I still haven’t finished spray painting the stuff I got from the thrift store. The sun came out for a while yesterday, so I should have done it then, but I chose to do laundry and sweep the mountain of crumbs off of my kitchen floor instead. I felt like such a good wife.
Why did I have so many crumbs everywhere? I’m not going to lie, I usually have a million crumbs on the floor… But it was especially bad because I made 180 cupcakes on Wednesday, and how did I keep my 3 year old and 1 year old occupied while I baked? I didn’t. They ran wild around the house all day and my little boy watched 2 movies (gasp!) Then after the kiddos ran wild all day, they got to have a cupcake themselves, which contributed to the crumbs. Here is what 180 cupcakes looks like. Yes, I burned the first batch. Don’t judge.
P.S. I am in LOVE with my buffet. And guess what? it only cost me a hundred buckaroos on KSL (it’s like a Utah Craigslist.)
I hand piped each and every cupcake. Hope those boy scouts appreciated it! ha!
It really wasn’t that hard. I just filled my piping bag, used tip 1M (wilton), and swirled the frosting onto the cupcakes. Looks really awesome, but it’s a trick cause it’s way easier than trying to frost them the old fashioned way.
On a much less happy note, today I had a root canal. Actually, it was part 2 of 3 in the root canal process. Yes, I want to crawl into bed and watch “You’ve got mail” with my new fluffy pillows, but that’s not really an option, so I’m eating a baked potato (yum) instead while my baby naps and my little boy watches Toy Story 3. Another movie? Oh my goodness, what kind of mother am I?
I don’t feel that bad, though, because they got to spend the morning at Grandma’s house, so I know they’ve had their mental stimulation for the day. I just want to say that my Mother in Law ROCKS!!! She is always willing to watch my kids whenever I need her to. You know she does a good job when you go to pick up your kids and my 3 year old begs me to leave again so he can stay at Grandma’s house longer. Yeah, I’m super lucky. And, she even sent me home with a warm loaf of wheat bread. Yum.
Have a good weekend, everyone. Rest assured I will be in my PJ’s all weekend long.
