Ok. So...welllll.....

I feel like I only blog now to make excuses.  Sorry I am so lame, BUT......I know I have been M.I.A, BUT.....I know I am large and in charge now, BUT.....

BUT.....this post will be different.

In the sense that there will be an overabundance of excuses.  As opposed to just one measly little excuse.

Poor little Oliver has been sick since Wednesday.  He has had an unbreakable fever for days, and a hacking cough, snotty bloody nose, you name it.  So I know I have been M.I.A, BUT the baby was sick so what's a gal to do?

The whole week I have had this irresistible urge to bake bake bake!  I have tried to contain myself though, because my dear husband is in a Biggest Loser Group and he is up to profit $600 hundred bucks here folks.  Now, I know that none of my measly little ole' modest baked goods are worth $600, BUT that was all I could stand, I can't stand me no more! So yesterday when I finally got the baby down I decided to make a big dinner AND to bake something.  ANYTHING.

One plate of steak, double baked stuffed red potatoes, and a green vegetable salad that would make your mama proud, I found myself feeding my poor starving for $600 husband a gorgeous Yogurt Marmalade Cake.


he freaking loved it!

The recipe is from the lovely Pioneer Woman.  You can find it here.

So life is good again.  Basically only for me though, but whatever right?  A happy mom makes a happy home.

I go back to school this coming Monday.  I am super full time this semester.  I am taking five classes for a total of 15 units.  I am also a research assistant right now on two upcoming books that I will be working on the next few months.  Oh yeah, and the whole wife and mother and running a household thing, and work, and laundry...oh!  and being a crabby blimpy whale.  But I think I will be just fine.


I might not be here a whole heck of a lot.  Get your love in now folks, and try not to miss me tooooo much.
