Small Update you should know.

I'm still ALIVE, yes I am. 
I know I've not posted anything since Wednesday, I'm sorry. 
Summer if just getting the best of me, I guess. So wishing I was back in California right now. This is a picture from Yosemite. 
My grandma went with us. I miss her. She lives in California with my aunt, and cousins from my fathers side. They are pretty much the only family we have left in California.

I've also been spending a lot of time doing research for my upcoming ETSY shop. 

Yup, I'm taking the plunge, and opening up shop. Any guesses what I will be selling? I think it will be great seeing what you think I will be doing? A couple of you already know, so don't ruin it for the rest, by telling anyone, NOT yet that is. 

I really hate being gone, and not blogging, BUT I am also trying to change a few things about my blog altogether. I really NEED, more than anything to get a schedule going for real. 

I tried this before, BUT it didn't work to well, It was just too much. I need to go simple, and realistic with my goals. 

I also haven't been to the gym in several weeks, BUT have started TAE KWON DO, so I guess that counts, but now I really need to work my butt of, because I feel so silly being the only one in class who can't do 30 situps, lol. 

So my dears, for those of you who are missing me, I will be back really soon. I promise!! I am loving everything you have been lining up, you guys are amazing, so please keep it coming. I've also been lucky enough to come across some new AMAZING blogs the past couple days, and I'm so excited about that, oh and I've done a tad bit too much PINNING also. Just can't help it, that place is beyond addicting. 

So to recap, you can be on the look out for the following new labels, or categories I will be blogging about soon.

I am beyond excited, but so SCARED to start this venture. MAKING CAKES, is normal to me, I've been doing that my whole life, but this will kind of be MY little venture, and I'm scared nobody will like it, erghhh. I know that's bad, but I can't help it.
Menu Plan Mondays 
I used to menu plan a lot, and need to start again, there is no other way to get in shape and keep track of what I eat.
For real documenting my journey to be healthy. Being accountable for working out, and creating simple fitness goals we can all strive for. I'm not looking to be skinny, I want to be HEALTHY.
I love all things repurposed, and am always on the lookout for great ways to reuse something nobody wants, or to use up what would otherwise go in the trash. Now I actually want to start doing these projects. My junk piles are getting too big.
What I  Wore Wednesdays
I've done this a couple times, and both times got the sweetest compliments, and that made me feel good. Seriously at least ONCE a week I think I can GET DRESSED, and look nice. 
Home DIY
You wouldn't even believe the crazy list of things I need to do around my house, (even though we are on the lookout to possibly buy a new home YAY). Things need to get fixed, on the CHEAP, and with my two hands if possible. This should be fun.
Like seriously, I will still be blogging about all the yummy food, recipes, and desserts I eat, and make. Only hopefully I will also start taking better pictures of it (once I get a battery and charger for my fancy shmanzy camera).

Still going strong, I enjoy hosting my parties so much. I LOVE the support I get, and I am always finding new blogs because someone took the time to link up with me. I love that!!

OH and ONE more thing. 
DID you know that my blog is turning ONE on August 3rd?
Yup it is, and I am planning a HUGE party for all of you. Only it won't take place until sometime in SEPTEMBER. 

SOOOOOO if you have something you'd like to contribute to the celebration, please let me know. I will be so grateful for your help and support.

Well that's about it for now. Just wanted to say HI, I miss you all, and I'm off to the park, to grill something, and play with the kids.

My photo
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
