Gnome, gnome on the range

Am I traveling this summer to explain my absence? No. Just busy with school, homework and guests.

My sister, niece, nephew and parents visited this week. The time flew by too fast. I wrangled all the unwilling guests into making a cupcake gnome to match my sister's traveling gnome. The small gnome took in many Colorado Springs tourist sites then landed on our range ... "gnome, gnome on the range" before returning home.

I hope to return to a normal schedule soon, but am enjoying a summer of randomness.

Please grab a cupcake for yourself. Due to the lighting, one can't tell the "jersey shore" tanned skin tone. They won't last long as my son is a cupcake fiend. Enjoy your day.

  1. That is a neat cupcake! Thanks for the update! I was just thinking about you this morning (wonder why ;)) It's good to relax every once in a while, especially when you've been working as hard as you have! I say enjoy the randomness while you can!

  2. Keep enjoying your summer. The blogosphere will still be here when you get back to your routine. I'm having the same problem - too many fun distractions!

  3. Gnome on the range! Haha! Enjoy your summer. The average person only gets 80 or so each lifetime. Live it up!

    1. Hannah, when you say it like that ... "only 80" seems very limiting.

  4. You are a cupcake whiz! Maybe you should go on cupcake wars with one of those unwilling family members :)

  5. Love the cupcake. I bet Heather Gardner would love this post, too. Her website features her gnome, Stormy. http://hmgardner.blogspot.com/

    Enjoy your summer Stacy. In my opinion, the summer needs to be two months longer.

  10. Hey, Stacy! Sounds like you are having a busy summer. That cupcake gnome looks too cute to eat.

    On second thought ... (yum, yum, yum!)

  14. That is one epic cupcake. Imagine a troll or orc, maybe a dwarf or an elf, and there could be a serious cupcake battle in your kitchen. :)
