The triplets are living the New York City dream. In other words, our kitchen is perpetually stocked with Magnolia Bakery cupcakes. And peanut butter cookies. And banana pudding.
….The reason being that Little Katie has been working at Magnolia Bakery for a few weeks now. She is at the original location on Bleecker St. in the charming West Village.
It’s just around the corner from Carrie Bradshaw’s “house,” whose steps have been roped off to deter all-too-giddy Sex and the City fans. And it’s across the street from a quintessential New York City scene: A little boutique, a tourist, a hot dog truck, and garbage. It’s a lovely walk to work. Everyone can’t wear Carrie Bradshaw’s shoes, but everyone can taste the cupcakes she ate. So in flock the tourists in such numbers that a cupcake bouncer is required to man the door and keep the queue in line. Here she is restocking coconut cupcakes…and letting not a single strand escape from the trusty hair net. With one friend at Billy’s Bakery in Chelsea and one at Magnolia’s, life can’t get any sweeter. Ah, it’s nice to have connections in NYC! In other news, NYU classes have started up again and we want to join them. Sure, we can walk around campus all we please, but it’s just not the same. Give us lecture halls, and events with free food, and hours in the library. Grad school anyone? Just kidding.
