It was my best blog buddy Rich's birthday last week, and all I got him was a Christmas card, didn't send him a present, a card, nothing. Totally forgot it. He may be my best blog buddy, but I am a shitty blog buddy to him. So what do I find in my kitchen when I arrive home from working out? A box.
I open the box and read the card, it's from Rich and his life partner Monica. I get my hopes up because Rich and I had recently discussed things in boxes, but instead of that I found these pastries!!! Okay, there were more pastries, twice as many, in fact, but those are out of the picture frame, 3/4ths eaten already.
The pastries came from Uniquely Yours Pastry Shoppe. I have admired the beauty of Jin's pastries on her blog, but the way they look is NOTHING compared to the way they taste!!! My favorite was the cappucino brownie, no, the mint brownie, no, the sugar cookie, no, the raspberry brownie, well, you get the idea.
If anyone has any ideas on how I can thank these two, especially the birthday boy, please share them with me. I am so blissfully happy right now, with a bellyache from all the sugar, but even more so the sweetness of my friend.
