Fate is moving you towards your destiny.
-De La Vega
A little over 20 days, and I miss my blog more then anything! I apologize for my business, but academics do “come first.” Next semester though, I will be taking intro to entrepreneurship at UMASS and [hopefully] an Archaeology of Food class at Amherst College! The best part about this classes is that they will enable me to continue my foody-isms. I hope it all works out, it would definitely make this upcoming semester incredible.
On another note though, I am increasingly busy with classes and what not. I am going to be done with class on Friday, but have 3 final papers and a take home logic exam. I’ll stay the week at school to finish that up, and do some work. After, I will be home relaxing and getting ready for my trips to Honduras and Japan! I have been fundraising like crazy, and still have $650 to raise for Honduras. I am working very hard to reach that goal, by the 5th of May.
Next tidbit. On Thursday, I will be heading over to UMASS to see the incredible Dede Wilson! [her blog can be found by clicking HERE, and it’s an incredible one!] There will be a cupcake battle there, but I can’t participate because I’m not on the UMASS meal plan. I will still go to watch, and [finally] get to meet Dede! Words cannot describe how excited I am to finally have the opportunity to meet her. Her work is beautiful, and I am honored to get this opportunity!
In terms of catching up on my blog, I have some crazy exciting new orders, so don’t worry they’ll be posted soon. I’m posting photos of the red velvet cupcakes I made for the Smith College group SmithSTAND. They were having a birthday meeting! =] Yes, the frosting is died pink for a CoutureCook touch. Also I have plenty of new recipes to share, including one today! I hope you enjoy 😉 And have no fear, as soon as the calm after the storm arrives, I will be back to business!
