So, I'm officially married to an adult!! LOL :) Well, in age, anyways :) LOL j/k...King's turned 30 today!! :) He's taking it very well, btw...I was expecting a little drama today, but so far, none!! LOL :) That's a good thing...I can't say if I'll be any better in a couple of years...I can't believe I'm getting up there in the first place...how weird...

Anyways, we got up, Princess got up, too, and we sang "Happy Birthday" to him, and then we ate a very special breakfast of Cheerio's (actually, King had life, and Princess & I had Cheerios...that new yogurt kind...VERY good :) ) Anyways, not that you really wanted to know, but there it is...He let me go to the gym while he & Princess hung out :) I thought that was sweet, and by the time I got home, Princess was asleep...So, we just hung out, and, um, celebrated, and then started to get ready for this evening :) I think he's wanting to pick up the stove tonight from Sears!! YAY!! I would LOVE that!! :) Right now I'm waiting on my jeans to dry, and he & Princess went to run a couple of errands before dinner, so here we are :) Oh, we're going to Joe's Crab Shak, btw :) I LOVE Joe's, and I didn't influence his decision at all!! Honest!! :) He had said Grub Steak since this morning, so I was all geared up to go there, but then he switched it up, and now I'm trying not to salivate over shrimp!! LOL :) And, stuffed mushrooms...YUMMY...

Anyways, I get measured & weighed tomorrow before I workout...I can already tell in my waist & abs that I've lost inches...my jeans "fit" better, if you know what I mean...now, I'm not rushing out to buy the next size smaller or anything, because they're not falling off quite yet, but I'm VERY happy with this progress :) And, hopefully, at our next Women's meeting I'll contribute to the group's total weight loss for the night...last Monday nite they lost 13+ lbs, and they weren't really "on" a plan, just more concious of what they were eating, I think...So, great progress already!! :) I gained .8lb, BUT, I'm showing I'm down now, and I think I've gained some muscle...So, we'll see tomorrow, and then on Monday nite :)

I've been tanning the last couple of days, too :) I really like that :) I know all the horror stories & all the risks, but it's just something I enjoy, and it's GREAT just laying there taking a little nappy nap :) LOL I've only gone for about 5 min. each time so far, so tomorrow I'll probably bump it up to 7-10...we'll see...

Aren't I just really exciting?!?! LOL :)

Oh, we didn't end up meeting BrownsFan for dinner last night (the gal from High School), she had some stuff going on, so we just decided we'd try again next week :) So, Princess & I decided to go to Fazoli's & then Kohl's & Wal-Mart to find something for King's birthday...I really wish I could've gotten him something really big for his 30th, but we've got an air conditioner to save up for, so I just got him a couple of shirts (which he needed really badly, too). Oh, well, maybe next year ;)

I got another cake order...for the D Christian Center's grand opening/open house of their new Toddler & Infant room. This is a bigger order, but I'll have my own oven to bake with, and my own supplies to work with...I do envy Mom's "Notebook" (she broke all her course books & put the pages in page protectors & put 'em in a 3-ring binder...easy to see where I got the Teacher Geek Gene from!! LOL)...anyways, it's as handy as a pocket on a shirt, but I think I'll be able to muddle through these...she wants a marble cake, and a chocolate cake, so that's something different, too...I've never made those to decorate them with buttercream icing (they call it buttercream, but it should be called Crisco icing!! LOL Unless you use butter crisco or butter flavoring (yuck, it's not good w/ almond...don't ask!!LOL) there's no butter in it!! LOL) Anyways, it'll be something new, and I can make a little extra cash, and that doesn't hurt :) Oh, and I didn't get a chance to take a picture of this last cake, either, I totally forgot about it...

Well, I'd better go...I think this is a really long one, and I could keep chatting about nothing, so I'd better go :) I hope you all are doing well, and are having a great week!! :) Talk to ya later :)

Happy Birthday to your hubby! Must be the year...your hubby, my hubby, Mac-N-Cheese! What a year! I know what you mean about not affording a big one this year. I can't decide what I'm going to do for Hubby...this stuff just drives me crazy!
Congrats on another cake order. You MUST take a picture so we can see what you do!
YEAH on the losing weight! I'm so proud of you and Mac-N-Cheese...I must get started on this stuff!
Lots of Love!

Wow! What a great side business (to being a stay-at-home mommy which is a job too)! My mom made cakes and wedding/anniversary flowers when she was a SAHM, I have such wonderful memories of the house smelling like cake and always getting to lick the bowls...can I come over? Happy Birthday to the King! Hope you had a great meal. I'm jealous of the tanning, I love to tan (not to be brown but up here where it's winter 9 months of the year I always felt so much better getting the extra light) - wish I had time to do it again!
