The Cake Wars
I am not the only engaged girl in the dLife editorial department - my fellow dLifer Z is also engaged to be married. This has our little editorial department all a-twitter about reception halls, wedding favors, invitations, and bridal gowns.
And because Z and I are having our weddings a mere week apart, we're stressing about the same stuff. Both searching for photographers. Both on the hunt for a reasonable DJ. Both scouring bridal shops for the perfect gown. Both with desks piled high with glossy bridal magazines.
Therefore, we've established The Cake Wars.
We first thought about having the tortoise and the hare, but neither of us are blazing through the timeline.
"The tortoise and the tortoise?" I suggested.
Z looked at me very seriously.
"I would like to be Grimace."
I couldn't help but laugh. "Grimace?"
Dead serious. "Yes. I think he's cute."
Okay, so my cake is topped by a tortoise (aka Donatello from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) and Z is represented by her cute pal, Grimace.
Each tier of the cake represents a completed task. (We already have a few tiers pre-labeled as "stress out.") At the top of the timeline there are wedding bells with our respective wedding dates.
Here's how Grimace and Donatello are battling it out.
The Great dLife Cake War has begun. Onwards to May! (And tomorrow I'll stop making this into a wedding blog. Besides, I already write for one of those.)
