This is my special advertised guest. The best friend from high school. She is Jessica.
I thought we would be sharing a fabulous cupcake-a-thon with you, but here starts the confession. Actually, this whole post is a confession. Let me start with the intentions. I completely and totally intended to go to the Cupcake Love-In this weekend. I was psyched.
I bought a ticket weeks in advance and wrote it into my calendar. A few moments of thought later, and it dawned on me. Who does not like cupcakes?? I immediately messaged my best friend Jessica on Facebook. I told her she needed to drive up from the University of Arizona to come join me. After all, there were vegan vendors like 24 Carrots and Cruelty-Free Cupcakes. Lactose-intolerance? No problems. Vegans avoid all that stuff anyway. Score for cupcakes, score for the moo moos.
Well, the 2nd Annual Cupcake Love-In sold out. (YAY) …aaaand I ditched it.
Sunday morning I found out Jessica did not have a ticket and could not get in. This would not work. Instead of hiking it over to schmooze those cupcakes, I let the world know my Economics major actually
means something has taken over my life. A charity ticket is a sunk cost. Quality time with Jessica? Economically speaking, priceless! (Confession: Attendee Fail and Nerd at Heart.)
Do not worry though, we ate cupcakes anyway! Actually, we went all the way up to Scottsdale to enjoy some catch-up conversation over coffee and shopping. You may judge us, be we consider cupcakes and coffee to be the breakfast of weekends. This is, of course, why we are such good friends.
Final Confession: They were not local. Not by a long shot. And speaking of which, that is what topped my cupcake. A shot of frosting. There, the truth is known. I fess! I fess!
I want to make it up to you though. I need some local business inspiration. And for that, a vote is necessary.
Where should I go this weekend to photograph some scrumptious (cough *nutritious* cough) breakfast from local restaurants? Where do YOU go for a tasty morning meal?
