Too much to handle

This week has been pretty crazy. Let me fill you in.
Tuesday I went to my first cake decorating class at Michaels. We learned how to fill a bag with icing and make some simple designs. I didn't learn anything new, but it was only the first class. The next class we are going to learn how to ice a cake :)
Wednesday I was supossed to go observe my friend Stacey. It rained all night Tuesday night and showed no signs of stopping. She sent me a message Wed. morning telling me I could come the following day since the weather was so bad. I decided to take her up on that offer. I was already up at 7am, so I made breakfast and watched Supernatural and Angel. Around 5pm my mom called me into the living room because she heard something on the TV about a tornado in Segoville (a town close by). We started watching the news and all of a sudden there was a tornado on the screen. My mom called my uncle (who lives in Segoville) to make sure he knew there was a tornado. Then the news said it was heading in our direction. Shortly after we heard the sirens and it started pouring down rain. Then the news said it wasn't heading for us anymore. But then there was another tornado downtown. We watched it tear right across the Trinity River. It went right over where I used to work. It was insane! We always get tornado warnings, but we never actually have them this close. Here is a picture I found of the tornado that went through downtown.

Luckily none of my family got any damage. But my uncle did make it on the news!

Thursday I made it out to observe my friend. It was a lot of fun watching the young kids. And it made me feel like I'm making the right decision to teach. There was one little boy who had just become a big brother and he was telling his teacher that he was excited to be a big brother and he would have to beat up his sister's boyfriends because that's what brothers do. It was so cute! Hopefully I will get to go back this week to do some more observing.
The rest of the day Thursday was very productive. I came home and did some school work. Later in the day I did some organizing and crocheting. I still have 35 granny squares to make before I can put my blanket together. I also spent the entire day listening to the new Interpol album. It's beyond wonderful and made me fall in love with them all over again.
Friday I slept in and met Amber for dinner. We ate at Luna de Noche and I had their yummy tortilla soup. Afterwards we went to the movies to see Going the Distance. It was such a cute and funny movie. I laughed through the entire movie. We made it a double feature and saw Resident Evil - Afterlife. That was my first 3D movie. It definietly made it scarier when zombies jumped out at you!
Saturday Mom and I went to the Dallas Flea. It wasn't as big as I thought it would be, but there was some cute stuff there. I found the most wonderful cake balls. There is a lady from Austin who makes all kinds of cake balls. She was giving out free samples, so we tried the wedding cake and key lime balls. To die for!! We bought 3 boxes :) Luckily she ships, so you have to check out her website.
After the Flea Market we went to Tart Bakery. It's a super cute bakery that does cakes, cupcakes, whoopie pies, and other pasteries. We got a lemon cupcake and some more cake balls.

Then we went down the street to City Craft. It's a super cool fabric store. I was overwhlemed by all the pretty fabric. I bought some cute fabric, and I will definitely be going back for more!

We went to Breadwinners for brunch. We had never been there, but it was so yummy. We both got the San Antonio scramble: eggs, black beans, cheese, salsa, sour cream and potatoes.

After eating we drove out to Southlake to the Three Dog Bakery. We got the dogs some yummy treats: doggie donuts, cookies, and carrot cake. I took a picture of the goodies. They look like they are for humans!

Here is the fabric I got from City Craft. I think the glasses fabric is my favorite!

And here are the cake balls we got. So yummy!!

The dogs were also excited for their yummy treats. For some reason Roxy is camera shy. She immediately hides when I get the camera out.

So scary about the Tornado! Glad you and your family are safe.

My friend just finished her cake decoration class from Michaels and she really enjoyed it. I did too, because I got to eat lots of yummy pretty cakes!

And those cake balls. YUM.
