Blogging and Pinterest...Oh My!

Baby Chef has done it again! First, she introduced me to it's Pinterest! It's not like I don't have a million other things to do GAH!!!! In case you're not familiar with Pinterest, it's similar to blogging but with pictures. Unfortunately for me, it's become a small obsession and for the past few nights I've sat up looking at "boards" along with reading blogs. Needless to say, I've been fueling myself with caffeine to stay awake at work. Which leads to another problem....caffeine does not to my body good! I act like a kid with an overdose of sugar or worse! I'm all over the place and I literally can't stop talking! I mean it makes me talk more than my average (which is alot). Tonight there will be no more blogging or Pinterest for me! I have to be rested up for tomorrow because Farmer Boo turns 21!!!!

This cake is absolutely wonderful and it's Gma's favorite! I hope you enjoy!
