Yesterday all I wanted was a cupcake. I don't know why, but nothing else would do besides a cupcake. I didn't want vanilla though, I wanted something different. Well, the shops I passed in the city didn't have what I wanted. So I decided to make some. Can you tell what kind they are?:

Yup, red velvet... actually the first time I ever had red velvet. But I added something special, peppermint snow. Mmm... so good. They I frosted them up with vanilla frosting and added some more peppermint snow on top. So so good:

Of course, you can't just make one cupcake... so I made two dozen. Which I don't need to eat! That's for sure. (Though I did have one last night... then one for breakfast this morning... then one for a mid-morning snack. Opps.) So my coworkers got a treat today. And I got my cupcake(s)... which means I'm a happy girl. :-)

In more food news, Trav is coming into the city today to have lunch with me! Yay! He took the day off because 1. he is bitter that his Philly area workplace didn't go for his request that he be allowed to wear his Pittsburgh gear today since it is game 7 of the Stanley cup finals! (they allow the whole company to wear Philly gear when our teams are in big games), and 2. because he always ends up with a bunch of days left over at the end of the year, so he might as well use some of them. So now he has off and he gets to dress for Pittsburgh as his little heart desires. I'm just excited for a great excuse to try a new restaurant in the city with my boy. I believe we're going to go to the Continental, which I've heard good things about.

On another note, I've decided that letter writing is a lost art and needs to be brought back. I actually have a few different cute notecards at home, and bought some beautiful ones from Barnes and Noble the other day, so this morning I broke out three of them and wrote notes to three people I love. Hopefully it will brighten their days a little... I know how I feel about receiving mail, so if they enjoy it half as much as I do, then I'll feel good for making them feel good.

And with that, I'm off to get some work done. Have a great weekend.

  1. Your cupcakes look delicious! I also think letter writing is a lost art form. I have tons and tons of pretty papers, stamps and seals just waiting to be used. I think it's so nice that you took the time to send a personal note to a few special people.


Leave me some love!
