First off, last night was the final episode to one of the classiest, stand up guy, comedian: Conan O'Brian. He quit his job of 7 months from The Tonight Show in such a Christian matter I hope the world sees that he was not only a comedian, but a mentor. If you didn't make it till the end, the last 10 mins of the show he gave a very real, heart felt speech, how he hates, hates, cynics, and that NBC has been his home for 20 years and all matters aside, still loves NBC. Also, my favorite is when he said being mean gets you no where so be NICE. Good bye Conan- To be Continued....
In Lovely Lady Cakes world. On Wed the 20th. I drove to Westlake a nice 45 min drive to the Pump Station with 50 mini cupcakes. There was strawberry, and Mint. I was asked to read in the store for story time. Well, this whole week has been raining cats and dogs. So my drive was a little more difficult than usual. The cupcakes made it dry. I love, Love this store for mommies and 1st born babies. Most of them were babies lying on the floor on their little tummy's with baby toys all around them. Sooo cute. I took the back road home toward the PCH, but was winding through mountains to get to the PCH praying that there would be no mud slides. Everything went just fine thank you Lord for protecting me and my family during this crazy weather!!! xoxo
This week was my one opportunity to serve my community. That's right I was summoned to Jury Dudy. I had reservations at first. I had to drive into Hollywood again in that pouring rain. Thank goodness for GPS! When I got there is actually flew by. I arrived at 8am on time of course. We had orientation, and that lasted till 11am. Only in (LA) there were plaques on the wall that Harrison Ford and other Actors had served at that location...LOL The judge wasn't ready to see us yet so he let us go to lunch early and return @1:30. When we all got back he said well I have bad news and good news. Bad: you won't be seeing me on Monday, and the Good: you get to leave. YEAH, easy breazzzy. I wont have to do this for 1 year. Deep down inside I was actually disappointed I really wanted to go inside the court room and experience it. Oh well....

Well, 2 nights ago, Damon and I helped out my friend with the opening of her store, The Pump Station. This is their third store. One in Santa Monica, Hollywood, and now Westlake. Damon and I helped pour drinks to all the guests and cute mommies in their cute moby wraps and the ambassadors of the city of Westlake, Ca. The drinks were so cute they were called "It's a boy", "It's a girl", the "Pumptini", and of course the "virgin Pumptini!" They cut the ribbon and the store was officially open. All I need to say is: "I'm in love with this store and I don't even have a kid." You would hear me saying to Damon "ohh we need that high chair (STOKKE). ohh we need that..." (when we have a kid of course)
They are your one stop shop for new moms. They answer all kinds of questions and classes to breast feeding classes, mommies and me classes so new moms can find joy in each other and make friends, baby sign language, Mommy Massages, and even baby and me music classes.
Of course Lovely Lady Cakes made 300 cupcakes for the event. Another amazing woman who works there made a boobie cake that said "breast are best." I didn't take any pics of my cupcakes since I was working behind the bar...
