Pretty in Pink

Hi All! Well my sister and I had fun-filled day of shopping! We found ourselves all over the place, including…

  • Crate and Barrel
  • Bath and Body Works
  • Gap
  • Ann Taylor Loft
  • Lucy┬á

Whew! Now were so exhausted, but not too tired to have a little late night dessert…

12.18 raspberry swirl cake

Raspberry and white chocolate swirl cake with a side of Edy’s peppermint ice cream – so yum! And I love the pink colors – how girly, don’t ya think?

Now, we’re getting ready for a little gift wrapping party – fun, fun, fun! Tomorrow, we’re headed to a Nutcracker-themed afternoon tea. I love the practice of taking tea in the afternoon – it’s so old-school British! We’re also hoping to go for a morning walk/run – although it might be too cold (30 degrees – brrrrr…)

Signing off for now, but stay tuned for pics of my cool loot from Lucy!


  1. Your dessert is so cute, I love it! ­čÖé And I agree, shopping is tiring… it’s hard work being a girl! ­čśë

    • Christy – It sure is HARD work being a girl. Why can’t men go out and do all of the shopping and wrapping? Maybe it’s because we’d end up taking everything back or just getting a gift card – he he!

  2. oh my gosh, that dessert looks so pretty and delicious! I have yet to try peppermint ice cream, but I really need to! I’m an ice cream-aholic

    • Kristine – if you want to try the peppermint ice cream – better hurry! Typically peppermint ice cream (at least Edy’s brand) is seasonal and probably won’t be around much longer!
