Awkward Cupcakes

Hey, did I mention that Nathan came home from deployment? He did! And when he got here, I was ready & waiting with some homemade goodies, including a pretty sweet pennant banner, which is still hanging, & these strawberry lemonade cupcakes:

What you can't tell is that those cupcakes actually read "WELCOME HOMF," which sounds vaguely German, because there were not enough E's available on the sheet of candy letters. Still, it was better than my first attempt at a welcome message, which looked like this:

Yeah, I think that error was a little bit more noticeable.

And then I ate a bunch of the leftover candy letters. And regretted it.

In keeping with the awesome cupcake theme, I made Sprinkles red velvet cupcakes for a BBQ I hosted last weekend while in Ohio. I wish I'd thought to take a photo when there was more than one cupcake left in the pan, as it would've been slightly more giggle-worthy. Alas, these desserts were so delicious that they temporarily blurred my blogability senses. Anyway, these cupcakes look distinctly like a part of the female anatomy, which did not go unnoticed by my guests.

Not on purpose, I swear! Apparently Sprinkles is a big, famous NYC bakery. How come no one ever accuses the Sprinkles folks of making boob cupcakes?!

Katy Perry, at least, would be proud.

As Charlie Sheen Would Say, #Winning*

You may recall that 22 days ago, I posted about a magazine subscription giveaway generously sponsored by ValueMags.com. Over the course of the last three weeks, I've realized one of the key reasons why I so rarely do giveaways: I forget to end them. So now, three weeks & one day later (thanks for your patience, ValueMags.com people), I have blessed you with an awkward video of me & my ginormous feather earrings as I announce the winner.

Yeah, thanks for that stellar screenshot, Blogger. Anyway, I swear it was all on the up & up:

Expand away, friend! 

*God, that phrase is so overused. Please forgive me, readers, for I have sinned, but how could I pass up the only valid opportunity to use such a passe hashtag from a crazy man?
