Dagnabbit....Elephants Forget

I realize the title makes no sense, but I was trying to use the letters from the three days I forgot to post! I didn't really forget, forget, but on all the days I didn't realize until it was "crawling into bed o'clock" and thought "I'll just post it in the a.m.", then when I'd wake up in the morning, life would happen and *poof* another day gone. So...I'm taking the off day to catch up. I don't know of that means Monday is "F" or "G"...I'll decide tomorrow and go with the flow. Lol
Thanks for sticking with me I gotta get back to that life thing!

There is something so innocent, but sinful about a cake that can fit in the palm of your hand.
Moist chocolate, rich vanilla, creamy fluffy frosting.
They can be messy, they can be filled, they can be sweet or savory.
I look forward to holidays, gatherings, events at my husbands work, just so I can go nutso and create tiny, delicious masterpieces.
Don't get me wrong, I am more than a one trick pony (I've actually never seen a pony perform a trick) I can bake or cook anything you put in front of me, but cupcakes are my go-to. That treat that gets the most "oooh's and ahhh's" when they're seen and eaten. And lets face it folks, we need a little ego boosting now and again...some of us more than others....

I have made such flavors as 
Peppermint Mocha (Mocha cake with Peppermint frosting)
Eggnog (kind of self explanatory)
Irish Car Bombs (Guiness chocolate cake, whiskey ganache filling and Irish cream frosting)
Cinnamon Toast Crunch (cinnamon cake with a cinnamon toast crunch frosting)
Apple/Cinnamon (apple cider cake, snicker doodle frosting)
And lots more.

Thing is, I'm running out of new ideas, so I'm asking for suggestions!
Comment below and tell me either your favorite cupcake flavor, or one that sounds good
Be wacky, throw out anything that sounds good. Who knows, maybe yours will be the one I make next!
Which would probably be awesome if I were famous, and you were a fan....but I'm not, so we'll just pretend!
1, 2, 3....go!

Beating the clock

I had the busiest day today, that I've had in a long time. I just barely sat down...and its on the edge of my bed, on the verge of crawling in and falling into a comatose state.
I completely forgot to plan my post it is. judging. At least I made a post today! Now I can fall asleep knowing everything I set out to accomplish today...was done.

Excuse me while I pat myself on the back.

*pats back*

Till tomorrow. G'night Y'all

About time!

I look forward to the A-Z blogging challenge every year. Mainly because I love to write, but I can never get myself to sit and put my thoughts into words. This challenge forces me to do just that!

So let me start out by telling you a little about me...

I was born into the nuttiest, craziest, weirdest family I've ever met, and they helped to mold me into the genuinely nutty person typing before you today.
I think if I had to choose one word to describe me, it would be "Eclectic". I'm a big ball of everything rolled into one awesome person.
On an average day you'll usually find me chasing after my two girls, cleaning my house and doing things that a domesticated wife does. However, there's a lot more to this girl than doing laundry and reading bedtime stories.
As I mentioned above, I love to write. I wrote my first story when I was 8 years old. I found an old typewriter in the back of my parents closet, fitted with a dust cover, and ready to create the worlds that were trapped in my head. I have more composition books laying around my house than any normal person should. All half filled with ideas, story lines, lists, anything I can put on paper.
Music is usually playing somewhere in my house, or car. One day it'll be classic rock (AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Kansas, etc...) and the next it might be Pop, Country, or Rap. My husband always jokes he can tell what kind of mood I'm in based on what's playing that day!
I'm a self proclaimed nerd. I love everything that makes a nerd a nerd. I am currently surrounded by posters sporting characters such as Buffy, Dean & Sam (Supernatural), Marvel heroes, Anime, Video Games.

When I had to come up with a topic for this challenge I couldn't decide on just one, so I went back to an existing blog, where I can write, and dabble in my other love, photography.

I can't always say what the posts will be about. I have no idea. One day it might be something to do with food ( I love cooking) One day it might be a random thought, or story.

I am looking forward to seeing what I can come up with, and get my muse to wake up from her long slumber, to help out with some ideas!!

Happy Blogging Month!
