The BIG 3-0

A blueberry cuppie from Flour & Sun Bakery and the smallest, cheapest bottle of Veuve Clicquot, waiting for Marc to get home and kick off his birthday weekend. He'll be 30 years old on Sunday.

He was just a daisy-fresh boy of 27 when I met him. I think...

Ah memories:)

A Cupcake for Breakfast

Who can ask for anything more?

Arriving at work too late to stop for coffee, or anything else for that matter, I had to resort to the office coffee pot this morning. Last time that thing was cleaned was around 1975.

I stumbled over there a few minutes ago to pour myself a cup of black, as whoever I've been stealing milk from in the mornings has been so rude as to not buy a new container for a few days now. The nerve of some people.

And to my surprise, I found a tray of these beauties :)

And it was GOOD.

Back to work...

Cupcake Encounters

I've had a few in the past week and thought I'd share.

These big beauties are from Stein's Market in Montvale, NJ, brought in by a co-worker after a successful company event the night before:

Clockwise from bottom left that's a cookies 'n' cream, black and white cookie, red velvet, and classic vanilla.

And the next, which came later in the week, was in celebration of a very special guy. Colleagues both past and present gathered together to raise a glass in honor of Steven Betts, art director/real estate agent extraordinaire. He can design your dream house, then sell it to ya too!

Here he is, posing with the ultimate accessory: a box of a half-dozen Buttercup Bakery cupcakes! Brought to him by yours truly.

Ah, fun co-workers (especially those who share a love for cuppies) make the world go round.
