Not Very Good Cupcakes

I discovered that I’m pretty terrible at making cupcakes. I just assumed it was a natural trait but no, it isn’t. I made some, and they were awful. I started out ambitious. I was going to make cupcakes for a friend’s party, but I would make them horse themed. I looked up horse themed cupcakes, […]

Fantasy Farms

I was browsing around some farms in the event that we decide to move and I just kept increasing the price until I was looking at the most gorgeous farms. The magnificent homes, the expansive properties and of course, the amazing equestrian facilities. All things to drool over.  That evolved into one of my favorite […]

And Back to Tennessee

We had so much fun the last time, we headed down again to see family, and spend some time doing the touristy things. The baby didn’t get to meet all of the family the first trip down, so that was a priority this time! After family time, we went to the Hollywood Wax Museum in […]
