Cup the Cakes

So, I’ve never been a Julia Roberts or Duff at cooking or baking. I still till this day burn Mac & Cheese. I can however make a mean bowl of cereal * Eyebrow raising.*

My grandmother however is the best southern style cook. God bless her soul, she took the time tonight to help me make my first batch of CUPCAKES.

And to my surprise, I did an excellent job… I’m super proud of myself. No, I don’t think I’m ready to step up to making Mac & Cheese just yet. However, I will try making a cake in another week.

Here are some clips of my success 🙂

Why I don’t leave the house!!!

Okay, this is the reason I don’t leave the house. I was at walmart shopping. Went to the car to load the bags. Started the car and popped the trunk. (Car is running). So I was loading the bags into the trunk and this lady in the next car shuts my car door to get into her car. I don’t flip out (Cause the keys are in the car.. and the car is on) So,I finish putting the bags away and close the trunk. I go to open the door and WTF? its locked. So, I am standing outside w/ no coat, It’s 25degrees outside and the wind is blowing.I look in the window and my purse with my wallet and my jacket are sitting on the seat looking at me laughing… Ugh,I called the fire department thinking they might come out because the car was running and locked, but the only come out when a child is in the car.So, Then I called home and to make it worst It takes 1hr  for someone to come help me. I don’t want to leave the car running, but I was cold and needed to get warm. I go back inside of walmart to wait. I WAS PISSED!!  Ugh I was cold, and crying and ready to go home. Finally, my family arrives. So we are trying to unlock the car.. but it has air bags UGH !!! So, This guys  goes thru the windshield (Don’t ask) Anyway, we get the window down. I get in the car about to drive away and look up. :( THE f**king WINDSHIELD IS BUSTED)… And to make it worse.. ITS NOT MY CAR!!!! my sister switched cars with me. OMG.. this is why I don’t leave the house.

Here is the damage …. It’s only $150 to fix… but I wish we had a spare key… Well now we have spares to all the cars !! HAHAHA

Passionate Ties

Emma Winters has always had a fascination—and a secret longing for a wild man. It doesn’t take much prodding from her best friend’s to throw caution to the wind. The chance to get away from it all and relax is just what she’s been craving. Meeting Blake at Zodiac starts cravings of another kind. Blake’s one hot hunk of ripped tasty male, now she has to deal with raging hormones

 

The last thing she needs is to get involved again, especially with a guy who’s hiding something. Despite her vow to avoid him, her resolve is shredded every time he crosses her path.

 

Blake Newman had just become second in command to his new alpha and best friend Jerome Richardson. They went to take care of a Pack problem in Jerome’s old town. He never wanted a mate—until he meets the one woman that could change his mind. He is blindsided by his intense attraction to Emma. He wasn’t planning on meeting the woman destined to be his mate, or finding out she’s not aware she has the genes of a wolf.

 

One night with Emma leaves Blake hungry for more, and he senses the feeling is mutual. His instincts tell him Emma won’t be satisfied until she’s unearthed all his secrets. He’d like nothing more than to reveal every last part of himself to her. The question is whether she can handle it, once she knows everything, will she back away.
