Weekend Roundup!

The weekend was good! Today I will be making a chocolate cake stuffed with and covered in candy for BLB. His birthday was this weekend, but BLB had to work so we’re celebrating today.  BLB is insisting on chocolate chips, and two kinds of m&ms baked into his cake and on the frosting.

Seriously–that boy loves his chocolate! The cake should have a hazard label on it–but there’s no room with all that candy :-)

I’m hoping to get back to the gym today to work off some of that cake–plus the truffles Wizard and I had for Valentines Day and beyond.  My back is doing better, not sure its up to working out yet, but I think I should try.

Hmm…am I forgetting anything else I wanted to tell you all?

Darn it, I feel like there was something else I want to say. Okay…not subtle enough? LOLOL!!! This is my countdown guy. I’m putting him on FB too.

Now it’s your turn, how was your weekend?

    :) You’ve started my Monday off with a smile.

    BLB sounds like he knows what he wants in his cake. It sounds good to me :). Maybe you can place an index card in front of the cake warning to eat at risk of severe sugar rush ;). I hope you guys have a wonderful time celebrating tonight.

    Please take it slow at the gym. We want you all better so you can enjoy the release of The Proposition :). I may snag your countdown guy and post him on FB too.

    I finally got my car back at 5:30 Friday night so you know I had to go out Saturday :). Had coffee with girlfriend and her daughter (she brought her boyfriend and I felt kind of bad for him ;). Oh well).

    Have a great day!

    I love your countdown guy. What a great way to announce your new book! =o)

    That cake sounds too decadent even for me. But if that’s what BLB wants, that’s what he gets. Good luck getting to the gym and working out. After you eat a piece of that cake, you’re going to need something to get the blood flowing again.

    My weekend was spent helping the Kid pack. We mailed four boxes last week and we have more to go out when the post office opens back up on Tuesday (stupid postal holidays). Then we fly out on Wednesday. I’ll be coming back alone the following Wednesday. :sniffle: If you get a chance, stop by the Killer Chicks and read about me letting go (and see a pic of her when she was a tot.) 19 years go by fast.

    I totally understand a boy with a chocolate addiction. I gave my son a heart with dark chocolate filled candy for Valentine’s day and he hugged me. (13 year old boys do not just hug their mom’s) :lol:

    My husband is doing ok. The healing process- physically mentaly and emotionally is slow. I caught a break and went out shopping with a friend this saturday. We had lunch and just generally got away from family for a while. Recharging helps.

    Count down guy is great. Maybe you could make his shorts shrink as it comes closer to the 26th? Just saying. :twisted:

    Kat, that’s an awesome :idea: !!! Somebody far less tech-challenged than me needs to design a countdown widget like that! I’m glad your hubby is doing better and yay for getting out. You need to remember that you’re worth taking care of too, right?!?

    B.E., you’ll be there to help her get settled. Just remember, she’s on a grand adventure. And you will survive this. It’s part of the circle of life. *hums the song*

    Viki, so glad you have your car back! I hate it when I’m left without one. There is no such thing as mass transit around here so I’m stuck until Lawyer Guy gets home. :P

    And finally, Jen! Hot stuff there, witch! I can’t wait for this series. *happy dances* I’m also going into a chocolate coma just reading about BLB’s cake!

    As for my weekend, I had chapter meeting, got my hair cut–radically, and had a breakthrough on ROGUE MOON. Now I’m hoping for a productive week. Happy Monday, witches! :-D

    Viki, I bet the boyfriend felt a little out of place! But kudos to him for going! And YAY on getting your car back! I don’t mind a day or so, but after that I get anxious without a car.

    I went very light at the gym. My doctor is probably right and this is a disc or something. But I swear it’s not sharp pain, it’s just irritating.

    Cake is in the oven now. We’ll see if it comes out of the pan and holds up. Every year, it’s a struggle. Wizard says BLB does this just to mess with me, he’s probably right :-)

    Feel free to steal the countdown guy!

    B.E., thanks on countdown guy! I sort of stumbled onto him and got the idea. I started playing in Bigstock’s edit program and that’s how it all happened.

    And that explains where my time goes too!

    It’s a rough week for you. I’m sorry. I know this is best for your kid, but so hard on you. And I’ll get over to Killer Chicks sometime today.

    Kat what an awesome idea on countdown guy! I wish I had the skill for that, darn it! LOLOL!!!

    I’m really happy that you were able to get our for a while. Your family is going through a lot. I feel for all of you.

    Yay for scoring a hug from your 13 year old boy! That’s impressive!

    Wow Silver, you had a big weekend! Did you post pics of the radical cut? I need to go look! Awesome on the breakthrough! I love those!

    Isn’t it amazing how energizing chapter meetings are?

    Nope. No pic of the cute yet. The Only is going to do new “publicity shots” for me. I’ll reveal it then. ;)

    Ah, come on Silver, you know you’re cute!!! I love typos, LOL!!!

    Can’t want to see your publicity shots.

    I desperately need to do them too. Wizard will take them then I have someone in mind to beg to polish them up. But I just don’t want to take them.
