Cake, run, yoga, groceries and oh...work

Busy day over here in Sassyland! We got home late last night after some food and beers with the runners and tracksters. After stopping by the grocery store, I proceeded to make TWO layers of yellow cake for the man's bday lunch (he requested yellow cake w/ choc frosting). So as requested, I bought Betty Crocker cake mix and then chose a recipe to make for the frosting.

This morning, the dog and I hit the pavement for a 25 min run. Then I did some yoga before showering and getting ready for work. After the manfriend headed on his merry way, it was operation decorate cake time (hey, he can't know EVERYTHING I'm doing for his bday)!

I wanted to make the cake a little extra special so I decorated it like a bike wheel. Not gonna lie, I felt kind of creative using the icing and sprinkles. The man cycles AND works at a bike wheel manufacturer so really, it just makes perfect sense.

I offered to bring lunch and cake today for his office (there are only six of them). So, what will they be having?

-Subway party platter (with four assorted types of sandwiches)
-Sweet Onion & Barbecue flavored chips
(made here in Oregon and oh so yummy!)
-Dole caesar salad mix
-Double layer round yellow cake w/ choc frosting bike wheel birthday cake! (Photo to come. I can't find the damn camera cable cord.)

I think I'm earning some serious girlfriend points, for the record.

Any fun weekend plans? I'm hitting the big track meet up tonight with a fellow runner! Fun fun!

Wow, definite bonus girlfriend points! He better realize how good he has it. :) I can't remember the last time I was up early enough to do anything other than shower and drive fast to work, so I'm super jealous of your AM productivity.

This weekend I think I'm going to go hitch a ride on my dad and stepmom's boat at Raccoon Lake. SPF 45 here I come! Have an awesome weekend.
I'm not gonna lie, I kind of wish you were MY girlfriend after reading this post.

Good job on the running and yoga in the AM, I have not been able to drag my butt out of bed early enough this week to workout, even though I've had good intentions. Next week perhaps.
Um wow - you def win an award for best girlfriend or something. Lunch for him AND his co-workers? Awesome. Can't wait to see pics of the cake!!
