like that...
when I try, thinking it will be easy,, not so much. So way to go! You rock the crafting party.

My mother-in-law, who usually has 18 of everything, went to the grocery store for ONE jar of mayo, and ran into a parked car. She ended up having to go to the police station, the poor old bat.

Morale: buy your honey (and mayo) in bulk.

Um, of course I meant "moral" not "morale". Writing "morale" when I mean "moral" give me bad "morale".
