March is shaping up to be one of my favorite months. First off- it is National Social Work Month. I am proud to be a social worker and am thrilled to participate in the events planned at my employment. I wish there were more ways that we could recognize and acknowledge the difficult and fulfilling job that social workers have. I regret not taking the time to write Oprah and ask her to dedicate one of her "favorite things episodes" to social workers. I love that she shared one episode with teachers- another difficult job that is often under-recognized. But, trust me, social workers take the cake.....
Speaking of cake, I made some oreo cupcakes. They were delicious. I placed an oreo at the bottom of a cupcake liner, mixed up a white cake mix and topped it off with some homemade buttercream and some more oreos. And let me tell you. This butterceam was soooooo good. I will share more one it later, because I may have fulfilled my-quest-to-find-the-perfect--frosting. It was that good.
Here is a close up. And yes my iphone pictures are lacking. I would love a fancy schmancy camera so I could take pictures that would truly show how good these bad boys are. So, tooth fairy if you are reading my blog- take note. And I definitely think a root canal justifies a visit from the tooth fairy... Yep... It does.
Here are some goodies my friend and I baked up the other weekend for a cutie's first birthday.
The favor bags were adorable. Between my sister, me and my BFF I know we could take on the baking and decorating world.
But the best part of March- it means the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Bring on the sunshine!
