Can this week just be over with already?

I’m so ready for two weeks off from work…and a STELLAR Online Bake Sale (There’s a sneak peak of the items that are will be up for bids tomorrow — keep reading!)

I guess I have to have hell week before paradise week right? I’d say the worst part of this week was when I had to have an emergency root canal. The only thing that made this worth it was my half numbed face. I thought my drooling days had ended when I was a baby.

After an hour in the chair, three Novocain shots, and news that I have to come back after my honeymoon to “finish” the procedure, I felt like I totally earned a ha-uge bowl of frozen yogurt.

See that white shell with all the sprinkles in it? Guess what it is.

Magic Cupcake Shell!! Say whaaat! Yeah. Our new fro-yo hangout has like 10 different types of magic shells. I died.

…and yes I put honey on my ice cream. You should too.

I think my new Spring purchase is gonna be anything with stripes. I think they’re super cute. Man, I wish Emily was my neighbor and that we were BFF’s. Maybe I could talk her in to swapping bacon ice cream for a 10 minute closet raid. I think I could grab a lot in ten minutes.

I tried to do some shopping of my own. I filled up my “to try on” bag, went and tried everything on, I took me 30 minutes. And then I walked out of the dressing room with three things. I hate when that happens.

Do you see more poor little untreated toes?

I am getting my pedicure and manicure done tonight!! CAN’T WAIT! Any suggestions on what color I should get?



I want to give you a sneak peek at what’s up for bids tomorrow on the Online Bake Sale. The bidding starts on Friday at 7 AM EST and opens up with a $15 minimum bid. Before you start bidding, please review the Rules & Logistics. All funds raised from the Online Bake Sale will go directly to Team in Training to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Set your alarm clock and keep an eye throughout the day to make sure you don’t get out bid on the goodie you want!!

Let’s get your mouth a watering!!

Oh man, that really sucks about the root canal 🙁

Red is always fun for any time of the year I think. I just painted my toes the other day, I SO miss them being pretty haha

All the goodies look awesome Steph, I think you are going to have a great turn out of bids!

I can’t wait for the bake sale to start!! 🙂

I hope your tooth feels better. I had to have a root canal late last year and they suck but frozen yogurt does make everything better!


5 Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray March 1, 2012 at 6:51 am

I hope your tooth feels better soon! That’s no fun–but I’m definitely glad for your sake that it happened *before* your trip.

Everything for the bake sale looks sooooo delicious. And even sweeter because it’s for such a good cause. 🙂

I need a pedicure, my feet have so much dead skin on them. I try to keep up with it at home with a pumice stone, but sometimes you just need someone else to do it.

Looks like you should have a great turnout from the bake sale!


7 Lacy @ NYCityEats March 1, 2012 at 7:50 am

So jealous of your trip!! Root canals are the worst, at leas your vaca can take your mind off of it a little. Everything looks so amazing, I’m drooling over here!


8 Liz @ Tip Top Shape March 1, 2012 at 9:52 am

I hate numb-face after dentist appointments. Super awkward! Hope you’re feeling better after the root canal! And wow–what a turn out for the bake sale!! I’m so excited for the bidding to start!


9 Emily @ Life on Food March 1, 2012 at 10:45 am

11 Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts March 1, 2012 at 10:58 am

Oh man, I could go for a pedicure! Hope you are feeling better after your root canal; no fun! So many great treats for the bake sale!


12 Renee @ Tortillas and Honey March 1, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Can’t wait for the bake sale! Got my list down of things to bid on.

I’ve been putting off a root canal for the past 8 months or so. I go to my dentist in a couple weeks and I’m dreading getting that lecture because I haven’t done it. 🙁


13 Steph March 1, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Well I hope you get what you want!! Keep checking throughout the day, I’ll be updating the bids 🙂
