"Becky's life is blooming! She's working at London's newest big store, The Look, house-hunting with husband Luke (her secret wish is a Shoe Room)...and she's pregnant! She couldn't be more overjoyed - especially since discovering that shopping cures morning sickness. Everything has got to be perfect for her baby: from the designer nursery...to the latest, coolest pram...to the celebrity, must-have obstetrician. But when the celebrity obstetrician turns out to be Luke's glamorous, intellectual ex-girlfriend, Becky's perfect world starts to crumble. She's shopping for two...but are there three in her marriage?" - taken from the back cover of Shopaholic & Baby.I absolutely love the author Sophie Kinsella and the Shopaholic series. I have been reading these books for years and after the first one, Confessions of a Shopaholic, they do tend to be repetitive and pretty predictable, but they are still very fun books to read. In Shopaholic & Baby Rebecca Bloomwood Brandon is back and just as adorable as ever. She is the shopaholic that we have grown to love and this time she is having a baby! All the familiar characters return, Suze - the best friend, Luke - her handsome, charming husband, mum and dad, sister Jess, Tom and Janice. Becky's adventures are endless, starting with her first sonogram and ending with a delightful, laugh out loud delivery. The struggles Becky faces are just as endless and range from a sexy obstetrician that is one of Luke's ex-girlfriends who is trying to steal him away, saving a business that is about to go under, finding the perfect house and most importantly, FINDING THE PERFECT PRAM! So grab a cup of tea and head out on this new adventure with your favorite shopper. You won't be disappointed!

Yesterday school was out to celebrate Columbus Day and so E spent half the day at work with dad and half a day with me. Like most every Kindergartner he loves to cut, color and paste. After every worksheet he completed he would cut out the pictures. This one in particular he stapled to a post-it and tacked to my board. As he describes it, "the tooth is chasing the boy and girl and they are running away to watch the boy shoot the basketball."
Now, who needs fancy artwork of Yellowstone hanging on the wall when you can have this? To me this is priceless stuff!

Anyway, this has nothing to do with Wendy's, fries or a delicious chocolate Frosty, but it has everything to do with that crunchy, salty/sweet combination of Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack. Yum! I have been wanting to try this for sometime and finally found it in stock at the grocery this weekend. It is as good as I imagined. The fudge covered potato chips mixed in ice cream, genius! Now I get the whole french fry/Frosty craze!
So, the big question now is...which Ben & Jerry's flavor to try next? Suggestions?
