I want you to know,
that my Easter Wheatgrass Centerpieces really filled out. Pretty derned happy about this.
(Wrinkled linen! Shield your eyes!)
You should do this next year. You really should. I'll bring you by a cedar box and some wheat. Let me know.
I also want you to know,
that I've been trying to master the art of the frosted cupcake.
And it's been a struggle for me.
Well how hard can it be?
Pretty darned hard, apparently. For me at least.
You ever decorated a cupcake, and then you realize it looks exactly like a poo swirl?
I'm gonna let you in on a little secret:
for me, most things ('specially like this) don't come easily. At all. I try hard. But I "Never give up!! Never surrender!!"
Don't ask me about how my bread/breadsticks/rolls are coming along.
Anyway, I'm on my, like, 7 dozenth round, here.
I'm determined. (psst get those cute Easter toppers here.)
And ya know? I don't hope to be some rockstar cake decorator; I know my limits. But is a couple dozen cute cupcakes TOO MUCH TO ASK??
I had a great friend (Thank you EMILY!!) who gave me a notebook/journal not long ago--
I am loving this thing.
Seriously, ("seriously" must make it in to every post. Thank you.)
this thing goes everywhere with me. It's not just my journal. I write ev.er.y.thing. in here.
From thoughts, to lists, to ideas, to my list of "people who annoy me".
I kidd. I don't have a list of people who annoy me. I only have a mental list.
This thing sits by my bed. It sits in the kitchen. I take it in my purse.
I love having all my brain dumps in one place.
I want you to know what I've been wasting my time doing. Besides starting 5 projects while none of them get finished.
My 4 year old's new obsession is our Super Nintendo. Yes. We kept our Super Nintendo. We are totally old school. "Old school, great! What's that, like code for something?"
And well, I don't mean to brag or anything, heh, but I'm kind of a SNES master. I can kick some serious Super Mario World trash.
Plus my son calls Yoshi "Sushi", and that's pretty cool, too.
