Hello my dear blogland friends! I am just giving a super quick update here tonight as I am posting from work on break :) I would first like to recognize I have been very neglectful in my postings! I have been busy with life and all that it has thrown at me...

I cannot believe the holiday season is fast approaching! I LOVE Christmas so much! I will definately focus this post more on Halloween as it is right round the corner. Alas, I am working a day shift-but it's not all that bad! I am dressing up as are all my dear workmates! Should be fun! Always brightens our patients spirits :) While out at Home Sense last week, Mr. Cupcake and I spotted one of the scariest (if not THE scariest) decoration/props ever:

Isnt it FREAKY?! If I came trick or treating as a child to the house with this holding candy, I think I would have been scarred for life! That's an expensive scare at $199.99!! OUCH!

My dear friend and I are heading to the States on Wednesday for some shopping and I have a fantastic list ready and waiting...I am so excited! Loads of home decor goodies on the list :) I only wish there was an Anthropologie where we are headed. Le sigh.

Lastly, I PROMISE to post a sneak peek at my guest room in the next few days...even if it needs alot of finishing touches. I have a question about hardware...a poll is in order if you will...
Stay tuned! Hope you all have a fantastic evening!

Loads of love,

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgivng! Mr C and I are in our home for our first Thanksgiving together alone! We have so much to be thankful for. Our families and friends. Our first home that we cannot believe we have been in for almost a year! We are thankful for our new addition: Charlie cat, whom we have affectionately come to call Chiggles or Chiggs. Not too sure where that came from but Charlie is Thankful for us, he told me :)
I am ever thankful to have a job I enjoy (on the good days ;) and get to care for people they way I do.

I hope you are all truly happy and healthy this Thanksgiving!!

Mr C and I are not cooking a dinner this year :( But we do get leftovers Monday!

Blessings and love,

Big BANG Theory

Long overdue post I am afraid! Been busy around Casa Cupcake! I had a lovely day yesterday getting my hair done and I am in love with it. I decided to revisit and rock the Bangs again. Funny tho, I am painting with my new favorite paint color Balmy Seas by Behr and oops! A few turquoise streaks appeared! Mr C so lovingly noticed.

So here is some inspiration in love love....
