So I have a confession to make — I think I may be addicted to almond butter.
Yes, I know, I know. This is not a real addiction.
But, I really do think I am addicted to it. To be fair, so is Birdie. We can’t get enough of it — we eat it morning, noon, and night, and many moments in between. I currently have four jars of the stuff in my cabinet, all opened, all with varying degrees of almond butter left. Birdie even recognizes the sound of when I open a jar — we have jars of other foods and she knows the difference — and she’ll come running and sit at my feet patiently while I dig it out and eat it right off the spoon, and then I’ll let her lick what’s left. There’s never much left. Wilson finds errant spoons in various spots around the house (and the car), licked clean of all their contents. Birdie is an excellent dishwasher.
But it’s not just almond butter I’m addicted to. Indeed, I’ve come to realize I’m a creature of habit, gravitating towards the possessions I love most in life and ignoring all else. Below is a little compilation of some of my most favorite things — some I’ve written about before, but they still are my faves. This is the tried and true shiz.
By the way, if I could hyperlink an option to buy a Wilson and a Birdie, I’d do it for you. They are just that good. My real favorites.
Pajamas. I am writing this post in these pajamas, and they are pretty amazing. Soft, lightweight, luxurious — you feel like you’re fancy. You is kind, you is smaht, you is fancy.
Sunglasses. I bought a pair of these sunglasses while in Hawaii and love them. I have the tortoise shell color, but I love this light brown color too. Like a good cappuccino. Don’t worry Wilson I did not buy them.
Nespresso. Holy shit I could yap all day about my Nespresso machine. It’s one of the best things that has ever happened to me, up there with meeting Wilson, moving to Savannah and birthing Birdie. This one makes coffee and espresso — so fetch — and includes a separate frother, which I would open-mouth kiss every morning if Wilson wouldn’t judge me. Frother, you’re everything to me.
Shoes. I’ve written about these driving moccasins before, but I finally got a pair for Christmas this past year (thank you Mom and Dad) and I’m obsessed with them. They are very well made and so comfortable. I love them. Buy them.
Eyeliner. As previously mentioned I’m not the savviest makeup artist on the block, but I try. This eyeliner by Tarte has two ends — one normal eyeliner crayon end and the other is a faux magic marker with a pointed tip to create the perfect cat eye. Since I don’t normally go out with a traditional cat eye — but maybe I should, me-yowww — I use the crayon end daily, but if you’re in to options this eyeliner is the one for you.
Candle. This candle smells delish. I’m not sure it smells like Savannah because sometimes Savannah smells like the bottom of an old sneaker, but it’s great anyway. .
Face lotion. This face cream is awesome. I got it as a sample and am about to buy some more — it’s super lightweight and smells nice.
THE BEST ALMOND BUTTER/DRUG OF ALL TIME. Vanilla and espresso-flavored almond butter. It’s bananas. Just buy it. You will thank me later. It would be great with bananas too.
Can I get an amen for Friday?
