Tuesday Things.

1. I’ve spent the majority of the day with my right hand draped in a bowl of cold milk. I was going to wax my eyebrows this morning (I’ve done it myself since I was 18) annnnd accidentally dumped a container of boiling wax (it got too hot) all over my hand. Let’s just say between the hours of 7:30Am and 11:00AM I wanted to lose my mind.

 

2. After my hand finally stopped throbbing, I made a giant pot of chicken noodle soup and was far too impatient to wait to taste test… so I burnt every possible taste bud off of my tongue. I’m just a walking blister today.

 

3. I think the theme of these incidents is that I really need to learn some patience. You think?

 

4. Has anyone else been obsessed with Ulta’s 21 days of beauty? They have had incredible beauty steals everyday this month which is fantastic for my makeup collection and terrible for my bank account. But the prices are just so cheeeeap!

 

5. This is my friend’s baby who makes the best faces ever. He is only 4 months old and I spent most of Sunday smothering his cheeks.

Also: note the rolls.

 

6. I’m headed to California for a blog-related conference tomorrow and I’m almost positive my suitcase is overweight. Yeahhhh buddy.

 

7. After our huge dinner on Friday night, this was our breakfast on Saturday.

Someone help me.

 

8. I admit this Tuesday Things was pretty boring today, but how about you try typing with only your left fingertips? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

    Sorry to hear about your burn(s). I didn’t know milk helped stop a throbbing burn? Learned something new on a Tuesday.

    An Ulta just opened down the street from where I live. I had never heard of it before but I am being converted from a Sephora shopper for sure.

    • Jessica — September 20th, 2011 @ 7:14 pm

      I was a Sephora addict long before Ulta came here, but I love Ulta because they have the high, mid and low end brands. Plus all the other beauty products!

    When I was in culinary school, a friend of mine pulled a piping hot pan out of an oven without even realizing what the eff she was doing, and pretty much seared her hand off her arm. That might be a slight exaggeration, but it was baaad. Burns are not fun. I’m feeling sorry for you right now. Just keep looking at the picture of that baby’s incredible face (so adorable), and switch from hot foods to ice cream for a little while. ;)

    I am very sorry for ur right hand ;( and ur taste buds!! It happend to me with hot wax all over my right leg and on the rest of the container on the carpet, the worst part was trying to clean the carpet by hand! On the other note: the baby and the breakfast look good! I am choosing the donut! I just had a pina colada frozen yogurt with chocolate chips and mochi sooon good for a 5pm snack :)

    I burned my hand last night on caramel! I had to fall asleep with my hand in a bowl of water because the pain was so excruciating that I couldn’t fall asleep without the water. And the worst part? I didn’t get to enjoy the dessert that the caramel was for!

    When I used to live in Chicago, I lived about 1 mile from an Ulta and was addicted to that store. Good thing for my wallet I moved :)

    And your hand…I am SO SORRY!!!!!! I dumped a scalding cup of hot coffee on my hand about 4 weeks ago and lost the skin on my thumb area…nasty, I won’t describe it, but I hope your hand is okay.

    Burns throb and hurt and are awful. Seriously, I feel for you!!!!! ((( HUGS))))

      And speaking of eyebrows… just today I was thinking about doing mine because the bridge of my nose is currently living under a rapidly growing forest, but I didn’t feel like enduring the pain of ripping a trillion reluctant hairs out of my face. I wonder if they make some kind of eyebrow numbing cream. I will have to investigate.

        1.My husbands birthday was this past friday (23rd) and from PA and dearly wants a bag of BBQ Middlesworth potato chips

        2.I could go for some Tasteycakes (chocolate please)

        3.I live an hour away from Sonoma and would have loved to take you to my favorite winerys and of course stop at Dean & Deluca!

    I hope you feel better soon. On the subject of Chili, If I made this for 25 people can I just double the ground beef since its cheaper and use the same amount of pork and chuck beef?
    Also, you mentioned we could do in the crock pot but what do I do about the browing? If I brown and dump in crock pot I will lose the fat renderings which is where the flavor is. Any ideas?

    Oh wow! First, I hope you feel better soon. Second, being in Sonoma will do it. Start at Harvest Moon Winery and work your way up Olivet to Hook and Ladder Winery. We were there 3 weeks ago for our Anniv…..bought waaaaay too much wine (wait, can you ever have too much wine?). Everywhere we ate the food was amazing…from little diners in Occidental to the Applewood Inn….FABULOUS! Let me know if they let you out of the conference at all…..I can give you some suggestions (Bistro 29 in Santa Rosa – great French Bistro).
    Third…hope your hand is better….man, that must have been righteous pain.
    Fourth…that baby is absolutely Edible! Thanks for making my week with his pic!
