Happy Friday, lovelies!
If you’re on The Frozen Tundra, then you’ve spent the majority of your week in the hell that is rush hour.
Fact: On Wednesday, for the first time ever while driving, I flipped someone the bird. Yes, I’m one of those people who is afraid that the driver they give the finger to will have a gun in their glove compartment.
But if someone tried to sideswipe you in their forest green mini-van, you’d probably be compelled to do the same.
I like to think that I really made it count.
For those members of the group who haven’t been trapped behind the wheel, I hope you’ve made the most of your extra hours by engaging in craft, mirror-gazing or other vanities. Gold stars all-around.
In the Spirit of Friday, since yesterday felt like a Friday, I feel like basking in some of life’s little luxuries.
So here’s what I can’t live without that makes life worth living:
- Champagne. I always try to keep a four-pack of Cook’s around. You never know when a splash of the bubbly is going to be just the thing to right your world. Plus, a mini-bottle means you never have to feel overly-committed to the whole thing.
- Good chocolate. If I have learned nothing else from the food blogging community in the last year, it’s that you absolutely must be armed to the teeth at all times with high-quality chocolate.
- Black stilettos. Even if you can’t afford designer clobber, you’ll never go wrong if you have a completely unreasonable pair of sky-high black heels. Or that’s my theory, anyway. Next to a strand of pearls, they’re probably The Best investment you can make in your wardrobe.
- Great recipes. You might be snowed in. You might need to be That Friend at the potluck who brings The Best Dish Ever. You might want to treat yourself to something wonderful. I always try to have a mental list running of recipes that I’d just love to try. This weekend? Cake Batter Bark (I can’t remember who dropped this one into my comment bin, but Thank You!) is on deck and Cookie Dough Dip is in the hole.
What are the little luxuries you can’t live without?
