Messy Me, Local Buns, Mean Breakfast

Very soon I am going to give you a video/photo tour of the biggest obstacle of my life.
That being, my ridiculous pile habits.
Here and there, tucked away, hidden by the fa├žade of neatness,
are my many piles of papers, purchases, and pressures of life.
I can't seem to break away from it. 
No amount of tubs, accordion files, or manila folders have the ability to change my cold, disorganized soul.

 (Said perfectly by my best employee, Audrey.)

The ultimate portrayal, however, is my closet.
But I will save that for another day, which will give you something to look forward to.

(My bakery daughter, Audrey, or as I call her, Aud.)

But, I make a mean breakfast, which I have to get started way sooner than
I care to think about.  So I better check out now, yo.

Today at Homestead

I am hoping that blogging again will prove to be more therapeutic than a trip to the Rocky Mountains, so to speak.  Because I gots to tell ya, this bakery gig is MEGA FUN, but very stressful and SO MUCH HARD WORK.  But, I love it, I do.  (Repeat to self as needed.)  So regardless of how many people do or do not read this, I don't care, I will just continue on, sparing any psychiatrist their own sanity having to listen to me. 

Did I tell you that Eli works for me? Yep, he does. 
And let me tell you, he is ONE HARD WORKER!
And look how tall he has gotten.

Our lunch special today was Chicken Marsala on Pasta.
Beautiful and rave reviews!

And our soup was Wild Rice Soup...and was GOOOOOD!

And now I am about to fall asleep because I've been up since 4AM.

And as with this end-of-a-long-day video, I am giddy and need to be put down.

Look at me, on a roll for three entire days!
I'm proud of myself.

Hodge Podge

Meet my team!  I have THE BEST employees ever. They make me laugh constantly and they laugh AT ME constantly (K-Man says that's because they are on my payroll, whatever.)

We bake THE MOST delicious things!
Every single day.

I have only gained a moderate 20 pounds, give or take. Whatever. #LovePounds

Isaiah hangs out there often.  And, well, is forever Isaiah.

Oh, and this is me after having picked up AND DRINKING a coffee cup thinking it was mine,
only to realize it was that of one of our regular old-man customers
Seriously, I did that. 

Brenden and me at a wedding over the summer! 
(I'm about 5 months pregnant according to this photo.)
(Now awaiting my little bundle of bread any day now!)

That's it for now, friends.  I need to get the 12,485 pictures off my phone and onto this site
so that you can be fully caught up with all my goings-on. 

Be a blessing to everyone you encounter, okie dokie?

Love ya,

I'm baaaaack!

Wowie!  Look who the cat dragged in.  It's me, your long lost friend Lori! SO much has happened since I last blogged, that I don't even know where to begin.  I'll give you a few bullet points:

*We sold our beloved homestead home of 20 years.  So sad, I can't even think about it.
*We bought a new, adorable house in our small, adorable town.  We just love it!
*I opened a bakery a year ago that is now a booming success.  I can't wrap my brain around it.  I am having such fun!!
*We are no longer homeschooling...but, my (not-so) littles are doing just fine and dandy in public school.  They love it and everyone loves them!!
*The four big kids are all on their own now and doing very well with their various schooling and careers. So proud of them!!

Well, that pretty much sums it up! 

I really miss blogging and it took me FOREVER to even figure out how to log onto the old blogging block.  I obviously need to change all my photos and everything else.  SO MUCH as changed. I'm rusty though, so it might take me a while to refigure everything out.

I really hope to make this my place to once again share the funny things that happen within my family...and also at the bakery.  Lots of behind the scene silliness goes on that you'll love!

Okay, same old Lori...I took my sleeping pill and now I'm getting loopy.  Alarm clock goes off at 4AM to go start the bread, cinnamon rolls, and other pastries! 

Thanks for sticking with me! 

If you're still here following along, I'd love to hear from you!

Pie design ideas!

Click HERE for the strawberry pie recipe!

It's blurry because I'm a horrible photographer, AND what you don't see here
is all my people standing with forks in-hand, hurrying me along. 
I literally can't focus under such pressure!!

I'm in the thick of research and planning my POTENTIAL bakery/cafe!
It's not a sealed deal yet...but, I am feeling like such a big
business girl these days!

I thought I'd share with you some of my design ideas I found on Pinterest...







Oh, I could go on and on and on!!

But, I've got cinnamon buns to get out of the oven.

Have a glorious Tuesday, friends.
