Sneak preview.

With the days flying by, i thought I'd pop on with a little sneaky preview of the cupcakes in their dresses.
Only 3 days to go now, things are really getting exciting here in the cupcake house. I'm off to get some of the food tonight and the rest tomorrow for our big wedding garden party on Saturday and am bursting to start making cakes lol
I'll leave you now so much to do, busy, busy, busy but not stressed (yet! lol).
With love x

Fairy magic

Today i was away with the fairies and Mrs Pixieland herself Clarie we went off over to Sevenoaks for the old rectory sale, got there at just 4 mins before opening and it was a bit of a free for all lol crazed women looking for that perfect vintage find.
Anyway i didn't seem to notice any clashes of elbows and just got on with looking. Coming away with a couple of nice baskets, china Stanley dog, a veg and fruit book and lovely old broader fork for Mr cupcakes, he was a happy bunny when he spotted this in our garden :o)
I really wanted to bring home some gorgeous painted farmhouse chairs but was very good and left them for another time. There was also some beautiful dressers to but I'll wait until the next fair when we've got more money saved, i know my lovely Mummy, Daddy and Granny cupcakes is giving us money for a wedding present just for this occasion. I'm really looking forward to going out and finding something just right for our house. I know there will be something waiting for us soon.

Thanks for a lovely morning Clarie it was great catching up, see you on Saturday sweetie x

So with the whole like this it was fabulous and i even grabbed half an hour sitting in the sunshine this afternoon before collecting the cupcakes from playgroup and school.

Hope you've all had a nice day.
See yo all soon, this time next week I'll be Mrs Short and preparing for our wedding reception the next day yeay! I could burst with excitement lol

With love,

Playing with cupcakes

Now with only just over a week to go before Mr cupcakes makes domestic wifely goddess of me lol
I've been playing lots of different cupcake flavours, these are my favourite. Coconut and pineapple and mini cupcakes with coconut and white chocolate chunks. These didn't last very long in our house i can tell you.

The tiny pink petal is from our apple tree, did you know you can eat them? well yes but only in small quantities. I've picked some today and frozen them and will sugar coat them at the weekend, ready for our big wedding garden party, yummy!
Thanks for all the lovely messages on my last post, Miss Daisy is back to her normal little wotsit self lol and we wouldn't have her any other way.

Big kiss from her to all of you X

With love.

What do you get if you take...

...one little miss Daisy

And one plastic Ogglie eye?
10 hours in hospital and 1cm x 1cm ogglie eye removed from nose is what you get lol
Yes our little miss Daisy pushed said item up her nose the night of my pampered chef hen night, at about 7.15pm 45 minutes before all my friends arrived, great timing argh!
Thankfully Mr cupcakes had only just popped out to move the car off the drive and came back to screaming Daisy and very stressed me. I'd had a look up her nose and there was no way i was getting it out and didn't really want to have a go, for safety reasons.
So after being wrapped up in her dressing gown, off she went to A&E and my party went ahead.
A couple of hours later, she returned with ogglie eye still firmly in place, sigh! they could get it out.
So booked her an appointment for the next morning back in the children's ward, so we arrived for 9'o clock and two doctors later and lots of tears still no ogglie eye.
The decision was made to put her to sleep, not something I'd like to go through again i can tell you. It left us feeling worried and helpless. But it worked and we now had said ogglie eye in a tester pot as a keep sake lol
Brave Daisy came round a little drunk and very hungry and thirsty. Bless her after being nil by mouth for over 9 hours due to no one telling us not to give her breakfast at 7.30am in case they needed to put her to sleep (sigh!). She waffled down 3 lots of juice, marmalade on toast, cheese sandwich, monster munch crisps and chocolate biscuits lol we've never seen her eat so much.
And after they'd taken her blood pressure a few more times and removed the needle from the back of her hand ouch! we could bring her home.
Yeay! no more ogglies up Daisy's nose. We're hoping it has scared her enough never to do something as silly as this ever again.
And please note any naughty Ogglies hiding in the cupcakes room have been found and turned out, never to be pushed up any noses ever again LOL
I want to say a big thank you to my very good friend Carol for taking care of Molly while all of this happened. You are a true friend, big hugs honey xoxo

Less than a month to go?

The invites are sent and the dress is bought (at last lol) things are starting to come together, flowers ordered, gift list ready, hair style found and cupcake recipe's tried and tested.

Now i just need to wait for RSVP's to come in and work out how much food and drink we're gonna need and keep everything crossed for a sunny couple of days. I can't believe it's come round so fast now. It seems like only yesterday when Mr cupcakes asked me that big question on my birthday and turned me into a giddy girl again hehe!
Now in less than a month I'm going to be Mrs S.

I'm so excited now my heads spins just thinking about it lol
