1 package (18.25 oz) chocolate cake mix (I use the most rich one I can find) 

1 package (4 oz) chhocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 container (8 oz) sour cream (I use 16 oz, it makes it more moist)
4 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups (12 oz package) semi-sweet chocolate morsels

and frosting i tried this recipe, YUM

Preheat oven to 350
combine cake mix, pudding mix, sour cream, eggs, vegetable oil and water in a large arge mixer bowl; beat on low speed just until blended. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Stir in morsels. pour into 2 cupcake pans.

Bake for 25-28 min.

Beach to Bay Day finally arrived and I survived! Friday night our team of 6 people/3 couple had a little pow-wow spaghetti dinner pre game shin dig you get the idea. Saturday morning Ryan and I headed to the bay we had the last two legs of the marathon and my sweet husband decided to run my leg with me what a gem. The 4.2 miles went great, I was just not prepared for the heat it was SUCH a humid morning. It was my first race and it was fun fun! (looking back on it, during not so much).

Later that night my boss (LOVE my new job btw) had a birthday party that was BLAST. The theme was bohemian and it was adorable. Her husband and friend surprised set it all up, such a fun night with yummy-o food! Of coarse I am obsessed with the elephant cake stand.

triple choc

So of coarse I show up at his work bright and early with a few dozen cupcakes to make sure EVERYONE knows its his b-day then i spoil with presents and insist we go to dinner at a place of his choosing :) sidenote: these are the best freaking cupcakes EVER! Happy Birthday to my main man!
