cupcakes are pretty much a staple around our house. we love discovering new bakeries and trying creative flavors. but our very favorite cupcakes are those we make in our very own kitchen. homemade treats are made infinitely better solely because the bakers (us) hold ultimate control over the frosting to cake ratio, which we agree should be at least two to one.
this weekend we spotted a yummy recipe over on bakerella‘s blog and just had to give it a try. while our pictures may not be quite as pretty as her professional ones, we can guarantee the finished product was 100% just as delicious.
without further ado, oreo cupcakes in all their frosted glory… (and some pretty plates and stands to put them on).

oh august, where did you come from? and for that matter, where did the first half of the year go? we’ve blinked and it’s already time to start
preparing planning for our annual halloween party and the rest of the holiday season.
even though it is still nearly 100 degrees here every single day, we can’t help dreaming of brisk autumn days and with it a little bit of fall decor. here are some things we’re craving for fall.
what are you most excited about this time of year?

hello friends. today we thought we would take you on a tour of a piece of our home. we can’t wait to share all our favorite things with you as we (slowly) finish decorating each room. behind door number one we have: her home office.
i find that a neat and organized area is much more conductive to creativity. when my environment is in order, it allows my mind to work more freely. so first i majorly decluttered, then i decorated! i saw the cork board squares (above my desk) at staples and immediately envisioned them hung together to create an inspiration/ mood board, which i fully plan on changing up weekly. right now i like how it’s purple and playful and makes me smile.
this is my office. where i think, work, write, and dream. i hope you like my little space.
what keeps you calm and focused?
