1. I've tasted and seen that S*Bucks' Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate is goooooooooood. I mean, GOOD. (Thanks again, Jenny.) I've also seen that one small cup costs $3.25. And I read that they contain as many calories as a Big Mac. Which is why I'm committed to making them at home. I am dedicated, oh yes I am.
2. I went thrift store shopping with a $20 bill in my pocket. I came home with seven tops, one fitted bedsheet, and $1.40 leftover. I do love me some secondhand shopping. And since I had almost no dressy/dress-casual tops for this fall & winter, I certainly was in need. I've been told I wear too much black and not enough color/prints (How, I wonder, is this not considered rude?). So I tried my best to vary my selections.
6. One morning this week, Ellia came in to wake me up (been SO tired this week! [not pregnant. see #3]), and she said,
"Mama, can you hold me? And then you can get some coffee."
And then I died. And then I prayed earnestly that my kids would never, ever grow up past the adorable toddler age.
7. If anyone runs into the housecleaning fairies, tell them I've got a bone to pick and they'd better high-tail it over to my house immediately, if not sooner. I'd be just horrified if anyone stepped foot in here--it's cluttery, sticky, dusty, fingerprint-y, crumb-y, and messy. I'm going to blame it on #3 again, and also on the housecleaning fairies. I'm expecting the filming crew of Hoarders: Buried Alive to show up any minute.
