What a day!

I knew today would be busy because I had two cakes to do and also had to go grocery shopping but I had no idea how difficult it would be. My boys are pretty independent most of the time. They are good at entertaining themselves when I am busy. But today they were both sick and needy so it made getting anything done quite a chore. It pretty much took me the entire day to make two cakes! And now I'm just exhausted! That being said, I'm going to bed! Night, all. (And here's a pic of the cake I did today for my friend Jenny.)

Some downtime.

I know I've said this before but I just love it when the boys are all in bed and I can take a deep breath and relax by myself for a moment. It's always crazy at my house. It's stressful trying to make it all work but I manage to keep this house in order. I think I'm stressing a little about this cake business, too. I just really want to be successful and I'm putting a lot of pressure on myself. I just need to relax and take things as they come. Well, that said, ready to see a couple more cakes? Enjoy!
The picture is really bad but this "slice of cake" cake was for a friend's wife (my first paid order!) and he said that he wished he would've had business cards to give out because the cake was all anyone could talk about! That's a good sign, right?!

Orders are pouring in and a new cake.

I think I'm destined to do wedding cakes someday because although I love doing fun creative birthday cakes, I really love making the pretty cakes. This one is not a wedding cake but is simple and classy. One of my favorites thus far. My cake decorating business is really starting to take off. I've already got FIVE cake orders this month! Hopefully, I can keep up the momentum. I'm really glad that I've decided to go for it. Wish me luck!

Screeeech! %^%#^%Crash!$*&#@

So, I'm minding my own business, driving along on my way to my cake decorating class last night and this girl decides to ignore her stop sign and continue right into my path! Ugh! What was she thinking?! Anyway, to make a long story short, I crashed right into her and when the police came, they issued her a citation for "failure to yield." Her insurance company has already called and are getting everything squared away. We are picking up a rental this afternoon. I'm just so annoyed! You should be able to trust that people are going to stop at stop signs, right?! Well, at least I'm okay and neither of us were injured. I guess it could've been worse. Anyway, here's a pic of the truck damage. Not too bad. But they had to tow it because the bumper was sitting on top of the front wheel.

It's been a busy few days.

Halloween brought us a lot of fun this year. We are partied out! We went to 2 Halloween parties, then went trick-or-treating and finally had a Halloween/birthday party last night at my sister-in-law's house. I'm ready to put away all the Halloween things and start getting ready for Thanksgiving. Here are a few pictures of our Halloween fun!
