What do I do when I’m not baking? Balancing the life of a stay-at-home mom and young entrepreneur can be quite challenging! But part of the fun in all of this is sharing my life with YOU! It is my hope through sharing these things that I can serve as an inspiration to those around me. That my readers can relate to my story, find hope in the busy life we all find ourselves caught up in, and see a reflection of the one who gives me MY inspiration… Christ!

Weddings and Smash Cakes and Komae, Oh My!

By |September 21st, 2015|

Where has Amy been?  Is she still baking?  Is La Hoot still a thing?

Absolutely, it is, my friends!  I have been a little quiet on the social media front, but I assure you, it’s for two good reasons.  Let me tell you!

First off… La Hoot is busy!  We’ve had 1 or 2 weddings booked […]

Through All of It

By |May 27th, 2015|

This is La Hoot’s busiest week perhaps to date.  Between graduation parties and a wedding, I’m slammed and working nearly a traditional 40 hour work week.  Blessed?  Yes!  Overwhelmed?  Sometimes!  But right now, I’m slowing down to focus on something of even greater importance than cake pops.  Hard to believe, right?

But really…

For those of […]

Jamberry and the Baker’s Life – True Love!

By |March 19th, 2015|

Based on the content of the blogs you read here (or quite honestly, the lack of blogging that happens time-to-time), it’s safe to assume I’m a pretty busy person.  Taking honesty one step further, I’m often times TOO busy and I struggle to keep my head above water.  But… I love it.  If I didn’t love […]

No Coffee!? Say It Ain’t So!

Coffee – Vacation in a Cup

How true is that?  Especially if you’re a mom.  As moms, we often live life at the end of our rope.  We give every part of ourselves to our husbands, kids, family, and friends.  We give, give, give and sometimes have very little sanity left for ourselves.  Its hard. […]

I’m not Wonder Woman

By |December 19th, 2014|

People often ask me how I “do it all.”  Last week, people inquired about how I could possibly make 1000 cake pops in a week and still come out alive while parenting two young boys.  Well… I’m here to tell you I’m not wonder woman.  I’ve just got the best business partner in town…

Wedding Desserts for a Beach Celebration

By |September 17th, 2014|

Earlier this summer we had the pleasure of welcoming a new sister-in-law into our family.  Andrew’s brother would be getting married on the beach to the love of his life, and new found best friend of ours, Nikki!  Nikki has been around the family for quite some time and while she has much love […]

Take Time to Rest

By |September 4th, 2014|

This can be a busy life, am I right?  And a lot of the time, those things that make our life busy are all good things.  Things we don’t necessarily want to cut out.  Things we don’t necessarily want to say no to.  Our marriage, our kids, our friends, serving opportunities, managing a household, […]

Quality Time in the Eyes of my Four Year Old

By |August 2nd, 2014|

My four year old, Nathan, is very unique.  He LOVES puzzles.  Not just loves them, but has an unreal knack for them.  Seriously, he does 500 piece puzzles, by himself, in a day.  Granted, it takes him a few days when he tries it for the first time, but by the time he takes […]
