Crazzzzy Monday!


So I am not feeling too great this Monday... Woke up with a sore throat... Anyone know the calorie content of mucus? Cuz I've probably ingested enough to fill my daily calorie requirement... okay okay... I feel less than great :(

Anyways, decided to skip the gym this morning since I wasn't feelin like pushing my body when I wasn't at least 80%... So at lunch I ran an errand - hit Rite Aid for some sugar free Werthers and some peanuts (BOGO!) for my boss... then I ran over to Subway for some diet coke (i know i know... booo soda... w/e)... and I saw this guy that looked oddly familiar as I was walking out... he wasn't facing me so I decided I had to sneak a view of his face just to satisfy my curiousity... Well I did know him! He was my Mass Transfer professor in college... did I mention my school was in New York and I live in Utah now? Yea... WTF was he doing in Utah! Apparently SLC is hosting the Chemical Engineering Society's Annual Conference.... Who knew!!! {I'm a Chemical Engineer!}

Anywho... he gave me an invite to a reception Tues&Wens night... I am psyched beyond belief....

Anyways.. I had a crap-tastic weekend... Saturday boyfriend and I went to a 'Diamond Event' at Fred Meyer jewelers that we had been planning on attending for 3 weeks... I want a Marquise solitare which is basically impossible to find... well, okay, there just is little to no selection... so we told our sales guy what we wanted and made the appointment. They were suppose to tell the show vendor to bring stones in our size/price range... but as I am currently ring-less I will tell you that they were completely unprepared and had literally NOTHING to show us... I cried...a lot...

Boyfriend WILL NOT propose without the ring... which is driving me nuts... we are technically engaged but not really... it's this odd, ringless, limbo ...

Then, as I was headed home from that disappointment our realtor called to tell me that of the 5 houses we were planning on seeing Sunday, only 1 was willing to schedule an appointment on a Sunday... I HATE UTAH!!! GRRR!... and I am slightly mad at the Realtor for waiting until Sat @5pm to tell me... but whatever we re-scheduled for tonight... So I guess I will be missing Mamavation TV {bummer!!!}

So Saturday night I made this beautiful cake for my grandma's birthday (Sunday night):

It was TOTALLY awesome! Take 2 white cake mixes - divide into 6 bowls - use gel icing coloring to make a red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple cake (~15mins cook time)... layer with the icing of your choice and wait for people to be suprised~!

And, even though I indulged in this delicious cake I still managed to lose a pound this week!

Yay Mamavation! Yay Me!

By the way... we have the best sponsors! I love subway! But I get totally beyond giddy when Earth Footwear hosts! I seriously want some of those shows... and Since I will probably not win, eventually I am going to break down and buy a pair... now I just have to figure out which ones I want! SO MANY CHOICES!!! OMG! Check out Earth Footwear if you haven't heard of them yet! You know you want a pair!!

Anyways... if you're leaving a comment - THANKS - I'd love some ring advice!!


  1. That is an AWESOME cake! and CONGRATS on the loss!!!

    I'm sorry that you are dealing with so much craziness and the 'hurry up and wait' affect can definitely be a drag.... Hang in there!!! Good luck with the house viewing :)

  2. Woohoo 1lb lost! Love the cake! I haven't made a cake in a long time, but I have birthdays coming up in the new year. I am laughing about the whole Utah house hunting (sorry). They are just not that into selling then because they could show while they are at church for 3 hours. I hate house hunting now. Hope the ring thing is circled soon. have fun at the reception!

  3. Woohoo on the lost pound! And that cake looks amazing, and way time intensive!

  4. Woohoo! Out of curiosity, have you looked for your ring on I know, internet, can't see before you buy, blah blah blah, but my ring came from there and it did not disappoint. In fact when I bring it in to jewelers to have it cleaned I get constant compliments on it and asked where I purchased it. I had it appraised for insurance purposes and it came back way higher than I expected and now I will not buy any diamonds anywhere else. Check it out. Doesn't cost anything to look, right?

  5. I love the cake! It looks awesome! That is so cool that you got the invite! I'm sorry to hear about your ring and you not feeling well. :-( I hope this week is much better!

  6. LOVE your cake! It is very cheerful :) Hope you feel better soon :(

  7. Just checking in on you to see how your week is going! HUGS

  8. I think its sweet that your bf wants to make a big deal of the proposal with the ring. good luck finding a house and have a great week enjoy the reception
