GA, United States
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!

Meet New Friends Sunday!

I just love a good blog hop, especially when I get to meet new friends!
If you feel froggy, hop on over and grab this button and get to making some friends.

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

{Singing Frosty the snowman}.... Why do I feel in the spirit NOW?! Maybe that's because it is supposed to snow again tomorrow! I am super excited, if you can't tell. Now, I know what some of you may be thinking, she is crazy! I am, thanks for noticing. But no, here in GA, we don't hardly ever get snow. SNOW when we do, get it haha ok done, then I get all cheerful. Maybe its just because I know that school will be closed, which it is, and my hubby might be trapped relaxing here with us too!

Now keep in mind, this is GA, west GA- 30 min. to Atlanta. So what happens when it snows? RUN! GET THE MILK, THE BREAD, SOME EGGS, AND CANNED SOUP! That's right, we freak. I, on the other hand, do not. I am one of those idiots who is grocery shopping amidst all of the panicked loons. Which I was not happy about seen as how I had to pay for the good bread and not the walmart brand, thank you loons. You owe me $.50!

It's time for another catch up!

I am slowly dribbling, haha, back in to the blogging world again. I know it is already 2011, but how was everyones Christmas holiday? Let me recap mine for you. It was entirely too short. But, the one thing that sticks out in my memory, my son giving me a necklace he bought at his schools "Santa Shop". He bought him by himself, no daddy there trying to persuae him into something, and he was so excited to give it to me. I opene dit up, and it was a silver necklace with a charm on it that said: #1 Mom, with a heart. I literally started to cry! My sweet little 5 year old boy! Ahh, I just wanted to squeeze him! So, I do have some wonderful pictures though from my holiday, would you like to see? Good if you do, too bad if you don't. ;) However, I would like to note that at my grandmother's house we always have a staple dish for the holidays we like to call, Spaghetti & Cheese, and this year it was replaced! gasp! Who are you Hashbrown Casserole?! What did you do with my dear Spaghetti & Cheese?! I will post the recipe and a picture (by picture I mean a picture of my husband standing in the kitchen from 3 turkey days ago, with it just sitting in the background) below if your interested. :)

Spaghetti & Cheese (Parker Family Holiday Tradition)
*this is a go by look recipe, so I will try to be specific.
1 lb. Angel Hair Pasta; cooked and drained
Block cheese; I use extra sharp cheddar, and mild
6-8 eggs; beaten
1-2 cups of whole milk

Add pasta to a greased glass 13x9 baking dish, top with sliced cheese, tuck some into the pasta as well. Mix eggs adn milk together and pour over pasta mixture, salt and pepper to taste, and bake @ 350 for 45 min. YUM.

So, I just finished my interview for a customer service job, working from home. And, I got it!!! I am so excited! I am not super excited about the last minute schedule change, but, hey its a job. I thought I would have Fri. and Sat. off, so I could spend time with my kids and all, but now it is Sun. and MOn. off. Oh well. Its money. I am excited to start training in a couple weeks! I hope I rock, so can get my performance bonus every month! Wish me luck. And, If I do fall on my face, let's hope it doesn't hurt too bad. :)

Stylish Blogger Award!! That's for me YO!

First I would like to thank my girl Kristin, not me, over at Keenly Kristin... YOU ROCK MY FACE OFF! Go check out her blog, like now, are you still here?! ;)Anywhoodles, here goes the rules:
1.Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award (Done!)
2.Share 7 things about yourself.(ahhh great, im going to lose followers)
3.Award 15 other bloggers. (Easy-peasey)
4.Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award. (No prob bob)

Seven things about myself:

1.) I am a desperate romantic, and by this, I mean.... I love when romantic things happen that involve me, but I am too lazy to do them for my hubby. As long as he does them for me, im good. :)

2.) I recently cut out a family out of my tree.

3.) Saffron is amazing, if you haven't cooked with it, I suggest doing so.

4.) My across the street neighbors (The Hurtubise's) rock my face off and I adore them boatloads. Not really about me, but I love them.

5.) Hair lazy. I love pretty hair. I do not have any talent in doing this though. I am jealous of those who do.

6.) I secretly despise my husband for getting rid of our dog. I am very put off by it adn upset. Grant it, the dog is still here in the house with us, but this is his 2nd time coming back. You would think that my hubby would get that he is supposed to be here. Yet, there is an add up for him again.

7.) I do not like cupcakes very much. GASP!!!

Now for the lucky stylish bloggers whom I choose!
