Carrots, anyone?

In completely random, celebrity/vegetable related news...

Right now, Mr. Cupcake is in the middle of a conference at a swanky Upper East Side hotel. He checked in earlier this afternoon and who was waiting to check in behind him? Freakin' Carrot Top!

And, yes, apparenly he is that freakishly buff. Crazy, right?! I love New York!

The countdown begins...

For some reason, I am having a hard time believing that I will be the proud leasee of a brand new apartment in Dallas in just 5 days. 5 more days! I keep waiting for it all to sink in, but my brain is having none of it. Maybe I really am a Jersey Girl at heart (minus the big hair, save for a few years that began with what I kindly refer to as The Great Dippity-Do Gel Crisis of 1992). Even though our years spent living in Philadelphia felt more like home to us than New York ever did, there is something so oddly comforting about spending time in the area you grew up. Nostalgia is a crazy thing.

I'm spending today running last minute errands and getting most of our miscellaneous things we're not taking on the plane packed up to ship out. It really is amazing what two people can accumulate in just a month! My favorite little thing, by FAR, is my new studio/office companion:

Viva La Office!!

Long time, no blog!

I have been so wrapped up in our move that I've let the blogging momentum slip a little... not anymore!

Last week we flew down to Dallas to get a feel for where we wanted to live (Mr. Cupcake needs to be near the airport and I didn't want to be too far from downtown). We found a beautiful loft just outside of the city. The kitchen alone makes the move worth it. Just think of all the actual cupcakes I can bake and dough I can roll out on that huge island countertop?!

The pictures of my new studio didn't come out very well because of the lighting but once we're moved in I'll definitely show you a peek into where I spend my days surrounded by cute ribbons!

Otherwise I've been spending my time working on orders and tying up our loose ends up here in New Jersey. It is hard to believe that in a little more than a week, we'll be moving! Time sure files.

Something to keep in mind as you plan your shopping -- The store will be closing on 9/30 and not reopening until 10/15. All orders need to be in no later than 9/29 in order to be shipped before the move.

The good news? All headbands and cute hair clips are 20% off until we close next week! Stock up now on all of your favorites because I can promise they will not be this cheap again anytime soon. No coupon code is needed... the sale prices are already displayed on the site.

Tomorrow I'm planning to scope out some of the local craft fairs. It will be nice to be able to stroll around without having to run back to my own booth, and even nicer that there is no heavy tent-and-table-lifting involved for once. Plus, we want to soak up as much cool weather as we can since we won't be seeing 60-70 degrees again for months!
