Everything’s More Fun with Suz…Even Shopping

Just in case we forgot, winter is coming. It was easy to be lulled into complacency given 75-degree days earlier this week. And then yesterday…snow. And today…a high of 34 degrees. Alrighty then.

Thursday, when it was still warm outside, I actually spent a good part of the day baking. I’m not really much of a baker, but I contribute a cake or two each year to John’s office’s United Way fundraiser (they sell off pieces of baked goods and donate the proceeds). This year I kept it pretty simple with cheater’s coconut cake (made it last year too) and chocolate bundt cake with killer chocolate sauce. John bought six pieces – by my count, almost half of each cake. Very…John.

Friday, Suz and I braved the snow with a drive to Buffalo to check out a few antique stores. It is a testament to how fond I am of Susie that not only will I shop with her (I really don’t like shopping), I actually enjoy shopping with her (I really, really don’t like shopping with others). We had a blast, cruising around and even enjoying a totally tasty junk-food lunch at Culver’s. Which put us both in a coma. Turns out even better-quality junk food is still, well, junk.

Moderate it: bake it, then give it away! Works like a charm, unless your husband buys half of what you baked and brings it back home. Hmmm…

    Just don't make me go to the Mall of America (often - I actually had fun the one time you and I hit Nordstrom), it literally makes me ill. It's stupid, I know, but I've probably only ever been there 10 times, maybe less. Fun and awe the first couple of times. Remember when it was cool to eat out there? But since the late 90s, only if forced. Or with you :)

    I LOVE it that John bought almost all of the goodies. hilarious!!! As long as he eats it, eh?

    I had the BEST day shopping with you too, my friend! I'll turn you into a shopper yet...;-)
