As the rain falls quickly outside, we've been inside, staying cozy and preparing to celebrate sister's Birthday.
I've decided that trying to clean house and then keep it clean with the kids is like straightening my hair before going out in the rain....basically pointless. Sure my hair and the house stay put for like 5 minutes but, as soon as we take a deep breath and then exhale, the fun is over. My hair frizzes, smoothies get spilled on the floor, crumbs fall, the dogs water gets tripped on and little boys forget to 'point down' while using the bathroom. Blah.
And so we bake cupcakes. The house smells ridiculously amazing, like what I imagine pink would smell like, if it had a smell. They smell warm and sweet, with a hint of vanilla. The recipe is from Joy of Baking and the frosting is my favorite cream cheese frosting recipe.
I hope you're having a wonderful Friday!
