Hello hello folks, it’s time for another Manckwhite Meal Plan Monday! But first, did you happen to see on Twitter or Facebook that our dog, Bueller, is internet famous? My cousin, Dylan, discovered him on Buzzfeed’s list of 30 Dogs That Were in the Wedding! He’s number 20, looking adorable in his bowtie during our wedding ceremony : ) If you’d like to see more of Bueller (and us) at the wedding, you should check out Elissa R Photography’s blog entry of our wedding photos.
And now, a weekend recap. This weekend was pretty hunkered-down for the Manckwhites as we focused on getting things wrapped up before we head up to Albany next week and packed up before we move in a few weeks. Right now our apartment is full of boxes and bins, some headed for NY for Thanksmas and many stuffed full of our possessions. It’s looking a little bleak without anything on the walls or above our cabinets, but I’m really looking forward to the bigger kitchen and having an office in the new apartment.
Not all of the weekend was spent at home though; we also celebrated our lacrosse buddy (and pretend adopted child) Wyatt’s 18th birthday at our favorite Greek restaurant Niko Niko’s last night. For this momentous occasion, I made special cupcakes that I’ve deemed WyattMint: Andes-mint-bottomed fudge cupcakes, frosted with chocolate-mint Manckwhite buttercream and topped with a whole Andes mint. They were some of the prettiest cupcakes I’ve ever made and Wyatt really enjoyed them as well. Happy Birthday, bud!
