My friend Mary and I popped into Marshalls after work tonight. The stars were aligned in such a way that we both found something special.

After a two-year search, Mary found a cute comforter with lovely shades of blue in it. I am happy to report that I found my next birthday list item. For the low, low price of $3.00, I am now a proud owner of a funnel cake kit. Every year I cook or bake something I’ve never cook or baked. This is the year of the funnel cake.
