Baking With The Faeh's

We have cupcake fever at Barista's this fall.
They are selling like crazy and I'm enjoying the practice.
I wanted to try a new recipe this weekend so I recruited Truman and Anthony to help.
The first recipe was a chocolate cake with raspberry butter cream.

I was feeling adventurous so I decided to try making vanilla chai cupcakes.
They. Were. Delicious.
Beans helped.
I'm feeling more comfortable with my baking skills.
Dare I say it's even...fun?
Yes. It's fun. Especially the end when I get to eat it.
Next project: fruit tarts.

Wish me luck.

April Come She Will

Alyssa picked me up around 6:50 to go see a movie.
When we got to the mall, she drove to the front of the entrance instead of parking which I thought was weird. My sister, Kali, comes running into the car and blindfolds me.
I wasn't thrilled about riding in a car with a blindfold but I that it was finally time for Truman to propose so I sucked it up.

We drove around from 7pm - 8pm. 1 HOUR.
Sharon was coming from Lincoln and wanted to be there. So it was worth it :)

They took me back to the park where Truman and I had our first date. When I got out of the car, they took off my blindfold and gave me this journal that Truman and I had written our story in a long time ago.
He had a flower marking the page that I was supposed to turn to and read.
It was beautiful. It made me realize how lucky I am to have found such a wonderful man who loves God and who, for some reason, loves me.
Anyway, the last sentence said "now, under the tree I am waiting for you and I have a question to ask you"

Obviously I wanted to make a dead sprint for the tree, but I walked calmly for the sake of pictures.

He asked. I said yes. We're engaged!

We're young. Who cares? We're both in school, we'll be poor as dirt for a while, but there is not one doubt in my mind that we are ready to start living our lives together.

I have so much to learn and I can't wait to learn it all with him.
