So what's been keeping me so busy?
If you all remember the last Shuttle flight I told you about, well it is finally over and I got my real life back! It was such an amazing experience to be a lead planner for the flight, but I am so glad to move onto the next big project at work...and home.
I made some treats for my busy co-workers, including these super-cute mini Fluffernutter cupcakes...
I also made the hubbie some of Julia Child's famous Beef Bourguignon, he love love loved it!
After I got my life back from work, the hubby and I went to Europe for a few weeks on vacation! We had an amazing time eating and drinking all over Belgium, Germany, and France.
I also talked the hubbie into taking a macaron class with me in Paris, it was one of the best experiences on the entire trip and I cannot wait to share my real french pastry chef tips!
Right after I got back from Europe I headed home to St. Louis for a much needed visit with my mom and grandma!
While I was gone I missed my blog anniversary :-( We will just have to celebrate later! I also received a few awards from some of my favorite fellow bloggers. The Stylish Blogger Award from Becky at Baking and Cooking, A Tale of Two Loves who will be holding an online Bake Sale for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life, go check her out!
The One Lovely Blog Award and Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award from Toni at Boulder Locavore, who just posted on how to bake and assemble a real smoking volcano cake, go Toni!
Now I am back and in action. Lots of stuff going on at home this week...the Astros home opener AND my hubbie's birthday this weekend!
I also have my very first giveaway coming soon, something I cannot wait to share with you!
