I saw These Boots & it was love at first sight. I've never believed in love at first sight. I was a big, fat pessimist on that one. But rest assured I am now a believer. I am ridiculously obsessed with them. I tried to walk away, but thank goodness Glenn was there to do what he does best..... talk some sense into me. I am on a quest to wear them every day until summer. Even then I am not sure I'll be able to wrench them off my feet.
This little froth machine is also a new find. In case you didn't know I love hot chocolate. Drink it every day, sometimes twice a day and have passed along the delightful habit to my kids. We have right now I think 5 different brands of hot chocolate in our cupboard, we're all very particular on what we like :)
Sometimes I mix it up and have Pero instead. I don't drink coffee for religious and health reasons but I love everything about the ritual. The fancy mugs, the flavorings, the warmth it provides and especially the steamed and frothed milk. I've seen a few different models and even owned a few. This one on sale at Costco though I couldn't pass up. It steams and froths perfectly.
You wouldn't know it from my love for expensive boots and my insistance that a frothing machine is a necessity, but most of the time I am downright practical, sometimes too much so. Take for instance the half bath downstairs. For years it had a plain, boring, cheap, brown rug. Over time it got completely worn out.
One day I had an epiphany that I should just go ahead and buy a new rug (duh!). I knew this time around I wanted something colorful and when I saw this blue flower shaped one at Marshalls I was thrilled. I am by no means a decorator, I never even sample paint colors on the wall. I am very much a go with my gut person and I never try and make things match or go with a theme, I just like what I like. And I like this rug a lot!
What a surprise, another Costco find. I picked these up thinking they would be mostly chocolate with some nuts, but it's mostly nuts covered in creamy delicious milk chocolate. Exactly what I was hoping for as it seems healthier that way :) One or two of these is the perfect way to end lunch.
I wasn't a fan at all of the Kirkland brand boxed chocolate set, but every other chocolate confection from their salted macadamia caramel clusters, to their dark chocolate cherry clusters are fantastic. I bought 2 more bags of these cashew clusters for my freezer. Just in case.
A few weeks ago Glenn & I played a version of the Newlywed game with friends. One of the questions was "What is one thing your wife has too many of?" Glenn answered 'nothing' because I don't keep "stuff" (we got it right), knick knacks are not for me. But I forgot about one thing my husband isn't aware of because he never opens the lower kitchen cabinets. My stash of hand towels.
I love hand towels. Upon entering a thrift store I head straight to the back to the linen section. The older the better. But sometimes, like these, I buy new. The 2 white ones are from Marshall's. I had a gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket and why would I buy something as silly as clothes when I could buy hand towels. The other 2 are from Sur La Table, they were on clearance. If charming, unique linens were the only gift I got for the rest of my life I would be happy.
I really would.
