Kitchen: Anthro Style

Dining Room Measuring Spoons- $24

Holy Monday, I'm back! I haven't blogged in 4 WHOLE DAYS. That is a long time for this web nerd, lemme tell ya. I was still feeling puny on Friday from the Great Stomach Bug of 2010, so I spent the day nursing my blue Gatorade on the couch and watching riveting shows like MTV True Life: I'm a Mixed Martial Arts Fighter.

Daytime TV is awful, by the way.

But guess what, I'm sick no mo'.

So anywho, this weekend was awesome/amazing/wonderful/perfect. The weather was downright chilly and it finally felt like fall outside. And for some reason, when fall comes around, I get the urge to cook.

I spent nearly the entire day yesterday preparing food/baking food/cooking food and loved every greasy, cheesy, sugary moment of it.

With all of these culinary thoughts on the brain, I took a little cruise on the internet this morning to scope out some of Anthropologie's oh-so-chic cookware. I bookmarked some of these a few weeks ago and was going to share with y'all, but boots and skirts and leggings just sounded like better blog material at the time. Fashion trumps everything, per usual : )

My favorite have to be these...the Ladies in Waiting plates. How very royal.

I also have a weird soft spot for cutesy spoons. Love both of these sets, especially the shell-looking measuring ones. They make me want to whip up a hearty chowder and go digging for clams on the beach at my weekend home in Maryland...if only I did things like chowder-making and clam-digging....or had a weekend home in Maryland. Yeah.

These were pretty presh, too. Looks like someone spilled some ink around the edges or something. Guess that's why they called it the "Inkwell" collection.

So I have a birthday coming up on December 3 and if any of ya'll would like to purchase and send me any of the above, that'd be swell. Thanks a million, dolls.

Ok, real quick, gotta brag on my guy a sec. My sweet boyfriend sent me a dozen red beauties last Thursday at work and frankly, I melted (please ignore the Starbucks cup in the photo...oops.) I thought it was because I was sick last week, but no. He had planned to send them before I was sick. Just. Because.

Lucky girl, I am.

Alright ladies and gents, I'm off to kick Monday's rear, MMA fighter style. Y'all come back tomorrow and we'll talk some more.

Be blessed, lovelies-
