Excited and a bit frustrated.. lol

Thursday, February 05, 2009

Like I mentioned before, I am doing the wedding cakes for 3 of my friends that are getting married soon. We'll I am thrilled to do them for them. But there is one particular friend that changes her design every week. emoticon I think I have everything ready all my plans and stuff and it turns out she has another design.

She had confirmed one which is beautiful, simple and elegant. She said it was THE one and she wont look anymore. So I deleted all the other possibilities she had sent me before. Today she tells me she changed her mind, and that she changed the flowers for her reception, therefore wants another cake she had showed me before.

So I told her I deleted the pics from my computer, so did she! I love her, I am her daughter's godmother, but man...she can't make up her mind. It's her special day and I understand that. I want her to have the best day ever, but she needs to understand a wedding cake for 200+ guests takes alot of planing, work, and definitely money!

Man I hope she makes up her mind soon, and that she find the design she wants and deleted. Sorry just venting. I hope she doesn't turn into a bridezilla. lol.

    LOL sorry I know it isn't really funny....my wedding cake was made by a friend as a gift and I didn't even know what it was going to look like. You really are a great friend for making cakes for your friends. weddings are sooo fun. I would love to see you post pics of the cakes when you are finished with them. That would be so neat to see them and see your handy work!!!

    At some point, she will have to make up her mind and then that'll be it!!! If she were having a regular bakery do this for her, would they be this obliging? Probably not! I hope she decides soon, for your sake!

So excited!

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

So, I have 3 weddings I'm attending this year, all in a month's time! Three of my really good friends are getting married, on on March 28th, April 18th, and April 25th! I'm so excited because all of them will receive their wedding cake from me as their wedding present.

I just made the hotel reservations for the wedding in March. It's going to be in Rocky Point, Sonora Mexico. I'm so excited! It's been a while since I've been to the beach. I'm excited because I have hopes of wearing a bikini. But I will be more than happy to wear shorts.

Okay....so lunch didn't go very well. I had cereal, Honey Smacks, 2 cups worth w/ 2 cups non fat milk. I know its not good for me, but not as bad as it could've been right?

Off to do my Back & Biceps workout!!! I am so sore today! I'm glad tomorrow is Yoga day. I get to stretch and forget the soreness.
** I added a pic of Rocky pOint!
Have a great evening everyone!

no excuses today.

Tuesday, February 03, 2009

yesterday was very tiring but I am grateful I made it through the day. My son was still sick but in the afternoon he seemed to be feeling better. He started playing around with daddy and laughing so that made me feel much better.

He is still sleeping with us though. I guess he feels sick and wants to be close to us. He did get up a few times but he only asked for water. So that is good. I took him to daycare this morning and he was happy to be there. He missed his friends emoticon.

I looked at him yesterday and it clicked. I am a mother. It was the weirdest thing. I know I am a mother of course, but it had not really clicked in. I am 24 years old. I got married at 20 and got pregnant at 21. I was in complete shock. I remember crying because I knew I wasn't ready.

I see my son now, who is not a baby anymore, he's 2 yrs 4 months old, he can talk, jump, sing, run, and can make you smile with the simplest gesture. I just realize that what I was more afraid of has changed my life. (yes, I was afraid of kids. I initially said I didn't want to have children, then I said I would try at 30 lol). He is the love of my life, he makes my day brighter no matter what.

I think we might try for another one in the fall. I really hope I am at my goal weight then so I don't have to worry too much of my pregnancy weight. And this time I am taking care of what I eat. With my son I was just a crazy-pizza-craving-mom-to-be.

Here he is with mommy a week ago at my bday party. His name is Sahid (like Sahid from the show LOST, but its spelled differently, lol ) I know...he looks alot like daddy, but I do see my eyes there and definitely his character is mine lol!

    Marcia,

Your son is so beautiful!!! I am sure you are a wonderful mother, I don't think that we are ever ready to be parents. I was 28 when my first daughter was born and I think I am still not ready, LOL. And I now have two:) God is good and helps you be strong!! I am so glad he is feeling better!

    That is such a gorgeous picture and your son is adorable! I'm glad he was well enough to get back to the regular schedule!

Once you have children it is truly hard to imagine life without them, isn't it?

  So cute! And I am totally jealous. My hubby and I were going to try this fall, but I think we have decided against that since I have been so stressed out and busy lately. Good luck!

Sleepy Monday....

Monday, February 02, 2009

I had all my batteries charged up last night when I wrote my blog. Then headed for bed and my son wanted to sleep with me. We get in bed and he starts coughing and coughing... And the craziness started. He was so sick last night. We gave him his cough medication and that gave us a few hours of sleep but he was up again. Poor little guy, he was so happy all day running around I really don't know where he all of a sudden got it from.

Then he wanted to sleep in his room. So hubby took him to his room and he took the couch...Hours later, he was with me in my bed, and hubby alot in his bedroom. lol. He woke up with a fever but seems to be doing better. My hubby had to take the day off to take care of him while I worked.

The weather has been so nice and it sucks he's now sick. I just hope he feels better for lunch. I'll be making spaghetti for him (his favorite).

I'm so tired. I really hate mondays.

A new month, a new opportunity!

Monday, February 02, 2009

So I had a crazy weekend and I felt a bit bad because I couldn't log in to SP. I had a great time this weekend. I visited my sister and we planned my niece's quinceanera party (sweet 15th). I'll be doing the cake! emoticon

I can't believe how fast a new month has gone by. February for me is a busy month, lots of family birthdays and lots of events going on. I want to make this month to be an opportunity for me to do my best. I did really good with my workouts during January, but there were some slips. I want to make february a great month. I want to take extra care of my hubby and son. I want them to know how much I love them and how much I want them to be happy.

And I want to lose 5 lbs! I've been on a plateau for a while now, even though it was very likely with the program I'm following, p90x. Hopefully this month gets better, I should start seeing the results.

Tomorrow is monday. I have to get up at 5 am and get part of my workout done. I'm excited, I am thrilled but mostly tired. And I still have 2 baskets full of laundry to put away. See you all tomorrow spakers!
