Chef Addy

Addy made scrambled eggs for dinner last night and did it all herself from start to finish! The only thing I did for her was turn on the stove - the egg cracking, stirring and cooking was all her! I look forward to her cooking me more meals in the future. :)

Wilton Course 1 Final Cake

I wasn't even going to post it because it's not all that exciting and not all that different from the cake I made last week. It's hard to be creative and do much in the class though - I need to spread out!

However I signed up for Course 2 which starts next Tuesday so there will be plenty more cakes!

like I said - obsessed

It would just be awful if we didn't have cake in our house for a day so I made this "practice" cake yesterday. I had planned on making it for my final cake on Monday but now that I made it I might have to think of another design for my final! And I think I need to send future cakes to work with Mitch - I can't keep eating like this...
I haven't learned how to make leaves yet so don't look too closely at my first attempts. :)

more cake!

I am having way too much fun with this cake decorating class. Our instructor told us we didn't need to bring a cake to class last night but what fun is that? So I did anyway. :)

The burgundy blob is my first attempt at a rose. I've been practicing today and hope to make a rose cake for my final cake next week. I can't wait to sign up for the next class!

I started taking a cake decorating class at Michael's this month and this is the cake I decorated last night. It was so much fun!

what a weekend

Our weekend in Florida was so incredible! What I wouldn't give to have a vacation home there and spend weeks at a time!

We stayed near Seaside - this is a view down the street

This is a view we had every night from our hotel balcony - need I say more?

falling behind!

These are Addy's 2 latest art class creations. I like the first two better but she had fun doing these so that's all that matters. The one on the left they used some type of mud and the one on the right was fun with spray paint.

I feel like I've been running around like a chicken with it's head cut off for the last week or two. And our internet, cable and phone being out for 2 days didn't help! Gotta love Comcast.
Today we're going to a craft fair that's supposed to be huge, then Addy has dance class, then Addy and I are going to get our nails done. :)
Tomorrow Mitch and I leave for our 4 day weekend ALONE! No kids, not even Morgan! My stomach is in knots just thinking about it.

Seven Years!

My gift to Mitch is that he gets to go to New Orleans to watch the Minnesota Vikings play the Saints. I had no desire to go. One of these years we might get back to getting each other actual gifts again!
