Things Loved In March

1. You are all going to hate me for this, but…

Nestle’s Ultimates cookies are ridiculously amazing. They are pre-made YUMMY chocolate chip cookies with caramel inside. Caramel! All you have to do is throw them in the oven to bake–and then just try to restrain yourself from eating them all. You can’t do it. It’s impossible. They come in packages of twelve and G had 9 of them eaten within an hour.

2. Chenille Mary-Jane Slipper Socks from Old Navy.

I got these for my hospital stay when I delivered Kate and they are just the coziest, softest things! Plus they have little grippers on the bottom which I really like. I now have a couple of pairs and I wear them around the house daily.

3. This boyfriend cardigan from Old Navy.

Now I know I said about a year ago that I wasn’t going to buy any more cardigans, but I couldn’t help myself. This one is so soft and made out of T-shirt material so it’s the perfect amount of comfy casualness–I just had to have it. And once I got addicted to one of them I may or may not have needed to buy 2 more. I have this (irrational?) fear that my closet has a cardigan quota–only I don’t know what that number is, so one day I’ll walk in with yet another cardigan and the whole place will implode.

Luckily for me 29 is not that number.

4. Cougar Town.

I love this show. It’s about a 40-something woman’s life after divorce. Courtney Cox’s character “Jules” is lovable and her sidekicks are hilarious! Even the ones you think would be lame–like the loser ex-husband, and the ditzy blond–have won me over. My favorite is Ellie–the bitchy yet endearing best friend. I love bitchy yet endearing. Such a great combination. It’s a great show, so check it out if you’re looking for something new!

5. Straight teeth! I’m thrilled to say I got my braces off yesterday and I just love my new teeth! Unfortunately Google Images doesn’t have any pictures of my new teeth on file yet so photos will have to wait. But trust me, they look fabulous. Of course you realize this means I’m now vainer than ever, right? Not to mention very smiley.

    Those cookies!! I’ve been loving boyfriend cardigans too, I may have 2 or 7 in my closet as of recently.

  2. 2

    My sister-in-law totally fooled me with those cookies for years! I thought they were homemade, and that she was this amazing baker.. little did I know how sneaky she was.

    I. LOVE. Cougartown. My fiance and I are sooo addicted to that show, and NONE of our friends watch it. The ex-husband is my favorite… ” I smell something weird. I think it’s in my nose…”

    How about Modern Family? Are you a fan?

    Oh yum those cookies sound awesome. When I make break ‘n bakes I only bake four at a time to prevent the endless munching…it helps.

    I will have to remember those slipper socks – they sound perfect!

    I just recently found your blog thru younghouselove. I have to say I love it and I about freaked when I saw your name! It’s not often you find another GIRL with the name Dusty! Congrats on the baby!

    I’m obsessed with cardigans, too. So comfortable and versatile. I think you need 10 more. At least.

  12. 12

    I didn’t know you had braces! I must say congrats. I had braces when I was 26 and wore them for 2 almost 3 years. So glad I paid for them myself. I love my teeth! I just need to wear my retainer more. I’m such a slacker!

  13. 13

    You have put those cookies in my BRAIN! Mmmmmmmm. Going to sweetflutterguy Matt into going to the grocery store. Mwahaha.

    @LizzieBeth–I’ve never seen Modern Family. How do you like it?

    @Geezees–What a great time to get them off!

    @Dusty–Oh wow! You’re right, it’s VERY rare to come across another GIRL named Dusty. I’m so glad we found each other! šŸ˜€ Welcome, and thanks for dropping me a line!

    @Amber–I didn’t have them for long. I only needed to wear them for 8 weeks, thank goodness!

    @Melissa–LOL! You won’t be disappointed!

    Congrats on getting the braces off (in March!). I remember getting mine off right before Senior pictures in highschool and how great it felt!!

    I can’t find those cookies but I’m looking! It’s probably (no, definitely a good thing though).
