If anyone has any hints on making a delicious puffed wheat square, please advise. I like mine dark, with lots of cocoa. I'd say just whip up a batch and send it to me, but I have this thing about not eating things other people have made, just another strange weird fact about me. Restaurants are fine, but I avoid bake sales like the plague. I'm like a baking-bigot, some sort of anti-home cooking person, unless I know the person who baked it, have been in their kitchen and seen with my own eyes that it is substantially clean and then I will consume freely. Of course I will eat whatever The Fan makes, my Granny, my sister-in-law Susan, my cousin Kelly, MJ, Pepper and a few others. Otherwise, sorry. It's getting crumpled up in the napkin while you're looking the other way if I don't know you that well.
I'm scouring for a little dress for Loopy to wear to our cousin's "Twist of Lime" theme wedding in July. Then I had an a-ha! moment and decided to get something from Lilly Pulitzer. It might be a snap to find something Lilly at Winners or Marshalls for her but in the meantime, I found these two sassy numbers that just scream "Palm Beach" for myself. Without sleeves... with sleeves. Both.
I might need something for the night before the wedding, don't you think? Lime shoes and a clutch, of course.
Veto told me over the weekend that if we do very well on the sale of the property we are flipping in July then he will take me to Yankee Stadium this summer before they close it. Pray for me. House prices are rising where we live at a scandalous rate. I have trouble falling asleep at night because of all the things I want to fix up in that place.
Lastly, a word of advice: stay away from Drillbit Taylor. It was the only movie we managed to see on the weekend and I was expecting something more like Wedding Crashers, but with less Vince Vaughn. Apparently, you need a whole lot of Vince Vaughn (the latest addition to my celebrity crush list) to make a movie that funny. I'd like to agree that "you get what you pay for" but we paid full admission price to see this movie and I wouldn't have watched the whole thing if it were on network television.
No cupcakes. And you know how I love to give out cupcakes.
