These cupcakes are in honor of mommy-to-be Melissa and daddy-to-be Chris Brown...my neice and nephew-in-law, from New Market, New Hamphire. They came down this weekend and visited my mom and I went down to Prince Frederick to hang out with them. Melissa has three months to go and I just had to see them! We had such a ball.
I brought cupcakes, because that's what I do! I found the babies at Michaels and I loaded the cupcakes up with frosting and used some chewey life savers as life preservers in the frosting.
Now back to the visit: first we...Mom, Melissa, Chris and Jimmy (their best man who now lives in Fairfax, Va) went to dinner at a restaurant on Solomon's Island called Stoneys, which was awesome. They make the best Gold Margaritas! But, the fun part began when we hit Vera's White Sands Beach Club. Here's a story about the past of Vera's the way it used to be. Vera sold her place in 2006. This is a story in the Washington Post. We had a couple of drinks, danced a dance on the way out and headed home to my Mom's house. The first stop in the morning was to be in honor of Bob Evans. YES! What a weekend!
We hit Bob's around 8:45 a.m. Sunday morning. Here's what I ordered in Bob's honor: scrambled eggs, grits, bacon, two hotcakes with honey, a biscuit and a diet coke. I found out that my Mom goes there so often that the waiter didn't even have to ask her what she wanted. He called out her order (completely) before the words were out of her mouth. The picture above is my Mom, mommie-to-be Melissa, and Chris. We had the funniest discussion about the baby's name, which I firmly believe could be Vera Beverly Linda Sparky Brown!
These cupcakes were French Vanilla cakemix, Creamy vanilla Pillsbury Frosting and plastic babies from Michaels!
Enjoy and Rock On! And, if you see Melissa and Chris, say hi!
