Well my weekends have really been great these past two weeks. Last week obviously I was in Durango – which was a blast and this weekend I had a great time here in Denver.
It all started off with making some amazing Pina Colada cupcakes – sadly I didn’t take a finished photo of mine for some weird reason I spaced out getting one. But I have the recipe from Your Cup of Cake – an amazing blog for fun unique cupcakes.
This recipe needed a few special items, but none of them were expensive. I used jam for the ‘strawberry puree’ because I wasn’t going to do that step. I did however love the coconut milk brand I used.
While I was shopping I saw this monstrosity though… Marketing/Materialism/Capital proof that the whole ‘baking thing’ has gone over-board. Shake and pour?
I also made great leeway on my thesis – I re-outlined the 30ish pages I have and now it’s going to flow so much better. Still a ways to go, but I have my deadlines in mind and am ready to rock it out!!! Here is what my workspace looks like daily.
I managed to get to Target as well and saw these amazing buys…. I wish I was a little kid so the shirt would fit. I’m still debating if I should just start collecting the monster high girls… I probably should.
Then Saturday I attended the Evil Soul’s Car Club ‘Carnage’ Car show. It was great. There are always so many great vintage, collectible, and unique cars. There was a Scion with Lambo doors – I guess I’m really lacking with my stock-edition of my xB.
Me and my partner in crime for the day. I’m not sure why my top muffin-topped my arm but it was a cute vintage inspired outfit for the day.
Then today I met up with a fabulous friend for some ‘suburbs-fun.’ Went shopping at quite a few places – I picked up a new denim dress, a HK bento box (photos later), and the BEST a geisha costume for Leopold. He posed for the picture perfectly!
A great weekend to prepare me for an entire week of thesis work (with a short break for a tattoo on tuesday!!!).
