Not much to say lately...Could be a good thing ☺
Firstly: Here is my prom dress:
Whenever I am feeling extra bummed I try to make a Love, Love, Love list. Try to grasp the positive. It keeps my head above water. Well the past two weeks were kind of crappy so to spare my sanity just humor me.
Artists you are obsessed with? A close friend is obesessed with Sarah Mclachlan. So in theory: Sarah is her Jim. (jim ♥)
A digression: I am slightly irritated that everytime I go to type/write her last name I have to yahoo the damn thing in order to get the spelling correct. Gah....
Back on topic-I was asked to do a few ATC's inspired by Sarah M. songs. I am not a fan of Sarah M. so after much thinking the following is what happened with this project :)
Do What You Have To Do

This week's theme is "Radio"
Top 5 songs you love to hear live
A little fun what if:
A Rando Mess...Thats me!
Also, Jim announced he is recording the infamous cover for the new album. Super stoked about this. Each album they do a cover and I am usually pretty amazed each time with how much I love the new sound. Curious what they pick and even curiouser (alice) to hear!! Yay for My Jim ♥
Top 5 albums that didn't live up to the hype
1. Keane-Perfect Symmetry-I love Keane but their last album is so different I can't listen to it. They lyrics are no longer deep, the music is too poppy and there is no connection between us. Not for me.
Big stuff in the cake world this week. I was asked to make some of my Famous Oreo Surprise cupcakes for a friend/colleague that is leaving my company on Friday.
Then I will be cutting white squares from fondant to make baby cards. Those will be stuck randomly throughout the top of the cake. SEE BELOW.
As the border around the top tier I will use alternating Red Hearts and Black Spades cut from fondant. I purchased a Wilton mini cookie cutter set of Card symbols several weeks ago for this reason.
For the bottom tier I will be using a rope border out of butter cream done in black icing. Then I will pipe random swirlies in red butter cream on the sides. On the top of the tier I will write "Merry Un-Birthday" in a crazy font.
Pretty excited to make this cake. It's a complete surprise as well. My Brudder knows I am making him a cake but he doesn't know the style and we both were raised on Alice in Wonderland so this cake will be a pretty big deal.
So with this said:
A few things:
To keep with this name game: Number two/b: The "Tyler" effect
Child is born. Received my announcement in the post: TYLER.
I get it, I get it... You wanted number 2 when you arrived but someone owned that number and you had to settle. Well now that someone got a new jobby job and it's available so you swoop in and get your fancy new number. Well that's just great. Yay for number 2!
BUT, I own all 46 stuff and official Red Sox gear is a little on the pricey side...........and I am a LIBRA. I need my life in balance and I will just die if I don't have the proper number to represent you on my shirt and/or jersey.
(good thing he didn't get traded huh??? Can you even imagine what my rant would be there??)
Okay, Look at this face. I think I can forgive you..... *siiiiiiiiggggghhhhhh*
In all seriousness I realize baseball is unpredictable with players and such but I can still be peeved about all my #46 gear. Just wanted to be dramatic. As my family and friends always say to me:
"You with the dramatics". ♥
I don't like to make waves. Again, Libra here. Peace keeper. People pleaser. Don't want to be an asshole for no good reason. So in light of this recent religious holiday...my question is to you, fellow bloggies, and this example I will give you can be played in a number of scenarios but for now I will use Easter. As you know, working with people, idle chit chat is always a factor. So after one hundred and forty: "How was your Easter?" questions later, I stated: "I don't celebrate Easter, but my WEEKEND was nice".
Looked like I just shot her in the chest. Wounding her. I mean, I just said I don't celebrate I didn't denounce her religion or something. Why so touchy folks? Especially if MY Un-Easter didn't even effect your Easter?
So back to my question:
Do you announce things like this?? Or just play along?
Sometimes I get sick of playing along!!
Number five/e: Tennis
Love to play it, love to sell hotdogs during a match for it, HATE to watch it. My hubs is obsessed with watching it. It's not boring. It's the yelling. Especially the women. Each time they hit the ball my blood pressure elevates. Back and forth...every three seconds I hear a yelp...
I have suggested watching it with the mute button applied. I fear I may develop hypertension if not.
