You crazy girl. I was going to be mad when I saw this post earlier, but didn't have time to leave a comment -- but now Jen just stopped by with some Black Forest Mini Cheesecakes for me--you're tricky. (For everyone older sister Jen passed through Amy's town earlier today on her way back from our parents, so Amy sent me a b-day treat.)
