Busy Week

I have had this goal to write one post a week. To come up with one new recipe to share or to bake at least one new thing I have never tried to bake before. As much as I strive to keep up with my goals, a little thing like life gets in the way. So as I have done before I will re-cap my week with some photos and a few blurbs on what I actually did.

One week ago today I got some new and amazing tattoos by Uncle Josh at Lady Luck Tattoo in Tempe. Josh is an amazingly talented artist who not only does tattoos but paints as well. The pieces I commissioned him for were of a cupcake (of course) and a 1950's dough mixer. His vision perfectly matched mine and my legs and his art were a match made in heaven.

I also joined a gym to keep my calves in shape so as not to distort my new artwork. (: Timmy and I are now working out three nights a week. I have already lost 30 pounds! Ha ha just kidding. Timmy and I have been spending more quality time together and less time zoning out on zombie films, which by the way Zombieland is the best movie ever. We took the little doggies to the park the other day and had a super fun time. Ellie even met a chihuahua friend!

This past weekend I baked an insane amount of goodies for the ASU Art Museum Street Walk and met some people in the downtown Phoenix area who I will be helping with an event this weekend at Bragg's Pie Factory. I made Chocolate Peanut butter cupcakes with Newman's own peanut butter cookies in the center, Coconut Cupcake with a fudgy filling, snickerdoodles, white chocolate chip and pistachio cookies, gluten-free rice snacks smothered in dark chocolate and strawberry shortcakes. And I only took one silly photo, what was I thinking?

I was at the event thanks to the lovely girls at Loveland Boutique in Tempe. They are both super smart sassy girls with a unique boutique for women and children.

I also attended a birthday party for a co-worker and a farewell party for another co-worker. Tim (not to be mistaken with my Timmy) is one of the silliest people I have ever met and I can say I am quite saddened by his departure and although I will miss him, I will still never create a Facebook page for him to email me on. Sorry Tim.

  1. Yay! I was wondering when you were going to 'tell us' about your tattoos. I saw them on Flickr and just died; they are so gorgeous.
    Looks like you have been a busy little bee.
    It's funny because when I read that you lost 30 lbs. I was thinking "Is there anything let of her?!" and getting really concerned but I was wrong you little joker you!
    p.s. Yay! For Zombie movies! The boy and I love horror movies and especially zombie movies. I also have a soft spot for just plain terrible horror movie. I know- I am a sadist.
