|My daughter wants me to make this!|
Prior to 10:30 am today I didn't even know such a show existed, let alone that it was close to my house.
My aunt called to see if my daughter could go with (her daughter and my daughter are the same age. Which sound weird, I know, but big families and age gaps work together to make this happen). So these two second cousins, who are really best friends, have a good time together.
Except my daughter wasn't home, so I sadly said no and went to finish reading my book.
But I thought about it. And thought about it. And I decided that I wanted to go over to the show myself.
So I did.

The good news: about 2 hours after I got there, my husband was able to run my daughter over to meet us so the girls were able to have fun there together.
We walked around.
There was a lot of alcohol. And chocolate. Demonstrations to watch. And oh, some celebrities to meet.
Yes, we meet Sophie and Katherine of Georgetown Bakery (from DC cupcakes on TLC). They demo'd making some wonderful cupcakes - that should soon be on the TLC website. I'm not above admitting I took a few notes. Because who doesn't want to make better tasting cupcakes?

Apparently, this is the 2nd year for this show, so I'm going to have to try to remember to watch for it to come back next year! It was a good time!
