Lucky girl!

Look what I've got!

These babies are cupcakes from The Magnolia Bakery, brought to me all the way from NYC by my friend Tracie, who was visiting a friend there for spring break. I developed a taste for them a couple of years ago whilst in a long-distance relationship with a guy who was in medical school at NYU. They are SO good. Words really can't describe the frosting, it's just SO sweet and creamy. I've tried to replicate it, but no luck. Pardon their appearance - they came all the way across the country in a suitcase! It was SO nice of her to bring them for me - thanks Tracie!!!

Yes, I do intend to eat them all. The blue one was the first to go. I might give one to Dave, if he's really nice...

Oh, I also now have these, which really is more exciting than the cupcakes, but I was going to wait until I had them in hand to show them off. But, I am super excited about them and I can't wait, so here you go. Never again will I rent skis!

I also bought boots, but you don't need to see them. I didn't bring the skis home because they have to mount the bindings, but I will get them on Thursday. Probably won't get to use them this season, but maybe. We'll see. I got them at Evo, which is a great store just up the road from our apartment. Generally their stuff is really pricey but the end of the season sale was phenomenal. Let's just say I got the skis and the boots for almost $200 less than the retail price of the skis alone...
