Just a southern gal from Georgia who has a real problem with baking. And by problem I mean, I can't help myself! :D I am married to the love of my life, he puts up with me so well! I am mother to the most adorable, yet tough little boy. And mother to a most beautiful full of attitude, little girl. I can't forget about our 4-legged family members! Our terrier Lucy, Our Great Dane Milo, our mutty mutt Ellie and our cats Abbey and Sammy! I LOVE to bake and I am trying to start up my own cupcakery. I love vintage anything! My blog started out as a blog for my cupcakes, now it has turned into an everyday into the life of "ME" blog. Life is not perfect and wonderful all the time, you will hear me gripe, bahahaha, it isn't all cupcakes. Just a heads up per say. :D Hope your reading experience is enjoyable! And please be sure to comment, follow, and grab my button!
Here are a couple of photos from some Oreo balls I made earlier today. The white chocolate was not working quite right. But I do love the little swan atop one of the very very few white Oreo balls. Made 2 batches this time! I also made some homemade caramels, waiting for them to firm so I can cut and wrap.
These Oreo balls were made during our very loud and scary thunderstorm warning! It kept my mind off of the bad weather, I tend to get very anxious with bad weather.
Went to Sam's earlier today and they had a gourmet popcorn sampling booth. The popcorn is called "Popcornopolis" and it has been featured on Food Network. They had 5 flavors, Kettle Corn, Caramel, Cheese, Zebra, and Cinnamon Toast. I bought the Zebra, Cinnamon Toast and Cheddar. The zebra is amazing! It is caramel corn with milk and White chocolate drizzled over it! Wonderful! I purchased the cinnamon toast as well, and it is also fantastic! The cheddar is just a classic favorite of mine and I just couldn't resist. Besides, this popcorn is gluten free and MSG free, and just scrumptious. I would highly advise you go and get you some! They come in a large cone shaped bag and you get to choose 3 flavors for $11.00. I know it sounds like a lot for popcorn, but if you like popcorn like I do, it is worth it! YUM.
Ok, so today I was minding my own business, doing my own thing, when........ SMASH!!! I hit a man who took a left hand turn in front of me! We hit so hard it was so loud. The impact made us all fly forward and the kids flew forward from their car seats. Instantly panicked because I was waiting for the air bag to pop out and smash my face. I am so short that I have to sit super close to the steering wheel, and I was dreading that bag.
It is so funny how it happened so fast, yet felt like it was in slow-mo. Odd, I know. Well I got out of the car to inspect and literally almost hit the ground. My legs were shaking so bad I could hardly stand and speak to the man. Of course, he knew it was his fault, because he said he did not want to pay the deductible on his insurance. So, I knew it wasn't my fault. The man did not want to wait for the police and he was in a hurry.
Well he better be glad that he was super nice and worried, or else I would have tore him a new one! I was so livid! What the heck were you thinking?! Don't you know that what you did was extremely dangerous, and if I had been going ANY faster it could have been horrible!!! Check on myself and my kids all you would like, I am still pissed at you. Luckily, my car did not sustain any damage, his had a dent in the front bumper, but that was it.
After that I took the kids to McD's for lunch and ice cream, and of course they were good, I was still so shaky and anxious. UGH. I loathe bad situations. Especially ones that could injure my children! I just really wanted to vent. Sweet ladybug fell right to sleep when we left the accident site, sweet girl. Funny thing is, I had just hung up with my hubby, who decided to argue with me over some popcorn, and when I called him to let him know, how silly do you think he felt for arguing with me over popcorn when something bad almost happened to us? Yeah, sweet talking and apologetic.
Popcorn didn't seem so important then did it honey? HA. Next time you better pick your battles. :D
Today I was going to get my butt in that kitchen and tinker with some new recipes. Instead, my Aunt Foo-Foo and my cousin Amy came over. They brought my kiddos some adorable things back from Disney World and Amy stayed and played with us. We had a blast! I forgot how fun my cousin can be and how great she is with my kids. They love her so much! Sweet little 'B' told her "if they were the same age, they would get married". teeheehee!
Sorry buddy, your family and that would be gross! LOL. As I am drafting this post my kids are currently stuffing every single animal, or trying to, in the entertainment center for fun. Don't you just love little ones?! :D They are great, most of the time, and other times you just want to ring their little necks! I am in need of a stay at home job, sounds nice huh? I love being home with my children, yet need some kind of extra income to help out my husband, and to help with my baking habits!
I finally finished the delish oreo balls that I had tried from my step-mom. They were so phenom with that huge indulgence of chocolate in chocolate created and of course enjoyed! I hate to think of how many calories there are in one of those little balls of heaven. You know this cannot be good for nay diet, especially MY diet!
These 2 main ones were made with toffee bits! yum.
