Diaper Cake!

I’ve always wanted to put together a diaper cake the 1st time I saw one at a baby shower. So last night was my opportunity! I’m glad that I got some help…it took 4 hours with 4 people helping. But the times of sharing silly stories and laughing uncontrollably didn’t help speed up the process either. 😉
For those of you that don’t know what a diaper cake is, it’s not edible. It’s a bunch of rolled up diapers shaped into a cake formation with ribbons and bows and all things baby. Inside the cake are the presents!
I was trying to figure out what boxes or tins I was going to use for the structure, because going to work this week threw off my timing. But I got my order from Shade Clothing in the mail last night. I had to call my apartments just minutes before closing to please please please stay open until I get there to pick up that box! (Accident on freeway tied up traffic).
So I got the box (and cute new clothes too) and headed to the store to buy a lifetime supply of rubber bands, over priced (which they strategically don’t put the price on) baby deco stuff, and mommy pamper gifts (lavender Shea butter body cream for the growing tummy, and Ghirardelli chocolates to make that belly grow).
So here’s a few pics of how it all turned out! It was a lot of fun, but now I know what not to do next time!

We ran out of cute orange ribbon so all we could find around the house was this synthetic ribbon stuff. (You know, the kind you get at x-mas time). I was getting pretty tired here. Started at about 8:30 and left my friends house at 12:20, got home at 1am!

Making the cute bows to cover the pins. (I hope she finds all the pins before changing her baby!)

Frog topper croaked. 😛

Since the frog was a little limp we gave it a car seat! Lol. That was interesting to make.
So now it’s all done and here’s the view from each angle.

The wrapping paper for the boxes said “baby” all over it and I kept getting Justin Beiber’s Baby song stuck in my head! ahhhhh! Get out get out!
It’s definitely not “professional” quality “baking”. But it was a labor of love and so much fun!!
Have a great day! ❤

Bedtime routine…

20130205-004335.jpg
How come “going to bed” never feels like you will get there?
I don’t think I do that much to get ready for bed; wash face, remove eye makeup, toner, essential oils, night cream, eye cream, whatever else face stuff, brush teeth, take out contacts, check thermostat, turn on electric blanket, pj’s, turn off lights, crawl into bed, put on chap stick, take off rings, put on hand cream, put rings back on, scroll on Pinterest, turn iPod onto Enya, shut out bed light, toss n turn, eventually fall asleep.
No wonder women are complicated! Lol! 😛

Groundhog Day

20130203-070138.jpg
So today is Groundhog Day, and for some reason the Portland Zoo uses a hedgehog to see if spring is around the corner. Keep Portland Weird! Lol!
Jabari did see his shadow…who wouldn’t? It was a Beautiful Day!! (He’s only 38% accurate though) 😉

But Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow today. WOOHOO! He’s a lot more accurate, so lets go with that forecast.
Come on SPRING! 😀

Crazy dream!

You know when you are anticipating something for SOOOO long, then the morning of you have a crazy dream about it?
Well about a month ago…I went to get my car detailed out. It was about 102° that day, so it took them for-EVER! (I don’t blame them….it doesn’t get that hot here hardly ever). So when I finally get it all cleaned up, sign the release papers, then on my happy little way home…. I get to my exit and stop at the light, all this smoke is billowing out my hood! 8-/
Happy bubble burst…
So when I take it to the shop, they diagnose it…$$$$ I drive home and park it in disbelief…
So it’s been about a month since then cuz I had to wait till the money fell from the sky. I’ve been driving a friends car the whole time, which I’m thankful. But my borrowed car is a four-banger. It barely makes it up my 14% grade hill. I miss my Turbo Eclipse… :(… I miss my ability to control the engine…I miss that pressure release when I hit 4000RPM in 2nd gear getting on the freeway…
I MISS MY CAR!!! *snif snif*
So today tomorrow is the day I get it back!!! So what happened before that?? This CrAzY dream!!!

I dreamed I just got my car back from the shop and then when I went and brought it to my parking spot somebody had parked in my spot…
They thought it’d save them parking fees, so they just took the liberty. SCOFF! That’s MY parking spot!
Then I eventually get my parking spot back, or park on the street, then that lady came by when I wasn’t looking and pieced the body off for scrap metal to pay for their wedding!! >;;:-|
And then I went on to the front desk of wherever I was at, the receptionist showed me their wedding website and I went bazurk and totally was like bringing it down of their happy paper flower cutouts and happy pictures and was screaming BURN BURN BURN! 8-/ Someone from the other room asked me to come see them, then they asked me, can’t you just get another car?!? YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND!!! I’ve been waiting forEVER to get my car back, then it gets carjacked…NO I’m not gonna JUST get another car!!! Then I went crazy…then my friend woke me up by texted me for when to pick her up to help me get my car back. 😛

Just to clarify…this was not the “real me”. I’m a really mellow person that rolls with the punches…I have no idea where this crazy anger spawned from.
I just want my car back….
