For the 4th of July hubby and I were invited to go out on Lake Union in our friend's boat to watch the fireworks! I have always seen all of the boats on the lake and wanted to be one of the boat people watching the fireworks from right below. I got very seasick as we made our way to the Ballard Locks, but was fine by the time we were at the lake. We rafted up with 4 other friend's boats to make a big floating party. I made some very patriotic cupcakes in the shape of a flag, but my country only has 4 states to fit into my cupcake carrying case!
I wore the dress that I had ordered from Victoria's Secret for the wedding we are going to next weekend (see early entry). I love the dress, but it's a bit too Laura Ashley curtains to wear to a wedding. It was pretty crazy to be almost 6 months pregnant, in a floor length sundress, climbing from boat to boat, an amazing day though!
He & I got to the party early to help set up the decorations while Kris & Joel worked on the food. It turned out to be the hotest day of our summer so far, so here I am very pregnant in 90 degree heat hanging up flowers and fish! I had made chocolate covered Jamaican flag cakes on sticks (with big fake engagement ring toppers!) using the same recipe from Bakerella that I had used on a previous baby shower cake ball project. They were a bit more tricky to cover with chocolate, but hubby came up with the brilliant idea of cooling them top down on wax paper to create the flat tops, so easy to make the Jamaican flags with icing.
It ended up being a super hot & fun day!
