Happy 100th Post!

This is my 100th post on this blog! Ohmigosh! In celebration of this momentous event, I plan to make Funfetti cupcakes this evening. Nothing says celebration like rainbow-colored sprinkles in my cupcakes! Huzzah! But seriously, let's talk about Funfetti for a minute...

Just look at that deliciousness! I know Funfetti screams "7-year-old birthday party" but I don't care. I don't need fancy creme brulee to keep me happy, all I need is a tasty cupcake that looks like sprinkles are baked into the magic!

Moving on from my Ode to Funfetti, I'd like to make this 100th post a happy helping of things that have been on my mind lately. (I originally thought of listing 100 things I love, or 100 favorite foods, but let's be realistic. I don't have that kind of time. I've got Funfetti cupcakes to make tonight!

To begin, I have a serious crush on David Tennant (The 10th doctor on the BBC series Doctor Who). Bob introduced me to Doctor Who shortly after we got married. I gotta be honest here, I was hesitant to accept this crazy television show. The first doctor, Christopher Eccleston, just didn't catch my fancy. But as soon as Mr. Tennant became The Doctor, I became VERY interested in this show. I mean, just look at this:

 [Wolf Howl] Soooooo good looking! Talk about delicious! Mmm!

Is it crazy that I actually get giddy when I watch him? I haven't had a TV crush since J.T.T (ya know, Jonathan Taylor Thomas? I definitely crushed on him when I was a tween)! This is big stuff, folks. He and his Doctor Who costar, Catherine Tate will be performing together in Much Ado About Nothing May-August of this year and I would LOVE to go. I'm pretty sure I'd be like a pre-teen at a Justin Bieber concert if I went to this play. Do you think I could convince Bob to take me? I'm not so sure about that one. Not only are we on the lower-income side of things with both of us being in school, but this show is at the Wyndham's Theater in London. Did you catch that? London. Yeah...I definitely don't think we can afford a trip overseas.

...but a girl can dream, can't she?

Puh-puh-puh-puhlease take me to see him, Bob!

Okay, okay, enough of me gushing about my celebrity crush (though there's no guaranteeing that I won't mention it in the future). Let's move on to another topic:

They are everywhere! My life has been overcome by a baby explosion! And no, I am not pregnant and won't be for a while, but it sure seems like everyone around me is. Don't get me wrong, I'm very exciting for all my family and friends that are welcoming new little ones into their lives, but it's bugging me a little. Why? 'Cause I want one. I know it's not an ideal time for Bob and I to bring an [adorable] child into this world, but that doesn't change the fact that I've got babies on my mind. I'm getting tired of school really fast (hey, I've been going to classes almost every semester since Fall 2005!). I'm ready to have a house (or at least a slightly bigger place). I'm ready for a career. I'm ready to move to the next phase in my life (AKA no more school). I'm pretty sure Bob and I will have pretty babies. If they look anything like my cute niece, then we're golden:

Can you believe that this picture hasn't been retouched? I swear it looks like she should be advertising for Baby Gap or something! But alas, no babies for us until we are done with school. I can't even imagine how I would take care of the little one while being in school. I'll just have to be patient.

Next topic! I've been thinking a lot lately how I wish I were different that I am.
I wish I were more crafty. Then I could whip up some fantastic home decor and have a wonderfully fun and fresh living room! I could take some of my old clothes that I never wear and re purpose them into something new and fun. I frequent the Make It and Love It website and covet all the fun projects she puts up...[sigh] if only I had the time and talent to be a super cool crafter.

I wish I had a better singing voice so I could audition for some local plays. I really miss acting. I haven't been in a play since the Spring of 2005. Sadness. I always had so much fun performing in shows with my friends, but now it seems like you need to sing in your audition. I'm just not that secure with my singing voice to go out and introduce the world to my not-so-awesome voice. Sadness.

Speaking of things that I miss, I really miss dancing, too. Dancing was my life growing up. I remember dancing almost every day when I was on Cottonwood High's Dance Company. Sure, it was tough, but it was so much fun! I wish I could find some company to join, just for fun. (Plus, I could definitely benefit from the exercise)!
Well, I think this post is long enough for you all to stumble through. I cannot believe this is my 100th post. Have I really had that much to say? I suppose so. Until next time, you stay classy, Internet.

I can't believe you didn't use funfetti frosting!! That's the best part! YUM! Congrats on your 100 posts--very impressive. I'm glad you've kept it up. We need to hang out sometime. You should come visit me someday--I am less than a five minute walk away from your school, so you have no excuses!

Priscilla I too love David Tennant! Isn't he the best!? He's awesome. You should watch some of his BBC work, fantastic. Also he might be in The Hobbit. Fingers crossed.

I completely understand Cilla. There are people we went to high school with who are pregnant with #3. It's like, um, share?
