For the most part... I stuck to my eating plan for today. YIPPEE!!! What a treat.  My cupcake was super yummy!! Check out the recipe below!

Well I must say... Matthew's birthday was a success!! He was soo excited and had such a blast! It was a decent amount of work decorating & baking cupcakes but his excitement & joy make it all worth it. Here are a few pictures from his big day! We got him a remote control monster truck & he was sooo excited. He's actually still driving it around the hotel room as I type from the LaQuinta Inn! :)

Isn't he such a cutie pie!!? Justin went & picked up Josie so she is being my best bud & sitting right next to me. I'm glad she forgave me after I gave her a bath today. (She's not a fan of baths) Plus, I think she missed me today. <3 

I had to add the one of the left cuz it cracked me up! :D Today has been such a great day. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I thank God everyday for putting them in my life. :) Hope you had as great of a Saturday as I did!!! Time to go color with my little man!
