We interrupt this hiatus...

to bring you breaking news:

We have found our cupcakes!!!! WhoooHoooooo!!!

Those following know that we have been searching high and low for the yummiest cupcakes we could find in Seattle for our wedding. Until now, it's been a pretty sad showing for Seattle. I got a tip from the beautiful Jen at Craftiness NOW who used her connections to get me some inside info on the best cupcakes in Seattle.  Two shops were recommended which we had yet to try. One of the two recommended, Trophy Cupcakes, was rated higher for taste. It's 100% taste for us and ok, I do want them to be pretty.

We tried the Trophy Cupcakes the other day and HOLY MOLY they are yum-UM-mers!!!!!!

Stroop Waffle, Lemon Coconut & Red Velvet

Triple Chocolate

These are all a perfect combination of flavor, texture, moistness and sweetness (as in not too sweet). Best Red Velvet, my ultimate comparison base, I have ever had and with proper cream cheese frosting. Plus, they are pretty!

We haven't even bothered trying the second recommendation. Not sure I need to.

Thank you Jen!!!!!!! You just helped make our wedding sweeter :)

Note to self: make sure to have at least one cupcake available for devouring when writing about cupcakes. Seriously drooling.

I'll post more tidbits when I can.

There is much going on around here.

Most importantly and most time consuming is our impending move. For the next few months the blog may suffer from neglect as we find a home, pack, move, unpack and decorate. You would think it gets easier each time but it never seems to work out that way.

We are excited about the move, we can't wait, but not about the actual moving.

Add to that, conferences, design jobs and other randomness of fate and I end up slacking on the blog.

I will blog when and if I can.

See you on the other side!

Cupcakes & Butterflies,

Lost Angels

I am back from Los Angeles (aka Lost Angels). Was a fab trip to meet my new nephew EJ. He is the new, 2 month old,  son of one of my best girlfriends ever, M. We met in the dorms at UCB while living on the same all girls floor. We met our other bestest girlfriend, I, a year later and eventually she ended up as my roommate in my apartment at UCB. We have all been like sisters since. I actually stayed at I's lovely home in Rendondo Beach. M is the first to procreate. Guess I need to admit I am of adult age now. Dang it.

Here are some highlights from the trip:

Full painting I mentioned previously.

She slept with me every night and made me less lonely without Y and Zira.

She's called Nubbins because she has a nub for a tail.

She may have slept with me as well but she definitely checked up on me and Nubbins.
Nubbins would not relinquish the prime spot next to my tummy.
Superfly may have opted for the foot of the bed.
She's called Superfly because well, look at her, she is super fly.

Dr. R's Sparring Partner
Scared the ba-gee-zuss out of me in the morning as I rounded the corner.
Dr. R is I's hubby and vet to all our kitties and pooches at one time or another.
He kicks this dummy's ass with some form of martial art I can't remember.

We went to check out the Police Experience one night.

The dude totally sounded like Sting to me.
Looks-wise, well, from far away and blurry, you could make believe.

Also got a chance to take in an old school movie experience at the Old Time Music Hall in El Segundo. It was way too fab.

The Wurlitzer was amazing and sing-a-long was fun.

There was a Tsunami warning in effect. We opted to not eat that day on the water. The next day after breakfast I missed all the crazy surfers trying to ride the big waves but I could tell the ocean was higher than normal.


 The blimp made it's usual appearance as well. 

It was a great trip.
