We hosted the youth fireside here on Sunday night. It was ironic that it was the first one I’ve attended in this ward, since I was released from being 1st Counselor in YW a couple of weeks ago. I had that calling for almost 2 years. Hm.

But anyway, it was a great evening. I’ve been missing my homegirls so it was fun to hang out. I even made a new recipe for the occasion: banana chocolate chip cupcakes with honey cinnamon frosting. The cupcakes were nothing to write home about, but that frosting was intriguing. I highly recommend you whip some up and spread it on something (preferably not meatloaf). Here is the recipe:

1 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
1 stick unsalted butter, room temp
1 T honey
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon

I made them on Saturday, and on Sunday morning was studying them while I ate breakfast. I came to the conclusion that with the chocolate chip on top of each cupcake, they strongly resembled breasts. See what you think:

But I served them anyway. Hopefully no one else’s mind went there. Perhaps I should have made brownies?

Travis delivered a great message, complete with music, a couple of movies, and slide show all projected on our wall. It was fantastic. I had minimal input; just told a story or two. I was mostly there for moral support.

My favorite part of the fireside was the next day, when Trav called me from work. He was wondering how many youth had called to tell me that their lives had been forever changed by his awesome fireside.

I made some cupcakes one time that had a cherry on top--I thought the same thing.

I always think my light fixtures look like breasts. They drive me crazy.

The cupcakes look delightful

after the fireside you should have just had everyone go around in a circle and say their favorite thing about Travis and how he has changed their life. I wish I had more opportunities to do that myself. I always hate for him to be left wondering.

I love you guys!

I have been working on flyers for our r.s. birthday enrichment and spent HOURS looking for the perfect cupcake that wasn't shaped too similar to a breast when using the outline. Glad I am not alone here with the similar images.

WOW! I feel so much more normal b/c I've always thought how my breasts look like cupcakes!
