Wednesday, October 24, 2012


I was going to post a recipe today, but I didn't want to cook. Typical. No wonder the hubs is so skinny. Poor thang.

On a scale of 1 to I should have my own TLC show, how much of a fatty am I if ants crawl all over my keyboard when I open my laptop? Guess I should stop eating cookies over it, huh? (Those last three words were unnecessary.)

Grahm left me today. You better enjoy him, D.C. My snuggle panda is pure gold... although I sure hope he isn't cuddling with anyone while he's gone.

I bought the new Taylor Swift album yesterday (not sure this a blog-worthy update). Regret. Only four songs are decent. ("Ronan" made me cry...in a good way. My ears weren't bleeding or anything.) She's like candy corn to me. I don't love it; I don't hate it... but I can't stop stuffing my mouth with those diabetes-causing orange kernels.

I've cried 8 times this week, and it's only Wednesday. Either I am A) female B) teensy stressed C) out of ice cream. If you said D) all the above, you win. Now go get me some chocolate chip cookie dough.

Cheers to a happier end of the week!

I tooootally bawled hearing Ronan. Go read the story about him; his mom blogs. And it's heartbreaking and soul-lifting all at once.

Thanks for the TSwift review! I was debating the purchase myself.. and that is a hilarious comparison to candy corn! Lol!

Pamela said...

lol you are too funny!! I am actually really liking her album! I do not care for we are never getting back together or some of the slower songs like beautiful tragic - my favorites are - the lucky one, the last time & starlight! :)

Katelyn said...

Oh my goodness, I've been so stressed out lately too! I may have indulged in some ice cream last night. Haha. If I could send it to you via email, I would TOTALLY share my ice cream with you. :] I hope you have a better end to the week and that you're time away from hubs goes very quickly!

Cute pic :) If it makes you feel any better, I had ice cream and wine for dinner last night. Chin up, buttercup! FUPA! There see, I can put it on a blog too :) Hope it at least made you laugh!

Amy said...

i've cried 4 times already this week...dang vampire diaries, dropping food on the floor, and not having any chocolate in the house... :)

I love Taylor Swift.. not sure I love her enough to buy an entire album though. Her new stuff is sounding a lot better than stuff she's done in the past in my opinion. But that could be just me. LOL Super cute blog! Excited to be a new follower!

Jordan said...

I highly recommend Half Baked by Ben and Jerry's. You can thank me later!

Ashley said...

I like Taylor Swift as well! I found her songs initially to be geared towards a younger audience, but now she is starting to brnach out a bit and I like it!! She got talent! I would love some cookie dough! Hope your week gets better!

CoastWithMe said...

I must say....I love reading your posts! You always make me laugh! And honey...a few ants never killed anyone. I give you permission to keep eating your cookies over your laptop:)!

I love your review of Taylor Swift's new album! I think I will just buy individual songs on iTunes instead of the whole album! I'm so glad you found my blog! I love yours!! New follower!!

Ugh I think everyone is having a rough start to the week this week - at least I know I am! And I agree with Jordan - Half Baked Ben and Jerry's is the way to go! Also, their oatmeal cookie ice cream is ridiculously good :)

J and A said...

I still need Tswifts new album I love her but sometimes it takes me time to LOVE the whole album. Ronan for sure made me cry. I also have cried like 16 times this week. I loved this post. :)

Chelsea said...

What's he doing in D.C.? Hope you feel better!

Tara said...

You crack me up! I totally agree with TSwift analysis! And as for the crying...you know what they say also causes emotions to run high....starts with a P and ends with an "reggo"? Just kidding - kinda ;) Yet, I cry and I'm not, I'm just a girl with is also the likely excuse for emotions on high ha. Hope the rest of your week is fab!

Angi said...

I love your candy corn comparison...I feel the exact same way. Don't love it, don't hate it, Can. Not. Stop. Eating. It. Especially the chocolate ones...this, I'm convinced, is why I gain weight in the winter. Sigh.

Loving your blog - new follower!! :)

Nikki said...

All of the above!!! Hubby has a trip soon too, I'm with you :(

julia rose. said...

I'm telling you... IN LOVE WITH YOU! Your blog is amazing :)
1. I cry all of the dah-jim time!!
2. I'm always too tired to cook.
3. TaySweezy needs to go back to high school... but then again I still find myself getting hooked on her songs. Ronan? Is incredible!! I actually first heard the song through a blog- check out the story... but beweare... this may mark the 9th time you cry this week!! http://www.sophistifunkblog.com/2012/09/i-stand-up-for-my-dad-ronan.html

you better be sharing some of that chocolate chip cookie dough with me!!!

Lindsay said...

"Ronan" is such an amazing song! Have you heard the story behind it?

The family is a local one from here in AZ so I've been following her blog for a while now. So heartbreaking and inspiring at the same time!
P.S. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! :)
