But....it's no fun to celebrate alone.
Will you join me in celebrating? I mean, really join me. Like go out and pick your favorite food or drink and have it all ready in the fridge or cupboard for September 7th, when you'll crack it open with me?
I really hope you will. Seriously, even if you don't plan on buying or reading my book, if you'd take the time to celebrate this huge moment in my life with me, it would really mean a lot. (Okay, that was totally not meant to sound all "woe is me" - I do have family and friends who will celebrate with me in person...but I just consider my online community my friends too, and I want you to be part of the celebration!)
So as I said, I'm starting my shopping list, and I hope you can help me add to it. I still have a couple of weeks to shop. Tell me in the comments what YOU plan to have on September 7th, and if it sounds especially appetizing to me too, maybe I'll add it to my list. Or if you want to choose a few things from MY list, it'll be almost like we're celebrating together. Okay, not quite, but still...
Celebratory Food List:
1. The Drink: Barefoot Moscato white wine
2. Coconut M&M's (Thanks Tami K. and Jenn H. for the tip on these! Apparently you can buy these at Walgreen's, in a white package, but I haven't been able to find any ANYWHERE. If anyone can help scout for these, and let me know where you find them, I'd really appreciate it!)
3. Feta stuffed jalapeno peppers
4. Milsean demmerra butter crunch (a local specialty, you can probably only get if you're from the Vancouver area).
5. Lindt 70% cocoa bar
Okay, what else? I'm thinking of some Kettle Chips, but still deciding on a flavor.
I need some more of your your favorite tasty treat ideas. And let me know what you will be indulging in for the celebration!
