I'm Baaaaaack!

Helloooo my dear friends :-) Oh my gosh...it feels like forever AND a day that I have been on this blog! Great news (at least for me...mua hahahahaha) is that I'M BACK! Yep! Finished my last OT day on Wednesday AND I DIDN'T EVEN HAVE THE WORK THE ENTIRE SHIFT! *doin' the happy dance*

I have spent the last day and a half working on stuff around the house that I have been putting off and taking "Big Black" (my car...hahaha) to get serviced. Poor girl hasn't seen an oil change since January :-( We call her big black because she takes up as much room in the garage as my Jeep Commander did...and she's a car!! Hey...I'm not the only one that names my car. Nope. My husband has named his "The Lady" and our oldest son has named his newest car "Big Sexy". PPfft. PaaaaaaaLEEEEEEEEEZ!!! hahahahahaha!

So now that I have all my chores out of the way I get to play for the next two days. Well, almost. I do have an order to fill tomorrow for a local customer BUT I don't have to bake it while working a million hours at my other job. WooHoo!!! OH...and speaking of baking, I have made some changes in my shop as far as goodies I offer. I have take out all of my chocolate dipped items because it has just become too hot here in Arizona to ship them out. I would rather not have my customers receive something that resembles....well...you know where I'm going with this! HAHAHAHAHAHA!! Instead, I am adding new items like lemon curd muffins and nutty chocolate chip cookies. I will also be adding more U-bake items as well as some macadamia/white chocolate chip cookies AND The Commander's White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies!! You heard me right...LuLu's darling husband shared HIS recipe with me and.....OMG these are to die for! Look for these beauties today as they will be posted in my shop shortly :-)
OH! Before I go...I do have to announce that Corbin has done it again! Just when I think my son cannot surprise me anymore..HE DOES! April 24th was the ROTC awards night and Corbin J. Crosby came out with the most decorations WHICH INCLUDED the Association of The United States Army award. This award is handed to one ROTC participant PER DISTRICT! Sadly, the auditorium sucked for lighting so the picture is crap BUT it shows him being pinned by a retired Colonel....
Ok...it's time for me to go visit all of you WONDERFUL friends who have been ever so patient with me. I am truly grateful to have such fabulous people in my life. Thank you :-)
Love & hugs,
Laura
