A Wonderful Sunday

by Meghann on February 22, 2009

I present to you the Blog Worthy Cupcakes

Aren’t these adorable?!?! My Uncle did all of the decorating himself by hand. Apparently he has this hidden cake decorating talent that I never knew about it. Too bad none of this skills got in my genes. lol

It was great see all of my family this afternoon in celebration of my baby cousins’ baptisms. There was quite a party food spread of pizzas, fruit and salad.

I grabbed 2 slices of Veggie Pizza, Some Salad and Fruit on my plate.

It was fun telling everyone I had ran 12 miles that morning and an over 1000 calorie deficit to fulfill. ๐Ÿ™‚

I also add an adorable cupcake with more fruit on the side.

I wanted to get a picture of the two guests of honor in their adorable white christening outfits but they are 2 and 4 therefore impossible to have sit still together for longer then 5 minutes. ๐Ÿ™‚

After the baptism celebration I was a lazy bum and napped before running to my weekly grocery store run. I snacked on a TJ Chocolate Chip granola bar, Tami was kind enough to send me.

It was soo good and I LOVED all the chocolate!

I was feeling Indian for dinner tonight and discovered this recipe for Yellow Curry Chicken with Basmati Rice on the blog Just Taste by Kelly Ann.

The only changes I made with the recipe was adding cauliflower and kale in place of green beans and peas.

It was really simple and took me less then 30 minutes to make, which is good since I was meeting my friend to see Confessions of a Shopaholic about 45 minutes after I started cooking. ๐Ÿ™‚

Before the movie I have a Non-Fat Sugar Free Vanilla Roobios Tea Latte.

The movie was so cute, but so different form the books. I am a big fan of the books and have re read all of them at least 3 times. In the movie they took key characters from the book and just shifted their roles. Like I said it was good, but if you haven’t read the books I would highly suggest you pick up copies ASAP!

Alright its past my bedtime and I actually have to go to work tomorrow….booo! Only 5 more days until the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Those cupcakes are so cute! Thanks for the movie review – I loved the books too and can tell from the previews that the movie must be quite a bit different (especially because Becky Bloomwood is American in the movie and not British!!).

27 Diana (Soap & Chocolate) February 23, 2009 at 12:17 pm

Seriously, the movie was so different from the books! The movie had some great funny parts, but why did they mess with the story so much?! It was a bit disappointing, but I did enjoy looking at all the pretty clothes…and Hugh Dancy.

28 Sweet and Fit February 23, 2009 at 12:40 pm

wow! I can’t believe your uncle made those cupcakes! they are too cute! what a perfect day to have that big calorie deficit =)
