the short week blues - nautical edition!

Although I am happy it is a short week, it can be stressful trying to fit five days of work and finish all these "to do" lists in just four days. So...I can't help but have the blues...
 the Monday morning blues
What make this past weekend so great thus making it harder to come into work? 
A red velvet recipe (I slightly altered it) that is AMAZING!
RED VELVET (original recipe from here)
Ingredients for the version I made: 
1 red velvet cake mix 
3 large eggs 
2 tsp cocoa 
1 tsp vanilla 
1 cup sour cream 
1 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp vinegar 

Ingredients for frosting: 
1 eight-ounce package of cream cheese 
1 container of whipped cream 
2 cups powdered sugar

Mix all ingredients for the cake together and bake according to box directions.
In a separate bowl, mix the frosting ingredients together. Once the cupcakes cool, frost and enjoy!
