OK... So today has been the day of cakes!

First my buddy Brian posted on his facebook about the most amazing cake he came across!

Wonderful! I am going to have to try that recipe!!

Second! I have a friend who is expecting a baby boy soon and I wanted to make a special baby gift for her. I decided to make a baby diaper cake. I have never attempted one so I didn't know how it would come out. None of my friends here have ever heard of a Diaper Cake. SOOO I thought I would post pictures of my creation!!! YAY! Enjoy!

The 3 D's I hate...

Death, Dying, and Darkness.

My life this past month has been full of death, dying, and darkness. My Dad's uncle Rob passed away unexpectedly last week and we had his funeral this weekend. My cousin Michelle lost one of her friend's from injuries sustained from a car accident in May. Her funeral was today. I watched the Michael Jackson memorial last week. I read the blogs of people who are grieving for family members they have lost. I know that no one likes death. It is a part of life that we have to deal with. I just seem to have a very
irrational fear of death. I can't even watch Tv where there is death involved. Brendan was watching some program on discovery and I begged him to change the channel because I just couldn't handle it. I lay awake at night thinking about things I can't change. I will just wind myself up thinking about death till I get to the point of tears. I am ridiculous I know.

I know that I have always been taught about heaven and how we get to heaven. I Just have a hard time accepting life going on with out someone. I think about Brendan or I never knowing when our time might end. I think about not knowing how much time I have with those I love.

See... Ridiculous.

that is death. Dying on the other hand is slow normally. I lost my best friend to cancer when I was 14. It was 6 months of hell for Mandy. She had cancer and I have never been the same since.

Death, Dying, and Darkness all go hand in hand. and I hate it. ( yes I am afraid of the dark) I think it is more that I am afraid of the unknown. I am afraid of what I cannot see or comprehend. either that or I am just a chicken.

I wish I could have all those back in my life I have lost. I wish I knew when one of my goodbye's would be the last. It is sad. I am not good at handling sadness. uggggg... it's time for bed.

Maybe one day I will come to terms with life and death. At this point in my life, I am always devastated, I always feel cheated and shattered.

Happy 4th of July!

Even though it is the 5th of July here in New Zealand I am still celebrating. Technically we celebrated last night, which was amazing! I haven't celebrated the 4th in 3 years and last night was wonderful. Brendan and I invited four other couples over to have a lasagna dinner ( I know, I know) I wish we had BBQ but it was raining. We had a great dinner followed by Fireworks in the rain. We had heaps of fireworks left over from Guy-Fawks day (English holiday) So we had a blast lighting heaps of cool fireworks off in the rain. Of course the boys got bored and started to make bombs... GREAT.

The only reason we get to celebrate this amazing holiday is because of the wonderful service members who fight for our country and keep the USA safe. So Thank you too all past, present, and future members of the US military. Happy Independence Day America!!

" Woah, did she just write that??"

Ok so I am subscribed to a few blogs that I love to read. One in particular is a grieving mother who has just lost her beautiful baby girl, and it is the most honest and well written blog I have ever read.
Heather pours her heart and soul out to her blog. Yesterday she wrote a very honest blog about how upset she is. Some random reader pretty much told her to suck it up and quit bitching. Now, I am not kidding when I mean this woman left a comment that would shatter a woman's heart even if she hadn't lost a baby. It broke my heart to even see such a cruel comment. Heather and her husband Mike are going through a parents worst nightmare and someone has the audacity to tell them that their personal thoughts are stupid???? No way! needless to say there was plenty of back up. This was by far the best reply left to the horrible commenter.


Please do the world a favor and go **** yourself. If you don’t want to read the blog anymore, just stop coming here. There was no need to exacerbate some one else’s pain with that kind of thoughtless, heartless and vicious comment.

What the **** should she write about? Rainbows, puppies and kittens. Apparently you don’t know that writing IS therapy, you cock-juggling thundercunt. (sorry I couldn't edit the best part lol)

I am so sick of people taking advantage of the anonymity of the internet to be so damn cruel to others. Grow a pair, Kelly and come tell someone that shit to their face.

WOW! Now I am not trying to condone internet hate out there, but that comment not only sparked a fire on the blog site but this response above had everyone in fits of laughter. Amazing. I am always amazing at the power of words. What we can express with words just makes living that much better. I pray for Heather and Mike. I don't know them, I probably will never "know" them. I do pray for them though.

Be grateful for all you have in life. You will never ever know what tomorrow will bring.
