Because pictures supposedly say 1000 words, and I’m not feeling super chatty, here’s some fun stuff that came off of my phone as of late.
I was sitting on the train, reading and minding my own business, when all of a sudden it felt like something hit my sunglasses. I look up an a lens falls out. After inspection, I realize it’s the EXACT same thing that happened a few months ago. The frames cracked. Just like that.
Seriously H&M – pull yourself together.
Want to hear about another rip?
Stupid Nature Valley Granola Thins. You entice me with the chocolate. And the sale at Walgreens (I should have known). But the package is misleading. The fantastic treat I’m expecting when opening it is drastically smaller than the packaging and way thinner than the normal Nature Valley granola bars. The chocolate sticks to the cardboard it’s on. Crumbs fly everywhere before it’s even out of the package.
If there are mice in this office, my desk is where they party all night.
A disaster on all levels that leaves me hungrier than I was before. Dislike.
My happy hour plans involving pizza and beer were cancelled earlier this week (oops- that was a dislike, too), but I was comforted by pasta.
It’s white pasta that has been hanging out in my house for some time now (the box is never-ending) , and even though whole wheat texture is preferred, it was fine because I overloaded it with brussels and mushrooms and red sauce. I also added chipotle seasoning to give it a smoky flavor. For added sassiness. A pleasant “win”.
A pleasant surprise would be the massive box of goodness I received from Chobani this week!
I was unfortunately not able to make a dinner they held for some of the Chicago bloggers last month, however, they still insisted on sending me fun Olympic-themed goodies!
My favorite part? Other than the coupons for free food, I am absolutely in love with the beach bag that has speakers built-in. You know what I’ll be rockin’ out with in the upcoming weeks along Lake Michigan! Holla’!
I just started “If You Were Here” this week. So far it’s ok. But being as how it’s “loosely” based on things that have happened to her, and she’s changing names of places in the Chicagoland area that I know of, it has me all confused. I love every single one of her memoirs she’s written (that I’ve read- there’s one I haven’t gotten to yet). This novel? I’m underwhelmed so far.
However, I will continue to read it because I not-so-secretly want to be Jen Lancaster’s BFF. CALL ME, JEN!
And there you have it in this episode of “pics from my phone that my friends sometimes flip through and call me weird for”.
