Cupcake Sunday and Silly Saturday

Kaia wanted her very own blog so we started Kaia's cupcakes at if you want to check it out.  As you can probably guess, it is a cupcake blog and we have now completed our first cupcake recipe.  This site will only be updated once - twice a week as we choose and review our cupcakes for you.

Now, on to our silly Saturday.  Yesterday, I decided that it was time, finally, to get to the post office and mail some deployed friends care packages.  This meant three different packages, a Mommy, and a sweet little baby.  Kaia did excellent at first.  Then, she decided that she wanted to be held, so fussed at Mommy.  Imagine a disgruntled woman, a 4 month old baby in hand, three bags of goodies for packages (not yet packaged), three boxes, three customs forms, and a roll of tape.  I know, hillarious, right?!  So I'm carrying her, trying to keep her from fussing, writing, and trying to scootch along the line with my copious amounts of stuff.  Everyone was looking at me funny and trying to find out if they could go around me.  Which, of course!, this is going to take me awhile people!  Then they start looking at me funny for a different reason and someone finally asks if I need help.  All cheery like I say, "No, thanks!  I think we're good, but thank you so much!"  At which point she looks at me funny again and I look at Kaia to coo at her and keep her happy.  To my utter horror, Kaia has a pen mustache!  Literally, a pen mustache people!  A crooked line above her lip and below her nose!  I did that to my baby!  I'm feeling like the worst mother at this point but am so happy that I at least didn't poke her in the eye!  Then the lady asked me if I wanted her to help by holding my baby!  Um, that is super sweet lady, but Hell No!  I don't know you!  Maybe you can help me scoot my packages along or tape up my box, but hold my baby?!  Oh no!

We finally made it out of the post office and off to the mall to pick up some more wintery stuff for baby.  We ended up getting Daddy a count down calendar (The Office)!  Then we went to the Baby Gap where I again ended up holding Kaia and pushing her stroller.  So many cute things!  My baby totally dresses better than me!  My favorite purchases?  A cute pair of white faux fur boots and a cute pair of mittens and hat.  The hat is a little bunny hat and the mittens match.  Yay for warm babies!  Now the trick is going to be getting her to keep her little boots on!  But yeah, yesterday's excursion definitely reminded me why we don't get out much! 

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Oh how I remember those days when the seemingly simplest tasks are way too much trouble and take way too long! Ugh...sometimes just thinking about it would lead me to just forget about it and stay home.

Brave did a lot in one day with a 4 month old and at least she's got some cute boots to show for it :)

Thanks for all the kind comments ladies! Even though it was crazy, it was also great to get out there and get it done!

It's tough getting out with a baby, but sometimes, it's SO worth it.

Isn't Baby Gap such a dangerous place?????

Now that Cal is too big and I can't go in there, my only advice it! If it's cute and you can't bear to leave it at the store, just buy it!
