I love anything CUPCAKE! What is it about CUPCAKES? And I am not even a cake-lover. But I love a pretty cupcake. Maybe cuz they are so small and cute and covered with creamy, fluffy nostalgia. That's it, you know... they take us back to our childhood.
I found this little cupcake stand at Mervyn's on clearance for two dollars and it's on the orange tray that I got at IKEA for 99 cents. I am loving orange these days. What's with that!

So some marketing genius came up with this idea to market a bottle of wine and call it "Cupcake Chardonnay". Come on, now who wouldn't want a bottle of this sitting on your counter! I fell for it... and it's available at Cost Plus.

Don't know if I told you, but our son Shawn who just graduated from ASU got a job at the Apple Store in Phoenix. And because we have not been to see him at his job and we kinda want to see all the iPhone hoopla and they are open till midnite, we're going tonight! Should be quite the setting for some crazy photo ops!

Wow, I would love to have a bottle of "Cupcake Chardonnay", I probably wouldn't drink it, but it would be so cute to look at!

Hope you had phone at the Apple Store!

And..what a wonderful rewarding job you must have. Serving the Lord and helping His people all in one job~ now that's pretty cool!

Hope you tell more stories that happen at your work!

I seldom find that the fun wines taste like their names. I can remember growing up seeing "Elderberry wine" and it stirring up these connotations of summer fresh berries in light sugar. My favorite! When I was finally old enough to have a sip, I was sorely disappointed at how yucky it was. LOL

I love cupcakes, too. So sweet!
