Nutmeg as been begging, no BEGGING to make these cupcakes since she first got the maker at Christmas time. We've been avoiding it ever since she made the first batch after she got it at Christmas time. Really, dread isn't quite a strong enough word. I'd read warning from disgruntled parents, but decided to be the cool parent and get one anyway. It's all she really really wanted. I should have listened. They are impossibly messy, taste like cardboard gone bad, and... well I can't think of anything good to say. Wait, there is one things. She still loves it all the same. So we finally pulled it out with her little friend down the street for round number two. And yes, the cupcake maker won again. Luckily, we are out of mix. So maybe I did win after all!
These little gems are a candy we brought back from Paris for the kiddos. They were actually supposed to be shared with the kids of my amazing bff who watched them all while we took our trip. I mean, really... 7 kids, Bug being the oldest at 7. WOW. But being the lame one I am, we totally forgot... took the whole bucket home, and it turned out to be a rockin cool treat the kids LOVED! I'm a shmuck. :)
We really had no clue what we were getting, but we lucked out. They are hollow little foam-ish things, that have a very sour but sweet powder inside. I even kept sneaking them when the kids weren't looking!
and really, you didn't want to miss out on this one did you? lol
Okay, so this isn't really about knick-knacks... but that's kinda how I feel about these pictures. Just a little side decor to what was going on in life. But not a main focus. Something at some point that I wanted to say something about, but that ship has long sailed. So here I'll share a few with you, just because.. why not?
