So I made the Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies from Bakerella's blog! Talk about easy. I almost felt guilty for not doing something homemade but these are so perfect for Valentine's Day! I didn't end up making the frosting she suggested because the hubby doesn't like cream cheese frosting. I just used a large can of whipped Duncan Hines vanilla. Here is the finished product:
I feel like everyone in blogland has been raving about TJ Maxx lately. There are a few stores in town but nothing super close to me. [Insert Snooki whine...] So anyway, I improvised and went to Marshall's. They had a lot of good deals (I almost picked up a super cute pair of nude Guess pumps but talked myself out of it.) I ended up getting a new dog bowl, a new dog toy, a pair of sunnies and a St. Patty's Day t-shirt. My doggies are obsessed with the new bone. It has a squeaker AND crinkle filler. Whoa. The shades are Kenneth Cole and super cute. It's so hard to find sunglasses that are narrow enough to work for me and these work! The best part? I got everything for under $20! I feel like this was maybe just a preview to what I could find at TJ Maxx....I might need to make the 15 minute drive to the store. Yes, 15 minutes. I'm spoiled by having most amenities within 5 minutes from my house!
