Lucky me!

Holy flipping cow... life seems to just be cruising on by and my free time is NON existent!  I feel like I need about 5 more hours in my day just to accomplish the things I WANT to do, not the things I have to do.  Know what I mean?  Its been pretty crazy around here.  I was asked to start working more hours so I am basically working full time now.  It's good and bad.  Not bad, I guess its just been hard.  My house is always a mess (for my liking) and the gym and I have been having a hard time getting together.  BUT... bright side is that I enjoy my job and the people I work with.  Well, I enjoy it most days.  Today was one of those days.  I got hung up on a few times and yelled at a few times  Sheesh... it must have been a full moon last night.  Don't shoot the messenger people!!!!!  Lucky me!!!

In other news.... we had a pretty fun weekend.  We went to my sisters house for Sunday dinner, and I offered to bring a dessert and started doing some research on St. Patrick's Day desserts.  I fell in love with these adorable cupcakes the second I saw them so we went for it.  I got the recipe here.

I started with a cake mix (white) and prepared it as you normally would.  I then divided it into 4 bowls and added food coloring, I used the neon colors because I am cool like that!

We put it in each muffin cup in spoon fulls, alternating colors so it looked like this.  

Then we baked them... for about 20 minutes
And they looked like this!

I made some green frosting in the meantime, let them cool for about an hour.
I used the Airhead Extremes candy and a rolo and how cute are these?

One of my favorite things about going to my sisters house is because I get to see my two great nieces.  They are SO much fun.  I honestly LOVE being a great Aunt.  It is so much more fun (I just wrote funner... is that even a word?) than being just an Aunt.  I guess that is because I became an Aunt at age 5, so I spent more time playing with them as I would a little brother or sister but being able to enjoy them as little ones.... is heaven.  Plus, I am their favorite.  Here's proof!


  1. Gotta love the jerks who call, right? I am glad you like it here, even though everyone is really weird! Including me. Those cupcakes are RAD.

  2. Look at you, Miss Fancy Pants! Those cupcakes look fantastic! I bet everyone loved diving into those fun colors!
