The Ultimate Preppy Party Animal!

Alexander is bringing cupcakes in for his class Birthday party tomorrow. It was supposed to be last week, but a few illnesses held us back a bit. He wanted the "Dragon" that I made for his end of the year class party last year. (It's an alligator, really, and the school mascot.) So I did what any (insane, out of her mind mother would do) and opt not to get the $5 pretty cupcakes with sprinkles at the grocery store and spend an enormous amount of time to create Old Swampy. Actually. It's pretty easy to do. I got the idea from my Hello Cupcake cookbook. Every mom who likes to bake should have one!

Kiss My White (After Labor Day) Ass!

the worst night of my life... ever... SERIOUSLY!
