I’ve been so NAUGHTY lately you guys! It’s horrible!! I’m embarrassed, really. This past friday I drove way out east to my friend Emily’s house to spend the night with her so we could prepare for her baby shower on Saturday. By “prepare”, I mean decorate 57 monkey cupcakes. We got the idea from Pinterest, obviously. There was cake, frosting, Nilla wafers, galore. The next day was even worse. That’s when we broke out the marshmallows, frozen bananas, strawberries, and the icing on the cake. By icing on the cake, I do not mean the frosting on our cupcakes!!. It was a freakin’ chocolate fountain!!!! Why Emily?! And why universe?!
Here is a picture of our monkey cakes:
Although I’ve let my eating habits go to shit this past weekend, I have not thrown in the towel physically. Friday morning I went on my first run outside. It seemed a lot harder to me than the treadmill, so I’ve vowed to only use the TM when the temperature outside reaches a level that the tar in the street gets stuck to my shoes. It happens here people, I swear. I need to get used to running outside. The un-evenness of the roads, the pace that seems impossible to keep steady. All things I’m learning. And like my Daily Dose, it never gets easier, but I’m sure as hell getting better. Plus it’s so beautiful here lately. See?
