Happy Easter!

I didn't get to spend Easter with family, but I did have a lot of fun dying eggs and eating Easter candy.  Here, my Easter in pictures:

Easter Cupcakes

Happy Easter!!

Things have been super busy around here - lots of experiments to do in lab, lots of social and family things going on, and plenty to do in the department of informal obligations.  I've been keeping up with running - 8 miles last weekend, 8 this weekend, and then I'm on to 9 and 10 miles!  The long runs have been lots of fun - I'm glad I decided to commit to the half and to Broad Street, since I am finding I really like running.

This Easter I'm far away from my family, but I did manage to make one Easter food - carrot cake cupcakes!  The recipe was from Alton Brown on the Food Network website, so you can head on over there for the directions.  These were DELICIOUS, and so easy to make.  I did leave out the walnuts, since I didn't have any, and I used reduced fat cream cheese (neufchatel), which didn't seem to have an adverse effect on the deliciousness of the frosting.

I even managed to pipe on these cute little carrots!  Sorry the picture is so blurry, but I forgot to take one until I was at work and only had my phone with me.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter and spend some time with family and friends :)
