The entire box is made from cake and then covered in fondant. The packing material is air popped popcorn! ha ha I used an airbrush to distress the box so that it looked beaten up and old, I hope that translates in the pictures.
OK, well it's off to watch the SF Giants win, I'll be back for Fat Tuesday and keep checking back for more cakes soon!

I spoke with my friend Christina, who is a raw foods chef... no really... raw foods chef./... and she's amazing!!!
Can you believe that this pecan pie is raw!?!?!?! Seriously, Christina made one for me (and my mom) for Thanksgiving last year and it was stinking great! A raw pie, really, it's AMAZING!!!
Then, I was at the gym yesterday and spoke to a girl who's daughter is in my son's gymnastics class, she said she works at a weight loss clinic and is around this stuff all day. I told her about my plight and she was astounded that I weigh 143..."My guess would be 130, 132, no more than that." I nearly hugged the girl right then and there!!! She said don't worry about the numbers, like I haven't hared that before, but worry about doing SOMETHING active for 30 minutes twice a day.... that got my wheels a turning.... I'm loving this fall weather... so I think that no matter what... I'm going to make time to take a walk... nothing forever long, but for at least 30 minutes... then maybe I can make sure Evan goes outside and he can ride his bike or we can play soccer or something else for another 30 minutes at some point.... I wonder if shopping counts as being active.... hummm??? ha ha ha
OK, so that's where i"m at this week... learned some stuff, met some new people, gained 2 lbs, but I think I'm going to be OK. Stay tuned for next week when I report back on my new diet and way of life. Ta ta for now!

So after all of that you can guess my astonishment when the little progress line stopped moving UNDER my old one... yeah, that little progress tracker stopped, my heart lept and i actually smiled.... "no way," I actually said out loud, "please, just let it be at least a pound, I'd be stoked with losing a pound this week, I don't deserve it, but I'll take it!" I clicked the little button that says weight and......
Hummm baby..... I'm down 9 pounds from when I started! 9! I'm so excited... I think I actually feel better... I think I actually may go to the gym today.... then I'm going to costco! I need food! hahahah ok so I plan on a cart full of veggies and fruit, but wooohooo!!! I'm doing cartwheels on the inside. And as for that little grunting man in my wii.... pppphhhhtttttt..... that's my tongue, spraying spit all over you. Stop grunting when I get on the scale, or i'll be forced to beat you!
Happy ending (or beginning, I haven't decided yet) to my week. I'll see ya'll again soon!

The candy bars are huge and wrapped in a custom printed paper wrapper. The golden tickets are worded just like the ones from the movie (Gene Wilder version of course) and printed on metallic gold cardstock that I found at Michael's. I totally LOVE the outcome of these... as a kid, I would have totally hugged the person who invited me to their party by way of candy bar! ha ha ha
Ok, I'm still not feeling well, totally didn't go to the gym today, and I'm being a luff sitting on my couch watching HLN... Will I ever be well??? I'm going to make some hot tea and hope that helps my throat feel any better, wish me luck!
Ahhhhhhhhhh..... Saturday....... I love Saturday..... well.. sorta. He he he! I Love Saturday Challenges though!!!! I love how they give yo...
