I've got a job!.  It's an amazing opportunity and I just couldn't pass it up.  I get to work 3 days a week (my choice), and 9-3.  The best part is that it's so close to home.  I had my first day today and it went very well.  I think it's a perfect fit. 

It's amazing how things happen even when you're not looking. 

Lilah did very well today without me for the day.  I'm very proud of her.

1 Year old

And just like that.......She was 1!!!.  :(

Cake cake cake!!!

Not sure if I've mentioned this previously, but I'm attending an 8 week butter cream cake class.  It's every Wednesday night for 2 hours.  We have to bake our cake beforehand and make up our butter cream and bring all this to class.  The entire 2 hours is spent just decorating the cake.  The hardest part about this is to NOT eat the cake!!.  Trying to watch your weight and attending a cake class isn't the easiest thing!. 

I've done 2 cakes thus far and have learnt quite a bit.  I am really enjoying it.  I'm enjoying it so much in fact that I have also signed up for the "comprehensive" course that starts next year.  This is a 12 term course (so it will take 3 yrs to complete) that teaches us how to make the flowers etc that you see on wedding cakes.  That's really what I wanted to learn but thought I would start off with this Basic butter cream class to learn the basics about pipping etc. 

As you know, Lilah will be 1 on Friday the 22nd of October.  I have to make 3 cakes next week!.  1 for my cake class on Wednesday, 1 for Friday and another for her birthday party on Sunday.  I'm going to be busy baking and utilizing my oven!.  I'm sort of looking forward to it though because it will give me lots of practice. 

Once I get organized enough I will get some photos on here of the cakes I've done.  It's a good start for someone who has never decorated a cake before. 


It's been a while since i've blogged, and there is so much going on right now but I just can't seem to find the words to write. 

The best news i've heard in a while is that my Grandma had her surgery and all went well.  PHEW...HUGE relief.  I'm so thankful that we still have her and she's doing well.  I'm hoping for a speedy recovery for her and I can't wait to talk to her again once shes home from the hospital.

So onto the title of this post.  Eve's starting school next Feb.  She will be attending a primary school close by our home.  She may be ready but I am not!.  I have received a letter from the school this week indicating her orientation days.  It just sank in when I saw that letter that my baby will be going to school soon!.  Also, Lilah turning 1 in less than a week doesn't help either.  It saddens me to know that my babies are growing up...but makes me happy to see them grow and see them flourish into little people with their own personalities.
