Proud Terp Alumni

People who know me are well aware I am a huge fan of cupcakes. I just <3 love <3 them. So cute, perfect sized, any flavor you can imagine...! What's NOT to love? Oh, are they bad for you? Small, inconsequential detail. Everything in moderation.

I'm sure I've mentioned them before, but two of my all-time favorite blogs are Cupcakes Take the Cake and Cup Cake Bake Shop by Chockylit. The former really is the ultimate in delicious, sugary, cupcake porn coming to my RSS daily. :) Mmmm...

So, what's with the title of this post? Well, today I got a standard University of Maryland Alumni Association e-mail. Usually, I pass these off as invites to lame-sounding parties at the Alumni center or backhanded ruses to get us newly alumni-ed to donate money we don't have, but this one was actually for the 10th Annual Maryland Day. Even though I always enjoyed Maryland Day as an undergrad, I still wouldn't have really cared because I will be out of the country (and off the continent!) on April 26th. But then one little line caught my eye and gave me one huge reason why I am glad to be a University of Maryland Alumni:

YESSS!! :) I'm truly sad I'll be missing out on my Terp Cupcake. :( I hope they have Testudo-decor. Something like red velvet 'Stud-adorned cupcake would be perfect:

My MS Paint skills are unmatched!

Also, where were these when I graduated?!

Go Terps and Go Cupcakes! :)

Going cupcakes is totally the new going bananas and running amok.
