I'm A Year Older

We celebrated my Birthday (29, of course) last night. It was a fun day of being lazy and playing video games followed by a yummy dinner with family & friends. 
I was spoiled by the good company and good food. I feel like a lucky girl. 

A Sneak Peek

I'm planning a baby shower.
It's for Nichole and the soon to join us baby Kloe - yep, it's a girl baby shower!
This is what has been keeping me away from the computer. I spend my evenings and free time fiddling with paper in preparation for the shower. Here are a few sneak peek shots of the shenanigans I'm up to...
The party is this Saturday so better pics will be here soon!

Cupcakes & Cars

Huge, rainbow colored cupcakes that is. Last week was Kolbi's friends birthday and we put together this super sized cupcake cake for her. Of course, it was rainbow with some sugar sprinkles on top - turned out cute! Not sure how it tasted though because they didn't save me a piece!

And on the Hot Rod front...
Check it out, it's like a real vehicle now. I tried to find a before pic to post but we've had the Hot Rod for so long that the coming home pics are not on this computer! I will see what I can dig up for a full Hot Rod story at some point. Anyway, it drives now. Even has a license plate! Here is Kolbi & her friend trying to look cool in the back.  

And here is Riley trying to push it up the driveway. There was a little 'accident' that involved running out of gas and it had to be pushed home. All I did was snap a few pics - no pushing cars for me!

F This I'm Outta Here!

...followed by flipping a table full of glassware over and me storming out of the house. Ha Ha Ha Ha - it's from an old Saturday Night Live skit - does anyone but me remember it? It's one of my favorites and in any situation I'm probably thinking of doing that in my head and cracking myself up. So anyway, I am outta here just not in a mad way. I'm headed to LA for a scrapbook show. 

I'm frantically trying to pack and make sure I don't forget anything. Don't worry I plan on visiting lost of scrapbook stores (totally work related, right?!) and of course,
 Johnny Cupcakes. 

I was totally looking forward to going to the Flower Market but turns out it is not open on Sundays :( Oh well, I'll save that for another time.  I've been busy working and sneaking in some grocery deals with Nichole - my coupon mentor. We hit Albertson's the other day and I just have to show off the crazy amount of stuff I got for $47. 

(ya - that's totally 36 jars of Ragu, 15 boxes of cereal, 19 Rice Sides, 4 packs of IBC, 3 Skippy, 12 boxes of Qtips, 4 1/2 gallons of Breyers, 
2 boxes of Klondikes - we ate 1 before the pic, 2 jugs of ALL and 1 gallon of milk)

Ok - so I am OUTTA HERE!
