weekend recap

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well-rested from the weekend, and enjoying the work week! My weekend was fun and it involved ONE lovely lunch with some great friends, TWO movies on a hot afternoon, and LOTS and LOTS of cupcakes!

Last week, I decided to track down all of the cupcake boutiques near my house and the surrounding areas. [By the way, there are tons!] C and I came up with the idea to visit two at a time and do a taste-off between them! So far, we've tried 4 places which equates to 8 cupcakes! Don't worry...we just "sample" them! There's no way we could handle that much sugar at once. I will be posting the taste-offs, complete with pictures and commentary, very soon!

still so many to try!

Once again, this weekend was HOT! We decided to go to the movies to avoid the sun [it was 107 on Saturday] and ended up seeing Inception and Predators. The verdict? I very, very, very highly recommend Inception. It was amazing! The plot, the actors, the cinematography...all wonderful! Aaaaaand skip Predators.


On Sunday, I was able to meet up with Kate, Amanda, and Danielle for a yummy lunch at Toast! We had a great time catching up and it's always good to see them. Of course we didn't take a picture, but I will tell you that Danielle's hair looks great!

Inception was fantastic!! Loved that movie. And I'm so jealous of your cupcake tasting, I'd love to do that! Have a great day.

Cupcake tasting sounds like too much fun! I'm excited to see what you thought of each place. I'm assuming there will be lots of pictures?!
Love,

Oh Crumbs. How I miss it. What I wouldn't do for a Crumbs cupcake right about now.

Fun! Heading out to Inception tonight. Glad to hear you liked it. I was a little wary.

What a great idea - I need to have a cupcake contest here in Birmingham.

Danielle said...

You are too sweet. As you know I do not agree but I'm glad you like my haircut. It was so nice seeing you!

How fun...a cupcake showdown! I love it. We don't have enough places around us to do something like that, but I know it would be fun. Crumbs is on my list of cupcake places I must try.

Geof wants to see both Predators and Inception, but I really only want to see Inception. I've been hearing such great things about it. I'm going to try and catch it this weekend.

That's great that you got to meet up with the ladies for lunch.

I'm glad you had a nice weekend...xoxo

The cupcake challenge is a fantastic idea!!! Awww... I'm tearing up. I went to Toast with Danielle and Kate (you weren't with us????). So fun!

I made cupcakes on Friday and I did give some away but I'm addicted I ate so many! I can't make cupcakes again unless I can only leave myself only a few or I'll eat them all - I've had a permanent sugar high all weekend! Sounds like you had a great weekend!
