1st off I always wonder if anyone is reading. Hopefully you are. I love comments, so if you are reading just drop me a quick comment to know you are out there.
As you may know I have made some cakes for Ev and Lauren's birthdays after taking the Wilton Course 1. Well I found a website called Cake Central that I have started posting my cakes to. They even have a contest on there that I entered Lauren's Princess cake into. It is a Fairy Tale cake contest. Voting starts January 28th so vote if you can. Right now I posed Evan's Mickey cake and Lauren's Princess cake there. It is fun getting comments from others on my cakes and seeing all the cool things people do. I also enjoy watching Ace of Cakes on the Food Network. Amazing what they create.
I have also been planning for Evan and Lauren's birthdays. Yes Lauren's isn't until April 13th and Evan's isn't until May 26th but I am a planner. I spend a lot of time planning their parties. I already have some good ideas for cupcakes and have the pans for their cakes and the party supplies and favors for the kids. In another life I must have been an event planner because I love to do it.
I am hoping to get out with some friends soon without the kids. I tend to not spend too much time away from the kids, I already feel bad enough leaving them the 3 days I am at work, but I know I need to focus more on me. I have not been very good at having balance, the kids always look great and I have my hair in a pony tail and look like I have been through the ringer. I am well aware of this and trying to fix it, but it is so hard! Other Mom's I am sure you feel the same and your comments will make me feel better. Right now my playgroup Moms are trying to plan a night out, and I am planning a night out with some friends I used to work out with and another night out with a bunch of my other friends from college, hometown, work, etc. It usually takes a while to plan these things for everyone to make it so we will see how long it takes.
As for vacation, we are going to Disney in May and I am super excited for that! I loooove it there. I am a total Disney/Mickey freak. This will be my 9th time. When I was in High School I even got to march down Main Street when I was in the Majorettes twice. So cool! I think we are going to have a blast and already can't wait for our breakfast at the Castle and our dinner with Mickey. I have already gotten the kids tons of Disney shirts and a Cinderella dress for Lauren. Here is a flashback pic of us in Disney in 2004 before kids.
