Hello there!

Is this thing on?!?

I'm not going to make excuses for my absence.

Actually, I am. There have been bouts with illness, wedding cakes, cake classes, weight loss (more on that in a second), hospital visits, and many other things that have prevented me from updating in a proper manner!

Rylee was super sick, I was super sick (still recovering from a terrible sinus infection that just will not go away), we've had multiple cake and cutter orders every week, I've been teaching the cake class here at the house every week for a month and a half, my FIL had a heart attack and he was in the hospital for a while (he's better now)... it's been crazy around here!

Anyway, things seem like they are slowing a tad at the moment. This week is pretty calm but next week starts the beginning of another crazy month and a half.

In some really good news - I've lost about 25 pounds! It feels pretty good and I'm finally back to where I was before Rylee was born. ( I did get there right after she was born but then I started baking cakes). Anyway, I'm on a mission to lose more so wish me luck!

This week was Rylee's last week of the summer ballet session. Since it was the last week, we were allowed to come in, observe the class and take pictures. She starts back up for the year next week. We're probably going to try a more structured gymnastics class pretty soon too. We did My Gym for a while earlier this year. She really loved it but it was more like an hour of playtime vs. an hour learning something.

Here are some pictures that I took yesterday of Rylee as a ballerina:

Congrats on the weight loss!

And also, oh my god, Rylee's going to be an adult before we know it. Such a cute ballerina.
