In Cupcake We Stand

When I bought my ticket to the uber awesome Hitched event at the Smogshoppe, I didn't know what to expect. This was my first actual wedding show, and I was clueless.

There was plenty of eyecandy, but the part I was most looking forward to were the Enjoy cupcakes that I'd read so much about! I had a blackberry syrah chocolate cupcake. Seriously, where have you been all my life? As my friends can attest to, I'm allergic (why me???) to red wine. I sort of faint when I consume it. But I can have it in the form of a cupcake!! Did I mention that I'm not a lover of cupcakes? Please don't kill me, but I'm not even that big of a cake fan. So a cupcake's got to have a lot to impress me. Enjoy Cupcake's heavenly cupcakes were moist, not too sweet, and that wine-soaked blackberry on top was just perfect. In the back of my mind, I was secretly hoping for a failure. I wasn't trying to be mean, but they're located in Los Olivos. In case you didn't know, that's sort of REALLY far away. I want another one now, but it's like a hundred some miles away. They will deliver them, but it's $100. A hundred buckaroos for cupcakes!! Yea, I don't have that many buckaroos for cupcakes, but you betcha we are taking a roadtrip the next chance we get!

Idaho Paradiso

Are we ever too old go to on a family vacation with their parents? I don't think so! Momma BusyButton and I flew from the big city into the little city of Twin Falls, ID to visit family. Though we didn't have a chance to go to Boise, which I hear is awesome for its creative art scene, we did get to soak in some sun and nature.

Here's my attempt at being artsy at Craters of the Moon State Park. This used to be home to some majorly active volcanoes. The weird thing was that the park guide kept citing its similarities to the islands of Hawaii and it featured photos of Hawaii. Uhhh...did you think your own state park wasn't good enough for the brochure??

Craters of the Moon has numerous caves you can climb down into. Some required headlamps and proper gear. I kept fearing bats would come out at us, but luckily there were none. Or, they were just good at hiding. Either way, please continue this way!

Growing up in L.A., you never see a public body of water that's not a questionable shade of green. I guess Idaho's got a thing or two to teach us big city folk that there's such a thing as crystal clear water. That, and having llamas in your backyard is totally normal. Anybody want to buy me a llama???

Oh Dear, Oh My, It's Happened!

I've been quiet lately, and though you're probably thinking, "What else is new, huh?" give me a chance! I can explain! Check out this little beauty right here...


Yes, she's all mine honey! The bf is now a fiance, and seriously I cannot wait to marry this man. =)
