The Adventures of Kate and Nikki (and why today totally rocked!)

So, in case you couldn't tell by the title because you're either a moron or blind, in which case I can't imagine how you'd be reading this anyway but whatevs - today totally rocked.

I mean, I knew it was going to be pretty amazing since I was going to lunch with the super-duper, completely amazing Kate, but it got epic fast. We ate at On the Border and indulged in dessert; afterwards we decided to head to Michaels. I thought Kate needed to pick something up for class.. it turns out she just wanted to tempt me with more adorable silly bandz.

Yeah, I said silly bandz. Deal with it.

Anyway, she had given me this adorable opaque yellow sheep at the restaurant and at Michaels we ended up buying a dessert pack, a dino pack, and a farm animal pack. Yeah, we went a little nuts. I ended up going from no silly bandz to this: awesome collection of uber-cute dinosaurs, sweet treats, and fluffy animals! This is the effect Kate has on me. She seriously takes my cuteness to the next level.

Michaels also had some fab stuff on sale including some mustard colored gardening gloves, a rubber band ball, this eraser...
and this California Condor...
(No, it's not a vulture.. don't even ask.)

So, by the time I dropped Kate off at her class, I was beyond eccstatic. What I didn't know was that things were about to get even better! (I know you're asking how could they, but I'm serious here, they do)
This bag was waiting for me when I got home. Seriously. It was waiting for me in all of its gorgeousness.

Inside were these two adorable little boxes filled with (what else?) cupcakes!

I am telling you right now that Crumbs cupcakes are my one true vice. They’re like uncut cocaine, pure and perfect. I swear their frosting is like God’s gift to mankind – this is why there’s war and famine, something had to balance out all that frosting-y goodness. And damn were they good. I mean, DAMN.

Oh, and apparently, according to this menu at least, they make cupcakes the size of your head.
I may have just died and gone to heaven.

And then (oh yes, there's more) I got a package in the mail from a wonderful friend of mine..

She made me a hat. A georgeous, perfect, adorable hat that fits me perfectly and that I never ever want to take off. Tomorrow I'm going to text her and tell her how wonderful she is. :)

So kids, the moral of the story is that I know some truly unique, truly amazing people who make my life so rich and so worth it. I know I couldn't get through a day without them and I wouldn't want to try. I love you guys.

Tomorrow and Saturday should be just as epic... again, I'll keep you posted.

  1. Silly, over-observant NorNor thought there was a blue ribbon dangling down the back of the knitted hat (which is super fab!) because of whatever was behind you. So in the first picture of The Hat, you look kind of like a post-modern fairy princess. Win!
