I'm BACK!!!!!!! Latest work done by me...

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

>So glad I am back with you all! I really missed everyone! I felt disconnected and just...blah... Two weeks was a long time my friends... but I feel refreshed and stronger this time.


So... My first wedding cake for this year is less than 2 weeks away (3/28) I started on the chocolate seashells...and I ate some! I couldn't resist myself! They were delicious and so so pretty....I'm getting nervous/excited! Man...time flies!

Here are some cookies I did this past weekend, one for my bf bridal shower (4/18 wedding, not the bridezilla friend lol that's 4/25) and the other one I gave to my mom.

*******oh! I might be having an extra trip this year! My hubby like you know is a music teacher and band director (drum line). We'll he has been invited to participate with another's school's marching band across the border for a trip to Puebla Mexico. He will go as their drum line director of course and they will be staying there for 4 days! And of course I am invited as well ( we know the band director ;)). Puebla is a historic place, they say its beautiful, and so rich in culture. This is where the 5 de mayo battle was fought, btw. Anyway... I think I am going. This are once in a life time opportunity! I love traveling!!! This trip is in May... I'm so excited... I have to take advantage of this...once I get pregnant and have my 2nd child, well it will be to hard too travel money-wise and all.


ok ok.. here are the pics!

COOKIE BOUQUET!!!!

Saturday, March 07, 2009

This is my first official cookie bouquet! I'm so happy of how it turned out. I keep looking at it and I'm thinking.. "I didn't make this, did I?" emoticon

I know my uncle will really love this. The day of my bday party I made some cupcakes and he insisted they were from a bakery! They say they were really good and he also didn't think I made them because he had no idea they sold cupcake liners at grocery stores! lol.

Anyway, I think he will love these cookies! They are so good! Vanilla Sugar cookies with Marshmallow fondant and royal icing ! emoticon

I only baked the ones needed (13) for the bouquet with 2 extras. I ate one, and son ate another one.

*****Don't worry Ana! I made lots of cookie dough and I'll make some fresh ones for your during the week when I do the ones for my friend's bridal shower!

Here are some pics!

p90x Week 9 update

Friday, March 06, 2009

I'm at the end of week 9 of the P90X workout... only 4 more weeks. The first month was great, the second month I kind of slacked off a bit. I was tired, busy and I wasn't "bringing it" hard enough. This month started differently though.

I know I will not get the results I want if I just kind of lift the weights, and if I kind of try to do regular pushups. Nope, I really have to bring it. So that is what I have been doing the last couple of weeks.

I plan on giving p90x another 2 rounds after this one, so 7 months more of p90x then we'll start baby making emoticon.

Here are week 9 pics! (taken today!)
