Cupcakes and Hula Hoops


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, March 10, 2013


Today (March 10th) is Audrey's 14th birthday. One of my SparkBuddies pointed out that it's also the official International Day of Awesomeness. I had no idea. Audrey assures me this is NOT a coincidence. I think she's right. Check out the sign she has posted on her bedroom door:

Caution: High Amounts of Awesome

Has this kid figured out her Secret Power of Awesome, or what??

She happens to be very busy, working backstage at her school musical on her bday. So I spent the afternoon baking tiny cupcakes for her to take to the cast/crew. It was too nice a day not to hula hoop, but I was trapped inside. What's a mom to do? Kitchen hoop, of course. Thought I'd set up a camera and let it roll a bit. Just because. Why not?


Audrey in her extra awesome jammies she got for her bday :)

Now, go celebrate the International Day of Awesomeness!!

    Audrey must be right because I share the same birthday (March 10th) and I'd have to say that I can be pretty Awesome at times, also. You are the bestest Mom in the world to make 100+ mini cupcakes for her birthday celebration!! Love to watch you hoopin' while you work!

    Does Audrey by any chance like anime, like Japanese culture, or study Japanese? Because those cute pajamas are Japanese pajamas and I know this because I like Japanese culture, study Japanese, and yes watch Japanese animation :-P Hehehe.

    A video?! I was hoping. I just love having a virtual visit. It is sage wisdom to bake and evacuate.
Great footage! You're gonna be snagged by You Tube to do some of those University of You Tube videos.

    Believe it or not, the next day (March 11) is Douglas Adams's 61st birthday (The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy). So, in honor of that, I would say that qualifies you as a really hoopy frood who knows not only where her towel is, but her kitchen cabinets, too! And because you have such incredible hula hooping skills, by royal decree Audrey has hereby been given the official title of Princess Audrey of Awesomeness! Happy Birthday!

Wow, you have got the moves with the hula hoop! Do you give lessons?
Loved the Alabama Shakes song - I listen to them nearly every week. Wish they had won best new artist at the Grammies, (but they are in my heart)!
