So i went to Jessica's house about a week ago. And i stayed for a few days! It was awsome. We had lots of fun. We arrived in utah and we went to the outlets --also my mother and carly were there-- and we got lots of stuff. And then we went to Wyoming...haha but just for about 5 minutes! And then the next day we --carly my mom and me-- went to the "Accessory Shop" and i got a lot of jewelry. And then we just hung out for a few more days and it was a blast! I cant wait to do it again. ^_^
Well Mr. Poodle is gonna be my new perm that i am getting today! Well it's a sponge perm where i can get it straighten if i want it --very easily-- or i can have it curly and shape it. I hope it looks good. Oh and school starts Monday!! Very exciting. I will post my perm pictures later! [[:
Well, i have been thinking about my broken ankle..and i figured that it is a blessing in a way. It might sound crazy but it's true..I thought it was a nightmare at first but now...well. I relized that it was helping me through this summer relize that if i didnt get it i would still do what i do now! --eat junk food, stay lazy, and do absolutely nothing.-- If i didnt get it then i would still do that with two working ankles..But since it did happen i am going to go be active alot more!!! I will cherish my ankle. Haha just kidding. but i will make sure that i appreciate it. Also my summer has been a big blob! B-O-R-I-N-G! I have only two weeks left without my cast...i have to spend it wisely. One week of it i will be with jessica!! But with the other i week i dont know. Any ideas?
***CAST UPDATE*** I GET IT OFF TODAY!!!!!! YAY! [[:
Alright so im not really that good at doing cakes at all. I always get the cakes broken and bleh...But i went to mutual last night and we learned about cake decorating, and we did fondant on our cakes. Although it was already made. i learned how to make roses from fondant, and so then i decided maybe i would make a cake today. So i made the marshmallow fondant --sticky icky and bleh-- my hands are so gross from it. But last night when i did the fondant i had a chocolate cake and white fondant on it and then a white rose on top with a pink icing around the cake. (pictures to come) when i made it this morning the cakes turned out alright until i got the bigger one out of the pan.
It had ripped and was all weird shaped. So i had a little-er one and so i tried with that.. By the way the fondant did turn out *fabulous* by the end.. So i got it into shape and splatted it on the cake! i missed by at least an inch. So i cut it to make it even and the frosting that i frosted it --there was WAYY to much-- and it blurted out of the bottom. Dang! Well here are pictures of me kneading the fondant and the cakes. I would post how the cake turned out except that im embarrassed! [: well better luck next time!
Oh my...so i looked up the recipe for "brown bread" thinking it would just be brown and taste a little different. Well i found this brown bread recipe and my my my is it delicious! I cant say that it is healthy or unhealthy because i honestly dont know. I think it tastes kinda a little bit like cinnamon bread, but i cant tell. All i can really tell you is that i love this bread alot. You may have tasted it before, made it, have it i dont know.. But it is so delicious. Try it! This recipe doesnt make a very big batch at all though...i would try doubling it or even tripling it. But here ya go. --even if nobody asked me for it i want to post it-- [:
