pretty tupperware

I admit it.  I get silly amounts of happy over some goofy stuff.

For example, my tupperware pleases me to no end.  But it’s not just any tupperware, it’s Portionware!

The Portionware containers are marked with the exact volume of each vessel, so that you can control your portion sizes!  How very mindful, no?

what boys like

I don’t do Black Friday.  Too wild and woolly for me.  But I have spent an inordinate amount of time in the past two days scouring gift guides, catalogs and websites in an online shopping fiesta.
