I have all of these new topics in my head to blog about, however I cannot get the thoughts of cupcakes out of my head. On Monday, I called one of favorite bakeries, Sweets on the Square, to order cake pops for my 4th grade son’s class and two birthday cakes for his two teachers. I was so excited to order from them. I LOVE their cupcakes and I now had an excuse to go in and have one. Actually, I get to have two, one when I order and place a deposit (I am going in purposely for this because I did call in to order but I insist on going in to eat a cupcake…I mean place a deposit) and another when we have the yumminess on Friday in my son’s class (for the teachers birthdays, of course). Anyway, take a look at this cupcake:
This was my first time having this flavor. OMG!!!! It was soooo delicious! I knew it would be good, because everything I have tried has been so tasty. Notice, it is a square cupcake! That in itself excites me. All of their cupcakes are square. They are in downtown Lawrenceville, on the “square”, hence the name “Sweets on the Square“.
This particular trip to the bakery turned out even better than I ever expected. I was on my way there and one of the PTA vice-presidents happens to call me to discuss my current committee activity. I was the President of the PTA for the last two years, and a VP for the two years prior and now chair the school fundraising committee, so we have history! She is more like a friend than my PTA VP, so I told her to meet me at the bakery for 45 minutes (she works right by the bakery). We could discuss things in person instead of on the phone (and eat cupcakes!). My plan was to treat her to a cupcake; well…she came, treated me to lunch (they serve yummy light fare for lunch too) and I got that cupcake (it comes with the lunch!). The Lord really was shining His love on me, the angels were singing and I hit the jackpot!
So, this post is not just about my delish, yummy, yummy and again yummy cupcake . It is about friends, work and fellowship. And to top that off, I read the website and this is what they say “This bakery is dedicated to moms who are an inspiration to us all”. Can you wipe my tears right now?! How beautiful; and here we are two mothers, working for the PTA, doing the room parent stuff, jsut trying to do our part to help education, our kids and our school and get a wonderful lunch, great service, a nice place to sit and chat. This experience was all inspired by who we are, Mothers. I never knew the bakery was dedicated to Mothers just like my friend and I. How much love is that?
Now, I am aware everyone is fasting right now, dieting, exercising and eating “right”, I am too, but it can’t be “wrong” to eat one of these:
So, I worked out today. Taught my classes with more vigor and no desert for me tonight, but I have my cupcake love jones still going on and the thought of having another stays in my head. I’m going to have another cupcake, tomorrow, for all the mothers, who inspire us all.
