Unofficial Official Cupcake Day At House Of Ross

A friend on facebook posted what I have been wondering myself for years.  Why is everyone so busy? Busy, busy, busy.  Stop and smell the roses is such a thing of the past.  Similar to my friend I've never bought in to or had the desire to be one of those go, go, go kind of mamas.

The first couple of years as a stay at home mom if I heard my husband pull in the drive way in the middle of the day I would jump up out of my chair and pretend to be doing "busy work".  That goes against being as authentic and real as I can be in a time where women are supposed to be "doing it all".  So the "pretend to be busy look" didn't last long for me thank God!

I'll never apologize for sipping tea in the middle of the day while surfing online for shoes, baking bread for no reason or skipping out on ballet lessons for no reason other than "we just don't feel it today".

So I declare today the official Cupcake Day at House of Ross in celebration of not being super women, do it all, busy, busy, go, go, go mom.  Learn to say no!  It feels liberating and doesn't hurt peoples feeling as you might think.

Do something for yourself more than once a month for no reason other than you just flat out deserve it.  Like baking cupcakes for no reason other than being damn happy to have three healthy kiddos, a loving tolerant
husband and an amazing clan of family and friends.


This is the recipe I used today:


The frosting to this recipe is super sweet as most frostings are.  Below is a great recipe I found that cuts the sweetness in half.


  1. Yum yum yum yum yum me love cupcakes (now picture me eating them like cookie monster!!!) Though I am one of those crazy busy moms I love a good cupcake. Though it is rare that I bake them myself. Hope all is well my friend.
