Bedtime Prayer

E's bedtime prayer tonight:

Thank you, God, for Chick-Fil-A. And for the whole world. And, God. You ARE my favorite God. And thank you for the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Yes. Amen.

The Pajamas & Pancakes Party we did for E's 3rd birthday was featured recently on the Calligraphy, Etc. blog. Calligraphy, Etc. (based in Lubbock, TX) did the great invitations for the party.  It was fun to see the little write-up about the party, but mostly I pass this along in case you're ever in need of custom invitations yourself. Calligraphy, Etc. always does an outstanding job... you won't be disappointed. Plus, they sell all kinds of great goodies besides invitations. Stop by their website if you're so inclined, and do a little bit of shopping.

My Secret Ambition

I want to own or work in a bake shop. I'm not good enough/talented enough to actually do this right now. But maybe some day.

I find myself wanting to bake sweet things all the time. Mostly just cupcakes. I don't care to eat sweet things all of the time. In fact, I could take or leave them. But if I had to leave behind the actual baking of sweet things, I wouldn't be happy.

The cupcakes I baked for my birthday party this year

Chocolate-Coconut (front) & Peanut Butter (back)


Maple Cream

The sweetest cupcake of all.

Reading Again

I'm reading again. I go through phases. Sometimes all I want to do is read. And other times I go weeks without picking up a book.

Last week I read all three books in The Hunger Games series. Loved them. Very captivating story (Thank you, Jessica, for loaning me the books!).

Yesterday I read The Catcher in the Rye. It was clearly an engaging story, as I couldn't put it down once I started. But at the end of it all I was, naturally, a little depressed. Certainly glad I read it, though.

What are your must-reads? I've started a list. I love a good book recommendation. And if you recommend something to me and it stinks, I promise not to judge.
