For What It's Worth

the friday 5



1.

My birthday finally rolled around this week and not a moment too soon. I used it as an excuse to buy a ton of things I don’t need. lol  Every time I saw something on sale my brain said….it’s on sale! AND my birthday = meant to be. Sound logic right?

I'm cut off now 😭

My husband took the day off and we headed to Orlando for these beauties from Gideon’s Bakehouse.

How ridiculous are these cookies??!! They’re almost 1/2 pound each. I discovered this place last year but so hasn’t everyone else – so they’ve been starting to sell out every day. My favorite is the pistachio toffee dark chocolate but I’ve been wanting the to try the candied walnut chocolate chip since forever. They only have it on Wednesday’s but luckily the stars aligned and I finally got one! Totally worth the wait.

I arrived home to this package from my friend Brooke. I always know when a box is from her because she covers it in fun things – either stickers, drawings or things like this…and of course there was a party on the inside as promised. I also got gifted Autoboyography from another friend and I may have squealed REALLY loud because I wanted that book SO bad.

Non- birthday related…this judgey bunny was outside my front door yesterday. He seemed totally pissed that I was interrupting his morning munchies. Look at that glare lol

Kevin also surprised me and came home early from work yesterday – announcing that we were going to go see A Quiet Place. He’s been working every single day for almost 2 weeks so we haven’t been able to go out at all.

download (9)It was really good! Not quite as scary tense as I was expecting – a lot more of them just going about their daily lives but that was interesting on it’s own. Because you see how hard it would be to keep quiet and still live a normal life for YEARS. Like…how do you keep a 4 year old from acting out? Or a teen from temper tantrum-ing. You can’t.

Two things though….where the hell did they get like 500 red lightbulbs and hang them all up without making any noise? And while at the pharmacy, maybe pick up some condoms/birth control? Having a crying baby isn’t the best plan during these times lol But props to Emily Blunt’s character who can give birth silently. I’d probably cry louder from getting a splinter removed.






How did your week go? Any plans for this weekend? I think I’m going to try watching the new Sandra Oh series – Killing Eve – that everyone is raving about. And I (hopefully) will have a post up Monday about my TBR reading progress. I’m killing it and  I AM EXCITED.

    I can't believe your friend gets away with writing crazy stuff on your packages LOL. Doesn't your mail service freak out? πŸ˜‚

    I already said happy birthday on Twitter, so, well...I hope things stay as nice as they have been for the longest time!

    1. You can write anything on there as long as the address is clear (and obviously nothing bad). I use stickers a lot when I send the nieces/nephews.

  17. I love the stuff you got, especially that shirt. And those cookies look delicious! I'm glad you had a good birthday.

    The bunnies at the last place I lived were really creepy. They had some scary glares too. I would come home from work late at night and they would all watch me from the darkness. It made me really uncomfortable lol

  18. Happy B-day, Karen! Definitely a good excuse to buy too much. That is a very cute bunny even though it does look a little judgey, lol. I want to see A Quiet Place, but I don't think it's possible for kids to be quiet. I just got back home from being with my grandkids and it's impossible for my 2 1/2 yr old grandson to be silent for 2 seconds together let alone all the time, lol! He's very cute though. :)

    1. Yeah - they couldn't lol And to have them understand and be that way for YEARS is kind of impossible.

      My bunny was out front again this morning - glaring as usual - but pulling up my weeds for me so we'll have to learn to get along. lol

  23. Happy belated birthday, Karen! It sounds like it was a great one. And honestly, everyone should treat themselves to a few "from me" gifts on their bday...especially if they're on sale. ;)

    LOL re: The Quiet Place birth control and labour comments.
