6 Apr

Hi everyone—hope all is well! It was 90 frickin degrees out today and not too bad of humidity. If only I didn’t have this little thing called work getting in my way. Le sigh…….

So as y’all know, I’m going to DC on Thursday. And what does DC have that Charlotte doesn’t? Ok well besides the obvious answers:

I’m so excited for this and starting a list of what I need to get there, happy 🙂

 I got around to trying the new Yoplait Greek Yogurt

I topped with even more strawberries, coconut granola and unsweeted coconut.

Verdict? I loved it. I liked the consistency of it and it wasn’t too sweet or runny like I had been expecting. And this had 130 calories and 12 gr of protein so that is a definite plus. My heart will always belong to Chobani but I would definitely buy this again.

Starbucks, you complete me.

I was pretty busy today since a lot of my deals are going on hold this week (of course when I go on vacation the work stops) which was nice. I hate it when it is super slow because I just want to do nothing and fall asleep. I caught a little break and one of my co-workers and I went on a 20 minute walk and covered a little over a mile.

Lunch was boring since I’m trying to clear out the fridge. Roast beef sandwich on Trader Joe’s Whole Grain Bread with dijon, one slice of cheese and baby spinach

Nothing too exciting but it was great.

 Random factoid about me….when I try to flirt I fail. Yet when I act like a bitch and standoffish, they come a’flockin.

Location: Work elevator.

Parties Involved: Scott Stapp look alike and I

Time: Noon

Scott Stapp look alike: “Can you believe this weather?”

Me: “Yeah, it’s supposed to be hot”

And I may have done a mini shimmy.  Yeah, I am being serious. Oh God, I looked like a dork! But a dork who flashed her left hand to show there’s no ring so yeah!!!

I wanted to make tacos for dinner and stopped by Trader Joe’s and they were out of both tomatoes and avocadoes…..I’m being serious. I think it was guacamole Armageddon or something.

I came home to this lovely vision

“Hi, pollen. My name’s Tiffany, nice to meet you. What? You want to be friends? No? Ok I thought you did because you’re making sweet love to my car”

WTF is up with all the pollen?? I’ve never seen this much before and can’t breathe today, ridiculous. I would also like to know where spring has gone because her greedy step-sister, summer has come in to steal the spotlight.

I picked up a beautiful orange pepper at Trader Joe’s….it kinda looks like a pumpkin!

I made chicken tacos with chopped jalapenos,onions, shredded cheese, chopped pepper, green onions and salsa. Just an fyi….I make tacos a lot when it gets warm out. I love how colorful you can make it!

I was achy after dinner and needed some goof stretching. I turned off the tv and lights, opened the blinds and cleared out my coffee table. I got about 20 minutes of good stretching and yoga time in until someone decided to join me.

If this dog isn’t spoiled, I don’t know who is.

Likes and Dislikes of the day

3 Apr

Happy Saturday all–this is going to be a long one so get comfortable.

I woke up at 8A

What I liked about this

  • I got to sleep in

What I didn’t like about this

  • I had to set my alarm on a wknd so I could get my oil changed

I still wasn’t going to let my oil change appointment get in the way of me missing big weekend breakfast

I had cream cheese on hand for once since it was on sale $.67–holla and I made stuffed french toast stuffed with cream cheese and Trader Joe’s Superfruit Spread

I used two sliced of Trader Joe’s Whole Grain Bread and 1/8 of the Philly Cream Cheese package with three tbsps of the Superfruit Spread

What I liked about this

  • Umm, everything? It was amazingly delicious and decadent. I really like that word and don’t use it too often but I think if I were to start using it often, it wouldn’t have the allure it has.

What I didn’t like about this

  • It had to come to an end

It was beautiful when I stepped outside and so happy spring is here!

What I like about this

  • Gorgeous weather, I can start tanning again and just happier in general

What I don’t like about this

  • The fact that I forgot to wear SPF at the pool yesterday and got sun on one side of me but not the other. Oh and the fact that I am extra crispy and not original recipe

I then went to the Toyota dealership to get an oil change since I’m driving to DC next wknd. I got my car in August and just hit 4,000 miles this past month. I really don’t like to drive anymore. And I had a free coupon for an oil change so yay!

What I liked about this

  • Free oil change-duh. And the potential to see hot grease monkeys 🙂
  • They have an ultra cool cappuccino machina including Butterfinger cappuccino. I had to try it (I only filled half the cup and filled the other half with regular coffee)

What I didn’t like about this

  • They rotated my tires without telling me that it is an additional $20 so I had to pay out-of-pocket. Not good customer service there.
  • No hot grease monkeys 😦

I drove across the border to South Carolina afterwards to get gas

What I liked about this

  • South Carolina gas is usually $.20 cheaper a gallon than North Carolina. Plus I used my Bi-Lo reward points and got an additional $.30 off which brought it down to $2.25 a gallon.

What I didn’t like about this

  • The people in York County cannot drive. They either go 40 mph or 95 mph on the highway and it’s frustrating

After I got gas I drove a little further to go to Rainbow AKA the ghetto baby girl store that I love so much. I mentioned how I think of Jennifer Lopez as a style icon and I love the graphic, flashy tops she wears. Since I am going to DC I need new clothes right? Right.

What I liked about this

  • Holy good buys batman!!

I don’t know if I’ll wear this in DC but I could wear it out or to work which I really like.

OMG frickin love this top. I love the cut, that it ties in the back to make my waist smaller and accentuate the girls (which in turn can get free drinks??!) and pockets in the front. Fabulous.

Buy one, get one 50% earrings. They are the same in gold and silver and I looooove big earrings.

What I didn’t like this about this

  • That I was called “Snowflake” by one of the girls in the store since I was the only white chick there. I felt like Alicia Silverstone in Beauty Shop

It was 2P by the time I got home and was FAMISHED! I had so much food on hand and made a roast beef sandwich with lettuce, tomato, dijon, low fat mayo, Muenster and american cheese. Hey, I warned y’all I love cheese. I also had half a bag of Trader Joe’s Lite Kettlecorn

What I liked about this

  • Like breakfast-everything. This was a MONSTER sandwich and totally filling. I know a sandwich and popcorn sound random but it was a great combo

What I didn’t like about this

  • That I never have lunch meat on hand to make sandwiches like this, we may need to change that soon.

I had some tofu leftover and wanted to use before I go to DC so I patted them dry and marinated in A1 Cracked Peppercorn

I also cut a sweet potato up and doused in evoo and McCormick’s All Seasoning Spice

I spent some quality time with Lincoln afterwards

What I liked about this

  • “Shake it Like a Salt Shaker” by Ying Yang Twins came on and we danced to it

What I didn’t like about this

  • We started to play catch with his favorite squeaky toy. I threw it, he ran to it then ran back to me without it. I then explained the mechanics of catch and retrieve to him but am 99% sure he didn’t understand me

Soon it was time to make dinner so I threw the potatoes in the oven and grilled the tofu up on the stove top.

Dinner is served!

What I liked about this

  • The sweet potatoes were absolutely amazing

What I didn’t like about this

  • The tofu, not so much. The best I can compare it to is Al Pacino in “Gigli”

Amazing actor, has played remarkable roles in the past and has never really disappointed. But eventually, he does disappoint. And the disappointment goes by the name of Gigli…..or A1 tofu

Butler won!!!  Butler won!! Butler won!!!

 So happy for them and cannot wait for the WVU game.

What I like about this

  • I am happy for Butler since they were the underdog and my sis went there. And WVU hasn’t gone to the Final Four since 1959 waaaaaaaay longer before I was a glimmer in the eyes of my parentals

What I don’t like about this

  • I am not in Indianapolis to enjoy it. I feel about 85% better but wasn’t better enough in time.

Off to watch the game!
