1. I've been missing my Disney days a lot lately, especially all the amazing people that I met on both of my programs... and today I was reminded of this lovely lady.
My awesome and insanely talented roommate Colleen from my second College Program. This girl is hilarious, and on top of being gorgeous, has some serious pipes. Gurl can siiiiing.
Two things actually reminded me of her today: I went to Sweet Tomatoes for lunch (SO GOOD), which was one of our favorite places to go. There was one just a few minutes from our apartment, and it made us feel healthy. You know, because we had a nice big salad before we ate entire loaves of bread and pounds of frozen yogurt. One time, we actually took Tupperware with us and took some bread and baked potatoes with us. Hopefully no one from Sweet Tomatoes reads this and bans me. I promise I won't do it again! We were poor! And hungry!
The second thing that reminded me of her was seeing a commercial (watching Frasier on the Hallmark channel because I'm 90 years old) that we both seriously love. Because it's hysterical. If you haven't seen this, you are in for a treat... at least if you're easily amused like me.
2. If you've read this blog at all, you might be aware that I have a slight shopping problem. Unfortunately, this problem is not reserved to clothes, running shoes, and expensive jewelry. Like any good foodie, I am horribly addicted to Williams Sonoma. I just got the newest catalog and looked through it 3 times before I could possibly put it down. Somehow they constantly come up with some new tool or gadget that I didn't know I needed, but I desperately need. Like Zoku quick pops. SERIOUSLY. Who doesn't need that?! And don't even get me started on the fancy machine that cores, chops, slices, and probably sprinkles magical pixie dust on fruit. The catalog had it pictured next to the greatest idea ever that I am planning on trying tomorrow, even if I don't have the fancy machine.
WHY HADN'T I THOUGHT OF THIS?! Okay, so, this is a picture from Whole Foods... and the Williams Sonoma version had raisins instead of chocolate chips which sounds fabulous to me, but you get the idea.
3. I am big on skincare. I force skincare on people. I've got D-Money going into girly stores like Lush all by himself so he can pick up his fancy face wash. And this is not the first time I have done this... I shoved eye cream onto my poor unsuspecting mother, I've given many a lecture to anyone who will listen about the importance of sunscreen, and I singlehandedly cured my first serious boyfriend of his acne problem. Of course, this made him feel attractive enough to cheat on me, but that is an entirely different (and incredibly bitter) tangent.
My drugs of choice include Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser from The Body Shop, Deep Cleansing Oil from DHC, and the amazing drugstore find, Apricot Scrub from St. Ives. This is just the beginning of a long list of things I shove on my face. And I do it all looking something like this.
David's excitement to have me move in with him just died.
Okay, that last one was possibly the most boring tangent... blame my brain, because when I thought to myself "hey, self, you're almost out of Deep Cleansing Oil," it immediately thought it would be brilliant to tell you all about my skincare obsession. Because you don't think I'm crazy enough.
