Monday morning laughter

August 25th, 2008  |  Posted in personal

I was taken by surprise this morning and hit with a case of the giggles that almost had me falling out of my chair. I was starting my week with a typical morning procrastination and looking at websites when I saw a link for Cake Wrecks on MSNBC.com. I am an ametuer pastry chef and have had many cake wrecks myself, let us all forget the pirate ship cake that looked a lot like a brown log if you know what I mean, and so I was intrigued. Once I saw the blog I couldn’t stop looking or laughing. What a great way to start the day. I especially liked the watermelon cake and the lifesized bride.

Vacation

August 18th, 2008  |  Posted in personal

Vacation is so nice. The only bad thing about it is coming back from vacation. This past week my husband and I spent four days in the Bahamas at the Atlantis resort. Wow, is all I can say about Atlantis. The trip was a prize through my husband’s work and what a prize. We swam with the dolphins, snorkeled on the reefs and spent the day at the resort’s waterpark. It was crazy cool. I even took a waterslide through the shark tank. Crazy, crazy place. Maybe some day we’ll go again. I thought I’d show you some fun photos. By the way, check all your gear to see if it is working before you go on vacation. I took an old digital SLR and a underwater point and shoot with me. I tried using the SLR when we got there and it didn’t work. Argh!!! I ended up having to use the point shoot the whole time. It worked ok. Just frustrating that the other camera didn’t work.

My feet on the beach in the Bahamas. I grew up on the beach in Florida and I love to stand on the beach and let the water lap at my feet. Every time I get near a beach I have to do this.
