I have come to the realization it has been exactly a month since I've updated here. Its been a crazy month: I started it in Indiana at a wedding (having just returned from one the previous weekend in Atlanta) which was followed up by my parents 30th anniversary party and my sister's engagement party. The following weekend was my sister's fiance's birthday, and my mom had bariatric surgery earlier that week. Follow the weekend after that with father's day, and before I know it, its the end of June.
Anyways, the point of the post: I baked another cake!! Lookit:
It's a carrot cake alright, it looked scrumptious (as its going to a party tomorrow for the 4th, I can't have some yet. Maybe I'll comment on this post tomorrow and tell you how it is! This makes cake #3 in my "relearn to bake" thing I'm on right now, the first being the stargate cake from a couple months ago, and a birthday cake for Brandon, which looked nice until my sister found the neon dinosaur sprinkles and the primary colored race car sprinkles and drenched the cake in it. Add to the three cakes two batches of cookies, orange cinnamon buns, and some cheese garlic buscuits (which i love dearly), i think i'm finally beginning to relearn it all! (and my cake decorating skills have definitely improved!)
So, following discussions on the previous posts, fignewton made a request for another icon, so I finally found some time to get to it. I'm also posting the rest of the first set I made when I did Janet Alphabet Soup icons.
While the transition of many of you on my friends list to Dreamwidth is underway, I figured this might be a good time to start a new habit: recapping my Stargate fandom updates here. I'm not interested in cross posting and I want to keep this journal as it has always been (which is a custom blend of everything, not just fandom) but more and more people I friend here are stargaters, and I eat to share my glee with ya'alls too. I haven't decided yet, but I may choose to also make an RSS feed also for lj.
My next post will be the first of many (hopefully!) Stargate update friday!
What would you like to see more of here (samantilles@LJ)?
How should I focus my DW blog?
How should I refocus my DW blog? (more options:)
Would you be interested in reading about the development of my new home (like pictures of the construction site, decoration options, etc.)?
So, today I bought a condo. 1400 sq feet all to myself!! This is my first home-literally I've never even rented an apartment before! I never did see why I should be paying someone elses mortgage with renting. So today I signed the contract to build and buy my first home!! I picked out my cabinets, countertops, carpeting and tiling options, as well as cable and phone jack locations!! *whew*. It's been a bit whirlwind!!! But If I thought I lived cheaply before, well now all my entertainment will be online (as I won't be able to afford going out anymore) so yeah for fanfic!! Will go braindead now...

So I should be happy it is in the 60s and not snowing. I am incredibly happy I have a fully charged iPhone to keep me entertained... And I was supposed to be out of the office for over an hour anyways running errands.
Because those are my keys and my purse in my locked car. I couldn't stop the door closing as I was loading stuff in the car and dumping out a can of soda... Now I'm stuck in a parking lot. I should be happy I have AAA and they'll be here in an hour.
