it is the dawning of the age of aquarius

good morning- wait- what? um- yeah- today is my bday - and i'm an aquarian - is that right- aquariun?
aquarium?
aqua?
agua?
butter?
LOL! I'm turning 29 today- *cough cough* again- for the um- 6th time now.
Actually I told DH when he wished me Happy Bday that I'm turning 28 today- then each year I can get younger!
no cards to share- I'm going to veg out and read a book today- but I made these nice cupcakes last night for my hubby- who adores coconut/dark chocolate things.
http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2009/02/sweets-for-your-sweetie-yellow-cupcakes-with-sticky-chocolate-icing/
these are rich coconut chocolate cupcakes.
it's all the pioneer woman's fault- she made this icing- and it looked so yummy. but I wanted to try it with my coconut supreme cake mix recipe. and yeah- these are sooo delish! really good flavors.
I won't put the recipe here- since it's on the PW site- but- I did forget to add in the butter- so maybe yours will stay shiney! LOL! they taste wonderful without it too!
and I used a Betty Crocker cake mix- cause I'm all about keeping it simple with quick stuff like this.

let me know if you try them- what you think!
oh and other super news- Alizabeth made All County Chorus yesterday- she and 4 other girls from her school will be participating in the Chorus. she's completely thrilled about it, as are we.

have a great day!
