Happy Birthday Gigi!!!

I have a very special sister-in-law.  I know that everyone says that, or maybe they don't nowadays, but I do.  Probably the most special sister-in-law of all time.  She's really one of the most amazing people I have ever met.  Because of her I strive to be a better wife, mother, sister, friend... basically just a better person all together.   
She was the first person I met from my husband's family.  Her parents and brother and sister are just as amazing as she is.  They have always welcomed me with open arms and loving hearts.  We often joke that I was a member of her family before I was a member of my husband's.

Gigi is one of the most thoughtful people I have ever come across.  She remembers every birthday, special event, and alot of times just surprises me with a gift or a sweet text for no reason.  It's just who she is, and it is done out of pure love.  And somehow she does all of this while being a super mom, running a household, and volunteering for her children's activities.  She is really like a Superwoman :)

She has always been a wonderful listener, a shoulder to cry on, and so funny she can make me laugh til I cry.  She loves my kids like they were her own, with every inch of her heart.  She and my brother-in-law have done so much for us over the years, and they and their kids mean more to us than they could ever know.

Gigi is my sister-in-law because we are married to brothers, but she is my friend because of her heart, which is the biggest this world has ever seen....

Happy Birthday Gigi!!!  I love you!!

A wedding to remember...

One of my best friends, Sarah, got married this past December.  I was lucky enough to get to do all of her cakes and desserts for the reception and gift bags. It was the biggest order I've ever done, and it was so amazing and wonderful to get to be a part of Sarah and Jeffs' special day. My frIend, Ashley Rutland, who owns Ashley Rutland Photography, did the photos for the wedding.  She is an amazing photographer in the DFW area and if you're around here you should really check her out! Ashley had a friend of hers, a blogger named Kim, do a write up of the wedding.  Kim's an amazing mom, wife, and blogger, and you can read her blog here at: I wanted to share her write up with you.  It really encompasses the atmosphere and feeling of the wedding, and Sarah and Jeff as well!! Winter weddings always seem to capture a certain type of elegance that can only be enhanced by the magic of the sea

Favorite Cakes of 2014

2014 was a crazy year for me over here at Sugar Cubed Bakery.  I technically "started" the bakery in 2013, so I had a registered bakery name and got my food handler's license, but I didn't start getting the home bakery out to the public until early 2014.  I needed that year to sort of get my bearings, get comfortable with my work and techniques, figure out what to charge, and how to manage my time etc.  I didn't want to rush into taking a bunch of orders and get overwhelmed. So after a year of "growing", I started the website, along with social media, and never looked back. So when I decided to do a "Favorites of 2014", I was surprised that all of these cakes were in 2014. It feels like ALOT longer than a year ago or less that I made them.  So much has happened since then. And yes I know it is almost April and everyone else's BEST of 2014s were put out in January...  I'm still catching up people! lol  Just be happy I'm bloggin

Why are there not more hours in the day?

How do people do it?  I see all of these amazing women on instagram every day and they look perfect, their kids look perfect, their houses look perfect, their businesses are bigger than mine, and they do it all with a huge smile on their face.  Sometimes I can't get out the front door without the kids having WWIII, dropping my purse, dropping my phone, and at least someone (usually me) crying in the process. Maybe it's easy to look perfect when all people are seeing is a photo glimpse into our lives once or twice a day.  But sometimes it just seems that I am hanging on by a thread.  I guess the grass is always greener on the other side, I remember when my kids were small and everyone constantly asked me, "How do you do it???" I have 4 kids.  My oldest, he is 17.  I have twin boys who are 12, and the baby girl is just about to turn 11.  Yes, I had 3 in diapers at one time.  Yes, I know what causes babies lol.  I remember constantly being asked, "How do you do
