Snicker Cupcakes

I FINALLY DID IT!!!!  I made a pretty Cupcake.  Thanks to Jennifer and her very inspiring blog.  (Click on her name for the recipe)  I have made cupcakes before but never like this.  You should have seen the first one that I pipped the frosting on,  but it didn't take long and I remembered that tip I learned to help make the peak of the frosting go a little higher.  Place a circle of frosting in the center of the cupcake.

What An Awesome Day Today!!!

 Honey I'm Home!!! I went to Sendiks
Are the words I hear in my head.  LOL!  I based my trip to Milwaukee today for 3 reasons.  

1. Shopping at Sendiks Market.... I have never been to Sendiks before and thought It would be a neat grocery store to check out. Considering the commercials on TV really talked it up. Very NICE grocery store I must say.  Carpeting through out.  In the dairy section all refrigerator items are behind closed doors like in the freezer dept. I didn't check out absolutely everything but from what I saw I liked.  And the cashier was in love with my hair.  She said her and a friend are going to get there's done just like mine.    

Happy Birthday To Me!!! (Sept 7th)

2.  Boston Store...To use my $20 coupon at the Boston Store (before it expired) to get the Fossil watch that I have been drooling over since the last time I visited my sister.  Umm Yeah.... that would have been last year sometime.

Last but not least...Barnes & Noble/Starbucks

3.  I love Barnes & Noble/Starbucks.....I have this thing for books. Some people may be surprised by this but I do. I love the ones that are photograph heavy that inspire me, and teach me how to do stuff that I'm interested in learning more about. And low and behold I found the book of the year...... The Mac Book..The Ultimate Handbook for Mac Owners. Where have you been???  I have had so many questions about imovie, and iphoto that I could not for the life of me figure out. This will save me a $99 class fee, and several trips to the Apple Store which is about 1 hour away from my home (that would be one way).
And....What better way to look at all of your favs with a piece of Cheesecake Factory cheescake, and a Mocha Latta.  Yeah I know...Sugar Overload.

I love the changes that Blogger has made for adding pictures and resizing.

Thats right it was a lazy Sunday full of HGTV (seriously).....lounged in my evening wear almost all day, and felt guilty about it. Why? Because I have so much to do with making Wedding invitations....But...I worked 6 days in a row, and just needed to take a TRUE day off and do nothing. Got dressed long enough to go get Taco Bell (drive through of course) and then we came home and watched a movie from ondemand called Something Borrowed. I thought it was good. Chick flick kind of movie. And even Al watched it with me. He didn't even want to watch it at first either....LOL! Here's to a good week!!

Finally..... an Idea!!!!

I have been pondering over my next quilt design. And after looking at one of my favorite blogs Make Life Sweet I know what I am going to make. Now how long will it take before I actually get started on it? I want to make one for my queen size bed.

These are the fabrics I will be using to make it.

On another note:
I think daily about my blog, designing, and being the little creater that I am. And I get mad at myself when I don't do things that I love. Imagine what I would get accomplished if I wasn't wasting so much time reading status updates on facebook.
Next month I think I should make a list of goals that I can accomplish. Well heck I will begin my list right now.
1. Get a wedding planner book. Maybe I will find one at the bridal fair that I will attend this weekend.
2. clean off the table in my craft room
3. Actually finish one of the scarves that I have started
4. Pick a date in March to launch an open house for the new Spring and Summer Scentsy catalog that is coming out.
5. Start reading the book Cleo, it is about a Cat. My Mom is letting me borrow it.
So I think this is a good start....and I don't necessarily think I need to wait until Feb. 1st to start.
Hope you all have a good evening.
