Shoo, this was a busy weekend…! And I met 3 twitter people too!!

On FRIDAY I drove 300m down the road to pick up cupcakes from @Angelsmind. She is also known as The Cupcake Lady…and had advertised a Valentines Cupcake Special which I thought I would try :)

The pics looked delicious, and there has been SO much hype around twitter about how fabulous these cupcakes are! Now, don’t get me wrong here… but i honestly thought to myself “How great can these cupcakes be? People *have* to say they are great… imagine if people said – i tried Angels cupcakes and they were ok – …” So anyway… on Friday night I had my first much anticipated cupcake… not expecting TOO much – altho they did look absolutely fabulous!! And WOW was I blown away!! It was seriously, the BEST DAMN CUPCAKE I EVER DID EAT! – seriously! ah-may-zzzzzing!!

There were 4 in the box:

2 x secret-centre strawberry stuffed chocolate cupcakes, iced with uber decadent chocolate fudge icing and decorated with heart-shaped “sprinkles”.

2 x vanilla, secret-centre, strawberry cheesecake cupcakes- decorated with cream cheese icing and heart shaped “sprinkles”!

(picture from http://www.angelscupcakes.co.za/)

I was suprised at myself that my favourite of the 2 was the vanilla strawberry one, and not the chocolate :p Seriously – absolutely divine – if you haven’t had Angel’s cupcakes yet – do yourself a favour!!

SATURDAY morning I went for my horse riding lesson, which was awesome – despite the sweltering heat!! :) Then I rushed off to edenvale for various bits and bobs…

SUNDAY we woke up to a scheduled power outage :( I was hoping our little suburb would be spared, but no… Anyway, we had a photoshoot with Jeanette at 4:30, and obviously, no power means no hairdryer etc…!

So, we did some grocery shopping etc and got home at about midday and I needed to decide if I should drive all the way to Centurion to my mom to do my hair… or what. Then, I was hit my a brainwave – even tho i was a little embarrased to do anything about it!! I know @MeeAParkins lives down the road from me, in Midrand. I have never met her tho… :p so, I sucked it up, and asked her if she would think I was incredibly rude if I invaded her house for a bit and did my hair there – coz she was lucky enough to have power!! Gulp! :) She was very accomodating and didn’t seem to mind at all!! :)

Phew – lifesaver!! Thank you MeeA!!!

Then, off to our photoshoot!! :)

It was a strange feeling to do all the posing, and looking this way, and that way… hehe. AND, Peter, who is normally SUCH a chatterbox and never shuts up, was struck by the “shy-stick” and barely said a word!! – silly boy!

Jeanette was great :) and the photos are GORGEOUS!!!! We had some taken inside the ruin, and some taken outside in the LOOOOOOOONG veld grass… my favourite are the ones outside – the colours and light is beautiful – and I think we made good clothing choices… it looks awesome!!

These two pics are my favourite:

So – time for another #FontFriday methinks :)

We all know it is the International Day of Luuuurve this weekend right…? I couldn’t help myself and I had to do a Luuuurve Font this Friday :) But this font is just so cute and it reminds me of the Adrian Mole Books… gosh, I loved those books, they were funny hey!?
