No seriously.  I should be eating cookies at this very moment.  I feel brainwashed by cookie brainwashers.  And, I’m okay with it.

Botanical BakeryThe stars of my cookie fantasies are these fancy lil’ shortbreads from the Botanical Bakery.  I received a package of these babies in my Hammockpack a couple of months ago and as of this very moment, I can’t get them out of my mind. They were insane delish.  So much so, that if the president of all cookies in the land came to my house right now, I’d probably sell my soul to him (or her).  I’m gross.

Anyway – we tasted the Lemon Thyme, but I’m 99% sure all of the flavors are awesome. Described as “Brazen Chunks of Indulgence with a Butter Soul” these sweet treats are made from organic and all natural ingredients.  They “carefully select the most aromatic organic or wild-crafted herbs and spices using the actual leaves, roots, stems, seeds, blossoms or pollen not flavorings or oils”.  

Super fancy…and, super-duper worth it.  Here’s the flavors I plan on inhaling…I mean sampling, in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

Chocolate ChipotleBotanical Bakery Chocolate Chipotle Shorties (3.5 oz)

Two of my favorite flavors smooshed together in the form of a cookie.  Seems to be a match made in heaven.

Find yours:  here for $6.50

Botanical Bakery Thai ChiliNew!  Thai Chili Shorties (3.5 oz)

Oh sweet Thai Chili shortbread dreamies.  Will you be mine?  Will you?

Find yours:  here for $6.50

Botanical Bakery Brown Butter SageBrown Butter Sage Shorties (3.5 oz)

I shouldn’t even have to say it, but I will.  Thanksgiving (in your mouth).

Find yours:  here for $6.50

I’m fat.  Well, not really but I should be based upon the dirty cookie thoughts I’m having.  I’m adding these to my rewards list (treats I give myself for being healthy & fit).  Oh, and P.S.  They also have Cheese Snaps, but that’s a whole other blog post. Can’t wait to indulge.  Stalk away!  Toota-loota-loo!

Happy first day back to work after having 4 glorious days off!

I’m sorry.  That’s insensitive.  If it makes you feel any better, I have two new friends taking residence on my ass after all of the vacation desserting – I call them pound 1 and pound 2.  They’re stupid and so is the end of vacation.  The only thing NOT stupid about this ploopy day are these awesome dishes.  I mean…it doesn’t get much better than cute lil’ animals shouting naughty words from your dessert plate.

Besides Dying Turtle PlateI’ll be honest.  It’s unclear to me what inspired this fancy china (designed by My Only Regret (besides dying)) – All I know is that it reminds me of my youth – you know, when you’re about 7 years old and think you are the awesomest for saying the word “poop” in the library above whisper level.  And, that my friends…makes me happy. Here’s a couple of my faves.  Feel free to stalk your heart out and offend your house guests!


Savanna Style Dirty Dishes (set of 4 mugs) – These lil’ African creatures are just cussing away about lady & man parts (click on the gallery below to see the R rated version).  Find em’:  here (for $43 bucks).  

Savanna Style Dirty Dishes

Dirty Dishes G rated Beer Steins (set of 4) – See what I’m saying?  I don’t think there will ever be a time in my life when the word “wiener” doesn’t make me break into hysterical fits of laughter.  Find em’:  here (for $54 bucks).Dirty Dishes Rated G Beer Steins

Dinosaur Dirty Dishes Coaster Set of 4:  These dinosaurs are super in trouble for saying these words. That said, these could be pretty cool floating around the bar in your dudes man cave.  Find em’:  here (for $23 bucks)

Dinosaurs Coasters

Ok, I feel dirty now.  Must shower.

Love these.

CUE’ & REFRESH {Some Kick-Ass Bespoke Post Box Reveals}

[ 0 ] July 3, 2013 |

shesays littleYee-haw!  It’s another post co-written by my man.

Here’s the husby’s take on his April Bespoke Post delivery – Cue‘. This box was most-def a win for both of us, P.S.  I also included the pics from the May Refresh Box (below).  It came just in time for some work travel.

If you wanna hook yourself (or your fave man-dude) up with this box, visit the Men’s Subscription Boxes section of the Insanely Huge Directory of Subscription Boxes. Otherwise, feast your eyes on these babies (in the words of da’ man):

hesaysIf Bespoke was a chick, it would totally be winning me over. First some slick duds to class up my dress attire from the Threaded box.

And now a treasure trove of barbequing delight. Ohh Bespoke… its like you’ve known me for years… wait. Have you been watching me this whole time? Creepy.

This next installment from Bespoke pulls together a bunch of grilling stuff that will make you a Chopped Champion or an Iron Chef …well it’ll definitely maybe make your burgers better at least.

Here’s what came in the box:

Bespoke Post Cue

Get your plank on! No true bbq master should be without a set of these Hickory, Cedar & Alder Grill Planks via Outdoor Gourmet. I already had a set, except, I was rushing one day and didn’t soak them thoroughly – so yeah, I had a set. Good news is the wifey mandates we have fire extinguishers everywhere.

DSC_0494Bespoke also pulled together a generous set of gourmet bbq spice rubs (Chipotle & Honey Rub, Moroccan Harissa Rub & Chimichurri Seasoning via Whole Spice), a jar of Summer Southern Honey (via TruBee Honey), and a whole grinders-worth of Wynad Single-Estate Peppercorn from India (via Salt Traders). Personally, I think all a good steak needs is some salt, pepper, olive oil and a great sear, but im looking forward to trying the assorted dry rubs.




A glob of Sir Kensington’s Gourmet Classic Scooping ketchup or Tin’s Whole Grain Artisan Mustard pair perfectly with some nicely charred dogs or brats. But never together. Ketchup AND mustard? That’s just gross.


DSC_0498And if that wasn’t enough, a couple bags of Food Should Taste Good Jalapeno and Blue Corn chips to stoke your hunger while you slow smoke that rack of luscious ribs.


Barbeque Awesomeness.  Next on the list?  The Refresh box – filled with all the stuff a dude needs to stay stylin’ while out on the open road:

Bespoke Refresh

This box included a ton of stuff.  Click on any of the links below to scope em’ out for yourself.  Click on the gallery pics to get a closer look…

DOPP KIT via Blue Claw Co. / Double Hitter 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner + Reformer Matte Finish Texturizer via MITCH by Paul Mitchell/ Handmade Gold Moss Soap via Sasquatch Soap Co. / Face Wash via Cremo Company / Lotion + Body Powder via Gold Bond / Mint Toothpaste via Marvis / Drinker’s Multivitamin via Drinkwel

See why this box is so awesome?  Yeah, we do too.  Hook yourself up here ($45 bucks / month including shipping).
