Not to shock you, but I can be a bit of a smartass. But so can you. Which may be why my Pinterest-friendly cupcake recipe made the rounds, despite my blog (and everyone else’s) crashing earlier in the week.

She also expressed her dislike of the word “No” in a way only she could.
I got my ass kicked by hearing a “No”, too. Your comments made it all better.
Some of my favorite tweets:
