Adulthood is Exciting

This week has been an exciting one! First, I was asked by the lovely and talented Sara over at Sweet Land of Chaos to guest blog for her and I just finished up my piece on "The Budget Bridesmaid" this morning. I will let you know when that goes up!

I was also asked by my bff Nicole over at The Fickle Nickle to do a guest cupcake blog in honor of the Fourth of July. I better get workin' on that! I am thinking blue velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting topped with a raspberry. A subtle yet delicious red, white, and blue treat. Stay tuned for that and make sure to enter Nicole's super awesome giveaway from Anne Taintor (yes, the calendar lady actually emailed Nicole directly!) Also, Brenda over at has an AWESOME giveaway of bakeware from Le Creuset!! It ends on 7/2 so enter before it's too late!

Third, and maybe the most exciting, is that my love and adoration of cupcakes allowed me to touch base with the wonderful Lyndsay over at Sweet Cuppin' Cakes Bakery and Cupcake Supplies. As you all know I'm fanatical about cupcakes and cupcake paraphanalia, and Lyns has got a TON of stuff over there. I am talking like hard-to-find-super-cute-spice-up-your-cupcake/party/holiday-supplies kind of stuff.

So the big news is: right here on Welcome to Adulthood one lucky winner will receive a cupcake windfall prize pack courtesy of Sweet Cuppin' Cakes Bakery and Cupcake Supplies.

Stay tuned for more details in the next few weeks!

Finally, in personal news, I adopted two rescue kittens this weekend on a whim. More on them to come, but for now, just look at how adorable they are. We named them Mungojerrie and Memory. They are brother and sister, 8 weeks old.


  1. Wow. That website has a lot of stuff! I am excited for the giveaway. I will keep checking back. The kitties are adorbs too.

  2. mungojerrie is, hands down, the BEST NAME EVER, for ANYTHING...I'm actually oddly jealous and mad I didn't come up with it myself!

  3. Those kitties are sooooo cute! Love the names!

  4. OMG the kitties are as delicious as the cupcakes sound! I am happy to hear adulthood is treating you kindly. Send some of that magic dust over my way will you!

  5. OMG, the kitties are adorable! I have an Appleface Siamese cat who looked just like your kitties when she was a baby--mostly white. Now she's very dark in her coloring! (I posted a pic of her on twitter earlier.) :) Can't wait to see what cupcake creation you come up with!

  6. Kitties are so sweet! A cupcake prize!! There is nothing better than that!

  7. Ah!! You made me want to run out and get a kitten #thenIrememberedallthelitterboxcleaning :-)
