more domestic diva-ness

okay, this ebates thing is pretty cool. i got an email this morning that said i'd already built up my rebates to $25, based on my cyber monday shopping spree! who knew shopping online at target, gap, and sephora would actually pay off? at least, that's how i plan to spin it for the hub, after the magical holiday shopping is over. heh.

and last night's dinner was another smashing success. i brined the pork chops in the buttermilk/herb concoction in my recipe all day long (you're supposed to do it overnight, but i fell asleep the night before without getting it done), and between cooking those, some quickie noodle side dish, and steaming some broccoli, i had dinner on the table in 20 minutes. effing sweet. again, i couldn't take my own picture, but trust me...i'm scoring major points these days. ;)

my friend A and i were trading e-mails in the late afternoon, while i continued my online shopping and she killed time waiting for her hub to pick her up for the laker game. i managed to find some things i want to use as gifts for the hub's team/staff members, while A sent me several links to fun stuff she was eyeing for her list for santa. and it got me thinking about my own santa list - i can't think of much aside from some tall chocolate brown uggs (shut up, i heart uggs), tickets to see "wicked", a red le creuset dutch oven, a hot chocolate pot from williams-sonoma, and this:

a nikon d40 camera. i get so annoyed when i manage to snap off great shots and they're blurry, or not as fabulous as i'd like for them to be. and this camera has great reviews! i doubt it'll happen, though. i can hear "we already HAVE two digital cameras" in my head as i type this.

good lord, what a boring ass santa list. hot damn, i HAVE turned into a housewife.
