No time for nappin'

It's 11:30 and I just put Adrien down for a nap. You know, some days he just wakes up needing one. He'll be so cranky sometimes, that I just want to close my eyes and hide until he falls over in the sleeping position. Today is one of those days. Yesterday was too.

I'm so stinking sleepy today. So. Tired. Can't. Go. On.

Alas, I have to.

Today is Andi's birthday and I've got to bake him a three layer red velvet cake (Paula Deen, y'all), and prepare dinner: a menu of roasted pork tenderloin, garlic sauteed asparagus and salt-crusted baked potatoes. Yum. I can not wait to eat. I seriously love food. Love it. Know what else I love? Food Network on my 42" TV. Love it. Paula Deen is life size and Bobby Flay's quesadillas are bigger than Adrien. Holy foodie nirvana, Batman...I think I'm in love.

So anyway, I really just wanna go plop down on the couch and finish watching Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Indonesia), but I can't. I've gotta pick myself up off of this stinkin' computer and go bake a cake. The cake better be good, too. I think I might cry if it sucks. Baking is not necessarily my forte -- it's not say I suck at it, I don't. I just don't do as much of it as I do actual cooking. Oh well, at least I know there'll be a good dinner at the end of the rainbow. Mmmmmm, asparagus.

I think I'm about to drool.

Wow that sounds like a feast fit for kings! You should take pictures of all your hard work! Happy Birthday to Andi! Have fun

I have seen good ol' Paula make that cake..I think it was her son's bday..but it looked so yummy!
BTW...since I am new at this here blogging thing I had a few questions I thought you could help. For instance how do I 'hyperlink'? is that what its called where I type something in bold and you can click it and it will direct you elsewhere? And..when posting my pictures..I can only put them before my entries...how do I mix it up and put some at the end..or in the middle?
