I love this......
"They say with every mistake a lesson is learned. We'd like to refer to our "mistakes" as Misadventures. That way we have fun- we grow, we laugh, we cry, we raise our eyebrows in surprise and ask, "Did we just do that?!" You see, there are no mistakes- just amazingly memorable adventures that sometimes miss the mark."

Me and Mr. Bumble Bee

I have this beautiful friend and fellow blogger named Whimsey! She has an awesome blog that I love to read. She is real and her personality jumps off the screen at you.  She hosts contests and book clubs and mystery pictures! This week is a miniolympic contest with a point system.  If your comment on a post is her husbands favorite you get points. If someone comments to just cheer for you, you get points. It is a lot of fun. Today Whimsey asked us to tell them an embarrassing story and here is what I posted....
"I couldn't think of an embarrassing story, so I enlisted my family in the fun of "making fun" of me! I was pretty positive they wouldn't let me down and it turns out I was right! So my cousin fondly reminded me of this.....! "I believe I remember the time you sat on a huge bumble bee when we were all camping once and it stung your butt!" I read this on my cell phone in the middle of a grocery store and couldn't stop giggling! It reminded me of a similar bee incident about 7 years ago... My mom and I were haveing a nice picnic on a blanket in a park with Sami and some of her cousins when a huge bumble bee decided it was going to chase me...It did chase me, in circles, around the picnic blanket, in the middle of the park, with on lookers and my mother laughing hysterically at me! Evil bumble bees!!!! I Hate You!!!"

Thank you Shauna for the funny story!  Thank you Whimsey for helping me learn to be myself.

Better than a Big Mac!!!

By request I am FINALLY posting these pictures of the birthday cake I made for Shawn on his last birthday in May of 2009! If you know my husband you know he loves his Big Macs! I found the recipe on this fun website; .   Personally I think my cake turned out better! What do you think?


I think mine is a bit more realistic.

The Process

The whole process took me hours and hours...I am talking like 5 or more hours but it was alot of fun.
First you bake 2 round cakes and frost them.  Then you make up a batch of yummy rice crispy treats
and press them in a round cake pan. This is supposed to be the hamburger patty.  I was so proud how realistic it looked I had to take a picture of it!

I used food coloring to color the fondant and rolled it out with a rolling pin. The tomatoes were fun to make but the lettuce was really hard.  Your supposed to crinkle it to make it look like real lettuce! Not easy!

After hours and hours of work I got 2 thumbs up from Sami who said it looked awesome but
 couldn't be convinced to help me clean up..........

my DESTROYED kitchen so I freaked her out with my super scary (and messy) hands!

In the end I had one extremely happy husband who said it was the best birthday present he had ever recieved, and a cake that never got eaten because nobody wanted to mess it up!
