But I do bake cakes. This one is called the Chocolate Better Than Sex cake. As if that isn't good enough, it's got Shiny Chocolate Glaze on it (think chocolate glazed donuts).
I took to it a friend's house for her birthday tonight and people attacked it like they were jungle lions and it was prey trying to escape. If you like chocolate, this cake is to die for. If you want the recipe, leave your email in the comments and I'll send it to you, or go buy the world's best book -- The Cake.Mix.Doctor. This book was sent directly from heaven.
Now on to the other lovin' things...
I was so frenzied last week with the Commentathon that my finger slipped off the collective pulse of my regular bloggy friends. I felt like lots of stuff was going on (2WWs, BFNs, etc.) and while I had it all in my head when I prayed for everyone at night, I still wasn't real organized in my thinking. So I took a tour of my blog roll, and would like to ask everyone to send some love to these various places:
Changing Expectations - gearing up for DE IVF #2
Shelby - today is her birthday (!) and she's in that outrageously stressful window of time between retrieval and transfer
Somewhat Ordinary - in 2WW
Artblog - she just had a recent BFN from IUI, I'm so sorry!
H2H - currently pregnant (yay!), first ultrasound on Monday
Lara - gearing up for DE FET
Laura - in 2WW
Carlynn - in 2WW
Rachel - in 2WW
Mary Ellen - in 2WW
Tam - recent BFN from her 1st IVF. This one is particularly saddening because she and I were true cycle sisters, our retrievals and transfers were just one day apart. After my BFN, I was desperate for her cycle to work so I wouldn't lose hope in the whole damn process. My heart is breaking for her and Frank.
Please feel free to eat some (virtual) cake and visit some nice ladies who could use your support right now.
