Busy or lazy? You decide....

Courtesy of Cakespy

Dear 'four-and-a-half-readers-that-read-my-little-musings',
I am so sorry that I have been somewhat absent from The Sour and The Sweet. I have been busy (ok, lazy?) and have not had a chance to post a legitimate update. I promise to soon tell you all about 'La Soiree' in San Francisco with my friend Cocodoodle; the Hand Born Craft Fair the day after Thanksgiving with a stop at my favorite restaurant, Tresetti's; and my missed opportunity to sail around Greece this summer with my brother (that last one might be a depressing entry). Give me some time and I promise that I will get it together. Hopefully before the new year. In the meantime enjoy some Xtina Aguilera (just because I like spelling her name that way) and the latest from Hyperbole and a Half (those that find this as hysterical as I do can be my best friend forever). Oh and food for thought? IS pie the new cupcake? Maybe so....

Sensing Sunday: November 14, 2010

This is my mom's new pup. Welcome to the family Milo!

What I am:

Hearing: 'Things Have Changed'--Bob Dylan on Mad Men Radio via Pandora Radio.

Seeing: Ace of Cakes on the Food Network.

Smelling: A cup of Trader Joe's Wintry Blend coffee, my favorite.

Tasting: Leftover Garlic Chicken and Luck Chow Mein from Lucky House.

Feeling: Crafty. I am thinking of going to the fabric store if it still open. I have some ideas brewing up in my noggin. I also told G that I would look for some vintage fabric that he found locally and used in his collection. I better get a move on.

Happy Sunday!

The Only Living Boy in New York

Shhhh...don't tell the Mr. but I am in love with Ryan Jones (K. Ryan Jones for professional and pretentious reasons). If you aren't reading The Only Living Boy in New York here are the top 5 reasons you should be.

Reason #5:
He talks to his brother Garrett the same way I talk to my brother. Exhibit A and Exhibit B.
Regrettably, I could not find a pic of my brother and I from when we were kids stored on my computer. Hasbro's My Buddy and Kid Sister will have to make do. Fun fact though, my brother TOTALLY had a My Buddy doll. We gave him several haircuts and took a magic marker to his face. Fun times!

Reason #4:
He is HILARIOUS on Facebook.


Reason #2:
(not to be outdone by my own Pup)

...and the number 1 reason to LOVE The Only Living Boy in New York...

His unfailing love for all things Mad Men (a man after my own heart)
The best being this...
...and his claim to fame. I found this mentioned on amctv.com a few months back. It was love at first sight. 
I wish that I could spread the love more but I only have a total readership of about 4 and a half people. Sorry K. Ry.

PS. Oh. my. god! THIS is like the time Davy Jones was on the Brady Bunch and I am Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!

Sensing Sunday: November 7, 2010

What I am:

Hearing: 'To Be With You'-The Honey Trees (semi-local band out of Sacramento, CA)

Seeing: The rain washing the world away. 

Smelling: 'Burberry Brit' It reminds me of a gin and tonic and is perfectly crisp and hearty for fall.

Tasting: Microwavable meatloaf and mashed potatoes....yummy?

Feeling: Exhausted. It has been a very emotionally draining week for me. Still have hope that things might get better. Always have hope.

Hello Naomi!

I can't tell you how excited I am about this particular blog. I fell in love with Hello Naomi's simple and sweet cake and cupcake design when I stumbled upon her flickr account a couple of years ago. She is the one that made me want to design and decorate cupcakes. She was my very first inspiration and that planted the seed...now she has a blog?!?! Too good to be true. Check it out.
