Raspberry Suite Challenge

Hi Friends

I'm so happy that I have gotten to participate in some challenges this week. Challenges are so fun to do. Too bad that the Mr. Linky isn't working, so I know that it will be more work for Dawn. Below is my entry for the Raspberry Suite challenge.
I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. We had a very nice weekend. We made some progress on home improvements, but also made time to relax and have fun. All-in-all it was wonderful. My dear husband extended his weekend, and took off today and tomorrow. (His birthday is tomorrow). He's been working so hard in school, so I'm glad he's taking some time off. I cam home today, and he had connected the XBox 360 and was trying it out. (Keep in mind that I bought this for his anniversary present which was over a month ago... It was still in the box until today).
I've baked and iced his cake. I made a Milky Way Cake which is yummy. It's VERY rich. The cake and icing are made with melted milky ways, so it is a chocolately caramelly yum-fest. Not very calorie friendly for those of us watching our waistline, but it is Carlin's birthday.
Have a great week
Lynnette

Oh girl I LOVE this! I know I've said this before but it seems ever one of your cards is better than the last!

And I'm super glad to be back. We had a great trip, but I need some home time now! Except at the moment I'm working really late to get caught up!
