A Weekend Away with Me Means...

I have the wonderful opportunity to go away this weekend with some great Homeschool Moms, some I know really well and others I'm just getting to know.  (I can NOT tell you how excited I am!) None of these women have spent 24/7 with me so I thought it best to give them an idea of what to expect. I'm always on my best behavior when I'm away from home (just like I've trained my boys to be) but you never know what can happen when you put a bunch of women together, especially those of us who spend all day, every day with our offspring. I e-mailed them an open letter that said this...
Dear friends (who are brave enough to spend 24/7 with me this weekend), here's a few things I thought you should know because I *hearts* you!

1) I'm prone to random dancing & singing which may occur at any time of the day or night.
2) My dancing skills FAR outweigh my singing abilities.
3) If you choose to approach me in the a.m. before I've had a cup of coffee, you are doing so at your own risk. (Took my Mom 20 years to figure this one out.)
4) I do not like to have my underthings frozen. (This goes back to middle school sleepovers & people touching my stuff without asking.)
5) I require any photos/videos taken of which I'm a part of, to be pre-approved & notarized by me before posting on any website.
6) My inner toddler comes out when I'm overly tired, hungry or hot but once I've been fed, cooled off or had a nap I'm good as new.
7) I take more than 20 minutes to get ready. It's not vanity, it's just me not wanting to scare you or the general population.
8) I laugh in awkward situations. It's not meant to be cruel, it's just how I'm wired. So if you hurt yourself, I'll be the first in line with the band aids but I'll be giggling the entire time.
9) While I enjoy a good practical joke now & then, I do not enjoy ANY that involve spiders or owls. (real or fake btw)
10) I'm very competitive. VERY. I play to win no matter the game. I don't know if I can stress this enough. (Dutch Blitz is treated like a swear word in our family, oh-kay?) This is such a problem that I'm not allowed to play games with most members of my family. When I am granted permission, it's with restrictions (for me) & supervision (for me).
Did I mention how much I *hearts* you?!  ^___^ 
(^ all tongue in cheek of course, mostly, maybe...)

BLOG TOUR + BAKING WITH ROTH & ZAYNE: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes! This is my stop on the Stone Cold Touch tour and you're in for a treat because Roth and Zayne stopped by to make cupcakes for Layla. More on that in a minute. 

 ~ About the Book ~
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what …

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Thanks for stopping by, there be cupcakes here today! *whispers* Really creepy cupcakes.
If you have followed this blog or my Instagram or Pinterest board for any length of time, you've probably seen some of the bookish cupcake creations I've made over the past few years. Book inspired cupcakes, characters as cupcake flavors, release party cupcakes, that sort of thing.Making cupcakes for people makes me happy. 
However, of all the different kinds of cupcakes I have been asked to make, today's definitely take the cake--or the cupcakes--or the finger.  Wait. What?  Stay with me, I'll explain. 
But first...
