red velvet bread pudding

so, i began a new diet yesterday. i was doing well about 2 hours into it and then i started craving something sweet. i stuck to my diet all day but as soon as i got home i caved!

i had never made any form of bread pudding before and didn't have any bread so i decided to improvise with what i had. i used a recipe from cooks.com and sort of just made it up as i went. the end result was just what i had hoped for; chocolaty, light and the perfect pudding holding it all together. i made sure to bring some to work to share and hopefully decrease my chances of cheating on my diet again.

my adorable dessert plates are from urban outfitters (http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/). they always have the cutest dishware with a little edge to them.

Little Cupcake, Big Adventure

i have been thinking about starting a blog for a long time now but have always found some reason to not get it up and running, well, no more excuses.

there is no time like the present, so here goes nothing.

i wanted to start a blog to share things i love, adventures i partake in and all of life's little surprises. my daily life is nothing too exciting. i am just your typical twenty-something working and trying to bring my dreams to life. i have been blessed with so many wonderful people in my life that share in my adventures, don't know what i would do without you all!

i try to make everyday an adventure.....some days are more exciting than others. i am about to embark on one of my most exciting adventures yet. on april 13th i will be travelling to china with my mom and dad to visit my little brother, davis. i want to be able to share my adventure with all my friends and family and i thought this might be the perfect place.

so, cheers to many more posts and daily adventures :) xo cbe
