"Can you even match my keyboard to my dress?"

Remember this post? Well, a while back I was actually gifted this keyboard by some very generous friends of ours. (Thanks Liz!) Well, I finally got around to hooking up to my keyboard and it makes me so happy. I feel like I need a new, white monitor to match. This thing really is amazing.

Boozy Cupcakes

Although Chris is the chef in this relationship, sometimes I come across recipes that sound far too delectable not to try. (Especially one that involves 3 different types of alcohol.) In this case, my BFF Stephanie mentioned these treats in passing and I had to give them a go.

Guiness and butter: The start of a beautiful friendship.

I've got a golden tiiiiicket! Also, a bar of chocolate.

Fresh out of the oven!
Holes for the whiskey chocolate ganache filling. 
You know you wanna.

Bailey's Irish Cream frosting. (Chris said it looked like larva. YUM!)
