I am actually quite nervous about how happy Brooke gets when she sees candy. Even though she looks like Billy’s mini-me at least we know that she is mine because of her love for candy.
It is completely normal to stand in the candy aisle at target for 10 minutes debating if it is worth it to get the caramel flavored candy corn or the normal kind and then get frustrated and get Milk Duds instead. I am now regretting my decision because I NEED some candy corn right now and even though Milk Duds always sound like a good idea they aren’t because the caramel in those things almost rips my teeth out every time.
A few hours after our Target extravaganza we went to Costco. I got a good picture of Billy looking at the camera but didn’t use it because in that picture you could tell I went a little overboard on the self-tanner.
The Costco goods.
3 things about this picture:
1. Gas prices are ridiculous.
2. It rained yesterday which I really love because then you feel like it is necessary to stay in your pajamas all day and eat soup.
3. Dang it, I had a third thing but I can’t remember what it was anymore.
You know how they say, ‘never go to the store hungry.’ That is bad advice because last night we went hungry and ended up getting my new favorite dinner. They had the Boudin brand clam chowder which is from the restaurant that we get our clam chowder at in San Francisco. It will be a new staple in our household.
Our romantic dinner set-up. The bag of Cheez-its really set the mood.
After dinner Billy went back to school and I went to book club. I adore my book club. There are about 10 of us and they always choose great books, we have great conversations about the book and we always have delicious treats. We read the book, ‘A Million Miles in a Thousand Years’ and I really enjoyed it. It was a little slow in the beginning and it was different than most books I usually choose but I ended up highlighting half the book because I thought it was so great.
Pumpkin bread, apples and AMAZING apple dip. I found a similar recipe for the dip HERE.
