To Do List a Mile Long... *sigh* And some WINNERS!

As much as I love not being sick anymore... the pile up of things to do is just about as impossible to handle.

Luckily, Will was more than happy to get the girls out of my hair all day yesterday, so I got to sleep in and then clean and clean and clean some more. His job is to empty the dishwasher - my least favorite of all household duties for some reason I don't quite know - but other than that, the cleaning and laundry are all mine.

I, of course, would be more than happy to share the responsibilities with my lovely hubby, but Will (bless his heart) is completely incompetent when it comes to cleaning and I find it even more stressful trying to figure out the method to his madness when I see the clean up job he has done (remember how helpful he was with the laundry??). And I, without a doubt, would rather hibernate all winter long than clean clean clean. Ah, well, it will all be done eventually. In the meantime....

LETS GET TO THE CONTEST WINNERS!! I was actually supposed to announce these three days ago... *sigh* I promise I will catch up to my hectic life eventually!!

Okay, let me just say I had soooooo many fabulous ideas for lovely little dream cupcakes... and it was not an easy task picking two winners.

So I decided to pick three, though I wish I could pick a whole lot more. But I was struck by the idea of a trio of fruity cupcakes... and three cupcake designs tickled my fancy.

1.) Anne aka Casserole for her Orange Dreamsicle Cupcake with orange frosting and a sugared orange slice on top

2.) Lorissa aka LJDesignPhoto for her Vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting and a strawberry on top.

3.) Kim aka Regal Beads for her Lemon Raspberry cupcake with lemon frosting and a raspberry on top.

Mmmmm.... Now I'm hungry.

Thank you so much, everyone who participated! I'm keeping all the other wonderful ideas in mind... and if I do end up using one of your ideas for a cupcake in the future... I will most definitely be sure to let you know with a print and a gift tags set as an inspiration thank-you!

Now I can't wait to get to work on these cupcakes. I'll be sure to show them off when I'm done, later this month.

Enjoy!

OMG I'm so flippin' excited!!! I won, I won! Now I can't say that I never ever win anything...

Glad you're feeling better!! One of the gotchas of being a stay-at-home-mom is that there's no such thing as sick leave. On the flip side, I do think it teaches the little ones about empathy and flexibility.

I'm so excited, I never win anything ;)

I hear you on the to do list as well...dh has a few select things that I ask him to do (the toilet is MY least fav and he doesn't mind), but, seeing as he works a lot more than me, I don't mind. Housework is just not my favourite...I like a clean house, but not cleaning it.
So, I have a pile of dishes and some laundry and various other little things to do today. I work all weekend, then clean clean clean...then I get to bead. *sigh* I want to bead NOW lol

Too funny about Will and housework. I feel blessed that Jacob and I share in all the household cleaning. If I had to clean this huge house by myself all the time, I might not survive! At least Will helps you somewhat and takes the girls with no problem so that you can clean. To me, that's just as good to be able to clean without kids around. The cupcakes sound yummy, can't wait to see what you come up with!
