Up to: 12/18/07

Mr. Cupcake's Birthday
Birthday kisses, wasabi peanuts, Raspberry Truffle Mousse Cake and plasma TVs (a small one for our room) are what turning 28 is all about!

Needlessly Wanting:
Cricut Expression
While I can't think of a single (valid) business use for this electronic die cutter, I can think of 101 unnecessary ones!

Run's House
Late night channel flipping proved fruitful when I stopped on an episode of Run's House. Now I'm hooked and stalking my mail carrier since I added the previous seasons to my Netflix queue.

Finishing Up:
Last Minute Holiday Orders at The Creative Cupcake
Today was the last day for Priority Shipping and Saturday at noon will be it for Express Overnight in order to make Christmas delivery. It has been a hectic holiday (shopping) season and I am looking forward to a few days of R&R before the family comes to visit on the 26th.

I shopped but have not yet dropped

Late last night, I got some rather interesting/potentially life altering news (not to worry... it is largely positive) that may or may not happen in the near future. Kind of complicated so I promised those involved that I wouldn't blog about it now, but I promise to divulge all 3 of you reading this pretty soon.

Anyhow, it came out of nowhere and kind of threw me for a loop and while there is no real fix, I generally recommend treatment for these types of things with a bit of retail therapy. Believe you me, I did not disappoint. Along with a few pairs of jeans, a sweater, new Initials bag (the Sassy Baguette in Vermont / damask print and a turquoise monogram -- so cute!) and some other "little" things, I picked up:

Velvet flats at Old Navy

Pine Cone Hill PJs at Give Simple

Yoga Booty Ballet from Amazon (based on the recommendation of PPP)

I am doing my best to stay away from Etsy. I have no self control and I cannot be trusted near handmade goodies. Tomorrow I have to run some errands, which means a swing by Target. While there is no telling how much damage I will do there, I can only hope that a good Target-fest will get this out of my system once and for all!
