More posts coming soon! Pinky-swear!

I promise there are new posts coming soon, I've been baking - I'm ready to share some great recipes with you.  But there's a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie on tonight, my lovely man is out working, so I thought I'd watch that tear-jerker (and you know it will be) and cry my eyeballs out.  Tomorrow:  stock up on Kleenex!

What to post, where to begin, and should I use emoticons or not?!?

When I started thinking about blogging, my obsessive need to research kicked in.  What theme would I follow?  Would I even have a theme?  Or would I have a typical Mommy-blog?  I read so many blogs, some were great and I follow them all the time, but some I've never visited again. 

Well, since I'm a Stay-at-Home-Mom, I didn't want my blog to be only about being a Mom, it's who I am, but not all I am.  I love to bake, cook, travel; I love Star Wars, coffee, Mojitos and all things Disney.  I watch too much TV, and I probably don't eat enough fibre.  And I do all of the above with my family.  Except the coffee & Mojitos - that stuff's not for kids!

I have two kids, a boy aged 8 and a girl aged 61/2.  I haven't decided if I'm going to use real names and faces yet, so for now let's call them "The Padawan" and "The Princess".  They also have a Dad, and I'll call him "Fred".  My name is Stephanie, for real. 

So I'll be posting how-to's, recipes, reviews and random girl-geek stuff. 

Oh, and yes I do love red velvet cake, cupcakes and (hopefully) cheesecake.  Though I didn't grow up with such deliciousness - my first encounter with red velvet was "Steel Magnolias", the movie.  You know the scene - the wedding with the Armadillo groom's cake?  Where Shirley Maclaine hacks the rear-end of the cake off and dumps it on a plate?  Yup, that set me on a path to red velvet love . . .  And has led me here to Red Velvet Momma.
