    I got my acceptance letter today for the local college I applied to! Needless to say, I'm extremely happy about this.

    I'll be getting all my duckies in a row. Especially my financial aid, cause I can't afford to pay out of pocket for school.

    I'll be starting the Spring term in January.

    Next time I upload photos, I'll be proudly wearing my Chef's uniform!
    In a couple years time, I'll be Pastry Chef Mittimer! Hopefully within the next five years I'll be able to open my own bakery, that everyone will be invited to check out!

    *Does a happy dance*

    Aw, if only.
    Ace of Cakes has actually stopped airing :(

    I'm a religious watcher of all shows dealing with pastry arts and cake making so I know when my shows stop lol

    Thanks though!! ^_^

    It means that regardless, I'll be staying put. We still haven't gotten a definite answer on DC and at this point, my Husband doesn't want to take me away from schooling so we're going to try to stay in Florida together. If he does get a job outside the state, he understands that for my educations sake, I'll be staying here until I'm done with my degree.

    If you knew how much I baked now, you'd wonder why I'm the weight I am.

    I bake at least every other day, sometimes once a day. I don't eat everything I bake. I'm a large girl, but not 100lbs over weight lol

    Don't worry, I know with my kidney disease I can't put too much weight on, I dont' want them to fail on me faster.

    Oh! How I adore Alexandra Guarneschelli.

    My friend went to a culinary school. He loves it! He works for a cruise line and he's 4 spots away from (whatever they call a head chef).

    I have a respect for chefs, cooks, etc. There is QUITE a bit av chemistry that goes into chef'ing.

    Transferring should not be a problem.

    Thanks EVERYONE!

    I've been plastered with a smile on my face for the last couple days.

    @HardRocker, it's not the transferring credits that's the issue, it's the paying TWICE as much for schooling out of state as it would be in Florida.

    @Nyxx, yep-you're watching re-runs :p

    @RideNaked- Oh hell yeah! I've already made a naughty cake or two. lol

    Again, thanks everyone. :)
