The great cake massacre of 2009...

otherwise known as why i dislike store bought cake mix!

So D has a sweet tooth...bad! Every night before bed he has one of three things.

1)Milk and dove caramel chocolate
2)Milk and Reese's cups
3)Milk and cake

I usually make a cake for us 2 times a week. I don't mind because I Love baking and cooking and I love cake.

Typically it is either a red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting or a yellow butter cake with chocolate frosting and it is always homemade. But this week we did get cake mix from the store.

I have no illusions that I will be the super mom who looks beautiful has a clean house a clean child a fantastic dinner and still have time to make homade dessert twice a week.

Clean child and great dinner...I can do. Clean house...a must. Looking's me soooo I have a natural fierceness which will shine through...but homemade desserts twice a week...welll...maybe not. So we decided to try cake mix...just to see how it turns out.


1)more expensive. With what we spent on 2 cakes...I could have mad 4 from scratch.

2)maybe it was old cake mix but the cake didn't come out nice. It sank in the middle and stuck to the pan even though I greased them. then when I iced crumbled and tore as I tried to spread the icing.

3)my icing is better...just sayin.

So the end result was something worthy of the website

Cake wreaks!

and it was OK.

that's right just OK. Not "oh baby this was awesome" or "mmmmmmmm nom nom nom"

I also did not have fun making it.

I will just stick to homade goodies and cake mix from the store be dammed!

To whome it may concern...

Ugh...I am being so incositant with bloggin on this page! sorry guys...i get better!
For my triumphant return I give you


Dear red ants who have decided to inhabite our home,
Seriously? We have tried to be nice. We have tried to use alternative pest control so as not to kill yo guys. But you are now taking advantage of our hopitality. This means WAR! Enjoy your time...while it last!

So not enjoying your presance!

Dear people who have no boundries,

To my friends and family who enjoy my company. Yes I love you all and love seeing you and hearing from you. That being said...
Between the hours of 8 in the morning and noon D and I are usually either A) sleeping or B) running around getting ready for work. We unplud the phone so as not to be disturbed so we can continue sleeping or getting ready for the day. if the phone is not plugged in and you can not get ahold of us that does mean you should just "drop in". Call back later or send one of us a message via myspace facebook email text message. we will get it. And if we say " not a good time" or "come by later please" don't get [issy with us. We are not here to cater to your schedual! On that same note when the baby gets here...if you just drop by we will not answer the door. if you knock once and no one answers do not...I repet DO NOT continue to bang upon the door for five min or try to get our attention by yelling "HEY YOU GUYS! I KNOW YOUR HOME! LET ME IN!" through the door. not only is this rude to us but we live in an apartment building and it also disturbs our neighbors!


Tired of D having bad mornings because of you guys!

Dear Myspace'

You know myspace a lot of people are starting to leave you. Many of my "peeps" have relocated to facebook. Yes I do have a facebook account but I still love you more. and do you want to know why? because I HATE APPS! I don't like them or the constant stream of request that clutter up my mailbox because of it. But now you are going the way of facebook and I am dealing with the APPS on you as well...PLEASE STOP!


Don't go changin...I love you just the way you are!

Dear Medicaid,

Please get your asses together!

that is all

Someone who loves you no matter what time it is :)
