How stressful are finals?

I can honestly say that I hate this time of the semester. I feel like every single thing from projects to papers is due or there's major studying to be done. That's how it is right now for me. I have a major paper due tomorrow morning and then two tests right after it! It's a little annoying. It's like these professors expect that their class is the only class you're taking. Haha. On top of all that, I have to commute back home, which takes only about an hour and a half, then get ready for my job's annual Holiday Party! I won't have time to nap so I know I'm going to be so exhausted! Oh stress! You're killing me! So much so that my skin has begun to break out again for the 50th time this year!

I'm in the middle of writing my paper and I got sidetracked (of course I did!) and for some odd reason I'm now thinking about what I should wear to this party tomorrow! I can't decide whether or not I should wear a dress, a skirt, or pants. What do you guys think? I think it's going to be like 31 degrees tomorrow evening. I also still haven't gone out to get a present for our exchange gift! Maybe I can ask my sisters to quickly grab something for me. Haha. Man, so many things going through my head! SOMEONE MAKE IT STOP! Haha. It's ok... I just have to remember that after tomorrow, it'll be smooth sailing!

I guess I should get back to work! I'll try to post up some pictures from the party on Sunday. Trust me, my boss' house is a must see! But before I go, I leave you with this little booger.

Someone wanted me to play and not work. Haha

Oh, before I forget. Happy Birthday to my cousin Joyce!! She would have been 30 years old today. I miss you very much. I hope you're happy and watching over me with Jay-R especially at this time. RIP.

I almost forgot to tell you guys that I'm totally in love right now with two guys!! They're both really hot and sexy!!

Apolo Anton Ohno


Adam Levine

Who would you guys choose?!


And I'm back!

I'm currently procrastinating and decided to blog again like I said I would!

Before I get any further, I'd like to wish my sister Peejay a BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you were really surprised at the party, otherwise you're getting better at acting/lying! Haha! (*uhhh uhh... MOVIES!* HAHA!)

My sister's birthday always falls on Thanksgiving and we never really get to celebrate it. So this year, it actually fell on a Saturday! Woohoo! With very last minute planning and invites, my other sister Pam and my cousin Aimee were able to conjure up a surprise party in her honor. Now I've always talked about trying to bake a cake from scratch and wanting to use fondant so I volunteered myself to bake the cake for the party. At the time it was a great idea! Little did I know I would get deathly ill on that day! With a huge headache and lack of sleep, I snuck out of the house early and went to my best friend's house to bake the cake. Boy, it was a lot of fun making that cake....YEAH RIGHT! My eyes were so watery and I just kept sneezing everywhere! Good thing I brought along with me a bunch of masks and gloves. I know I work in the health field, but it's really hard to bake with gloves and a mask on. I actually felt like I was performing some type of surgery. Haha.

Anyway, it took me a total of 3 hours to make this cake because I was having trouble with the fondant. The shapes and letters weren't coming out the way I wanted them to and it was just frustrating. I guess I just need to read more about fondant and figure out how Duff from Ace of Cakes does it. He makes it look so darn easy. Haha. Oh! And it's a Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Icing!


The next couple of pictures are laughable. Remember that this is my first time using fondant and have absolutely no creativity/imagination when it comes to decorating. HAHA. I also have to apologize for the quality of the pictures. Most of them were taken on my phone.

Mixing up the batter. I feel like I used a lot of red food coloring cause it was bright red! Haha

While the cake was in the oven, I got started on the fondant. I bought white fondant and made it yellow cause it's Peejay's favorite color. I don't know if you notice it, but those are my gloves on the upper left. Haha!

And here are some of the fondant cutouts I made.

I also made the icing color yellow hoping it would look all fun! That's my best friend's brother helping me smooth out the icing that sort of looked like cheese. Haha.

And the cutouts are on! LOL!! It's not very creative like I said, but it was the best I could do with the condition I was in.

The end product. Candles and all!

I think everyone enjoyed it. I hope! Haha

And that's it for my baking story. I'm actually excited to attempt it again, but I have to wait until this semester is done. I have so much planned for after school is done and I just can't wait to do all those projects! Well I should get back to work. Till next time...


Hey guys!

I feel so ashamed for neglecting my poor little blog. I haven't updated since Halloween! It's like I totally skipped November! I do have to admit though that I have posted some blogs up, but either I never finished a post or just kept it private. So, sorry! Hope this new "layout" makes up for something.

I've been seeing everyone change their blogs because of the upcoming holiday and got a bit jealous and decided to do the same featuring the one and only Simba baby <3. Ain't he just precious? I love him so much! Haha. I don't know why, but this season I've definitely been feeling more Christmasy than ever before. I'm enjoying the decorations and the Christmas music. If I had my own place, I would definitely go crazy with decorations and have my very own Holiday dinner. One day I will. As of now, I'm just trying to finish up the semester (more like this week...) then I'll start and finish up my shopping. I have so many ideas for gifts, but no money and right now, no time either. So sad! Haha.

Well, I have lots to do and need to get some rest! I'm going to try to post tomorrow and show you guys my baking skills...or lack thereof. Haha. Here's a little preview...
