shopping is fun

I found the Coffemate Peppermint Mocha I mentioned in the last post.  And lets say it might sound magical, but it doesn't taste magical.  I was quite thrilled to find it at our local supermarket and despite the I-normally-wouldn't-pay-these-three-whole-dollars-for-this-novelty-item, I did.  And kind of regret it.  But I guess I would've never known if I had not tried it!  So I've been pouring it into my coffee for the past three mornings.  I figured I've paid for it now, so now I'll use it until it becomes an acceptable amount to toss away.  :-P  It's not terrible, the peppermint (or maybe it's the mocha part?) just tastes unacceptably artificial for my palatte.

In other recent news...

I picked up this top from Old Navy.  I don't usually shop there, but I occasionally go in to browse clothes for the husband.  It was tax-free weekend, so it was $9 out the door!  I really like it cause it's like... so happy.  :oP  The grey one was super cute too but they didn't have anymore in my size.

Someone gifted us with a Pier 1 Imports giftcard, so we went to find something(s) we liked.  :]  I got just the bowl in this collection and LOVE. IT.  It makes me happy to eat my cereal (or ice cream or whatever) out of it.  :]  I also really liked the cups/mugs too but... we didn't really need them.  (And you kind of have to buy them in pairs right?  Cause one mug would be weird....?)

We checked out Pier 1 in Ithaca and found this wall decor GIANT SPOON (and fork):

This picture doesn't convey how big it was at all!  The specs are 10.5"W x 4"D x 46.5"H and it is basically 75% of my height.  :-P  But they SADLY did not have it at the store we went to here (in the Cambridge area) so we had to settle for other things.


  1. you would want a giant spoon (or fork) to put on your wall why???

  2. Hi Alvina! Just wanted to respond to your comment (in case you didn't check back):

    I normally don't sell my sewing products, but I'd be open to it! If you can email me some more details about what you're looking for, I can try to put together a custom quote for you. My email is

    Btw, love the yellow top!

  3. a giant spoon sounds pretty epic.
