i really don't mean to freak anyone out. not really.


one of my mom's best friends and i went on a cupcake adventure to Crave, a cupcake bakery that opened up downtown more than a few months ago. and upon entering this beautiful bright pink building, i felt like i was transported back to my Chicago days of cupcake bakeries on every corner and cupcakes of every flavor.

i think i might have freaked out the girl working that day. Miss Sue and i were over the top with excitement. who gets this excited over cupcakes? *points to self* um, this girl. this girl gets overly excited. 

and i ended up buying a half dozen - for me, dad and my sister, of course. not entirely all for me. *wink* i came home with an oreo (for me!), maple bacon (up for grabs!), red velvet (for me!), peanut butter (for me!), banana pudding (for daddy!), and coconut (for ashley!). oh, my goodness - i indulged in the PB (so good!) and the Red Velvet one today (heavenly! to die for!). i cannot wait to try the Oreo one next. i'll see if i can wait it out till tomorrow...


i'm thinking that i might have to venture on another Crave cupcake adventure very, very soon. anyone care to join? 
i'll try not to freak you (or anyone else) out with my cupcake giddiness. 

i said i'd try. not making any promises.

much love.
{happy thursday, friend.}

p.s. two sweet giveaways happening HERE and oh, yes HERE.

  17. If only I lived nearer.

    i get giddy in these bakerys proabably because i am indecisive and feel pressured but am so exciting and want everything and I think the smell of the sugar makes me hyper never mind the taste. So all in all I get a lot of weird stares.

  25. You are the luckiest girl in the world. We don't have a cupcake shop around here. But tons of donut shops, so I'll live.
