Weekend Recap

We spent last weekend at my parent's. On Saturday, I left Rykert in front of the tv watching basketball, and went to see Hairspray at the Des Moines Civic Center. It was good, and sometimes it pays to wait until the last minute because we had excellent seats.

On Sunday, we prepared a birthday dinner for my dad. (Happy Birthday Dad!!) I fried onion strings. Which, are not healthy in the least, but I whole heartedly recommend. I made two spicy sauces to accompany them.

My niece's birthday is coming up, so I played around with a cupcake idea.

Popcorn Cupcakes 03

Popcorn! I think they are cute, but will definitely put some additional work into the wrapper and add a label. But, whoa, were they labor intensive. I had to call in Rykert for assistance.

We also got to see my cousin Julia, who is one tough little cookie.

We signed casts.

And Nola got to wrestle with Yogi, my sister's dog. She's still exhausted.

Sweet photos. That's a whole lot of casts. They both look like strong, determined, optimistic ladies though. :)

Your cupcakes are amazing! Art! I want more details on how you did this... is the popcorn real?
