Love and cupcakes

Happy Valentines day to all my friends in
blogland. Hubby and I celebrated today and it was
sure nice to get away.

First we had lunch at Olive Garden,
{I had five cheese marinara over fettucini, salad,
breadsticks and bruschetta. Yumm! I even had enough left
over to bring home for another meal...yes I am one of those
people who bring their leftovers}

Later for dessert we went to Cake in a Cup
and purchased some of their delicious cupcakes.

Don't they look amazing??

Peanut butter chocolate

{chocolate cake frosted with fluffy peanut butter frosting and dipped in chopped reese's peanut butter cup candies}

Snickerdoodle {pink frosted}

{sweet and light in texture, this almond cake has a
cinnamon cream cheese filling and a fluffy meringue frosting}

Black bottom cupcake

{chocolate cake with a baked in chocolate-chip cheesecake
topping, a swirl of semi-sweet ganache, and a fresh raspberry

This photo is reality! I don't think I have ever
purchased cupcakes there and gotten them home
without something happening to them.

I was holding the box nicely on my lap and hubby said,

"the sun is shining on them and they are going to melt".

I didn't really think they would , but I moved the box to
the front of my legs out of the sun and guess what
happened next?? Yep...the box tipped over.

Many cupcakes went upside down and I was not
very happy because I had planned on taking pictures.
But we finally had a good laugh and his suggestion
was to tell everyone that our cupcakes can't seem to make
it home without fighting!! I thought that was pretty cute!
Sure looks like they were in a battle. lol.

I am very thankful to have a hubby that loves me.
Do we have a perfect marriage? Absolutely not...we have our good times and bad,
but I wouldn't trade him for all the tea in China...
now chocolate...possibly! just kidding.

Hi sweet Sandi,
Happy St. Valentine's Day to you too!

Gosh, your lunch sounds good. I bring things home as well, it's almost as good the second time around to me.

The cupcakes look so gooey good. I would pick the one with almond flavor, sounds amazing.

Enjoy the rest of your day. Loving my hearts here you made, they are beautiful and your packaging is beautiful... as you saw, I took photos it was so, so pretty! Merci!
