I know I’ve been a bit MIA lately, but I’ve been working on a top secret project. Read at the bottom for a little more info, though I’m not spilling the beans just yet!
This weekend was quite the blur with so many things going on. I had to work on Saturday morning, through torrential rain and a trip from a plumber because we had a back-up and things weren’t looking pretty. Then, there was fashion week, a bachelorette party, macaroons at 2am, and all this before Sunday (ok so I guess the macaroon part was technically on Sunday, but you know what I mean).
Luckily for me, the rain on Saturday moved a picnic I wouldn’t have otherwise been able to attend to Sunday. Woohoo! I was really excited when I heard about a local food blogger get-together. You know I love my bloggie outings. This one was with a whole new group of blog friends – the Charlotte Food Bloggers – a group organized by Julie (my roommate from Foodbuzz!) and Taylor.
We met up at a local park here in Charlotte, NC.
The storm passing left beautiful weather on Sunday.
The best part of getting together with food bloggers – lots of yummy eats!
We chatted lightly before getting to business.
And we did our usual bloggie things – taking pictures of food…
…eating. You know. The good stuff!
I loved how Julie brought this quilt-style blanket for the picnic. It made for a great tablecloth.
My sweet plate – a banana coconut cream cupcake by Julie, a chocolate banana sunflower butter blondie by Katie, and a chocolate malt cookie by Martha.
As you probably guessed, everything was amazing! I was so full. I couldn’t quite fit a bite of everyone’s food, but I sure tried my hardest!
And we even had a guest visit from the Southern Cake Queen.
We even got to take a peek inside the truck.

Ooh and I got a free chocolate cupcake sample to take home.
Big thanks to Julie and Taylor for organizing the fun picnic!
Then there was another secret project. Gah! I forgot I did two in one day!
Don’t worry friends, all will be revealed soon! One sooner than the other, but hopefully soon enough.
I ended up saving my cupcake from the Southern Cake Queen for much later in the day. I actually split it with hubby. The cake was nice and most and I really liked the icing, too. Great cupcake! And you guys know I’m a bit of a cupcake connoisseur. haha jk
