Baking

Saturday is for Cupcakes

Thanks for all the nice comments about ELR’s new look. Y’all sure know how to make a girl feel good! Don’t get too attached though because this layout is only temporary as we work on designing ELR 2.0, which will be launched in a few months. I had to make a switch to a different design because, well, the one I had been using was as old school as they come and was the same one I started blogging with back in 2007!

I dig change.

Thanks for sticking with me through the mass construction of this site. I promise it will be worth the wait! If not, I’ll just send you some cookies. Mm k?

On another note, it’s time to say goodbye.

Rocky’s headed back to college next week and what do we do when someone moves away?

We throw a par-tayyy!

I left the grilling to the boys and instead spent my afternoon doin’ a little of this:

And this

Mmmm love this.

Recipe to come!

    I’m impressed at the pictures of all of the whole cupcakes! They look so good! I think my picture would have been after it was half eaten because I wouldn’t have been able to wait!

    I typically only read through google reader, but had to open it up to view the layout. Its nice. The girl and the words make the blog though. Not the layout…..and those cupcakes don’t hurt matters either…..
