Weekend Wrap-Up


~ I made my first pineapple upside-down cake and it was great!
~We took it to my parents' house, where we ate stone crab claws and visited and had a nice time.
~Ladybug went to a birthday party for her friend, in which all of these 13 year old girls had a full English Tea! They even dressed up in vintage clothes and had a great time. I think it's a great idea and it gave me something to think about for the Princess's next birthday!
~I did a whole lot of sleeping! I'm taking meds right now that make me sleepy and I am SO glad that tomorrow morning I will take the last dose!
~*~*~*~*~*~
I've decided to dispense with the silly nicknames I use for my kids on the blog. I'm just tired of them, and I love my kids' names and I want to use them! So, for future reference...
T-bone: Tim
Ladybug: Shelbie
Spiderman: Andrew
Princess: Elayna
Hubby: John
and as most of you know, I'm Cyndy.

Pineapple upside down cake is my favorite, but I've never made it. I let my mom do the honors.

I tried to use nicknames for one day on my blog, and I just couldn't keep it straight. I love the name Elayna.

Cid said...

I with you on the names. We are all putting so much out there I don't think changing the names is protecting the innocent. Our kids are all going to need thereapy anyway.

I've always used real names for my family. I sometimes change the names of others so I don't have to worry about anyone suing me for saying something. lol

And English Tea party! How fun! What a great idea. :)

I LOVE the real names. :)

Butterfly Kisses said...

Butterfly Kisses said...

Jo-Jo said...

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

that tea party sound like such a cute fun time!!

Preppy Pink Crocodile said...

So fun! I don't think one is ever too old for a tea party!

Yeah, I dumped the "code names," too a while back. Their photos are on my blog, for crying out loud; if you recognize them, you already know their names, and if you don't, well who cares?

littlebear said...

Mmmmm.... Pineapple upsidedown cake... Can you email me a bite?
As for names, I'm a confusing person because I have one blog where I use their real names, and one blog where I use their nicknmaes! Their blog nicknames are actually their nicknames in real life. Yes, people look at us like we're nuts when we're in public calling the baby Pufferfish!

Bravo to the real names!

Good for you - welcome to the real world. I know everyone is all paranoid about internet stalkers, but I just can't believe the crazies would be all that interested in us. Let 'em go stalk Brittney Spears or someone more entertaining!
