For those of you new to my blog, "Little Things That Make Me Stupid Excited" is a feature I post on the first day of each month. It's like Oprah's Favorite things - if Oprah was really cheap. And loved to shop at Kohl's.
Now, let me make clear that I am not hawking or reviewing products here. Nobody's paying me or providing me with anything. LTTMMSE is just a little outlet for me to exclaim over and dissect little materialistic things that make me ridiculously excited. Sidenote: It doesn't take much, people.
Grab the button below and link on up in the comments if you want to make your own list! I'd love to read what makes you STUPID excited too!! And if you'd like to see my past lists, they're all linked up on my LTTMMSE page.
Little Things That Make Me Stupid Excited
I've got *TEN* stupid exciting things for the month of March! Let's get started, shall we?
Shamrock Shakes from McDonald's
Let's just start with the big daddy, shall we? McDonald's Shamrock Shake. The holy grail of milkshakes, available only around St. Patty's Day at participating McDonald's. It's my favorite thing about March, and no, I'm not kidding.
Lemonade Girl Scout Cookies
Oh, Lemonades. This is the first year I have bought you, but I can already tell we are going to have a long, loving relationship. Well, long in the 48-hour sense, since I plan to eat all of you before then. I was a bit nervous when I chose you over Peanut Butter Patties this year and reduced my Thin Mints quota down to 3 boxes. But after tasting you for the first time today, I know I made the right decision. YUM.
"Wholesome Earth" Nail Polish by Sally Hansen (purchased at Target)
I've been really into dark nail polishes lately. Black's a little too goth for me, so I tend towards the browns or really deep purples. I'm loving this color from Sally Hansen..."Wholesome Earth." Sounds like dirt, and kinda looks like dirt too in the bottle, but on my toes it is gorge. As in gorge-ous, not a geologic gorge. Let's just stay away from the dirt references, okay?
Green Trench Coat from Kohl's
This coat. OMG, this coat. I love it. LOVE it. I got it at Kohl's. And yes, it's from the Lauren Conrad collection. Don't judge me. It's CUTE. It's STUPID cute. You know you want one for spring.
Bradford Pear Trees from my Neighborhood
Oh, spring is so close I can almost taste it! And my favorite part of spring is when the Bradford Pears start to bloom. It only lasts about a weekend, but when it's here I feel like my neighborhood is a white floaty fairy land. Can't wait for this year's bloom!
Lean Cuisine Garlic Chicken Spring Rolls
I discovered these little babies when I was cruising the aisles of Super Target last month. They had their free sample lady out and she said to me "Excuse me, but would you like to try a Lean Cuisine Garlic Chicken Spring Roll?" And I said, "Why, yes I would, please," followed quickly by a "Where the hell have you guys been hiding these things?!" I might have scared her a little. Anyway, I really like these. And the fact that they're Lean Cuisine? Even bettah. Not to be confused with buttah. Because buttah and Lean Cuisine don't get along very well.
Bento Box at Hiro 88
There is this awesome Japanese restaurant downtown in my city that has the BEST deal for lunch. It's a bento box that includes miso soup, salad with that awesome carrot-whatever salad dressing, rice and your choice of 2 items. I always get 2 California Rolls, but you can get other kinds of sushi, tempura, endamame, etc. Do you know how much all this costs??? $8.88. Uh, YEAH. Sign me UP. If you live in my town, check out Hiro downtown for lunch. Maybe I'll see ya there!
I just saw this documentary the other day and loved it. LOVED. Check it out. It kind of confirms a lot of my beliefs about modern art. Mainly that it's all a bunch of malarkey. But also, that anything is possible. And now I really want to know who Banksy is.
Yeah, I know this isn't little. But I am STUPID excited about it. How in God's green earth did I live without an iPad before????? Now I can't imagine life without it.
Speaking of my iPad, my newest obsession on it is the app for Boggle. Yes. My husband bought me a super expensive electronic toy that can do incredible things....and I mainly use it to play Boggle. Love me!
And that's it for this month, folks! Hope you enjoyed the March edition of LTTMMSE!
