little cupcake ~ FINALLY

I've been waiting FIVE MONTHS to go to Little Cupcake in Bay Ridge w my daughter. FINALLY, yesterday, we got there. It was charming...and PACKED. She had a peanut butter cupake - why - and I had coconut. Honestly, the cupcake itself was a smidge, uhm, not that moist. The frosting was AWESOME. I'll certainly give it another try. I can sometimes forego a little on the food itself, for a charming atmosphere, and it certainly has that.

PS - the photo is a rare look at Yours Truly

the destruction of man. or something.

this was taken (obviously) pre-snowstorm. i have to go to ikea today. AGAIN. picked up the wrong bookcase last week. grr. anyway. will be interesting to take a look and see if he's all the way buried.

i don't know where the little rainbow in the corner came from? hope for humanity? i think so.

snowed in

caleb and i went for a long walk yesterday around 4:30, still snowing, still windy...everything was really slushy and heavy. most shops on the avenue were not open so much of the sidewalk was not shoveled. I love being out in near desolation  :-)

I wonder how many deliveries this bike had to make....
