Sumo Stops By

Hello everyone!

I'm so excited to be blog swapping over here today! I love reading The Road to Sweetness and hearing all about the cupcake adventures! They recently gave away 100 cupcakes on my blog - I'm still jealous!

I'm Sumo, from Sumo's Sweet Stuff!

Sumo's Sweet Stuff

My real name is Summer, but my husband nicknamed me Sumo when we were dating. (Should I be offended?) Now he's got all of my family, as well as lots of our friends, calling me Sumo. I think Aunt Sumo sounds pretty great, don't you? I live in Utah with my husband, and our two beautiful daughters - Reece & Remi!

Growing up, I never used to be all that domestic or crafty, so I think no one is more surprised than my mom at how I've ended up where I am today! I started Sumo's Sweet Stuff last May as a place to keep some of my crafting projects so that my personal blog wasn't overrun with them. Somehow, that developed into a place to host giveaways, share tutorials, share recipes, and feature fellow bloggers' ideas and blogs! I also use my blog to promote my etsy shop, so if you're ever in the market for some baby girl accessories, come on over! Every Monday is Market Yourself Monday, where you can link up your latest projects, and visit other blogs to get some inspiration!

Mouth-Watering Wednesday
Things to Try Thursday

Thanks again for having me! I hope to see you all over at Sumo's Sweet Stuff soon!

Cinnabon Cupcakes!

We were just at the Palisades Mall (Nyack, NY) to see an afternoon showing of The Social Network (which was awesome PS!) and were of course immediately taken by the hand upon entering by the intoxicating smell of Cinnabon. Which is conveniently placed just a few steps away from the theater.

And we found this:

They now have cupcakes! I didn't sample, but just thought I'd deliver the news. They had mini and regular sizes available.

Cute frosting on the vanilla ones above, meant, I assume, to resemble a Cinnabon!

Cupcakes and Facebook...takin' over the world!

Cupcake Vineyards

Um, hellooooooo!!??!?!?! Why has no one ever brought this to my attention!?!?!

Cupcake Vineyards! Brought to you by Underdog Wine Merchants, it doesn't look like they have much of anything to do with the baked goods other than capitalizing on using the word 'cupcake' and their "shtick" so to speak is that they want to "invoke the feeling that you get when reward yourself,” just as you do with a cupcake.

A co-worker says its both yummy AND cheap! Perfect combination. Looks like they've got a sweepstakes goin' on too, so get over to their Web site to see what it's all about and of course, enter!


ps, happy October!!!

pps, anybody ELSE other than my savvy co-worker ever try any of the wines?
