Whatever Friday

In the words of Rihanna: Cheers to the freakin’ weekend (I’ll drink to that).

Anyone else as glad as I am that it’s Friday? I’ve had a good week, very satisfying…but very long!

1. I’m a little behind on computer stuff this week. Luckily, I knew that in advance and was able to have some super cool stuff for you in anyway.

I made you flower cupcakes. With crack frosting.

I showed you a super easy recipe that your husband can make, even if he’s still in his underwear.

And I told you some of the stuff my mom taught me. (Like to make treats like this.)

Next week? Tackling my reader. Because I miss you all!

2. Tuesday morning, at 4am, guess what happened?  What always happens at 4am (because it would be too easy for it to happen at say, noon). And this time it wasn’t the cat. So…Jordan was home all day on Tuesday. While I had to go to school three times for teacher appreciation stuff. (Thank God Mel works from home.)

{She was fine, btw. I think she got overtired from her weekend and the heat and dehydrated and overheated at practice. It’s not the first time this has happened. Kid WILL NOT drink. Ever.}

3. Then (still Tuesday) the ants came back in my kitchen. And they brought their big brothers and their flying relatives. Did you know that some ants can fly? (I didn’t.)  Yup, turns out that when they “migrate” some of them fly. How they determine which ones fly and which ones hold on like a tandem sky dive jump, I have no idea. So…the exterminator thinks they might be in my walls. IN MY WALLS. Since he has already treated four colonies around my house.

4. On Tuesday, Hayley saw on Facebook that I was having a hard day. So she brought me this to cheer me up. I love that chick.

5. I’m starting a series here that I’d like to call “Flashback Friday.” Just to tempt you with things I made in the past. Sometimes I will be re-making whatever it was, because my photos were so horrible. I’ve been realizing I want to revisit old times. So, for the first flashback Friday, I’m re-sharing a dessert that I had previously detested and then craved when I didn’t know what it was I wanted.

Prior to making this Lemon Cream Pie, I hated lemon desserts. Now? I can’t. Get. Enough.

{Added bonus: it’ll get me to finally finish adding all my recipes to Recipage. :)}

5. Tomorrow I am running the Race for the Cure here in Sacramento. {Gulp.} Expect a deluge of Instagram photos.

Have a great weekend everyone. And have a Happy Mother’s Day. May you be properly pampered!
