Thursday, January 31, 2013

I love a fun link up and Natalie over at 23Seventeen (who is a sponsor too!) Has a fun one! She does Coffee talk every Thursday. So I thought I would join in too! You should too :)

1. When eating a taco, do you turn your head or do you turn the taco???
Is it weird that I turn my head? Because that's what I do :)

2. Chocolate chip cookies or oreos?? 
Yummy Gooey chocolate chip cookies!

3. What's the craziest thing you've ever been asked to do and DID?
I've done lots of crazy things! The craziest thing was live in Alaska for a winter probably. It was my Mom's idea...I didn't stay very long.


4. Never have I ever___seen a real unicorn, that makes me sad___.

5. Would you rather be broke and happy or rich and sad?
To be honest my bills make me really sad, and if I was rich I could have all the chocolate, cupcakes and cute little kittens...so rich and sad...haha!

Lost For Words....

Okay, so there are some days I'm lost for words, and I depend on the funny quotes and pictures that I find on Pinterest to get me through my thoughts. My week has been so crazy busy, that I think at one point I almost lost my mind! Don't worry, I'm fine. My mind never gets too far away from me. Aren't these quotes too funny?! I love that picture of Will Farrell! He is sooooo awesome! I think just for fun I'm going to do a picture like that. I know this is totally random....but not really :)

I hope you all have had a great week so far!

I think these cupcakes are so stinkin cute! I also cheated a little, there are cookies in this mix. I saw the recipe for them, and had to share them, especially because they are no bake. Any mom out there would appreciate that! I also didn't realize that there are reusable cupcake papers (not paper, I think it's silicon) shaped like teacups...sooooo cute!

This is going to be short and sweet (like a cupcake!) I have some cleaning up to do after my son's party and I have homework to catch up on that's due this Wednesday...and I work today! I hope you all have had a great weekend....xoxo!

Happy Birthday!

Saturday, January 26, 2013







I've been a little busy the last few days with work and my son's birthday. I can't believe my baby is 13! Time flies really fast, no matter how bad you don't want them to grow up. His 3rd party is tonight. He had one in his class, family party on his actual birthday, and a party with his friends tonight. Happy Birthday honey! I love you!

Snowy Beach

Wednesday, January 23, 2013








Sometimes I think I'm nuts when I wake up in the morning, and it's freezing outside, and I'm like: "Let's go to the beach!" I admire my wife for supporting me in all my crazy ideas. I've never seen snow on a beach before, so when we finally got snow here on the Jersey Shore, I was ready to go! It's so beautiful to look at! It had a strange feeling under my feet. Not the normal crunch that snow has, it was softer. I also feel that some of the prettier pictures are best taken when temperatures are unbearable for most people. I really love that I was able to experience this!

1000 Pictures

Monday, January 21, 2013

My Instagram Obsession
My favorite nature pictures
The self portrait. Full body and close up.
The fur babies
 
and the the self portrait/ outfit collages..

I hit another milestone, and this time I'm blogging about it! I totally missed out on my blogs anniversary and on my Instagram, but last night I hit 1000 pictures! That's a lot of pictures! I actually went through to the very beginning to see all the pictures I've taken, and I can't believe how much my kids have changed! I also noticed that most of my pictures are very random...no surprise there! I take pictures of nature, me, my shoes, cupcakes, moths/butterflies, my animals, my kids and life in general. I thought that maybe I would try to have more of a theme for my pictures going forward. Maybe use the same filter or frame, but I'm not sure that's me, so I'm just going to keep all my options open :) I love taking landscape and nature photos the most.  Do you have a certain type of theme you like to shoot?

Also, I'm the featured blogger over at The Stichin Mommy...thanks Amy!
Check out her Monday Blog link up..



Have a great day!

Cupcake Sunday - Pretty In Pink

With both my children having birthdays very soon, I thought it would be a good idea to start getting ideas for cupcakes. My son's birthday is this week on Wednesday, and I'm really excited, but sad at the time. My baby is going to be a teenager! I still can't believe how fast time flies! Anywho, he requested me to make those cupcakes that look like little hamburgers, and he also wants pizza and wings for his birthday dinner. Can you say "man food" ? For a boy who has grown up around nothing but women, he is your typical soon-to-be-man.

So as I was wondering around the wonderful land of cupcakes (on the internet) the pink ones kept catching my eye. So here they are, and they are so cute! I'm pretty sure they are all chocolate with pink or hints of pink on them. Unfortunately some of them didn't have the right sources linked to them originally, so I'm not sure what they are made of; yet they are all beautiful works of edible art. My favorite are the last ones. I'm a huge fan of simplicity. I also love when I see powdered sugar sprinkled on something, it just adds that special classic flare.

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! I have to plans to go to the library, and get all my son's birthday party details squared away. He is having 2 parties, so there is a lot of planning to do!
