my addiction could be worse.

First things first, I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to the victims and families in Aurora. What happened that night is horrible and breaks my heart...

Yesterday,  I had a busy day! I am going to my hometown tonight for my friend Sammy's birthday! I decided to make some cupcakes. I have been all over Pinterest looking up recipes. I found this fun one, Sparkling Strawberry Champagne Cupcakes. I have been trying to cook a little healthier lately, but I had to splurge on these! I haven't tried them yet, but Tony said they are amazing :).

Check out that Andre! Used to be my drink of choice back in college ;) I went the easy way (shhhhhhh) and used boxed cupcake mix!

Out of the oven! 

And frosted and decorated! I LOVE them. I gave myself a pat on the back for sure :). Maybe a career in cupcake making?! I have a few other ones I want to try. I was planning on buying some cupcakes from the place my friend Andrea got for the 50 Shades of Grey party. I decided (being the house{girlfriend} I am) I would make them on my own!

I didn't get to make it to Zumba yesterday because I was clearly busy! While the cupcakes were baking I made a new necklace as well! Okay... I didn't really make it, but more or less just put it together. 

I took a chain, a key charm, and pendant charm, and paper. I cut the paper to the size of the pendant and put them all on a chain... yes that's all I did!

And a close up...

Pretty cute for being so cheap and easy!

After I got the cupcakes all ready to go I got myself ready for my addiction... sushi. I am honestly obsessed with it. I went with Molly and Kayla and ate myself sick!

I decided that I need to only stick to one roll... I was WAY too full after this meal. But it was still so, so good.

After dinner, we went across to the street to a restaurant that has an AMAZING patio deck right on the river. It was PACKED, but I managed to swoop in and grab a great seat by one of the fires!

It was a good girls night out! I think I need to try and ween myself off of sushi... Nah! That's too hard! Like Molly told me... my addiction could be worse!

Headed home tonight for Sammy's birthday and then tomorrow we are all headed to one of my best friend's baby shower! I can't believe how fast these months have gone.

What is the ONE food you cannot live without!?!?
