skipping some small things...

but sticking out a super cold! hooray. erm. ok. anywho, so stuffy and weak, but not tired. i want to do stuff. i've knitted all day and did some light cleaning, but i know this cold is a direct result of sleeping 2-4hours each night for over two weeks. half insomnia and half just me working on projects. so, i learned my lesson and have been trying to catch up on sleep. i got naps this afternoon, but i've been sleeping in the spare bedroom, which isnt a horrible bed, but its not like sleeping my bed. BUT, i've been avoiding that because i dont want to breath sickness all over husband and child. i think tonight i might just crash out on the couch whilst watching harry potter. my favorite pass time.

anywho, i have super fun stuff coming up. we're having a valentines cookie decorating party with some of the boy's friends. i have a bit of an icing delima. i cant decide what to use. i have a recipe for "sugar cookie" frosting, but it takes a long time to set which might prove to be entirely too much of a mess for 3 toddlers. so, here is a poll. need helps! let me know!!!

i was also planning on making valentines cupcakes to send with husband to work. because thats how i roll. i was seeking a super yum chocolate cupcake with a thick chocolate frosting with candy cane hearts on top!!! i have loads of mini candy canes let, so how could i not?

anywho, i think i will clean off the bar a little. not exactly a high impact chore but will make me feel better. i need to save my energy to do the dishes tomorrow. woots.

sunshine and bunnies,

Here is the one I use:
1/4 c butter, softened
Speck of salt (if needed)
2 c sifted powdered sugar
3 T milk or light cream
1/4 t vanilla

mmmmmm...I just like to eat it with a spoon. It is super fast and ready to go as soon as you get it all put together. I have a 4 y/o who is totally impatient. I sympathize with ya there, sista!!

Nothing worse than a winter cold. Hope you feel better soon. By the way, love that Me First and the Gimme Gimmes track!

I am a huge Royal Icing fan... I got it from a Martha Stewart special YEARS ago and have used it ever since! http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/royal-icing-for-sugar-cookies
