Midweek Baking

Hello and happy Thursday! I feel like the first few days of the week flew by but at the same time I don’t remember doing much to make them go by so quickly. Does anyone else ever have those weeks? Hopefully the trend continues until work is over Friday. Have a great day 🙂


When I woke up Wednesday, I was ready to go which was refreshing. I think my body is finally adjusted to the time change. Even though it’s only an hour it can really mess with you when the sun isn’t rising until close to 7 am. I even had plenty of time to eat my breakfast. Earlier in the week it felt like I was a chicken running around with it’s head caught off.


A big chunk of my day was spent looking into a management class or a certificate as a personal development goal for 2018. If you have any insight on that I’d be so grateful! During lunch, I kept on reading The Knockoff. I’m really enjoying the story and change that it is from my typical thrillers and mystery novels.

After work I had to head back to Target. I managed to get everything on my list this time. Normally I wouldn’t make a midweek trip and just save it for the weekend but I needed liners for cupcakes since I had about 3 left. Major fail last time I went. Having a list and wanting to be in and out helped make the trip go quickly.


When I got home, I put on my apron and got to work. Well first I made a smoothie so I wasn’t starving but then I got to work. I followed this recipe for vanilla cupcakes. Since they are for a bacherlorette party this weekend, I didn’t taste the finished product. But the little bit of batter that I tried was so tasty.


Once the cupcakes were done, it was time for dinner. I heated up leftover soup from Sunday night and cut up the remaining bread as well. We ate and watching the last episode of The Crown. Since the third season will have a new cast in order to move forward in time, it was a little bittersweet watching the last episode. I ended up still being hungry so I grabbed a slice of bread and dipped it in olive oil and a little balsamic vinegar. We ended the night with an episode of The Office before heading to bed.

Question of the day: What’s the last thing you baked?

  1. Yay for baking!! I am actually baking four batches of cupcakes today! Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, and lemon and I cannot wait!!

    I want to hear more about the personal development, so please keep us updated! So exciting for you ❤

    Also, I am going to look up the book you're reading! You're always reading something good 🙂


    1. Wow four batches?! That’s crazy Allie lol.

      I will! I’m currently looking into some certificates and programs so we shall see what happens. Plus I need to consider cost and what my company will/won’t cover.

      Definitely check it out! It’s a great spring/summer read since it’s light hearted.


    1. Adding a little salt and pepper to oil is also delicious! For whatever reason balsamic sounded good last night though. Fingers crossed that they’re good or I’ll be so embarrassed lol. I hope you have a wonderful day Dawn 🙂


  2. Yum cupcakes! I think the last thing I baked was cookies around the holidays. LOL I don’t really bake much. I’m trying to get more into cooking though – I need to try healthier recipes, etc. I hope you have a great Friday! 🙂



    1. Holiday cookies are a must to make! I love making healthy recipes! Or finding ones that are “unhealthy” and making a few tweaks to incorporate a little more nutrition into them.


  3. Ohhh I didn’t realize the third season of the Crown was going to have a new cast– I love the girl playing the Queen– she did such a good job! Bummer!
    Hope those cupcakes are delish! Have a great weekend.
