Can’t spell meme without “me”!

What does this blogger do when she has cupcake writer’s block?

I am always humbled when I come across other bloggers that tag me for memes. I think its the blogosphere’s equivalent of speed dating. Imagine my surprise, during my ritualistic morning google reader-ing and breakfast, that Tanya over at Take the Cannoli had tagged me! Little ol me?! Ah shucks…

Let the meme begin!

The rules: Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

What was I doing ten years ago?
Ten years ago I was just graduating high school, preparing for the rigors of 4 years of university and trying to figure what the heck I was gonna do. Hmmm… not much as changed since then. HAHA!

What are five (non-work) things on my to-do list for today:
1. grocery store – pending
2. vacuum – pending
3. write in my blog – CHECK
4. go to post office – pending
5. work on Cupcake Hero entry – pending
Obviously my to-do lists don’t really work since 4/5 are still pending…

5 Snacks I enjoy:
1. cupcakes
2. sweet maui onion chips
3. string cheese
4. raw carrots not cooked. gross!
5. popcorn

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
1. pay off debt
2. travel, travel, travel
3. donate to ankylosing spondylitis charity to help find a cure
4. buy a house on the beach
5. buy lots of materialistic things just keeping it real, people

Places I have lived:
Kansas, Texas, California

Jobs I have had:
1. Disneyland – its really NOT the happiest place on earth
2. Bank Teller – even been in a robbery before. Trust me its not like the movies.
3. Market & Advertising executive assistant – just a fancy title for CEO’s bitch
4. Ophthalmologist assistant- one prerequisite of the job is that you had to know how to spell ophthalmologist so its burned into my brain
5. Veterinarian/Surgical assistant

Peeps I want to know more about:
1. Nikki
2. April
3. Leigh
4. Caitlin
5. Holly

So… about the rules? Rules are meant to be broken! No one ever got famous by following the rules so I hope all the bloggers I tagged read my blog b/c I am kinda lazy and don’t really wanna clutter up their blog with a comment to tell them I tagged them. Also if you don’t wanna do it, no worries, I’ll just take you off any future tagging lists. Its all good. (Except Nikki b/c we got that ob-blog-ation thing going. LOL)

Stay tuned for my Cupcake Hero entry… (as soon as I think of it!)



  1. I still disagree with you on Disneyland. That was one of my most fav jobs ever. I was a DCA chick though and highly compensated so that may have swayed my feelings :)

  2. BB, I was in merchandising, basically I folded the same tshirt in the Emporium for 8 hours. Not fun. But I was able to work in the splash mountain photo a couple times. Now *that* was fun! I’ve seen every body part imaginable… LOL

  3. Awww, CB, you are such a sweetheart! I’m happy someone did the meme! Oh yeah, and I totally broke the rules and didn’t leave comments that people were tagged and I only listed three people. Heehee.

  4. TANYA, you rebel… haha

  5. hmm..i just ‘stumbled’ upon your website and am now positively frothing for some baked goodies. lurrrve your blog.

    the ice cream cupcakes are calling me like a siren. am i really going to have to bake some cupcakes today? it appears to be the case.

  6. CURLY, aaawww thanks for your compliments! I hope you do bake them! I am in love with these new dual desserts. Come back and let me know what you think! :)

  7. Meme done :) Now see what a good taggee I am?

  8. CAITLIN, w00t! ::off to read::

  9. I seem to have cupcake block too..I’ve got a yummy idea for the new cupcake challenge…but it’s cupcakes that only ‘I’ would eat…not my Hubby or my brother (who stays with us on weekends and is the snickerdoodle cuppie snarfer!).
    You lived in Kansas?! I’m a Mo girl…can’t say I really love it…but eh..midwest..woot woot! haha!
    Mommy life is good..if you click my 3 years in the making link you can see pics of my little Maddie-cake!

  10. SUZY, ooohhhh bake up your cupcake idea! I am still working out some thoughts for CH but for some reason this month is a doozy. I think cocoa is just really easy to incorporate so you could do so many things and sometimes too many options is bad for me! I think its hilarious that your brother loves those snickerdoodles. Isn’t that frosting to-die-for? Its one of my favorites. Yes, I was born in Kansas but we only lived there for 3 years so I don’t remember much but… ::high five for midwest girls:: ps. OMG. Look at those cheeks!! I just wanna pinch them. She’s such a beautiful baby… Congratulations Mommy Suzy! :)

  11. come on CB…I come over to see your Hero entry and all I get is this????? ;)

  12. MARA, EEK! I think I forfeit after seeing yours… ;)

  13. can’t wait for your cupcake hero entry!
    ;) all the best.

  14. KHOO, pressure pressure. HAHA! Hopefully I have a few ideas that will come together in the last minute before the deadline. ::crossing fingers::

  15. oooh ideas!!! ….no forefeiting allowed in cupcake hero!

  16. MARA, haha. I am not sure what happened but this month totally flew by. It never takes me this long to come up with ideas. We’ll see what I end up with… stay tuned.

  17. I am curios, where do you buy your cupcake holders? And do they work better than the usuall ones we all use?

  18. NATALIE, They are called party nut cups or souffle cups depending on where you buy them. I buy my 3-1/4oz souffle cups at Smart&Final, 250/$5. I wouldn’t say “better” is the right word but I would say economical b/c I bake cupcakes so much. I do like that they are more rigid than regular cupcakes liners so I can bake more than 12 at a time since I do not need a cupcake/muffin pan. I just put them on a baking sheet. HTH!

  19. The only cupcake that I know is Jose Reyes from the Mets. Chase Utley is going to chew him up! Go Phightins . . . . .

  20. PHANATIC, I wish I could say I know who you are talking about but I am a basketball not baseball fan. Don’t hurt me! ;)
