So, other than wanting to post about recent ought to give everything to God, since every time you do you will probably be blessed eventually. Life has changed allot for me, so has my heart. Things have happened that are so...blessful(can i use that?) that all i CAN do is thank the Lord. Now, there have been some bad things...but not all of them are bad. Just a few. It is how I am trying soo hard to look at it. Not saying I am a saint and looking at everything like it is hunky-dorie and lollipops, just saying I am forcing myself to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Anyhoo. So today we had an oven fire. All due to a cheesecake leak! Yeesh, so my pizza tastes smokey and my mom's pizza is totally soaked from the water I so quickly sprayed on it. My poor dad can't leave for hunting and come back without SOMETHING dramatic happening!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I work. Cheers to the freakin' weekend? Luckily I get to perform saturday and sunday and be at the bridge lighting in Sumner after some crazy work!

HAPPY happy thanksgiving ya'll!

long long long long long...

Hello all!

Today was like the never ending story...that just ended. don't know how that works, but it just does tonight lol. I went to work and every customer was really odd and off today. just...grumpy and not awesome at all. except my regulars, they are always awesome.
here are some pics of how much i baked today, i made buttercream, pumpkin cake, and cranberry white chocolate cookies! truly a therapy! i don't know what i would do without it. I guess that somewhere it is said that being a pastry chef is one of the most relaxing careers out there, not surprising!

and to finnish everything off!...some cuddles from my doggy and chai tea! goodnight all :)

Nothing to do on a rainy day...

So, there is absolutely nothing to do today...i feel. My mom already had her photoshoot and there was supposed to be another one, but the lady never even showed up! At least she can play with her new camera body before the shoot, i suppose!

So she got a new camera, right? well, my dad found it first, and he decided to smash up a box and pretend that the shipper person smashed her camera and obliterated it. So he came in and told her and she was almost in tears when he showed her! He is seriously mean sometimes.

The other day I was looking on my dad's desk for something and he had put his library card(which he never uses) on the desk...BOY oh boy...this reminded me of being like 7 years old!
I sometimes wish i could go back to being 7, that was my favorite age..But i know i can't. Life does move on, doesn't it?!

Have a great day, to all who read this!

foggy fun times!

so this morning my mom needed help with her photoshoot.
so i was obviously happy to do so! but she needed to do some test shots first!
they turned out SO COOL. makes me want to be a photographer. but i'm obviously not passionate enough about it so i wouldn't be as awesome as she is. kind of like my cooking....jk.
i'm super stoked, i have 4 cakes over the next couple of months. the beetlejuice one is what i am really excited for. i already have a zillion-upon-a-million ideas going through my head!

Mr. Sloppy Joe...

Hello all!

So i have learned a few things about myself the past few days...
1.) i am impatient.
2.) i am poor(kind of already knew that)
3.) i don't find joy in the little things anymore....
and so on and so forth! I think i am on the right track to being the true Ciara again, though. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside! lol..

Today wasn't eventful, till i got off work. I went home and thought i was going to just bake to fill an order. But alas Christina had other plans. We went out to go to the mall to get her some jeans and to the grocery store, but got stuck in traffic for an hour...then i got called for an interview!!! And.....

Nailed it!

So i am now a personal assistant/insurance agent's assistant. I have the hugest, largest, most ginormous load lifted off of my back! God is soo good to me.

I thought i would share what i made for dinner tonight and a good lil pic of the cookies i made! :)

Sloppy Joes :) the best non-burger out there!!!

cranberry cookies....without white chocolate drizzle! lol

my poochie at the end of a long day of deciding she didn't need to pee outside.....oh doggy.
