Let Me Eat Cake

For me, weddings are about one thing:


Check out the lengths I will go to in order to ensure nobody messes with my cake - read about it in today's Chicago Parent.

Update:  Aunt Ellen sent me this classic picture from her wedding and I had to share. That would be me with the "Dorothy Hamill" haircut (which to lead to hundreds of people commenting to my mom:  "What a darling little boy!").

  1. I totally love Aunt Ellen. We should all be Aunt Ellen :) And, by the way, I think I could out-do your death stare any day of the week (or, so they tell me).

    1. Them's be strong words. I do believe I'll have to witness that death stare at some point just to see.

      And Aunt Ellen IS awesome.

    1. Sadly, I think they caught it on film. Can't wait to see the wedding proofs. Ug.

    1. Cake is worth a double-chin in my book. (;

  4. That moment at the end where your Aunt gets you your cake? That made me cry a little...reminded me of my Aunt! So great. I have to say almost every party is all about the cake for me. I invent celebrations just to have an excuse for cake.

    1. Can tomorrow be Marianne Day? How do you feel about German Chocolate. I'll be over.

      Didn't mean to make you cry! Aunt Ellen has always been good to her family. We called her Auntie Wee-Wee growing up because nobody could say "Ellen Marie." The fact that she still talks to us is amazing.

  5. Your Aunt Ellen is my kind of lady! I'm with you about weddings and cake!! I have to say though I've been to a few where it wasn't the kind I would have wanted (carrot cake, who chooses carrot cake for a wedding cake?). I always make sure I save someone for cake!

    LOL with the death stare; I'm sure though that the couple appreciated him getting back in line so to speak. When my niece got married a few years back, her ring bearer did everything to try to take attention away from what was going on between the bride and groom. His mom didn't give him the death stare either. Finally my brother's wife gave him the death stare and told him to come and sit by her and he suddenly behaved :)

    1. What kind of sicko does CARROT CAKE? That's just wrong.

      And if that ring-bearer's mom hasn't developed a death stare by now??? Boy, is she in BIG trouble!

  7. Loved the story @Chicago Parent. I went to a wedding this summer and while everyone was into the dancing, the brides 3 y/o daughter was tasting the icing. It was so funny who could be mad? :)
