I’m sorry, really I am.
I have been so lazy lately. Especially when it comes to blogging.

This week is going to be crazy though. I’m excited. Valentines Day is coming.
Getting ready for our annual Valentine Tea Party will keep me busy this week. I’ve been planning out the dessert menu today. (That is my favourite part.) And I’m thinking about the craft too. I hope I can find everything for that.
The tea party is on Saturday.

There is craziness going on on Sunday too. Which is also exciting. I’m having some friends over and we’re making tamales and doughnuts. Oui, somewhat at the same time. So, I’ll be getting everything ready for that too this week. Last time I made doughnuts, Bell made them with me. That was the best. Here are a few doughnut pictures from October last year.
(Yeah, it’s 2011. I still think that’s crazy.)

I’ll try to keep up with this blogging stuff better.
And not just listen to Talain Rayne and Blue October all day. (Merci Bell.)

Guys, don’t forget:

     Life has been crazy, busy, fun.  Yesterday I started the day early.  I cleaned the house, scrubbed the floors (even though I knew they would get dirty later), washed dished, did laundry, and  nearly finished the dress I started sewing the night before.  What fun.  I, honestly, love scrubbing our kitchen floor. And of course, sewing is a favourite. After all that the real fun began…Tamales! Yes, some friends came over and we made tamales. Loads and loads of them. It was so warm in this kitchen. Not the most ideal weather to be making tamales in but….It was so much fun. I had never made them before. I officially love tamales. Homemade are just so delicious too. I ate so much last night…I couldn’t stop. And for dessert I served up some homemade frozen yogurt with fresh raspberries and blueberries on top. I’ve had fun trying out the whole frozen yogurt thing. Creamy, cold, refreshing, and sweet goodness. It is so nice on these amazingly hot days. It melts very fast though…

     There is more excitement to come.  Tonight the family is going out to dinner for My sister, Alyssas’, birthday.  Italian food.  Joy.  (I think it is a tad tragic that I love good food so much.)  Tomorrow will be an adventure.  I’ll be off to the zoo with a handful of little kiddos.  And I hear we are to break a record and most likely hit 100 degrees.  I might melt but I am very excited.  I haven’t been to the zoo in so many years. 

     Hurrah for summer fun!
