Lulu’s Cupcakes

I finally made it to Lulu’s Cupcakes a few weeks ago, and I am so happy that I did! Not only do they have the best cupcakes, but I had a delicious sandwich to boot. Lulu is located in Elk Grove, California (about 20 minutes south of Sacramento) in the heart of Old Town Elk Grove.  They’ve been open a little less than a year, with the owner being a recent high school graduate.  I only wish it’d  been around while I was in high school, and college…I could have envisioned myself studying for hours while eating red velvet cupcake after red velvet cupcake.

Candi’s Favorite Things!



I was tagged by my new buddy, Piper of Steak & Cakes, to list some of my favorite things. Her blog is fantastic….please check it out!


As a recovering shop-a-holic, spend-a-holic, I don’t shop much anymore. I will state that once I start making money, I plan to shop at my home away from home during college (which is the reason I can’t shop anymore)

I can’t forget about Etsy, since I’ve learned so much from it since I started about 8 months ago. For those of you who don’t know, I’m working on opening up a shop very, very soon with my photos as note cards/post cards or for those of you who want to buy them as prints. Please stay tuned!!!


The city I love the most hands down is Lake Tahoe…which is in both California and Nevada! This was my favorite place growing up. I realized at the young age of 10 that I wanted to be a reporter, thanks to all the practice of chasing down celebrities and conducting my own interviews! Each year my mom and I go to the celebrity golf tournament. Mostly to see Sir Charles, but mainly to have a good time! This year Tony Romo and Lucas Black threw me their golf balls! Needless to say I’m already counting down to next July!

I love Tony Romo, it's just a joke. I'd never mock him!Haha I love Tony, I wouldn’t mess with him!


I tend to love sour things far more than anything sweet, but when I do have sweets I love turtles-chocolate with nuts. I am happy with a Hershey’s with Almonds! I love caramel covered marshmallows too!



I like water, chamomile tea when I’m stressed, dr. pepper, and iced tea. Drinks with alcohol: bud light with limeade, margaritas, and a key lime martini from a restaurant called Centros in Sacramento.


I love it all from classic country, to new country, oldies, rock, classic rock, hip hop, to elevator music. I love everything! A few favorites are

Keith Urban concert on my birthday!


I don’t really watch tv. I turn on The Hills, but I can’t even get myself to be fully engaged in an episode. I don’t know what’s happening to me! If I watch tv it’s usually the news or if I know somebody I like is going to be on a program. Wait a sec I almost forgot, I’m really liking Kath and Kim and I watch The Soup.


I’m thankful to have a fast metabolism, and I don’t work out.


Red velvet and fruit basket cake are my favorites!


Before I start please don’t think that I’m anal because of my drink. I have a weak stomach that can’t handle more than one espresso shot.

From Starbucks I get a tall caramel macchiatto with extra caramel and whipped cream in a venti cup. I used to have to say I’d like venti caramel macchiatto with a single shot, decaf, ex. caramel and whipped cream…but thanks to a nice guy at Starbucks recently I only have to say tall ” ” ” ” in a venti cup…and it saves me money 🙂

I have to tag two people but there are three lovely blogs I’d like to tag!
