beers. beets. battlestar gallactica.

This weekend was so great! And I am, of course, ridiculously sad it’s over and once again feeling like it went too fast.  Saturday was a trip up to Kern River Brewing Co. in Kernville.

The brewery was actually  better than I had anticipated. I mean I knew their beers were good, we’ve had them before and we actually had them at our wedding; but they restaurant itself was really yummy and I loved the whole ambiance.  I recommend if you’re in or around Bakersfield you definitely make the hour trip up the canyon to check it out!

The rest of the weekend we spent doing stuff around the house and working outside.  This morning we took our dogs out to play:

Cupcakes & Planting, But Mostly Cupcakes

Luckily, I got a lot of stuff done this weekend that I needed to get done and what I talked about in my last post.  I happened to make some yummy treats this weekend. I made two different cupcakes, which I will hopefully blog about  more later.

Salted Caramel cupcakes, probably one of my top 3 favorites ever! They are SO good. I used the recipe from Sprinkles Bakes, and did the candy on top in a heart shape instead, turned out pretty cute!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes.  Just made these tonight and didn’t try them yet, but the frosting is SUPER good. Had to come up with my own frosting recipe since the one I started off with didn’t come out right.

This weekend I was also able to make a quick trip to a local antique store with my mom and find a handful of vintage tins to plan things in. I had purchased some various succulents on Friday and just needed the tins to plant them in. This is what I have so far:

I am totally obsessed! I even went online this evening to try and find somewhere that sells succulent plans to be shipped, and I hit the jackpot so I think I will order a few pretty ones. Ahh, this is why I adore the Internet and shopping online, so much more variety and usually a lot cheaper than stores I can go to here.

I hope you all have a great week and a lovely Valentines day! Chris and I planned a semi fancy meal to make at home, which is probably my favorite thing to do on Valentine’s day.  We’re going to dine on those peanut butter cupcakes for dessert 🙂

Weekend wishing

I am so excited for this weekend, I love all the free time that a weekend brings so I can get things done!  But, I am also excited for the weekend because…

  • I am getting together with a bunch of lovely blogger/real life friend ladies.  I am making some yummy baked goods for everyone to devour: Red Velvet Whoopie Pies and Salted Caramel Cupcakes.  If they turn out good, I’ll be sure to share the outcome 🙂
  • I plan on making more of my Lovely Valentines to give to my loved ones! To go with them, I am making some pretty DIY envelopes to go with. Kinda like this.
  • Great weather. This weekend it’s going to be sunny and in the 60s, and that’s perfect weather for taking on the adorable little project I want to do:

  • Continuing to work on my secret project. Which I really wish I could talk about, but I love surprises and I hope you do too. Hopefully we can unveil it soon 🙂

Hope you have a great weekend! What are your plans?
