Today’s Recipe and Location: Jalapeno Cheddar Scones
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

These scones surprised me. I couldn’t imagine these flavors together in a type of bread/cookie but they truly worked. To me, they weren’t really spicy, but every once in awhile there was a little heat. So far I have loved every single scone recipe that Ree has put out there in cyberspace. This one is a keeper!
Special Event: Shopping for winter clothes
Okay, so I knew that eventually I would have to go shopping for winter clothes since I only had one or two things that even slightly fit.
So, after really hearing the heartfelt comments from Jenny Anderson, I resigned myself to the fact that I was going to have to shop. Jenny laughed when I told her that I was waiting for the winter clothes to be out. Apparently, they have been out for some time – HOW WOULD I KNOW????? I don’t go near a store unless it is a grocery store for my blog. She really helped me by giving me a lot of ideas of where to shop.
I planned the big trip for this past Saturday morning at 9:45 a.m. I wanted to arrive at the outlet mall early to get a good parking space and be in and out as quick as is humanly possible. Of course, it was cold and rainy, which fit my shopping mood perfectly.
I bought a few things at Lane Bryant and many at Dress Barn. My total for the day was $383.26. After shopping for two entire hours, I was ready to try on some boots and flee to the parking lot. I didn’t find any boots that I loved, so I left. I was literally exhausted for the remainder of the day, but I really love what I bought.
Okay, JA – I really, really, really, hate to admit it, but I am glad I went to the mall and thrilled with my new clothes.
|This is a floor length gray skirt and a t-shirt that I bought at |
Lane. It looks boring on the hangers.
|The black fancy t-shirt is great, but I nixed the |
black and white skirt so now I just have the top.
I am sure eventually I will find something
to wear it with someday.
|JA - I know you told me to look for color, |
but I fell in love with a lot of gray and black.
What a surprise?
|A few more new dresses.|
There is a wonderful burgundy dress that I couldn't get to photograph well - you'll have to wait to see it live.
I thank God that I won’t have to go back to the mall until the spring. Yikes! That is only a few months away.
