Have Your Life & Eat Cake Too

Palm Treo 755p Cake

Being an avid fan of Ace of Cakes ® on the Food Channel Network, I have always had a desire to have one of their cakes in my house for display and to enjoy. However, since the company that makes the cakes is based in Maryland and does not provide shipping, I had to resort to another means of satiating my desires. Yep, that’s right….I decided to make one myself. Knowing that the task would be challenging, I wanted to pick something that not only would be easy but also represent me. Hmmm, well anyone who knows me know that I am total mess without something to keep me organized. Ahh, I got it…my handy dandy trusty Palm Treo 755p. From that idea, my specialty cake phone was born. Now, I can have my life and eat my cake too. I wonder if I can get a charger big enough for it…lol.

Well, what do you think? Does it look like my Treo or what? I sure hope so because it took 4.5 hours to make.

The cake is strawberry with buttercreme icing. Yum!

East Coast Adventures

I'm back from a 12 day trip on the East Coast! It was so great to be home and to see family and friends. I hugged, I laughed, I cried and it was all worht it! My first stop was in North Carolina to be a bridesmaid in a friend's wedding. She was such a beautiful bride! I also got to hang out with my oldest sister and her friends in NC. We had an awesome girls night out. We ate ribs, rice, turnip greens, corn, and I got to share with them one of my favorite salads which they absolutely loved!

My next stop was in South Carolina to visit family and friends. In less than a 24 hour period, I was able to see mostly, high-school friends, old co-workers.

My next stop was in the nation's capital! I took one of the sight-seeing tours in Washington D.C. not realizing that it was going to be 2 hours instead of 1. Needless to say, I got sunburned on my arms from sitting at the top of the double-decker bus. It was worth it. While on the bus, I met a lady who lived in DC for 18 years and decided to take the tour just because she never had. I love when people decide to explore their own backyard. So often people overlook the treasures right in their own city/town.

My final and most rewarding stop was in New York to visit my baby sister! She had no idea I was coming for a visit. I had to tell a few white lies to make her stay home so I told her I was sending her winter coats that she needed to sign for. I called her when I arrived in NY and told her that I need her work place address to find it on Google Maps to send her a picture of Google's awesome satellite image feature. Then I text messaged her to make it seem as if I was mad at her for not being able to find it on Google Maps. When I got to her job, I asked the ladies sitting in the front to go get her but not to mention it was me. One of her supervisors asked for her in a very stern voice so needless to say, my sister thought she was in trouble. When she walked through the front door, she said, "That's my sister!" Immedietaly, the tears of joy started to fall. As we hugged, I started to cry. Her co-workers started to cry and before you know it, everyone was crying. It was such a touching I hope to never forget. My sister told me afterwards that some of her co-workers decided to call their sisters because it was so touching.

We had the time of our lives running all around New York City as we used to do as kids! Thankfully, I can relive that moment of seeing the joy in my sister's face over and over again in my mind and in my heart.

Dog Lover

Even though this blog is mostly about my company, every now and then you might read a heart-melting post about dogs. Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a dog lover. Tonight I watched the Puppy Bowl 2008 on Animal Planet. Of course, it entails 3 hours of me swooning over some of the cutest puppies the world has ever seen while I munch on popcorn with white cheddar cheese poured all over it. To top the night off, I found a very cool site with a very cute dog. Check it out!
