Sweet Lizzie's

Sometimes living in a small town is stifling, but when you're a candy addict and a place like Sweet Lizzie's opens (36 N Main #1), well now, a different story entirely.
1st trip.......lemon drops......pomegranate jelly bellys......coconut jelly bellys.......sour grapefruit......salt water taffy(for PBTB).....jelly nougats(for PBTB, his fav and I haven't been able to find them for about 3 years!).........sweet black licorice chews(for mom)........fireballs(for mom)......gummy snake, centipede, dinos, and alligators(for "W).......coconut long boy(for "W").
Oh and I picked up a whirly pop and french chew taffy for V-Day.

My special request, as I was leaving......order some seafoam and you'll be set.

Yes, I'll be back soon.

Magnetic Alphabet Puzzle

I used to carry O.R. E. at my store. I love this puzzle that they've introduced. "W" has these type of puzzles at his pre-school and I think they're great. Never missing pieces.

Sand Shapers; Willyspheres

The Duchess left this in my inbox this morning. But, more importantly used in the snow. Yes, very cool.

Boys' Room

Decorating is part of me. I don't profess to be an expert, but living almost a year in someone else's home, is, in a sense, crushing my soul. Don't get me wrong, I am EXTREMELY grateful to have a roof over my head. But, today is gloomy, and I'm thinking about things to come and I should really stop before I start hyperventilating. I have a vision for the boys' room that could definitely incorporate a few things from this post.

Culinary Circle Bucatini

I've had a long time complaint. I've never been able to find thick noodles at your standard grocery store. I discovered Culinary Circle's Bucatini the other day at Albertson's. Tried it tonight.......oh yeah, this is going on my staple list.

Sub Zero Ice Cream

My friend Esther blogged about this place yesterday.
Dear Duchess,

Now that Utah has an ice cream joint, subway style. You choose your own base cream (that includes soy, sista). You can go ahead and start packing up your things. That is, if the Duke hasn't signed his life away yet.

Love, Princess P

Gnocchi @ Sostanza

If I ever see Gnocchi on a menu, I order it. It's my favorite "out to eat" meal. Sostanza's gnocchi is on my top 3 list of best I've ever eaten. And whaddya know, right here in Tooele

I thought that all that was left of Fendall's was a vintage sign on 700 East, but apparently they're still in operation. When I was in high school. I though it was so cool to go to Fendall's for ice cream. If you ate a certain size of ice cream, you got an entire block on the wall to decorate with a black sharpie (and probably a belly ache to go along with it).

I enjoyed church meetings yesterday to the scent of Smencils. Gourmet scented pencils wrapped in 100% recycled newspapers. My 4 and 8 year old niece and nephew were thoroughly entertained.

Schleich for Potty Training

No matter how good or how many other toys I introduce "W" to, he still cannot get enough of his Schleich. So, we're taking advantage and using them as a bribe for potty training. Wish us luck. His current favorites......all of african descent.

There's a sophistication that I love about Boden. They have a lot of items that I would love to have, mainly out of my budget. It seems as if the swimsuits are priced a bit more realistically for me. I'm loving their kids suits too, a little pricey, but adorable (luv it when the boys' styles are equally as cute as the girls). I think this suit is a must-have for myself.

Tickle Monster Laughter Kit [With Tickle Mitts]

If someone were to tell me years ago that our child would not be ticklish. I would have insisted he was an imposter. Of course that was before I knew they would both have blue eyes. I had to have this book anyhow and he thinks it's a lot of fun, even if he's just acting the part when we tickle him.

Vibram Five Fingers

If you need some motivation to get exercising, look no further. Barefoot sports are all the rage. My sis got some for Christmas and I think I need some.

Everyone needs an Alice. This website is awesome. You can select all the products that you are loyal to and keep them in your account. Alice will remind you before you run out of anything. But the best part, ALWAYS FREE SHIPPING. I am a fanatic about free shipping and this site made my week.

Raku Pottery

My sister collects Raku pottery. It's made with horsehair and apparently the firing can be dangerous. I think I would like a piece when our house is complete. I don't consider myself a collector of anything. (Although I do have some collections, does that make sense?) I don't love all Raku. I think it takes some searching to find something exquisite. But, when you find it, that it is.
