Having plenty of coffee. Trying to stay on top of the mountain.
Silly question: When was the last time you had a cupcake?

I think it was about 2 weeks ago that I had a cupcake.

Love the boots! I was just looking at boots yesterday but couldn't find anything that I liked.

Wish I could say that I had as many Christmas presents bought as you but I only have 2.

Nicole @Team Pipkin said...

last time I had a cupcake was sunday & monday. lol
we went to a cute cupcake shop after our road trip, I got the Pinkdelicious cupcake & my daughter got the child cupcake with a StarFish ring on top. Of course she only took the ring so I ate her cupcake on Monday. I had to wait to make sure she forgot she had one. lol Oh it was yummy!

Casey said...

I ♥love♥ this post, I love your numbers, I ♥love♥love♥love♥ your boots! How did you take those pictures of the back of your boots Beki?

I haven't had a cupcake in forever, not a huge fan of them, but I did have a yummy blueberry muffin this morning!

You are awesome!

Lynn said...

Love your post today and also your boots!! It's been a looong time since I've ate a cupcake! Oh gosh, I haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet!


Toni :O) said...

Yay...I'm leaving a comment so I'll get skinny now...LOVE IT! I had a cupcake last night (okay, it was half of each flavor..it was the new Faygo pop flavor of Red Pop and Orange (since I only had a half of each that constitutes a total of one!). Faygo is a local pop made here and I have to say out of grape, orange and red, I liked orange best. I'd much rather enjoy one from a specialty store though...some I've seen look SOO good! BTW, this post was fun to read.

I haven't had a cupcake in ages!!! This post was fun!

Amy said...

I had a cupcake a few weeks ago for my son's 1st birthay...I may have to borrow this post idea from you!

Unknown said...

Tiffany said...

The last time I had a cupcake was about 2 weeks ago at my niece's birthday party.

I'm not a big fan of boots, mainly because I can never find the perfect pair that I love, but I am loving your boots!

Wendy said...

Uh-oh. More than 9 people have commented. Should we panic now? Or wait until later?

Hmmm... A cupcake... If I have to think this hard to try to remember my last one, it's clearly been too long.

Beki - TheRustedChain said...

I took my boots off to take the picture from behind them. :)

And the only reason there are more than 9 comments is because you all want to prove me wrong!

Jamie said...

I had a cupcake a few days after my kids' birthday party- we had a few left over ones and of course I took care of them for us :)

Holly said...

hmmm...number if koads if laundry I need to do- 967 (true) BTW, I love the boots! Very cute!
I had a cupcake last thursday. It was from Gigis. Do you have Gigis in Kansas? If not you should think about moving! ;)

Ruth said...

gorgeous boots!! i had an eggnog latte today too... that beats any cupcake!
i gave in to the christmas music this weekend. only the instrumental stuff mind, not singing any actual words yet, but oh it's very necessary when it gets this cold!

"Number of lbs. I've lost since exercising regularly (this time): 0" hee hee same here! :D


Amy said...

Ok, I was thinking you were like creepily double jointed or something to be able to take that picture from behind. Glad to know you just took them off. :)

fun post!
and I haven't had a cupcake in AGES.

buy me one.

Chad and Jody said...

I don't love cupcakes. When the kids bring them to school, I give them away... unless they are homemade from a family I trust. If you want to, you could make me a fantastic cupcake and then I will be able to say, "I had one delicious cupcake today!" Number of times you make me smile a week= the number of times you post. How's THAT for numbers? :)

rentz said...

Does it make me a bad person if I don't love cupcakes? Not saying I don't eat them. Just don't love them. And I do have a cupcake recipe I've been wanting to try...for the kids, of course. But I do love numbers!

jonahbonah said...

are those boots from target??? i want those!!!

Unknown said...

hey you got more than nine comments!
i had a cupcake monday at a little kids' party--it was cake inside miniature icecream cones, and the frosting on top was supposed to look like the icecream.
i could've had 2.

Martha said...

cupcake over the weekend...yes...it was vanilla bean my absolute favorite
*love the boots on you*

Unknown said...

Mmmm dark chocolate, coffee...and those boots! I'm in love! Beki..will you marry me? lol jk!!
My daughter & I made cupcakes for her birthday, for her to take to school (second day of pre-k she turned 4!) & yowsa, they were sooo yummy!! (love semi-homemade stuff---ya know..where you run out of the ingredients for a box cake & there's no enough icing in one can to ice allllll the cupcakes you made? so you add a bunch of stuff to make it right?) lol
Thanks for your post, the numbers, the boots (LURRRRVE) & the cupcakes/dark chocolate/coffee really started me off good this morning! :D
