Ode to Sprinkles Cupcakes

Oh Sprinkles Cupcakes. 

While my mom was here in town (see next post for pics of our fab time!) we spent a day in Dallas. We hit Sam Moon, of course. And we also spent some considerable time @ the Galleria. It was my first trip to the Galleria, and I have to say that NorthPark is a much better mall. I digress. The highlight of the day was making a trip to Sprinkles. All the hype is true. I had never had a Sprinkles until that day and it was well worth the hour drive there and home. It was perfection. And so, in honor of the Sprinkles cupcakes that we devoured, here's a poem. (dont make fun of my poetry skills!)

Oh Sprinkles cupcakes, you are so fair.
I gobble you down without a care
Flavors so delicious, you are easy to eat
Such rich cake and icing, you're hard to beat.

Strawberry, coconut, chocolate marshmallow
Cinnamon sugar is easy to swallow
Lemon, vanilla and red velvet cake,
two, no three, no FOUR I'll take!

Oh, why, dear Dallas are you so far?
It takes an hour at least if not more
I guess it's best for me to be so far away
Otherwise, 25 more pounds I'd weigh!!!

tadaaaaaaa  :)

I would totally suggest making a trip to Sprinkles if there is one nearby. What a well spent $13. 

Now, onto books. Doing so much driving back & forth to San Antonio has given me ample time to read and enjoy some new books; check them out!!!

Just Finished:

Turned out to be pretty good; I am enjoying this author more and more. It's a lighthearted read with some funny moments, some serious moments, and a few unexpected twists! A little crude in places, similar to Swapping Lives. The story is much deeper than simply what you can read on the cover, which was unexpected, but happily received. There are some other books by this author that catch my interest and may make the list in the near future!

Now reading:

I started this book at the recommendation of my mom. She'd brought it with her to read on the plane and enjoyed it. I loaned her My Sister's Keeper, and she loaned me 5 people. So far, it's been enjoyable. The author is very descriptive, painting mental pictures of what's going on in the story. I wouldnt classify it as a Christian Fiction novel, regardless of what the subject matter is. 

Up Next: ???????
It's time to throw in a non-fiction, build me up, make me smarter, harder-to-get-through book! I dont know what it'll be yet, but we've got every book John Piper has written (or so it seems.), several John MacArthur, some Stanley, a little of this and a little of that. Any suggestions for a good, Christian non-fiction read? I have some ideas for the next few fiction books- those are always so much easier to make time for, it seems. I told Jordan when we started here @ SWBTS, that I'd be reading lots right along with him. With a huge library right at my fingertips, i've been very bad at reading the things I should be reading, and very good at reading the things I shouldn't.  Alas, I am a sucker for chick-lit. I can hardly turn down a good page-turner. 

Current song stuck in my head: Way back into Love (from the Music & Lyrics soundtrack!)
