There's nothing like a Sonic Cherry Limeade...

But these yummy cupcakes come close! I got this recipe from a site I found called Annie's Eats. I was really excited to make them. These are Annies: And these are mine!
Well, mine aren't as professional looking but I bet they tasted better:). So how did I solve my dilema of wanting to eat all of them? I took the whole batch (minus the 2 that snuck into my mouth) to Carrabbas for Jesse and his pals. I dropped them off and text him as soon as I got home and he said they were gone in 5 seconds. I told you they were good! Be sure to check out the recipe HeRe. This girl's website rocks and I want to make everything she makes.

I wanted to die

When I saw these. They are so so so cute! I'm planning on making them... maybe this weekend. We'll see. The problem is there is when I make things, there is way too much for just Jesse and myself. So I'm left with the dilemma. I have 2 choices- either gorge and eat all of them myself (regretting it later, but loving it when I'm shoving all the frosting and lemonade and strawberry goodness in my face) or take them to a neighbor... I bet you can guess which one I usually chose. And that is why I have a love/hate relationship with cooking and baking.

Hello Kitty

Believe it or not, there is a kitty out there cuter than ours. It's this one. I have always loved Hello Kitty.

MAC cosmetics has teamed up with Hello Kitty and it's the cutest line of make up ever. Just thought you should know.

No News is Good News

There hasn't been too much going on in our lives the past couple of weeks, but here's a few things I've been thinking about.

  • I am completely, 100% ready for spring. I'm sick of wearing longsleeve shirts under short sleeved shirts under long sleeve shirts. No more layering! I love that Utah has 4 distinct seasons, I just wish this particular season didn't last so long.
  • Will I ever finish Harry Potter? I don't know. Instead of reading I just play Mario on my DS- I'm a gameboy junkie.
  • Our kitten is so cute still- what's not cute is the scratches he has put all over my hands and feet. He's obsessed with fingers and toes so he's just playing with them, but his little claws leave their marks. I feel bad getting him declawed because there is so much he does with his claws- I would feel like we had cut off his fingers.
  • My sister has talked me into a marathon in June. I thought I would do one last year, but that didn't happen. We'll see how my training goes this time around.
  • I started Piano Lessons last week from Jesse's G-ma! I took them when I was a tot for 5 years, didn't practice ever and so I have nothing to show for it. This time will def be different.
  • Fresca is my drink of choice now. Someday I'll be off soda completely, but atleast this doesn't have caffeine in it!
  • Jesse won free filet dinners from Carrabbas, so last Saturday after our cute little cousin's b-day party, we claimed our prize. It was for sure THE best steak I have had in my entire life. So so so tender. It was perfect. Need a good steak? Get the filet marsala at Carrabbas, it was seriously amazing. I've been thinking about it ever since.
