After consuming many BB cupcakes, in every flavor, I realized that I am over BB cupcakes. They are kept refrigerated, which makes immediate enjoyment significantly less. The cake is too dense, the frosting too sweet. And the size. My goodness, each cupcake is easily cut into 3 manageable portions. The 3 people who live in my mother-in-law's house love these cupcakes, so I will keep buying them for those 3 people, whom I love very much. But they are not for me anymore. Nope, i've found something new.
The cupcakes from Grocery are more than a bit better. O.M.G. I had my first, a coco loco - coconut cake, cream cheese frosting, toasted coconut, on Tuesday. (Jed bought it for me as a surprise and left it at my hair salon. Seriously, my husband is great, but that's not what this post is about. ) These are how cupcakes should be - small enough for 1; moist, soft cake; icing that doesn't send you straight into an insulin overdose. The next time you find yourself on or near 13th Street (like at the Wanamaker building for a meeting with the webteam or finance), treat yourself to a delish cupcake. I'm pretty sure the beauties will make you reconsider your allegiances.

About a year ago, I learned about the website Postcards from your momma, and instantly became hooked. When I started reading the site, I was a few months from my wedding and my mom was sending me amazing emails about planning and ideas and flowers and spanx. So i did what many readers did - I submitted one of lo's better emails.
DO NOT GET SPANX. they stop circulation. It could cause fainting spells. Really they are only for the very, very skinny who have nothing to push up or down or around. Get something comfortable and not tight that will just smoth you up and down.
Love the picture. thanksI rsvp's to the Kick-off lol
This is email gold - it's got it all...the all caps yelling effect, the bizarre rant about an object of underwear, and the lol.
Long story short, the website became a book (duh) and the owners/authors (what are they called? they started the website, but what did they write?) wanted to include lois' email in said book. I am excited to say that Love, Mom is now available and it was great seeing my momma's email on pg. 63.
