Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway + Outfit

Hedwig and the Angry Inch with Neil Patrick Harris on Broadway

On Sunday, Mish and I went to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch with Neil Patrick Harris on Broadway!!!! It was so incredible. NPH was the perfect Hedwig. We marveled at how he could dance, jump, and do splits on stage in GIANT HEELS, whereas we can barely walk in them. And his improv in between songs was hilarious (of course). You must, must see it. I need to watch the movie all over again.

I’m so glad Mish and I went together. We don’t hang out nearly as much as we used to, and I miss her so. ♥

Outfit: Rust & Roses

My coworkers love this sweater. Thanks to the little patches on the shoulder, I’ve heard jokes ranging from “you’re ready for tea time at a moment’s notice!” to “It’s the lieutenant of the doily army!” Real pranksters, huh? ;)

It’s okay. I’m down for a good chuckle, even if it’s at my expense. And I really do like my doily sweater. It’s super soft and warm, even though it’s thin.

I also think the pale pink in the sweater offsets my rust-colored skinny jeggings really nicely.

… And perfectly matches the infinity scarf my Auntie Kathy gave me for Christmas, and my pretty rose ring.

Add 2-3 feet of snow to the ground and Manic Panic in Rock ‘N’ Roll Red to my hair, and you’ll have what this photo would look like if I took it today. As part of my ongoing struggle goal to be organized, Stan and I took these photos a few weeks ago, prior to the 10 or so snowstorms Mother Nature has gifted us with.

I’m a big fan of this chunky pink polka dot scarf, which Scarlett gave me for Yule-mas. She knows her Auntie well!

Oh, and the back of this cardigan from Anthropologie has the prettiest lace detail, doesn’t it?

Recipe: Pink Sugar Cupcakes

Suzi and I had so much fun making these, and just in time for Valentine’s Day, too! ♥ It’s a pretty simple vanilla cake with buttercream frosting, with a few unique twists. We had a few topping ideas — candy hearts, handmade flags (we used washi tape and heart confetti), pink cotton candy (we couldn’t find any!!) … but our absolute favorite is the candy apple “sculptures” Suzi made.
