Easter cupcakes from this weekend 🙂 I tweaked my coconut cupcake recipe a bit (subbed coconut milk for buttermilk, so good).
I have quite a few cupcake recipes I want to share, but don’t really have the energy/patience right now to put them together and post them, so hopefully later this week! Instead, I’m stealing this “Ten on Tuesday” thing from a bunch of bloggers. Also, I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! Ours was super busy (baking, gardening, family stuff) and I feel like I got no rest after a super long work week. Oh well! Here goes.
1. How many blogs do you read every day and what are they? (I’m talking the ones you NEVER miss)
I have all my blogs categorized in my Google Reader and I have a “friends” category that I try and read first out of everything else. I usually have about 4-5 of those that post every day. I also try to read my handful of wedding and food blogs as well. Obviously, cupcake are most important 😉
2. How many “best friends” do you have? Do you have different “besties” for different areas of your life?
I would say that I have quite a few friends that I consider “best friends”! They aren’t people that I can spend all my extra time with (most live hours away), but they are people I have been friends with from the days of Jr. High to high school, to meeting just a few years ago. I feel like I can easily connect with them through chat/email/texts, and we try to get together often!
3. What’s your daily make up routine?
It’s kind of changed in the past few months. Here goes. Moisturizer, primer, a bit of good foundation, some BE mineral veil, blush, a dark brown eyeliner (on top only) and mascara. Oh and usually just chapstick, I’m not a lipstick kind of gal. It’s kind of rare these days that I wear eyeshadow, but I do sometimes.
4. What is your ideal girl’s night?
I’m kind of a fan of staying in and being lazy, so watching movies, playing games and drinking beer/wine. Throw in some snacks and cupcakes, and that pretty much sounds perfect.
5. Do you keep up with your nails/toenails or are they au natural?
My toes are always painted (by ME), because it always lasts so long! I like to have my nails painted but it’s so much of a pain to keep up; it seems like my nails just start chipping to fast/easily. So I would say maybe half they time they are painted.
6. What’s your best roommate story (assuming you had a roommate at some point in your life)?
Is it weird that I’ve never had a roommate? I lived at home during the time I was going to college, and I moved out at 20 into an apartment with Chris! I guess he was my only roommate, since we didn’t get married until FOUR YEARS later. (4 years, can you believe that! :p ) So I wish I had a good story, but sadly I don’t.
7. What’s your “go to” outfit that you wear more than anything else?
I’ve been in a crappy body image mood lately and kind of don’t like a lot of my clothes. I have a favorite pair of jeans and a couple shirts that sort of make me happy, along with some flats (of course). Nothing exciting!
8. Do you have a beauty secret?
If you knew me you wouldn’t be asking me beauty questions, hah!
9. Did you read Seventeen magazine growing up?
I probably bought a few, but I wasn’t really into that whole girly magazine thing. It’s just not me.
10. How did you learn to put on makeup?
I have no idea. My mom never wore a ton of makeup really, and so I guess just from friends and watching other people?
