Max’s 1st birthday BBQ is Saturday so today was all about doing cupcake trial runs! I made two kinds of chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting in the afternoon - went to class & took my statistics exam - came home (at 9:30pm) & made vanilla-lilikoi & vanilla-guava cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. All from scratch of course! I’m finally done & heading to bed, at nearly 1am. After giving myself a tummy ache from all the taste-testing (most of which was completely unnecessary, naturally), & “forcing” cupcakes into Casey & Leihua, the flavors for Saturday have been decided! One of the chocolate cupcakes, with chocolate frosting, & the vanilla-lilikoi with cream cheese frosting, with some alterations. Tomorrow morning I’ll do another run, making it more of a straight lilikoi cupcake..
I forgot how much I love baking. I’m definitely going to carve out time each week to bake more often.
I blew through all 5 seasons in under 3 weeks.. What am I going to do without my daily dose of Taylor Kitsch!??!
Heading over to IMDB to look up every movie, tv show, commercial, whatever he’s ever been in, ever, so I won’t have to be without him in my life. & just as a side note- I’m super bummed he didn’t end up with Lyla :(
1. Don’t try to read other people’s minds
2. Get up 30 minutes earlier so that you don’t rush/get a ticket while driving too fast/have to explain why you’re late/get fired
3. Get 8 hours of sleep per night so that you think more clearly
5. Start saving and investing every week, no matter how little you can spare
