Here are a few pictures of the 4 dozen cupcakes and 7 dozen cookies I made within 48 hours of completing my final exams…I may have gone a bit overboard, but it was so fun! I’ve spent the past two days packing up the contents of my apartment and wondering how in the world I have acquired so much stuff. Today we took 4 car-loads of stuff out to the house. Saturday is the official move-in day, so I only have 2 more nights left in the apartment. I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!
While I had hoped to be a blogger-extraordinaire over Christmas break and post outfits and such at least once a day, things aren’t working out quite as I had planned. Most of my clothes are currently packed away. Since I’ve been packing/cleaning pretty much all day every day, I’ve been living in sweats and tees. Once I get into the house, unpack my clothing, and start dressing like less of a hoodlum, I intend to start posting outfits again. Also, I’ve got that new blog project that I mentioned before. It kind of goes hand-in-hand with some of my new years resolutions. I can’t wait to tell you about it next week! Until then…more packing.

    Haha, thank you, Tina! To be honest, I didn’t really care for them too much. I’m weird about eating odd food combinations. Hope you have a happy New Year!

    If I wasn’t a vegetarian, I would be all over your bacon cupcake. Congratulations on the move!
