EGADS!! Where has this summer gone? I can't believe that I have to go back to work so soon. I think I could easily become a professional bum (professional meaning I would have to get paid to be a bum!) ;)
I think a lot of my summer, as many of you may know, has been spent in the kitchen. I don't have a "bakery" but I do take orders from my home. Speaking of which..see this cupcake?
My son had been asking for a coca-cola cake. I thought I'd try to make it into a Coke Float Cupcake. He enjoyed it. It was a nice treat, but a little time consuming if you have "help" ;)
You can click the image below to get the recipe for yourself.
Now the funny thing is when I make cupcakes, I feel like the little red hen.
EVERYONE wants to eat them...no one wants to help clean up.
Mind you, my SON wanted these...but here's our conversation when I asked him if he'd help clean up
Me: Connor, will you help me clean up?
Connor: Madison (his sister) will.
Me: She is, but everyone needs a part in helping clean up. We all get a job.
Connor: I'm the Health Inspector!
Apparently I have MAJOR cupcake brain. Here's my new clip chart for my classroom.
You can click the image below to find it on TpT.
Now the bad thing is...there are not a lot of cupcake decorations out there for a classroom
I need an alphabet and a calendar and I'd be set. I can find lots of border to match.
I could probably make something, but my printer really likes ink. I need to check into getting a new one that's a little less happy with the amount of ink cartridges it eats.
I have to admit, I do love themes, but I don't go all out. Like I said, a calendar and border and I'm a happy camper. I do ADMIRE all those beautiful classrooms. As a matter of fact, I posted about this last year here.. I am in the same boat again. GEESH, what pinterest and blogs do to a girl!! lol
HOWEVER, I am a sucker for books, smelly stickers and the Target $1 spot
. Maybe hoarder is more the word? (Is this why I'm broke?)
Moving on... ;)
I'm also now on Instagram.
I don't have a separate personal/blog account--so it's a hodgepodge of my life.
Kids, school, cupcakes, etc....
