Cupcakes & Nausea

This past Friday we did not think we had a lot going on, but Laura and I seem to always find ourselves with something to do. Honestly, Friday was a kind of laid-back day and didn’t have a ton of stuff to do at work, so I came home pretty excited about the events that were about to unfold before us. After we surprised Laura’s mom with her “possible” birthday present (I will discuss this at a later date) we called Terri, our friend I met a couple of summer’s ago in Dr. Gao’s Maymester class at KSU. Let me set up Terri in my story. She is quite a character and I think that is why we love her so much. She is not only a wonderful friend, but she is so much fun, very nice and loves two things... movies & cupcakes.We called Terri to come over and hang out and she was unsure about this because it was so last minute.
Side note: Unfortunately, I left my cell phone at home on Friday, making me feel “impotent and out-of-control!”

(10 points if you can guess what movie this is from!)

To make a very long story short, I had about six voice mails on my phone when I finally got home at 5pm, and as you may have guessed, one was from Terri. She was curious as to if we were busy and wanted to know if we wanted to hang out. Hence, me calling her and asking her to come play with us! She was hesitant because, because it was already 6:30pm!

“Come on Terri, it’ll be fun!” I said.

“Oh, I don’t know, I was gonna make some cupcakes.”

“Okay great! Come over and make them here!”

Terri, agreed, but very hesitant because I have a feeling she doesn’t like giving her secret recipes out! So, fast forward, Terri comes over at about 7:45 PM and we begin the process of cup cake making. Laura, starting feeling nauseated for some odd reason, oh yeah, she’s pregnant!

“I think I am gonna go lay down,” said Laura. “I don’t feel good.”

Laura lays down on the couch and watches the time delayed opening ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics. Laura loves watching the Olympics. Who knew?!

So, as Terri cracks eggs and pours milk and I show her where the bowls are to do all of the fun things it takes to make perfect cupcakes. This is the extent of my cooking and/or culinary abilities!

After they came out of the oven, looking perfect I might add... I ate a couple to test and make sure they were okay for others to consume. Oh, they were good... trust me... I ate a total of probably eight when all was said and done.

Although, I did a pretty good job at applying said sprinkles. Laura and I may have spinkles in the cracks of our kitchen table for about the next 30 years. Hint: Don't buy party favors that can get stunk in between couch cusions. You may find them many, many years from when you first used them. But, that is a story for another day.

To make a long story short, the cup cakes came out perfect and tasting ever-so scrumptious.

Now, if you need to take a breather because this BLOG is so freakin' exciting I will totally understand. LOL! Until next time... enjoy your week.

Hahahahahahaha!! You made my day! Holy cow! I'm like famous now! Hahahahaha! At first, when I looked at the title, I thought, "oh no! they got sick from the cupcakes!" Then after I read it, I couldn't stop laughing. I'm just about excited as you were when you were writing this :-)

Btw, I can't figure out the movie quote :-/

You need to warn me when a camera's being involved. I look like a booger. You look nice though! :-)

Ewww! Boogers and cupcakes should never be in the same story. LOL! However, I'm sure that has nothing to do with why Laura was sick. Billie
