What to do, what to do?
Do you ever plan a get together or a night out with your girls and then have no idea what to do? You set the date, you set the time and then you hit that wall. What do you guys want to do?
Dinner and gossip are always good, but after a while talking about the latest fashion faux pas of that “friend” you all have can get kind of old. I’m kidding!! We never do that!
Hitting the “club” just isn’t what it used to be, say 15 years ago. Back then you were more likely to be on the prowl for a man rather than on a speed race away from the house and kids. I just can’t stomach the bad drinks and loud music like I used to. I’ve spent all week listening to zombie tales and video games, I don’t want to spend my time out with the same noises going on in the background.
There is always shopping, but everyone is pinching pennies these days. While I love me some Marshalls, it’s not exactly the escape with the girls I’m looking for.
Spa trip! Those are relaxing, and I think we will highlight some in a future episode, but what we want is a little fun!
While we are of course about looking good and feeling good on Real Women/Real Sexy, I am also all about finding ways to have a good time with my friends out of the norm and bringing you guys along. See our first episode of the Erotic White Elephant for example!
If you read my blog before the show began to air you might have read my Random Review about Cake Boss. I am a TLC (The Learning Channel) addict! I love everything on that channel and can waste away an entire weekend watching Cake Boss, I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant and Toddlers and Tiaras!
Last year around Valentine’s Day I had been on a TLC binge watching The Next Great Baker. I finally broke and couldn’t take the sight of cupcakes and fondant anymore. I was digging through my pantry for sweets and all I could find were raisins and prepackaged Rice Krispie Treats. You know that feeling, right? I have to have something cake like with icing, and I have to have it NOW, DAMN IT!
So, I loaded my kids up in the car and headed to a little bakery, Bliss, on the square in McDonough, Ga. I had seen it for months and now it was calling to me! When I walked in I knew I had to do an article in my Examiner column about this adorable place and it’s owner, Shelley. While I was there Shelley and I struck up a conversation and she told me about the cake decorating classes they have and all the fun stuff they do at the bakery that I hadn’t heard of before. This, I thought, is something we need to do on Real Women/Real Sexy. What’s sexier than women decorating cakes in cute little aprons? So we began to plan! There is always something new and fun to do, you just have to get creative!
I won’t bother telling you what we planned, I’ll just show you what we did instead!
Without further ado, I give you Real Women/Real Sexy: Bodacious Bake-Off at my friend Shelley’s cake studio, Bliss.
