We’ve made it to another Friday! Anything fun happening this weekend? I have two children’s birthday parties to go to. I think I’ll show up to one or both like Kim K at the Met Gala. Subtle. Basic Black. It’s appropriate, right?
This is NOT a favorite, but more of a cry from my heart. Have y’all heard that Nabisco workers were/are on strike? Well, I’m not kidding when I say that Oreos are one of my favorite treats, and I will try all the specialty ones. I have done two different Oreo taste tests with friends ranking the odd flavors. And I have shown great strength recently by not buying the apple cider donut flavored ones, but I took this picture of the shelves at Target. It has shaken me to my core. If I don’t get the white fudge covered ones at Christmas, then what is the point of continuing on?
Since Oreos are in short supply, these have been my treat at night before bed. I mean antioxidants? Hello, health goddess.
I usually try to wait until the actual first day of fall to engage in all the “basic” girl flavors and scents. But you know what? I’m all about that joy curation these days. Since last Saturday, I’ve had three fall flavored coffees and one pumpkin scone. Come at me, scarf weather. I shouldn’t continue to eat my fall feelings, so if you want your kitchen to smell like autumn, get these Mrs. Meyers cleaning products and dish soap.
I’ve mentioned this brand before, and my love for them is still strong. When they first came out with these, I immediately ordered a giant box of them. I’m nothing if not eager. Now you can find them more places and don’t have to order them. I’ve seen them at Target recently. If you see them, grab you a bag or five. They’re delightful.
My post on Wednesday was about my autoimmune disease and how
dumb it is how I’ve dealt with it. After my diagnosis, I looked a lot to this lady for some wisdom and encouragement through her cookbooks. She recently came out with a book about chronic illness, how food has played a huge role in her healing, and her faith journey through it all. You might think…”who would want to read that?” This girl. If you know someone with a chronic illness, it might be something they might be interested in reading.
These gals (and a friend) watching a dance class while their big sister was doing her thing (she did NOT inherit my coordination-praise the Lord) was a favorite this week. It was either let them creep from the door or pull them away and let them scream bloody murder. I chose the former. They were mesmerized.
Thanks for stopping by today, and please throw up some T’s and P’s for Nabisco. Y’all, in times like these America needs Oreos.
