Cupcake Confections Among Other Things

What is so special about March 29th?!?! It seemed like everyone and their mother had something planned on March 29th and I can't figure out why for the life of me. Most of my weekends are spent at home or doing a little local shopping so when I found a couple of events that I wanted to attend I got a bit excited. Well more than a bit. I got really excited. But that excitement quickly turned to sadness which then turned to anger which then turned into disappointment which is the state I'm in as I write this post. Instead of hopping from event to event across the state of Tennessee I went grocery shopping, got my eyebrows waxed (which gets #7 crossed off the list), and attended a cupcake competition, which is where those delicious cupcakes pictured above are from. So for the sake of my sanity and in hopes of making myself feel better, I am going to tell you all about my would-have-been but never-were Saturday plans.

Cher Lloyd was in Nashville, guys! As in CHER LLOYD was in NASHVILLE, less than a hundred miles away from me, singing her heart out to hundreds of adoring fans. If only you knew how much I want to hear Cher Lloyd sing to me. If only...

And to the east of me on Saturday morning was an open house at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I get incredibly obsessive and worrisome when it comes to colleges and careers and missing this open house is just another thing to add to my college and career planning screw ups list. (Thank God that list doesn't actually exist).

It also just happened to be the opening weekend for my school's production of Les Miserables. I had been looking forward to Les Mis ever since they announced it would be the spring production and to not see it with my friends was like taking the icing off of the cake. Regardless, it was amazing and I cried throughout the entire Sunday afternoon performance.

Soccer season was supposed to start on Saturday. But thanks to the spring rain, all the games I was scheduled to referee were canceled. Yay for not having to work; boo for not getting paid!

Okay, now I feel a little bit better. Partly because I finally organized all my sad, anti-weekend plans thoughts and partly because you actually read them. It's like blogger therapy.
