Bake Sale & Halloween FAIL

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I don't know what was wrong with me lately but today I had both a Bake Sale and Halloween FAIL.

For our upcoming Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk, we are doing a Bake Sale at work and I (without consulting reality apparently) signed up to bring to multiple loafs of bread and a bunch of brownies. Why didn't anyone remind me that was a bad idea with a 2 year old and a 7 month old running the house?

Yeah, so needless to say I'm just starting to bake now, my Banana and Apple Cinnamon bread required a cup of water, a 1/4 cup of oil and two eggs each (that's and my delicious, homemade, super chocolatey brownies that I was envisioning were also turned into box-o-brownies with sprinkles on top that now have three different kinds of oil in them because I didn't even think to check to make sure we had everything.

That's right...Canola, Vegetable and EVOO all in the same brownie mix because I could barely muster up the 1/2 cup that I needed.

My poor coworkers.

I'll probably push the homemade cupcakes that my friend is making first and save my "Triple Threat" brownies for the poor suckers at the end.

To top off this wonderful day, I had to order Squishy Halloween Costume #2 less than a week before Halloween. Yup. It took me days/weeks to figure out what they were going to be for Halloween and you guessed it, the costumes were store-bought just like my lame-o brownies and that didn't even work! Emma's is too big, and Squishy's is WAY too big.

Apparently, Emma is like HALF the size of a regular toddler and of course the infant size didn't fit her and despite Squishy gaining like a pound an hour his first few months, he leveled off and now doesn't fit his costume even though I ordered it by weight.

::: double sigh :::

Tomorrow's another day though right?
