...silly little things that make me feel old(er):

1) I now get sweat on my upper lip. This never used to happen. Apparently I have finally reached the age where there is enough 'insulation' above my top lip to create an overheating situation. Mortifying.

2) It now costs 28 cents to mail a postcard (what?!). In the year I was born, a person could mail a postcard for 7 cents.

3) My feet are killing me... I'm actually considering buying Gold Bond Pain Relieving Foot Cream. Okay, people, Gold Bond makes me think of eighty-year-olds. I have nothing against senior citizens but I find that I now require a product that is probably geared toward an older demographic and that makes me feel sort of sad.

Too much information (over-share)?

friends who are foodies

Thank goodness for friends who are foodies. It's so nice that they appreciate food (and talk about food) as much as I do.

Here are some random food notes about my friends:

N.C. – Would drive 12 hours to Montana in order to buy salad dressing from McKenzie River Pizza and bring it back to Oregon in a cooler. Okay, slight exaggeration. A visit to friends in Montana was the main purpose of the trip... the dressing was a bonus.

T.H. – Loves tomatoes so much that she would eat one like an apple, no knife needed.

A.L. – Loves healthy food. Hates cilantro.

K.H. – Coffee!!! Enough said.

L.Q. – Can always be counted on to mention a particular food craving RIGHT when my shift starts at work and then I have to think about food while my stomach gurgles in desperation until my shift is over. Hello? Spicy Street Noodles!

S.P. – Has been to every restaurant in the Portland Metro area (I've been to 2% of them). Currently consuming Greek food in order to satisfy 'pregger' cravings. { p.s. – thanks for the peas! }

K.R. – Is passionate about Dr. Pepper. Hates sandwiches.

oh. happy. day.

I'm so thrilled that Roberta Freymann has finally opened an online shop for her Roberta Roller Rabbit store!

In the past, I could never just skip off to New York (or to California) so there was never a way for me to purchase from her shop... but now, cha-ching! Oh, the beauty of online shopping.

I love the patterns of her current online offerings. The tea towels pictured above are my current faves. I wish she had tea towels made from her MONKEY fabric!

We're still on a strict budget but when the nights start to turn cold this fall, I just might have to treat myself to one of her quilts. I shall call it an early x-mas present.
