so fortunate

I feel so fortunate to have such a caring family. Two of my Aunt's threw a fabulous bridal shower for me today! I definitely did not know what to expect. I felt rather strange having so much attention...but I better get used to it, my next shower is in April.

Chris and I got so many fabulous and really good gifts! Well, I should like them I did register for them. I know that the economy sucks, so such generosity from my Aunt's, planning and executing the shower, to my guests "showering" me with gifts means so much. I loved having everyone there today, I truly meant so much to me!

and the award goes to....

Me! I have never received an award in the land of blogs! I am so incredibly flattered and especially because I received this from the uber cool Stephanie at Kitschicagoan. She has such fabulous posts and I always read her blog! Thanks Steph!

Now, for the fun part...Here are the rules:
“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

While I am not going to deliver this award to any specific blogger...I definitely plan to spread the love.... if I read your blog, it is for one big reason: I enjoy reading it! So to all of your filling my google reader, I promise to comment more and thanks for the fabulous entertainment!!!!!

So many things to post about?

Hmmm....what shall I write about today? My gown (which arrived today), my quest to find Valentines candy on sale? What about my favorite hair styling tool, or my favorite Tuesday night meal?

Candy? Is that what you want? Well, ok, since I cannot eat it then I think I will write about it!

I have been planning on stocking up on Valentines candy....yummy candy. Well. Wouldn't you know that you cannot procrastinate and 3...count them 1, 2, THREE days after V-day, the shelves are practically wiped clean.

My first stop was a Walgreen's in Brentwood. Score. I managed to get some Dove milk chocolate. They are wrapped in pink and silver and are shaped as hearts. so cute.

Well, that is really all that I have to report. I ended up with nothing else. notta-thing. Another Walgreens? nope. Schnucks? uh-uh. Dierbergs? conversation hearts anyone? not me!

So online I go....I definitely will not make this mistake again. I MUST get Cadbury mini eggs or I will be so p-o'd. nuff said.

Now that Valentine's day has come and gone, it is time to start shopping for CANDY!

I have been patiently waiting to begin buying candy for our candy bar. I am hopping to score some fabulous pink, red, and white candies from Valentines day. Hmmmm....I am thinking M&M's...cherry sours....dove chocolates!

As far as candy that is not Valentines is my current list:
1. Swedish Fish
2. Rock Candy
3. Oreo Cookies (Black and white)
4. Samoa Cookies
5. Thin Mint Cookies
6. Wafer Cookies
7. Burnt Peanuts
8. Charleston Chews
9. Gummy Bears (Multi)
10. Sour worms (Multi)
11. Cadbury Mini Eggs (Pastel)
12. M&M’s
13. Dove Chocolates
14. Peanut M&M’s
15. Starbursts (Red, Orange, Yellow, Pink)
16. Whoppers (Brown)
17. Fiddle Faddle? Cashew carmel corn
18. Chocolate covered pretzels

What do you think? Am I missing anything? We've tossed around the idea of fortune cookies....we are doing more of a cookie/candy bar. What are your favs?

Now if only I could have all my readers come over and help me with my jars! I am going crazy over deciding which ones to use and how to arrange!!!
