Cupcake Cutie

This morning I actually got up on time and took a nice long morning walk. Yesterday I wasn't as good, I woke up at noon but I did make a dress. I've had this fabric sitting in the cabinet since I got my sewing machine. I love cupcakes and cupcake prints so it was a must have. Unlike many cupcake prints this one seemed more grown up, if a cupcake print dress can be grownup. Let me explain, the art is clear and realistic instead of being cartoon-y and childish.
I worked extra hard on this one to have it fit better at the top, nothing worse than a strapless dress that doesn't fit on top. There is nothing wrong with the pattern, it is just designed for a person with a wider back and smaller boobage.

While the strapless is great for this weather I really am looking forward to wearing it this fall with a cardigan.
 What better excuse is there to get cupcakes than when taking photos of your new cupcake dress?
I was good and only got two, one for me and one for Hubby. The one with a cherry is a pineapple right side up cake and the other is chocolate peanut peanut butter topped with Reese's Pieces. Yum!
 My go to cupcakery is Lucy and Leo's. You may have seen them on Cupcake Wars, while they didn't win they are #1 in my heart. When I was loosing weight I would stop by once a week to get a chocolate peanut butter, key lime pound cake, or pumpkin cupcake (depending on the season), it was my one weekly treat.
I had really good timing for these pics, just as I pulled into the house the rain clouds thickened and the thunder started rumbling. I had just enough time to round up the kitties from their morning romp in the yard before it started pouring. It looks like it might rain the rest of the afternoon but that is perfect for Netflix, coffee, and crochet (and a cupcake!).
