Beautiful day today! I went to St. Sebastian’s festival and hung out with some of my brothers. 🙂
Always a lot to do and see! I really like how vibrant the colors are on this ride!
My youngest bro had a wristband and went on every “good” ride including this one. I used to love going on the UFO!
After seeing him ride hop for a while, I caved and bought tickets for one ride. (These cost me $5!)
Of course I had to go on the most eye catching ride – the super high swings! I didn’t dare bring my phone with me!
Once back on the ground, I snagged an affordable hotdog and tea from the church’s booth the Quick Stop. 🙂
After having cotton candy for dessert and winning a glass in the dime toss, it was time to wrap it up. I had fun and am glad I went. 🙂 Can’t wait for my parish festival!
Thanks for reading!
A lot of anime and manga have little Japanese flags that pop up in random places – including on top of food. Why? Dunno. Maybe shameless self promotion? I’ve never bothered researching it, but have implemented it in some of my own characters/story lines with American flags and this has now spread to my food.
So, a little while back I purchased a pack of American flag toothpicks so I could start decorating my food too and tonight I did just that…
Japan, eat your heart out.
Can’t get much more American than this! XD

Another very Un-Japanese post: Just Another Friday in Lent…
13″x9″ Carrot Cake
Today is my mom’s birthday and being the thoughtful, loving and caring daughter that I am, I made her a carrot cake – from scratch.
This year I followed along with the recipe from Food Network with the exception of a few things such as pastry flour (All Purpose will have to do), omitting salt, not using a sifter (mine died T^T), using a 13X9 instead of three 9″ round pans and not following the time guidelines. (24 hours before frosting the cake??! Not happening. ) The carrot cake is topped with cream cheese frosting and walnuts – and of course I had to do the obligatory carrots on top. 😀 Since the batter tasted so good I am confident that when it’s time to serve, the completed cake will taste even better! 🙂
Runnyrunny makes homemade pocky! ^O^
This looks amazing! Too bad I don’t have the ingredients on hand or I’d totally make this for dinner tonight!
