Of Chocolate and Cupcakes

Happy Halloween!!!! This is probably one of my most favorite holidays… Right after Christmas, and Thanksgiving. 🙂

This is my first Halloween as a diabetic… And maybe I was a bit naughty about a few things… But God, that chocolate was worth it! haha  The cupcakes were as equally delicious – my sister, the master chef, baked them from scratch! They are vanilla spice, pumpkin, caramel cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting and strawberry, and grape nerds on top… Worth every carb. I am going to pry the recipe out of her, and post it – they were that amazing!!! 🙂

Today was also the day that I finished my first scarf ever!!! I felt so accomplished. 🙂 haha Yay for small accomplishments in the world of “domestic goddess attempts”… I just started my next project – the yarn is different, and fuzzy, and it’s kinda hard to see the stitches properly – but I shall master this knitting thing! But I digress.

Today’s Halloween Happy List Consists Of:

  • Doing my lil’ bro’s zombie makeup. He looked awesome!
  • Eating regular, fun sized kit-kats and crunch bars, and drinking the Anniversary blend from Starbucks while giving out candy
  • Spending time with my family 🙂
  • Finishing my first ever scarf!!! (I’m a little proud of myself at the moment…)
  • Beautiful fall colors
  • Knowing the Holidays are coming sooner than later.
  • NanoWriMo starting in a matter of mere hours….
  • Sweet text messages from the boyfriend 🙂
  • Trying on masks at the store for photo-ops
  • smiling
  • resolving to start running in the morning… (Gotta start training for the next RUN FOR YOUR LIVES event!!!!)
  • Learning from my master-crafts-woman of a grandmother 🙂
  • instagram
  • Sugar-free lattes, on wet, cold mornings!

Happy!

Today: Wednesday is My Sunday.

 

Today is my Sunday! Tomorrow begins my nice, short little work week!  Today I got to spend the morning having breakfast with my wonderful boyfriend – being silly, and just enjoying each other’s company – it’s the best.  Great start to a beautiful, rainy, and downright chilly, fall “Sunday” for yours truly.

I also embarked up on a new adventure this afternoon: Becoming a Domestic goddess!!!!… Okay, maybe not a domestic goddess; but baby steps, right?!

Today  was the day I learned how to knit a scarf!  If you don’t know me – I’m not exactly the most “crafty” woman in my family. My sister and grandmother are brilliant at it all.   So, this is pretty awesome. And I’m excited!!!!  Now the question remains: Fringe, or no fringe…..? Hmmm… We shall see… (see left: the beginnings of my new project!)
