Current Obsessions :)

Okay, so I've decided to tell you about the things that I am *currently* obsessed about. First, I am totally obsessed with cake decorating. Not just ANY cake decorating, but fondant! My first attempt at fondant was actually pretty successful... With a few minor bumps along the way. Let me just tell you that fondant has this amazing quality of covering up cake disasters :)

I have been watching Cake Boss lately, on TLC. He is amazing! He started talking about how easy it is to make flowers, and such, and I was like "Hey, he said it was easy!" Yeah right... (No, I did not make the flowers below. But he called these easy!!)

I am also obsessed with trying to improve my blog. Do you like the new facelift? There are so many talented people out there. How do you do it?? I'm just REALLY good at stealing ideas.

Working out.
Wait, working out?? Did I just say that out loud? Because I'm pretty sure that I'm really not obsessed with working out. But being healthy, now we're getting on the right track! I think I am going to start counting calories, by using this sweet tool (which I also stole from someone else). I am determined to be healthy! I think...

Okay, last obsession- looking at other people's photography skills and dreaming that I had an amazing camera that could take pictures like that! Don't get me wrong. Randy and I have a great camera that suits our needs. But one day, I will have a nice camera that focuses correctly, zooms, and is just all around awesome!

Obsessions. They can be fun!


  1. Ohhh I second your obsession with photography! I really wish we could afford and awesome camera and that I new more about photography, I think I'll start checking out more books about that such thing when I have a little bit more time on my hands :)

  2. Great Post! I totally get in obsession mode where I focus on a few things for awhile, but then I usually get bored and they change quite often. One of my current ones though totally is working out (at home with dvd's and the wii since I don't have an awesome gym membership like you) but anyway I just started counting calories and exercise calories and I like it so far, it's really helpful. I use though. You should put up pics of your cakes that you make, I bet they are awesome! :)

  3. I too want a cool camera like that. I wish I could take those awesome pictures. How hard can it be, right? Just kidding.

  4. I too felt the same way about a camera I really didn't want to upgrade to to another not so quality picture taking so...after saving Christmas money and my sweet husband gave me some extra money I got a nice camera SOOO worth it!! I am still learning about how to really use ALL the great features and when not to use the automatic stuff. Sooo MUCH fun to explore through it all!
