Halloween Cupcakes

I was feeling a little Martha Stewart today, so I decided to make some Halloween themed cupcakes. I usually make them straight out of the box, but I decided to be adventurous and made them completely from scratch. You know what? They're obviously much better than the ready mix stuff. They taste a lot fluffier and a lot less greasy than usual, they're delicious. Anyway, I got the recipe from and I thought I'd share it with you guys because it was so easy to make! I got about seventeen cupcakes in total, and it took maybe about thirty minutes in total. This is the simplest recipe I could find, it's a great project for a Sunday afternoon.

Chihuly: Utterly Breathtaking

My cousin and I had planned to go see the Chihuly exhibit at the Fine Arts Museum for ages, but we never got around to it. Luckily, when I thought my chance to see was out of the picture, they extended it! Do I need another clue? So went bought our tickets and went with a couple of friends. I had been so curious about this exhibit ever since my last trip to the museum a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know anything about the artist, but I was really looking forward to seeing his work.

Apple Picking

Over Thanksgiving weekend, my parents and I decided to go apple picking because a) I had been dying to go and b) it would be a great excuse to take a million pictures for the blog. I'm so lame, I plan out activities because they give me a reason to whip out my camera. Anyway, it was such a beautiful day, it almost didn't feel like October. The weather has been a lot colder lately, and I can't believe it was only a few weeks ago that I was talking around in a plain shirt with no coat on. We drove all the way to Mont St-Gregoire, which is about 30 minutes away from our house. We went to the Denis Charbonneau Orchard and Cidery.

Zombie Walk

I know, I'm an awful blogger. I haven't written in over a week and I would like to say it's because I've been super busy at school and work, but that would be a lie. Honestly, I've just been having one of those past couple of days where all I want to do is stay in and watch Doctor Who nonstop. I haven't felt very inspired lately, which is really disappointing. I've done quite a few things in the last few weeks, I just need to push myself and write about them. So, I'll start by the most exciting bit, and that's the Montreal Zombie Walk that happened over the weekend. I was very excited to finally go, because I couldn't attend last year.
