Arizona and Cupcakes

Hi friends. It's been a restful week for us as Mr DIY and I spent it in Arizona. The sun shone every single day and I definitely got a healthy dose of Vitamin D. As someone who suffers from Seasonal Affective Disorder, being in the sunshine was so restorative!

We lazed by the pool most of the week, biked along the streets of Old Town Scottsdale and generally took it easy. If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen some hilights. If you haven't, here are a few pictures...



Bright, hot sunshine speaks summer to me. There are some foods that just say 'summer' to me too...things like corn on the cob, watermelon and cupcakes!

Little DIY asked me to make Watermelon Cupcakes recently, after she saw a watermelon cake on an episode of The Profit (she's 10...but it's one of her favorite shows!). So I did a little searching and put a couple recipes together to create my own version. It was a huge hit and these Watermelon Cupcakes are a little taste of summer that can be enjoyed all year!


I'm sharing this tasty recipe today over at McCall Manor; I hope you'll join me over there.

  2. That's that cool midcentury modern hotel. That must have been fun, because that place is practically new again.
