Linky Dinks

So I realize I have been super neglectful to my baby blog and if it were my child I'd be in prison for the way I have treated it as of late. Between working on the hell house and various other distractions, I have been a piss poor mother to it. Hopefully things are going to be less chaotic from now on and I can get back in the swing of things. I have a stock pile of bucket lists items and reviews to post, along with pictures of the house that will not die turning from zombie to lovely, little cottage. So to kick off my not so triumphant return, Linky Dinks!!

  • About once a month I turn into a chocolate and salt craving freak, like i'll stab you with a fork if you even look at my "hormonal" food stash. Well, I have found 2 items that satisfy both of these cravings and then some. First, Vosges Chocolate makes the most incredible bar called Mo's Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar. That's right people, it's chocolate and bacon insanity!!!! Sweet, sweet insanity. It is kind of pricey but it is so rich it will last you a couple munch sessions. Secondly, we have Ben and Jerry's Late Night Snack. MIND BLOWING!!!!! Chocolate covered potato chips, salted caramel and vanilla ice cream?????? Hell Yeah!!!!! Yes, your mouth will thank you for these little bites of love, your ass? Not so much
  • I am not afraid to admit that in the past month I have watched ever episode of Ugly Betty. I never gave this show the time of day when it was on the air and that was a big mistake. Yes, it is over the top and sometimes total camp, but that is the fun of it.  Marc and Amanda made the show for me, hilarious. I mean come on, when an older guy and a younger guy are set up on a blind date and introduced as "Silver Fox" and "Purple Ferret" what's not to love???
  • With the unfortunate passing of Amy Winehouse, I dug out my copy of Back to Black. This woman was such an amazing talent, her lyrics are so honest and raw you can not help but feel something listening to the earthy voice come out of this troubled pixie. A must own album and an example of true musical brilliance in a sea of modern musical shit.
  • I will never set foot inside a Forever 21 store, but I am loving there accessories right now.  Really cute, fashionable stuff and crazy cheap. I like the fact I can stock up on trendy items with out spending a ton, makes me feel less guilt when the trend fades and so does my interest in the item.
  • I have found the cutest book ever. Go The F**k to Sleep is certainly not a childrens book, althought i'm sure somewhere some parent has gotten a big suprise by it. Idiot. I snag this book as fast as I could get my stubby hands on it and it had me laughing out loud. Best part???? the audio version is read by Samuel Jackson. I don't think anything else needs to be said.
  • I have made a vow that this winter I will be a Grizzly Bear. No, seriously, I can be a bear, wolf or even a lion. SpiritHoods are adorable faux fur hats with "paws" attached. They are expensive but they are great quality, animal friendly and so cute. Rawr!!!
Alrighty, time for this chick to hit the hay. Later folks!!!
