and really evaluating what i am doing in college.
i have been feeling kinda (okay EXTREMELY) overwhelmed. and maybe a little lost.
at work today while browsing some of my favorite blogs that always lift my spirit and make me smile (examples here & here) i found lists of simple, beautiful, little things that make every day great.
i was inspired to take a breath and remember what makes this journey called life even more beautiful.
E: "c. do you love me?"
C:"more than anything in the whole entire wide world."
E: "you promise, promise?"
C: "promise, promise" then he kisses me on the head.
and i smile,because i know he means it.
2# picnics in the park
3# new sexy high heels
4# the smell of fresh laundry
5# ice cold diet coke
6# chicken fingers & fries submerge in ranch & ketchup
7# sunday dinners with my family
8# salt lake valley sunsets (best in the world)
9# warm summer nights staring at the stars
10# kisses from my c.
oh the wonderful simple pleasures in life.

this is my awesome Giant Cupcake cake pan after her maiden voyage.
(on a side note if anyone would like their own awesome giant cupcake pan by wilton-they are available at target, and amazon.com. mine is from amazon because it was like $10 cheaper- also, the bottom takes longer to bake then the top does!! fill the bottom half and start baking it for 15-20 minutes then add the batter to the top. this should make it so the top does not burn)

i was really really nervous how this would taste because i have never made a homemade cake before - it think it turned out alright, well nobody died after eating it so i am going to take that as a good sign. everyone said it was good, but i think they were just being nice to me :)
P.S. on a totally separate note, i have not bit my nails in 7 days. this is a very big deal!!

colors of the rainbow
this is what they look like on the inside. i did not get a picture of these aborable little things frosted because my little nikon was exhausted- but imagine cute fluffy white frosting to top them off!
this recipe is very simple!! and fun to make! the original recipe i saw was a two layer round cake with white frosting. it was so cute cause it looked kinda plain and blah until you cut into it and see the awesome rainbow inside.
