I have a few minutes while taking my progesterone, so I thought I'd spend it with my girls!
I have a question for you. I don't think there is one good answer; your impressions will all help me. On Friday, I had an apt with DS. I told the Dr and his nurse about my catering service. THey were both super enthusiastic and I think I'll have an order before long. THe Dr told me about another mom he knows, who started a cupcake catering business a couple years ago. He showed me her website and told me she is now successful. So I told him right away that I wanted to contact her and offer her to join forces and help each other out because our products were different. I don't like competition and I avoid it whenever I can.
So I wrote her a friendly email. I took the time to check her menu and saw that the only cakes she advertised were very different than mine (I didn't see fondant anywhere, just colored icing, no tiers, etc.). So I offered her to remove cupcakes from my menu and advertise her business on my website and with my clients, and offered her to do the same with my desserts. She gave me a friendly reply, but with a twist. She said
I would gladly love to help you out but from what I see from you website, our work is similar. I make cakes, all kinds of cakes, from simple to wedding, from regular vanilla to Reine Elizabeth. Let me know how you feel I can help you out and I will see if we can work something out.
The thing is, I don't really know what to answer. If she really does what she says (despite what she shows on her website), she's my direct competitor. And I think she lives in my area. Her business is home-based, but my Dr told me he saw trucks with her brand name the other day. I no longer see how we could help each other out...??? Any ideas? If you're curious her web site is www.montrealcupcakes.com
So, how is that bum? Are the bumps a bit smaller and less painful now? Thanks for your kind words sweetie, I'm also very hpapy that we're cycling together and I HOPE we'll go through pregnancy together too! How cool would that be? THe triplets are doing fine, thanks. I'm still tired, and I hope it's only the beginning. No symptoms, some cramping when I went through some stress on Friday, but it went away. I had a wonderful Swedish massage yesterday (thanks to our insurance!!!!), and you can be sure I'll be back, she's amazing. Plus I have a new haircut that I'm IN LOVE WITH.
An icing junkie huh? LOL yeah, I thought I would take a pic of the cake once it's been partially cut, but I never remember. Thanks for your kind words about my website. Hey, the nausea is gone, that's great!
Yup, I had increased secretions when on estrogen. Goes with the increased appetite!
Totally agree on the bell thing. They should attach it to each embie. Or sent some kind of implantation alarm on our lining. BEEP BEEP BEEP INVASION WARNING!
Okay, gotta go back outside, it's a lovely sunny day and we're working on the yard. SO MUCH to do it's crazy.
PS people have started making orders, my oldest friend just told me he wants me to make his wedding cake at the end of June, and the nurse told me her son might order his cake from me... 175 guests! WOW YIPPEE!!!!
