Somehow (amazingly) this is my 300th post! I think I'll celebrate it tonight by watching 300, eating my finalized single serving brownie recipe then painting my toenails a vixeny red color.

On the subject of brownies, I had many failed attempts at healthier versions this morning. I tried to use some of these:
and found out that I really don't like the texture of black beans in my brownies. I'll leave them to the savory applications. After my early morning attempts, I realized I needed to pop out to the grocery store to pick up a couple things for this evening's set of attempts. There's a Marshalls right next to the grocery store and I couldn't help myself.  I found a really cute outfit!

Please disregard the fact that I had to stand on the toilet in our spare bathroom (the one that I've obviously decorated) and get this snap. We don't actually have a hanging full length mirror anywhere in our place that I could use. Marshalls didn't have any shoes I liked but I came home and checked out DSW online.  I'm thinking I want one of these three:
I'm leaning towards the first shoe because I think it has a cute but weird (gee, that doesn't sound like me at all! *shifty eyes*) appeal to it. That and while I really like the third shoe, I hate wearing heels that aren't boots.  Which one of the three is your favorite? Leave me a note in the comments below! :)

After I got finished with the groceries and Marshalls, I decided to stop at Target on the way home. I ran out of Airborne this morning (Eric's sick, do not want sick cooties) so I picked more up. I also (finally!) bought that broom I have been talking about for weeks. I spent a good hour sweeping off the deck:
There were so many leaves. It was really messy.  I guess the gutters don't have any leaves left in them anymore at least...

I also got our (my) spare bathroom some rugs:
Now it's time for me to get back to my laboratory (oops, I mean kitchen!) and create a delicious but healthier brownie! Stay tuned for the recipe and accompanying pictures tomorrow. :)

How has your Saturday been so far?
