Whomp Whomp.

It’s been pretty hard listening to all that Boston Bombing news but what’s worse is having to read point of views of your friends that live there on social media. Thankfully, they are out of harms way now.

Crawfish Boil

… went pretty well. We literally got crawfish delivered to Bossman’s house from New Orleans. Many were the size of my palm. Crazy, huh?

And the one that cooked it for us was a real New Orlean-er? That’s a word, right? Well, it was deliciously Cajun. Mmmm those sausages and potatoes were bombdiggity. Not too much for the corn. I wasn’t able to get each kernel by itself therefore they were not good. But in all he did gooooooood.

I made cupcakes … of course. This was before assembling them. My favorite part was making the little chocolate decorations (right) that would go on top of the frosting.

I did everyone’s first initial so they could all have their own personalized cupcake. They loved it!

Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes with Cookie Dough Frosting.

I was actually very disappointed in my cupcake. It wasn’t up to my liking. But surprisingly everyone else loved it. I guess sweet really isn’t my thing … and you rate yourself more when you make everything from scratch.

Let’s just say, Cookie Dough Frosting is a big hit. Finger lickin’ good. Seriously … a lot of them were licking their fingers.

Walk With Me

Amanda invited me to walk with her and her team to help with cerebral palsy … so I joined, raised $120, and recruited my friends.

Mallory & Samantha of course. I have no other friends. Thanks for coming out and joining me guys. I know waking up at 6am in the morning is painful for a weekend.

We made our 3 1/2 laps around the Houston Zoo. When we finished we went to the after party that included live music, children games, and food. Breakfast burritos, donuts, and donut holes. Yum!

Then we made our way around yet again to look at the animals. They were not out when we were walking. I took a couple of shots. Monkey, Lion, Monkey. I love monkeys. Can you tell?

Cloud Cafe

If you haven’t guessed where I am blogging from, you obviously don’t know me well enough. Cloud Cafe. Duh. Jk. It’s not like I come here all the time. But look at that butterfly. Too cute, right?

Hope you’re having an eventful Saturday thus far!

Peace & Love.
