Vacations are always short lived and I end up having to spend the next week transitioning back to reality. What do you mean that I don't get fresh seafood and a walk on the beach every night? But more on that this week.
The main reason for this blog post is the giveaway that Melyssa and fourteen other lovely ladies (including myself) are throwing. Who doesn't want gift cards to Amazon, Etsy and Starbucks? Fall is hopefully right around the corner, which means you have lots of cardigans, scarves and pumpkin spice lattes to purchase.

But before we get to that...a semi-rant on the whole cupcake empire that seems to have swept the country by storm these past few years.

Pros of cupcakes: For a single person, I would much rather be tempted by just one cupcake at a time than a whole cake staring me down every night waiting for a break in my willpower. You also have every flavor combo under the sun to choose from. I am now a maple bacon convert; it's like having pancakes with bacon and dipping everything in maple syrup. What's not to love about that? Also, as an iffy-chocolate lover, cupcakes allow me to get what I want while not raining on all of the chocoholics' parade.
And now for the downside of cupcakes...

Let's start with the price. Because for the price of ONE cupcake, I can purchase a box cake mix and frosting and have a nice large cake for myself and several others. Also, their cake to frosting ratio is extremely off. I know all of the artistry that is associated with cupcakes lies in the frosting, but seriously, I would like to not be in a sugar coma or become a diabetic. And finally, I'm going to steal an argument from Kevin.

And now for the fun part! May the odds be ever in your favor.

Relaxing after a day of crossing off things on my to do list. Even better when they have been on there for weeks!

These cupcakes look delicious! If you like maple bacon cupcakes, you should try a maple bacon donut!
While cupcakes do make me happy, so does any sort of travel/vacation!
