For my last week, I've been visiting lots of my favorite places (notice almost all of them revolve around food) and seeing my favorite people. Until last night, I did really well staying upbeat and excited. I have been a little down today- mostly just sad to be leaving the place that has been my home for five years. I will spare you the sentimental babble that is filling my head at the moment, just know it is a very bittersweet transition.
Baked and Wired. I know everyone and their mother knows about Georgetown Cupcake, but seriously, do me a favor and do a taste test. Do a wallet test. See the size of these bad boys? Roughly twice the size of Georgetown Cupcakes- and they are the same price. Plus, in my humble opinion, these win the taste test hands down. Don't believe me? Well, when the White House had to order dessert for President Obama's birthday, guess where they went? I'll tell you this much, it wasn't Georgetown Cupcake. I probably have way too strong of opinions on this matter, but as a self-proclaimed cupcake lover, I will tell anyone that asks, that Baked and Wired is the way to go. My usual go to is Karen's Birthday Cake. It's an amazing chocolate cupcake with vanilla cream cheese frosting. Simple. Decadent. An amazing piece of heaven. So I got two of those to go (one for bf who is also a huge fan, and one for me to have on Saturday in the middle of Hurricane Irene- more on that later). At the store, I decided to try the Chai cupcake. It was fantastic. A tiny bit better than mine- but only because it's huge. I'm very humble, I know :).
Saturday, I spent the day inside. We were super lucky in that we missed the worst of the storm. We never lost power and had no flooding because we are in high ground. Other than some whistling due to the wind, my first hurricane experience was downright pleasant. (On a more somber note, my thoughts and love go out to those who are still suffering or who lost their homes or loved ones.)
