Made from soft, moist chocolate cupcakes, Nutella centers, and Nutella frosting! They almost melt in your mouth and are full of delicious Nutella flavors!


So for the part of last weekend and over the weekend, I went to Salt Lake City for a conference. It was a good time and as usual, there were a number of takeaways and things that kept me motivated, which is one of the things I like being in the same room as other bloggers. I met new faces and hung out with some old ones and it was full of good times.

I must say, I'm ready to go home. I really can't wait to hug the hub and rub my kid's stomach. I missed them more than usual and headed straight for the big bear hug from the hub as I walked through the door.

After about 4 days of wandering around, it was good enough to sit on the couch and relax. Not to mention sleeping in my own bed. Is there anything better?
