Did you know that March 3rd is the anniversary of The Busy Coconut? I know, can you believe it’s been one year? I thought that I needed to make something to celebrate. Lately, I’ve been seeing Neopolitan images, so I took that as a sign I needed to make Neopolitan cupcakes. Because I was dealing with 3 different boxes of cake mix, I ended up with about 75 cupcakes.
I can’t really tell you where they all went . . . except for maybe 2. Ok, 3. I know where 3 of the cupcakes went. Whether or not I will tell you, that’s a different story.
This website has been really fun so far, and I am hoping that you’re all enjoying the ride as well. I’ve delved into cooking even more and have even experimented with my own recipes. So far, no one in my home has died. I figure I’m on a roll with this cooking thing.
I have slowed a bit in recipe posts, only because I have “technical difficulties” that like to climb on the table.
Doing TBC has made me want to grow in other areas as well. I’ve tried real hard to be a little more creative on my own with my primary music presentations and share them with you in a timely manner. I’m still working on that part.
Photography is an area I’ve have never been interested in until starting this website. Food photography has been my favorite so far. There’s something I would have never imagined myself saying. I didn’t even know that existed until a year ago. Thank you all for your compliments on my photos. I’m have much more things to learn still, but I’m having fun with it.
I’m also having fun showing you non-Hawaii residents what life is like here, the good, the different, and the beautiful.
Then there’s the never ending battle with the weight. I’m still going, but promise not to bombard you with my weekly anxiety issues with the scale. It’s gonna be a long journey, so I’ll give updates now and again. As for the running thing, I’m still working on that three miles. Consistency with a 1 year old and part-time job is hard to maintain, but I’m not going to give up.
One of the more fun parts about doing TBC is all the social media stuff. Fun! Fun! Fun! Can I just say, Twitter opens up a whole new world of micro-blogging and networking. I’m no pro, and would not even pronounce myself to be a Twitter Ninja (there really is such a thing), but I’m learning. Then there’s FaceBook, and don’t even get me started with Pinterest.
I would like to thank all my readers and followers of this blog for all the love you’ve shown The Busy Coconut.
I love hearing your reaction to a post, or your opinion about an idea I’ve shared, or success with something you found here on this blog. Reading your comments is just fun for me. Thanks for sticking around for this rookie year and interacting and sharing with me.
In honor of The Busy Coconut’s first anniversary, I was going to set up a table at the local park and give out 366 cupcakes. A couple of people, who will remain nameless said that that idea was too crazy. True story. So I thought maybe a contest giveaway would be a little less crazy, but more fun. So tune in on Wednesday for the contest giveaway. I won’t promise that the prize will be huge, but it will be something fun.
