I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Spring Break Makes Mommy Tired

I just realized that "Spring Break" is over. We had a nice week, but it went by so fast.

I flipped the calendar to May and did not like what I saw! Maggie has her school birthday party Monday, a doctor's appointment on Tuesday, a field trip on Wednesday and then of course, our usual Thursday and Friday with Library and preschool.

We had a nice break with our zoo trip and visit to Sanford (and delivery of donations for tornado victims). Maggie & Ellie loved seeing Gammy Gladys and having lunch and going to the park with our friends.
On Friday evening, I realized that I had to come up with food for Maggie's party on Monday at preschool. Over an hour of my Saturday was spent making these...
Cake Pops!

I have a hard time making anything that you have to roll into balls or dip into a chocolate or candy coating. Thank goodness, Maggie said they were "the most beautiful things" her eyes had ever seen. The lavender candy coating matches the Disney Pricess plates, napkins and cups that we are using. I'll be stepping on those darn sprinkles for the next week or so even though I have swept and mopped and swept again!

Is her hair getting darker?! The cake pops are a GREAT idea for a school birthday treat. I may borrow your idea!

You did a great job on the cake pops! For reals! Um I made them once and they did NOT look like that! Go you!

I've seen those cake pops all over the internet lately. They def. would have been the way to go for Andrew's party instead of huge cupcakes. Hopefully I can remember them next February.

PS I don't know if you ever saw it but I posted that Cajun Chicken Pasta recipe on my last post.
