When I read a blog, I always wonder, who is this person? How do I relate to them? What do they look like? So for my very first thing, I will tell you about who I am and how I relate to the world. This blog is not here to make me seem perfect. If anything I am putting it out there to show that people DON’T have to be perfect! So I will try to put it into a “nutshell” for you.
First off, I am a mother. I have 2 children. Punk is turning 7 at the end of Aug 2012. And Bear who is 9 1/2. Above all I am their Mother. I am the snuggler, I am the giver of hugs (even if they are unwanted in public). I make food which is generally deemed “The best dinner EVER” until the next night. Nothing fancy, just good. I don’t pretend to be healthy. I tried that, it made me sad. I am a total Sugaraholic. If it has sugar, chances are I like it, except for Necco wafers, those taste like chalk to me. There is not a single day that goes by that I don’t have coffee. My kiddos say that if I had a signature scent it would be cupcakes and coffee ( Yankee Candle should get on that).
I try to be organized, but sometimes I fall short. I am a MASTER of “making it work”. I forget, I apologize and I fix. Then I try to sit back and laugh at it all. Example: While working on getting my home kitchen certified, I made sure I had my checks, paperwork, certifications etc, I drove to the Dept of Health. While I was there, the girl looked at me funny. I looked down at my shirt and realized I was wearing a “No Kitchen Required” t-shirt. On the front of this shirt it read “Health Codes Will Be Violated”. Lucky for me, the inspectors had a sense of humor. They ended up taking a photo of me with the sign. Next time I will pay more attention to my outfit.
2nd only to being a mother, I am a baker. I own my own place out of my home. VCVC Cupcakes is a passion of mine. Some jobs are done because we have to, I do this because I WANT to. It is worth the sweat in my small kitchen, and the ache in my hands after frosting a big order, just to see the looks on the faces of people when I hand them their Frostitution. Food isn’t a way to my soul, it IS my heart and soul.
So just for fun…. THINGS I LOVE–
