Dear Bloggy Friends (again),
It has been 1 week since my last blog entry. (If this sounds like confession, it is). Please forgive me. Holy Smokes! 1 whole week? What the heck is up with that?
The truth is, I've been dealing with some, shall we say interesting situations, that have kept me a little distracted.
But I'm missing ya, and had to make some time to tell you all!
I hope you are all doing well, and will welcome me back (again), and forgive my blogging slackiness. Please?
I cannot BELIEVE you have never heard "This Cowboy's Hat" by Chris LeDoux. That is like, a country classic. My brother used to listen to it over, and over, and OVER!
Since it was your result for "which country song are you?", I have generously posted the song below so that you may listen!
Pretty good, eh? I mean it's OLD, but still.
Plus...Chris Ledoux? Ca-UTE!
Hope you enjoyed!
Your friend for life,
I am such a poor bloggy friend. I am so sorry I haven't linked up to the Show Me The Progress party! I was really looking forward to it! I had my girls' room all but ready! I feel like such a loser.
It looks like you got a good turnout - do you think you will do it again? I hope so. Sorry for being a slacker.
Your ever faithful, if not very diligent friend,
For more Dear Someone's head over to Shortmama's!
I wanted to quickly share a fun, simple way to dress up your cupcakes. Now I KNOW that this isn't new or revolutionary...but I thought I'd show you my take on it.
My mom needed some cupcakes to take to a Relief Society activity last night, and asked me to help her out. I told her I knew just the thing to make them super cute, but not spend forever doing some eloborate decorating. Let me apologize in advance for the super crappy pictures. I couldn't find my camera, and had to use the cell phone.
I started off puting my handy, dandy Cricut (not Cry-cut MiMi), cutter to work. I cut some cute flowers in different colors and styles. I wanted 12 flowers, so I cut 24, and then pasted them back to back with a toothpick in the middle so they would be double sided. I've heard flat toothpicks work best, but Walmart only had round, and they still worked.
I made the flower centers contrasting colors, and matched the cupcake frosting to the centers.
Then, inspired by Amanda's cupcake icing tip, and armed with some cute flower sprinkles, I frosted the cupcakes, and inserted one of my flower picks into the center of each one. I think they look pretty cute...how 'bout you?
I hope you are all having a wonderful week! It's almost Friday...Yay!
