Oh happy day!!!

For those of you that don't already know, my kickstarter project ended on Sunday.  I was seriously stalking my page, watching as the donations kept climbing, and sure enough....I met my goal!!!  My project was 102% funded!!!!  It has taken a few days to sink in, but I am so incredibly excited.  I am touched, honored, humbled, thankful, etc for all of you that shared my page, encouraged me, lifted my spirits, and made extremely generous donations, both big and small.  Literally every single dollar counted! There was no donation too big or too small.  It was a joint effort behind all of my backers that made this possible.  In the coming months, I will be working on licensing, setting up the rental kitchen, and purchasing a delivery vehicle.  I'll also be sending out rewards for all of my backers.  And, be sure to mark your calendars for June 2, opening day of the Snellville Farmers Market!  I'll have a booth set up that is sure to satisfy any sweet tooth!!!

I also wanted to share this little guy with you...

Isn't he just adorable?  I had a friend send a picture of her son's favorite stuffed animal and wanted me to make a cake that looked like him.  I think he turned out great!  The dog bowl is the smash cake!!!

I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

Back to reality!

It feels so weird to work on my laptop right now.  I packed it up a week and a half ago to head down to Florida for spring break.  BUT, I didn't even take it out of the bag the ENTIRE trip!  I'm so proud of myself.  So, now I have emails to respond to, updates to post, pictures to post, you know...all of that catching up we do when we return to reality.  Not to mention getting the house reorganized, the loads and loads of laundry, and trying to stay motivated while you just want to plop down in a chair outside, bask in the sun, and take a little siesta.  But no, there are more important things to do.

Our trip was great.  Definitely not long enough.  But when is it really long enough?  We've had several vacations where I've just wanted to get back home, to my house, my space, and my bed.  We spent the first few days at the in-law's in Florida.  You may remember the two cakes that were getting packed up for their 7 hour journey.  Well, they made it!  And everyone loved them!!!

I absolutely LOVE these cake boxes.  Unfortunately, the company I purchased them from just went out of business before I could order some more.

We had a great time with hubby's family, but were all very eager to get to the beach.  We were only able to spend 2 nights at the beach since the hubby had to come back for a meeting, but we definitely made the most of our time there.  The hubby even rented a kayak for Nicholas so they could do out in the ocean.  And it was reported that Nicholas said it was the best thing a kid could ever do.  We took a leisurely drive home and stopped in St.Augustine.  It was very crowded walking through the historic district, but the kids had fun and it was a great way to stretch our legs before finishing our journey home. 

Here's an update on my kickstarter!

I am currently at 28% of my goal which is GREAT, however, I only have 5 days left to reach my goal.  With your help and support, this is still possible!  PLease take a moment to read it, share with friends, etc.  Every single dollar helps!  There is no donation that is too big or too small.
