I simply love cupcakes – even shared before a personal recipe for “Margarita Cupcakes
“, with and without alcohol, for little ones… 😮
Although I love baking them, especially for my kids’ birthday parties, this year, I’ll take a break – beginning this October, I’ll be BUYING ALL SWEET TREATS for my ones special’ special day… And why? Just because I’m realizing that, between the sweetness of all the planning, and the crude execution, assembling, decorating, there’s pretty STRESSED PERSON – somebody who ends up changing from a sweet mom into a CRANKY, TIRED, bossy, baker…
And from this point on, I’ve decided: I want the ‘sweet, kind mommy’ back into my kitchen! My kids deserve better than a stormy mother running around the kitchen, before breakfast time! And their dad deserves a caring partner, instead of a screaming wife, telling him to get the decorations ready, while she’s finishing up with the toppings! 😮
That said, I’m retiring from my “home-baking goods mommy business” – at least, until one of my girls, now aged 4 and almost 2, are able to jump in and help mom in the kitchen. Until then, dear ‘commercial bakers out there’, I’m all yours! 😮
Coincidently, right after I had this ‘realization’, I found out my blog had been nominated for a SUPER SWEET BLOG AWARD!
Maybe, it’s the sign I was looking for: I can still write, share experiences and images, discuss with other parents about the challenges of raising TCKs all over the map, and enjoy celebrating my kids special days… with ZERO STRESS! Loved it!
So, here is the award, its rules and next steps: Enjoy! ♥
Thanks to Catherine, from Mezzaphonically Speaking for being super sweet and nominating me for the Super Sweet Blogging Award! I appreciate this special honor and opportunity!

Welcome! Here I am, 'releasing' my thoughts on traveling, parenting, raising TCKs, teaching, writing, working... and who knows what else! I’m a WIFE, 'geeky-stuff' SCIENTIST, TEACHER, AMATEUR photographer, MOM of 3, TRAVELER by choice and by marriage, and of course, a HOUSEHOLD QUEEN!!

Thank you, Elle! 😮
Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
You’re funny!!!! 😮
Glad you enjoyed your time here!
Congrats on the award! =D
Thank you very much! 😮
Thank you, Marianne! 😮
Cupcakes look fantastic!
I remember the fun/quality times of baking cake/cookies, carving pumpkins & popping popcorn on the stove with the Miranda family … the boys were more creative than I was
Let’s hope one of the boys (my hubby) is still creative! I’ll need his skills this October to carve pumpkins, and help set Cesar’s birthday up! Apparently, according to ‘birthday boy’ it’ll be a ‘Halloween-Ninjago-Marvel Heroes-Boys’ theme… whatever it is!!!! But Cherise, this time, I’m buying the cupcakes, probably from another mom from the school… It’ll still be fun, I’m sure! 😮 Miss you guys!
Thanks you so much …. and … congratulations to you.
Yours is one of the blogs that keep me going! Thank you!! 😮

Thank you… definitely, a “sweet award”! 😮
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
