Next Batch of Cupcakes: Part 4

"I'm a mom. And it has brought so much joy and pain. The hardest question anyone ever asks me is how many kids I have. Do I answer 2 or 7? I gave birth to sextuplets two and a half years ago. Only one survived.

On my blog, Little Green Pastures, I chronicle my journey through grief and the joy of raising a brilliant son with cerebral palsey and a darling girl who turns 1 this week!
I live life fully, all the while longing for Heaven.
And I really, really like cupcakes."

I recently blogged about grieving during the Holidays here.

Meet Donya aka CrookedEyebrow

"I love movies, but one movie I can watch over and over again would be Tommy Boy. Who can resist "fat guy in a little coat?" Definitely not I. "was there a niner in there?" You have to laugh in life, right?

I think I am funnier than I really am and can usually crack myself up on a daily basis, meanwhile my family just rolls their eyes and nods their heads. But I'm cool with it. Hence I am a self-proclaimed dork.

Some may not know that I rode motorcycles in high school and for two years in a row, rode as a passenger in a huge line of Harley Davidsons to our nations capital. Seeing parts of our country on a motorcycle is and was certainly a site I will never forget. Nor the sunburnt face and the bugs on my shirt. (snicker)

I am usually shy and slow to warm up to meeting new people, so why not share an embarrassing story to break the ice?:

When my husband and I first started dating we were still in that somewhat awkward, trying to impress one another phase. Me being a nervous speaker, was trying to find something to talk about as we were driving one night. So I was quietly looking out the window and we pulled up to a stop sign I read the restaurants sign.

Friday special: AYCE fish $11.99

I looked at him and said, " AYCE fish? what kind of fish is that? Like a lake perch?"

I swear time stood still and he stared at me, then cracked a smile and then politely told me, "you mean all you can eat fish dinner?". Oh man, I was so embarrassed. To this day anytime we see AYCE used, we crack up.

See you at Cupcake 10!

Samara blogs at Simplicity in the Suburbs
"I am a wife, mama and stepmom blogger in suburban MN. In five years time I met and married my husband becoming a wife and stepmom, had a son, lost my mom and had a daughter.

I'm told I have an old soul. I am passionate about living my life everyday with my children in the moment and lose sight and re-remember over and over and over again"

Ok, so that photo of me makes me feel awkward. I really wanted to send one of Ivy and me together, but my husband liked this one better. I feel so exposed without a baby in front of me. :)

Can't wait to meet all of you.

Okay, so I'm still getting my haircut, but not for Cupcake, for the split ends. For reals.

The new color? Probably for Cupcake.

But, maybe I'll leave the brows alone. Maybe.

Brianna said...

Also, I want to wear that outfit (that I'm wearing in the pic) to cupcake. But now you've all seen it. Does anyone mind if I wear it again? I really like it.

And Steph. You're beautiful.

Girls, I am neither cutting my hair nor looking cute. Elastic pants and glasses all the way, here!
