Miscellany Monday

I am linking up over at lowercase letters for Miscellany Monday.

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{1} Spending Money

Last Thursday I posted some weekly goals for myself in regards to saving/spending...let's just say it has only been 4 days...and I am not doing as well as I had hoped.  I spent almost $90.00 at Target today...which included lunch at Chick-fil-a before...and I bought a Groupon on my IPhone while waiting for Madison to finish her cooking class.  I could give a long list of explanations...such as the Groupon was only $10...and I needed toilet paper...let's just say I need to regroup and try way harder.

{2} Panera

I love Panera...and today while at Target I noticed they now carry Panera salad dressings in their grocery section.  I cannot wait to try some of them.  Yum!!

{3} A Great Movie

This weekend I started watching a movie on cable. It was called Mother and Child and it starred Annette Benning, Naomi Watts, and Kerry Washington. I stayed up until almost 2 am watching it. It was excellent.  The movie was about adoption and the links each of these three women had to it - one through giving up a baby up for adoption, one through having been adopted, and the third woman wanting to adopt.If you have seen it, I'd love to hear your thoughts, if not, I recommend you watch it.

{4} Baking

I have been baking my a** off lately.  This weekend I made whiter chocolate peanut butter fluff bars, almond cupcakes, Heath cupcakes, coconut cupcakes, and chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes.  They cupcakes were mainly for a tasting appointment I have this Thursday.  I am doing wedding cupcakes for a friend's July I am going to offer her several choices.  This week I need to work on chocolate cake and carrot cake samples.
