You know you're addicted when you're sitting in the bathtub at 6am with your family of 4 during tornado warnings and a 100+ mph wind shear and you wonder if there's any more posts on the topic you were watching yesterday. Good thing I have a smart phone, right?

Don't worry, I waited to check until the threat had passed. wanted both my hands holding into my squirmy 6 month old girl! Stay safe everyone!

This is hilarious!! I have to admit that I've taken my Mac into the bathroom with me several times (it's the only place I get peace and quite from my kids) to check out the threads on CC!

You get peace and quiet in the bathroom? Lucky!!!!!

My husband just shakes his head when I start a conversation with "This lady on my cake board....."

I was looking at the scroll work on my bathroom towel holder thinking..."hmmmm..that's some pretty scrollwork I could use on a cake". There is no room safe in my house!!

Cool topic!! You know you are addicted when you are in the grocery store checking to see if there are any new patterns on the rolls of paper towel. You know you are additcted when you are in the home improvement store checking out all the gizmos to see what kind of imprint it would make on fondant.

Everything I look at is through "cake lenses". My kids (in their 20s) are tired of me showing them cakes pictures, cake ideas, baking gadgets, etc. If I miss a day I CC I feel like I'm in withdrawal!!

And you might just be a little bid addicted, when you've got facebook and cc up in two tabs watching the comments on both!

I get ya on the facebook thing. I actually posted a status as we were getting to the tub! Mostly because i wanted all our local friends to know about the warnings, but partly because it is so addicting!

Too funny! I've been here less than a month and I check this site before my email every morning!

Like most of you, I'm sure, I have two addictions: to this site and to decorating itself. My hands start to feel itchy if I don't have them in fondant for a few days. I've been away from home a lot this year with one thing and another, so thank goodness for the CC fix I can get every day! I'd be having the DT's without it!

Haha I'm reading this while holing my Mac in one hand, typing with the other with my baby on my lap bc he refuses to take his nap in his crib today.
