Mug Cakes

Monday, March 30, 2015


Sooooo...have you guys tried one of these yet?! Whenever myself, or someone in the house, wants a yummy treat, fast, we make one of these yummy mug cakes! There are recipes all over the internet, and of course on Pinterest. I highly recommend making one these babies if you are craving cake, but you don't feel like baking a whole cake. The process takes about 5 minutes. My only suggestion is letting it cool down for a few minutes, I have a habit of just jumping right in, and burning my tongue! If you have your own mug cake recipe please share!

Where Did March Go?

Thursday, March 26, 2015

Okay, so I feel like this month really got away from me! I have a lot of stress going on in my "real life" job, which is stealing me away from my blog and everything else! Not fun. Well aside from being super stressed out from work and other life drama, I got to be in a wedding! No I wasn't a bridesmaid or anything cool like that, but I was the officiant! I was so excited and honored to marry these crazy love birds!

So the first picture there is in Niagara Falls, we made a pit stop. That's my son on the bed. I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful it is! It was also mostly frozen. I'm also going to take a moment and apologize for not taking a bunch of pictures...shame on me! Normally if I'm not the photographer, I'm that annoying family member/friend who always has a camera in your face, but not this time. I was actually exhausted from the drive to Ohio from Vermont. I was also pretty nervous due to the fact that this was the first wedding where I was the officiant. I spent a lot of  time making sure I had the ceremony perfect, but here are a couple that I got with my iPhone and the last was taken with my real camera..ha ha. The picture of Amber and I making donuts is courtesy of my mother-in-law.

All the cups at the hotel had either mouths or mustaches and I got to help with the bouquets!

Amber showed me how to fill and ad icing to donuts.

My wife Jes and her brother Kevin the day after the wedding.

We had so much fun! I literally danced all night long. I can't wait to see them again! I hope things slow down a little bit around here, but I doubt it. I'm in the middle of mid-terms and it's crunch time for me. I'm hoping that I can get more blogging in soon...who knows!

Until next time!

Frozen Waterfalls

Monday, March 9, 2015

I took these pictures before it got warmer here. We have had a rough winter! Record freezing temperatures that have fallen -35 degrees! (that's Fahrenheit btw) One thing about weather that gets cold and then melts, is that it creates beautiful frozen waterfalls! We drove around all day taking pictures. These are some of my favorites and my daughter was in on the action too! She loves photography, and I have been teaching her a lot! We had a lot of fun, and we can't wait for spring and when everything starts to melt!

Cupcake Love - St. Patrick's Day

           St. Patcrick's day is almost here! I thought I would share with you a few recipes that I found. I found so many yummy ones! I actually have a funny story for you that I dont think I have shared on here. As of last year I had no idea that I am pretty much half Irish. I thought for sure that I was mostly British. I did one of those Ancestry DNA tests. Anyway, I was super stoked to find out! That explains my daughter's blonde hair and blue eyes! Plus now I can say "Kiss ME I'm Irish" with pride! ha ha! My dad was really surprised, he thought we were french. We are British though! And Scandinavian, with a dash of Hawaiian, Filipino, Chinese and Native American. I'm a melting pot! The smaller amounts that fell under 1% were Indian, and Russian, which was a total surprise!

Anyway, Every St. Patrick's day I find myself eating cabbage and corned beef, eating everything green, even drinking green beer! I never really knew the true history! I do know now! Just in case you didn't, I shared this little video: 


Crazy right?! Did you know the history of St. Patrick? I was pretty amazed when I did some research.
