Random Friday

Hi blog friends! Happy Friday to you :-)

Today, the little girl I nanny for wanted to make cupcakes. Now I do not consider myself a baker by any means. I can make great brownies and bake the cake (thanks to the directions on the back of the box), but when it comes to icing anything, I'm TERRIBLE. Thank goodness she only wanted to icing 6 of the cupcakes lol. Here's the final product. Please don't be harsh :-( I'm learning! My skills are no where near those of Kelly's. (She can decorate a cake or cookie like nobody I know! I'm jealous of your skills miss!)

Regardless of the way they look, they were delicious! I let her put the sprinkles on them so that's why some have way more then others lol. And we had fun baking them so that's all that matters. I love my job :-)

Speaking of nannies, did you hear about the incredible 22 yr old nanny who saved the 5 yr old boy from the burning house? Talk about being a hero. The little boy was not hurt but the nanny did suffer burns. Read the article here.

Tonight, I'm having a "me" night. A night where I relax, worry about nothing, watch a movie and just enjoy time by myself. I enjoy these nights. During the week I'm at work with two crazy, but wonderful little girls, school, and I feel like I'm missing quiet right now lol. The bf is at school and since I work again tomorrow night, I couldn't go see him this weekend. It's the perfect night for a "me" night. Plus, the weather is crappy right now. Cold (45* and rainy).

atleast tonight anyway!

Do you enjoy "me" time? If so, what do you during that time? Or how do you relax in general? Any fun plans for the weekend?

Cupcakes look great. I love sprinkles!!
I do enjoy having "me" time sometimes. I have a lot of it this weekend since hubs is away camping, but I miss him not being home. I wish he could camp all day then come home at night!!

Tonight I will spend some time working on my aunts blog and watching movies! Enjoy your Friday!

Hey Dear! I wish you could come hang out with me. I just got home from a class tonight. You can go read on my blog about it. I bet your little girls that you watch are adorable. I spend tons of quiet me time. It's how I keep my sanity.

Me time is a rarity these days. I hope you enjoyed yours enough for the both of us.

Oh, and I am a terrible baker. So your cupcakes are highly impressive to me.

I love the nights I get the house to myself. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, I always rent a chick flick, order sushi to go, start a fire and open a bottle of wine. Ahhhh so relaxing.
