Catching Up on The Latest Here at Home...

White Coconut Cupcake, Cream Cheese/Coconut

Hi Guys!! It's been a while since I've been on here.
I got caught up with trying to put up another business
and family matters. Missed updating my page and
finally made the time to get it done and visit my friends
in blog land!

What kind of business you ask? Umm,
guessed right, Baking Cupcakes..So it's not as easy
as I thought it was going to be. But I'm going through
with it still because it's something I love to do and
it makes me happy. Another thing is, I'd love to
share it with my kids and pass it on to them. Check
out the new logo I've been working on. We also
have a new page up for it as well here.


I'm currently trying to get licensed to sell to the
public and all that legal stuff. Other than that it's
trying to deal with my teenagers and their attitudes.
My 16 dd has recently become rebellious and has
been stressing me lately. The past 4 days has
been real crazy for all of us. So far she's run away
and hid out at her friends house, because she
thinks they do more fun things there..than we do
at home and she'd rather live there.

I'll admit $$ is tight here as I'm trying to get
this stuff going here and getting them back in
to school. So it hasn't been easy, but I know
one of these days we'll look back at it and know
it was just part of the path to a better future.

This morning I woke at 4 am to give my thanks
and had a heart to heart with my older girls and
ironed things out with a hug and prayer.

A Day at The Set...

photo credit: Lynch's

Today was a fun and nervous day for me.
I was reviewing a product for a week for a PR
agency and all I can say is that this product is
super awesome. I can't say what it is until it
comes out..I do know for sure that I would
definitely tell everyone to buy one!!

So the rep for the PR company calls me and
asks if I would be willing to be involved in the
commercial for this wonderful, new product
I just tested, so I said, sure..why not?
Let's just say I used this product to make
a polynesian specialty and we'll leave it at that.

I couldn't take pictures or anything there of
course..but I did meet some wonderful people
the makeup artist (she's a really great person,
and fun to talk with), the producer is really
funny and great to work with, The girl who
took care of all the digital stuff from the
camera guys..she was walking me through
everything and what to say when the producer
is talking to me. So it was really fun. The
lady who was preparing the food buffet is
great too, she said, that her step dad is Tongan
and we had a great conversation about her
community and family back home.

The crew had to relocate to another place
and so I was the last person at this area.
After they were done with me then everyone
started packing up the cameras, props and
stuff to move on to the next location. It ended
around 12 noon and lunch with the crew was
funny. Everyone is so nice and there was just
funny conversations all over the place. So this
is what it's like behind the scenes.

I'm glad to call it a day, since I was up stressing
the night before wondering how I was going
to do. It turned out to be alright in the end.

We ended the rest of the day in errands and
a warm family home evening. How did your
Monday go?

Friday Photo Flashback: Long lost photos..

Friday Photo Flashback

We were doing some spring cleaning at mom
and dad's home and my sister & daughters
found a long lost friend of mine, a photo
album/journal I kept from the late 80s to the
early 90s before I got married. I know, it's
Tuesday, and I'm participating in Friday Photo
Flashback from Alicia's page: More Than Words.

This photo is of my friend Lose (right) and 
I (left) it was taken at Cannon 2nd's Relief
Society Birthday Dance. I was 18 and she 
was 23 at the time. Those were fun times. 
Haven't seen Lose for like 16 years now. 
I hope I'll be able to run into her sometime
in the future.

Saturday Visit to Chucky Cheese

We haven't been to Chucky Cheese for
a while now. So I thought that a visit 
there would be good for the younger ones
since the older siblings are still having fun
in Hawaii, Laie of course. 

They've been down that they couldn't go
to another Lowes Build and Grow class, 
and everyone is still out there on their little
vacays. Except for Ami. He's been busy
at football camps for college. I hope he 
gets lucky because he really deserves it. 

He still lives with my first cousin Eddie
and wife, Lily. Eddie's a football coach 
at the high school in Lehi. So he thought 
it would be better to just let Ami stay 
with him so could try to get him trained
and ready for college football. 

Anyways, moving on to fun and games
at Chuck E Cheese! So as soon as we 
got in these two went nuts and were 
pulling me all over. Loni couldn't stay 
away from the bowling ball  and
the basketball hoop games. Nesi liked
riding on the merry go round, if that's 
what you call it. and playing the bumble
bee game where you catch the bees and
put them back in the beehive. 

All in all, it was a perfect day of fun, 
laughter and games that ended with 
a trip to Wal-mart for some new packs 
of socks and undies for the kids and 
then home to hit the sack and get 
ready for Sunday. How did your weekend
