Come on people. The "King of Pop" died? Hello? He died years ago. The real Michael Jackson has been dead for years. The person who died yesterday was just a ghost of the legend. A bleached and surgically altered ghost with a questionable persona. I am actually holding my tongue right now from what I would like to blurt out, but I can't afford to be sued by people who make my entire years income in an hour. Yes, MJ has made some rockin music. He's also made a mess of his face, held a baby over a balcony, had one too many sleep-overs with children, and made some very creepy statements in his time. So there. Just let it be known that the entire nation is not in mourning. I'm gonna stop right there.
*am I the only one thinking like this? or am I the only one willing to admit to thinking like this? anyone else out there?

Regardless, I'm starting to feel a little "vanilla" in my wardrobe lately anyway. I used to be quite the fearless dresser. I could rock any look I chose to throw on. Why am I not as brave as before? The picture above reminds me of my former self. I used to rock very similar outfits on the regular. Now, for some stupid reason, I feel like I'm too old, or out of shape, or tired looking. I really need to get back in touch with my former fashionista. I need to get more sleep and work out. I need to find SOME ROCKIN' JEANS!!!!!!!!!!! Any tips, my dolls?

Last week was hell. I am not even going to go into the details. Its a lot of information, its personal, and its one of those things that you could easily wish you wouldn't have opened your big mouth about later on down the road. Lets just say that life with the Mr. has been trying and that I could have ended up a Ms. instead of my current Mrs. All of which has led to an upset stomach and some emotions that I would rather not be experiencing. So, yes, I am being slack on the blogging.
Good news is this: things are okey right now. I have tons of new pictures to share with you. I just gotta get them to the computer. More complicated than you would think, because we do not have internet connection at home. On another odd note, my mom has another wedding cake to do for this weekend and my dad decided to tear out and remodel the kitchen. He could have done this in January, but instead, he started last week. Nice, huh?

Done reading? Yeah. Whatcha think about that crap? I'm pretty livid, myself. All I have to say is that its a good thing I wasn't kickin it back in 55. Since when has there ever been a man worthy of this treatment?! Jesus was the last one I heard about. Hasn't been another one since. Does this make anyone else's blood boil? Maybe I'm just in the wrong mood to find this funny.
Immense personal satisfaction, my hind end.

My mom has made cakes as long as I can remember. It's never been a business, just something she does (and is amazingly talented at). I picked it up from her and have done a few wedding cakes of my own design. Mom used to have an album full of all the cakes she has made. Some idiot "borrowed" it and now its lost forever. We do have some pics I could share, however. They aren't on digital, so I'll have to scan them to the computer. When you make cakes in a small town like ours, word gets around. Mom used to stay covered up in cakes when I was little. She quit doing them for the public, though, when she started getting major headaches from the powdered sugar. So now she does cakes for family and close friends and I take on a wedding cake every now and then. Since I have a full time job, she does the baking for me. We make a pretty good team and, truthfully, have thought about starting a catering business for small events. But it takes money to make money and a catering business is a ton of work. So for now, its just a cake here and there.
Thanks for asking. Have a fabulous weekend.
* the pic is from my beach trip. I know it has nothing to do with cake. :)

I have seen several of these orbit rings around and been quite intrigued by them. However, this particular design by Maria Gotijoyas is my fave. I love the dark band and how the bright silver spinner just shines against it. I can just imagine wearing this ring and unconsciously spinning it while chatting over dinner. What a sleek little distraction.
