Where Are You Wednesday?

Today... where am I?? Good question..
My brain is going 68,382 miles per hour and cannot slow down.. We had a field trip today, 9 official teacher days left of work, 10 days until we are on vacation, and I am just one stressed out cookie! John tried to say on the way home (from another late day at the good ole' school) "That we are never home! We don't even have time to wipe our butts, let alone water our plants!!" My smart, sarcastic response was, "Well, for your information I ALWAYS find time to wipe." He didn't really find me funny at the moment... and then responded with, "You know what I mean."

Moving on...

So as some of my faithful readers know, I have really gotten into this 'link up'/blog hop thing that goes on in cyber land. Whatever the name is, I find it pretty darn neat that there are all these ways to link up and meet new people! I love it! I have ready some pretty awesome blogs and have started following a few new ones myself.
Now, people, I am fully aware that I am not the best blogger in the world. (This is where I would normally insert excuses of work, field trips, baking jobs, family stuff, busy weekends, etc.)
So I won't do that. I know I need to get better, but sometimes I'm just not feelin' it.. ya know?!?!

I love writing typing. It gives me a chance to clear my mind and just focus--whatever the topic may be. My only problem is actually just SITTING down for some uninterrupted time to just relax. (Mind moving too fast problem, remember?)
Anyhow, I am hoping by me doing these link up/ blog hops on different days it will help me stay a little more accountable. I know... you are probably thinking that it is absolutely ridiculous that she has to hold her 'hobbies' accountable... But, that is just me. I do better when I have deadlines, schedules, agendas, plans... I AM A PLANNER, People!
Those of you that have known me for quite some time (yes, those same that still haven't figured out how to officially 'follow' me. ;) ) know that I have always been one that meticulously plans... for everything.

So, this blog is dedicated to joining a new blog hop, Where Are You Wednesday?
Can't wait to meet some fellow bloggers from all over the world!

Tasty Tuesdays! Margarita Cupcakes!

So, I am really starting to like this 'link up thing' and I am going to start connecting to Tasty Tuesdays!

For Mother's Day, John and I hosted a lunch for our mothers, along with the new mama, my sister. My theme was Bright, Spring, Colorful (of course.) And Mexican for lunch! YUMMY!

As we all know, NO meal is complete without dessert! I found this amazing Margarita Cupcake from Brown Eyed Baker... and I must say.... One of the TOP 5 cupcakes I have ever put in my mouth! Say what?!?! Let me repeat, Blissful, Heaven, Yummy, MMMmmmm, Good!

So, without further anticipation.......



Note 1: If you choose to make these, please use WORTHY tequila!! I cannot say enough, how important it is to use decent liquor in recipes. PEOPLE... is DOES make a HUGE difference in the taste. Patron is used for all tequila drinks (and recipes) in this house!

Note 2: I did make a few changes to the recipe, nothing major... I would be lying if I said I ever follow a recipe exact. I will only use certain kinds of butter, vanilla, milk, etc. Do what works BEST for you in the kitchen! :)

Enjoy!!! AND try* to use more Patron in your recipe than in your drink. ;) Just sayin....
