one of my best friends at work, if not my best, is leaving us for another company. thank god it's right down the hill and he lives so close! otherwise, i'd be slightly traumatized.
nothing a few cupcakes can't fix! i made 36 cupcakes for my coworkers today - i better be the office favorite.
michelle and i made them them recently, so i just had to make them again because they were so delish! i made a slight variation, but same ingredients! i just used golden oreos with chocolate for the bottom of the cupcake and for the garnish :) you can find the recipe here at Annie's Eats.
**note: i used fat free cream cheese for the frosting. use full fat if you don't want it to be runny like mine....

Just a random little wednesday HH turned into meeting two of the coolest people ever (in the DC area, at least!)!! Bruce Allen is the GM of the Washington Redskins and the second picture is with Larry Michael, the voice of the Redskins!!!!
They were both SO kind and each chatted with us for a few minutes! What a randomly fun surprise :)

(adapted from *picky palate)
1 box sugar free yellow cake mix
4 large bananas, mashed (about 2 1/2 Cups)
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 Tablespoons normal honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place all ingredients into bowl and combine well.
Use a cookie scoop and scoop dough onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 11-15 minutes or until cooked through. Let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
4 dozen-ish cookies
I found this recipe and made it the next day for our all girl's dinner party! These were such a hit, and I couldn't just eat 1...or 2...or 3! Please make these, they are SO simple and so delish! and really, they require no skills!
*also - I can't take credit for the prep on this one, my sister Claire made them all :) and she did a great job for someone who claims she can't cook or bake!

bloggy friends! as time has gone on, i've had a lot of people ask for my flowers, headbands, pins, whatevs, to accessorize themselves! i am thrilled!
soooo....as a result of the positive feedback, i decided that i wanted to "brand" myself!
the past few days, michelle (my extremely creative bestie) and i discussed possible brand-y names/logos/colors! she whipped up this bad boy in no time, and i am SO EXCITED!! it represents me and my crafts well: simple, clean, lovely. :)
To keep my options open, i decided to order a rubber stamp ! YAY for colored stamps and paper! i figure that from this point forward, i can just attach this "branding" on a ribbon or a piece of cardstock to my crafted items! can't wait to show you what it looks like when it comes!
