TGIF!

Whew the last few days have been hectic around here! Yesterday I was busy making cakes and cupcakes for Meghan and Emma’s school’s raffle.

I made 2 heart shaped cakes and two batches of cupcakes, which took me awhile because I realized that I only had a 12 cupcake pan and each cake mix

makes 24! Thankfully it only takes about 20 mins for each batch.. and my oven actually got along with me (mostly) and didn’t burn anything! I did however

undercook one cake and then had to put it back in the oven, making it sink a little in the middle. But nothing some icing didn’t cover! πŸ˜‰

To keep my sanity during this process I want to thank.. Duncan Hines cake mixes and icing!

My iPod and Pavorotti (yes opera is my new obsession)

And of course a nice glass of red wine

Today I helped with the raffle at the school and organized cupcakes for each class. Well after that… I NEVER WANT TO SEE OR SMELL ANOTHER CUPCAKE AGAIN!

But on a good note … Emma LOST HER FIRST TOOTH TODAY!
She is so happy and jumped and screamed all over the house! SheΒ  isΒ  so looking forward to that $2.00 from the Tooth Fairy! πŸ™‚
