addicted to buttercream

The past couple of weeks have been busy busy busy...lots of end of semester projects and papers due, training site interviews, and a quick trip home to Louisiana. I've also been baking cupcakes for my lovely friends who were so generous and made donations to help fund my upcoming mission trip. One friend requested buttercream frosting, which is my absolute favorite. I haven't made buttercream in a while, and I had forgotten how addictive it can be. I probably consumed 5000 delicious calories just tasting to make sure it was "just right" and licking the bowl. I'm strongly considering just making a big bowl of buttercream to eat on everything possible.

Yesterday I took a few minutes to go thrifting, which I haven't done in forever. I found quite a few treasures that I can't wait to share with you in future posts. I bought a pretty little vase, old fashioned ice cream soda glasses, and a couple of vintage dresses that I plan to alter and reconstruct. My new vase was longing to be filled with flowers, so I scooped up this cheerful bunch of tulips.

Fun stuff! I love new fun items from thrift stores - my sister is the best thrifter ever, so she's a great person to tag along with. Good luck getting the end of the semester stuff all taken care of!

Is there anything you’re not good at? I mean, you’re going to be a doctor, you know how to sew, cook and bake. You’re like a modern day Wonder Woman ;)

These cupcakes looks absolutely delicious and you decorated them so well.

It sounds like you found some great things at the thrift shop and those tulips are so pretty.
