What do you think?

I recently found this duvet cover and sham set. I like it! But now, I'm going to take a poll to see who else likes it. I guess I had better tell people about my blog before I expect a response. So, let me know what you think.

The Uniblogger

My husband took this picture of me a few weeks ago when I was cold. I was drinking some tea and had pulled my hood up for a little extra warmth. He lovingly refers to me as the UNIBLOGGER in this photo. To share his twisted humor and because I enjoyed a few laughs about it too, I thought I would share my new nickname and nemesis with all of you.

Why Cupcakes in Chicago?

Cupcakes happen to be some of my favorite things to bake. I love baking. It is some sort of a strange stress release for me. Really, I just think that it is so different than my day job that it feels incredibly refreshing to do something different. I'm up for trying new recipes. Lately, I've made chocolate with salted carmel frosting and coconut cupcakes with coconut cream cheese frosting, topped with fresh and toasted coconut. I dream that someday I can open a bakery. I had a friend say recently that she wanted to open a spa. I'll indulge all the customers with cupcakes and help them to gain the weight back that they just shed in their seaweed wrap!
Welcome to my random blog where I do promise to talk about more than just cupcakes and Chicago!
