Baked Goods

I love anything about baked goods. Whether its mixing all the ingredients up, the smell of something baking in the oven or just eating it. I can't help it. I love it. I would bake everyday if I could. There is just something therapeutic about it! Last weekend I baked a Red Velvet Cake for my father-in-law, Monday I baked cupcakes for my boys for Valentines Day and today I am baking a pound cake for Josh's grandpa and Janet.

Here are some pictures of some of the things I have baked recently

But...after today I am giving up baking for a little while. Why you ask?

Because I want to:

A.) fit in a bathing suit (since I was on the old medicine I haven't been able to wear a bathing suit until this year!!!!!!) AND

B.) look like this chick...ok, i'm not going to look like this chick doesn't matter how much I quit eating, but a girl can wish!

So here is to more bikini wearing and less baked goods! Its a sad day in our house...I wonder what Josh is going to say when I tell him.....

haha this is cute! I love baking too but I try not to keep that stuff in the house b/c I'll eat every cupcake, the whole pan of brownies and about 4 pieces of cake.... haha

I agree! :) I had to smile when I read this! :) I LOVE to bake stuff! I don't eat a lot of it, but Adam and our families do, and they like to say I add to their waistlines. :) haha And I'd like to look like that chick too!

PS - I'm so excited for you that you can enjoy the beach and sun again!!! :)

That 2nd picture - the one that looks like cinnamon rolls, you need to post that recipe!
Me and my roommates would always say as long as you eat in pairs/even numbers we cancel out each others sugar-filled snacking :)

Ha ha! Sounds like me! I think I have made a buttermilk chocolate cake every weekend for the past month or two! But I totally understand your motivation to stop for bikini season ;) So happy for you that you get to wear one, God is good!
