cake stand love

How adorable are these birds!!! I also love that the plate can be personalized. Serious love right there.

Now in my experience with cakes, I prefer cake stand that have flat "plates". How much fun would this be with a festive and bright cake?

Now if you're looking for something a little more glam and sophisticated, I'm in love with this one!

I want to do this to my pumpkins!! Metallic Glazed Pumpkins
Ok I've been trying to upload the picture into photobucket for 5 minutes now and it won't work. Sorry no picture but make sure and check out the link. It's still pretty cool!

This is going on my wishlist

I still have a few months before I start giving Ryleigh solids but I'm officially putting the Beaba Babycook on my wishlist. Anyone have this?
Talking my husband into buying it might be a hurdle but hey I'm saving him tons of money by breastfeeding and cloth diapering. So he can bite the bullet and buy this for me.

It's a winner ~ Puppy Chow!

I officially started my running schedule today. I look up to my husband when it comes to running. He's simply amazing. Check out a few highlights of his track career. As of March 2009, he's still the best! and of course the infamous under 4 run. (btw my husband's name is Kell.)

He started me out with 1 mile walk at a 3.0 pace. Then 1 mile run with 1st half at 4.0. Then 2nd half at 4.5. Once I finished that second mile I walked for a few minutes to cool down. Here's my proof.

I celebrated with Puppy Chow AKA Texas Snow.

My best friend Stephanie used to send us Texas Snow all the time and I figured it's about time I make some of my own. I enlisted the help of two of my sweeties.

Gathered our ingredients.

10 cups of Chex, either corn or rice
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of peanut butter
2 cups of semi sweet chips
4 cups of powdered sugar
1-2 cups of peanut M&M's (optional)

Combine butter, peanut butter, and chocolate in a saucepan.

Cook until completely melted and smooth.

Measure out your Chex.

Add chocolate mixture to Chex.

Combine well and add M&M's.

Next add powdered sugar. (I started with 2 cups but realized I really needed the full 4 cups)

Put a lid on your bowl and shake shake shake...shake your booty! hehe sorry

When well coated, chill for 1-2 hours. Then serve up with a ice cold glass of milk and enjoy!!

Oven is out

That's right my oven doesn't work. Yesterday morning I was going to bake some cinnamon rolls for breakfast before church and the stinking oven wouldn't heat up. Hopefully housing can get out here and fix it soon because I have lots of baked goodies planned for the next two weeks! So stay tuned. Today's goody however is something that doesn't reguire baking. Puppy Chow! I'll share pictures and recipe later on in the day.

Also thanks to the girls that shared their feedback last week. I've decided to keep the name the same. :)

new title...maybe

I'm thinking of changing the blog up a little bit. I rarely post about cakes anymore so now my blog title seems kind of pointless. I'd rather not start a new blog. I'm taking suggestions on blog titles. Anyone care to help me?
