Special Delivery & Pancakes For Dinner!!..

Posted Jul 10 2013 8:32pm

Hello Everyone!  Happy Thursday!  I hope your week is going well.  So far the weather has been great this week.  It’s been beautiful sunshine all week with lots of heat and humidity.  There has been a chance of rain everyday but :knock on wood: it hasn’t rained!  Yay!  I’ve been expecting to walk out of work everyday in a rainstorm but so far that hasn’t been the case.  I’m so happy.  I cannot stand the rain.  I also cannot stand the humidity.  It is really making my hair not cooperate for a change.  I hate that.  I would like to get the keratin treatment done to calm my hair down but it’s a little too expensive for me to swing now.  Maybe sometime in the future.  Is your hair naturally straight, curly, or wavy?  Do you like it?  Mine is naturally VERY curly/wavy/frizzy and I hate it.  I wish it was straight or it could at least could be managed and look nice curly.

Anyway, I was so excited when I got home from work because there was a HUGE box waiting outside for me!  I knew that a package was coming but still it’s so exciting to see a package waiting for you to open it!  I had a gift card to use from Amazon that I earned from completing surveys .  So I ended up getting a few things that Mike and I wanted.  Mike got a skin for his ipod to use at the gym.  Then I got use bell jars that I have always wanted!!

I wanted these jars so that I could make fun drinks in them or salad dressings or just use them as a glass.  I think they are so cute!  Do you have bell jars?  What do you use them for?

I also decided to get a chopper/shredder/mandolin.

I chose this one because it has a bunch of different attachments so you can grate, shred and slice.  I don’t know about you but I hate slicing onions so if I can use this for various recipes to cut up onions then I will. I’m excited to try it. I hope that it works well.  I think it will be great to cut thin slices of apples and make apple chips with it too.  So I’ll definitely be trying that in the fall once it’s apple season.

I also purchased a baking set from Rachael Ray.

I have several of Rachel Ray’s cookware items and I can honestly say that I love them all!  They are easy to clean and anything that I cook in her cookware cooks evenly and stays hot. I am a huge fan of her products and I will continue to purchase them.  I have a few bakeware items from other companies and I find the baking sheets are ruined after using them only a few times.  I’m interested to see how hers hold up.  I will be sure to report back and let you know how they are.  I hope it’s good!

So those are my items that I purchased.  After I went through the box, Mike and I ventured over to Men’s Warehouse so he could pick up the other part of the tux that he needed for the wedding that he is in on Friday.  I am just a guest and not in the wedding which is fine by me.  The wedding is for his friend.  So I am going to support Mike.  I can’t wait to see Mike in a tux.  He will be so handsome!

After we got his tux, we went to iHop for dinner!!  I got a pancake combo which is my favorite thing to order there.

They gave so much food!  There really was no way I was going to finish everything so I am happy that I have breakfast for today!  Yay!!  I love leftovers as long as it’s something that I really like.  I will happily take iHop any time!  They are great to follow in Twitter too!  I’ve been winning gift cards at least once a month every time that they offer them on Twitter.  So be sure to follow them if you like iHop as much as I do and want to win $5 gift cards!

Alright, well that is all I have for today.  Have a lovely Thursday!
