I only had one cake order last week which worked out fine because I had a big graphics job of 3 business cards and a brochure for one of my clients who needed it asap. So I spent lots of time in front of the screen here so any down time I didn't want to be here, haha. The cake I did do was for a birthday party and was a tank. Now I am not a big 'war' person, but its cake so I wasn't going to make a big deal out of it. I did add a peace sign to the back of the tank, haha.
In my mind the thing shoots rainbows, lol. Can we say too much Care Bears in my lifetime. Maybe it shoots gravy rainbows.... speaking of which, have you seen this!? My kids love this video. We now have the song on our itunes. Whee!
I got to pick up our photo-shoot pictures from Maria last week as well. Here is our new family shot, love it!
Recently, I got organized registering Ariel for summer activities, since things fill up fast around here. I am excited she will be in the preschool for Imagine That while we are teaching, that was pretty much a given, but she loves art so it will be great. Also its the first summer she can go to Vacation Bible School! One of the neighboring church's program is fantastic and so I signed her up. I am really excited about it and I know she is going to love it. I also got her in sunfish swimming for late summer since in my personal experience at our pool is don't go in July (everyone goes then) and August is less crazy and honestly the teachers are always better. So we will do other stuff in July and finish up the summer with swimming, sounds good to me!
Now the big event of the summer in Ariel's eyes is DANCE CAMP! She got the thumbs up from her teacher to join the class which is for 5-7 year olds. She wasn't going to be 5 just yet when the class runs so we weren't sure if it would be a go. Thankfully with her background at the studio her teacher was happy to have her and Ariel's jaw nearly hit the floor when I told her about it. Basically its all day for a week and the girls do ballet, jazz, tap and musical theater with a show at the end of the week. Yay! Should be a blast and I must say I am excited to have a week with Xander.
Speaking of my little man, the words keep coming. He really can speak if he chooses to, that is the key, haha. He will play the repeat game with us, something he generally hated before. Now its hilarious. Ariel will play it with him too which is super cute. They really do have a great connection, I love watching them together. If you give him the phone he will say hi and bye to whoever is calling, and Dad actually thought it was Ariel for a minute. He is dressing himself (with a bit of help) and able to do shirts and coats almost on his own (if they aren't tangled up). He also can get shoes, pants and socks off... something we see a lot of here. He loves being pants-less, haha.
His swimming class with me is going well. He hates the back float, but its mainly because of his hair and ears. He also is smart enough to know the order of the class and and has figured out when the submerging happens and screams if I count down, lol. I don't push him much, as I want him to love the water, which is evident as he races to the change room every time we come. He also enjoys the lockers... which he has discovered make great hideouts.
Ariel's class hosted the mom's last week for Mother's day. She was so excited I was there... so giddy!
Saturday morning I went and had my massage and oh my goodness it was awesome. They had a special on and I got to upgrade to a 75 minute essentials one with a combo of hands and hot rocks. NICE! So my gift certificate was well spent! The steam room was very therapeutic and much needed for my sore muscles
Now I started this blog early in the week but Blogger went down for several days so I couldn't finish it, so here is the review for this week now too, haha.
This week was filled with more cake! I had 4 orders between the busy life of Mommy. First up was a 18th birthday cake...
...then a hockey jersey cake for a 30th birthday...
I took Ariel and Xander to see the fancy dresses at the grad red carpet walk at the local high school. For my American friends, this is our prom. Lots of Hollywood style dresses this year. Lots of flowing material, beading, and low cut backs. These girls looked like a million bucks! The guys too were flashy in bright colored vests with their tuxes rather than the usual black or silver. So its time for, GRAD DRESS fashion show!
This was my fav this year, the color, design and overall look. It is the first dress that comes to mind when I think about this year.
There wasn't much in the way of poofy dresses, but this one made up for it, hee. Lots of tule... lots.
This year the retro look was shared by 2 girls... I had to show the whole look so I blurred the faces.
Loved the look of this, and this was by far the look of the day. Strapless, flowing, jewels, and very Hollywood looking. Most of the dresses this year were purple, blue, burgundy and green. Very pretty!
In conclusion, this one was the 'gasp' dress of the event... more so because the wind hit at the worst time and she gave a show...er, well she didn't seem phased and was striking a pose regardless. Not my style, but it left people speechless for sure... whether that was good or bad is up to you.
Today we had our friends over to join us at church and for lunch. Pooja had brought over some Indian outfits for us to borrow for Ann's wedding at the end of the month.... even one for Ken! Yes Ken will be in a snazzy outfit, pictures for sure, the pants are awesome, haha. She brought me a few saris to look through and offered to get me dressed up the morning of the wedding, yay! We just need to get Ariel an outfit as she doesn't want to be left out. Ariel and I also go invited to attend the henna party night a few days before the wedding, so that will be cool!
This week is starting to look rather full, 3 cakes this and lots of appointments for stuff that should keep me hopping. I am going to go cuddle my boy, he might be coming down with something, he isn't himself. Hoping its just teething but I think its a bug. Blah!
