So where have I been?

Life has gotten in the way of this blog to be honest. Life meaning small group last Tuesday night and we get home at 9pm then its putting Caleb to bed. Wednesday night it was date night, Blaze Pizza then Menchie's frozen yogurt (conclusion: Yogurtland is still the BEST frozen yogurt) then watching the movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Have you seen it? You should. If you have seen the Royal Tenebaums or Life Aquatic, you need to see The Grand Budapest Hotel. Then I just felt that I couldn't have a random Friday post. So yes... life. 

This week is gonna be a busy one. 
Sean's 30th birthday is tomorrow. That means a red velvet cake. Then Friday I am baking a birthday cake for a friend's daughter's 2nd birthday. A cake for 40 people and the cake is the ONLY food being served at the party. Yuuup. So there's that on top of being a mom, a wife and also I started at 5am, I call it my 5 at 5, 5 miles at 5am. For the two days that I accomplished this last week, they were two cup of coffee days. I foresee a lot of coffee in my future. 

Today I am linking up to Ember Grey's a Grateful Heart link up today. 

What am I most grateful for? Second chances and forgiveness.

Grateful Heart Monday w/ Ember Grey

Will I share my cake baking experiences this week? 
My blog wouldn't be my blog if there wasn't a sweet treat recipe at least once a week.

What are you grateful for today?

Do you take Caleb with you when you go running or is he still sleeping? I'm hoping to join the gym again soon! I was thinking about trying to do the Turkey Trot 5K this Thanksgiving.
