Whoa it's already Tuesday.
Hope you all spent the long weekend well- and had a chance to get outside! It was cold & rainy here the whole weekend, but I saw on Instagram some of you had some nice sunny weather (jealous).
Here's what's been going on lately:
The company I work for recently celebrated it's 50th year in business, so naturally they threw a big old party. Here's them setting up in the atrium with hundreds of balloons (looks like UP, right??):
What kind of party did they throw, you ask? A CUPCAKE PARTY. Or rather, Cupcake Wars.
A bunch of employees submitted recipes- and over 60 across the company's 3 locations were allowed to make 50+ cupcakes to compete. I mean, you all know me well enough by now that you know I entered, right!?!
I threw my salted caramel chocolate cupcakes in the ring and ended up winning one of the 3 prizes! Woo hoo!
I'll be sharing the recipe for those on the blog tomorrow... but here's a sneak peek for ya. Hungry yet??
I took a little time this weekend to do some summer shopping, and hit the jackpot at Forever21. I tell ya, if you take the time to weed through the crap at that store, you really can find some good stuff!
I found this AWESOME light chambray shirt dress, geo/aztec tank, floral lightweight maxi, and turquoise necklace for a total of about $60. And that necklace- kind of spikethepunch-esque right? But only $7, so a tiny fraction of the price and you don't have to wait months on end to get one!
So while I like having plenty of alone time, after living with Michael for the last couple years..I've become a total wimp staying home alone for a long period of time. Yes, go ahead and make fun of me, it's fine. I'm 25 and a baby. Michael was gone for 5 days camping up north MN without any service...and with it being a holiday weekend no.one.was.in.town. Gah. I may or may not have double locked and barricaded the door with a chair #oopsfirehazard.
Luckily I'm dating one cool dude who knew I'd be bummed out being in town alone, and did a few things to make me feel better, including a whole lotta flowers and Pitch Perfect (yes I'm a nerd).
In addition- he left me notes ALL over the apartment.
Makeup bag? Note. Under the pillow? Note. Kitchen? Note. Coffee table? Note.
Went to grab a mug for tea the first morning and found this one:
He'a a good one, folks.
And on that happy note, I'll stop babbling.
How did you spend the long weekend?
What are you waiting for? Go grab that turquoise necklace!
*pssssst: find me on Instagram here!
