Cupcakes and drugs.

I was woken up early by my daughter Ashley. She was insistent the I get a new Christmas outfit. I think her hidden agenda was to get herself some outfits with her Christmas bonus.
So off we went to the mall. I was surprised that it wasn't busy at all.
So I think we hit every clothing store in the mall. I tried on so many outfits I was getting discouraged. You know (or maybe you don't) when you are carrying a few extra pounds around (like 10) and you hate everything you try on.
On the other hand Ashley looked cute in everything she tried on. Plus lots of stores had 50% off on every item.
Well as it turned out I finally found a blouse that didn't look to bad on me, plus 50% off. I could live with it.

I also promised Ashley we would make her cupcakes today. These are the trial version.
Here are her Red Velvet Cupcakes. I would love to tell you that they are delish, but I have no taste buds due to this cold.
These are coconut cupcakes with cream cheese icing. Again everyone says that they are really good.
They were both a lot of work. I would have bought a package mix and been done with it:) I just thought that I would show you how I display my Christmas cards. I hang them off this greenery I put up at Christmas. I just punch a whole in the back of the card and poke a branch through it. Sorry about the picture, I should have taken it during the day.
Onto my day:

Well I told you about my day, besides Ashley dyeing my hair. All the grey is gone again, just like magic. So I will tell you about my night. I never take any kind of pills, that is just me. But hubby convinced me to take some cold meds last night. Now if you know me, I take an aspirin and I am down for the count, lol. So last night I kept having the same dream. I was a spy and there were hidden messages in my Candy Poppers video, and I had to decipher them. LOL. It was like I just kept rewinding my dream, drove me crazy. You think I am watching to much Alias? teehee.

Thankful Thursday:

1. That I found a blouse to wear at Christmas

2. That my hair is coloured for the holidays

3. Hubby is home tomorrow

4. My girls and Wayne are all home for the holidays, no work, no school, just family.

5. That my girls still like to spend time with me.
