Good morning and goodnight/I wake up at twilight

I hate the pressure to blog sometimes.

I would make a great novelist.

I often suffer from writer's block. And then occasional spurts of "I have 20 things to blog about right now, and there's funny dialogue running through my head! But.... oh wait.... it's not really kosher to post more than once a day."

People don't read your blog if you don't post enough, or if you post too often, or if you say too much, or you don't have cute pictures, blah blah blah. Oh well.

Random ramblings rolling in my head this week:

-I'm exhausted and feel ill... my only logical conclusion is West Nile.

-I'm ALMOST (like sooo close) to my pre-pregnancy weight!
I'm contemplating a 9 months there and back post--for your viewing pleasure ;)
Or to horrify myself into never getting pregnant again! I joke. I joke. Really, as a pat on the back for all the hard work I've done.

-I'm doing the conference-talk-a-day-before-next-gen-conference challenge.
It's fabulous! My favorite quote so far "The most important of all the commandments of God is the one that you are having the most difficulty keeping today" - President Harold B. Lee (Arise and Shine forth by Ann M Dibb)

It just reminds me not to get cocky because I don't sin a specific way, and that sin can be a slippery slop that starts with weakness in any area. May we all strive to be a little better.

-Oh and I need your bestest cupcake recipes! I'm the birthday baker for YW!!! (and since cupcakes are trendy and what not...)

Do yourself a favor, and make the butterbeer cupcakes. They are DIVINE. So. So. So. Good.

I also like the cherry almond vanilla ones.

I haven't gotten to try the others I've posted yet, but...

Also, YW Baker? Is that a real calling? Do the YW clean up after you are finished? Because that sounds like an awesome calling.

Hi Carla,
You can ask mom If you can look at my cake boss cookbook. There are some good recipes in there. The cream cheese frosting is the best.

Love Kim

The doctored cake recipe at is pretty good. I second the butterbeer cupcake suggestion. They really are DIVINE! especially with a tall frosty glass of butterbeer to wash them down! :)

Oh, and I also have a problem with going in fits and spurts in my blogging. I seem to be going through a slump right now...

Yay for almost getting to pre pregnancy weight. That's wonderful.

I just told you, but I'm definitely going to start reading the conference talks before the next one.

I have no recipes for you...I do the box kind :-)
