Bedrest= discovering a new show

Don't panic..this "bedrest" is self-imposed. Today I had a lot of time on my hands. Ever since I got home from school yesterday, I have not felt good. Granted, I did a flash mob dance (you'll see our staff on Youtube someday, I'm sure:o), had 2 class parties, and stupidly lifted an uncooperative child off the floor. But still, I started feeling those old cramps that I felt months ago. I started to worry, had no appetite, and was in a terrible mood. This morning, I woke up and it was the first thing I felt. Ugh. So, I called the doctor, and the sweet nurse I always talk to was there for me. She said to definitely monitor for backache, decreased fetal movement, and pain increase. And she told me to drink a TON of water and lay down for the day. I can do that. Since talking to her at 10 am, I have been on the couch, only to get up every hour and drink a glass of water. It is working! And in the process, back to the title of this post...

The name of the show caught my eye. I have a "thing" for cupcakes. As in...that is the only requirement wherever I travel. I could miss seeing the major sites and it could rain the entire vacation, but I will find the city's best cupcakery. So, Cupcake Girls. First, it is about 2 powerful women (best friends) who have opened a chain of bakeries in Western Canada. They are very likable because they are not perfect at all, and they don't pretend to be. Right now, they are in "couples therapy". Even if you don't like cupcakes or think that is a stupid premise, the human interest part of the show is what has had me hooked for 4 hours. I have watched Lori go through IVF heartbreaks and triumphs, Heather's mom is honestly facing a cancer diagnosis, the managers went on a team-building camping trip, and the every day challenges of a small business are pretty interesting.

If you are looking for a 30 minute show to get hooked on, DVR Cupcake Girls on We! I'm thinking a trip to Bakery Gingham is in order this week. Baby needs a cupcake.
