Let Them Eat Cake

I've seen this done on a few blogs and have always wanted to try it and today was the perfect chance. My sister's birthday was today and my niece reminded me of this fun way to do cupcakes. All you have to do is:
1. make your cake mix
2. separate into different bowls and add food coloring of choice
3. take a spoonful of each color and put in your cupcake container
4. bake
5. add icing and enjoy

Now I know we are no Martha Stewart but I think they turned out pretty good plus they tasted yummy!!

This was right before we put them in the oven. I love the one at the bottom reminded me of Superman ice cream :)

After they came out of the oven. I think some of the cupcakes may have had too much batter...there were several times that I checked on them in the oven and I was just sure that they were going to overflow and end up everywhere.

Cupcake remains!!! Love reminds of flowers.

After we decorated them we noticed that we couldn't get the cupcake on the left to stand up strait. For the rest of the night it was known as "the drunk cupcake"...I said it was on patron tequila. love that song

The finished result!! :) :) :) So happy

Look for the day

I love the messy bun. It's perfect for when you don't have too much time or if you're having a bad hair day. Today my excuse was not having enough time to get ready this morning. It's so easy to do and is takes only but a minute or two to fix. I added a pretty headband to dress it up.

Concert Weekend

Not too long ago I had a pretty crazy weekend, 2 concerts: Friday night then Saturday night. I love live music and although it seemed as if Monday couldn't come any faster, my fast paced weekend was quite worth it. Besides I still had Sunday to recover. Sometimes too much of a good thing is a good thing :)

This was the only picture of Motley Crue that I could of the workers made me put my camera away :(

{I think it's a pretty cool photo though}

Anyway they completely rocked out and the opener for the night, Godsmack, really brought it. Lets just say the next morning my next was killing me. Gotta love that rock music <3

Saturday Night

George Strait was amazing that night...I had an amazing night. I felt no stress, no worries, just enjoying life at that moment. I couldn't have asked for a better time. George, you're the man.

Happy Weekend Everyone!! :)

Veronica gets it all

My sister showed this to me yesterday in the paper. Archie was just about the only comic I read bedsides Garfield. Anyway I always wondered who Archie liked more, Veronica or Betty? Betty was always the nice simple one while Veronica was the high maitenance rich girl who always got what she wanted and I guess when it comes to guys it's no exception. That's right Archie marries Veronica!! Some girls just get it all.

Bright lights

Although I was pretty much dragging this morning, last night or should I say early this morning was well worth it. We didn't see too many meteorites (I only counted 8...darn all those clouds) but any reason to hang out with family and talk and listen to good music when you should be sleeping is good enough for me. After awhile we decided to get on the roof of my sister's house. I have to say that being up there with a nice cold beer was really relaxing...especially when you can just lay down and look up at the stars all night. If it hadn't been for a few mosquitos....I probably could have fallen asleep on the roof. It was 3 something when we finally decided to go to bed or should I say take a nap (i had to get up at 6:45)!! Oh well, good times :)

True Blood

Me and boyfriend stayed up pretty late last night watching this show. I guess you could say we are getting addicted to it. We just bought season one on Sunday but didnt start watching it until Monday night. If it wouldn't be for work, I'm almost sure we would be done with it by now. It's that good!!

Relaxing at the Beach

I had a fun day at the beach earlier this week.  The boyfriend convinced me to be a little bad and spend the whole day relaxing at the beach.  We didn't leave until the sun went down.  I know I posted the other day how the beaches over here were not all that, but surprisingly it was much better than I remembered.  There were only seashells on the seaweed or dead jellyfish, I didn't feel anything squirming around on my legs, the waves were great, the water was a perfect temperature.  All in all, a really great day.

Thank you beach for such a beautiful day

Me and boyfriend made this starfish

old beach house

seashells!!! They were everywhere
