After a very early morning (3:30 wakeup call) flight and arriving in Denver, we made a quick stop for pre-surgery blood work, and then straight to Lovely Confections to pick up my yummies!
I was so excited and they looked great! All mini (not as mini as I'd imagined at all) and pink and sparkely! Exactly what I wanted for my Cupcake party. Couldn't leave without getting a close up of the Strawberries & Cream pretties. How great do those look?
We had some great friends, both new and old, meet us at the park to hang out, eat cupcakes, and to wish me well. There were four Yakes patients today. Me & Arie as current patients, Steph & Danine as former patients. It was very cool to know all of these ladies and to be able to meet up with them and all of the other wonderful people who support us and for today, support me.
And fine, I admit it, we DID mostly eat the cupcakes before the other more lunch "suitable" foods. But what the heck, this is a party and I get to make up the rules right? So after admiring the pretty cakes and taking lots of pictures of the them proudly displaying "AVM Supermodel" we dug in and enjoyed the taste as much or even more than the look of them!
And I've received some great pics of more friends joining in on the celebration. It's totally awesome to see everyone supporting me in such a sugary, spectacular, and heat warming way.
|Morgan seems to like hers!|
|I think Taylor is excited to eat this one.|
|Toni chose a Sponge Bob theme|
|Lissa redid the frosting on these Sugar Free cakes. AND Lissa is where I got the idea of Cupcake Day. So please thank her for your sugar overload!|
Thank you to everyone for being such wonderful people in my life. Thank you for helping me celebrate this next step in my AVM journey and to keep me feeling positive and happy when I could very easily just be super freaked out today. Instead, I had a wonderful time with some great people and I continue to smile each time I hear that someone had a cupcake today and see the pictures of the lovely yummies they enjoyed in my honor. It's very cool and exactly what I needed! Tomorrow will be a little bit sweeter having the happy memories and the positive thoughts from today.
Love you all!
