Cupcakes, or How I Gained 10 Lbs Today

This pregnancy I have had a major sweet tooth.  I like me some salty things, but man, the sweets just hit the spot!  Usually our trips to the grocery store end up with donuts, cookies, brownie mix, or ice cream going in the cart.  Today cake mixes were $1 and frosting was on sale as well, so that is what we made.  Yum.  Chocolate fudge cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, and topped with candy corn we got on a whim at Target yesterday. 

I gave Ingrid a little bowl of frosting and some candy corn and let her at it.

Inevitably she just licked the knife and started to eat the cupcake.

A couple did get decorated, though.  This one by her:

This one by me:

Can I just say it one more time--YUM.  I don't know why I even have to take the stupid glucose test in a couple weeks--I eat so much sugar that this baby and I would be in a coma if I were diabetic...

So fun! I'm totally going to try cupcakes soon. Adeline 'helps' me all the time in the kitchen, and I think she'd get a kick out of that.

I have a pretty hardcore sweet tooth in general, and being pregnant just magnified it. My husband learned very quickly to stop saying "The is gone ALREADY?!" lest he subject himself to a hormonal outburst from me.

Incidentally, you don't HAVE to take the test. With Adeline, I just didn't show up for it. They asked me about it once, and then dropped it. You can opt out of anything.
