Home Sweet Home...

What a wonderful weekend Jessica and I had visiting my sister, Sarah and her husband Mike. We always have the best of times together, and it really is one of my favorite places to be because I come home feeling so rested.

This visit was filled with let's just say some really yummy things...

This is exactly what we did... got cupcakes, gave thanks, and boy were we blessed!

How could you not be with three inches of CHOCOLATE icing! This is a bakery in downtown Nashville that only sells cupcakes. How fun is that? We couldn't decide on just one so we got 8. That was so we could take some home to share with Mike of course.

Here is Sarah and Jessica with their "Miss Princess" cupcakes. White cake with real strawberries and butter cream icing...

The rest of the weekend was filled with shopping for Jessica and the new baby, going to see a performance of The Sound of Music at the school where Mike teaches, lots of laughing and coming up with a name for Sarah and Mike's new cat. They finally decided upon Georgia. She just showed up one morning last week and has been there since. I say she has found a really good home.

Sarah had this gift waiting for me...

Thanks again Sarah for the gift (they look great in my dining room!) and for the memories that were made this weekend. When you come home at Christmas, bring some cupcakes!


  1. What a wonderful weekend!!!!! I'm SO jealous I don't have a sister...but hey...at least I can live the experience through you!!!

    I'm glad you are home..safe, sound...and rested!! :-)

  2. I'm so glad you had such a refreshing weekend! The pictures look like it was ton of fun. Your sis is beginning to really look pregnant, I'd say; she's definitely got the glow. Of course, you and Jessica are glowing, too. :)

  3. You all are BEAUTIFUL!

    And I love the gift that was waiting for you!


  4. I'll get some more cupcakes but I can't guarantee that they will make it across the state line--that is, with Mike in the car!

    Miss you already!

  5. Sisters are the best. I just love those pictures. The cupcakes are looking pretty wonderful too!

  6. Looks like ya'll had a great weekend! I love your pitcher and plate. SO cute!

  7. I am telling you... those cupcakes look divine! Chocolate is one of those awesome blessings! ;)

  8. Oh, sisterly fun! Love the cupcakes! (we're making the tiles tomorrow, I'll let you know how it goes!)

  9. Wow, I have never seen such yummy looking cupcakes!!!
    The three of you are beautiful, I am so glad that you were able to spend time with and encourage your sister.
    I also love the gift that she gave you!
    I am sure Steve and the boys are glad for you to be home.

  10. Those cupcakes look amazing! Yum!!! There is no such thing as too much frosting.

    The picture of you with your sister and daughter is just beautiful! You all look so similar.... so pretty!

    Sounds like one awesome weekend.... so glad you had fun together!!!

  13. As usual, it looks like you guys had a wonderful time..and that gift your sister gave you is beautiful!

    You are blessed to have a sister.

  14. By the way, Christy, I think one time you mentioned all that extra space at the end of a post and wondered how to get rid of it. I'm no expert at all! But I've found that if I load a bunch of pictures, especially if I load them in a certain order and then move them around, I end up with lots of extra space at the end, too. Before you post, if you simply get to the end of your writing and pictures, and then push the delete button for a while (as long as it takes), that can take up the slack and eliminate that extra space. Somebody else probably knows way better than I how it happens and what to do about it...I'm sure it has to do with HTML stuff which I am clueless about it. But just wanted to pass along what works for me. :)

  15. How fun!! Please don't post anymore cupcake pictures as I'm trying to shed pounds!!! Lol...I'm really hungry for cupcakes with frosting bigger than the actual cup of cake!
    Glad you made some awesome memories this weekend! You all 3 are so beautiful!

  16. I stumbled on your blog several months ago then didn't know how to find it again. :) Love all of your photos. And the post about the tricycle is so sweet!

  17. You all are so beautiful- it sounds like a perfect holiday (you know, vacation)!

  18. I love that brown transferware!! I collect it, too. This is beautiful!!
