Forget QVC, It's All About Etsy!

As said in my last blog post, the Boyfriend and I haven't been gallivanting as much as we used to and that pretty much includes places like the mall for two reasons:

1) I'm not much of an actual window shopper. I don't like walking from store to store seeing all the things I can't buy. I like going when I know I need to get something and am guaranteed to walk out with it.

2) Whether or not I actually need something, I always feel compelled to buy something. Like, really compelled. (See: "$30 for Sloppy Joe sauce?? That's ridiculous!.....It must taste really good...maybe we should buy it...")

So lately I've taken to perusing Etsy. I'll admit, I started stalking the site because Jenny the Bloggess and Kandee the Make-Up Artist posted links to two amazing stores.

And I've come to the realization that I can't even be trusted inside virtual malls! I've already made 3 separate impulse buys! I don't regret the purchases because, in all honesty, they're pretty rad but wow...
I can't even try that thing in the movie where you hide your credit card (in my case, my debit card) inside a block of ice in the freezer.
Because shopping online means all you need to know is the password to your PayPal account *sigh*

Come be apart of my addictions! Here's the stuff I've bought lately: (And the links where to get them!)

Donuts + Chickens = Yum?

So my lack of blogging is attributed to the fact that my car decided to stop working on me.
It overheated 8 hours into a 10 hour drive to Fallon, where we were trying to attend a funeral for the Boyfriend's Great-Grandpa.

When we got back home, we were told the pistons on the engine were damaged and a head gasket was blown. In short, we were S.O.L.

So I had to go to the dealership and finance a car. Sure that sounds easy but I had my previous car since I was 16...and my mommy and daddy got it for me. I will say this, the guys who work at the dealerships are like ninjas! We pulled in and there were 2 guys standing outside. We took our eyes off them for 1 minute to park and suddenly there were 6 of them!

So since I now have a monthly car payment again, I haven't been able to buy stuff or go out as often.
In other words, my life is too boring to blog about.

But I did go to the L.A. County Fair on Sunday! Boyfriend won me a Keroppi doll and I won a Domo-Kun <3
We mostly spent our money on food though. We had Pink's Famous Chili Dogs (they have an actual store that people line up outside to eat at in Hollywood), Dr. Bob's Ice Cream, Chocolate-Covered Bacon, and finally...Krispy Kreme Chicken Sandwiches.

Just roll me into the morgue now, I'm surprised I didn't have a mini-stroke!
Also, all those calories lost from foam-sword fights are back, ten-fold *sigh*

If you're wondering if the Boyfriend and I liked them, the answer is "Yes"
