Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made chocolate chip cookies yesterday, as you may have inferred from the title.

They were so good! Especially warm from the oven... Why am I writing about it? Well, for one, this is my blog and I can write about whatever the heck I want to, and two, because I ate way too many of said cookies, and now I have a cookie hangover.

I think the only cure is a big glass of milk, an aspirin, and another cookie.

Anthropologie home is the love of my life. Ok, not really. But I adore their home section. Their bedding, mirrors, furniture, ahh i just love it!

Too bad it is so expensive that I would have to sell myself into slavery to afford it. That is a bit extreme, but really, when you have almost no money, something that costs $300 may as well be $3 million.

Probably my favorite thing is their crazy hardware! I bought two knobs last time I was in their store. Just two, random knobs that I have no use for but desperately needed. If I ever become an eccentric collector, I think my collection of choice will be knobs.

Any way, I occasionally peruse Anthropologie's home section and drool. I'm also working on how to re-create some of their stuff at home. We'll see how it turns out!

It's the little things...

Wow, it has been forever! Sorry folks.

Any who, lately I've been thinking about a few little things that make me happy. I shall now list them.

1. Over-easy eggs. I had them for breakfast this morning, and realized I'd forgotten how incredibly delicious they are! So much better than... hard eggs? Is that what they are called? I just went blank. Moving on.

2. Snuggling with Johnny. Johnny is my dog, fyi. He is not a handsome British guy.

3. Painting my toenails. Even though it is winter, and my feet don't often show, I enjoy keeping my toes painted.

4. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Oh man, they are so good! I just ate one, and I think I may go for round two. In the words of the Berries and Cream little lad, "Mmm! Delicious!"

5. Gilmore Girls. I freaking love that show! It is a never-fail pick me up. That and Dr. Pepper. (Which I have yet again quit drinking. Mostly.)

6. Coloring with crayons. I find this extremely theraputic! Thanks to my 3 year old cousin for reminding me.

7. The Beattles. I love their music, particularly their early stuff. Major mood-booster.

8. SUNSHINE! The past two days have been *gasp* clear and sunny! Wonder of wonder, miracle of miracles! (Now I want to watch Fiddler on the Roof...) Any way, I have all the blinds open today, and I'm considering laying on the carpet in the patch of sun on the floor. 

Well, eight is a somewhat random number, but I am going to go make another sandwich, and turn on Gilmore Girls while sitting on the floor in the sun.  Tee hee!
