    Turkish (Antep) pistachios, Ultimate Malted Milk Balls, a pound of Jelly Belly assorted jelly beans, and the Bitty Bar Sampler. 😁 "Inside, you’ll find three bars of each flavor; Sweet and Salty, Cranberry Quinoa, Trail Mix and Peanut Butter and Jelly. Small as they are, these itsy bitsy bars pack a ton of flavor. Made with clean, simple ingredients like peanuts, almonds, dried apricots, quinoa and more. Bound together with sweet, pure honey! Plus, they’re travel-sized and do just the trick when you need a quick pick-me-up."

    What a freaking waste of electricity, heating an outdoor pool in Pennsylvania in April! 😑

    I had them on auto-delivery and they arrived at the beginning of the week. I'm eating one and watching the Yankees as I type this.😊 Also got an order in from Nuts.com this week, so I am rolling in goodies!

    House Flipping Shows

    /rant on/ I've just watched several episodes of RBTF, and was coming here to post the exact same thoughts. And thanks for mentioning Diane Keaton - that is precisely who Leanne seems to be modeling her behavior on. She's just too, too cute for my taste. πŸ˜’ She seems to default to white and black as her main color schemes in every house she's done, that I've seen. I think her design style is bland and pedestrian; I like a variety of decorating styles so it's not that I dislike minimalist or modern/moderne or whatever. There is just no warmth to her finished products, no "I'd really love to live there vibe" to me. I watched two shows in a row where she painted the entire outsides of two houses black; on one she did the trim and door all in black, too. Instead of giving it architectural interest, she turned it into an uninteresting black hole. I really hated what she did with that Victorian, the one where the wife loves doilies and fringe. That new kitchen and the redone rooms were sooo sterile after she was done with them. I bet that woman cried after the camera crew left. And that white chaise for the kids to draw on - WTH? Yes, like parents want to teach their kids to draw on furniture, and who is going to chance sitting on it and getting color stains on their clothes? Thanks for the chance to rant. I realize that everyone's mileage may vary. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š /rant off/

    Carolyn seems to be a stubborn person, IMO, so I don't know that it's all discomfort about her weight. She believes herself to be a certain size, and by God, that's the size she's going to put on! We can tell by the way she preens at the monitor that she doesn't see the same things we do. She's got a lot of Norma Desmond on her character, I think. I've got a gut and a butt, so I'm not going to throw any stones at her (or at anyone) for having the same. What I will throw stones at is the sizing of the clothes that she wears on air. When I put on a button-down blouse, and I can't button the bottom two buttons, I know that the blouse doesn't fit me - and I'm not going outside my home in it. If I can find and wear Q-sourced clothes that fit without the seams screaming, so can she. Her willful denial about her true size is what makes her snarkable to me.

    Actually, I do. My weight doesn't affect my degree of happiness. 😊 Don't buy into the assumption that obesity always signals unhappiness. I am what I am, and my weight is what it is. I do the things necessary to keep me happy and healthy, but genetics really start coming into play as you age. You'll eventually see. πŸ˜‰

    I usually get Trader Joe's frozen potstickers. I put a soaking wet paper towel on a microwave-safe plate, place the potstickers on top of it, and then layer another wet paper towel on top of them. I then heat them up in the microwave and it's just like steaming them.

    Up at my size range, I've only seen the colors white and nude offered. Perhaps that's why they weren't included; maybe all those sizes over the QVC cutoff point aren't made in other colors. Yes, two in the same color was good. That way the customer can get exactly what they want.

    I didn't get it. I've maxed out on kitchen appliances. Today's Bali TSV is the bra I prefer. However, the TSV isn't being offered in my size, so no purchase for me. Besides which, I picked up two on sale at Amazon for a total of $31.98 (with free Prime shipping) last month.😁

    A #aformerhost is running an 8-day cruise for her followers/customers to the western Caribbean, which will be departing at the end of this month. Perhaps that's the person the Moseleys are referring to? Google is your friend, if anyone wants more info.

    I finally remembered the third thing I wanted to post. 😊 The Q finally has some new Travelon handbags in their inventory. For a while there I thought that they were phasing it out because nothing new was added and they kept hard-selling Lug bags, which share the same sales niche.

    Spring breaks are starting. With all the "busy moms" at the Q, maybe he just covered his bases early, especially if it's something like a wedding or tickets to go see "Hamilton" .

    But -only- if you are in the size range that they carry. That's why for some of us, the Q's generous sizing is a godsend, even if the prices are too high. I, for one, can't get stuff at Old Navy, Marshall's, TJM, etc., that probably the majority of you can.πŸ˜•

    I wear their clothes...but then, I don't go to malls if I can help it. πŸ˜‰ They are a level of Hell to me (not to mention that few stores there carry clothing that is in my size). I prefer to get in and out of stores quickly. 😊

    I cannot stand when adult women do that pigeon-toed stance. It is just too, too twee.

    I had three things that I wanted to post as an FYI here, but at the moment I can only remember two of them (sigh): Earth has a new sandal on the Q styled a little differently from the one I recently bought and liked. It reminds me more of the Teva sandal style: Earth Origins Suede Sport Sandals- Higgins Halton If any one else is like me, and likes the Carole Hochman Wood Block Floral Rayon Spandex Sleepshirt Set, the colors are all back in stock with an additional two new ones - azalea and navy.

    I saw that earlier bowl of his, and it took willpower to resist buying it. This current one is lovely, too. That's something that I definitely would have bought back when I was working. On all my trips or vists to juried crafts fairs, I would try to buy a piece of pottery if one struck my fancy. Of course, I've now got a tower of artisan-crafted pottery stacked in a kitchen cabinet, lol.
