Cake and tattoos

I couldn't decide on the title of this post...should it be "cake and tattoos" or "things that make you feel good but probably aren't good for you"...what a quandary....



Today I made a straight-out-the-box strawberry cake. Probably not a good move. O.K. so most definitely not a good move, cause I may as well take that piece of cake and slap it right on my thigh because that's exactly where it's going. I wasn't going to cut it until tomorrow when I go to my sisters house but I decided I needed to taste it first and make sure it was good. Ahemmm...It was good...so good. Maybe even better because I didn't have to mess the kitchen up making it from scratch. Bad!

So here I am in heaven eating my strawberry cake when Maddie comes up wanting to "make a tattoo" on my leg with a pen....I thought about how good it would feel to have someone rub my leg while I ate my cake. I mean let's face it, how often does anyone offer to rub your legs? I know it's not technically "rubbing" but I'll take what I can get. So I told her sure she could make one little tattoo on my leg and that's all.....well she got to drawing and it felt so good that I didn't tell her to stop, and even offered her my other leg when she ran out of space...and in the end I thought about it....What did I gain from these few moments of pleasure? Fat thighs with cheap tattoos on them that will probably take days to wash off... Was it worth it? ...I think it was. Cake and a leg rub? Are you kidding? And to look on the bright side, there is more cake left and now there will be more room on my leg for tattoos. So there you have it. My "little-something-to-look-forward-to" for tomorrow. Oh the joys of mommyhood!

Sometimes you just need a straight up white flour, artificially flavored, unrefined sugar fix.

Ok, my first thought was "That crazy girl blogs at midnight!" but now I see that you were on a sugar high! Samantha, I sure wish our circles over-lapped and that we could be great girlfriends! You're a hoot!

I was looking up close at the "tatoo" picture to see the artwork, my three year old walked by and approved, now he probably has ideas of his own :) (He also commented, "Ooo those are pretty fingernails" I think he meant toe nails).

Awesome way to enjoy cake. I'm with ya! Oh, a little rubbing alcohol and you'll have tons of space for more tattoos...

Oh, my Sam. This is just a hoot and sounds like soooo much fun. I think I'll make a plan like this for Monday.
One question...do you need to have your legs shaved first???
