It’s here, my lumberjack cake! Ohhhh I’m a lumberjack and I’m ok…
Seriously though, I might not be okay. I have a slight addiction. Well, slight would be an understatement really. Is there a word for a plaid obsession? I think it’s taking over my life!
Plaid themed Christmas cards. I get bonus points for getting the dog and the baby to look at the camera.
My hubs might very well be a lumberjack… oh my. I mean he DID technically chop down that Christmas tree. That counts right??
Everywhere I look #PlaidAllTheThings
It’s all About the Plaid
Maybe it’s because I’m an Oregonian.
Maybe because it’s the hottest trend on Pinterest right now.
It could be because I have a crush on #FashionSanta and I know his favorite color is plaid.
Or maybe it’s because I’m a child of the 90’s and if I start wearing mauve lipstick and JNCO jeans, someone please send help.
When hubs chopped down that Christmas tree all lumberjack like, my obsession with plaid became clear. I’m in love with lumberjacks. It makes sense: I love trees, I love beards, and I love plaid.
This lumberjack cake is a culmination of almost all my obsessions. If I could have worked in a mermaid I would have.
