Knit night cupcakes
Finally, I have a moment to sit down and catch my breath.
Life has felt a bit chaotic lately. Shortly before launching the ebook–which was one month ago today!–I began a certificate program that has not only changed my perspective on nutrition, but it has reminded me what life is like to be a student again. Lectures and readings and assignments, oh my!
Mind you, this time around I also have to keep up with a full-time job, housework and a husband. On top of that, we have been doing some pretty major renovations on my house for the last two months, so I am essentially sequestered to the basement with my cats. Thankfully though, the renovations do not affect my kitchen–I just have to walk through a maze of drop sheets, drywall and tools to get to it.
Over the last few weeks, I also found time to help organize a special party for my dear friend Emily. You see, she’s getting married in a few short weeks. Being the non-traditional bride that she is, she insisted on not having any bridal showers. So, instead, a few of us decided to throw a surprise karaoke party in her honour with a large group of friends (boys included).
For the decor and food, we incorporated a few of her favourite things, which included candy, knitting, musicals, and hummus.
This was a fantastic opportunity to try out something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now.
These pretty gems were a time-consuming project, but they were well worth it. Everyone at the party raved about them. Check out this post for a video of the Martha Stewart Show where Lolo demonstates how to make them.
