'Such Pretty Things' - such a pretty blog!!

Happy Monday dear readers!  Catherine and I hope you had a simply mahvelous weekend.  I was blessed to celebrate four good friends' birthdays this weekend, and as such, attended a birthday brunch for a near and dear girlfriend (and she's Catherine's little sis to boot), an afternoon birthday party

Beautiful Cakes for Any Occasion

There is simply nothing like a custom-made cake to put that final touch on a special celebration.  And in this day and age of TV shows like Cake Wars and Cake Boss, not to mention the oodles of designs to be found on the internet, the inspirations out there are endless.

Oh Baby!!

Today will mark two firsts for the Buncolator blog... one, Catherine and I have decided to stop writing in the royal "we" - although blimey, it's been fun :o) - and write our posts as individuals.  That way, our readers (that would be you!) can get to know each of us.  

Secondly, this will be the first post in a series of posts on baby showers.

Beer Punch (aka Raspberry Beer Cocktail)!!

We hope you all enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend!  Here in Atlanta, it was hot but lovely, perfect for hanging out at the pool, a cookout, or just out on the porch.  We had great holiday weekends with our families and friends, appreciating all that the service men and women of the U.S. have done for our wonderful nation, now and of course in the past.  They are heroes, each and every one.

In honor of Summer's official kickoff weekend, we wanted to share a favorite recipe with you - "Beer Punch."  OK, we must admit, it's not really called Beer Punch.... its technical name is actually the much-more dignified "Raspberry Beer Cocktail."
