  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, water, vanilla extract, sour cream, and oil. Mix together until well combined.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk together until well incorporated.
  5. Pour batter into a greased and lined pan and then tap the pan on the counter to remove air bubbles.

Time to decorate!

  1. Dip a lollipop stick into dark chocolate and then insert into a cake ball. Do this for the rest of your cake pops and then refrigerate them for 30 minutes.
  2. Dip cake balls into dark coating chocolate and then allow them to dry.
  3. Use brown royal icing to attach sugar gems to the inside of each cake ball. Allow to dry completely.
  4. Pipe a thin line of white royal icing around the edge of each geode and then coat in white and gold sanding sugar.
  5. TaDa! Rock the party with these amazing Geode Cake Pops!

I finished up The Adventure Zone the other day and boy howdy was it an emotional ride. The podcast and this good good family mean a lot to me. If you haven’t listened, I’d strongly recommend it. It uh…just finished up, so watch out for spoilers, but I guarantee you’re gonna have a good time.

quiet night

theres just a what-if here about ritsu getting just a bit of psychic empathy and achieving the rest with his writers brain, and theres also a headcanon about mob not being a very good singer or not playing any instrument but being able to whistle very well 

I remember theres a word for that, the very good whistler thing, from a jeffery deaver book Ive read, but I cant find it in my memory anymore

I kinda want it back

☁️ Bullet Journal Inspiration Spread ☁️ 

Here’s a little spread of bullet journal accounts I absolutely adore and am continually inspired by: 

(in order from left to right by page)

 @holylantern - Just pure creativity. I love that it’s just drawings and no decorations (at least of the ones I’ve seen so far ^.^). Each spread is so unique. 

 @j-christabel // @eggtabel - Mainly drawings as well. Honestly, one the most unique bujos I have seen. I adore her use of colour and doodle, but it still manages to be so minimal.

@lycheestudy - Love how minimal and functional her spreads are, but still so so pretty. 

@studypetals - Amazing use of images, stickers, and lettering. I love the mood she creates with each spread. 

@smoinerd - Winnie! Ah, where do I even start? Absolutely in love with her spreads. There’s so much going on from gorgeous lettering to images of Junjin lol, but it’s still so organized and calming to look at. 

@unicaffe - I was in awe when I saw the spread pictured in the post showed up on my dashboard. Honestly so calming to look at and the gorgeous drawings and minimalistic look just *o* 

@journalsanctuary - I honestly love looking at her feed on Instagram. Layout and feed goals as well as her amazing bullet journal. The themes of her spreads are so pretty and natural. 

@studyrose - Goals, goals, goals. From feed to bullet journal to amazing personality, just everything <3 (I steal a lot of ideas from her when I stage my photos lol). 

@productiveflower - This girl right here actually inspired me to start my own studygram account. Although she says she’s not a fan of her own spreads, I’ll always be her fan. Adore her aesthetic as well as her sweet personality. <3

@eintsein - Love her use of different types of decorating elements, but still maintaining a cohesive and calm theme. Loving the blue, white, and green tones in this spread especially!

I wish I could have fit more on this inspiration board because there are so many wonderful bullet journals to share. Please sure to check each and everyone of these accounts out. Here on Tumblr as well as Instagram (if they have one)! :)

I also can’t help but be in awe of the bullet journal system. It allows creativity and accommodates so many different styles, but in the end, it is still a planner, and is practical to use.
