Ghost Cupcakes

How stinking CUTE is that????

I am not sure what I was thinking when I said "Oh yeah I make cakes, I can totally make the cupcakes for the class Halloween party and be in charge of one of the games (more on that later)."  But I did say that so I decided to keep it simple and do 24 all the same and just do these ghost because they were quick and easy to do.    Seriously though, sometimes I think I forget that I have a crazy baby who gets into EVERYTHING (he discovered the stairs this week), children who need CONSTANT attention ("Mommy I am hungry, Mommy I need help, Mommy I have to be in the same room as you at all times... don't even try to go to the bathroom"), and a house to clean (whole cow, we are now to the point that if I don't do at least two loads of dishes every day I get seriously behind).  I think I need to starting editing the things I do and not just always saying "Oh yeah I can do that."  The problem is that I want to do that.  I want to create.  I want to do fun things with my kids.  I want to say "Oh yeah, I can do that."  

Hmmm...  Isn't this the problem every adult faces.  Balancing what I have to do with what I want to do and making sure I can find joy in both places.

I am not sure how a post about a cute little cupcake turned into my struggles with balance, but there you have it.   Maybe it just because it is after 11pm I still have more dishes and laundry to do before I go to bed and I am on my computer typing about a cupcake while Project Runway plays in the background because that is what I want to be doing.  


  1. Everyone needs the same thing- a place that is theirs, something that we love- and especially moms need something that STAYS done! (at least I do.!) You're not alone. And, it will get easier, and eventually more time will come to do more of what we want to do- in the mean time- hang in there! ;)

  2. That is to stinking cute! Love them!

  3. I think it just looks very, very cool, and I am sure hands on replica watches uk will reveal more about the execution. A creative solution, and one that ends up being an aesthetically pleasing design. To top off the presentation, the rado replica sale comes in a 2018 replica watches speaker case done in leather designed to resemble a roadie trunk and serve as a replica watches to Kravitz roots in music. The dial uses the same colour coordination as the standard two tone so what ever prejudices against the kravitz version applies to the standard model. It is also more legible than the standard bezel which is what you want for a tool watch. Only the hublot replica unitsper spoils the effect. Because of two rolex replica uk the visual aesthetic has changed with colours and band, whilst the strap creates a whole new facade, tone replica watches sale on the arm.
