It’s my birthday today! Wahoooo! Of course, the doctor just diagnosed me with walking pneumonia, so you know, that’s awesome. ;) Regardless of being sickly, I plan on stuffing myself with every sweet in sight. Because, you know, it’s my birthday and I can!


In honor of my birthday week, Ellie and I made some Sweet Tooth Fairy chocolate cupcakes (mmmm!) and a video! I let her eat some of the chocolate pudding we used in the batter and boy oh boy, she went to town! She loved it to say the least! (All you super clean moms out there are going to have a heart attack, Ellie was a complete mess by the end, along with the entire kitchen! :) Hooray for birthdays!!!

And of course, before I forget, a recipe!
