Hi Ladies, How is your day going? I must tell you that it has been in the high 70's here and all the fruit trees are blooming like mad. It is positively gorgeous. I read my sons weather report for Nj and looks like snow there. lol. I think it is called a northeasterner or some such thing. I went to church. I am going again tonight. Otherwise

MaryAnne, yes, we northeasterners did get quite the storm yesterday! I have about 17" of snow on my front lawn right now!

The cake sounds delicious - I was drooling while reading your description. My baking and pastry arts major (18dd) made some brownie concoction thing last night. I have the flu so I couldn't even taste it! lol - very disappointing. At least tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I'm guaranteed some decent cholocate from H!

Your pre-teen dd sounds so cute....'don't buy anything for old people' - how funny! Yes, Claires is the big thing. My dds (16 & 18) STILL buy stuff there. We bought all of 18dd's hair accessories and jewelry for the prom there last year - she looked stunning. They have really nice stuff, and then they also have a lot of crap. Typical teeny bopper store.

Like I said, I have the flu, so it's better if I don't comment on how my day's going. At least I'm on meds and getting better.

Have a good one!

Hi mothertoboys, I can see where that show would have someone wondering what happens next. lol. That's how they keep people watching it. I myself have never seen it but I have a wierd schedule. I did as you suggested and just put some nuts on top of the cake for decorations. Thankyou for the suggestion. I am not sure how pleased I am with the results. We seem to be our own worse critics. But if they enjoy it, that is what matters. My work schedule does not leave me a whole lot of time for watching shows. I think I do it more on vacation then any other time. I agree if it is going to snow it should be worth while. lol. It does not snow here only once it did.

Hi mothertoboys, I won the baking contest. I got a gift certificate for WalMart. All the desserts were excellent. Everyone really put a lot effort in to making them good. I heard the next day that my cake was gone by the PM shift and went really fast. lol. Well, I have one day off, or rather I did until I got called to work at a sister facility so that is no days off. lol. I am thinking I will never get to relax and read my '' Philidelphia'' magazine. lol. I put in a for a few vacation days for March to go to Los Angeles as 2 more of my grandchilden are turning 12 . The 3 12 yr olds were born within a months time so I always say 94 was a a productive year. lol. I remember getting 2 grandaughters in 2 weeks and 2 weeks following got another grandson. It was a fun time for me. So what are you doing these days? Take care. MaryAnne

This place, Claires, is for preteens and they are obviously making money.
