If these cupcakes taste even half as good as they smell right now as they’re baking in the oven, I’m done!
I say “I’m done” as though the purpose of making these divine little treats are in celebration of my birthday. Notsomuch! Not mine! ManFriend’s! His birthday was yesterday. But since yesterday we pulled the leave-while-he’s-in-bed, home-while-I’m-in-bed scenario that we seem to have perfected lately, we are extending the celebration to today.
Apparently I take his birthday as an excuse claim it as a day of celebration for ME (who am I?), and yesterday I actually honest-to-god justified a small chocolate shake and small fry from McDonald’s in my head as, “it’s ManFriend’s birthday!”
I don’t even know who I’m becoming. Other than soon to be a ten pound heavier version than myself. Oops.
Aaand in order to help succeed in that goal, I’m off with ManFriend in a few to a yummy dinner at a place we’ve had our eye on in Cambridge!
Happy Birthday to my wonderful ManFriend! Robbing the cradle since 2008.
