Social Butterflies

JB was invited to a birthday party tonight. MC and I tagged along because they were watching a movie that we all wanted to see. Afterwards, JB left with his buddies to go to the birthday boy's' home for cake and ice cream. Meanwhile, Coco was visiting with our neighbors because we had a few prospective buyers touring our home. While Coco played with the neighbors dog and swam (fell into the pool), MC and I visited a local pizzeria and Dad was at happy hour with co-workers. What a crazy Friday afternoon!

Need cupcakes? DIY

This was one of the March posts that never made it.

After making a special trip to a local gourmet bakery for my birthday cupcakes, I was very disappointed! Despite the shop being all the rage, the cupcakes were mediocre at best. I shelled out $12 for four, average sized cupcakes. One of which, was topped with a red gummy candy. I vowed to never spend that much on gourmet cupcakes again.

These are treats that I made for a social with my hubby's co-workers. They're not gourmet, but they taste as good as if not better than the ones that I bought. Not to mention, they were a lot cheaper!

What's Happening

What's new in our camp?

**The grasshopper has met his match--the robin! This week JB is in "boot camp". I'm just tired of the attitude in general. As a result, he's lost all privileges until further notice.

**Earlier this week, we were pleasantly surprised to see our baby in utero sans a penis! We're having a girl! I bought my celebratory dress yesterday and it's beautiful.

**Our house is back on the market and after only 6 days, we've had two showings. Hopefully we'll get an offer very soon, so we can get this show on the road!

**Coco successfully made it through another week with no potty accidents. Perhaps our last newspaper brawl brought her to her senses.

**I'm in the process of my annual spring ritual of finalizing summer plans. Since this summer will likely have me setting up a new home and about to explode, while enduring 100+ temps, I've enrolled the boys in numerous day camps. I still have to register for three more and two swim sessions. But as it stands, almost every week has been assigned an activity (that I won't be responsible for leading). There was a time when I would feel guilty about this, but under the circumstances that time is NOT now!

That's what we've been up to. Let's see what I'd like to be up to. Hmm...crafting, taking a trip to Canton, going junking, Scrapbooking....oh, well maybe one day!
