A Day of Treats and Treasures

Saturday, September 25, 2010

I sort of (but not really) regret the "treats" part of yesterday because I think I'm paying for it today.  I have been sick with a cold the last two days and I completely ignored that and thought with my stomach and sweet tooth instead.  I woke up today with an adolescent boy voice and I'm still blowing my nose.  It was a good day though so no complaints!

The Wafels and Dinges truck was parked by my job yesterday because they were teaming up with Eddie's Pizza Truck, who's regularly by my job every Friday.  Wafels and Dinges is never in the same area I am in so this was a huge surprise and of course I had to go get some waffles.  

I ended up getting the Throwdown, which is what they made for their challenge on Throwdown With Bobby Flay - and won!  It is a Liege waffle topped off with their special spekuloos spread (made from Belgian gingerbread cookies) and whipped cream.  I added bananas to it as a free extra.  It was indeed crazy but came together really well and I think if you're going to have something from the Wafels and Dinges truck, just one topping won't cut it.  That spekuloos spread is a nice change from the standard Nutella and peanut butter. 

I left work early and rushed downtown to the Fenton/Fallon sample sale.  It was the last day of the sale so I didn't expect to see a huge selection leftover.  When I got there, there were maybe 3 hours left of the sale and there were still some good pieces left!  Especially if you wear earrings.  I don't at the moment so I checked out the other goods.  For the last leg of the sale, everything was an additional 50% off the sale price, making most items $25 and under.  How amazing is that? 

Sadly all of the bangle bracelets were way too huge for me (and most normal hand/wrist sizes it seemed) so I looked closely at the cuffs.  I picked up a pair of identical cuff bracelets in two different metal finishes.  They both offer a different look on my arm depending on my outfit and other jewelry worn with it.  I couldn't choose one over the other so I got both for $35 all together.  I only get two items of the same style if I really truly love the design and see myself wearing it a lot.  I also couldn't argue with the price.

I love the look of this bracelet.  It's chunky and is a mix of girly and edgy, which is always what I gravitate towards.  The touch of pyramid studs sealed the deal for me. 

Later I went to Momofuku Milk Bar with my friend Jon and his friend Melissa.  Along with a Chocolate Friar Fancy Milkshake (made of chocolate ice cream + vodka), I got some Birthday Cake truffles to take home.  They don't sell slices of cake here, so you either have to get a whole cake or the truffles which come 3 to a pack.  I haven't tried any other cake but the Birthday Cake and it's already a favorite I keep coming back to.  The truffles look really gross and I call them Unicorn Poop, but trust me they are t-t-t-tasty tastay.
