Where in the World is Wanna Be Baker? Day 2...

(Sung to the tune of Where in the World is Carmen San Diego)
See the hole in the Grand Canyon; make yet another wrong turn,
From the red rocks to Cameron they’ll be taking photos
Well they never thought they’d be on an adventure like this one,
Where in the world is Wanna Be Baker?
(That was my last attempt at creativity, I promise!)

What a day! We started out the morning in Phoenix then drove north.

This was our first stop:

What a gorgeous place! The red rocks were so cool to look at! We only stopped for a few minutes before heading through this (awful) windy road. We stopped at a pull off and got some cool pictures of a canyon...

From there we went to the Grand Canyon…

It’s a giant hole in dirt…but the view was so cool! From there we drove to the four corners. I have ALWAYS wanted to go there (I know…I’m a dork, but...they were closed! We got SOOO close, so I am counting it as visiting the place.

We finished the day by driving up to Durango, CO for a grand total of 10 hours driving time!

Where in the World is Wanna Be Baker? Day 1...

(Sung to the tune of Where in the World is Carmen San Diego)
Well she sneaks around the world from SD to Arizona
She’s an impatient passenger from Yuma down to Pheonix
She’ll take you for a ride on a side road to Sedona
Tell me where in the world is Wanna Be Baker?
(End failed attempt at cleverness)

Where in the world is Wanna Be Baker?
Today we left San Diego and drove to Phoenix.

This is what we left!!

It was an easy day of driving and not too exciting. We did stop at the Museum of History in Granite and the Center of the World Plaza in Felicity, California, though. That was more of a joke than anything, but hey…now I can say that I’ve been there (though I’m not sure how many people would admit that). Then we hung out with a good friend for the evening.

I would like to mention that I only slept for an hour of the trip yesterday!! I have to mention this because I may possibly be the worst road trip companion on the planet! I could fall asleep just driving around the block, so only sleeping for an hour is pretty darn good if you ask me!

Why are we doing this, you ask? Why not? We have to drive to our new home so why not make a trip out of it. We are young and when will we ever be able to do this again? We are seeing some amazing sights and visiting our friends and family along the way.

PS...This was supposed to post yesterday, but I had technology issues.

I think I have lost my mind...

I think I have officially gone crazy...

Since we are relocating half way across the country we decided to make a road trip out of our move. BUT, unlike most sane and normal people, we are not just going to drive to our new location. We have decided to take road trip ALL the way across the country. We will be covering 17 states, 2 countries, 4800 miles, and 80 hours of driving!!


We are mostly seeing family along the way, but we are stopping to see some awesome friends too!

We are driving from Southern California to Michigan and then through Canada, back down the East Coast to Virgina and then across to Indiana! Anyone know of any fun places to stop?

If I haven't lost my mind already...I'm going to on this trip! Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted!

Hello Blogging World

I think I am ready to come out of my blogging closet...

I have been writing in this blog for over seven months (even though I only have about a dozen posts) and only one person even knows it exists. I don't have anything that interesting to say, and I usually just talk about baking, but it's a blog nonetheless and I have decided to share it with the world.

Don't expect to get any super personal details or intimate information, because that's just not my style. I keep my personal stuff to myself most of the time. Though, I am hoping that maybe this blog will help me to share some things instead of keeping everything to myself.

Go easy on me...I am new to this whole blogging thing, so it will take me a while to figure everything out. AND...I am definitely not the most technologically savvy person out there (that's why I a bake). :)

So, here it very first published blog post. :)

And I will leave you with a few pictures of the cupcakes I did for a birthday party.

The party was for two sisters. These are their special birthday cupcakes

And these are what their friends had.
