I *heart* Ethel

My, oh my. Went to meet a friend after work yesterday. Typically we'd meet for drinks but yesterday I had a different plan. There's a new ethel's open near my work....
$36 later I came out with Intelligensia coffee, amazing chocolates and toffee. I think good toffee is as important as good sex. It's THAT important. And a $4 chocolate covered strawberry for the hubs. PB&J chocolates for Belly. Golden Boy isn't so much into chocolates, so he had the peanut butter cups.
To. Die. For.
The story is that in the early 1900's, Ethel Mars and her husband started making chocolate candies in their home. They eventually sold out to a large company - remember Mars Bars?! - and a smaller operation with specialty candies was started up by their son. If you haven't been to ethel's, find the closest one and go NOW! And if you spend $30, you get a free chocolatey gift. Does it get any better??

(Oh yes, and it was great seeing my friend again, too!)

Sooo today is Friday the 13th. That new M Night Sham.. Shamla....Shama-lama-ding-dong movie is coming out, with Mark Wahlberg. I'm so there.

Wow, I'm such a shameless consumer today. Would you like to know about my outfit, too?? Dress $5, Goodwill. Sweater $5, Goodwill. Bag $12, Chinese Laundry. Shoes $110, BCBG. Priorities - I have 'em!

I have never hear of Ethel's and there is probably no chance I will find one around where I live but I think I will have to look into it. Sounds fantastic.

I did a tour of the Ethel M factory in Vegas. It was a lot of fun. We don't have 1 near us.
