Sunday Cupcakes, Lattes and Other Indulgences

Today was a good day. I wasn't so sure when I woke up and saw snow outside, covering everything in sight, but it turned out okay (and now the snow has already melted). First (after a fantastic Mr. Pumpkin quiche), we took a walk down to our local coffee joint Lily's for coffee and a treat. The wee one enjoyed it because he got to see some dogs and trucks and buses along the way, and I liked it because the top of my caramel latte tasted exactly like a perfectly toasted marshmallow (and looked like it, too).

We had guests coming for dinner (buy some art...DO IT) and it was a great excuse for me to get out some Pampered Chef tools I've never used. I made cupcakes with hidden vegetables (thanks Jessica Seinfeld) and topped them with pink and purple frosting. Yum. The homemade mac 'n' cheese wasn't bad, either. There was a lot of kid chaos and Wee Pumpkin loved every minute. As they walked to their car to go home, he looked at us and said with conviction: "More?" So, needless to say he likes playing with other kids. Especially adorable little girls.

Now, I'm in pajamas, enjoying listening to the song Notorious by Duran Duran. Does it get better?

Hope you had a good weekend!
