the final hours…

I’ve been back from Austin for seven days. I enjoyed my time in the south, but being back in the midwest — it’s a good feeling. Home. Family. Friends. Laughs. Pups. Meow Meows. Love. It’s what makes a homecoming so darn worth it.

BUT Amanda and I didn’t leave Austin without showing the weirdest city in Texas how we midwest girls rock out. So we showed ’em…by eating cupcakes for dinner and finishing it off with a bottle of wine…each. 🙂

A big thanks to Hey Cupcake ( for their amazing hospitality and red velvet cupcake with cream cheese hook-ups!!

Amanda enjoying the red velvet deliciousness…thoroughly.

Yours truly reveling in the dark chocolate and vanilla bean icing delicacies.

It should be noted we each bought two cupcakes. Again, we midwesterners don’t play when it comes to our sweet tooth. The next day we found ourselves groveling over our final cupcakes, smashing them quickly into our faces before we went through airport security.

It should also be noted that while eating these fantastic morsels we were positioned For all eyes to see us abusing our cupcakes as if we’d missed a weeks worth of meals. Again…it’s a midwest thang. 🙂

love (officially being a Kansan),
