Salty N Sweet

24 May

The series finale of Lost was one beautiful episode. I absolutely loved the flash sideways and how everyone started to remember the island and the connections and relationships they made on it. I stayed up until 2A reading message boards and Lost blogs because I am a dork like that and for the most part it seems like everyone was happy with the ending however some feel like it didn’t finalize everything and saying that the creators lied when saying the island wasn’t purgatory (which it wasn’t, the flash sideways was). All in all, I am going to miss Lost. It was the only show I ever watched that delved deep into the characters, their development and both their past and futures. I can honestly say I will be shocked if another show comes along that has made the impact Lost has made on me.

I had a Supercharge Me cookie this morning since I caught the late bus into work. I also had a Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino Bottle since I wasn’t lazy and didn’t feel like making coffee. This was way too sweet for me and I used to drink these a lot. Add another item to the list of things I am just not diggin anymore. Looks like Operation Watch My Sugar Intake is working because all these sweets are just now too sweet for me and I’m not enjoying it like I used to. I think I have been doing decent with watching my sugar intake (ok except for the occasional ice cream serving) but looking at my sugar this month, a majority of it seems to be from fruit which yeah, it’s a lot of sugar but in my mind, it could be worse by eating something processed with tons more sugar.

I had a bowl of oats around 10A with Trader Joe’s Very Cherry Blend and Trader Joe’s Blueberry Flax—fruity delicious warm goodness (also one of my ex boyfriends nicknames—JK!)

I  was dragging this morning. I had two cups of Starbucks at work and pretty much a walking zombie going though the motions most of the day. Thank God for good eye makeup because I would have just looked horrid without it! I caught up with my co-workers with Lost and we just talked and talked about that so that made my day go a little better. I was busy but nothing out of control so I got to

A) Drink lots of water because I had time to go to the bathroom. Sad huh?
B) Take a 10 minute break in the morning
C) Take a lunch break and catch up on Lost Blogs

Life is good :)

I had a turkey and Pepperjack cheese sandwich with Dijon, tomato and lettuce on whole wheat with cucumbers and Athenos Roasted Red Pepper Hummus for lunch.

I finally tried Better Balance Lemon Herb Protein Chips, which have been sitting in my snack drawer at work. I wasn’t anxious to try these because some of these protein snacks can be quite tasteless and just blah.

Surprisingly enough, they were fabulous. I had half a bag and would love to try more. They have other fun flavors like Crispy Parmesan and Chili Nacho Cheese and will need to try those soon! Now to jump on the Vita Top bandwagon!

I tried something different for dinner: Pita Puff Coated Catfish Bites

I threw in Trader Joe’s Pita Puffs in the food processor

I cut up an 8 oz catfish fillet into bites, dipped in eggwash and tossed in ground up Pita Puffs with barbeque seasoning.

Then fried in 1/5 tbsp of vegetable oil

Drizzled with wing sauce and served with half a sweet potato

The verdict: I really liked the alternative of this as a coating for meat as opposed to bread crumbs, panko, etc. but I forgot that it was the Sea Salt Pita Puffs so it was a tad on the salty side (note to self, get the unsalted kind next time!)

I had a good Kettlebell/ Weight workout tonight including:

10 lb dumbbell

  • Shoulder Press (2 sets, 13 reps)
  • Lateral Raises (2 sets, 12 reps)
  • Front Raises (2 sets, 13 reps)
  • Curls (2 sets, 13 reps)

20 lb. Kettlebell

  • Halos (4 sets, 12 reps)
  • Upright Row (3 sets, 13 reps)
  • Squats (4 sets, 12 reps)
  • Swings (3 sets, 12 reps)
  • Shrugs (2 sets, 13 reps)

Mixed with that, I did a lot of jumping, booty shaking and kicking.

Random workout but I felt amazing afterwards. I let Lincoln out of his holding cell (AKA my bedroom) and we went for a 15 minute walk then came back and had my post workout snack: Baked Apple with Cinnamon and Peanut Butter

And spent. I am exhausted and ready to catch up on blogs and crash!

Lost :(

23 May

I can’t believe Lost is over for good tonight. Since there is stuff on from 7P to Midnight, I had to take a two-hour nap this afternoon so I could stay awake—no way I am missing this! 

A pretty boring wknd all in all. Payday isn’t until Friday so I am kinda waiting on that since I paid more than I normally do on my credit card. I hate having all this time to do stuff but no money–sucks. 

I started yesterday with eggs in a hole with yellow apple slices on the side. 

 

 

I was pretty bored plus it was overcast out so I decided to go into work to catch up from being off on Friday and of course, get some OT pay :)  Anywho, I knocked out all of my emails from Friday plus a bunch of stuff I needed to review. I even applied for some other jobs and it felt good to be caught up. I will definitely be catching the late bus tomorrow since I won’t be going to bed until 1A or so. Ay Chihuahua. 

Yes, that would be Lincoln napping in my arms like a baby.

But happy times were soon near—the hippies were out! I didn’t have a lot of cash on me so only got a few things. 

 

I had a late lunch –I brought a California Pizza Kitchen Personal Size Margherita Pizza. 

 

 

I got home and pretty much just lounged around the rest of the night. 

I was reading The Auspicious Squirrel and saw that she made Pasta Primavera a few wks ago and  been wanting to make it (or a variation) ever since. I usually make tacos or asian stir fry with all my fresh veggies but never really thought to do it Italian style. 

I made mine with Farfalle Pasta, Chicken, Homemade Pesto, Zucchini, Tomato, Mushrooms, Onions topped with a dallop of Greek Yogurt and Feta Cheese. 

 

 

 

 

FANTASTIC! I loved this and was nice to have a cold pasta for a change. 

 I fell asleep at 9P because I’m lame then woke up, cleaned the kitchen, did laundry and watched some tv. I had dessert of Skinny Cow Chocolate Fudge Brownie single portion 

 

 

This morning, I was gearing up to go on a walk and possibly a run and made a waffle and egg breakfast sandwich using Nature’s Path Original Flax Plus Waffles. 

 

 

 

I went for a two-mile walk  which was frustrating. Both my knee and ankle were killing me so I had to stop after that but wanted to do more. I tried running a little but my body did not want to roll with that. Why is my body acting against me now? For years, I was lazy, ate horribly and just a mess and now I want to be active, be healthier, etc. and I keep having this issues. Annoying to say the least. 

I went to the pool for two hours and caught up with some friends there and by the time I got back in, I was starving! I made black bean quesadillas topped with avocado for lunch. 

 

 

I saw that Naomi made these SuperCharge Me Cookies the other day and noticed I had the ingredient list in my kitchen and have been itching to make them! I used whole wheat flour and didn’t have any coconut on me but threw in some extra raisins in there instead. It took less than five minutes to mix and made 12 big cookies. 

 

 

 Try this cookie recipe now! It was awesome, moist  and flavorful. I put in a few extra dashes of cinnamon and really enjoyed the flavor of that along with the vanilla, raisins and chocolate.  My shadow was by my side also waiting for a taste 

 

After that I took my nap, I grabbed a Diet Mountain Dew so I could jolt my system to wake up for Lost. 

 

Dinner time was nearing and I had one of my favorite meals for a night of one of my favorite shows. I made Trader Joe’s Mandarin Orange Chicken with bok choy, mushrooms, onions and snap peas. 

 

 

And that’s it. I am absolutely loving this Lost Flashback of all the moments in Lost history. I cannot wait to see what happens tonight!!

Sushi and Jen Lancaster

22 May

Thanks everyone for your opinion on the dress situation. I think I am going to wear the purple dress to the wedding but keep the pink and black one around for fun! I woke up at 8A because I scheduled a pick up for Salvation Army today since I have a ton of stuff to donate such as a dining room table, clothes, end table, tv, and more. This was the third time I’ve tried to plan something and was hoping that it would be the charm. They couldn’t give me a time of when they were going to be here and just said from 12 to 4P. They later called me telling me te guy who was supposed to be on my route threw out his back. Not happy. I am just trying to donate some stuff. Edit, a bunch of stuff so they can sell and make money for their organization but apparently they are to unorganizde to schedule something for me so I will be going to another organization. ARRRGH!

Since I was up , I made some coffee and an egg, cheese and tomato sandwich on whole wheat

I watched some of the Today show which I don’t prefer but was too lazy to get up and change to Good Morning America. Sam Champion is just fabulous and makes the show a happy viewing for me.

It was nasty out—humid and overcast. I was planning on getting some pool action is so that was out of the question and just felt blah so went back to bed for two hours. When I woke up, I was still feeling off. I should have been happy to be off work but the whole Salvation Army disorganization got me off to a bad start. Plus not being able to go to the pool and no one to call up to do anything didn’t help either. I like a little organization and a plan if you can’t tell.

I was craving greasy take out Chinese food but kept telling myself “NYC NYC NYC” since I am going in July and really didn’t need it. I ended up going to Harris Teeter to get some sushi. When walking in, there was a Boars Head tent with four older gentleman all in red vests sitting there. When I walked by, they all started playing this old-time music and it reminded me of the Seinfeld episode when Elaine goes to the Dixieland Deli to pick up tickets she won on the radio. I just wanted to get my sushi, get in and get out but there was a Boar’s Head/ Harris Teeter validation party going on so people, music, free samples everywhere. Which, I would normally be up for but wasn’t digging it. I picked up a Spicy Tuna Roll and AvocadoVegetable Roll.

Fresh and delicious-two thumbs up!

After that, I watched Arrested Development Season 3 on Netflix. I am trying to not watch too many in one sitting since that’s the least season and am absolutely in love with the show but it is not more :( I did a 20 minute kettlebell session then got ready to go out and get my mani/pedi on. I had a Groupon for Polished, an awesome nail bar here in Charlotte. I paid $30 for a $60 All Out Mani/Pedi including paraffin wax and sugar scrub (I got pomegranate). I love Polished, the atmosphere is very modern yet intimate. They have a variety of gossip magazines (love since I refuse to spend $4 on them) and serve wine and beer. Any place where I can get my nails did and have Yuengling is A-OK in my book.

Then I was on my way to what I’ve been waiting for all week—Jen Lancaster at Barnes and Noble. As many of you know, she is my absolute favorite author. I’ve been reading her stuff since Bitter is The New Black came out and frequent her blog-Jennsylvania. I met her once before in Chicago a year and a half ago when my friends were in town for a wedding and she happened to be out doing a reading there.

 Sigh, miss my highlights.

Now, from Polished, it was 10 miles to where the Barnes and Noble she was going to be at was. So you would think on a Friday afternoon it would maybe take 30 mins? Oh no. Hour and a half bitches! And I had to pee. And it was raining. And it’s Race Week here in Charlotte (Nascar, fun, yay). I thought I was going to murder someone by the time I got there. We are in Charlotte, NC not Chicago, Boston or LA. Driving time like that is not acceptable in my book and why I don’t drive many place. I met up with one of my co-workers and got a Caramel Macchatio from the Starbucks in Barnes and Noble. Yum. I haven’t had one of those in four years and it was fabulous. We listened to her reading from an excerpt from her newest book, My Fair Lazy, and she was fabulous, witty and entertaining as always. She had a Q&A session afterwards then signing time was up next. We waited for an hour and a half. The ladies in front of us brought her gifts and suddenly felt like I was being one upped by these strangers. When I got up to her, did I say something witty or someone intelligent to my favorite author? Oh no. I believe the exact words were “Um, yeah, I feel like an effin jackass that I didn’t bring you a gift but I have a Werther’s Original if you want?” She laughed and chatted for a few while she signed my copy of Bitter is the New Black and signed a copy of My Fair Lazy for one of my sorority sisters who was supposed to see her in DC the other night but didn’t make it.

Way too smiley in that picture but I was happy (and hopped up on Starbucks!)

My friend and I were starving and ended up for another sushi-riffic meal at Eez Fusion & Sushi, I’ve heard great things about Eez but am never really up in that part of town so I was excited to try it! We each got a beer and ordered some sushi. They literally had two pages full of sushi selections (I am talking Cheesecake Factory length menus).

I got Mark’s Roll-Fresh tuna, jalapeno, cream cheese, kani and scallion roll, coated with panko and flash fried. Topped with Japanese cream sauce and sriracha. Served with ponzu dipping sauce.

And the TNT Roll-Spicy tuna, kani, avocado and fish roe

Both were absolutely terrific and this may be a new favorite place of mine. I really liked the atmosphere, it was dark with Japanese inspired art and lighting fixtures and had great upbeat music playing.  Plus they have have late night half priced sushi at 11P so I will need to hit this place up again when I live closer to there. Yay for new sushi places!

Two Dresses

20 May

What a day! I think I am on some kind of high from being off tomorrow so I have been running around non stop!

I mentioned last night how Lincoln was being a bad baby…barking his balls off (ironically he doesn’t have the boys anymore), not listening to me, etc. Well his behavior did a complete 180 and he was finally my sweet baby that I am used to.

I said I wasn’t going to have ice cream but I lied and cracked open a single portion of Skinny Cow Dulce De Leche-only 150 calories, we like that.

Holy crap-this was amazing. It was decadent with lots of caramel and perfect for my sweet tooth that always wants a lil something something. It’s Lincoln approved as well!

I went to bed at a decent hour and slept in until 630A so I could catch the late bus, which ended up working out because the bus I normally take never even showed up. Which the ride up was a crowded one since we had the amount of two busses of people in one. Side note, I really hate when people sit in the aisle seat so no one sits in the window and they can have the row to themselves. They are always the first ones I go to when I want to sit b/c I? Am obnoxious like that.

I had a Kashi Go Lean Crunch!, Strawberry and Yoplait Greek Yogurt Parfait for breakfast

The Yoplait Greek Yogurt is growing on me. I really like that it’s not too sweet nor sour and 12g of protein. My coffee buddy who I usually go to Starbucks with finally got back from his two wk trip in Hawaii and we have been meaning to catch up. We finally got to today and it was wonderful. He has a snarky sense of humor and has as much frustration with our work as I do. It was great to catch him up on all things—how I’m overloaded, Stinkalicious, Hawaii (which I asked him if he saw any Lost tours but had no clue) and such.

This morning was busy but nothing out of control. I got to take a 20 minute lunch break (woo hoo!) to stroll over to the library and get some cd’s and books for the wknd. I brought lunch—Farfalle Pesto Chicken Pasta with sautéed mushrooms, onions and zucchini.

I need to make more pesto-ASAP.

This afternoon was pretty much making sure everything was in order for tomorrow. Word got around at some banks that I will be out of the office for ONE day and everyone was freaking out. That made me feel good. I hate that I work my butt off and am efficient but the other people on my team don’t roll that way. What can I say, I’m competitive and want to be the best. I took a 20 minute break with one of my co-workers and we walked one mile, which was great to get out and get some fresh air.

 

I had no clue what to have for dinner so just threw some random stuff together. I broke into my Morningstar Grilllers Prime. I love Morningstar products but never tried this kind before so I was exciting!

I had half of a sweet potato and half pita with my Trader Joe’s Edamame Hummus that I love so.

Told you it was a random meal. I slathered some BBQ sauce on the patties and for the most part liked them. I liked the texture since it wasn’t rubber like and the taste was decent. I don’t know if I am crazy about it like their black bean patties but a good quick fix.

After that, I was on a mission…..and kinda wishing someone could cure my lonely condition. I am going to a wedding with a girlfriend of mine the first weekend of June (Hello Irish-Italian wedding with open bar!) and need a dress. I went to Ross which I love because it’s so cheap yet has in fashion stuff. I found not one but TWO dresses for the wedding.

The contenders

Dress One–I absolutely love the pink and black color combo

Dress Two-love purple because it is the color of royalty and just felt classy in this dress.

I couldn’t decide so I got both (two dresses for $34?? Yes please)

But now the important question: Dress One or Two??

Please let me know what you think, be honest (and keep in mind I didn’t have my gut sucking undies on :) lol)

I stopped at the Dollar Tree afterwards to pick up some random stuff then off to the big event of the night-Harris Teeter. Right now, they have Double Coupons up to $1.98, which is a super happy time for me being the frugalista I am!

I got all of this:

*Mission Tortillas

*Real Simple Magazine

*Wholly Guacamole

*Two Cans of Mighty Dog food

*Beggin Strips

*Pedigree Good Bites

*Vanilla Frappaccino Four Pack

*Athenos Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

*Dove deodorant

*McCormick’s Cinnamon and Red Pepper Flakes

*Excedrin Migraine

*California Pizza Kitchen Personal Size Pizza

For $21!!!! I love my coupons so much :)

And Lincoln got a new baby to play with, he only has 38 babies so he needs some more. He was a bit excited!

The high is still going  and I’m just excited I don’t have to get up early. If I can sleep in until 730A I will be happy but we shall see. Happy almost Friday!

Qdoba and I are breaking up

19 May

 That’s right…Qdoba and I are no longer friends. I had such a bad experience there today. I had a BOGO coupon for their Craft Two (similar to a Pick Two option) so one of my coworkers who I haven’t seen in a while and I  decided to hit up the new Qdoba that opened uptown.

I am a pretty spazzy person but it was complete sensory overload there. Music blaring, bright lights and then the big one…..employees yelling all kinds of stuff out. Now, just a little bit of me….I’m the loud girl. I know it and have been this way for a long time and not changing anytime soon. I’m not obnoxious or anything but let’s just say my voice carries. I ordered the Craft Two nachos and taco salad. Then the line of toppings came and suddenly being asked all kinds of things black or pinto beans? Chicken, steak or beef? Cheese, sour cream or guacamole? It was a tad off putting and left me frazzled.


They ended up giving me the normal size of nachos instead of the mini size and mini salad. They have a lovely outdoor patio so my friend walked out there and I hit my tray against a chair and it was like a taco salad pinata exploded! I am talking lettuce black beans corn salsa EVERYWHERE! I was in a skirt so didn’t want to bend on over and pick it up and thankfully, an employee came over and cleaned the mess up. They made me another salad and I got it to go for later, which once I opened it up at my desk for a late snack, noticed that it had three pieces of lettuce.

That is not a salad in my book. It was tasty but the chicken was too salty and again, no lettuce.

And success with another Diet Coke-less day! If I go out to a place that carries Coke products I always get Diet Coke to drink but I got water instead. I don’t have a problem with drinking the water( I usually down 100 oz at work alone) but it felt good to go without the soda. I could also really get used to this whole taking a lunch business as well. Which I will be doing a lot more now since we got EXCELLENT news this morning……we are getting a member from another team in our department to join our team temporarily AND a summer temp (which I hope he or she doesn’t start a fire ALA The Office). But wow, I am so excited. They finally acknowledged how busy we are, how exhausted we are and how much work is coming our way.

 I love how in the meeting Stinkalicious was going on and on about how wonderful this is going to me. Hi Stinky, I do double the work you do each day, don’t get complaints about the work I do, don’t take four smoke breaks a day or a full lunch along with that, I don’t take a full lunch like you do and ask for help. If anyone is getting help, it’s this girl. And don’t even ask me how Stinkalicious has a job still, it saddens me that upper management doesn’t see this at all.

A huge headache hit me on the way home (which is still lingering) and I wasn’t too hungry but wanted a snack. I broke into my Trader Joe’s Edamame Hummus that I bought yesterday with half a pita pocket.

Holy WOW. This was just fabulous. It was rich, creamy, fluffy and everything I thought it would be. This is going to be a new favorite of mine. The wheels are turning as to what I can add this to cooking wise.

After that I cut coupons and laid on the couch watching Family Guy. Say it, you’re jealous of my single gal life style, I know. I didn’t want to get off the couch but it hit 7P which is past my dinner time and needed something other than beer and ice cream (I was seriously contemplating this for dinner).

I made an easy dinner—a grilled turkey and hot pepper cheese sandwich and a sweet potato.

My sweet potato is all about the love

A great, easy, savory meal! It was a bit too much and only finished half of the sweet potato though. And Lincoln is being a bad baby. He isn’t listening to me, is barking his balls off and won’t cuddle with me. Sigh.

And can we talk about Lost last night? What. An. Episode. I need to re watch soon but Desmond was so deliciously evil, I can’t wait to see the last (again, sigh) episode on Sunday. Speaking of delicious, I enjoyed these delicious strawberries during Lost last night

Breakfast was delicious this morning as well—-rich, creamy oats with banana, peanut butter and unsweetened coconut

I’m still not gaga about peanut butter but it’s starting to grow on me. I can see how someone can dig it but I had a negative experience back in high school. It was when Reece’s Pieces came out with their peanut butter cereal and I was hooked. I ate that every day along with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches each day for a month or so and overdid it. Until recently, peanut butter has just skeeved me out (peanut butter and chocolate combo is exempt though for obvious reasons!). One of my roommates used to grab a jar, take a spoonful and just go to town and it grossed me out so much.

Ok, lots of random things in this post. Hope everyone is having a Wonderful Wednesday!

ay brotha

18 May

OMG I am in pain today. My kettlebell session last night was a workout and a half. It hurts to walk, sit, type, etc but oh well, bring on the pain. I may have even whimpered a bit today but I will get over it. It just means I had a good workout :)

And I am glad to know I’m not the only one who is skeeved out by the nips showing through the shirt–thanks for the comments everyone!

Today was a great day at work–not slow but not ridiculously busy. Just enough to keep me occupied yet get me out on time— we like that.

Breakfast was a repeat from yesterday-Chobani 2% Plain Yogurt with fresh strawberries, unsweetened coconut topped with Kashi Crunch Cereal. I have two boxes sitting in my kitchen and never once thought to add it to my yogurt.

The produce for the day

Lunch was tuna salad on whole wheat with baby spinach and tomato and a bag of Trader Joe’s Lite KettleCorn

It used to be that any time I ate popcorn, I would have a Diet Coke. But I had a Diet Coke yesterday and it just tasted gross. I guess it’s actually possible I’m starting to not dig it as much after cutting down on my sugar and trying to cut down on artificial sweeteners as well. I rarely get any sugar free syrups in my morning coffee anymore (whereas I used to get two pumps Sugar Free Cinnamon Dolce every morning) and have cut down to one splenda in my coffee with a sprinkle of cinnamon. But still, not liking Diet Coke? I never thought this day would happen. Pass me the water, thank you.

And get this—this was the first lunch over 10 minutes I got to take in three weeks! I IM’ed a co-worker in another building and asked if she wanted to go for a walk and away we went. We walked 2 miles in 30 minutes and it was a great way to re-energize myself. The sun was out, we caught up on stuff and just nice not to be looking at a computer screen for a half hour.

On a daily basis at work I always have people telling me “If you’re ever in NYC or Boston, I owe you a drink” and I had a guy tell me this today. I told him that he better watch his mouth since I will be in NYC in July and he said we’re going out to lunch. Score for a free lunch! Now, to start collecting on all those drinks that I’ve been promised….

I stopped at the grocery store after I came home and took Lincoln out. I was excited because Bi-Lo had Chobani on sale for $1 so I was going to stock up. And they had none-major bummer. I got a rain check for 10 of them so I am waiting for this sale to end and stock up! They did have Yoplait Greek Yogurt on sale for $1 also but let’s be real, it’s no Chobani.

I stopped at Trader Joe’s as well since I feel like I haven’t been there in forever. In reality, it’s been five days.

And I got some new hummus (hummi?) to try!

I finally picked up a bag of their Pita Puffs

I was running low on my Kalamata Olive Hummus so took this opportunity to finish that up (if you look in the background you will see  a dog waiting for one to drop)

I’ve had a hankering for pesto lately and whipped up a batch

1 bunch of basil

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsp pine nuts

1/3 cup grated parmesan

Garlic, salt and pepper (I add red pepper flakes to mine for a little bunch)

Could not be easier and such a flavorful alternative to spaghetti sauce and it’s amazing on sandwiches

Dinner was chicken breast baked with Kalamata Olive Hummus topped with feta and Farfalle Pasta with mushrooms, onions and pesto

This was a huge plate of comfort. I haven’t had a homecooked meal this good in awhile and will definitely be making this again.

And tonight is the last new episode before the series finale for Lost. I am so sad to see it go and don’t know what I am going to do without it (maybe finally catch up on Glee?) I really need to watch the last two episodes over again and may have to buy the complete series when it comes out. I am such a dork about this show. I won’t even begin to tell you how I go on the message boards to read people’s theories and such! lol

Anyone have any good suggestions for books? I finished Jen Lancaster’s latest book and can’t seem to get into anything else. I love Chick-Lit like Sophie Kinsella, Emily Giffin, Meg Cabot, etc. and mysteries. If anyone has read anything good, let me know :)

Nips

17 May

And no I don’t mean this kind

I mean this kind

All I see today are men’s nips. And it’s because of the date I went on on Saturday night. I didn’t type about this before because I was still kind of disgusted but need to let this out. So the dude I went out with had a nice button up shirt on but forgot his undershirt. And his nips were hard and sticking out through his shirt—eww. It’s all I could stare at and kept drinking in hopes that they would soon go away but they never did. Whenever I saw a guy today, I kept seeing his nips through his shirt and felt sick. I don’t know if he was secretly rubbing ice on those babies or just aroused (I cmon look at me lol) but yeah, seriously just grossed me out.  Ay chihuahua

I’m scarred.

Onto brighter things, I hate this hot, sticky weather. Not only do I feel nasty and can’t do my hair, I want something cold all the time and preferably ice cream. I need to get off this kick ASAP. I tried Blue Bunny Frozen Yogurt last night and it was terrific. I buy the single portions for myself because when it comes to ice cream or chips, I have no portion control whatsoever.

Lincoln gave it two paws up as well

It was a nasty day today, all rainy and humid. I have a rough time on Mondays in the first place so the weather did not help at all. Plus, I had a dream last night that Cher and Alex Baldwin teamed up and were trying to kill me so I was kinda perturbed waking up.

Chobani was on sale for $1 each at the supermarket this wknd and stocked up on plain since that’s all they had. I had Chobani 2% Plain Yogurt with fresh strawberries, coconut and coconut granola for breakfast

This morning was busy so it went by quickly and not too many issues on hand.

Once again, I celebrated National Salad Month and had a BIG Salad with baby spinach, bella mushrooms, zucchini, cucumbers and tuna salad topped with Kraft Light Three Cheese Ranch
