Buttons, Buttons, Buttons

Vintage buttons make me happy :] These are really cute! I love the pink ones (of course). I will have a biding war on these on e-bay. We'll see who wins. I'm going to go antiquing this weekend too on Summer to see if I can find more buttons. I just got into sewing. I made an artsy clutch from the book Bend the Rules Sewing, and I need vintage buttons to close them. I've looked at new buttons, but they just aren't as great!

World's Largest Cupcake???

Mmm...Hmm...(photo courtesy of standing still)

BLOOMINGTON – Bakers at the Mall of America were successful in making the world's largest cupcake Sunday .
The World's Largest Bake Sale was put on by the non-profit group Share Our Strength. The organization wants to encourage people from across America to end childhood hunger by raising money through bake sales.
Food Network's "Ace of Cakes" Duff Goldman and his crew undertook the challenge of making the world's largest cupcake.
"Just the frosting alone took 16 pounds of butter, 10 pounds of sugar, and 3 oz. of food coloring," Goldman said. -courtesy of MyFOX

I finished the whole trail!

The Tour de Wolf Trail: Shelby Farms...6.7 miles!!!
I actually finished the trail! I am so proud of myself! If you would have asked me if I ever thought I would Mountain Bike 6.7 miles I would have said you're CRAZY!!! It was so hard! I cussed out Scott the whole time, haha! (Had to put that in there for you Scott if ur reading). He put up with my complaints, and waited on my slow ass. He said I'm going to have to get new brakes every time I ride because I ride the brakes the whole time. I am not fearless at all. Never really realized how fearful I am. Kinda sucks!!! Today I am so sore!!! I ran into a tree on my right shoulder-it's got a bunch of little bruised dots. Then I fell over on a bridge into a ditch-which scraped my leg up. I wanted to cry but didn't. It didn't hurt, I was just exhaused! I'm so outta shape! I can't wait to do it again though :]
