Where do I even start?
1st off and foremost! Happy Freaking New Year ya'll! 2013 is going to be sweet and im extremely ,and overly optimistic in its comings!
I have been wicked busy! Working two jobs now-oh yeah..really... I have a new car....A new outlook on life...
Have you seen the movie "The Secret"? It is a documentary and well..I was told you must be VERY open to it and just take it in..so,I did..lets just say..LIFE CHANGING! ...REALLY..no joke.
I started a jar of good things of 2013. It wasn't my idea, it was someones and if I remembered who's blog it was I would be giving them the credit-or where they got it from-So sorry whom ever's idea that was!!!
I purchased a colorful stack of sticky notes to make the jar wicked adorable.
The Jar was purchased from Target in December. One of those Limited Edition thingers.
|I made 15-20 Mini Bunt and loaf breads- Spiced Banana and Applesauce cake for homemade gift baskets. They were really fun to package.|
|I made for the first time-candied citrus peels of Lemon,Orange and Pink grapefruit peels..talk about heavenly! I used ultra fine sugar to roll them in which,I think was better than granulated sugar.|
|All I wanted for Christmas and my Birthday this year was a pair of winter boots. I got these Sorel Boots-Joan of the Arctic on a big discount at my part time job. And they got to see snow before 2012 was over in Goldendale,Washington!|
|I adopted 3 elderly ladies to be a Santa to a Senior sponsored by Home Instead. I couldn't find a Moo Moo so I could only buy for 2 of the 3 but giving something back made me feel all warm inside.|
|We bought our first REAL Christmas Tree since being together. It was our first actual tree that didn't smell like fake pine. It was little about 4 feet tall. By New Years day the house bunny had eaten it.|
|My Favorite Homemade Gift I made. Lemon vanilla Pear Jam..This stuff is heavenly! I will most deff. be making it again!|
|I taught my husband to somewhat drive-white knuckled at the wheel and all. Up in eastern Washington where my fam. all lives. It was really entertaining. He had never had a permit or a license. So, this was a big moment for the both of us.|
|Our new car in the snow on The Dalles Moutain Road (In Washington) My brother and I headed to our families for Christmas on Christmas Eve.|
|The first jam I made for homemade gifts for Christmas 2012! Cranberry Pear|
I am thankful for the life experiences I have had so now, I know what NOT to do this year!
Now onto 2013!!!!!!!!!!!
So, for my Birthday..I really wanted a Purple Pig cake-Why Purple Pig? because when I was VERY little my father brought home-what I remember to be a purple pig cake from baskin robins-or maybe it wasnt but,for some reason Baskin Robins is in my brain. It was the cutest and neatest thing I have ever seen. So, for my 26th that is the cake I want to relive. My Husmabiest and my bestest girl (Aubrey) ordered me a cake from Baskin Robins. A white Bunny cake with Oreo cookie ice cream and white birthday cake. It was too adorable. So this morning when A (my pet name for her ;-) showed up- because she was "just coming over to hang out" -psh can't fool me!- My husband told me she "forgot to put on a shirt under her jacket today and was getting dressed"..yeah..right really? that is the most colorful story you can come up with dude? could have been "She just got done beating up some Ninja that tried attacking her in the parking lot of this nummy Ice Cream shop and she had to take her own shirt off and beat him with a boulder in it-realy sling like- and then wrap it around his head so he was blind and then he cussed in this different language as he ran around in circles all Anime like because he couldn't figure out how to get the shirt off" ..then I had to go to the Kitchen and there the cake was-too cute- 8 candles- 2 and 6- get it 26? So,I got to blow my candles out.
Good birthday eve!
