Well it's been a busy week in general, just not for the trying new things though...lol. I did manage to try 2 new things. First of all the blue velvet cake for the gender reveal...not too sweet and not too dyed flavored as a red velvet cake. Not something though that I would really eat alot...which is a good thing...lol. I then tried a new recipe...sausage pancake muffins. I loved them...and was glad i only took out the serving size and froze the rest...lol. Not something I could eat everyday, but nice for a once in a while treat :) here is the recipe:
That's it for this week :)

Well it's been an exciting weekend. I found out on Friday the gender of my next grandchild. After work I went home and baked the appropriate color of cake. Son was home and this was a top secret mission, so just going home to bake it was no simple task. But somehow I managed without ds seeing. Had to get up super early to decorate said cake. Here is a picture of this finished cake:
And pic below of said appropriate color...
Yep...baby #3 for them...grandbaby #4 for me is going to be a boy!!!
So Saturday was spent getting the gender reveal party together, then the party, then the cleaning up...needless to say i was one tired puppy...thankfully i had gone to the gym before the party started. Sunday was spent cleaning my own home and getting ready for the week...which i don't think i can ever get to prepared for...lol.

Well last week I didn't post my blog for the previous weeks blessings...though don't get me wrong...it was a week full of blessings....and trials...and more blessings. Which brings us to the current week...and the blessings and trials and yes, more blessings still abound. Here is a highlight of my blessings for the week.
Thursday-Son out of hospital, and though I cannot say I agree with the doctors, he is home and seems to be doing better.
Friday-The local festival that kids and i have been attending for 15+ years started, and as all the years past, we were all there (along with all the additions to the family) to see the fireworks
Saturday-Most of the family got to meet at the festival. Watching the next generation ride the rides, play the games and eat the foods that are normally off limits except for this 1 time was such an awesome time. And watching their little faces as we watched the parade :)
Sunday-Back to the gym for the first time since my ds's suicide attempt. Feels good to be back to a somewhat normal. Also made it to church...yeah!!!
Monday-Attended a funeral for a church friend. Though she will be missed here on earth, I know we will see each other again.
Tuesday-Had the privilege of meeting a manager from another location for my gym. My manager bragged to him how good my cooking, especially the pasta salad, was...so since my managers get spoiled rotten often, I got to spoil this one a little :)
Wednesday-dd1 and her g/f invited me over for dinner. Also dd2 and kids came with me. It was nice to spend the evening with both my girls and all 3 of my grandbabies :)
I'll be honest, there are many things I left out due to time...but just what I could tell... you can tell it's been a very blessed week.
