Fabulous Friday Giveaway & Sweet Tooth Part 4

Yesterday, I mentioned that I was going for a run, no matter what the weather had in store for me. Well, I got lucky. It was nice and sunny, but the winds were a little crazy. They weren't the absurd 50 mph, like we had the day before, but they were blowing. I only went for a 3 mile run, because my stomach has been acting funking lately. The run seemed more difficult than the 6 miles I ran last week.. 

To finish off Sweet Week, here is a picture of some red velvet cupcakes I made for Valentine's Day. I loved the butter cream frosting, but the cupcake itself didn't turn out that great. If it didn't have the frosting, it would have been so plain, I would have cried. It look pretty though.

The wonderful people at LaraBar have offered to giveaway some of their yummy bars. We're celebrating that they were featured on The Biggest Loser the other night! Click here to see the clip. One lucky (sorry US residents only) winner will win 2 Peanut Butter Cookie and 2 Cherry Pie LaraBars. I love the Cherry Pie flavor! I think that must be my favorite, so far.

What's your favorite flavor of cupcakes? I'm always looking for new ideas to make.


  1. I stumbled across your blog searching for races in the Sacramento area. Based on your races I assume you live around here? I just moved so it's nice to see a local blog :)

    One of my favorite cupcakes is chocolate mint, but there are some awesome cookies and cream recipes out there too.

    P.S. I followed you and liked you on FB!

  2. The wind was pretty bad last week. Hopefully it'll calm down so running won't be such a struggle!

    It's spring, so I'm thinking lighter flavors like key lime or mojito cupcakes.
