I'm really afraid I might chase some of ya'll away from my blog because it has just been so negative lately. (no kiddin) Ya'll please don't leave me. (haha) I picked the Honda up Tuesday and paid, yep, you guessed it $500.00 for the newest repair (window) and today I noticed my check engine light was on again. I am determined not to let it get me down. I am already close to my breaking point. Buddy's truck has been making a very strange sound. We have new model Toyota and Honda vehicles and we take very good care of them so I am baffled as to why we seem to be having such bad luck with them all of a sudden. Anyway, I will focus my attention the upcoming Holiday season and on my girls upcoming birthday party. We are going to ASF tomorrow night with the kids to see A Christmas Carol the Musical. I am looking forward to that. It will be Lily's first play in an actual Theatre so I am a tiny bit nervous. She did great at the Ballet when we took her a few weeks back so hopefully she will do fine. And speaking of Lily's party, I was able to get some things accomplished on my day off. I am making the cupcake stand and am nearly finished. This will be the first year without having a cake. But it is a"Pinkalicious" party so cupcakes are a must right? I even thought about doing a cake in addition just for the sake of having one but I decided to just go with the cupcakes and make the presentation grand. I still have some more work to do on it. I am going to add some ribbon and some tiny sparkles. The top cupcake will have the same tiny tiara sitting on top of it that was sitting on top of her very first birthday cake.
