yum yum, it’s national cupcake day!

Cupcake

I don't know why I picked this picture. I actually HATE cats.

Leave it to Six Words to know that today is National Cupcake Day!

As a DC resident, I love a good yuppy, over-priced cupcake from a store that only makes cupcakes (Georgetown Cupcake, cough cough). I could write an ode to the cupcake, but it would probably end up with me talking about my thighs and then leaving work early to go to the gym a cupcake store.  Instead, I’m going to let the masters at one of my favorite blogs, Cake Wrecks, do their magic.  Click below for some hilarious pictures.

I hope you celebrate this very important day!

happiness in tiny delicious dessert form.

If I could have any job in the world, I would like to own a candy store or a cupcake shop. Maybe an ice cream parlor. Something along those lines.

I’ve thought this for a long time. There is pretty much no happier place in the world than one of these shops. In high school, I used to work in a WONDERFUL candy store during the holiday season, and I loved every second of it. No one is ever pissed off while they’re buying candy. And if you work at a candy store, you get to nibble everything for free. Helloooo heaven.

The reason this comes up today is that my friends and I just discovered our own little piece of heaven in Georgetown: Georgetown Cupcake. Please just look at their website/menu and be jealous. We were wandering towards M Street to get coffee, and then, like a vision, this cupcake store appeared. I’d heard of it before, but I didn’t know that it was AROUND THE CORNER from our program’s headquarters. Which means I will probably go there every day. Which means next time you see me, I’ll have gained 200 pounds but I’ll be a lot happier.

Now everyone go eat a cupcake and get excited that it’s almost Friday.
