Thinking Out Loud: All THE EXCITING THINGS!!


OH WAIT! I mean, oh…wait…yeah, that’s better. Sorry for screaming. I’m uh, just well…I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED! Shit, Heather, compose yourself wouldja?! Man, you let one month go by without a good round of ToL and Broccoli loses her marbles. And then she start’s talking in the third person. Wow. I have lost it. Ok umm, let’s just agree that this will never happen again…like EVER!

The thing I love most about Amanda’s link up (besides it’s obvious ADD-embracing qualities) is the fact that I get to TALK to you! It’s like meeting mid-week and catching up over coffee…or tea…which makes me think of cookies…which reminds me…

So Delicious Soymilk Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Holy mother of god, have you guys tried this?!

I’ve totally scoped out this So Delicious cookie dough ice cream frozen dessert multiple times but, the other day, in a moment of sheer cookie dough desperation (and the powerfully convincing speech of a friend…that went like “ya know, ya can’t really go wrong with cookie dough”), it was finally mine! Needless to say, I had a spoon in my hand minutes after walking indoors with it and ohhhhhhMYLANTA! My only criticism is that it doesn’t have more cookie dough. The ice cream frozen dessert itself tastes like cookie dough, but after getting halfway through the pint, I only found about four pieces. I guess what I’m saying is that I wish it was a little more like this!

Yeah, I really should NOT have Googled that! 😯

Ok, let’s talk about something else since I’m drooling all over myself now…and also seriously thinking about clicking on that little “order now” button when I know good and damn well I can make cookie dough on my own! Yeah, let’s moooooove on (see what I did there)! 😉

Tori's Graduation - Selfie

Look guys, Tori’s a college GRADUATE!!

My wittle baby seeeester…all growed up! Man, it feels like just yesterday I was moving out of mom and dad’s and leaving behind a knobby-kneed ten-year old little girl. Time really does fly! I’m so SO proud of her and I can’t wait to see where the future takes her!

After graduation, we all headed out for dinner, but I’ll talk more about that in a post next week…what I want to talk about now is WHY I didn’t manage to sneak one of these into the restaurant…

Bean's Creek Champagne

Remember that metric ton of wine I bought on my birthday?

Well, I’ve never been much of a champagne person UNTIL my favorite winery helped change my mind! After having TWO glasses of the Brut during the tasting (thank you, person who decided to pay and not show up…your wine was properly disposed of!) and getting a sample of the strawberry sparkling wine afterwards, I couldn’t help myself!

Which reminds me…


Maybe I shouldn’t shop on Cyber Monday.

I’m not sure what got into me, but before I’d found anything for the people on my Christmas list this year, I’d already found three things for myself! Including this STEAL of a bookcase on! I swear I’m not usually so quick to spend money on myself but I mean HOW could I say no to this dream of a piece of furniture?!

It’s so modern…it’s so sleek…

Bookcase with Cookbooks

It soooo doubles as a WINE RACK!! 😀

And also showcases my collection of cookbooks, foodie magazines, a couple of knick knacks, and last year’s birthday bowl! Confession: I had NO IDEA where I was going to put this thing when I bought it. Whoops? But once assembled IN the kitchen, I figured it was a hell of a lot easier to leave it there! I kid, I kid. No, really I thought it looked kinda nice…and now I can add that to the GSD list! 😉

Wanna see what else I bought myself? Ok…but you have to promise not to judge!


I know what you’re thinking: “Heather, don’t you already have a serious bar problem stash? Isn’t your pantry bursting at the seams? What on earth do you need with A HUNDRED & TWENTY Quest bars?!?” And this is my argument: Come on, it was a DEAL, maaaaaan! How could I turn down $18 a box AND free shipping? Tell me! HOW?!

Yep, that’s what I THOUGHT!

Now if you’ll excuse me, one of ‘dem s’mores babies is calling my name! 😉


Be sure to check hop on over to Spoons and check out all the randomness this week!

What exciting things are on YOUR mind today?

What’s the last thing you bought yourself?
