I had a super busy week, but a few special things happened along the way that made me extra thankful for friends and family. I have loved being part of the blogging community and feel like I have developed some real relationships with some of you. But one day I saw a comment on my blog from someone who said, “I know your husband. . .” I clicked on her name and found Erin, author of the blog “Losin’ It.” In the way of coincidence, she lives here, and her husband works at the same university that mine does. We connected through email, and decided it would be fun to meet for lunch. So on Wednesday, Erin and I met at Olive Garden and had wonderful conversation and food. Just so you know that I practice what I “preach” neither Erin nor I touched the bread! Thanks Erin for a great lunch!
After I came home from lunch with Erin, I had to make sugar cookies for our small group. Here they are! I only ate 2, 3 or 5. I don’t really remember. . .
And then, if making cookies wasn’t enough baking for the week, two of my son’s celebrated their birthdays. My second son turned 9 and my baby celebrated his 2nd birthday. So our came the baking equipment again, this time for two cakes. My nine year old wanted a Spiderman party, so the girls stuffed a spiderman costume with towels and perched him on a ladder decorated to look like a building. For the two year old’s party I kept it simple and we just decorated with balloons. Happy birthday guys!
In keeping with the tradition of my blog, I leave you with this little thought. Can you bake two cakes, 3 dozen cookies and a batch of brownies in one week and not gain weight? Yes you can! Any ideas on how? Diane
