Anyway. The bio picnic was last weekend. Peach cupcakes with brown sugar cream cheese frosting were a success. Next time, the peaches will be cut smaller, but the cake itself was really good. The frosting was the real hit though. It was eat-with-a-spoon good. I don't normally make cream cheese frostings, but yummmmm. So yes. Also there was lobster and lots of other delicious desserts.
The really exciting thing that has happened in my life is that I got to see Ed Sheeran perform at House of Blues last night. It was super last minute (read: I didn't have a ticket until 1.5 hours before the show). Me and a friend had wanted to go, but the resale tickets were like $100 online; which is RIDICULOUS on a GA ticket that was sold for $30. So we were like, no we are going to spend no more than $60 if want to be there. We spent all of yesterday stalking the internet for tickets with no results. Finally, in a last ditch effort, I withdrew $100 and went to lurk outside HoB. There was a dude selling tickets outside and I talked him down from $75 each to get two tickets for my $100. So I texted Kadie to be like DRIVE LIKE THE WIND... and then went to go stuff my face at Boston Beer Works.
The show was AMAZING. He has such charisma on stage and is such a solid live performer. I mean, it's just him with his acoustic guitar up there... doing crazy things with the loop pedal. And honestly, witnessing the 15+ min version of You Need Me, I Don't Need You was worth ALL OF MY TIME AND DOLLARS. I am definitely going to another show when he's back in the area.
Today I made turkey white bean pumpkin chili that was sooooo good. And there are plenty of leftovers, which is awesome. Then on Saturday I am going APPLE PICKING and we are having a baking extravaganza with pie and crisp. I also found a recipe for crockpot apple butter that I am so excited to try out. I am turning domestic!
