My friend, the cup-a-cake Queen!

If you have not already seen Ween's amazing cupcake creations.... you are missing out! My dear friend Ween Nee from high school has turned out to be one heck of a baker. A loving wife, restauranteur, baker and cupcake turned entrepreneur - she can do it all!! Adding to the list, she is also a part-time event coordinator helping out dear friends with their wedding!

To help Ween out with her passion for baking and cupcake business - Pete and I sent out a package and a half of holiday baking tools. The darling cupcake queen did two postings of thanks to us for the little gift.

You are so welcome WEEN!!
All we can do to help out our baker extraordinaire friend!

Here are some of her cupcake designs for the holiday season.
To see more of Ween's wonderful creations... check out her blog at cup-a-cakes.

Alex's Engagement

My dearest friend, Alex a.k.a. my Texas cowboy proposed to his girlfriend Ashley on Thanksgiving day. I last spoke to Alex less than 2 weeks ago as he was driving home after picking up the E-ring for Ashley. He had it all planned out... a Thanksgiving family getaway to the Biltmore Estates in North Carolina where he will propose to Ashley. Here are the pictures which I just received from him. Pete and I are so happy for him and Ashley! We can't wait to meet the future Mrs. Beasley!!

Alex & Ashley's Engagement

Congratulations Alex & Ashley on your engagement!

Thanksgiving 2007

Thanksgiving this year like always... was packed with family and friends at the Milizia household. Every Thanksgiving, we celebrated birthdays (Pete's and cousins, Ryan & Kyle). This year, Matt and Alicia are home - adding to the birthday celebration, Matt's birthday which fell on Thanksgiving this year. The total of people this year was 23 - we have reached a high number of 27 at one point :P This year's pictures from my camera was captured by Amelia... not that I was lazy... but was busy cooking, setting up tables, etc. Thanks a bunch Amelia!

Fashion alert...

Supposedly, Chele and I were shopping for Pete and Mathew's birthday gifts... we ended up shopping for ourselves. After a day at the mall and pre-thanksgiving/black Friday sales... this is what we have to show for... (Pete's included because he is so darn handsome and stylish :P)

Emails GONE! :(

I lost all my emails (buffalo.edu account) in my Outlook Express Inbox!! Somehow, after a really short blackout, more of a resetting in the power supply of our townhouse... my PC rebooted itself and lost all old emails! The most recent emails I have left in the inbox is dated January 22, 2006. AaacckkK!!! Some of you must be like... "Sher, did you backup?!" To which I would reply.... "Eerr... NO!" GUILTY!!

I had in the past moved emails which I have read to their respective categorized folders... the organizer I am. But lately, or to be precise... as of January 22nd, 2006 I had been really bad in moving my read emails to their respective folders. Serves me right, right?! I know for a fact that the chances of me revisiting old emails are slim.... however, there are days when I just want to go back and refer to (eg: papers, articles, picture attachments, etc.) them. There must have been a reason I saved them instead of instantly deleting upon reading!

*sigh.... okay Outlook Express, let's start a new.... starting from today. After reading each incoming email, I pledge to move selected emails to their respective folders and to delete and expunge all other not-for-keeps emails.

Disney's Enchanted

The holidays are not far from sight... and one of the best parts about them are holiday entertainments. I am speaking of holiday movies. Disney has a new installment for us... Enchanted. The girls and I are anxiously awaiting the date the movie premiers (opens on Thanksgiving eve).... don't know if that is a something I should be publicly admitting to, but it's a DISNEY film. You cannot say no to Disney! Holiday season, a princess, a prince and his sidekick squirrel in a bustling New York City and add McDreamy (for Chele) to the equation = you get DISNEY MAGIC!

Check out the trailer...
*Don't forget to turn off the music on the blog first! :D
