Last Friday, I took the day off to spend time with my visiting family. We had no special plans, so we wandered around and I got to play hostess. First, we got goodies at Icing on the Cake, one of my favorite bakeries. They make the best banana cakes. I got a banana cupcake this time and thought that it might even be better than the banana cake (if that’s at all possible).
One night we transformed my living room into a slumber party theater by laying tons of blankets and pillows out on the floor in front of the TV. We watched The Disappearance of Alice Creed, a crime thriller with Gemma Arterton (she was so gorgeous in Prince of Persia) and Martin Compston (I want his Scottish accent). I even brought out the Reese’s Pieces and sour belts I had bought for just the occasion, but barely anyone touched them except for me!
