Cupcakes & Chinese...

Thank you all for the sweet comments and Anniversary wishes!

Unfortunately, my sweetie is out of town this entire week on business. I understood that he had to be gone, but missed him just the same. I've been tired/overwhelmed, which always leads to an emotional-mama. I needed a pick-me-up. Joy was quick to come hang out and show me some love.

She brought me some homemade banana bread. She knows that as soon as I set my eyes on food - I forget all my worries. HA!



After Joy arrived, I decided that we needed to get out of the house, so we headed to a new cupcake place that just opened.



Here's me and my little cupcake outside the cupcake shoppe. :)



They had quite an assortment to choose from...



Joy and April chose classic vanilla w/vanilla frosting & vanilla w/chocolate frosting. April is Alex's little sis. She moved in with us over the weekend, so you will probably be seeing more of her around the 'ole blog. :)



We had a glass of organic milk to go with our cupcake. Skim of course.

Sidenote: I actually only ate a couple bites of my cupcake, so just incase my trainer is reading this...please don't be hard on me next week!!



Amelia was licking her lips, wishing she could have some too. A few more months, baby girl...just a few more months. :)



We ran to Target afterwards and then came back to the house. Upon arriving home, these were delivered from my sweetie! It was a nice surprise and made my day.



I talked Joy into staying for dinner. We ordered P.F's and it was delicious.



Joy left after dinner, so I got Amelia ready for bed and spent the rest of the evening watching my redbox movies. This was one of the movies that I watched. It was silly, but made me laugh!



I'm looking forward to the weekend. I get to see Alex and celebrate...just the two of us!

Love to all,

Too cute that Amelia's shirt even has a cupcake on it! :-) Sounds like a wonderful day even though your hubby wasn't around.
