Remember me?

I hope you didn't forget about me! I know, I suck. I haven't blogged since Tuesday. Things have just been busy, and will be for another week I think. It is a good busy though mostly. :)

I've been trying to get the house a little cleaner and organized. I'd like to try to make room for a larger Christmas tree in our living room this year. We've resorted to a table top one the last few years because we've had so many toy's and baby items around there just wasn't room...this year I hope its different. Bree will be so excited to see a big tree I think, and so will I, Christmas is my favorite time of year....until I have go to shopping for it anyways...then I get sad!

I've also been busy making cakes & cupcakes, and this week I'll be doing more cakes & cupcakes and even some cookies by the weekend. I've been blessed with some paying orders, which is nice :) I'll post some pics of what I worked on last week in a minute. This weeks cake orders are a 2 tier water/sky scene (not a paid order, for Kelsey's friend, Kels is buying the supplies, I'm making it, it is her gift to her friend...she kinda suckered me into it...) and a Elmo cake with some Sesame Street cupcakes to go with it. The cookie order is for 3 dozen, for 2 girls ages 16 & 19 (Thanks for the referral Cindy!). I'm excited to do it all, nervous too...I want it to all turn out awesome, and it never seems to meet my expectations, I get frustrated. I got my supplies bought today for it all, I hope I got everything I need. I'm also going to make some extra cookies, small ones, and platter them up. I'm hoping to get Bill to take some to his jobs for people to see & try, maybe have the girls take some to school for the teachers etc. to sample...maybe leave a few business cards with it (I better hurry and make some!). Maybe it will bring in some orders for me. Christmas is coming up, maybe someone would want some holiday cookies or cake for parties.



Those were made for the same customer, her daughter had a glamour type party where they put make up on the girls, did their nails & hair etc. .

After the cake order was picked up, I thought about blogging...but changed my mind, I decided to jump into reading the book I got at the library! My favorite author is Janet Evanovich, her newest Stephanie Plum series came out in June, I got on the waiting list at the library then...and just got it on Friday! Took long enough! I figured I should hurry and read it, since I knew I'd be busy with cakes, cupcakes and cookies this week. Hurry I did...started the book at 7 p.m. that night, was finished by 1 a.m. It was awesome, as all her books are. I can't wait for the 17th one to come out ... maybe I should put my name on the library waiting list for it NOW lol.

I'm so behind on blogging. I've missed 2 or 3 Show Me Saturday's now. Not so bad though, since its hard to come up with ideas for it! I've also been given a few blog awards that I need to post about too...someday I'll catch up. I hope!

QOTD: Have you been spending your days recently?

My house is a disaster because I've been busy with fire stuff. Hoping next week is better!
