My New-Found Love!

My new-found love is Williams-Sonoma! I just ordered this pancake mold from their website. Isn't it too cute for words??? And only $16! I can't wait to get it! I'll be making us some yummy, adorable pancakes filled with fruit for sure!


I also couldn't resist ordering this amazing cake pan. For her second birthday (in 10 months, but who's planning ahead?), Kirsten will have this cake shaped like a giant cupcake!

And I'm sure mine will look every bit as good as these do. Yeah right!!! Knowing me, the cake will stick to the pan and I won't be able to get it out without botching up the whole thing and making it look like a mutilated cupcake. My goal will be to get it to look like the top picture with the cherry on top, but if that really happens then no one will be more surprised than me! But I'll have fun trying!

When we bought our townhouse last November, we got the most AMAZING luck and actually WON the homeowner's drawing for a $5,000 gift card to Pottery Barn! It was SO exciting, especially considering this was the first thing both Stephen and I could ever remember winning in our whole lives. We had the greatest time shopping with it at Pottery Barn and buying beautiful furniture and decorations for our new house. $5,000 doesn't go as far as you might think, since Pottery Barn is definitely pricey. Almost half of the gift card went to buying this gorgeous table and six chairs from the picture below. I love my table! We still have some money left on the gift card, and I was able to use some at Williams-Sonoma to order my fun new baking tools. I'll be sure to post some pictures when I actually use them!

  9. I already have the Wilton cupcake pan (that I've never even used! LOL) but now I want this one too! How many giant cupcake pans does a girl need? :)

    And $5000 to Pottery Barn? AND Williams-Sonoma? Be still my heart! How cool!

  14. I've been eyeing the big cupcake mold. Let us know when you use it.
    My husband got me a really awesome cook book stand and recipe file from Williams and Sonoma for Christmas. It was probably way over priced but I love it!
