i had wednesday off and i couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.
first thing in the morning i met mom and we walked up to the highlands to the wooden spoon cafe and bakery. my mom was raving about their breakfast sandwiches and i had to try one for my self. it was absolutely heavenly! i love this little bakery. if you are in the neighborhood be sure to check it out. http://woodenspooncafeandbakery.blogspot.com/
lovely little breakfast sandwich
after our little breakfast we walked home and i headed to the grocery store. collin and i had planned to have a little cinco de mayo party. i got so distracted by the beautiful flowers when i first walked in the store that i forgot half of the things on my list and had to go back later that evening.........
my sunny little flowers
amazingly enough i was able to focus enough at the store to pick up all of the ingredients i needed to try out a new cupcake recipe. i had wanted to make coconut cream pie, my favorite, but after doing a lot of research i concluded that it would be a two day process (letting the pie chill over night) and i am way to impatient for that. instead of pie i decided to make coconut cupcakes and i couldn't be happier with the results. i used this recipe and loved it!
my lovely little cupcakes, big hit at the cinco de mayo celebration :)
hope you had a wonderful week and happy early mothers day!!!
