My First Marvelous Monday

Happy Marvelous Monday to you all! This is my first MM post, so here are the things that are rocking my Monday.

1. My “Fifty Shades of Grey” article being published yesterday. It’s part of a column I’m writing called “Gatherings,” which centers around entertaining. We actually read “50 Shades” for our work book club, so I created a fun, aphrodisiac menu to go with the book. Check out the article here.

2. Lululemon’s Run: Shorty Shorts are my new favorite running shorts. I picked them up a few weeks ago in Milwaukee’s Third Ward on the clearance rack for $44! Mine are all black. What I love about these shorts is that they don’t ride up, there are tons of pockets and those grippy things on the side are actually functional – they keep your top from riding up.


3. Avery first introduced me to Tweezerman’s Ingrown Hair Splintertweeze. I’ve been tweezing since I was 12, so I appreciate a good pair of tweezers. Simply put, these will be your new favorite pair. You can grab shorter hairs easily. Just don’t stab yourself. These babies are sharp!


4. Duff Goldman’s cake ice cream flavors from the Blue Bunny. I’ve tried the Red Velvet Cake; I Do, I Do Wedding Cake; and the 24 Karat Carrot Cake. Our local Kopp’s Custard carries a Red Velvet Custard that’s amazing. Unfortunately, you can only get it when it’s the flavor of the day. Now I can have cake ice cream whenever I want.


Other than that, I’m really looking forward to having the 4th off. We are watching a local band and then heading to a friend’s house for a BBQ. I’m thinking about brining these Oreo Rice Krispie Treats – there’s easy, not too messy and kids (and adults) love them.

What is making your Monday marvelous?
