In case you were wondering what conversations are like before you go to bed when you and your man have been together for 10 years…
El Hub: We should bake some chocolate chip cookies this weekend.
Me: YEAH WE SHOULD!
El Hub: Not those bullsh*t ones from the Toll House tube. They’re good —
Me: But they’re a little too sweet!
El Hub: … I was gonna say they all taste the same. But yeah, I guess they are a little too sweet. And they don’t have anything cool in them like M&Ms.
Me: Yuck! I don’t like M&Ms in my cookies…
El Hub: How can you not like M&Ms in your cookies?
Me: The crunchy shell. It’s just too much. It’s like it defies natural cookie law. I like my mine with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Sometimes with nuts. But not too nutty.
El Hub: You’re too nutty!
Me: Haha. I’ll get a bag of chocolate chips at the store tomorrow, and we’ll make cookies from scratch. It’s easy. We’ll just put M&Ms in yours and leave mine pristine and pure, the way chocolate chip cookies were meant to be.
No big surprise, but I woke up this morning craving cookies for breakfast.
The only ones we had in the house were the macarons I got at Bouchon Bakery yesterday in Yountville…
I guess they’ll have to suffice. We’ll need fuel for our trip to Sephora today.
Here, have one. Or two. We’ll need the sustenance.
Yes, we’re skipping work/school/watching the kids (just strap ’em in the stroller and bring ’em along!) to go look at makeup this morning. There are way too many great holiday noms on the shelves right now, and I refuse to go without you. You know the old saying: “Two makeup nerds are better than one.”
Let’s look around…
Oh, wow! — the six palettes in LORAC’s new Eye Candy Full Face Collection look like chocolate bars!
I love that…
Okay, now I need to take my mind off of food because my tummy’s rumbling…
I love these cute nail sets from Ciate and Sephora By OPI. I’m going through a phase where all I want to do on the weekends is paint my nails and nap.
These should do nicely!
OOH! Lots of cute stuff from Stila, Smashbox, Hello Kitty and Korres. Might be a good time to start crossing some of those gifts off your Christmas list. Or maybe snag something for yourself? Hey, you’ve been good (I’ve been watching).
That was fun!
We have to do this more often. How about next time I bring chocolate chip cookies instead? Let me know if you want yours with M&Ms or without.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
