It was a rainy Sunday yesterday, and it was actually kind of nice to hole up with the family and just do little things around the house. Though some things were not so little, like getting the paint up in Ferris' future room. It's almost there now, I just need to do one more top coat. It's a lovely, buttery light yellow. I can't wait to put up all the cute things for him and make it a nice space for him to spend his time.I came out from painting the room at one point to find this:

so sweet

So I also recently bought this cook book:

Would you even know that I'm trying to diet? I still have pregnancy weight and my little guy is 8 months old! It's probably because I can't stop trying out things like this! There's nothing like a recipe that uses an entire pound of butter to ruin my plans. I love butter. I seriously, seriously love butter.'s my finished product:

zucchini spice cake whoopie pies with honey lemon buttercream

So, yes, they are delicious. The recipe I used for the cake part was actually for pumpkin spice cake, but I had a squash/zucchini thing and and thought, how can I take this healthy, fresh gourd and make something completely unhealthy? They are just lovely to eat, though and they took 2 hours to make, so maybe I can write off some of the time making them as calories burned? Yeah, right.
