What should you do for a friend and co-worker who is turning 30 years old and who is sad about leaving her 20s behind? Make them a cake from a childhood icon that they love!
I decorated cakes while I was in college, but that was 7 years ago and I am completely out of practice, but here it is for the world to see. I hope she loves it!!

It seems like it's been forever since I used one of my sewing machines. I was having withdrawals looking at all of my fabrics! So what did I sew? A strap cover for my camera!

We're making progress!! The seedlings have been taking a trip outside into the warm sun the past few days.
My "Grandma Bristow" heirloom tomato volunteers are coming up! Usually I have to hunt through the weeds to find the but I actually got my bed weeded and tilled before they started coming up!
And L and I had planted onions in one of the raised beds and they are poking their way through the soil! We planted the second half of the bag in a different bed today.
I would love to just plant everything into the ground today, but we're not past our last danger of frost yet!

Adding to the exercising day, I just put in my new workout video. Okay, actually it's one of my first 3 workout videos I've ever bought and I just got them last week. I order the Biggest Loser yoga video because I've always wanted to learn yoga and I've read reviews this was a good beginner video. The yoga I enjoyed, I felt good but not totally exhausted. Tonight I put in a Jillian Michaels video and it kicked my butt! I was only able to get through 3 of the 7 circuits. I might not have a lot of physical weight to loose, but I am sure out of shape because my heart was racing and I was pouring sweat! It is going to take a lot of work to get up to all 7 circuits! Now I just need to get a routine down of walking and yoga that I like with a butt kicking high speed Jillian workout!
L and I got out of the house this afternoon and enjoyed a nice walk at a local park. The park is centered around 2 natural ponds, tons of ducks, geese and birds make the ponds home during warmer weather. I pushed L in her stroller while she munched on a snack, drank a Capri Sun and watched the wildlife and people. She told me she wants to learn to roller skate after seeing 2 people on roller blades. She thought it was pretty cool how they were speeding along! I was able to make it 1.75 miles today and my legs burning. I know that's not much for some people, but after spending a snowy winter inside with hardly any exercise, I'm doing good! I just have to remember that it is much harder to push a stroller against the wind than it is to just walk with one of the dogs!

I thought I wasn't enjoying doing Tasty Tuesday, but I realized if I knew I wanted to post a recipe, I would actually find a recipe and have a good dinner, not a last minute throw it together, not that tasty of a dinner
So tonight I made a Layered Enchilada Bake. Recipe was found at Kraft Foods.
Authentic? No... Healthy? Probably not... Tasty? Yes!!
