Gal Pal Day!!!
I am so excited. A friend has rented a car and we are doing a make over of her apartment!
She's coming to pick me up today...use the computer...we need to print out maps...hello! Girls! And so I've got some cheese and crackers, some coffee and ...in Vegas my sis Tiff Stagg and I went grocery and booze shopping for our rooms. By the time everyone left Vegas Stagg and I had adopted massive amounts of food, chips, crackers, cookies, champagne, vodka, bottle of wine, Mikes hard lemonade, beer. All Canadian travelling supplies for hotel hosting. So...we managed to drink all the left over booze and most of the food. I had bought an outrageous sized container of yogurt ( a lot of people don't know I am addicted to yogurt...plain with maple syrup). I mean massive...about a gallon of yogurt, organic no bad hormones...it was heavenly...we bought a cooler too...and I ate all the yogurt! I came back to the room one morning(I was in casino having coffee and playing "Wizard of Oz" slot machine) around 9 a.m. to find Stagg in his robe with a bottle of wine between his legs trying to open it with his keys. We drank everything except the Oldcastle beer. (we cleaned up the Heinekens).
Anyways...I am posting a picture of my sister's "cookie spoons". We never landed up eating them and I packed them in my suitcase. So sorry The Underground Baker you didn't get to eat them...but they will make a perfect snack to serve by this hostess today.
I hardly ever get girl time or know many chicks around here...so I am so excited for tday. We are going to take stuff to recycling and donations...she also has a pile of magazines (which we use for collage) and then we are off to Ikea, Lowes, Pottery Barn and BEYOND! I am all decked out with intense red lipstick, in a purple Hard Rock velvet embossed t-shirt and have some sneakers (we might have some heavy lifting) and Stella McCartney jeans which make my ass look great. I am so looking forwaard to this, I have to try not to be needy when she gets here. By needy I mean showing her all my scrapbooks, the art stored under the bed and my aromatherapy collection. (It's her birthday in a couple of days so in the picture above is a little "something something" for her with a Patti Smith postcard from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame)...I'm totally gonna scare her aren't I heh heh...
Okay, so here is a close up of the "cookie spoons". They are shortbread shaped like a spoon and then dipped in chocolate. a dippers delight with a dark chocolate coating no artificail preservatives free of trans fat and hydrogenate oils YUM...guilt free treats! We just need to remember to save one for Stagg!
Off to shopping therapy....
