This huge box came for me the other day. It was unnecessarily large, though - it contained these beauties:
Ah, my beloved Le Creuset bakeware. A couple pieces closer to my dream of having a kitchen full of their gorgeous pieces.
The thing is, I definitely had buyer's remorse. Even though it was a great deal and I had free shipping, I felt really guilty about buying them.
But then, something amazing happened. Rue La La emailed me saying that the dimensions they had listed in the description were much larger than the dimensions of the actual dishes (which I had noticed and was disappointed about) and because of that, they were refunding all purchasers IN FULL. What?! So I got those dishes for free! It was definitely my lucky day.
Part of the reason I had buyer's remorse was because I also bought something else that arrived the same day as my new dishes.
This one was actually a necessity, though.
Not quite as fun as my Le Creuset package, but I had been meaning to get a fire extinguisher since I moved into my apartment almost 2 years ago. It only took seeing the building across from my apartment catch on fire recently to spur me to finally get one.
Usual happenings over here today - gym (cardio), studying, review session, more studying. I did start out with an exceptionally good breakfast this morning.
I heated up some baked oatmeal with some almond milk, and then added fresh strawberries. So, so good. The oatmeal is good on its own, but it was really delicious with milk and berries.
I think I could eat fruit all day long. Last night I had an amazing bowl of strawberries and kiwis - so summery! The warmer temperatures can come anytime now.
Tonight I'm going to take the time to make a real dinner! Finally. Enjoy the start of your weekend!
Song of the day:
"Sea of Love" by Cat Power. It took me awhile to get into Cat Power, but this is one of my go-to quiet songs now. (I've got soft, quiet songs on my mind due to all of the studying lately.)
