New Stuff

We're back from our vacation! I had a ton of fun in Colorado snowboarding but I am pretty glad to be home. I have a ton of pictures (and even a video of me boarding!) to post but I'll get to that a little later.

Yesterday we had to go get a few things from the Mall due to the Denver airport's desire to make me miserable every time we fly through there. (last year we were flagged and had to go through that crazy thing that blows air all over you and this year they decided that my Victoria's Secret body lotion and Cetaphil face lotion were security threats and not allowed on the plane. I had to throw them away). Anyway, we had to go by the mall to pick up some more lotion and I decided to stop off at Michaels to see if they had the marker set that Jess has been coveting for a while, for her birthday. Of course, they were out of the set.

While I was in the store though, I decided to check out the cake decorating aisle. It's been a long time since I've been to Michael's to buy supplies for cake making (these days I'm in the local supply shop or ordering on-line) and I decided I'd check and see what Wilton's been up to. To my surprise, they have an entirely new line of cake decorating and baking supplies! I guess everyone's jumping on the fresh, spring color band wagon right now! Super cute and what a great color!

This is an especially cool gadget. It's angled to fit down the sides of your stand mixer, sure would come in handy!

I've been looking for a good cake lifter...

I'm pretty impressed with the new stuff, it's good to see Wilton trying to be a little more fresh and hip.

What did I end up getting Jessica for her birthday?

It's a recipe box from Martha's line at Macy's. I purchased the citrus press for Jess for Christmas this year so when Michael's was out of the marker set she wanted, I decided to take a look at Macy's. I saw this recipe box and knew it was perfect for her! It fits all Martha Stewart Living recipe cards and it's in a color that I know she enjoys (who doesn't though?)! I just discovered that it's now unavailable online - maybe I should go back and get the other one they had!

This box is really adorable. I'm dying to buy it but they won't deliver here in Brazil... :(
