Well tomorrow is the day I officially start back to school. I did my orientation and orientation seminar yesterday. Am I nervous...uh yeah not sure if I am going to do so well with the whole seminar online thing. I sure hope I get it. Anyway I work tomorrow, then log onto my two classes...which one of them sounds great the other is basically online learning for the health science professions lol. blah...anyway I have 5 weeks to decide if this is going to be right for me or not. So that's what's going on here. Waiting to see if my manager is going to add me to the wilton staff, the hours then would be great. Well I'm off for now. I'll chat with ya soon. I'll let you know how my first day goes...guess i'll be changing the name of my blog soon...hahahah kinda funny aspiring cake lady goes into nutrition science. oh well who knows what i'll be when I grow up!

So things are moving way faster than I thought they were going to! I am actually going to be starting school this Wednesday! Insane I know!!!! So this will put me on my path of Nutrition Science...kinda funny for someone who wants to be a cake lady, isn't it? I'm super excited with how many different directions I can go in this field and hopefully one day maybe help out people who have been through Gastric Bypass like I have to help them before during and after. Or maybe I can teach nutrition? I'd love to do that!!! ugghhhh What the hell do I want to be when i grow up? So anyway. Things are putting right along here. Had three freaking snow days last week with the kids. That was nice at first but I can't say I'm not happy they are going to school tomorrow and I am going to work!!! I am also wondering if my life will ever slow down? OMG why does it always seem like it's go go go??? Anyway I gotta get to bed but just wanted to let everyone know what's going on this way! I start school Wednesday wooot!

Well I got a response into my getting certification to be a wilton method instructor for cake decorating. I guess I am now certified. lol. Also I took yet another new step and that was checking into colleges online ones to get my bachelors in nutrition. Yup I really don't want to know what I want to be when I grow up. What in the world is up with that????? I think with my background in Culinary Arts, my surgery etc, that Nutrition is a good direction for me. That and I loved my nutrition classes in JWU. But I also had the best instructor ever. So That's what's new...Guess I'll wait to see what the powers that be want for my life. I will either get a job with the store that remains nameless as a cake decorating instructor (while going to school for a BS in Nutrition) or I will just be a full time student and part time pea on at my place of employment. Either way I will keep making my cakes I like to do and will keep on trucking on my quest to figure out what the hell I wanna be!

Well I'm guessing I took my first step. THe cake lady we currently have at my place of employment that teaches the classes is not flexible in her schedule. Making it hard for regular moms and other people to take her class. So I took my first step in trying to get Certified as a Wilton Method Instructor. If I can get certified with them i could possibly become an instructor where I work, which would be better hours for me anyway. I have already taken the classes but it was years ago and I'm hoping they won't hold that against me and they'll just give me time to do some refreshers. So step one I guess is done, now I just wait to see what they say. I guess if I get certified and they won't let me be an instructor at my place of business (not allowed to say the name per a form I had to sign...lol) I am hoping that I can at least teach the Wilton method out of my own house? maybe? who knows...All I can do is hope for the best!

So I am guessing this is going to be my new blog theme. I really want to be a cake designer. So I’m kind of working on that. Here and there. I make cakes for my friends, my kids and just for fun. I love to decorate cakes, cupcakes, cookies etc. For now I do it just for fun! But I really want one day to be super awesome at it and make a huge business out of it. But for now I’ll stick to being a full time mom and part time Michaels employee. I’m going to try to blog here more than my old depressing blog so hopefully it will turn out well and if it doesn’t get on to me about it and I’ll make sure to post more! I will also keep you all updated on my weight loss...it's still going well...I think I'm down like 196 lbs from 2 years ago! amazing!
