Some fun things.

I have a love/hate relationship with routine.
I wish I was organized and I do try. Honestly.
For example I've tried having scheduled posts on the blog.
Mondays are usually recipe days, Fridays are party days, etc.
But schedules and routines, they kind of bore me.
As soon as I get into the swing of things I start itching for spontaneity.
(I believe that's a major reason it took us 6 months to get Lily on a nap schedule.)
So I learned that lesson and we don't stray far from the sleep schedule.
But that means when I'm feeling rebellious I'll be taking it out on the blog.
Sorry for those of you who prefer order.
Today, I'll be talking about a little of everything so here it goes.

(See? Total random-ness & chaos :) I love this picture of Milo though! It's from our Friday afternoon sunshine basking party. Ahh... spring!)

First off I'm offering a cupcake class on April 17!
This is SO EXCITING to me so you might be hearing a lot about it.
Hope you're excited too :)
It's $40 and you get to come hang out with me for 2 1/2 hours.
Snacks are included of course. ( I don't really believe in getting together with out snacks.)
All supplies and ingredients are included.
We'll mix, bake AND decorate beautiful cupcakes and you get to take home a dozen (which is a $36 value all by itself.)
I'll also send you home with the recipe and let's be honest there will probably be prizes.
Soooooo if you live in or near Denver, please sign up!
I would love to party with you :)

I have a second piece of exciting news today.
I am now baking from a certified gluten free kitchen!!
Deby's gluten free bakery is a wonderful and well known shop in Denver,
and I am now renting space from them!
Monica, the owner, has been nothing but wonderful & I am so excited about working with her :)
Plus, it means there is no chance of anything being cross contaminated so even the most gluten sensitive can rest assured.

(Here I am on my first day headed in to "work" at the commercial space... and feeling like a dork :) Hunter insisted that I document the moment for my blog.)

Coming soon...
My very first scone recipe!
These got enthusiastic thumbs ups around here,
but we're far from scone experts :)
So I sent out the recipe for a test run.
A sweet reader actually requested a scone recipe so she is testing them out and letting me know.
The recipe will post as soon as I get the go ahead from Kate!

Final piece of important news for the day:
I went to Canvas & Cocktails with my friend Sarah last week.
And now I have new art :)
I'm not much of a painter but my chandelier makes me proud.

Have a wonderful & blessed Monday!
