chips and chocolate

Tonight, I made a special trip to WalMart for a bag of Sun Chips just so my family could hear for themselves how loud that 100% compostable bag really is. Emily, clearly, was just shocked.

And then Em and I waited and waited for Phil to finally get home so we could try to get him to eat this...
We thought it looked like white chocolate.  It was really candle wax.  Our trick was a miserable fail because after a few flips from one hand to the other, he looked at us and said, "This is candle wax."

The excitement around here never ends.

She neglects to mention that the other side of the candle wax had the impression of a candle holder in it. Clearly wax. Plus it felt like wax. and smelled like juniper honey marshmallow estrogen surprise. Not at all convincing.

haha sounds like a pretty clever trick ;) maybe next time without the candle imprint...

it would've been totally awesome... and it would've worked... except for the candle imprint part. and the fact that i made it totally obvious that it wasn't candy. oops.

Totally thought that the wax was half of a boiled egg. It made me hungry. No lie.

what i've been reading

I decided to try something new for the blog today, and I'm joining my first ever Show Us Your Books link-up with Stephanie and Jana to share the books I read in June!

Party Girl, by Rachel Hollis:  A few weeks ago I logged into my Amazon account, only to realize that I'd been the beneficiary of $17.00 in credit thanks to a class action lawsuit I didn't even know I was a part of.  I decided to download Rachel Hollis' series since I am a big fan of her website, The Chic Site, and had been dying to read her books for quite some time.  Party Girl is the first book in the series, and I read it in a few long porch sitting sessions over the course of a weekend.  The book is based on the author's life, and how she got her start as a Hollywood party planner.  I was rooting for the main character the whole time, and the book was fun, light, and made me laugh.  Which is something we could all probably use these days.

The Good Girl, by Mary Kubica: I've heard that this is si…

there's no place like home

Well, it's been a long week.

I mean long in the sense that I got home at 7:00 last night, after being away for work since Monday, and I immediately changed into some lounge wear.

And then I came down into the kitchen and Matt said, "Um, I think your sweatpants might be on backwards."


I left for my trip on Monday afternoon.  The rental car pickins were slim at Enterprise, so I went with a Ford Focus because I have a Ford Focus, so I wouldn't have to learn any tricky new radio knobs or windshield wiper controls.  I believe I fall squarely into the category of seasoned Ford Focus expert.

And then I drove the first 1.6 miles in the rental Focus in low gear.  It felt a little sluggish, but it didn't even occur to me to check and make sure the right gear was selected until I went to shift it into "park" at the gas station and realized the gear shift was on L.

The rest of the drive was problem free, and when I settled into my r…

and i was the english major

My brother and sister and I have a group text, and it really gets busy during election season.  Last Monday, as the Iowa caucus results came it, let's just say there were a lot of corny jokes.

It was a-maize-ing.

I knew the group text would be busy on Saturday night because of the Republican debate, but I didn't realize we would be discussing such controversial topics.

Can't wait until convention season.
