Oh red velvet cupcake....

SO I always get coffee cravings late at night.  It's strange....  I only act on this craving on the weekends when I don't have to wake up oh so early.  Well I got the craving the other night.  I had just finished shopping with my mom and we pulled into my driveway at about 10pm and it hit me..."I want coffee...wanna go to Starbucks?"...  Because my mom LOVES me so much and understands my randomness completely, she agreed.  So we drove up to Starbucks and needed some sugar on the side as well.....because it was so late they were out of our usual choice, the iced lemon loaf.  SO I asked the nice voice behind the ordering board "well what do you have?"..Chocolate cake "ooohhh", and then she said the magic words "RED VELVET CUPCAKES.."  WHAT WHAT WHAT?!?!?!  Red velvet cupcakes?????  SOLD!  I LOOOOOVE red velvet ANYTHING!  My mom bakes me a red velvet cake every year for my birthday.  Red Velvet was also my wedding cake.  So of course when the nice starbucks voice behind the ordering board said red velvet cupcakes my response was "OH YES, I'll take that please!"...  Then they handed us our coffee and my mom her snack in a mini paper bag and then they handed me a little box.  A gift????  FOR ME????  My red velvet cupcake came in a box!  HOW CUTE IS THAT?!?!?  My mom said it is because I am special.....  (she was being sarcastic) and I know she was a little jealous.  ;)  So we get back to my house and I was VERY excited about my red velvet cupcake AND the fact that it came in a box.  SOOOOO I decided to capture this moment with a few pictures.  And who else to share them with, but you fabulous people.  If you haven't figured it out yet, I am easily amused....  Enjoy! :)


Here is the box....just for me!  PS: I hate taking pictures with no natural light, but it was 11 o'clock at night!  Sorry....


There it is!!!!  Oh red velvet cupcakes....


Look at the cute little red sugar crystal things!  So pretty....  :)

Thanks Starbucks!  See you soon! :)
