Treat Yourself Tuesday: Some Fun Stuff

Hello and happy Tuesday! I’m feeling pretty fantastic about this week as it rolls along. I’m headed back to Pittsburgh tomorrow for a quickie business trip. Sad panda. It feels like I just got home from last week! Wait, I did. But duty calls.

Anyway, it’s time to check in with Becky at Olives ‘n’ Wine for another round of Treat Yourself Tuesday! Thank you once again to Becky for hosting this week’s linkup, and encouraging all of us crazy kids to take time and give ourselves a treat (or several) each week!


  • I bought some summer sandals! Since I’ve discovered that I have wide feet and actually need my shoes to accommodate ALL of my toes, summer sandal shopping was becoming my least favorite activity. Either the shoes were super cute but too narrow, or they fit but made me look like I was 80 years old. Not sexy. But I picked these Jessica Simpson sandals up at DSW last weekend. I enjoyed them on the roof Sunday while supervising Squish on his scooter bike. Super cute and comfy!


  • Squish and I had a mommy-son date Saturday and stopped at Cako Creamery at the Metreon for an ice cream treat for two very good shoppers. We split a single scoop of the strawberry cheesecake (well, Squish, I, and Squish’s chin/shirt split it), but mysteriously there is no photographic evidence 😉
  • Since I can’t drink, I’ve been looking for creative beverages so I don’t get completely sick of water/sparkling water all the time. I picked up some of these Sanpellegrino sparkling lemon Italian soda thingys at the Italian deli next door, and they are the perfect replacement to the sunny afternoon cocktail on the roof. Yeah they have a bit of sugar in them, but I figure if I was drinking a beer I’d still be consuming carbs anyway. And these are so tart, that I only really want to drink one, as opposed to several beers. They are the perfect sunny afternoon refreshment!


That’s it for now, time to scrub up, pack up, and get the work thing done!

How has your Tuesday been treating you?
