cinnamon buns, cupcakes, vampires & a broken stop sign

hello friends.
*yesterday my mom and i went to pick out our christmas tree. in preparation for the trimming and christmas tree night, i decided to bake cinnamon buns and cupcakes today. our cupcake tins were with my good friend who lives a few minutes away by car and i insisted that i drove.
bad fricking idea. i have NEVER backed out of our drive away. and for some reason today, i forgot which was the brake pedal and which was the acceleration.
i backed up against the stop sign. but at that moment i thought i rammed into our neighbor's garage.
it was all going so fast: john talking so loudly and my little sister telling me to stop and me frantically trying press on the pedals, only to break the sign.
*i have finally given in to the whole twilight craze and decided to buy a previously viewed copy at blockbuster. i must have watched it 5 times this weekend. i love edward. i wish i had a vampire boyfriend (kidding, john). i was giggling throughout the movie and it felt like high school all over again: waiting to see your crush of all crushes, blushing when he notices you. harhar.
*i also watched brothers bloom. i highly recommend it (and rachel weisz's wardrobe). i have a new girly crush on adrien brody. and if you like him there, you should watch him in darjeeling limited.
*had lobster in its purest form today (meaning, not lobster bisque or lobster cakes. lobster straight out of its crustacean case). it's not as rubbery as i had expected it to be. i had it with vinegar, garlic powder and salt instead of butter.
* baking cinnamon buns reminded me of my high school job working at st. cinnamon. those were great times. besides learning how to bake buns i learned how to get a backbone. i got the recipe here. it was my first time working with yeast and seeing the dough rise twice its size was absolutely fascinating.
and that is all. i hope everyone had a good weekend with minimal damage. :)

it's a good thing it was only a stop sign.

These photos are making my mouth water...and oh yes, there's so something about Edward. I went to see Twilight 21 times all told (must have been some issue resolving itself, lol) and was open to becoming a Jacob fan for New Moon...but it was not to be. Team Edward forever! Glad to hear you weren't hurt in the car incident.
