Not much going on in my neck of the woods besides baking a batch of cupcakes.


I’m getting better at my piping technique. 🙂 So besides gorging myself on sweets, packing, and work, nothing new to report. I just did the enormous task of cleaning out my closet and I’m proud to say that I’ve purged quite a bit of clothes that I wasn’t wearing or am not interested in anymore. Those will be donated, so it doesn’t go to waste.

Last week, I was working on putting together our new crystal chandelier. Boy is that a job! Can’t wait to see it hanging in the new house, though.

I can’t pass up a new Debbie Mason book! Got accepted on NetGalley to review it.

The cupcakes look delicious! Good job on cleaning out your closet! I cleaned through my closet (and bookshelves) in December and I was so happy with the end result. It’s so much easier to choose clothes now that I’ve cleared out all the clothes that I didn’t love.


Oh yummy, I haven’t had a cupcake for so long. The chandelier you picked is beautiful, those little crystals are hard to keep clean but they look gorgeous (mine are due for a cleaning). Enjoy your week and happy reading.


Those are some georgous looking cupcakes. So good that I MUST.VISIT.THE.FRIDGE.NOW.

Have a good week!


Cupcakes are my favorite, and your’s are lovely. Nice job! That chandler is beautiful. I don’t have a room big enough for one, but I always love they way they look and the rainbows they cast when the light hits the pendants just right.


I love cupcakes and red velvet is one of my favorites. I need to do the same with my closet since it seems I don’t wear most of what’s in there.

Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

The piping looks great! It’s not nearly as easy at it looks and I’m always shocked with how hard it is on the arms! I love making cupcakes though I haven’t in awhile. The Debbie Mason book looks wonderful. I have a few of her books but haven’t read them yet. Soon! Have a great week!

Mallory @ SheisBookish

Oh those cupcakes look delicious! We’ve been on a “no desserts” phase this month and seeing all the Valenine’s Day sweets has been rough 🙂 Can’t wait to read your Lisa Kleypas review next week – can’t wait for that book to come out!

Aj @ Read All The Things!

Those cupcakes look so good! I want one. Have a great week!

Melissa's Midnight Musings

Those cupcakes look delicious! Kudos for cleaning out your closet. I did it a few months ago, but have done a bit of filling back up since then. I hope you have a nice week!

Kristin (Book Sniffers Anonymous)

I recently joined my neighborhood’s Buy Nothing group online and it’s helped me get rid of so much stuff that’s been sitting around. My problem with getting rid of clothes though, I see all the space I have after getting rid of everything, that I want to go out and fill it with new stuff. LoL


Ooh yummy looking cupcakes lol. Pass some this way! Ha ha Everwylde looks fun.

Laurel-Rain Snow

That will be a gorgeous chandelier! Thanks for sharing…and I want a cupcake, now, please! lol

Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
