Just 20 Shopping Days

"The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in its value." Charles Dudley Warner

Now we all know how much I LOVE my birthday. And since it is just weeks away I have been thinking what it is that I want for my birthday. However, for the first time that I can remember I can't think of one thing I want for my birthday. I mean I could come up with a few things here or there, but usually I am waiting for my birthday to come in order to ask for something extra special that is only birthday appropriate.

Is it quite possible that I have all I want?
Have I succeeded with having the attitude of less things, more experiences in 2010?
I am not really sure what it means, but it means I am very excited to open presents on my birthday, because I assure you it will be JUST what I wanted!

I Heart Sauces

Tonight I made a salad for dinner, just because I was craving a certain kind of salad dressing (Trader Joe's Goddess Dressing). 

I find this happens a lot. I choose where I am going to eat or what I am going to eat based on what kind of sauce or dressing I can eat.

Craving salty, extra delicious ketchup? Then of course I will be heading to In N Out
Looking for a salad dressing I can dip my whole meal in? Then El Torito Grill's Cilantro Pepita Dressing
Just need a dose of guacamole and sour cream (oh man - I love sour cream)? Then Chipotle is my choice.

What's your favorite?

(Nutter) Butter Luck Next Time

Got an email today from Ruby's about their Nutter Butter shake. I can enjoy a tasty Nutter Butter, and my boss really loves them. But much to our dismay the local Ruby's had shut down. So we ate wings instead - which were delicous - but were not as yummy sounding as a Nutter Butter Shake.

I will have to seek out the shake at another Ruby's.

Fast Flats

I was just listening to Pandora and a commercial for this incredible product came on.
They are a pair of flats (for you men read: a type of shoes) that fold up and you can carry in your purse.
Who thinks of this stuff? Brilliant!
