I Baked a Cake

Sunday was my friend Anne's Birthday.  I was a little late but I whipped up this cake for her on Monday and took it over to her when she got home from work.  Just a box mix with some Nutella, my favorite, in between the layers.  She said that she loved it and that it was really moist.  It's only about 6 inches wide and a little taller than that. I put little mini chocolate chips on the top of the cake.

I, also, gave her my favorite candle from Anthropologie. She loves the Aloha Orchid fragrance as much as I do.  It has a really sweet smell if you like that kind of fragrance.

Bad News...Good News

Ugh! I've been Laid Off....

Bad News...yepper...I just found out Tuesday...sigh..

Right now I'm looking at the positive side of things. 
A) I wasn't asked to clean out my desk
B) Hopefully, I'll be back in 30-60 days
3) I now have time to blog!!

I had just come back from a mini vacation of 5 days off to celebrate the "Birthday Week".

It was an awesome week of celebration, time spent with wonderful friends, and very special gifts.  The thing I like most about my birthday week is that I get to spend one on one time with my wonderful friends/sisters.  We checked out a new tea room, lunched, went to the movie, people watched at the mall, had a massage and spent time catching up on each others lives. 
I was feeling pretty special and luckily had no clue as to what would happen next.
Remember that saying "When one door closes another door opens".  While the door may not have closed, more like I just got locked out, it has come at just the precise moment.  Right now there is a wonderful new "top secret" project that I now have the time to work on with my wildly talented friend Heather at Dragonfly Lampworks.  I'll let you know when the big reveal happens...wink...wink. ;-p
