A person who loves you is someone who sees the pain in your eyes, while everyone else believes the smile on your face….

Tomorrow will be a rainy day…making me blue….wishing there was something more…that I could do….

My hands are tied….I feel the system lied….to much time to bide…and then I cried!

Somebody needs a hug….

141st Kentucky Derby – Do you have a favorite to win?

So today is the Kentucky Derby – lot’s of talk about this going on even at work.  There are derby parties in Michigan where some of our associates are actually going to a race track in Detroit to watch the derby and party at the same time.  I share some moderate interest in the Derby as I like to watch the horses and make predictions but this year I was a bit intrigued by the name of a particular horse as well.


Frosted is currently slated with 15 – 1 odds and is in gate 15 (for some reason I would have a better feeling if it were gate 14 – oh well).  With a tiny bit of research I was able to determine that my interest in the horse (because of the name)…come on we all know you can’t have a cupcake without frosting (a.k.a. icing) and well when I found out that this horse is actually named after a baking reference  – his mother was Fast Cookie this fact further solidified my decision to pick Frosted for the win.  As always there are tons of opinions surrounding who will win and the why behind it.  With limited experience on how to choose a winning horse I rely on sheer statistical instinct (LOL – still studying for that darn Stats Exam), basic likability of the name and well just PURE DARN LUCK!

If you have time check out this blog for some very extensive tips on selecting a Derby HAT  – this is an important factor if you are actually attending the Derby in person.  Here is my favorite hat for 2015!

Cheers – to FROSTED with a mint julep this evening!

Yes the Derby has CupCakes TOO!!! – (Hats, CupCakes, High Heels and being outside)  It’s only missing the beach, but what a fantastic time especially on a beautiful day!

Friday Craving

It’s Friday, and I’m HAPPY but I am really having a craving.  Not just any craving, I am craving a super duper icing fix.  I mean like a Gigi’s topped extraordinary abundant over the top icing to cake ratio off the charts craving.  Here is what I am talking about….I will get over it and have to do some hardcore exercising if I do indulge in this but thought I would share.

I think it’s time for

So, we have all heard the saying when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  I prefer a vodka tonic with a twist but that is a story for another time.  If you find yourself experiencing some challenges remember that these are what shapes you into the person you are and will become….

Flashback Friday……..

So after a week of fun at work I had a flashback….and wow it made me think of this old commercial.  Do any of you ever feel like this at the end of the day or week?  I feel a bit like I have been turning my wheels yet without a lot of traction.  Sort of like my car acted on Tuesday in the parking lot at work.  I was stuck IN my parking space for about an hour sitting on ice and not going anywhere fast.  I managed to do a conference call.  Return some calls.  Answer emails.  For being stuck in the parking spot it was a rather productive hour, but at the end of the week I am feeling a bit like this video.

So after watching this and laughing at the memories it brings back I am looking a bit forward to tomorrow.  FRIDAY HELLO!!!
