Peanut Butter Jelly time!

I desperately need to make a grocery trip run but since we head out tomorrow morning for Pittsburgh, I'm holding off on the grocery till we return. So I'm all out of breakfast food for myself. What's a girl to do when they have no more Kashi cereal? Why eat the kids Eggo Waffles of course! I thought I would be a fun and tasty twist on just plain boring waffles. Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jelly! Yummo such a yummy way to start the day.
Ooo I hear baby squealing and laughing from her to play with her before I need to do more cake stuff. Oh crap I have to pack today too! Oy!

Over the weekend, we purchased the Wii Active package! I'm so pumped to try it out! I plan on doing the 30 day challenge. But we head out to Pittsburgh on Tuesday for the BIG wedding! I can't wait to start it up when we get back on Saturday though. :)

Speaking of the BIG wedding..I've been working on the cake toppers this weekend...will take pictures for a sneak peek at part of the "wicked cool" topper. ;P

Thankful Thursday

A friend of mine lost her 6 year old daughter on Tuesday after getting her tonsils removed. I couldn't imagine waking up one day and not having my kids be there. So as cliche as this sounds, today I'm very thankful for my children. Thankful for every second I have with them.

I'm also thankful for:

My sister in law Erin....
My nephew Nils and his "Auntie Jess my chair!" and "Uncie Kell Do it!"...
Caramel Apple Nut Bread from Huber's farm smothered in their homemade apple butter...
The leaves that have started to fall....
E.L.F makeup that is so wonderfully cheap and pretty
Better on a Bagel...yummm....

I loved meeting my nephew last night finally! He's a sweet doll with an amazing vocabulary! I just love him to pieces and want to eat him up! I'll be posting pictures of this family vacation over the next couple of days. We have lots of things planned....sight seeing around Ft. Knox..Louisville Stoneware...the Zoo...The KY state fair...bourbon trail...Huber's Farm for berry picking...and all with 4 adults and 4 children. Action packed for sure!

Meeting the family

My mother in law, sister in law, and nephew come into town today. We're quite excited since this will be their first time meeting Ryleigh and will be our first time meeting our nephew.
BTW not everyone here in blogger world knows that I had my baby. Ryleigh will be 7 weeks on Sunday. She was born July 5th @ 7:17 am weighing in at 8lbs 12ozs. It was a very quick labor and delivery. Seriously if I had waited at home 20 more minutes, she would have been a home birth. The nurses delivered her because she came out before the doctor could get there from the oncall room. She's been such a joy to us. We are so in love with her. The kids especially. They can make her smile and giggle like no other. it's wonderful watching them all interact together.


Monday I'll be making some yummy cupcakes for my mother in law's birthday. So stay tuned...

All I need is a beach... go along with this tropical yumminess of cake.
Coconut Pineapple cake with pineapple filling

I have a wedding cake to do in a couple of weeks and this is one of the flavors for the 3 tiered cake. I needed to try out the new recipe to make sure it is good enough for the lovely bride. Which is why it has no frosting and the filling isn't actually in the cake since I was just messing around with flavors. This recipe gets 5 stars from me... definite keeper! I can't wait for this wedding cake!
