Life gets in the way sometimes.

Today we had a potluck at work to celebrate the end of another fiscal year & a co-worker's birthday. Every other time that's I've participated in a lunch like this, I was the girl who brought chips or drinks or something pre-made like a tray of veggies and dip. I'm trying to step more out of my comfort zone these days so I decided that for this particular event I would contribute a cake!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE to cook and do so all the time. My problem is that I'm super shy and baking something would obviously bring some attention to me that I don't necessarily want. I still went for it though.

The cake I made was very basic but since this Pot Luck was last minute I had to run out to the grocery store to purchase a cake mix, jell-o (name brand), cool whip and some strawberries. My mother was supposed to lend me a container that I could use to store and transport the cake... but then she could not find it! I had to go back out and spend some more money! This whole experience ended up costing me just under $30 but it was totally worth it. The cake turned out wonderfully and everyone loved it! And now I have requests to make it again for future lunches and I thankfully have the container to carry it around in. Win-win!

In other news today is pay day! I don't remember the last time I still had over $100 left in my account on pay day but today was such a day! As soon as my pay hit my automatic transfers went to work. I love that I finally got around to setting those up! The only thing I have left to do is call the bank and set up my RRSPs. I've given myself up until this weekend to get that done.


And do you plan on sharing that yummy recipe with us? Nice to see a new blog!

I will def post the recipe! It's so easy it's not even funny! I will be remaking the cake this weekend and I'll take some pics to make it more interesting :D

Thanks for coming by, I really enjoy your blog!
