Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

This week was one of those weeks that flew by and I'm ever so grateful for... however my insurance company is probably spitting nickels on all the claims that will be turned in... OH WELL...
Yesterday I broke down and went to the Chiropractor.. I had to.. nothing was really doing much for the pain.. and when it was painful to brush my own teeth... it wasn't flying for me!

However.. my friend asked me last week ( before my mouth situation) if I would make a cake for a baby shower.. I told her I would.. she called me later in the week to let me know that there wasn't going to be a great amount of people there ( her work).. so I asked if we could go with cupcakes instead... She agreed.. the theme for the baby was Fairies... UGh.. I don't like fairy stuff.. ( sorry if you do..Ü) So I found little fairies at the dollar tree and used those to top some of the cupcakes... and the rest I made chocolate butterflies...

I have come to learn... I am NO chocolatier!!! I struggled making these and I have to tell you.. I hated making these.. ( I won't tell my friend that.. cause I love doing things for my friends) They didn't come out the way I wanted them too.. but I also didn't have the right color chocolates either.. and with my pain.. I couldn't drive a few hours to get them either!! :( Although I was VERY close to calling Pugposse ( Lisa) to see if she wanted to take a ride.. but then I fretted that I wouldn't be any fun with pain.. UGH!!

So here are the cupcakes...





Here's the book I'm trying to read when I can get comfortable.. reading has been slow this week.. I've watched some mindless TV shows... that's for sure!!


Well it's suppose to be in the 90's this weekend... so I'll be sitting by a pool hopefully reading... and weeding my garden that I haven't peeked at all week!! and making window boxes for my house!!! YEE HAA!!
So what ever you're doing this weekend.. HAVE FUN.. STAY COOL... and Love those around you!!!

Girlfriend, you are crazy to think you don't have some amazing talent in the chocolate department. The butterflies are gorgeous! The whole bunch of them were really great! Sorry you are still in pain. I posted a clip of my fave song from the Stellar Kart CD you recommended for my son's b-day. Thanks again! We all love it.

The butterflies are actually too cute! They are so detailed so I can see what a pain they must have been. Speaking of pain, I hope your pain is lessening.
