I haven’t been able to post all week (or even have any scheduled posts run) but I was determined to get something out before the week is over! So I know it’s not friday, it’s Saturday night in B.C. well, it’s so late, it’s basically Sunday morning, but just ignore this fact.
I had a lot of goings on this week! We kicked out a mere 400 cupcakes this week. I know, pathetic right? Bahahaha! CRAZY!! We are so busy and so lucky and so fortunate! Thank you to every single person who orders a cupcake, a cake, a cookie, a crumb from us . . . we appreciate every single person that does.
I am also very fortunate this week for all of the helpers that we had in order to get the 400 cupcakes baked, iced, decorated and out the door! Oh yes, and there was also a wedding cake in there somewhere!
This week was also a special week because a very special cousin of mine (the youngest cousin I have) is having her Sweet Sixteenth birthday. Months ago, I promised her that I would take her to her favourite singer, Taylor Swift’s, concert in Edmonton. But, now that the bakery is in full swing, I had no idea how I was going to deal with the eight hour drive, there and back, just for the one night. My uncle, knowing this, totally bailed me out and flew me to Calgary. I still had to drive to Edmonton and back, but I had Leah with me for company. I was super appreciative of this! Leah and I busted out T Swift songs the whole way there and back. Lots of fun . . . especially when you’re 16! Or 32.
INSERT SLEEP HERE
So now it is Sunday….this post keeps taking longer and longer! But I’m determined to get it done!
Today Paul and I went out and went on a hike…that I will post about later…and despite our late start, it was great to get out! I’m going to be sore tomorrow, but it lets me know that I worked hard physically! There’s nothing like those endorphins.
Tonight, I am working on posts for the week . . . I have about 100 pictures to go through and edit for posts . . . until then . . . happy baking!
