Help! I'm bored with my blog. Yes, again.
You see, I get tired of certain things very easily (thankfully not the things that count, like my boyfriend or chocolate), and I've been getting kinda sick of looking at the same blog, as pretty as it is (I love my bloggy designer, Daniella!).
So I am considering getting a bloggy makeover, possibly even a new design. One of the new design sites (new to me) I've been liking lately is Rainy Day Template. I really like her designs, particularly Penelope, Emmeline, and Madeleine. Out of those 3, which do you like best? I'm leaning toward Penelope, methinks...
I've also been doing some thinking regarding this blog's features. I don't think I'm going to get rid of my monthly favorites lists, as they're loads of fun to write, but I'm unsure if I want to keep posting weekly Lolcats. What do you think, bloggy readers? Would you mind seeing the Lolcats go the way of the dodo (poor dodos -- what did you ever do other than possess a silly name)?
I kind of want to start new bloggy features, like discussions ... and picture of the week ... and other stuff that I'm still cooking in my brain. Hmm, food for thought.
In other news, and speaking of food, last week I was in search of the best red velvet cupcake in town (town being South Florida). I had never tried one before, so I wanted to make it into a quest of sorts. First I tried the one at Starbucks, which came in its own little box and everything. Behold...
My final verdict? It was pretty much underwhelming -- stale and bland.
Then Ricky took me to this cupcake store in Coral Gables called Buttercream. I had never been there in person before, though Ricky once brought home a vanilla cupcake for me. It was scrumptious! But how would their red velvet cupcake taste? If its appearance meant anything, it sure seemed promising...
Final verdict? It was the best red velvet cupcake I have ever had, which I know is not saying much because it's only the second one I've ever had, but still ... I don't think I'll find one better, at least not in South Florida. It was fluffy and rich and creamy, without being overpowering. It's a delicate balance, achieving the right mixture of lightness and creaminess in a cupcake, but I think Buttercream does a pretty damn good job.
So yep, that's my life right now. I'm looking forward to renting "Up in the Air" today with Ricky -- never got a chance to see it in the theaters! What's new with you? Let me know in the comments!
Don't forget to let me know your favorite bloggy template from the 3 above, and whether or not I should keep the Lolcats around. And while you're at it, why don't you tell me what your favorite cupcake flavor is. :)
