I'm grateful that she seems better because this is like the worst week ever for her (or I) to be sick. It's a busy week at work, and I also have a "project" that I've been been busy working on. A surprise project....
Every time my husband leaves for work on a conference (where I have a good couple days to "work") I inevitably do something major to the house. I disguise unplanned purchases (completely decided upon by myself) as surprises for him. He's fairly easy going that way, so lucky for me I continue to get away with it.
Sometimes the projects are large, sometimes they are small. One time I moved my daughter and I out of the house for a couple days while I had the entire house painted. That was a real fun one! This one won't be quite as extreme - but has still taken me some time to prepare. I hope he likes it. And if he doesn't - at least I will! That's the beauty - You don't need to confer or agree on anything! ;) In any case, this is why I have been busy.
I'll share the details with you later, and if I am organized enough, maybe even provide some before and afters.
Over this past weekend my sisters and I got together to make some cake pops. We wanted to make some Halloween ones, and try some regular ones. Being the overambitious individual that I am, for our first try, I suggested four types of cake pops. By the end, we were all exhausted and had been able to do some experimentation for next go round. One day soon I will share that with you (likely when we plan our next cake pop date) but for now, I'll just post some photos.
I should also note that http://www.bakerella.com/ has some great ideas on her website, and recipes for cake pops.
The first round...little tip: smaller is better in this case ;)
"is that an upside down colander"? you ask...."why yes it is".
Pumpkins weren't a huge success but we were quite happy with our little ghosts!
