The view from my fridge...


Happy Easter.


An Easter tradition...
Coconut carrot cupcakes with cream cheese icing.


Recipe:
Betty Cr*cker Carrot Cake mix... make it like the box says (they oughta know right?)... If you are brave mix in the following crushed pineapple, raisins, coconut, almonds, vanilla flavoring... I added all but the pineapple this year. Bake them for 17 minutes. Let them cool completely before icing (this is a biggie people... I am 37 and I still have trouble with the "let them cool before icing part".


Use the AWESOME Betty Cr*cker cream cheese icing...mix in lots of coconut and green food coloring until it looks like a grassy gloppy mess but tastes amazing. Shovel it on the cupcakes... the sloppier you are the better it looks because it is supposed to be grass!!! Add a bunny or a chick peep and a few jelly belly's for Easter eggs and viola... you are M*rtha Stewart!

Thinking that this is our last Easter as a twosome is thrilling! I can't wait to make these next year with a baby crawling or WALKING around!

Happy Easter... please say a prayer for us today.

Those are such cute cupcakes. Nicely done.

I am anxious for Fin to get here - and I just need to say how wonderful it is that you are already so in love with the little girl you have not met and do not know. You have a special kind of heart - both of you do. And your daughter is going to fall so in love with you...

Hoping Fin arrives soon.

Oh and on a previous post....IGNORE other moms/parents who tell you that you have no idea what it entails....Remember they did not either!!!
