Weekend Update

While I'm quarantined at home and trying to get my daughter rehydrated, I figured I'd spend the time catching up on things. Or, catching you up on things.

Last Saturday I graduated from Course 1 of the Wilton Cake Decorating Classes! (I got a "diploma" and everything. Yay for me!) I loved every minute of it and can't wait to move on to Course 2. Here's the three masterpieces cakes I had to make for class (I did variations on them to "make them my own"):

The Rainbow Cake

The Clown Cake

The Rose Bouquet Cake

Everything except the clowns' heads are made out of frosting. Pretty snazzy, no? Lots of fun.

Speaking of Mothers' Day, I had a fabulous one, as usual. My sweet family always go all out to make me feel like the most special, most loved mother on the planet. The spoiling began early for me this year, with my wonderful husband giving me my gifts the day before, so I could use them for my final cake class. (He got me a much wanted cake supply tote and some cake spatulas). He also surprised me by making my ginormous amount of frosting for me so that I could actually make it to my final when I thought I was going to have to miss it. (BEST present EVER). When I got home from my class that night, a gorgeous arrangement of flowers was waiting for me in the middle of our kitchen table. I woke up the next morning to my annual Mothers' Day feast, this time waffles, eggs and ham. (Yum.)

I was showered with cards galore (I think my kids made me six cards each :) and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast as a family. After church we had an awesome dinner with my family at my sister's house, where we enjoyed the beautiful spring weather, I got some early birthday presents, and--the best part of the evening--my dad accused me of bringing a "lame cake from Yoke's" only to be shocked upon learning I had actually made it. Thank you Wilton classes!

Great weekend? I'd say so.

Remember When...

...i bought clothes based on trends and brand names and not on whether or not they'd make me look pregnant?

...going to the movies was more about the guy you were sitting next to and less about the actual movie?

...i didn't start a sentence with, "I read on Facebook..."? had relationships with actual people instead of their cell phones?

...skinny jeans made their debut and I laughed and said no one would ever wear those?

...when everything seemed black and white instead of so grey? forehead broke out in a crazy rash so I cut my own bangs for the first time in my life? No? Oh, that's cause it just happened three days ago. (I will post a picture as soon as my cousin/hairdresser does damage control.)

...i did a post about my cat and all heck broke loose? That was awesome.

...people used to write letters and verbally speak to each other?

...that month in eighth grade I wore cleats as regular shoes and my mom yelled at me for putting holes in all the carpet?

...that time I wanted to blog but didn't really have anything to blog about so I just spouted off nonsense?

Good times, good times.

Newest Trailer and Other Eclipse Related Stuff

And they just keep getting better and better.

Speaking of Eclipse, I only have 32 tickets left and several people have mentioned they want tickets but haven't given me a number yet, so they are not on the list. If you want a ticket, you better snag one ASAP!!! They will be gone in a matter of days, guaranteed.
