“Madeline! I bought cupcakes for a snack!”
Yay! I know she was secretly thinking I’m the coolest mom ever. How could she not?
“The vanilla one in the front is for Nick, ok?”
“And that chocolate one is mine, ok?”
“But Mommy, which one is mine?”
“This one is! This Peanut Butter & Jelly one. Doesn’t it look yummy?”
After she dropped the last little piece of hers on the floor, she tried to steal Nick’s before he came home from school, but I wouldn’t let her. There would be pictures of him eating his, except he ate it so darn fast I didn’t have time to grab the camera.
Cupcakes are not exactly clean eating, are they? But every once in awhile, you need to indulge. And I did today. And then hit the gym tonight. And have gym time scheduled through next week. So I’m good.
These are stuffed cupcakes. They’re from one of my favorite cupcake shops. About thirty minutes away. The only problem? The word on the street today was that one of the local shops in town now CARRIES them. Starting today. I went down at lunch time. You know, to investigate. This is not going to be very good. Having them so close. They don’t taste like any other cupcake you’ve ever eaten. Amazingly good. So freakin’ good. And now I’m going to try and forget that I could seriously walk to the place to buy them. You know, if I wanted to.
After taking my breakfast and morning snacks to work every day in a plastic grocery bag, I decided I would opt for a slightly more stylish approach, and something decidedly less vagabond. Would love this bag even more if it was slightly bigger, but for now, I just love it period.
