Game of Thrones Cookies: Khaleesi's Dragon Nests

It's great that the government gave us a long weekend to celebrate the new season of Game of Thrones. I guess that whole Easter thing plays a factor here too. But, really, I think I'll be too worried about who may or may not bite the big one in the first episode to think about chocolate bunnies. Seriously, if they kill [spoiler] and [spoiler] too early, I will have a melt down.

In case it hasn't come across to you, our household is pretty excited over this show. Mr. C is especially pumped. And by "especially pumped" I mean he's re-read the entire series (which, if you've seen the size of those things, is no small feat). I haven't touched the books, but I have picked up rumours of all the death and destruction that goes on in those things. I'm still hoping that John Snow sails over to the other side of the world, sweeps Daenerys off her feet, and rides into the sunset on a dragon. And then makes really pretty babies together.

Mr. C keeps trying to tell me that doesn't happen. Whatevs.

The Littlest She-Hulk Green Velvet Cupcakes

It's been six months since something sugary and floury has popped out of my oven. What have I been doing instead of cutting out cookies and frosting cupcakes, you ask?
  1. Lifting heavy things and putting them back down. A lot
  2. Adapting my eating habits to suit my exercise routine. Goodbye veganism, hello meat
  3. Trying not to let my teaching career drive me absolutely nuts
  4. Running in my first races. First 5ks then, just for the hell of it, a 10k 
  5. Fully embracing the full extent of my nerdiness
Let's talk about that last point. But, I warn you. It's really nerdy. Like, embarrassingly so.
