Denisa some motivation. They are coming over for the weekend and I am soooooo excited. I have been away from home for 3 1/2 years for college and now almost 4 years of marriage and believe it or not I think this is the first time they are coming to visit me when I was not moving and there was packing or unpacking to do or I had just had a baby. I have never gotten to just hang out and enjoy a visit with them. So, when I found out they were going to get to come over for the weekend I was very pleased. Last summer when we went to the beach Denisa had Paula Dean's chocolate fantasy magazine and this cake was on the cover and I promised her that if she ever came to visit I would make it for her. Keeping my promise when they came the week after Bubba was born I made it. My mother in law fussed at me the whole time telling me I should not be on my feet but I made it. It was fabulous!!!! Well, in (now) tradition I made it again this afternoon for Nana Bama. See, Daddy and Denisa do not travel like most of us. Their 5 1/2 hr trip will go something like this: get up and pack, get on the road, stop on the way out of town for breakfast, make it to Huntsville (2 hrs) stop at Cracker Barrel for "brunch", make it to the town outside of Nashville, stop and grab a snack and get gas, make it to Henderson (20 mins from my house) stop and maybe grab something sweet and stretch legs, 8 hrs later finally make it to my house. And that is if they do not see any interesting billboards on the way. Well, I may be exaggerating a little but not much I can assure you. I'm hoping that this cake and the kids will motivate Nana Bama and dad to get here a little faster. Drive careful we can't wait to see you!
We will give you 6 1/2 hrs to get here then for every 30 minutes later we may have to start taking slices of cake hostage. HAHAHAHA just kidding. Take as long as you need we are just counting the seconds. Love you guys. We will be sure to enjoy some cake for everyone.
