… here are the results of cookie class! Funnest thing EVER.
I am so inspired by this project. I check out Ali’s blog regularly but haven’t been on the computer much lately. A couple of weeks ago however, I noticed Leigh Penner following suit and just absolutely love love love the idea. I think it may be partially because I’m also so pumped about the We R Memory Keepers Multi Packs. And please, if anyone can tell me where I can find these in stock, wow would I love you. They’re hard to get!
So the decision has been made. Starting first thing Monday morning, I am going to document everything. Should be interesting to see what really is involved in a week in my life!
Disclaimer: I don’t know about posting it on here everyday, like Leigh and Ali did… that just feels like setting myself up for failure. Have you seen when I last blogged???Soooooo, life has been a little crazy lately. We are officially putting our house in Morris up for sale and moving back to Winnipeg… I am SO stoked about this! We move quite a bit for Johnny’s job, which I am always happy to do. Honest! We always refer to it as a new adventure in our life… I am one of those types that wants to see and do everything and I love all the spontaneity. The only part about it that I don’t care for is all the money it costs us to be obtaining new digs every few years. Yeah yeah, why don’t we just rent, right? Well, what a waste, don’t you think? And maybe we would have if we had lost… but so far we haven’t lost. We also haven’t gained, really… but the real estate market is hopping enough to keep us afloat.
These two were done at the MSS Super Scrap Day in Winkler with Kim and Tracy! It worked out really nice. I went to work with Johnny, Kim and Trac picked me up and off we went. Had a great lunch (as usual) at Twisters, got some shopping in and back to work. Lots of laughs and meeting great new people that day!
And finally… to update you on my Cake Class progress…. check out my Level 3 final cake project! Also known as my little niece Kali’s birthday cake! Thankfully I have a very flexible teacher who doesn’t make us follow the lesson plan exactly… she let us do whatever cake we wanted, as long as she approved it! Thanks Les!
Who wants to join me in my “week in the life” challenge next week?
Have a great day everyone!
First I will catch you up on the month of February… I started taking the Wilton Cake Decorating classes. It is something I have always been interested in, but the time was never right. Well I guess I can’t say that about February either, but I was waiting no more! Also taking the class are my BFF and Mama #2 – talk about bonus girl time together! It’s been great meeting up once a week for dinner and class! So, there are 4 levels and 4 classes to each level. Level 1 saw me learn how to make a Rainbow Cake using the star tip, edible icing clowns, alllll sorts of flowers and of course, the Wilton Rose! I learned soooo much in those 4 classes. Level 2 started March 2nd and for this level, there isn’t any cakes (in other words, I’m getting alot of sad faces at work and at home on Wednesday mornings, hee hee!)… Just alot more learning different flowers and of course, Royal Icing! I am most excited for Levels 3 & 4 – FONDANT & GUM PASTE. Yippeeeee! So pretty much, I will be the Cake Boss.
And finally… off to sunny Mexico. Kim and I decided to stay at the 4 Points Sheraton at the Airport. With me living out of town and it being winter, you just never know. Plus it only added to the fun, so that’s what we did! Also, since I only wear flip flops to the airport when on the way to a sunny destination, it helped that they had a walkway to the airport and I didn’t have to walk through the snow in my sandals
After leaving Winnipeg at 8:55am with a connection in Toronto, we arrived in Cancun at 5:05pm! Quite a bus ride to the resort but I gotta tell you… when we finally got there and dumped our stuff in our room, I got the craziest and most awesome surprise! BRAT was there! Yes, that’s right – the bee-otch herself, in the flesh! Her and her husband Robert (aka Poncho via) booked a trip at the same resort and everybody knew BUT ME! What a wonderful way to begin a vacation! It was so great having them there with us and we have so many memories and things to laugh about!!!
It would take HOURS to post every detail of the trip… we spent hours lazing beside (and in) the Caribbean Ocean on the powder white sand, visited Playa Del Carmen (my personal fave), Cozumel, lots of shopping, Xcaret, Tulum and another new amazing spot, Akumal! Akumal would be where Kim swam along side Sea Turtles! Talk about amazing. We all got awesome tans and I am now shedding skin worse than a snake Here’s some of my fave pics of our adventure (out of order, as per usual :
I spent an entire walk down 5th in Playa devoted to finding a Sombrero to wear on the plane home that was under $10. After 10 shops and seriously 2 hours of this, I wheeled and dealed someone down to $8.50 and what do I see not 2 minutes later? HAHA! That’s what I get for being CHEAP!
How perfect that this was floating around in the pool
What an amazing time… just the R&R we both needed! Thanks Kim for such a wonderful, relaxing and memorable time and remember – no more bus rides at 11pm in Playa Del Carmen! HA!
The weather has been fabulous ever since I got home and the other day, we actually spring cleaned. I’m serious, this actually happened. Aside from washing the floors (we ran out of Swiffer Juice) and the garage, we’re done! Perhaps we could organize the storage room a bit, but other than that? We’re good to go! Now, if it snows again, I will have a real head start on spring
Have a great day all!
This weekend was awesome, and cupcake filled! Friday night, Johnny and I had planned to have a date night – so I headed to Winkler after work, we did a little shopping and then went to BP’s for dinner in Morden. We were going to go to a movie but since “Inglorious Bastards” wasn’t playing, we opted to just head back to Morris and call it a night.
