CARAMEL APPLE CUPCAKES

Caramel Apple Cupcakes made with a spiced apple cupcake & topped with caramel icing. They melt in your mouth and are the perfect use for all those apples!

So please tell me I’m not the only one that has those moments where you say something totally dumb without meaning to. The hubs gives me a hard time about it pretty regularly.

For example, recently we were driving over to the store and when we got to the parking lot he asked, “Where should I park?” To which I responded, “I don’t know. I guess wherever there’s an open spot.”

Now it may seem like I was being kind of a smartie there, but I wasn’t. Something in my brain genuinely didn’t connect and I was like, I don’t know. Ha!

Of course he knows me well enough to know I didn’t mean it meanly and he laughed at me and said, “Yes, I know to park in an open spot, but where? By which store?”

Ohhhhhhh! Right! Yea, over there. Oops. 😊
