Splurge and Savings

I have two favorite items. One has been a favorite for a while, and one I just discovered recently.

The one that's been around for a while is not cheap. It's a splurge item that I still insist on getting because it makes me eat my salad.

Oh mylanta, this is stuff is delicious. So far I've only been able to find it at AJs Market (I believe they only exist here in Arizona) and it's $6.00 a bottle. But seriously folks, it's the BEST. DRESSING. EVER.

I made a salad last night that consisted of spinach and strawberries and candied nuts. I poured a little of this dressing in a bowl and added poppy seeds and about a teaspoon of dried onions. It was simply marvy. Seriously. Oh. So. GOOD!

Like I said, it's a splurge, but one you won't regret and will find you'll need always. And again, it gets me to eat my veggies.


Now, talk about random, but the one that's a new discovery is a cheap alternative to pedicures. (Okay, so what's wrong with doing a single blog post about salad dressing and pedicures?)

I am going to San Francisco later this week and am in dire and desperate need of a pedicure (seriously GROSS FEET!). I didn't want to spend the money on one, but was considering it because though logically you would think, "Just give yourself one," physically I'm a pedicure moron. I won't explain, just know I have problems (if you know me, that's a given anyway - HA!).

I then remembered my cousin then my sister and eventually my roommate talking about this little contraption - The PedEgg. I purchased one on Saturday for $9.99 (the cheapest pedicure is $25) and proceeded to make my feet look and feel like a baby's bottom. Oh. So. Wonderful.

It really worked? The PedEgg? I totally mocked the commercials. They are hilarious. They made it look like a human cheese grater. I'm glad it worked for you though.

Yup. Yup.

AND that pic of the salad dressing is kind of cool. Nice perspective. Your little phone camera takes a pretty nice shot.

I agree on both accounts. They are both wonderful.

Yes, the PedEgg is great! I bought one and I use it too.

You are welcome to join us at our house when we do pedicure parties. We love our at home pedicures! They're great. We have all the stuff for flowers and french nails and stuff.

Have fun in San Fran. Did you ever get the Ghirardelli's menu? I gave it to him. I can't wait to hear all about it.
