Ok, so FINALLY, after my son was sick for a week, making up tons of projects from being sick and starting spring hockey, I was finally able to make those scrumptious cupcakes nicoleeartistry had been telling me about!! They were so fun to make - I could not keep myself from the batter, I tell you. Anyway, I thought I would share a pic of my son eating one! Thanks again nicoleeartistry for sharing your wonderful recipe!

Today is a pretty quiet day here at the Rittenhouses! I visited with my niece's new little beautiful baby boy, he is such a good baby! She is so lucky! I think we are just going to relax and enjoy the rest of the day! I hope you all can do the same.

Comfort Blogs

Are there blogs you read because they give you inspiration or just brighten your day? I love to read blogs that really inspire me and help me think outside the box. I really enjoy reading this blog for those reasons. Not only that, Blaze is an incredible artist. Her work is just beautiful. If you are looking for a great blog to read, head over there now and take a look and you will see what I mean. She is very talented, I know she will do very well wherever her path takes her!

Also, take a look in her Etsy shop!

We Now Return You. . .

to your regularly scheduled program.

I've not been in touch for a few days because my youngest has been sick -- he's had a fever and cough (5 kids in his class are sick too) for the past few days. His fever broke last night, thank goodness! And, during that time, I got my first custom order, I was so honored that someone would put their faith in me to create something for them!

Tomorrow I am going to go get the remaining item I need to make those scrumptious black bottom cupcakes!! I can't wait. My kids absolutely love muffins, chocolate, cupcakes (ok, I guess what kids don't?). So, it will be nice to make something like this for them (and me!).

Oh, and I will have more green corduroy bags up tomorrow -- those seem to go fast - they are an awesome color for spring and summer.
