VDay Tuesday

Happy Valentine's Day!

So Shred didn't get done again yesterday.  I don't know what it is about the exercising that I just can't get back into.  I have the 5.6 mile Climb for Cancer (hike) coming up on  February 25th and I'm hoping I don't die.  Hubby has decided he's not quite ready for it but that's alright.  I don't mind doing it by myself.  My BFF actually signed up for it months ago and is doing it with someone she works with.  This is same BFF who did the 3 Day with me.  She's a bit of a power walker so we'll probably start the hike together but I'm more of a stroller by nature.   Either way, gotta get more active.

Started shopping for another cake production yesterday.  One of my oldest friend's son is turning 4 and his party is this weekend.  I volunteered to make a Ferris Wheel cake for him.  I think it's gonna look awesome.  I'm changing it up from the pic she gave me just a bit as the inspiration cake is fairly small and I want people to actually be able to eat the cake and not have to make a bunch of cupcakes for people instead.  Similar to the laptop cake, it involves making something stand up but now I have experience in that so I think I can make it happen. LOL.    It's the first time I've made a cake for someone other than my girls so I'm a little nervous that she won't like it or it won't turn out just right.  Will be sure to post pics after the party.

Before I forget, I wanted to send a message out to Chloe at Chloe's Countdown...  I'm not sure if you follow me but I can't comment on your blog!  You may need to change your settings to not have embedded comments...I know a lot of bloggers had to do that.  I just wanted to make a suggestion for your daughter needing to gain weight.  I know they make shakes specifically for that.  My brother had to use them years ago when he was on the high school wrestling team (these days, he has no problem putting on the weight).  I'm sure they've become tastier since then too.  Try checking out GNC or HiHealth (not sure what's near you).  I'm sure they'll have something similar.  Good luck!

Tonight, Hubby and I are sticking with our regular VDay tradition (see this post for details) by enjoying a fancy meal at Taco Bell with girls.  I know it sounds silly but we're a silly group.  Hubby and I have agreed on no cards, gifts, flowers, ANYTHING today.  We had our date night 2 weeks ago and are going out this Friday as well.  We don't need to be spending money on anything else.  He loves me, I love him, blah, blah, blah.  So that sums up my day.  I'll leave you with a little laugh on this Valentine's Day and a reminder that if you DON'T share how you feel with the ones you love on a daily, weekly, monthly basis, by all means use this day as a day to do so.
