Kimbosue's Blog has MOOOOOVED!

**As of November 9, 2009, please find me at my new home below.**

Some posts are pw protected, so for the super secret decoder pen....ahem... code, please email me at kimbosue2 AT hotmail DOT com.

This blog will remain open. The link is still tied to lots of IF blogs, groups, and websites. I hope someone can read through my journey and find hope and strength and know that there is a light at the end of the IF tunnel. Prayer is the key! I love all my IF girlies I met along the way, and I hope to keep your friendships going forward during this next chapter of Mommyhood. I hope to see you there!

Happy Friday Before Christmas!

  • I am 3/4 of the way through with the Graduation cake that is needed for TONIGHT'S graduation party. EEK! The cake itself looks like a book with "Engineering" written on the binding, then supposed to be another small roundish cake (I used my Pampered.Chef.Batter.Bowl) that is the base of a grad cap, then the mortar board on top of that. Well my black fondant to covered said bottom of cap was waaaayy to dry. Partly because (in order to make it black) you can add some melted chocolate and some cocoa. Well I used up all my chocolate making cake.balls (YUM-O by the way) earlier in the week, so I only added cocoa. This made it brown and then I didn't have to add so much black color and make everyone's mouths black. So because of the dryness, it kept cracking and would not lay smooth on the cake. So I had to chunk it. Luckily I had leftover batter that I made cupcakes with. So when I get home I am putting those on instead, with the mortar board on top.
  • Tomorrow is our Cookie/Beer.Exchange. Last year I hosted a, but Dean asked me "what about the boys?" So I asked him what he wanted to exchange....well you know what he said!! Everyone loves the idea so I can't wait for the party. We have yet to go to the store to get all of our ingredients (we're doing appetizers too) but we'll be making a late night run somewhere tonight after the Grad Party.
  • I'm off next week - WOOHOO! Last minute hair appointment on Monday (the roots are KILLING ME) and gift purchasing. Oh and more food preparing I am sure.
  • I wish people would start commenting on my belly. They are now just starting to look at my belly, and then look at my face, and then look at my belly and I guess just assume I'm getting fat because they don't ask if I'm pregnant. I should be happy about that, but I am FINALLY really pregnant and I want the comments so badly! I guess its still a small bump so people might think I am just gaining weight, that and the fact that 'TIS THE SEASON for getting large and in charge with all those hoilday goodies, right?
  • Oh and I took a belly pic this week, but camera-dora is at home and I have the USB cable in my purse. DOH! I'll post that and cake pics when I have a moment....

Have a good weekend!

6 nice things to say...:

I'd know you are pregnant if I saw you, but then again I can spot a pregnant woman 10 miles away! I have a pregnant radar! LOL!

I'm off work for the next few weeks too, and it's such a wonderful feeling!

I think some folks are worried about asking and all that political correctedness and stuff.
The cake sounds amazing, very challenging. I love the Beer/Cookie Exchange and recommend Abita Amber from Louisiana if you can get it.
