Bake Your Selfie

There is a new Netflix show that we enjoy as a family called Nailed It. It's a reality show about bakers who are given the task of recreating treats and miserably failing.

Post college (the first degree) I tried to get on the first popular reality show, MTV's The Real World. Needless to say I did not make it. I am now at a place in my life that there are not too many reality shows that I am eligible for nor interested in applying for. This was my opportunity!

The application process was easy. Bake Your Selfie. Using their recipe, you were to bake and ice a sugar cookie of yourself. The only other step was to post it side-by-side by your real selfie on social media with the hashtags #bakeyourselfie #nailedit.

Challenge accepted.

We were all excited to bake my selfie.
I had cameramen to document all of it.
 I  had mixers to help with the exact colors.
 I had coaches to guide me.
 I had cheerleaders to encourage me.
 And the final product!
I never heard from them, and season two is now being aired. I'm going to assume I didn't make the cut. But the cookie sure was good!

Open Mic Night At The Museum

It's always a treat when our school has Museum Night. 
It was even more of a treat this year, as my little rock star jammed out for us. There was a temporary display on guitars.
They happened to have an electric guitar that people could play. I was amazed, pleased and proud that my little guy jumped up and played a couple songs that he had memorized.
Daisy and her friend Londyn were not quite as focused.
Love this little guitar player so.

King Of The Hill

For the Stage Right 2 showcase, my thespian was King Saul.

"Now listen you people. I'm king of the hill, no matter how steeple. If bad guys invade our beloved habitat, I'll swat them away, 'cuz HEY--I'm all that!"

The group also did a reading about how great God is.



They're a good group of kids that are quite silly, but love to shine their light for the Lord.
My Zekers made it into Advanced Theater next year in school. I can't wait to see where he goes and who he becomes on the stage!

We've Got Spirit, Yes We Do!

My favorite junior high and high school memories are entwined with cheerleading and all that had to offer. It makes me so excited that Daisy is interested in cheer I just wanna get up and do a herkie...if only I was still capable of doing a herkie jump. 

I was almost as happy as Daisy to purchase her first cheer shoes when I saw what The Cheer Connection had to offer...
That's right folks. Kaepas! Complete with a whole box full of colorful triangles to switch out to match your outfit. Just like mine from 30+ years ago.

The TCC Cheer Showoff was Daisy's first cheer performance. She did great!
 The Daiser loves Mrs. Holly.
 The week after the showoff, Daisy tried out for a show team and made it. She is officially on the Firecrackers next year! She will be wearing one of those blue and black glittery outfits for the performances.
 Can't wait to watch her grow in her cheer skills.

Happy Spring!

You know it's spring in Texas when the Bradford Pears are in bloom and the bluebonnets come out.
 The dogs love taking bluebonnet pictures.
The kids not so much.
 But they begrudgingly come along every year.
 I can even get them to hug.
 And sometimes there's a laugh.
Happy spring!
