My sweet friend Sheaffer reminded me yesterday at lunch that I was indebted to her for all of her wonderful advice. She said she was “batting 1.000” with me. It sounds kind of cocky but I have to admit…it is so true. Lately, Sheaffer has been on a roll with wonderful advice on things to purchase and places to eat. Since today is Miss Sheaffer’s birthday, I thought I’d honor her with her four best recommendations. Ironically, two have to do with hair and two have to do with food.
A TIGI devotee for years, Sheaffer recommended that I start using Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner on my hair. Let me tell you…LIFE CHANGING. I love it. LOVE IT!
insisted recommended I buy a new Chi Hair dryer. (What I really mean is that she drove to my house, told me to buy one that very day, insisted I call her when I bought it, then insisted I call her after I used it to tell her how smart she was for recommending it to me.) Let me just tell you, I bought it, I used it, I called her and thanked her for sharing such a wonderful secret with me. Who knew the King of flat irons could make such a fantastic hair dryer. The best part is that it has cut my drying time in half. It’s not a cheap dryer but well worth the investment (and right now at Ulta, they’re on sale).
Now, Sheaffer didn’t introduce me to Nothing Bundt Cakes (I’ve been visiting them for years) but she did turn me on to ordering the petite little bundlets for a nice afternoon treat. If you haven’t tried one before, I highly recommend the lemon. So yummy! Andrew’s favorite is the red velvet bundtlet and Sheaffer’s is the cinnamon swirl. Honestly, you can’t go wrong.
And finally, one day Sheaffer called me insisting that she had just eaten the best piece of coconut cream pie EVER. She went on and on and on about it. She said we were going the next day so I could try some too. I mean, I love coconut cream pie but the best? I was doubtful. And I was wrong. Spoons diner in downtown McKinney makes the absolute BEST coconut cream pie EVER. EVER! I love it. Sheaffer was soooo right.
Needless to say, if you see pictures of me in the future with amazing hair and an extra 20 pounds, I have my good friend Sheaffer to thank.
Happy Birthday girl! What would I do without your wisdom?
