I have to make this today.. So i better start now!!!! It is not tried and true by me yet, but I have to make it today so I figured you can all share on the journey with me. I will however update how I am doing. I will even post pictures if they turn a mess! If you want some fantastic cupcake design ideas and recipes go check out Wilton!

The Week Before The BIG 1
My son Cory will be 1 on September 6th. How fast a year has passed me by. We are having his party on Saturday. This Saturday! So my week has been so very hectic. Monday and Tuesday were out and about days. Yesterday was cleaning and scrubbing, washing and folding and putting away 5 bins of laundry. Then vacuuming every room, mopping all of the floors, and steaming my carpet. If you would have seen me you probably would have thought i was crazy!!!

Shoot I thought I was Crazy.

Today is baking day!!! I have to bake the cake and the cupcakes so that they are cool enough to decorate tomorrow. My Coco Bunny friend is a great cake decorator and she will be coming by to help me out!!!!

Tonight I also have to go to a viewing. A very sad one. My nephew who is also my Godson, his Godfather who was only about 22 was in a fatal car crash, he held in there for a while undergoing surgeries and transfusions, but he let go. Today I have my nephew here with me, and we are going to make something special for his godfather to put with him. He will not be going as he is very young, but when he is older I will explain to him that a peice of him is with his Godfather.

After that I am going out with my neice to her friend's birthday. Tomorrow is getting everything for the party ready. Last round of shopping, and then decorating the cake, and touching up the house..

Whew.. I am wiped out.. Next week Summer is over for us, and I have to get us back on a NORMAL schedule.
