Hopefully I haven’t lost all of my reader’s by now… I know it’s been 12 days since my last post, which is like 15 years in blogging time, but never fear, I am back. 🙂 So, what has kept be busy for so long? We’ll the day after my last post John and I headed to Lake Dardanelle to suprise my grandparents (That’s what the Cupcake Flavor Search was in regards to). Every year they head up to the Lake with several extended family members for a week long camping trip. It was a lot of fun! We got the chance to hang out with several cousins (?) that we’ve never really been around and they are all such fun people. John and I are hoping to be able to go back next year and stay longer than just the weekend.
(Please don’t look at my gross hair. I forgot to pack shampoo, so I had to use Joy dish soap on my hair, lol!)
So, what kind of cupcakes did I make? Well, I forgot to stop at the store on my way home to pick up some ingredients needed for the amazing recipes mentioned, so I kind of made my own version of strawberry cupcakes. These aren’t as pretty as the master CB‘s, but I think they are pretty still.
Last week was my birthday and John was so sweet. He woke up early and made me breakfast: sausage, biscuits, and eggs (my favorite). Then when I got home from work, I found this on the table:
I had printed off a pretzel recipe that I found on a blog and have been wanting to try them. He found it and decided to try making them. Apparently, “they are very easy and taste amazing out of the oven.” I just warmed mine up in the microwave for a couple minutes and they were delish.
Then my allergy problems hit. I have never ever had problems with allergies until this year. They are just awful! So, being the dr phobe that I am, I waited and waited and waited to go to the dr until Monday. Turns out I had a fever, major sinus/allergy problems, and 2 borderline ear infections, yuck. But thankfully I’m feeling better now, thanks for asking. 🙂
So, that’s been my life for the past 12 days, hopefully it won’t be 12 more before I have another update. 🙂
