Writers Block...I guess

I guess I just have to accept the fact that my blogging desires come in waves.  Or I just get some serious cases of writers block.  I just haven't felt like posting for a long while again.  Does this happen to you?

I haven't had lots of cake orders lately, but I do have some other exciting business related things happening.  First is that I've been asked to sell cupcakes and cookies in a local bagel bakery.  It's been a couple of months in the works, but I'm finally dropping product off on Friday for the weekend crowd.  The second, more far fetched is that I've applied to be on a new competition series in TLC as a spin off of Cake Boss.  My next step is to make a video showing my personality which terrifies me!  I'm waiting to hear from a fellow church member to see if he'd help me out with this.  I'm really not hopeful, but I suppose I've got just as good a chance as anyone, huh?  I guess we shall see!

The boys are starting swimming lessons this morning as they do every summer.  I have to say, though, that I don't look forward to them at all!  They're 5 days a week for around 8 weeks.  One boy has lessons at one town pool, the other at another, 5 miles away.  Monday and Wednesday's when Luke has his, we're out for over 3 hours and have over an hour in between lessons to kill time.  But, they love doing them so I can't say no. 

Next week Zach goes to camp for a week.  This will be his first time going to a sleep-away camp and I'm a bit anxious.  I know he'll have a great time, though.  It's a Christian camp in Pennsylvania that our church is involved in.  We were blessed to receive a scholarship so he could go.  I'm sure Max is looking forward to having a break from his brother for a week too.

I'm hoping I can get the blog-juices going again and resume my normal posts.  Have a great week, all!

Upcoming Review with CSN Stores!

I've been given the opportunity to review a product from CSNStores!  I'll be honest, I had never checked out their site until now.  I had no idea what I was missing!  Goodbye Amazon....HELLO CSNSTORES!  Seriously, I could provide you with a list a mile long of things I want to purchase from their site.  At the top of the list is one of their dining room tables!  The selection is amazing and you won't believe the prices!  I'd tell you which one I'll be saving up for, but I can't decide!  Too many affordable beautiful choices!

Anyway, my review will be from and will be for the American Plastic Toys: My Very Own Kitchen.  Since Luke has been so interested in my cooking lately, I figured he would love this!  Kitchen sets aren't just for girls anymore!  My boy will turn chef...stay tuned!
