When Life Gives You Lemons, Eat Cupcakes!
Forget the lemons and the lemonade. Rather, stuff yourself with cupcakes!
So I didn’t ingest these cupcakes this morning, but I thought I needed a lighter, “fluffier” post after yesterday’s news. (And I plan on finding a cupcake to ingest today as a coping mechanism.) But before you skim down and read further, PLEASE GET THIS:
WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR YOU!
Your sincere words of encouragement, prayers, advice, phone calls and emails have been medicinal. I haven’t been able to respond to each of you, but please know that we are overwhelmed by your kind-heartedness. We would ask that you continue to pray for us in the days and weeks ahead, and also be praying for those who are truly struggling in this economy. There are some people in some really really tough situations, and we are counting our blessings even through this inconvenience.
And now for your daily dose of sugar:
Cupcake Crawl –
Pronunciation: ˈkəp-ˌkāk ˈkrȯll
1:Founded in 2009 by The Queen of Free as an activity to socialize with local Indiana bloggers and devour an enormous amount of sugar in a ridiculously short amount of time;
2: An annual sampling of Greater Indianapolis’ Finest Cupcake Shops.
3: Sprinkles, Icing, Cakes, and Cuteness
The Flying Cupcake scored huge points for atmosphere and taste. I had the Red Velvet Elvis. Ah-mazing!
Here’s the display at Holy Cow Cupcakes where I picked up “The Alex”, a butter cake stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough and topped with fudge frosting, for my the father of my children. I mean he did offer to watch them, while I stuffed my face with frosting. It was the least I could do!
Our Final sugar buzz came from The Icing Co. She brought a tray full of samplings, and OH MY! My favorite of the day was her “Classy Carrot”.
Needless to say, I was ready for a SALAD for dinner!
If you have any cupcake shops in your area, I highly recommend doing a Cupcake Crawl. It’s a great Girls Day Out and it’s great for testing out your blood sugar capacity.
