SOME OF YOU INQUIRED ABOUT THE RECIPES I USED FOR MY CHRISTMAS GOODIES. I WILL NOT BE POSTING THOSE ONLINE, BECAUSE THEN ALL MY FRIENDS WILL HAVE THE RECIPE AND THAT MEANS I CAN NO LONGER MAKE MY TREATS FOR THEM. HOWEVER, IF YOU WANT THE RECIPE AND YOU DONT KNOW ME PERSONALLY EMAIL ME AT WILDDREEMER AT YAHOO DOT COM AND I WILL GIVE YOU WHICHEVER RECIPE YOU WANT!
I was just over reading Laineys blog (the little stinker got to open her presents early) and she was talking about diamonds. I was reminded of the day we picked out my wedding band. The jewelry guy looked at my husband when I said I didn't want anything big, and said something about how I say that now but after he marries me I'll be all ooooo I want a bigger ring, and ear rings and a bracelet. I tried to explain to the guy that no, in fact I would never want a bigger ring, or a bracelet or what not. I actually have diamond ear rings from my mom. Know what I do with them? I let my jewelery box wear them. I also have a diamond necklace from Rob. It goes on jewelry box camping trips with my ear rings. Then once or twice a year on fancy occasions (read, when I wear my black dress) I put on the ear rings and the necklace. This guy didn't believe me. He kept telling Rob that all women say that before they are married, then they get the guy to marry them and suddenly want to be all iced out and shit. I had to laugh because while diamonds are great for some people (seriously Katie looks stunning with some diamonds on...but, I mean, Katie does her hair every day and stuff so she totally should wear diamonds as a reward for that task) but for me diamonds are about as exciting as wearing dirt. I love my wedding and engagement ring and thats it. All together the cost of the other jewelry I wear on a daily basis is $5.25.
However, don't let this fool you into thinking I don't have expensive taste. I just like different things. You see, if it was fashionable to walk around dangling shiny new Wusthof Santuko knives from my ears, well shit, you wouldn't be able to pry me out of that jewelery store. Yup thats right. Kitchen shit! Thats my diamond. The way some women get over a diamond, well thats how I get over a new Lew Crueset pot, or an Al Clad sauce pan, or heaven forbid a new Wusthof. In fact I don't think I could ever have enough knives. You could buy me one every week and it wouldn't be enough. I would never tire. In fact all this talk about kitchen stuff is making me feel a little frisky if you know what I mean. I think its funny that while that jewelry store guy was totally wrong about diamonds he was right about the fact that all of us have that one thing, the one thing that makes the world light up and makes your husband suddenly shit roses and fireworks crack in the sky. For me it's knives. What is it for you? Whats the one thing that if you saw under the tree this year, you would, well lets just say you wouldn't mind if the next thing you opened was a pair of knee pads?
