cupcakes..... so many cupcakes

My ninas (god mothers) daughter is pregnat with a baby girl, so i am tasked with making 50 cupcakes. So Since this is a baby girl half will be strawberry cup cakes with cheese cake piped on top, the 2nd half is still debaitable. i am thinking vanilla and some cute baby faces or chocolate with a white fondute diaper looking top. I love messy cup cakes, but i think i will keep these clean and cute. Any ideas for the best possable baby shower cup cakes?...more

Making Christmas Gifts

So to make life simple i am doing family Christmas gifts this year. Since I have a large family and my husband is the oldest of eight kids (6 still live at home). So buying gifts for that many kids can get costly. So this simple idea is also easy to ship.  ...more

book list

I own a nook, since my husband said my books were taking up so much space. Well i am currently saving for a laptop to do school work on, but i was really looking forward to using the NOOK study on my nook, come to find out that it only works on laptops. not even tablets. This is annyong since the nook study is for e-textbooks and having my nook on my desk would be awesome vice having a laptop open, and i dont even have that at this point. So i went to look up how much my books for winter sesion will cost. This is one class mind you. and the required books come to just over $200. URG!!!...more

the meaning of a name

She seemed so hopeful and focused on God and wish her the best on her journey. This woman was another reminder of the things you wouldn't know when you look at someone. It was a view at a strong woman and mother and wife. She was the embodiment of why I picked my name. The many hats everyone fills....more
