Mundane Monday. . .

Hey girls!
I hope you all had a great weekend! 
Mine was pretty good.
Friday, I helped my boyfriend's sister make treats for her daughter's 2nd birthday party!
The theme was Toy Story, so we made cake pops that looked like Ham & Mr. Potato Head.
Ham: Chocolate cake, m&m's as ears, coated in pink vanilla candy melts!

 Mr. Potato Head was chocolate cake with Peanut Butter candy melts! 
He has a Junior Mint for his hat, m&m's for ears, candy cigarettes for arms, butterscotch chip as his nose & blue almond joy pieces for his feet! 
We drew his eyes and mustache on!

We also made Space Alien cupcakes.
They were made with chocolate cake, vanilla icing {with green food coloring}, white m&m's for the eyes, and a green sour straw for their antenna!

Erika made Bethanee's cake by herself:
I think she did an awesome job!!!
The party was yesterday! Everyone really enjoyed our little treats! :)

As for today, it's been so-so.
Not exactly the best Monday I've ever had, but I guess I can't complain too much!
I'm alive, right?
{I'll keep thinking that way}
I've lost 2lbs on Weight Watchers.  
I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but it's a start... right? :]


Just for today, I'll leave ya'll with two quotes:

"No matter how careful you are, there's going to be the sense you missed something, the collapsed feeling under your skin that you didn't experience it all. There's that fallen heart feeling that you rushed right through the moments where you should've been paying attention." - Invisible Monsters

"You dont know what goes on in anyone's life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person's life, you're not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can't be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person's life, you're messing with their entire life. Everything. . . affects everything." -- Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why


  1. The cake pops, cupcakes, and cake all look awesome! You both are so creative!

  2. those things are so cute! do a tutorial on how to make them! and way to go 2lbs :)

  3. I've never made or tried cake pops but those are adorable and look so fun to make! and the cake is awesome as well!

    I really love that first quote. a lot a lot!

  4. Those are good. You might want to look at a second career outside of nursing, and you could probably make more money.
