Hi, ladies. How’ve you been doing today? Question for you: have you ever had a beignet before? It’s like a light-ish donut hole type thing (DELICIOUS!), and I had
one of them a few of them for the first time this morning at brunch with my mom in the East Bay.
Then when we got home we fired up “the Skype” to wish a very Happy Mother’s Day to El Hub’s mom in the Islands.
Skype is so amazing, isn’t it? It’s hard to believe that less than 100 years ago most people kept in touch by writing letters, by hand!
To share obsessions, like the ones I daydreamed about in the car today on the drive home, they would have reached for their favorite pencil or quill pen (when were ballpoints invented?), grabbed a piece of paper and started writing. Now we use Twitter, Facebook and blogs to share our obsessions like…
1. These earrings from H&M
They’re my new favorite pair because they go with everything, and they were cheap, too (five bucks)!
2. Trader Joe’s Soft Bit Mini Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti
One word: divine. They’re not as hard as regular biscotti (which tear up the roof of my mouth), and as long as I only eat a couple of them they’re a pretty low-calorie chocolate fix.
3. Betty White on Saturday Night Live
Um, I love the Golden Girls… Seriously. 🙂 I was counting down the days until this week’s episode of SNL because actress Betty White was hosting the show last night, but then I ended up falling asleep early on the couch, so I think I’m going to watch it tonight.
