The Amazing Paleo Watermelon Un-cake - You've Gotta Try It!

I've never (never!) met a cake I didn't like. And I'm not one of those people who thinks fruit can pass for dessert. I generally like to keep my cake void of fruit and vice versa.

But in honor of my husband (a man who LITERALLY eats an apple for dessert about three nights a week) turning 31, I made a small exception to this no-fruit-in-my-cake rule.

So I set out to make this watermelon cake recipe I found on Pinterest. And unlike most things I find on Pinterest, it did not result in me nursing second degree burns from a hot-glue-gun or crying on the kitchen floor while questioning my very existence.

I guess what I'm saying is, I highly recommend giving this one a try.

My official endorsement: So easy, I could do it! So good, I liked it!

Top 10 Excuses Why I Haven't Updated My Blog Since August

10. Fall TV premieres... (WHY am I still watching Grey's Anatomy? Can someone please tell me this? Is there some sort of support group I should be joining?)
9. #MSWL and #AdPit and basically all of Twitter.
8. Road trips.
7. Toddler. Just... toddler.
6. Christmas shopping.
5. Christmas wrapping.
4. Christmas traveling.
3. Christmas recovering.
2. Manuscripts. Manuscripts, manuscripts, manuscripts! Write all the things!
1. My dog ate my blog. Ok, I don't have a dog, but if I did, this would totally happen to me somehow.

The point is: I'm sorry, and I'll try to do better. I promise. Happy New Year!
