Happy Oreo Cupcakes

DSC_0185

I’m having fun! That’s all I have to say…this single life is not THAT bad after all. Being by myself is pushing me to do more things, to be more active, to go out more, meet new people, learn new things, look at life as a precious gift that I should enjoy more instead of waisting it on things and people that, as a matter of fact, are gone!

I want to tell everybody today that Im happy and Im planning on being so for the rest of my life. Nothing and no one is worth our joy and our smiles! We worry too much about the future and remember too much about the past, yet now is the ONLY time that really exists…we all need to learn how to live in it and enjoy it more…to make each day count!

Now…after this brief lecture on life, that Im sure you  guys didnt need…but maybe I did…let’s move on and make Oreo cupcakes…shall we?

I made these delicious creamy/sweet cupcakes last Saturday when the crew of Orland To came to my house to shoot the last part of their fitness DVD.  I want to thank these guys once more…I had a blast with you all!

Now I’ll knock this off and tell you how to make these Oreo cupcakes, then I’ll shut up and go to sleep…Happy?

good…
