So I am sure everyone has heard of this new fab with cupcakes. There are so many cupcakes shows on TV right now like D.C. Cupcakes and cupcake wars, and I love to watch them.  On the shows they make these specailty cupcakes in all different flavors with amazing decorations.  Everytime I watch them make these delicous cupcakes it makes me want to go out and find a little cupcake bakery and buy a dozen of them.  So you are probably wondering why I am telling you how obsessed I am with cupcakes, well it is to tell you a little story.  This last week I went to Arlington, Texas to see my mom and it just happened to be close to my birthday which is this week on thursday by the way, just in case you want to send me a little something. 

Well while I was visiting we had this bright idea to have a birthday party for me and my brother, who is my twin, we thought it would be fun to invite and see all of my family that lives in the area. So two nights before the party my mom and I are sitting at her house talking about what we are going to do for our birthday celebration and being as brilliant as I am, I tell her we should make cupcakes!  At nine o'clock at night me and mom go to walmart and buy ingrediants to make three different types of cupcakes. Of course we are not going to make everything from scratch, so we buy three different cake mixes, strawberry, lemon and butter pecan.  Then we decide to make the icing home made for each cupcake.  The first was a cream cheese icing that we put with the butter pecan, the second was a lemon zest cream cheese icing that of course went with the lemon cupcake and the third was a strawberry whipped cream made with fresh strawberries that went with the strawberry cupcake.

That night we ended up just making the butter pecan cupcakes because it was so late.  The next day me, my mom and my mawmaw slaved all day in the kitchen making the other two cupcakes along with their icings.  We ended up making six dozen cupcakes in all.  The party that night was alot of fun, we invited all of my aunts, uncles and cousins but everyone was so busy that only one of my uncles and his wife were able to show up, along with my mawmaw and pawpaw, my mom, dad me and my brother.  So we had a ton of cupcakes left over.  It was so much fun seeing my family enjoy the cupcakes we made and  I will always have this wonderful memory of spending time with my beautiful momma and my loving mawmaw. And of course I will never forget how delicious all of the differnt cupcakes were.

My First Time.....Blogging

So I have never been a great writer/journaler, is that even a word?? Anyways, I thought I would surprise myself and start.  My mom has a blog and I love reading it, and it makes me feel good to think that people would want to read about things that I have to say.  My husband just started medical school two weeks ago, and it has been a difficult but amazing life change for the both of us to get used to.  I think it will be good to write my personal thoughts about what it is like to be a spouse of a medical student, as well as the hardships and joys of our everyday life together.  So far medical school has been very different than Blake's undergraduate which I knew it would be, but it is WAYYY different.  He studies at the school until eleven o'clock every night and he leaves the house at seven thirty every morning.  I am not complaining, I know how important it is for him to study and I would rather him study his butt off and be in a better mood than to be at home and be stressed out all the time.  The past week, my lesson was learning how to be by myself, which if you knew me you would know that I do not enjoy that at all.  I am the type of person that needs people, I love people and  I want people to love me.  But I do think it is beneficial for me to learn to be on my own, because for the next four years it is going to happen alot! I know it sounds like I am not happy with our situation, but I am.  I am just trying to get used to change, and it is going to take a while....
