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!!

    Happy Birthday Audrey !!!! From one Birthday gal to another. We share the same birth date. So far I lost one hour in my day and were having a Blizzard here in Nebraska. Only about 4 inches of snow so far. Lots of Blowing snow.
Your a great mom to still enjoy her day and think of her with the cupcakes. And to share them with all her crew members.

    emoticon Audrey!!! You are both emoticon emoticon emoticon !!! Thanks for sharing!!!

I love your way of seeing the bright side of things: one bathroom house = less cleaning to do. emoticon

Also love how you use time efficiently! Love the pancake pen too, I've never seen that before!

Enjoy your time with your teenager! Mine just drove herself to school yesterday for the first time to take SAT. She got her license on Thursday. It feels so strange to know that I don't need to drop her off or pick her up.

    Give Audrey a birthday hug from me. She is definitely awesome, just like her mom!
emoticon emoticon

You may not know it, but you have a cool kitchen. First off, you actually have enough room in it to hoop. Mine is smaller. Love the burner-free oven top (on my wish list). Didn't even know they made a 3-tier oven. Cool! And the little TV hanging from your cabinet. All the comforts; no more excuses to spend time in that kitchen cooking.

    Happy Birthday Aubrey, you are so lucky to have such an awesome mom. Shelli, I have the cupcake thing under control but the hooping is a mystery. You have inspired me and I have been working at it for a week but I am still struggling to keep it going on my torso for more than 30 seconds. emoticon

Wonder Woman, your skills don't surprise me anymore but the fact that you can safely hoop so well and use all those moves in your kitchen certainly does! Love the music and the moves! It was a beautiful day yesterday. After several hours bent over clearing flower beds and painting a bench. I walked Sugar and then hooped in the backyard. Nothing fancy, but I've found hooping really feels good on my back after gardening. Spring is here! emoticon

P.S. My own daughter, being health and safety conscious since they had a class about it at college, reprimands you for messing about with your hoop so close to a hot oven!
Tsk tsk tsk! *Wagged Finger of Disapproval!*

    Yet another brilliant vlog, Shelli!

And it's nice to see what your kitchen's like, listen to some of your favourite music, discover that you own an implement called a 'pancake pen' (I'd no idea such a thing existed!) and to realise just how accomplished you have become at hooping!

In the UK, today is Mother's Day - you are certainly being a great mother with all that cupcake baking. :-)

    Hope Audrey had an amazing birthday. I so love the fact that you have guided her to see and know just how awesome she really is! So many of us bought into the lies and didn't come into that realization til we were much older. What a waste of awesome that is! Seriously, just think how much more we could have done with our lives if we had realized that secret power of awesome at her age.

Thanks for another ray of sunshine! I sure love your blogs.
