Happy 1st Birthday!

Yesterday was my blog’s first birthday. A one year blogiversary.

Yes, I am a terrible blog mother (is that a thing?) and I forgot my blog’s first birthday. However, I made up for it by baking cupcakes.

Obviously, baking cupcakes makes up for everything.

The baking was quite an experience. I went to my friend’s new apartment and he teased me mercilessly about random, lovely things in life. Between the pomegranate wine, the Goo Goo Dolls music, and the half aprons we were wearing, it was nothing short of an adventure.

Cupcakes for 4

3. Add vanilla and butter. Mix.
4. Add flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in milk.
5. Pour equally into 4 muffin tin cup things.
