I may or may not be obsessed.

Ok, ok, I am obsessed. But seriously, how can you say no to cute amazingly delicious cupcakes?! It does not get better than desserts. (Yes, I am a shocker there.) Through the course of my days at work in which I get to talk to my boss about food and other fun topics (I do actually do some work too, I promise!) I found out that there are quite a few cupcake bakery shops in and around provo and I have made it my goal in life to find all of them and love them all. I started out with the first one last night. I hung out with one of my really good friends (she was in my ward last year) and we went to a place called the Cocoa Bean, as it turns out, it was like just down the street from where I lived last year (it's probably a good thing I didn't know about it until now). We got a Better Than Whatever ;) cupcake and a raspberry chocolate cheesecake cupcake and they were both SOOO good! They also make flavored hot chocolates so I got a pumpkin flavored hot chocolate. It was ok, not my favorite, but they get brownie points for the good thought and creativity.. My friend got a frozen lemonade, which was really just a smoothie and it was really really good! Needless to say, I went over to her apartment this morning and worked out for an hour with her at their gym! It was sooo worth it. Going in there makes me miss cake decorating oh so much. I can't wait until I have an unlimited supply of ingredients and my box o' tricks!
I definately recommend this place for sure, though I don't really have much to compare it to yet.
Next time, I will bring my camera to document the heavenly event. ahhh....I love food.

good bye shoes

i should be packing right now. instead, i'm lamenting my semi-recent losses. i had to trash them before i left to come back home and have missed them oh so much since. these pictures do not do them justice...the flats were gross and the boots were so uneven on the heels that they hurt to walk in too much to be worth wearing. so before i threw them away, i thought i'd do a little photoshoot with them before i let them go.the goods to go to the trash...i ended up keeping the red ones. they should be trashed but i cannot part with them until i find replacements.
really, these were gross, you can't tell right here, but half the sole was unattached to the bottom and they were just in bad shape, but i probably could have kept them a little longer.
ok these on the other hand were soooo uncomfortable. i don't know what is wrong with me but somehow when i walk i shave the outside of the soles of my shoes, i have that problem with all of my shoes, but these are the most dramatic, probably because i wore them the most. anyways, it got so bad that walking in them just did not work anymore, it was just not fun. plus these shoes have always been a few sizes too big so put the two together and they were ready to go to the trash. but i miss them mucho. like alot alot. as in, i'm going to find new ones when i go back. these were my staple shoes, i wore them almost every day.
next to the dumpster i put them in. as i was taking this picture i think i got some weird looks, i felt a little awkward taking it, but i did anyways. i know i'm weird.

a sneek peak?

ok, ok. i know i'm, bad at blogging. i will be up here again soon for a much longer blog! in fact, there has been talk of a possible trip to the roof of my building at work for a sweet photo shoot of the city from above. prob wishful thinking, but i'll think my wishes as long as i can. anyways, if that's not happening, there are plans for a city photoshoot in the works, i just have to figure out when. and some delightfully delish snacks are in the works too. but none of this is certain. ahhh!!! only nine days left and of course i feel the sudden urge to get everything done that i never did! oh if days were only 24 hours longer!!

anyways, while we're waiting on those delightful treats i was talking about, feast on this:
look delish eh? no worries, it was.

Kimi and Kevin are getting married!!

Kimi is my roommate and her fiance, Kevin, was my fhe son last semester. Now, he's my brother. They are getting married April 24th in Idaho (that's where she's from). I'm definitely not professional, but it was still fun to take their engagements for them!
