I had a birthday wishlist that my dear family seems to have read. I acknowledge that a bunch of those items were hard to find. Over an awesome dim sum lunch, we discussed a few of those items. My mom would've given me her old leather bow tie...if she could find the teddy bear that she accessorized it with. And seeing as how she has two brothers, the actual owner of the bow tie is up for debate. My taste buds are definitely happy that my aunt knows what macarons are. And yes, it's a delightfully creamy treat with a texture that's pleasantly hard to describe. So my mom thought the photo I had up on the blog of them was some sort of plastic thing, or makeup. She knows what they are now, though she may refer to them as "maraccos, morcarons, macaroos" or something of the such.
Why yes, those are awesome pictures of the macarons taken with my new weapon, the Canon t1i. Yay for crossing another item off my wishlist! You'll definitely be seeing some outfit photos soon from that- I haven't been able to put my camera down yet.
