Boo Cake Balls

Tonight I made one of my favorites....Red Velvet Cake Balls.


I made these for Zach's work and my work...it's my little 'treat' for them.

Recipe:

Bake your red velvet cake (any cake flavor will do, I just love Red Velvet)
Let cool for about 20-30 minutes
While warm crumble up in a large bowl and mix with the icing of your choice, I prefer cream cheese icing.
Place bowl in refrigerator to let cool for one hour

When done, proceed to rolling up your balls...be warned this can be messy.

Once your done, melt your white chocolate (I use almond bark) and dunk your balls in your chocolate...

Decorate if wanted, or serve the way they are... I let them cool in the fridge over night before serving for the chocolate has time to set.

SUPER easy recipe, a little time consuming but super easy and YUMMMMMY :)

Stressed

I don't know what it is, but lately I can honestly say I am beyond stressed. About what you ask? I'm not exactly sure, there has been a lot of things going on lately...

There has been alot on my mind...

I often wonder about my moms health, it's declining and it will only be a matter of months probably before she is in a wheelchair for good. She is beyond sad, I'm beyond sad for her. We saw it coming, but it's still not easy...losing your mobility is hard, and a hard to accept.

This is my first Holiday season in retail...that right there spells S-T-R-E-S-S! I already work long hours, but even longer hours will be coming along. I think it's just recently hit me that I will be working on Christmas Eve this year, and late at that...that means I'll either be late to Christmas celebration with family if I'll even be able to make it at all.

Then you have family in general, I know it's impossible for family (and friends) to be there for you 24/7 and I'm not exactly asking for that...maybe I'm just a 26 year old baby who is having a hard couple months and wants her family there for her...but it seems they only ask how I am when I write about it on here, or write a status on facebook...I guess I just need a hug...a BIG hug, and maybe a how are you. (I know, wah..wah...wah, can I complain any more?!!)

Then you have my health...it always weighs heavy on my heart...yes THANK THE GOOD LORD, nothing is wrong with my thyroid and my swollen lymph nodes are nothing (thank God!) but it's hard not to think about our journey at times...God has a special plan for Zach and I...we know this; we believe in this...and we have faith. But we still have our weak moments at times.

I could go on...it seems when your stressed things pile up fast, but I'm not going to waste y'alls time by listing my mile long list of 'poor me moments'... :) I'll be ok! In fact Zach promised to make me a Chocolate Sundae this afternoon, so that's already made things somewhat better.... :) I know, I know, I'm cheating on my diet...but you have to every now and then! :)

By the way...if you have my email address (the grandecom.net one) saved in your computer, please change it... it's now tiffpifer@yahoo.com I have been unable to respond to emails via my phone, which has been delaying some of my email responses back to y'all...so please send any emails to my yahoo account :)

A Preview just for You!

Zach and I, along with all 3 dogs, have recently had family pictures taken by the sweet Khim, at Snaptasticshots. She has posted a few 'previews' for us and I can hardly wait to see the rest...

Here is a sneak-peak.

Feeling a bit gray...

*I'm really digging my new gray finger nail polish...I was never into the grays, browns or darker (dull) colors until recently..



*I have been in a funk today, I blame it on being sick for two weeks straight, hopefully with my new meds I'll be out of this funk soon :)

*I did get all my blood test back and am happy to announce there is NOTHING wrong with my thyroid, the cyst are so small and are not effecting my thyroid at all- nor is this the cause/added caused to my infertility.

*I have a 'blogger' app on my phone now, so hopefully I'll be able to post a little more now :)

*Such a random blog post I know...

My Big Green Tractor

The Heart of Texas Fair and Rodeo is in town (yay!), another reason why I love fall oh so much. Ashley and James went with Zach and I the other night to go watch Arron Watson...it was so crowded so we stayed near the back, which just so happened to be next to all of the 'big green tractors', we couldn't help but sneak some photos...






Love our Cowboys :)

FALL

I love fall, I love the smell in the air, the smell of pumpkin spice candles, I love how Starbucks starts making there holiday coffee....and I truly truly truly love to decorate for fall...my house is 98% done in fall colors anyways, just because I love them that much (they make for a cozy house)...

WELCOME FALL!!


Here are just a 'few' pics of my decorations....

Not really a 'fall' decoration, but I dress up things in my house with Raffia...


I have ivory candles here, however for fall I just replace them with my pumpkins...

Ultrasound Results

I got a call from my Dr. today. My lymph nodes on my neck are benign, they are just swollen. However I have 2 cyst on my thyroid, one on each side. My Dr. told me that these cyst were both benign as well, and I would not require surgery--however since thyroid problems can be a cause of infertility they are sending my ultrasound results to my OBGYN.

My OBGYN called me and he wants me to come in tomorrow morning for intense thyroid blood work, it will take about a week to get the results of this blood work, but this will tell us where we need to go forward with these cyst.

Although I am thankful and excited to know that I do not have any sort of cancer, and most likely will not have to have surgery, I hate to hear that more could be wrong...although if these cyst are one of the causes that I am infertile-getting it fixed will hopefully increase my chances of conceiving a child of our own.

Thank you everyone for the sweet emails and prayers, I will keep y'all posted...

Home Sick

I am home sick today...this upper respiratory infection is a hard one to shake! I feel like I have been ran over by an eighteen wheeler! Low grade fever, itchy throat, coughing my lungs up...sigh!

I wish I felt good enough to clean or do something productive around the house, that would make being off today worth it since I always work so late...but to be honest all I feel like doing is curling up in bed and sleeping...

I guess there's always tomorrow to clean...haha....my pillow is calling my name! Hopefully today I can upload some pictures from our trip and this weekend...I have a lot to share!

(I haven't gotten any results back from my ultrasound just yet, I am sure I will hear something today!)
