Keep Calm and Have a Cupcake

It's been a crazy summer this year and it's not just because of the insane heat, which I can't stand.  Between Sarah's imminent move and wedding dress shopping with Megan last Saturday, I also got the news that my entire roof needs to be replaced.  That shock took a good week to get over - it's mind boggling how much a roof costs, but mine will be replaced right down to the plywood and I'll have new waterproofing installed that this house has never seen..

For my birthday this year, my co-worker and friend, sister-in-snark and amazing baker buddy Teresa gave me this gift bag.  I told her it's never leaving the house or being regifted, plus I decided it's the perfect mantra for the upcoming year...

I liked it so much that I bought a matching journal from Indigo to carry around with me.  All I need to do this week is call the roofer on Tuesday and tell him he's got the job and hopefully get in some baking time for Duncan's birthday on Friday.


  1. It must be something about this month, Brig....I've been forced to spend over $14,000 I don't really have, to recoup stuff that's happened. *sigh*
    Maybe I need a cupcake. Not that I could afford one.

    1. Lori, at least we can commiserate with each other! The next time I see you, I'll make sure to bring you a cupcake. ;)

  2. This is cute... you still gonna bake for Dunc's birthday ;)

  3. Yes, I still want to bake for Dunc! The problem this week has been finding some time to do it - and pick the right apple dessert for him. ;)
