It's Monday...

and somehow a really great weekend only makes it more difficult to return to the working world (and further reiterates my desire to have a large trust that would not necessitate gainful employment). But at least I was greeted by this Facebook friend request this morning:

"Ms. Esq it's 3:00 am add me to your list or else! I find threats to be very effective. Btw I do know where you stay ho, so add me!!!!!!!!!!!!!111.".

How can that not make me smile?

In other news, I made the best cupcakes I've ever created for my friend's birthday on Friday. Chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting (I could just about live on these they were so yummy)--and for the more traditional eaters, I made butter cake with cream cheese frosting. We celebrated her birthday with a dance party, which slowed down when a cop showed up around 1:30. It was so much fun to dance at someone's house without the grossness that usually accompanies a good booty shaking (Although I did have a guest very inappropriately hit on me, for lack of a better way to put it, and for the first time instead of avoiding the person, I'm going to talk to him about it. He needs to realize how incredibly unacceptable his conduct was, and since we attend the same church I feel more of an obligation to confront him. Not looking forward to this conversation).

Since I didn't go to bed until 6:00 a.m. I slept in, and then we went hiking and watched the paragliders take off and fly around like birds. Gorgeous day, leaves, views. Ended the day with dinner with friends and more late night conversation--this time curled up on the balcony under blankets. It's a good life.

p.s. I'm grateful for my family's visit on Friday. Took my nieces to the Discovery Museum, and my mom and sister made major headway in decorating my apartment while we were gone. I am soooo glad to finally have some of that done; I like what we did with my hall so much that I might even post photos.

But I used the recipe as modified by TRindell (I used almost two cups less sugar than what the original called for and I used milk instead of cream). So good. You're going to love it!

Those cupcakes sound DIVINE! I am really glad you are going to talk to this guy - it is so important to take a stand for ourselves even if it is a little uncomfortable..I would love to see photos!

The thought of those cupcakes are making me salivate! YUM.

Also, I know how much it sucks when you get hit on inappropriately, especially by someone from your church (who,let's face it, should know better) and you're right you are obligated to confront him. I always find that if you pray about something like this before the confrontation it's a lot less traumatic. But what would I know? I just posted a naked photo of Lance Armstrong!

Thanks for the peanut butter icing recipe! I might even make myself cupcakes for my bday!! :)

Good luck with your conversation to come, too. That will not be easy, but you are one of the best folks I know for shooting someone straight. Update us when it's over if you can!

TC said...

Thanks for the recipes! WOOHOO!

I'm impressed that you are going to confront. I used to run away from a church guy that kind of stalked me and eventually quit going to a Bible study just to avoid him. NOT the best way to handle it.

Kimberly said...

p.s. your cupcakes sound like my groomscake. :)

Jennifer said...

Those cupcakes sound like the baked version of reeses peanut butter cups. Count me in for trying that recipe!!

I admire you for confronting the guy who hit on you. Those are such awkward situations. Way to stand up for yourself girl.

Your weekend sounded great - I love good times, and relaxation - it definitely makes those Mondays hard!

Sounds like a lovely lovely weekend :)

I love that you got your family round to do your decorating ;) I'm quite sad and like all that interior design stuff so I'd love to see some pictures :)
