It's IMPORTANT take a free day. I have very strong feelings about this. Today just happened to be one of those days. I indulged in 1 cup of yummy granola instead of cheerios or a protein shake but that was just a prelude to the days events.

Every girl needs a little fun with her friends and it's always great when there is some yummy food involved. Some of you may have noticed that there is a boom in cupcake specialty stores across the country. AND two of my favorite shows to watch are DC Cupcakes on TLC and Cupcake Wars on Food Network.

So today a few of us girls took our sweet tooth's to Georgetown Cupcake where DC Cupcakes is filmed and can I tell you it did not let us down.
It was really hard to pick flavors! They have everyday flavors, daily specials, and a seasonal choice. Today I was also lucky enough to get a FREE SECRET CUPCAKE. One of the flavors I requested was the Salted Caramel. The FREE Secret cupcake of the day was a Chocolate Salted Caramel. And can I tell you it was by far my favorite and I'm sure that I entertained everyone with my facial expressions and moaning sounds.
These are the 6 that I brought home. One for a friend who was unable to join us one for each of the boys and the rest for Chris and I.
The place is small but adorable. We went at about 11am to beat the rush. They said they are really crazy between 12 and 2pm. They even had a side window in the back so you could see them frost and decorate cupcakes.
We followed this yummy stop up with a walk along the river and lunch at the The Tackle Box where I enjoyed some grill blue fish and a side salad.

Life is good, especially when you're eating cupcakes. I have to admit that I've been perusing the menu trying to decide which day would be a good day when I decide to go back....but that' won't be TOO soon.


  1. I love cupcake bakeries. There is one in Denver called Happy Cakes and their Chocolate Salted Caramel is divine!! I am so glad you had such a fun time. If you ever make it out to visit again, we will have to go!

  2. Had Georgetown Cupcakes for the first time about a month ago. They are soooo good!

  3. After this post and the Queenie's, I'm going to be thinking about what delectable treat to eat on my free day this week. You have to plan this sort of thing with relish! Those cupcakes look free-day worthy to be sure!

  4. I heard that place was amazing. Jen Fernando went there on a Saturday and the wait was 2 hours. CRAZY!!!! I should bug Jen to come join us again, shouldn't I?! Thanks for the reminder to enjoy our free days...it makes the other days well worth it.

  5. You're bad, I'm bad and at some point we're all bad when it comes to enjoying some foods and isn't that really GOOD that we can!

  6. You didn't tell me when we talked that you'd brought some home. I would've driven straight to you and forgot about fixing dinner for my family.

  7. Oh man! I would have such a hard time choosing with a menu like that!

  8. I have one of those specialty cupcake shops just down the street...about 5 blocks..too close. I'm proud to say I haven't had one in over a year.
