Weddings, Birthdays, and General Stressors

One of my very best friends in the world is getting married on Saturday. This is, in part, why I haven't been posting as regularly. I have been busy with many wedding things. Also, I have helped my baby sister celebrate her 12th birthday. When I really feel like she was just born yesterday. She's now taller than I am. Another of my friends also celebrated a birthday since the last time I posted.

I have been shoe shopping, run all over town trying to find someone to finish making my bridesmaids dress, gone to get a pedicure, made a birthday cake for my sister, and finished school for the semester (with a 101 average! Woo-hoo!).

Tomorrow I go to get a manicure and a spray tan (no time for a tanning bed!). Friday morning I get my hair colored, and Friday afternoon is the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner.

I have been, as I mentioned in a previous post, been dealing with a much larger insulin intake than I am used to. The past couple of days have been decent, blood sugar wise. I haven't had a number over 200 and have averaged, both days, below 140. I can't complain. This has been a little bit of stress relief, since I have been so worried about my blood sugars running high and my insulin intake.

So, here I go, into the month of May. Wish me luck.

Tomorrow is my 2nd anniversary on the pump, by the way.

Wow!! Everything does sound stressful. Good thing your numbers are doing well through all of this!!

I absolutely love that cake. I'm sure one of my daughters would love one like it. What are the circles made of...or is it some sort of candy?

Have fun at the wedding!!:-)

Good luck with all of that, hopefully it will all start to slow down soon.
The cake is gorgeous, in the first picture I thought it was a present!
Happy Pump-iversary!

Lynnea-the circles are made of royal icing. It hardens like candy and kind of tastes like necco waffers (if you know what thoes are). I put the royal icing into the circle shapes on wax paper and let it dry and then took them up and attached them to the cake with more royal icing.
