King Cake and Cannolis

Yes, I'm gonna get to the winner.

But first, did I tell you I was headed back to NYC this weekend?

I am.

As you know, it's one of my favorite places in the world.

This time I get to take my kiddos.

La Petite Belle is super excited, mainly because she gets to fly for the first time. Little does she know that it's one of the most boring things. I'm sure she won't enjoy being strapped to a seat for three hours. We'll see.

K Belle is kind of anxious about flying and would have rather have spent her money on clothes than traveling to the Big Apple. That's just crazy.

We're gonna do all the touristy things: Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, Times Square & a show, Chinatown, Little Italy, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, and The Museum of Natural History.

And, we'll eat ... eat good.

In fact, La Petite Belle's one request is that we travel to Hoboken, NJ to Carlos' Bakery to get some sweets. 

She wants a cake,  but it will be their famous cannolis that we purchase. 

I'll give you peek into our trip next week.

Speaking of sugary treats ...

The winner of the king cake giveaway is Jammie Jacobson. Congrats Jammie! I'll be emailing you and coordinating delivery of said cake.

Thanks to everyone who entered!

Until next year ...

Wish I had known you were headed to NYC. I have a few hookups. Cannoli's...yum!!! Empire State building....awesome! What show are you going to see???

Mama Belle said...

What'd you mean "hookups"? Something I might be interested in?

We're going to see "Mary Poppins."

Congrats to Jammie! I loved that cake last year -- I still talk about how awesome it was to get it and eat it on the way to our annual journalism conference!!
