My blog started out as a blog for my cupcakes, now it has turned into an everyday into the life of "ME" blog.

Cotton Candy cupcakes & B.S.

Since my last post, I have been contemplating my next post, whether or not I am any good at blogging. Yes, we can all write to an extent, but actually expressing our feelings through words, so that others feel the same; DEEP, and complicated. HA. So, maybe if I don't try so hard, it will happen, or I will just keep thinking this. Tonight was eventful, hubby came home from out of town, had a family meeting, made cotton candy cupcakes, and mommy used bleach to "burn" off some "skin spots". HA.

  Don't ask, or do, and be grossed out. For the past week though, we have been going back and forth, on whether or not to sell our dog. I love Milo, our Great Dane, so very much.(See picture below) But lately, it's just been too much, and I am the one left to fix, clean,  & pick up most of the messes. And 2 small kids, 4 dogs, 4 cats, a house, and a business from home, I am a smidge overwhelmed. It is a hard choice to make, I am so attached to that big galoot, it isn't even funny.

  My hubby has it set in his mind, ad up, ready to go. I get attached too easily, so it sucks for me. Well, enough sad junk. This will be a short post, kind of, shorter than the rest. :) Funny thing, found out a new yummy way to eat popcorn. Ultimate Butter with cut up Candy Fruit Slice, YUM & Odd. (See pic below) New rule for self, do not stay up til 2 am blogging. Especially when I have to get up at 7 with the kids. So, good night to all!

The rules for acceptance of this award are really simple:

*Thank the blogger who bestowed the Award on you.

*Sum up your blogging experience, philosophy and motivation in 5 words.

*Pass the award on to 10 deserving bloggers.

Here goes: my five words would have to be: Love, Patience, Family, Madness, Randomocity

  Yes I realize that "Randomocity" is not a real word, but I dig it, and use it A LOT! :)
My blog started out as a blog for my up and coming cupcake business, then one day, I decided that I had a lot more to say talk about than cupcakes. So, now it is an everyday living blog with, highlights of my yummy deliciousness I like to call cupcakes.

  My kids and husband are my life, family means the world to me! Patience on the other hand, is a word I like, because I am trying to learn it. :) HA. Madness is definitely my life, blog, and head summed up. I love to blog, theres nothing better than sitting down, and having it out for others to read. I think I like to blog because, I want to know if other people out there, are as screwed up as I! HA.

Randomocity At Its Best-- and the blabbing goes on....

I am thinking this is going to be a most random post, lots of loop-de-loops, and frog hopping. So, let's begin. Yesterday my kids were complete JERKS angels! Yes, I know I said it, so what. My son had a thing for hitting Lucy, our little terrier, yesterday and then he also kicked her once! Really?!?!? So, do you want me to kick you? Oh, NO. OK, so tell me again why you think it is OK to kick a dog, who can't and won't, defend herself?! Ugh. Butt head.

  So, then I gave him the whole, if "you treat animals bad they are finding a new home" speech. And he sobbed and cried and kissed her and told her he was sorry. That's what I thought! I just don't know what has gotten into him lately. He is also on this new "I am married to the girl next door" kick. Him and his friend, Cosette, are married. 4 years old and already married, I know they move fast nowadays, but dayum! Speaking of marriage, my husband and I, were at odds last night.

  He practically forced me to go to the ER because I had 3 small bumps pop up, and he didn't want to catch some disease, chicken. Oh and what do you think he did?! Went to Google and looked it up, he swore up and down that I had Impetigo! Impetigo, I do not have, it is something else.... ICK. Last night for dinner, I made some pizzas and some mini cheeseburgers, it was actually good. Until my wonderful daughter decided to give Milo, our temper mental bellied Dane, pizza.

  Oh yes, I woke up this morning to 6 HUGE piles of diarrhea, in my dining room floor. Wonderful. So, this day is off to a most wonderful start! I'm hungry too.... but I need to lose some weight, so I guess it is egg whites for me. You know, last week, every time I turned around I was eating one of my Peanut Butter Bars. Delicious, and I lost 3 pounds!! I definitely could keep that diet plan, yum. Anywhoodles, And the blabbing just goes on and on. Please stop me, for my own bloggy good, it's madness.

  If it weren't for my bloggy friend Ian, letting me vent to him, I would go coo-koo! :) Speaking of coo-koo, last night I purchased a pint of Blue Bell Cotton Candy Ice cream for .20 cent! Hot damn, and it was delish. Of course, I had to share it with my kids, who were waiting up for me. And that much sugar before bed meant, you guessed it, they didn't go to bed! Not until at least 11:30.

  And we're back around to the beginning complaint of my children. HA HA. Oh, how the cycle goes on. But on a positive note, I do truly adore my kids, and I adore staying home with them. Sometimes, as a parent, you just have to vent! :)

Our 4th of July!

For some reason, this 4th of July was so emotional for me, I can't even begin to explain. The day started out fantastic, couple of crying kids, a few choice words between the husband and dogs, and of course ME baking like a mad-woman. Multiple trips to the store for coolers, ice, drinks, sparklers, anything we could think of. The fun part was trekking it all up to the, 1/2 mile away, football field where the festivities were taking place.

  Now don't get me wrong, it is such fun, and the time you get to spend with your family and friends is priceless. But that damn trip up to the priceless moments, will kill you! I am not a marathon runner, but I do workout, but toting 2 kids, 6 pillows, 2 blankets, 2 coolers, chairs, bags of food, and cupcakes that "BETTER NOT GET TIPPED OvER SO HELP ME", was a smidge much. Once we arrived, it was all golden tickets and rainbows. Set up camp and begun.

  We took the kids over to the bouncy houses, which I was NOT waiting in that huge line for, then over to the face painting tent. My little ladybug wanted a ladybug and my little man wanted a big snake, on the sides of their faces. They wore them with pride, After little ladybug, had to have hers re-done twice! :) Ran into a bunch of friends, then had to "Fetch" my brothers and help them to our spot. I really enjoyed our picnic with everyone and the 1/2 case of cokes I threw back. My diet has never been so off, although I counter-acted the cokes with, a turkey sandwich!

  We had a billion sparklers, thanks to our great neighbor, and we lit a few boxes. Of course I captured a bunch of photos, some that were not quite,  up to photography par. But others that were so beautiful. You know that I could not go without goodies, I took red, white, and blue cupcakes, peanut butter bars, and cookies too. Everyone, kids anyways, were set for sugar overload! And trust me when I say, that is exactly what happened, times 10.

  The sun was going down and we all snuggled down into our chairs, laps, blankets and pillows. Fireworks started and that was it, ladybug, was not having it! :) I figured this year she would be big enough to enjoy, instead she sat in my lap with her hand over one of her eyes "not watching", yet commenting on the pink ones.

  My camera died 1/3 of the way through the fireworks which stinks because, afterwards when everyone is in a mad dash to leave, we stay and play soccer, football, Frisbee, and tag. It is so much fun and at times, I feel that this time, is the best time of all. :) I hope everyone had a great 4th! Thank you to all who serve our country and lay their lives on the line for our freedom!
