Sweet Plans for tuition

F12G1962 copyAnd so the BIG DAY came and I walked it in heels.
I’d dreamt of graduation, still it all felt surreal.

I thought 12th grade was tops, but it’s really the start of the hill.
I start college in days — did I mention it all feels surreal?

Sweeter days are ahead… or so I’ve heard them all say.
And I’ve been doing more than baking nowadays.

This Summer has found me to be a girl about play,
though tuition will be due and I’ve my part to pay.

I’m more focused on my studies, the ease of learning is a give and take.
To assist with my tuition remainders, I plan to be a sweetie and bake.

Everyone loves cookies, cupcakes, pies, cakes and the likes.
I’ll build a new reputation for ways to tastefully sugar spike.

Yes. I absolutely plan to continue producing my baking delights,
I’m the Cupcake Chique
and I’ll forget not to check in with  thee via #SweetWrites.

While I am away I still vow this to be true:
For every tasty recipe I come across, I’ll share it with you.

Sweet Conclusions – no illusions

situps2banishthegut_5152173_GIFSoup.comI really hope you’ve been good this year
because we’re back at the season thats so full of cheer,
and cookies, and cakes and pies and such:
hips, bellies and girthy butts.

I know I’m preaching to the choir,
so add exercise – as your “stay-fine fire”.

It’s okay to want to hike your skirt up a little high
if you are certain you aren’t sporting jiggly thighs.

Right? I know, I know… I’m preaching to the well tuned choir.
Don’t have a gym membership? Good old running will start the fire.

I’m divvying sweet advise FOR FREE! Take it as quick as you take a cookie.
Nevermind my age or what I weigh – weigh not my wisdom on status of rookie.

I may not have had 5 kids, or a marriage that I need to work at,
but I do have finals and papers full of binders and other areas of lack.

Let no excuse be the reason that we gain 5 or 10 pounds this season.
I need to know “we’re good to go” and that sweets are not the obese reason.

Now brush the crumbs from your mouth and get in plank formation,
I’m The CupCake Chique
with tons of baking to do this week,
I just wanted to clarify our sweet fitness relation.

We’re good right? Nothing wrong with sweet and tough lovin’.
Before you exit, be a gem and put 350 degrees on my oven.
