I just got my ring back from being fitted and let me tell you it is a bit ridiculous how happy having this shiny piece of jewelry on my finger makes me.
It is SO sparkly I can’t even handle it.
No, really, i might not be able to handle it, it’s a little distracting when I’m driving and the light catches it.
Not good. I”m going to have to learn to focus a little bit better, it’s just that 1) I can’t believe I’m getting married in just over 4 months and the ring is a very real reminder of that, and 2) I’m a sucker for sparkles.
Lots and lots of sprinkles. They’re like the sparkles of the edible world.
So, yeah, these Funfetti Cheesecake Squares are showcasing some serious bling. More importantly though, they’re packing some serious flavor. All in one bite you get the taste of cake batter, that creamy cheesecake texture, buttery, crunchy cookie crust, and sprinkles
Any day filled with sparkles and sprinkles is a good day in my book.
