brain dump


*my one true love {aside from the beau and hot dogs, natch} is oreos.  not just any oreos.  seasonal oreos.  i allow myself one package per special edition.  this works out particularly well at christmas when there are the original oreos with red creme filling AND the candy cane oreos {imagine an oreo + thin mint love child}.  spring brings brightly colored fillings {normally blue but this year was my second fave color, yellow!} and halloween brings orange creme filling.  i got my seasonal allotment this weekend and have been savoring the sublime pleasure of a fresh oreo dipped in milk. 

le sigh...glitter, feathers, and beads. what's not to love?!

*this weekend really got me in the mood for fall.  blue skies, temps in the low 70s, and nesting!  i baked the season's first patch of pumpkin chocolate chip squares for tonight's ladies night/DWTS viewing.  i made glitter pumpkins a la martha stewart and have a few more to spraypaint in metallic gold.  my mama bought me this amaze-balls wreath from pier one.  i could live in that store.  and i cooked up big batches of this and this...some for dinner this week and some in the freezer for later.  now all i need is a big pot of mums for the front porch...

can you guess which one is me?

*the beau and i went to an engagement party this weekend for one of my favorite couples.  delicious food, bartenders making old-fashioneds, my beautiful friends, and a historic home {stonewall jackson was married in front of the fireplace and robert e. lee lived there for four years!}.  what could be better? 

*as much as every bit of good taste in my body wants to hate k$sha, i can't help it.  i like her songs.  they are so awesomely bad.  the girl is a glitter freak and "sings" a good motivational treadmill song like nobody's business.  who am i to deny the power of a catchy tune?  feel free to judge me.  i'm judging myself.

*speaking of treadmill, i fell off the fit train last week while travelling for work.  it pretty much took every ounce of energy i had to take off my make-up at the end of the day, so running didn't cut it.  back on board tonight.

*busy, busy week for me, so you may not hear from me for a few days. wish me luck!

Love the wreath. And can't wait to pick up some oreos and lots of candy for the trick or treaters. They never come to our place, but I always like to have candy just in case. I'm terrible at photos, but I'm going to guess that you are the girl in the red dress? Good luck with the work travel!

you and i could hang out and eat oreo's forever! the seasonal ones are my favorite too. of course then we will never look like bikini girl, but whatever.

i hate the guessing game! i guessed last time you posted a picture and never found out if i was right!!!

oh yes- holiday oreos. do you like the christmas ones that are dipped in white chocolate? i allow myself 2 cookies per year... because they are THAT bad for you! {and I eat so much other crap all holiday long! hahah!}

i am more than with you on the oreos. in fact, i have to limit myself to just like 1 roll instead of the whole package because once i dip those cookies in milk it is all over for me. I am obessed! Love ya
