Deep Chocolate Lurve

Hi friends Smile How are you???


The dogs are thoroughly confused because packing extravaganza began last night.

They’re wondering why this is already happening again…. I told them the post would be up Tuesday morning Winking smile

In between packing up boxes that I took home from work, listening to music and practicing my Dance Trance dances, I also tweeted the following:


The famous cupcake:


Vegan double chocolate. I die.

My work friends gave it to me last night –well, actually they had a mannequin hand it to me and then we all hugged and took pictures. They said they would sing too but didn’t know what song to sing- and instead of eating it at work, I wanted to have enough time to concentrate and give it the love it deserved.

Moist, chocolaty, perfect frosting to cake ratio:

A cupcake will almost never do ya wrong.

It also won’t deploy.

Kind of reminds me of this:

Brownie Husband

Hahaha Smile

Breakfast this morning was a bowl of uncooked oats with almond milk, Sun Warrior and 1/2 crumbled cashew Larabar + cinnamon


Now I’m at Bizzle, doing the blog thang and planning out my life for the next couple of days.


There’s a lot to do, but also last-minute shenanigans to enjoy Smile 

Have a wonderful day <3

    Ohhhh I die. Anytime vegan frosting looks that dark and rich, you just can’t go wrong 🙂 Have a wonderful Sunday love!!

    I’m with you on the life-planning-ness. I feel like I make a new to-do list every couple hours just to keep myself on track. I love that you had a relationship with your cupcake. Reminds me of the part in Eat Pray Love when she says “I’m having a relationship with my pizza.”

    The cupcake looks like a dream. From heaven above. The darkness. The frosting ratio (it looks perfect!…for me I can never really have too much frosting :))

    Glad you savored it after work and paid homage to it!

    And the next few days…well girl, good luck. You are making an epic move it sounds like across the country, which is so hard (done it, twice) but you will get thru it and think of how awesome it will be to be close by your fam once there!

    Hahaha I love Brownie Husband. Tina Fey is awesome.

  9. MoJoWellness on December 5, 2010 at 10:50 am

    I had a maddening sweet tooth the other day and came across a little idea you must try!

    Palm full of semi sweet coco chips
    Palm full of oats
    Splash of almond milk (or any other milk or water)
    1 tbsp of any Nut Butter

    Pop it in the Mike for 35 sec. Boom. melty choco, Nut butter deliciousness…

    Eat it hot or put in fridge for 20 min and have enjoy a nobake

    I’ve never had a vegan cupcake, though my freshman year of college I was huge into vegan cookies that they sold at my college’s grocery store. Have a great day 🙂

    I remember that Brownie Husband clip from a few years ago. Hilarious! Chocolate is good for the soul though.

  27. kt on December 5, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    I love the last shot of Tina in her chocolatey bed with brownie smeared all over her face. Thanks for the laugh.

    Good luck with your packing! Maybe you will need another cupcake to keep up your stamina.

  28. salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on December 5, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    oh m goodness….that cupcake looks amazing!!!

  29. Maria on December 5, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    That brownie looks like a bite size piece of heaven. I also like the idea of the brownie husband and the fact that it won’t deploy 🙂 I hope everything’s okay and that it all works out for you!!

  30. Ashley on December 5, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    I could seriously live in that cupcake right now : ) I feel ya on the “planning the life for a couple days” – there’s so much going on I can’t even think past the next few hours! Good luck with the packing – that is NEVER fun!

  31. grocery goddess jen on December 5, 2010 at 4:26 pm
