highlights of the weekend

no, these aren't in order. they're just numbered. because I like lists.

1. making the perfect cupcakes.
yes, I know, I know. I feel like such a hipster wannabe blogging about cupcakes.. argh. :smacks forehead: just pretend it didn't happen, okay? I'm just too proud of them not to brag. you didn't see this here...
I made lemon-blackberry and chocolate almond. soooo yummy. (if I do say so myself.) plus the lemon icing turned out the perfect shade of yellow. I can see why the hipsters are so obsessed. I mean, one half of me is saying, come on, they're just pretty, iced muffins... while the other half protests loudly. they're just so much fun to make. next time I'm using ALL of the different cake decorating tips for the frosting...

2. my adorable nephew.
this is the new favorite game. taking all the stuffed animals off my bed (yes... those are... all mine... *cough*), arranging them on the floor, and then, taking turns with each, lying on top of them. what a cutie.

3. making a list of 100 things to do before I die.

4. finding two cute dresses at the thrift store for $10 (score)

5. Hem
love this band. do yourself a favor and go listen to half acre.

6. editing this picture.

album I'm listening to:
Rabbit Songs by Hem. of course.

"forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet, and the wind longs to play in your hair."

  5. oh my gosh! i just stumbled upon your blog, and i've got to say it's one of my new favorites! i love everything from your layout, to your style of writing, to your header, to your description! 1 cor. 13:4 is my favorite verse, by the way :) i'm definitely following! :)

  6. Thanks Jodie and Lucy! that's so sweet and means a whole lot to me :]

    @marci--yes! I realized I had had them on my computer for a few months without even listening to them! that's the bad thing about adding loads of music at a time to itunes.
    and picnik - the tint effect. Just do it each color at a time and voila, instant rainbow! :D

  7. I love how you edited that picture! I am now going to go try it. :)
