Day 21


{Salted Carmel Mocha Cupcakes}

This could be the best thing you have ever bitten into...prepare to be blown away! :)
I have really been enjoying Starbucks salted carmel mocha drinks lately and then when I found this cupcake recipe, I had to make them! Wow, are they AMAZING!!
Here is a link to the blog where you can find this recipe. She also has a salted carmel coffee drink recipe that tastes almost exactly like the Starbucks drink!

Sorry this is so late!! I've been gone all day. 
This is my friend, Madeleine, playing at her solo piano recital that I had the privilege to attend today. She is an amazingly gifted piano player and did a flawless job! :)

Day 1

Happy 2012!!
Let the photo challenge begin!!
I'm going to try my very best to take, edit, and post a photo here each day for the whole year of 2012.
I know that there's going to be some fun and exciting pictures as our family goes different places this year, but there's also going to be some pretty boring ones on those days where I just need to take a quick picture of something in my house to get it done. ;) But bear with me, and hopefully you will be seeing some neat things. :)
So to start off the challenge in 2012, here's a picture of 2012.


There will be a good mix of posed pictures and candid shots from events that take place in my life.
Thanks for reading this first of many posts to come! :)
Happy New Year!

Lauren
