[Unpacked my kitchen stuff and my appliances are all out on the counter. Easy access = actual use. Smoothies FTW!] | [Saks September Fashion catalog. I don't shop at Saks, but apparently my landlord's daughter does. And since they don't actually live here, what's the harm in browsing the pages a little, right?] | [Lip gloss pencil] | [Last night's game. We lost, but I got to spend a wonderful 3 hours staring at Tony Romo walk the sidelines with a headset on]

It's been exactly a week since our stuff was finally delivered, and I've been in major unpacking and cleaning mode all week (with a small project for my old employer thrown in...yay for work!). The dust is really kicking my allergies and eczema into high gear, so we're heading to Ikea this weekend to grab some more storage and unpack the rest of this stuff. Things are fitting in quite nicely, though!

Like Coconut Cake?

Like Coconut Cake?

If you love coconut cake as much as I do, let me suggest this luscious combo from Nugget.  It's the Angel Coconut Cake, featuring a white cake with a hint of rum, toasted organic coconut flakes and whipped topping, but... with the crushed pineapple filling, which is the standard filling in the Slice of the Islands Coconut Cake.   You have to special order this, because it's a combination of two separate cakes.  Got that?  Let's review, it's the Angel Coconut Cake, but w/ the Pineapple Filling, a lovely addition to any Mother's Day or birthday celebration.  Yum!
