Volvo Driving Soccer Mom..

It's been the craziest week. I have a ton of extra work this week plus I have to travel to our sister office on Friday to do some staff training classes. This just basically means I get to go and teach a bunch of ungratefuls how to properly execute their job, give them the easiest test ever created (to which they can use their NOTES to answer) and then watch them bitch and complain the entire session about how they don't think they "should have to do this"


Oh boy, oh boy, I simply can not wait!!!! To top this all off this office is located in an extremely shady area of town. Like the part of town where they have a security guard escort you to your vehicle. Yumm. Again, can't wait.

Aside from this: Was super surprised to have a visit from the super cool Mother of The Mrs.
Mrs. Mom is the most amazing sewing artist. I love, love, love her work. We had a little deal worked out where I would do some baking magic for her in exchange for her amazing quilted bags that she creates.
Amber and I carefully selected our fabrics and were amazed to see the end result.
Ambers:





Mine with zip bags included:








Inside of mine:




PLEASE NOTE: The large pocket for my one true love; my ipod.
I am also pretty excited about New Moon release. I have promised the kids at Hubs school to make a Cullen Cake for the occasion. I have printed some stuff out. I am going to attempt to pipe the Cullen Crest on the face of an 8 X 3 round. It's a lot of working with black and white so I don't know how this is going to pan out. I want to try it out tonight as the cake is due Friday.
Tonight I have made these amazing treats for the soccer boys at Hubs school. I'm a soccer ma with no kids. How did this work out??
The treat: mini brownie bites with a Reeses Cup in the middle. They go over almost as well as my Oreo cakes. I will post the recipe if anyone is interested.
ps.
Top prize to the first person to identify what 90's band had a song titled: Volvo Driving Soccer Mom. No cheating bitches..

oh my god those turned out fantastic! I could never get the pics to load of the fabric so I was clueless when my mom was explaining it to me.

Everclear. Great video. We had nothing to do with it.

You think your wrist hurts now? See how it feels if you don't post that brownie Reese's recipe ASAP. I'll find a way to send you virtual carpal tunnel if you don't. I need that recipe to feed my Reese's addiction!!!!

GM once said "they (music people) don't write songs about Volvo's", at a press conference. We, at our press conference, listed all the volvo songs out there, including that one. Seems some GM execs had seen it as well, they had big smiles on their faces.
