Happy Friday:

October 7, 2011


So I am super fortunate that my little brother's girlfriend, Samantha, is a big "foodie". Well, she just appreciates good food, and I get to reap the benefits sometimes ;) I mean, I like food as much as the next person. I have some favorites (Nick & my favorite is some good BBQ, pulled pork, tri-tip, yum!) But remember my doughnut story? Well, I first tried those because my Samantha brought me some. She's so cute, I'll get a knock at my door and Samantha will be there with a bag of goodies: she's drop me off crepes, waffles, fresh fruit, soup: you name it. She's seriously the best and always so thoughtful to bring me by some food at the good places she stops at.

So has anyone heard of Crumbs Bake Shop? Samantha told me she was going to make a trip down to LA to pick some up and to go to their website to pick out some flavors I wanted. So I go to the cupcakes page and ohmigoodness, I must have spent an hour looking through all the flavors and cupcakes. The pictures are delectable and each description is so mouth watering!

Nick got 2 flavors and I got 2 flavors. Birthday cake, mint, cookies and creme, and red velvet. We're simple folks. They were huge cupcakes and they were soooooo good. Best thing about their website? Besides all the cupcake images, they have online ordering, so you can totally order some for yourself or a special someone too and have it shipped straight to your front door.

(if she's reading this, thanks for always bringing us the best treats Sam!)


So how was your first week of the new month? I started watching the new show on ABC, Pan Am, I'm hooked. Probably because I love this era. Anyone else watch the show?

Loved all your comments about the post on period romances. Nice to see there are lots of other romantics out there! You know what my husband said when he read it? He said that Mr. Darcy reminded him of Severus Snape, lol. I was a bit confused. He said not the actor in the movie but in this image, how his hair was all disheveled and the clothes he was wearing, it reminded him of the description of Severus Snape from the Harry Potter books. Wow. That's what he took from my romantic post, silly boys ;) It gave me a good laugh.

Hope you have a most lovely weekend friends. Be back next week with a set of new (awesome) good cheer deals!

28 hello's:

  1. I am loving Pan Am too. I totally want to be a Pan Am stewardess and maybe a spy on the side. The glamour, the travel, the promise of an exciting and beautiful life, they've done a good job with this one.

  2. I've totally heard of crumbs! It was one of the first things I blogged about when I first started blogging. They have the best combo of flavors.

  7. To be fair to Nick, Snape was probably the biggest romantic in those books. A flawed romantic, perhaps, but still a romantic nonetheless.

  13. beautiful cupcakes... and sooo yummy !! I went to their website and love the fact that you can specify the size of the cupcakes... how about these in mini??

    ReplyDelete
  14. OMG those cupcakes look amazing! I really want some now. When I read that they have online ordering and deliver, a little part of me thought 'I could do that when I visit America. Order it and they'll be there waiting for me'. A little sad.

  15. These pictures are making me drool. As if you can order cupcakes online now! Is there anything the internet CAN'T do?? =)

  16. My mouth is watering just looking at these scrumptious cupcakes :) *smile*

  17. I'm thrilled about Pan Am as well. There's something so romantic yet simple about that era. I love how glamorous flying was...not like today when everyone wears sweats and carries their iPods, no meals on planes, and skinny aisles. I remember getting dressed up to fly to see my grandparents when I was kid. I also remember the excitement of walking off the plane and directly into the arms of loved ones waiting to see us. Things have changed so much.

  20. Oh, you are so bad for posting this haha :) I am trying to limit my sugar intake BUT these just look sooooo good! Perhaps it's good we don't have this shop over here, lol :) Hope you had a wonderful weekend! xo

  21. ummmm those look so tasty its not even funny. the toppings alone are enough to make my mouth water!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sprinkles is still my favorite cupcake! I declared to my boyfriend that I will not eat another cupcake unless its from Sprinkles or else it's not worth all the calories ;) But I do like the mini ones from Crumbs. Their big ones are huge! and I'm terrible at portion control, haha.

    I watched a little bit of Pan Am last night and will give it a chance because I love that era as well. I know I shouldn't but I keep on comparing it to Mad Men which I am totally in love with; it really it one of the best shows I've ever watched.

  23. i work DANGEROUSLY close to a crumbs bakery and often treat myself (and my coworkers) to their delicious cupcakes. so sooo good.

    p.s. i'm loving pan am too! it's like the style of mad men and the sass of grey's anatomy had a baby.
