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!

To inifinity, and beyond!

Hello dolls and gents!
Today is my precious, courageous, brave, over dramatic, genius, kind, and hot tempered son's 6th birthday!!!
So, how did we celebrate?
First off, we went to the zoo. (Pics to come later, left my camera at home, and had to use a disposable AND my cell phone)

But, sad faces on, so many of the participants couldn't make it.
It saddend me so.
Hospitalizations (friends & family)
Out of Town

NOT a good weekend to do a birthday party! LOL
BUT it was still GREAT!
We got to see Baby Po (panda @ the zoo, yes named after the kung fu panda Po)
And a baby giraffe, a gorgeous red panda, lemurs, otters, flamingos, mambas, pythons, gorillas, parakeet city, and much much more!
We enjoyed it, and he did tell me, "this is the best place to go for a birthday!"

On to the party. Theme: Toy Story 3 (6 in this case ;) )
The cake: chocolate and vanilla with an almond buttercream
The cupcakes: (big boys choice, of course- S'mores with green frosting)
The gifts: AWESOME!
Sad that out of EVERYONE who was invited, only my sister in law and famiyl came, and a friend of Cohens.

Now, Frosting For The Cure.
When I had seen Paula's site for this project, I HAD to join. My Nana was taken from us by Ovarian Cancer, and I know a very beautiful and brave woman, Marissa, who is battling Brain Cancer at such a young age. :(

I hope you guys enjoy my story, and enjoy my cupcakes!
Love and Kuppies!
