This is the week that doesn't end...yes, it goes on and on, my friends!

Things have been getting super hectic up in here. Like, mad crazy, even. Rather than my week flying by in situations like this, it's dragged. Dragged through snowy sludge, dragged.

Speaking of snow. We keep getting it! Too much! I'm so ready for warm weather, and walking barefoot through the grass, and having a reason to shave my legs again (Overshare? No such thing!). I've been having an easy time keeping busy, thankfully, but it doesn't make my time go any faster.

Why would I want time to go faster? That's an answer for another time and place (Like in two weeks), but I'm just ready to not have to worry about the weather anymore. Today I about had a royal flip out when it was snowing up a storm around 10 AM, but the weather turned nice, that snow melted, and all was well in Who-ville again.

I've been battling a bit of a cold this week, but my lovely papa bought me Puffs Plus Lotion, on the day before Valentine's day. Love my daddy. They helped SO much. At work,  was using paper towels when I sneezed, so that wasn't very fun at all. To thank him, and celebrate how much I love my family (I don't really like how Valentine's Day is usually celebrated), I baked them a cake.

Whenever I need to bake a cake, I used to search Pinterest, but that all changed sometime last year. Last year, I found Lizzy May Early's blog, www.yourcupofcake.com, and have made several of her recipes over the last year, or so. Every recipe I've tried has turned out so well, and received so many rave reviews. I bought her cookbook when it was $1.99 on Amazon, and made my mom the Chocolate Orange cupcakes, which my mom absolutely adored. I told my dad to peruse her site, and I'll make him whatever he wants for his birthday, next week.
These went fast...
Today, after working out, and shopping and watching a "Worst Cooks in America" marathon with mom (we LOVE this show), I started baking Lizzy's Red Velvet Sour Cream Bundt Cake. I can't wait to try it. Right now, it's cooling in the garage (Or Wintertime Outside Freezer, as we call it), and it looks perfect (Well, the cake did. The icing looks sloppier than hers did, but she also does it a lot more than me).


Tomorrow, I've got a busy day. Two church services (Worship team!), then I'm going to see Agrippina by Opera Omaha at the Orpheum Theatre with my aunt (We bought season tickets this year for SUPER cheap!), followed by the Bill Ramsey Financial Peace University at my church with my dad and sis. I'm pretty psyched to learn how to make my money work for me, and get my debt under control. My cousins, Joe and Brooke took it awhile back, and Brooke raves about it. I'm really hoping it's as much of a blessing to me as it was to them.

Anyway, I've got a surprise coming up, and I can't wait to share it with you. If you love movies, you'll probably be really psyched to see what's coming. Particularly Jane Austen, RomCom fans. *wink*
