Welcome to the Neighborhood!

We recently had some new neighbors move in so I thought I'd send over a homemade treat in hopes of making some new friends! Last night I made some lemon cupcakes with a lemon buttercream frosting! I gave some to our apartment's maintenance men too - they work so hard to keep our complex clean and tidy!

What do you think? Kind of looks like a glass of lemonade - perfect for a hot summer day!



If you want the recipe, I'd be happy to e-mail it to you. It's super easy and VERY tasty!

Have a lovely day!!! Don't forget to enter my giveaway for personalized stationery from The Design Girl!

Also, my bloggy friend Shell is celebrating her blog's 2nd birthday! How exciting - she is having a giveaway a week and the first one is for a Vera Bradley handbag in the peacock print! Go visit, enter for your chance to win, and make a new friend in the process!!
