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.
