funfetti & faithful sunday

Today was a first: It was my first time ever to make cupcakes. I'm not a huge fan of baking, and I do my best to keep sugary foods out of my house, so the combination of the two means I've never before made cupcakes. So, what's the special occasion? Today is one of my co-worker's birthday, and we will be celebrating tomorrow with these funfetti cupcakes. (As a side note, I didn't even know what funfetti was...I had to google it.)

Along with baking cupcakes, and taking my pups for a walk, I spent some of my day at B & N Bookstore browsing through bathroom remodeling books. After our trip last week to Menards and finding the perfect and most beautiful aqua glass tile, we've decided to go ahead with a minor bathroom remodel this summer. Last summer I painted it an oceany aqua blue, and this summer we will be adding a new counter, sink, faucet, tile backspash and shower. I can't wait!

Here is your yogathought for the day from Marianne Williamson:

"To trust in the force that moves the universe is faith. Faith isn't blind, it's visionary. Faith is believing that the universe is on our side, and that the universe knows what it's doing. Faith is a psychological awareness of an unfolding force for good constantly at work in all dimensions. Our attempts to direct this force only interferes with it. Our willingness to relax into it allows it to work on our behalf."

I am dying to know...what in the world is funfetti?

BTW, there is a FABULOUS cookbook from Babycakes in NYC that offers vegan, sugar free cake recipes. And they are delicious!

Pink Heels-Glad to know I'm not the only one who didin't know what funfetti was! :) Essentially it's a brand that has cake mixes and icings with little confetti-like dots in it.

Mandy-Thanks so much for the blog award. It truly means so much to me to have regular readers of my blog! Thank you, again.
