-- Attitude Adjustment --

I'm not sure why, but lately I've been in a bit of a funk and the lack of blog posting is Exhibit A of my bad mood.  As my Mom and Dad might say, I have been in desperate need of an attitude adjustment :)

So in an effort to perk-me-up Lucas suggested Cake Pops and that's an idea that I can definitely get behind.  My last cake pop experience was also right around Easter and they were delicious.  This batch is equally as good - and was less of a headache too because I took the route of sprinkles instead of hand-decorating each pop.

A highlight of this Cake Pop experience was that I asked Lucas to get me a piece of styrofoam to stick the pops into and he didn't have any in the garage.  So instead he disappeared into his workshop, pulled out some wood scraps and a drill bit and came back with these stunners!  Nice right?  I think that with the way Cake Pops are sweeping the country, he should patent these babies :)

Yes, I took a lot of pictures :)

In addition to making - and eating - Cake Pops, another perk-me-up from yesterday was coming across this beautiful song on Facebook yesterday by Nichole Nordeman.  What a wonderful message - my favorite line "You should have seen me smile the day that I made you"

If you've got a minute - check out this video - it will make your heart swell :)

Ok, one last Cake Pop picture...

gorgeous! and i love the sprinkles - my hand decorating also didn't go over so well, but you can't go wrong with sprinkles. and now that you have fancy stands, you must make cake pops all of the time!!!!

hope the blues pass by quickly - enjoy eating those pops!
