Awful picture of the insides:
Also, whenever I make filled cupcakes, I always make Doug a sample platter with the leftovers...
Then I made lemon cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting. Awesome.
Snacking on: I had leftover buttercream. I couldn't let it go to waste, could I?!
YUM. Also... what's summer without milkshakes?!
And not to be totally unhealthy, here's some lemonade.
Now that I seem totally obsessed with food and eating, I suppose I should also share that I have been...
Exercising: I promise! I did another step class Monday morning, and it went much more smoothly than last week. It's actually a great workout once you kind of know what you're doing!
Enjoying: the dog park. Zooey is a riot to watch.
Reading: I have been a reading machine since school let out! I've read a bunch of books, but a few that are worth mentioning are Brave New World (that one had been on my to-read list for quite some time) and Speak. I've become a little obsessed with Goodreads, and I gave Brave New World 3/5 stars and Speak 4/5. I'm also currently reading David Platt's new book Radical Together, in preparation for...
Excited about: Student Life Camp! On Sunday, we are leaving for Alabama with about 30 teenagers. We'll be staying in condos on a beach and attending sessions where David Platt will be the teacher!
Also excited about: Seeing my family this weekend for Emily's graduation!
Extremely proud of: My little sister is the salutatorian!!! Smarty pants!
Listening to: Ben Pasley, of Enter the Worship Circle - his album Chair & Microphone. My favorite song is "Hurricane".
Snapping pictures of: the Brodhagens! You can see some of my favorites here.
Wishing: that Kent, NY was five minutes away.
Missing: Victoria. I had to make jam by myself this morning... and I had no one to panic over the "full roiling boil" with me.
