If You Like Piña Coladas

Pin It!

And getting caught in the rain… Well I don’t know about getting caught in the rain. Who likes that? Maybe warm rain. My mom is a super-special lady who deserves nothing less than the best of everything. I’m sure many of you feel the same way about your moms. So spoiling her on Mothers’ Day is […]

Power to the Peanut Butter

Pin It!

Happy Mothers’ Day! Hopefully all the mommies out there are being pampered like they deserve: breakfast in bed, pedicures, and lots of hugs.  My amazing mommy received a special breakfast (which I’ll write about tomorrow).  But because I was working on her breakfast, my own had to be quick and simple. A lightly-toasted whole-wheat English muffin […]

Summer Vacation

Pin It!

Finally, summer vacation!! It felt like you’d never come. A few friends and I *tried* to celebrate last night by watching a movie… but it was one of the worst movies known to mankind. It was not the sweetest thing. More like the grossest, most-pointless thing.  If there wasn’t crude sexual humor in a scene, it […]

Pin It!

As good as avocado hugging is, you might want to take Kate’s funny advice to not end up with a big, green mess. (Three cheers for big, green messes)

Fat Talk

Pin It!

A few months ago, the Atkins Diet felt my wrath when I stood up for Carbs. Well, Atkins can breathe a sigh of relief now, ‘cause I’m going after someone else! Who came up with the idea to call the important nutrients that do so much for us “fats” anyhow?  Why associate something so good […]

Chocolate-Covered Fashionista

Pin It!

Or not so much. I love how other bloggers use the “mirror trick” to take photos of their outfits, so I wanted to try it myself.  First try was dreadful: See what I mean? Second try was even worse!  So I gave up and tried using the “delay” button instead.  Much better! Although I do […]
