Tonight is the egg game, which brought up the question “What should we do for an appy?” Just before Christmas I found a recipe for Pull Apart Pizza Bread that sounded interesting and because I am still in the “Eat Everything In Sight” mentality from Christmas I decided I should make it. This meant a trip to the grocery store before meeting up with friends at lunch. After trips to three grocery stores I found everything except fresh basil, every store was out … what is everyone making that they need fresh basil? Since it was time to meet up with our friends I decided to forgo the fresh basil and used dry but as we were eating lunch I received a text from our egg game friends saying they were bringing an appy. That meant I had more time to find fresh basil and also that we had time after lunch to run a few more errands because I didn’t have to go home and make my bread. One of our stops took us to Bed Bath and Beyond where I found my first score. My BaByliss blow dryer, which I love and have had for almost seven years, is starting to show it’s age and will soon need to be replaced. I was surprised to see that Bed Bath and Beyond carries them so I stopped to check out the price. I think the price is comparable to what I would pay at home so I decided to wait rather than pay an extra 30% because of the exchange, but I did come across a BaByliss travel blow dryer.
It is so tiny and so cute (yes I like cute when blow drying my hair) and I think it works just as well as my full size one. I just had to buy this item for my suitcase when we fly places but I think I will try it out for a while and if it works as well as I think it will, I will use it instead of buying a new full size blow dryer. When you live in a small space you need small things 🙂
My second score came when we stopped to fill up one of our propane tanks. Normally I wait in the truck while hubby does this chore but today I decided to go in the store and see if they carried the Sonoran White Chocolate Ale that I have fallen in love with. I search the shelves thoroughly but could not find it. As I was waiting at the counter to pay for the propane fill I asked the clerk if they carried it and to my surprise they did! It was on the bottom corner of the cooler and I had to fight to get it out but I won and am now the proud owner of six bottles!!!
Can the day get any better? Let’s hope the egg game proves profitable tonight 🙂
PS … Ingrid I did not win the 1.6B on the Power Ball but I did win $4.00 so I doubled my money, and yes I reinvested it so there is still hope I will win $40M!
Until next time …
