Mom’s 50th Suprise Party

Last Friday we packed up the car and headed to Kingston for the weekend! I was pretty tired even before we left since I worked all week and was up at 4:15 everyday…..

napMy Stepdad and I had been planning my Mom’s surprise 50th Birthday Party for a couple months and it was Father’s Day weekend……so definitely a busy couple of days laid ahead!

Never let a man touch your Cupcakes

In case you don’t remember or somehow missed my post from the other day…………


I will now only be referring to this as “the incident”  Basically while Shane was loading 5 dozen Cupcakes into my car 1 dozen of these cuties


Turned into this…….



When I saw this, the first thought to go through my mind was this


But I quickly realized a couple things

  1. Shane out weights me by almost 70lbs
  2. I am weak and a terrible fighter
  3. This is assault

Damn….ok plan B

Step one Take off all the candies and wrappers
Mush up ( I wore gloves)
Roll into balls, put in sticks and firm up in the freezer
Melt some white chocolate

Dip in the chocolate and decorate with whatever sprinkles you want. Once set I wrapped them up and made a little display for them…..




Now to not eat 20 Cake Pops before tomorrow!



Did I do that??

So when I left you last I had spent a couple hours making and decorating cupcakes for a couple people at work. I even decided to make a couple dozen extra to bring in for the other staff in my area.  Friday Morning I got up bright and early . I always make Shane’s smoothie in the morning so while I was doing that I told him to politely asked him to put all the cupcakes in my car. 

So he nicely got up and did just that. It seamed as though he was taking quite a long time to do this simple tasks and I was starting to get a bad feeling. And when I opened the front door to leave I saw Shane standing on the front porch looking like 


Covered in icing……..What did you do!!!


Apparently there had been an accident!  One dozen of the cupcakes had went from this……..


To this……..


I wasn’t very happy at 530! Let’s just saw he’s lucky we were in the driveway and the neighbors could hear…..

My day did get better when I opened my email and found this!!! 


 Yep that’s right! Guess who was picked from the draw for the Toronto Nike Woman’s 15 K on Toronto Island, June 14!



Wonder what will be in the swag bag!?

I’m more excited then Jesse Spano on pills!


Well this girl is working all weekend. Have a great holiday!  I’ll be dreaming of someplace warm! 


12 KM run, Easter Cupcakes and Cream Eggs oh my…….

Up at 7 this morning with a million things to do on my day off…..Ugg….TGIF tomorrow……NOT


After Breakfast and Coffee, I started making Cupcakes for tomorrow (More on that later)…..

I was holding out for it to warm out as promised by the Weather Channel…….


18C / 65F my ass…….I finally just said screw it and left for my 12K run


Here we go! It was just one of those terrible run days. I wasn’t feeling it at all! My legs felt heavy and nothing was going smoothly.


I picked a new route that I haven’t went before just to mix it up a bit……Big mistake…..The hills I knew about, fine, but it was all the other obstacles that were the problem. From no sidewalks for the majority of the run (which I don’t mind if there is at least a gravel shoulder to run on), to major spring construction, not to mention the insane wind that was trying to carry me away! But then tragedy struck…… music died at KM 8!


Now most runners will know that this is not ok. I almost had a break down. But I was able to push through and finish the run!


12 KM in 1 HR and 12 MIN…Not my best day…..but it is what it is!

I had a ton of meal prep to get done for the weekend as well as 3 Dozen Cupcakes that a couple of girls from work had ordered from me for Easter. I grabbed all the supplies at the Bulk Barn except for the little licorice sticks I use for the handles, and the only place that has these is Wal-Mart. While at Wal-Mart I got lost and happened to wander through the Easter Candy Isles…… oops…..I just happened to stumble across these…..


ummm…..You have to be kidding me!

excitedI love Cadbury Cream Eggs!!!! So I did what any rational person would do…..I bought 4 packs……


judge me

When all is said and done it was a productive and healthy day overall.

Dinner was a Turkey Burger with no bun and some Green Beans and some Plantain I cooked up (in coconut oil) before they went bad……Delish



Cupcakes are finished ……

Easter Basket Cupcakes


All done!

I am just now sitting down with a glass of Wine to enjoy the last bit of the evening!


Have a great weekend!
