I’ll Give You One Guess

You know those days where you have something to do and you figure, ahhh alright, I’ll be back in a few hours? No big deal, so you don’t worry about leaving the outside lights on or making sure your cat’s food bowl is filled.

Yep, I had one of those days today. But not in a bad way, by any means! In fact, it was quite a fun day, filled with good food and great family.


Jay’s cousin just graduated from high school, so we headed over there this afternoon for his graduation party. Immediately upon our arrival, we were greeted with rainy weather, snacks and beer. I’ll take the latter over the rain any day.


You see that pile of cauliflower there? Yep…I dominated that. Halleluiah for being the only one at the table who liked the fluffy white florets. Mmmm mmmmm.


Luckily, we nabbed a spot under a tent, so our little group had a great time out of the rain, chatting, cracking jokes, arguing about golf handicaps, and admiring “the sweater.”


Yes, please take note of the sweater that Mike here is wearing. Since it was a little chillier than most of us anticipated, extra warm clothing was provided for the unprepared. While the sweater made its way to a few people, I believe that Mike definitely wore it best, so I had to be sure to nab a picture of him and his fiancé, Denise. He was actually quite excited to make his “first appearance on the blog,” even though I had to remind him that this already happened. Winking smile

It’s always so fun to be around good company like Sarah & Jeff, too.


Eventually, dinner was served…and I was not one to be shy!


I loaded my plate up with goods and ate every single thing you see here, minus the chicken tender-thingy. It got a little cold by the time I got to the food.


A couple more hours of chatting and laughing passed by, and I was then presented with a new adult beverage. I know there was vodka and cranberry juice involved…and I know it was tasty.


BUT…it was not quite as tasty as the dessert that was soon to follow!


I’ll give you one guess as to who made the cupcakes…

Her name starts with a “C” and it rhymes with “ourtney.” Winking smile


I was honored to be asked to make the cupcakes for today’s graduation party, and they appeared to be a pretty big hit. In addition to a special batch of my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes,


I also made a mix of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream; the ones with the white frosting even had a little surprise inside.


Red raspberry filling.


I was pretty pleased with the way they came out. So much so, in fact, that I went back for a second one. Hey, don’t judge…I’m the baker. Winking smile


Overall, it was a great day, but now I’m actually feeling pretty pooped, so it’s gonna be bedtime for this gal pretty soon.

Before signing off for the night, I have two things…

First, I’d just like to say a big HELLO & WELCOME to all of the new readers who stopped by today! I’m so glad that you did, and hope to continue to see you stick around. I promise, we have fun around here. Smile

And second, congratulations to the winner of my Belgian Chocolates Giveaway

    Hi, I’m a new reader who saw your guest post on Peanut Butter Fingers! The graduation cupcakes are so cute, how did you make the caps? I want to try it out sometime!

    • Courtney says

      Hi Laura!
      The grad caps were actually just plastic…can’t take credit for those. 😉

      Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again :)

    Another amazing hair day! I am “patiently” waiting for you to do a hair post. I think your hair always looks so smooth and pretty. I would love to know what products you use and the steps you take to style your hair.

    • Courtney says

      Haha, thanks Brenda!

      I’ve kind of been avoiding the topic only because I really don’t have much to offer in terms of advice! But I promise, I’ll have something this week 😀

    Sounds like fun! I just had to stop by and say that those cupcakes look so cute and delicious! Definitely one of the cutest I’ve seen yet! Good job!

    • Courtney says

      Thanks! I didn’t take any classes, although I am looking into a decorating one. As for fillings and such, I just began experimenting with different flavor combinations that I thought I would like. Experimenting is fun :)

    You know when you are a kid, and you think you can reach inside the T.V and grab out an object? Well I wanted to reach inside my computer screen and grab one of your cupcakes…they looked amazing!!

    Hi! Love the raspberry filling idea so much I’m using it this Friday as part of my surprise blue cupcakes for a family dinner! Were having another baby boy and want to surprise everyone with the news! Did you use raspberry jam or pie filling? Thanks Colleen :)
