Hello! Thanks for your patience today; in the continuing saga of How Can My Life Be Unnecessarily Complicated and/or Annoying, my web hosting experienced an eensy problem this morning. And by “eensy problem” I of course mean that the site was offline for hours. Sigh.
Anyway! Before we leap into the Amazon Friday Sale, thereâ€™s a very special Restaurant.com deal you need to know about: Today only—in honor of it being 08-08-08, I think—use coupon code FIRST to take 80% off your certificate purchase! That’s $25 of dining for just $2, and if you know of a better deal than that (short of getting someone else to pick up the bill), Iâ€™d love to hear about it.
And now… on to the Friday Sale.
Oh my, these shoes fill my heart with joy, even though I suspect the brand name of “ohâ€¦DEER!” is because that’s what I’d say after I fell off those tippy high heels. (Don’t forget that sale shoes are another 20% off in your cart, too!)
I have no idea if this bug zapper actually works (though it has tons of favorable reviews, so it probably does), I just really love the idea of basically sitting around on the porch and slapping at bugs with a badminton racket. (Oh! And! It’s eligible for the 4-for-3 promotion, so I can get one for everyone in the family. Heh.)
When did people stop wearing aprons? I’m a messy cook; I still wear the apron I got waitressing at a diner in college. But maybe I’ll pick up one of these.
Scoooooooooooooba!!! (No, I will never get tired of saying that. Thanks for asking, though.)
Several of my friends used these upside-down tomato planters this year, and I was skeptical, I’ll admit. But… they’re kind of cool. And between the sale and the 4-for-3, I may have to try them for next year.
If you’ve been thinking of switching over to Calphalon, this set would be a great way to start. It’s not only marked down to under $150, but there are several bonus offers available if you decide to pick up additional pieces, as well. Here’s a great Cuisinart cookware set that’s even cheaper, if you’d rather.
And if you need a hand mixer, consider the Braun MultiMix, which is a hand mixer and stick blender all in one. Love! (That’s a great wedding gift, by the way—looks a lot more expensive than the current $24.99 price tag.)
I am officially in love with this bread box. It’s the perfect gift for your favorite mod friend. Also in the “so adorable but sort of weird” category: this egg cooker, and—the topper, really—this knife set.
Again, sorry for the delay, and I hope y’all have a good Friday!
