Hey, Girl

Red Velvet Cake, Hey Girl, New Year's Day, Hey Girl Cake TopperExcept for the outside lights on the house and the wreath on the door, Christmas is put away, the needles from the tree and ornament glitter all vacuumed up, and everything is back to routine.  After having my husband home during the week over the holiday, it's been hard to have him go back to work, and Phoenix has missed him, too, but baby boy and I are finding our own routine again, as well as both recovering from a little cold.

Our New Year's Eve was quiet; we spent the evening with some friends, then came home early to put Phoenix to bed, then watch movies in our pajamas, eat popcorn and wait for midnight.  And there was red velvet cake to welcome in the New Year as well...


I really love red velvet cake paired with crunchy toasted coconut, and you can find my recipe for it here.  It's just a beautiful combination with the moist and fluffy, lightly cocoa-ed cake and the creamy cream cheese buttercream.  A few sugar pearls adorned the cake like a pretty little necklace, and the Hey Girl topper was just for me.

This is the year I turn 40, and as of April when our new baby boy arrives, I'll be quite outnumbered by all the boys in our house, but that won't stop me from doing all the same things with our little boys that I would have done with girls.  They'll help me bake cakes and cookies and learn to help with household chores, and I know that Phoenix is going to be the sweetest big brother ever.  I can't wait to see everything that this year brings!

  1. That back-to-routine feeling is such a strange one. I'm still not quite there yet as work is still empty with people slowly drifting back in. I also haven't yet done any baking! I love the sugar pearls on this - it looks really dainty (as well as delicious)
