Ok, we have our first week of school under our belts and I feel like I’m dying! Anyone else with me on this? Schools in Texas start at 7:30am. 7:30 in the morning! Which means after getting the kids up (including my husband), getting them ready for school, breakfast, sunscreen and out the door… I’m officially exhausted by 8am. I need a nap people! But nope, there’s no daytime tv and bon boys for this mom. There’s laundry, errands, house cleaning, dinner prep, lunch prep, snack prep and maybe I get to sit down to lunch for myself. Then…. the afternoon starts… pick up for 2 kids, dance lessons, taekwondo, swim…so by the time dinner comes around I’m dead. Like seriously lay on the couch, don’t move me… dead. And this is only the first week! I’m not sure If I’m going to survive the future dance rehearsals, dance recitals, belt tests, swim tests, regular school tests!! Can I get a vacation… STAT please!Read More

So if you ever wondered… and aren’t one of the readers who skips all this stuff to get to the Amazing Raspberry Swirled Angel Food Cake recipe below… then today’s your lucky day!!Read More

As for me… not so much….I’m not a big camper… actually I’ve only gone camping once in my life and girls, it’s not for me. Bugs, dirt, no air conditioning!? nah….But I do enjoy all the ideas of camping! Sitting out under the stars, breathing in the fresh air, and cooking ‘round a campfire. So when summer rolls around, I’m always in the mood for s’mores… and whats the best part of a s’more!? Toasted Marshmallows! Which incidentally is the easiest way to decorate a cake! Win win people!
