Red Velvet Cupcakes

I know a few of you have been on my case about posting pics of the house, but lets get to really important issue of the day shall we...my all-consuming, nothing else matters, obssession with red velvet cupcakes. AND, not just any red velvet cupcake...the red velvet cupcake of which I partook of...several times...whilst vacationing with my hubby in San Diego two months ago (from a little place called Heavenly Cupcakes...which is exactly what they are...little bits of heaven). I made sure to eat my fill before we left so as to sate my unhealthy desire for the naughty, red morsel...and frankly I was satisfied...up until about a month ago when the mack-daddy of all pregnancy cravings hit. Now here I sit, confused, frustrated unsatisfied and freakin' starving for my beloved cupcake.

Oh dear, red velvety, delight from my dreams...I cannot stop thinking of you. How I wish you were closer so I could admire your perfect reddish hue, and your creamy, white frosting cap. How I wish I could just hold you, smell you, lick you...and eventually devour you, with little or no regret. Hopefully, my dear cake of tangible love, it will not be much longer before we are reunited. Until then, know that you are in my thoughts...constantly.

Now, you may all understand why I have not posted pics of the house. I have much weightier(after I get done eatin' em) and tastier things on my mind.
Here's a pic of what I see when I close my eyes and night, and what I think about every other second of the day. Try not to cry. I know it's beautiful.

I would fly to California to help you get your craving fulfilled. It would be a win win. You know my need to ditch dodge for any reason. If not, here's a second best? http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/red-velvet-cupcakes-with-cream-cheese-frosting-recipe/index.html

Oh my those look delicious!!! You know if Chad was really THE MAN...he would have a dozen ordered and delivered to you for Christmas. Maybe you should put that on your Christmas list....I think you have been pretty good this year...I mean pregnant with your fifth baby and all. You deserve more than a dozen you deserve 12 dozen + a medal.

I was at McDonalds today...I know lucky me...and there was a cute little girl there...named MESA. I thought that was WAY cute. I just thought I would throw that out there to you. EM

Wow- now that is a real problem of proportion. Good thing for the internet and online ordering right? no? well I hope you find other satisfactions and that you don't want those your whole pregnancy, because (speaking from experience) gaining 50 pounds is not a good idea. Don't try it!!
