.:funfetti cupcakes- homemade style:.

So, I stole this recipe from How Sweet It Is who I was introduced to by my friend e {she also has a blog you should check out here}.  These cupcakes are some of the most fun little fellas I’ve ever made!  They are yummy and delicious and super cute!  The recipe only makes 12 little cakes which is perfect, because lord knows I don’t need even 1 much less a whole big batch of 24 cupcakes.  Enjoy!

i like to wear flip-flops all year long. pajamas are my best friend. and nothing beats a good pair of blue jeans. i'm not an elegant writer. but i can talk the ears off a brass monkey. i smile a lot. smiling is my favorite. and yes, one of my favorite movies is Elf. my favorite color may be pink. and i might like to sing in the shower, even though i can't carry a tune in a bucket. i can't help that i like some really bad 80's music, because i do. i like old hymns too, so i think that makes up for the bad 80's music.
