While we are on the subject of Twilight/New Moon, check out the video below. It's of Jimmy Fallon impersonating Robert Pattinson and talking about all the things that bother him. It's super duper funny! The one I posted is the most recent one when Robert Pattinson was on Jimmy Fallon promoting his new movie but if you go to you can view all the videos and they are stinkin hilarious!

What's the Big Deal?

Just kidding bloggers. I know the big deal.

But I went into the store the other day to purchase said DVD and it was like an explosion of Twilight/New Moon stuff! Including Barbie dolls! Holy cow! I can't even remember anything being as big as this franchise is...except maybe Harry Potter. But does Harry Potter have his own Barbie doll? I think not. KA-RAY-ZAY!

Cupcake Extravaganza Part 2

A new Spring Break/possible bi-weekly tradition has emerged! Big Top Cupcake making!!!

After work last week, I invaded Emily's house and we tried our luck at making a cupcake 25x bigger than the average cupcake!!!! Well, after mixing together the batter (2 cake mixes!!!) we let it bake for nearly an hour. During baking time, we played Canasta and watched Keeping Up Appearances. For those of you not familiar with Keeping Up Appearances, I suggest making yourself familiar with it ASAP. It is quite hilarious and Hyacinth will undoubtedly remind you of your grandma. Below are pictures from the event:

As you can see, we got a little carried away on the batter amount, but we took the fill line as more of a guideline than a rule hence the exploding cupcake halves. Aside from the unstable foundation and over-filled filling, the Big Top Cupcake was a success! And they weren't lying on the box when they say it's 25x bigger than a normal cupcake. They were lying, however, at the level of easiness they claimed it is to put together. But when all was said and done and cupcake pieces were nestled on a few scoops of mint chocolate chip ice cream, my tastebuds were basically in heaven. If Em's mom doesn't send the Big Top Cupcake bake wear to the D.I. before our next get together, I'm definitly up for another Big Top Cupcake.

P.S. Here's a visual reference for Keeping Up Appearances:

This Tank Don't Run on "E"

Last month there was a cupcake party/family home evening/police encounter an Emily's house. Below are pictures from said party:

Needless to say, a good time was had by all that evening. Em and I learned all sorts of fun things about Australia from Toddward and I even learned that there aren't any crocidiles in Peru! (Or was it alligators?) Oh of the two are absent from Peru. I also learned that Emily does not take kindly to Koala bears...especially the wet variety. For her benefit, I have posted a picture here:

After an evening full of awesomeness, I made my way home. It was about 12:30 in the morning (!) and I was literally about a mile from home when I got pulled over by the police!

Yep it two (TWO) officers made their way over to my car and asked where I had been at where I was going at such an early hour. I explained what I was doing etc., etc. as the officer was examining my car the entire time, as if he'd find something illegal. But he said that he saw me swerving and asked if I had a license handy. I handed him my license and the two officers went back to their car to access my information. I told them I was just tired for the reason for swerving---I didn't tell them that I was actually reaching for a cupcake in a plastic baggie when the swerving occured. All in all, I was let off the hook without a ticket (first time in history) and made my way home. Even after being hassled by the man, I still deem this evening a smashing success!
