Hi Friends! What's on tap for me? I started today with a long run. I have seriously got to stop eating cookies. This is going to become a problem. I don't want my lack of willpower to make me end this whole business thing!!! So I bakes more protein bars and I'm eating those like crazy too!!! HELP ME!!!!
I did get some good news this week. My graduate education course was extended. WOOHOO! I didn't even have to beg and believe me - I called them prepared to beg. However, I knew that my only excuse..."um, yes, I just started a baking business that is taking all my free time...I can give you some free cookies if you let me have a few more weeks!" did not sound very responsible and I was really doubting this would all happen. The university told me that MANY students have been asking for extensions because they shortened the deadline this year from a YEAR to complete the self-paced course to 3 months. I lucked out. So now I have until March 31st instead of Jan. 31st. It's a little blessing with all the baking I have ahead of me. :)
I will be creating spiderman cookie favors this weekend for a 4 year old's birthday party. I'm really excited to use some of my new techniques from the books I just ordered from Amazon. I am searching for a 4 inch easter egg cutter though. I thought I had one and it is only 3 inches. I learned from the bee cookies that I would rather have them a bit bigger, especially for favors. So I am on the hunt for one by this weekend. I would just order one, but it may not get here in time. I dragged Paige to Michaels today thinking they would SURELY have Easter stuff out. Guess what???? They don't....they didn't even have all their Valentine's Day stuff out. I was shocked. The time I WANT them to jump into the next holiday before the current one is over and they DO NOT! Maybe I should try Hobby Lobby.
I did buy other stuff...some needed and some not. So much cheaper to just stay home.
I also ordered a bowling pin/ball and superhero cutter from coppergifts.com Before I know it, I will be doing Ben's party and I don't want it to sneak up me. He wants a superhero theme so I think I'll be making superhero face cupcakes and then superhero (body) cookie pops for the favors. Gosh, lots to think about! The bowling cookies are for a 4 year old's party on the 23rd.
Bedtime...gotta get some rest!!!
