And the car went EEEEEKKKK!!!!!!!!

Today was a marvelous day!

Got a couple of pictures of Robert De Niro, was almost plowed into by John Travolta, and green spaghetti and cheese on the menu.

Wait, I'm sorry.

You need me to back up, right?

Thought so!

Ok, so Robert De Niro and John Travolta were in town this weekend shooting some scenes, where I work, for a movie called "Killing Season" set to debut in 2014. Well.... You see, I got all dolled up and camera ready, and did you know, I wasn't needed?! Poo.

But anyways, I showed up Saturday morning, unaware of the "Menses" being around.

Complete shock to me to have to get security clearance to groom a donkey.

I won't bore you with the details.

Trucks, trailers, SUVS, RVS (Jt's) and police scattered about.

YES. I did feel high and mighty to be allowed in.... even if it was to just brush a dirty donkey ;)

I was able to snap a few shots, then was quickly told to DELETE them. HAHA. CLassic.

So, I knew today was the day for filming. And of course, knowing I wouldn't be permitted to play, I showed up anyways just to "check in on my menses"

Waited and waited, and nothing. Just some fancy food, co-workers, and delta security guards. {I can't help but say: SAHCUUUR-ITEE-- SAHCUUUR-ITEE}

hahaha. ANYWHO.

On my way BACK to the place of filimg, PINE MOUNTAIN GOLD MUSEUM!!!, I was coming around a sharp turn when all of a sudden there is John Travolta's RV. I had to hit the brakes and swerve. Luckily the driver, whom I assume isn't used to driving these hur backwoods roads, hahaha, but he just waved and smiled. Is it bad that I kind of wished we swiped just a tad, enough to stop and get out!? ;) hahaha.

I snapped a few shots of Mr. De Niro-- but he is sneaky and covered up in a few layers. But I know it was you mister! Don't hide! ;)
Needless to say, Kuppy Kakes will be making their celebrity appreance at a later time. :(

Anywhoodles, that's my story.

Now, tonight my son chose Green Eggs and Ham for our themed dinner. Well super forgetful mommy forgot to buy extra egss and I only had 6. I had to make spaghetti and cheese, no way I could make that PLUS eggs. So, he agreed to have GREEN spaghetti and cheese.

BEST. BATCH. EVER. Might make it green more often!

Parker Family Staple

1 lb. of angel hair pasta
10 eggs; beaten
1-2 cups of whole milk
salt, pepper, and white pepper to tasta
1- 16 oz block of sharp cheddar cheese; sliced thin
2 cups of sharp cheddar cheese; shredded

Boil pasta until Al Dente- 7 min.
Then whisk eggs and milk together- add salt and peppers
Spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
Drain pasta and place into baking dish, take 1 cup of shredded cheese and sprinkle on top, take your hands and just quickly (because pasta will be hot) mix it up and work it in. Next pour egg mixture over the pasta. Make sure it is in an even layer in dish. Place sliced cheese on top, then take the other cup of shredded cheese and top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 min- or until egg is white and cheese is melted and lightly browned.
Green food dye is optional. :)


Off to beddy bye!

Happy "Lots o'love and choking on lots'o chocolates" Day!


We have started a new tradition in our home on V-DAY.

One of us, Kuppy or Mr. Kakes, will make a big dinner and decorate in our own style. This year, the first year, I started it.

I forgot to snap a pic of the feast on the table, which is kewl, I wouldn't want to see the way we eat.
Me and my mini kake went to the store in hopes to not go crazy and blow our entire grocery budget on one meal. With that being said, I literally spent $90.00 on one meal & decorations.

My Mini, she gets carried away with her decorations! ;)

When we got to the house, Daddy was home, rut roh. Turns out he had to work that night.....Bleh. Buttface.
We decorated the table real quick and I cooked dinner.

On the menu:
mini kakes: dino nuggets, tater tots, broccoli, and whatever they chose from "the platter".
kuppy & mr kakes:
Shrimp cocktail
Cooked seasoned shrimp {cayenne, chili powder, garlic, onion, white pepper, black pepper}
Crab Legs
Steamed fresh broccoli
Baked potatoes {which sat in the oven the entire time we ate dinner and were promptly thrown out}
AND our assortment of goodies.


I bought a cheap little plastic red 5 slot serving tray.........

and proceeded to fil it full of the crap I hide away from my children. Call it a momentary loss of sanity.

We had Riesens, DOTS, Flipz {chocolate covered pretzels}, Fudge candy hearts and crispy candy hearts.
AND an entire container of assorted valentines butter cookies.



What are your plans for this Hallmark Holiday?

Since the mini mr kakes is at school, mini kakes and I, made lunch.

We decided to ditch the gooey hearts and make Octopus hotdogs and Seaweed Pasta.

And it is also super easy and fun for the kids to help with.

Just start 1 in from top of dog and make 4 slits around, creating 8 legs.
Then boil and place atop a bed of garden delight fettucine {seaweed} and your done!

Love- Kuppy

Already litter box trained, snuggles with a stuffed horse and pushes pink rabbits to his pooh. SUCH A BOY.
He is 3 weeks old now and such a sweetehart.
Hates baths, LOVES lotion rub downs.
Loathes tiny sweaters, Loves puppy kisses from Lucy.

Adorable huh? ;) Happy Valentine's Day to me!
