I fell into the peony trap

Guys. Seriously. Why have I not known about peonies until recently?

As I’m sure you know, there are peonies ALL over Pinterest. And blogs. And Instagram. So, of course, my Treat Yourself Tuesday this week includes some peonies.

Treat-Yourself-Tuesday-Badge (1)I have been looking for some peonies for AGES and couldn’t find them anywhere until someone on Twitter mentioned she got hers at Whole Foods. I ran over there to find some and, while they were GORGEOUS, there was no way I was going to pay $16 for flowers just for myself to look at occasionally. Trader Joes to the rescue! Finallllllly found some pretty ones for $6.99. Trader Joes: You’re awesome.

Also lit my new candle that my sister bought me. Yum….. I’m currently trying to stop myself from buying more candles during the semi-annual sale. Nope. Jessie, NO.

We’ll see how long that lasts.

Next up, I bought myself a small Cookie Dough Iced Coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts after Ashley mentioned it on Instagram. SO GOOD.

Lastly was a funny shirt I picked up in Chicago after the Backstreet Boys concert (!!!!!! I’m going to do a whole post on that night – best night of my life HANDS DOWN). If you haven’t figured out already based on some of my photos throughout the blog, I love love love shirts with funny sayings on them or quotes. Or funny quotes. Whatevs. 🙂

      Ha! It’s an awesome shirt. I love funny shirts like that. I got it in Chicago so you can go snag one for yourself. 🙂

      Yeah, it was SO good! I actually don’t really like coffee (I know, shocker), but this was awesome. Try it if you ever find a DD! And I’ll hopefully have my BSB post up soon! 🙂

    I have peonies by the garden-they weren’t open of course when you were here – would you like dad to bring you some white ones?
