-Today I took cupcakes to a few different offices. I went to this place called Muddy's in Memphis. It is located off of Sanderlin for you local folks. These cupcakes were ridiculous. The chocolate on chocolate are called Prozac. How appropriate. I went to the counter and tried to order 4 dozen. They told me the limit was 36. WHAT?! I am in the wrong business. There were probably 15 people behind me ordering, too.
-I am having a hard time giving up all carbs. I do really well with some things, but when it comes to macaroni or garlic bread, mmmmm not-so-much.
-My cousin's (the cousin who got married in June-you all remember the 5,000 pictures I posted-ha!) father-in-law, Lonnie Bailey, filmed scenes as an extra in "The Help" this week in Greenwood, Mississippi. He played a postal clerk. How fun is that? I love to hear that they cast all the locals. If you haven't red The Help by Kathryn Stockett, you should pick it up. It is a great read.
-I told y'all this post was random. Don't you LOVE Barbara Jean on Reba? She cracks me up! I think this is a really funny show! I also love The Cosby Show and Everybody Loves Raymond. Why aren't sitcoms funny anymore? I love the re-runs. But NOTHING tops my Golden Girls!
-Speaking of TV, I watched The Bachelorette Tell All last night. I am pulling for Chris. He is HAWT and would make a great husband! I also like Roberto. She has two great choices!!! However, I think the proposals are ridiculous. That takes the cheese to a whole new level!
-Another show I LOVE is Jersey Couture! Hilarious! Do the Booty Bop Bop BOP!!!

I am about to embrace on the Disney planning for October. Griffin is going to stay here with his Grammy and Pappy, so it will just be me, Stephen, and the princess. Trying to figure out what resort makes me want to break out in hives. Planning for Disney is very overwhelming. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! We are just going for three nights, so not very long. But still! LOTS and LOTS to decide on!!
