So if you are ever passing through Katy, I suggest you take a few minutes to stop by and show some love to The Iced Cupcake. I tried to check out their website, but its getting a face lift at the moment. Instead, check out their Facebook page. And where was this cupcake beauty when I was at the shop?!?

I spent Thursday night after work cleaning and making the cake. today, Friday has been spent catching up on reviews and finishing up laundry. While I was at it, I started some organizing to clean up what I have.
This is what happens when I'm stuck with the kids at home and don't have to work.
My oldest also finally lost that second tooth. Both of his adult teeth grew in behind his baby teeth. He was updating me daily and even hourly today on how much more "wiggly" it had gotten. Along with asking, "Mom, do you want to feel it move?"
My daughter wanted to color her princess pictures. It has been determined that pink is most definitely her favorite color. Can you see why?
I've taken some breaks in between. We watched John Carter since it arrived from Disney Movie Rewards. Soon we will be chasing bad guys through the wild west with the Lone Ranger!
I love my new Star Wars book mark too! I found an article about the future Star Wars movie. December will be a special month for sure!
I also had a chance to surf the internet. My mom clued me in to a channel on YouTube that I have now fallen in love with. Check out Story of This Life. The video for today? This is probably why divorce rates are so high in America.
Tomorrow I will take the kids to Toys R Us for a Lego building event.
And then perhaps get a visit from my dad who flew in from Florida. And I've made a special treat for a get together with friends from my job.
But hopefully next time they will.
One more thing I found that I wanted to share was this link with some very helpful hacks for cleaning. This was on the Krazy Coupon Lady blog.

Just use the code SUMMER30 at checkout. These boxes are designed for kids 3-8 to encourage exploration and imagination. They also come with free shipping.
These are straw-like chips made from beans! Extra crunchy with that salty flavor that is still better than your leading brand chips. Plus the beans give these snacks added fiber value which is better for your digestion. You won't have colorful fingertips for your kids to decorate the furniture or their clothing with either. They use cannellini, green and pinto beans to make these. There are three flavors; BBQ,
"Beans have been a staple in the Mediterranean region for centuries, packed with protein and nutrients our bodies crave.
This modern day superfood, allows us to create better-for-you snacks with simple, ancient ingredients."As a bonus, they sent me this nifty little notepad with pen.
Its perfectly pocket-sized and good for someone constantly writing while on the go!
I sent some out to friends and family. One bag accompanied my friend and her family on the road from Texas to Florida. They sent me this picture when they stopped to snack.
This move is an upheaval for everyone. The Emotions team doesn't always agree on how things should go. Sadness... no one knows what she is for. What her job is doesn't seem clear. I mean, why would you want anyone to be sad? Especially a pre-pubescent girl. Yet, she's drawn to touch and mingle the feelings of certain Joy moments and causes trouble. Joy and Sadness are suddenly taken from the Headquarters of Riley's mind and thrust out into the long term memory bank where all her memories are stored. They begin trying to get back to HQ to fix everything. Meanwhile, the rest of the team is struggling to make things stay right until Joy returns. But they aren't Joy and things just go wrong for Riley. She can't function at school. She can't play hockey. Her parents rely on her to stay happy as they also struggle to make the transition. She's feeling so alone, scared and unable to cope without Joy to remind her about the good things she still has. Joy and Sadness are learning more about each other and what roles they have as teammates instead of as individuals. And as a team, they will be responsible for getting Riley back on track when she decides to run away and shut off all her Emotions.
Definitely loved this one. I took my middle son who got bored and wanted food the whole time. My friend brought her daughter and they enjoyed it. Just hope that you don't have the same issue we had where the movie wasn't focused for the 3D showing and we ended up watching the short movie Lava twice. Don't get me wrong, its a cute Hawaiian themed short about two volcanoes in love. Or in "lava". But still... only so much ukulele you can handle in one sitting. Definitely enjoy the very very end! You get to see what happens in other characters minds. LOVED that part!!!
He needed it for his brothers bachelor party. Of course I agreed to take his challenge. How could I not?! It's Batman, chocolate and cake all in one. First of all, it took more money and time than I anticipated. Fondant comes in a box for $10 a pop. Seriously?? And its like a brick that takes a muscled arm to get flat. I work out. I work hard. And yet, I wanted to cry. It took two days with interruptions to get everything done. And there were several bumps along the way.
First I went searching for the images I'd need to use as stencils.

It has a sleek housing that offers better grip than the Basic, but writes the same.
This one is triangle-shaped as part of the Viscoglide Technology. It allows for better fitting in your fingers and a full bodied grip to make writing comfortable. This pen is made completely without adding to the carbon footprint
Summer is nearly over. Before you know it, Halloween will be here. But even outside of that there are other opportunities to dress up or cosplay for. Here in San Antonio there is San Japan, Alamo City, SciFest, and more. All of them within the next few months. I've been preparing by piecing together my costume to cosplay as Sweet Pea from Sucker Punch.
I'm going to use this sword with my costume that I previously reviewed.
I might even try taking one of my kids with me this time, though they tend to get bored easily after just an hour.... So if you are looking for costumes or accessories, check out the Wholesale Costume Club. You can sign up to be a member and get the discounted price as well. Let's dress up and be someone else for a little while.
