So you know how it’s impossible to get in and out of Target without spending less than $50? Like, IMPOSSIBLE. Even worse when the BF is in tow, because he gets sucked into that “impulse buy” / “cheap deal” area right by the doors, going through all the bins talking about why we need every single thing. So he picked these out – matching owl luggage tags. Pretty much the most adorable luggage tags ever. Now, we just need to go back to Target for some suitcases. Clearly I was in no place to resist.
Last week on my lunch break at work, I was
slumped over a picnic table in defeat chatting with mom on the phone enjoying our last not-bajillion-degree day when I looked up and saw this
My first thought was that it needed sunglasses. I mean, it’s bright out! And we don’t have much shade around here… It took ALL of my self-control to not put giant sunglasses on him. (Yes, CLEARLY it’s a “him”) Sure this sounds like something that wouldn’t take that much self-control, except that our office is currently decorated in a “beach” theme of some sort, which involves pairs of giant sunglasses hanging all over. Torture.
Every day I look out the office windows at the blinding sun and shed a tear for our poor tree. For we have so many giant sunglasses and he has none! Poor tree.
In less depressing news I finally found my one true love.
For awhile I was pretty sure that they didn’t really exist, then (at Target of course) there they were. Waiting for me. Then, I had to make one of the hardest choices of my life, peanut butter pop tarts, or peanut butter & chocolate pop tarts? BF innocently suggested that I get both, but I knew how dangerous that was. So, I chose the plain peanut butter, AND THEY ARE SO GOOD! It seriously takes like eating a peanut butter cookie … filled with peanut butter. I didn’t get to toast it (because I ate it at work, where we don’t get to have a toaster and trees don’t get to wear sunglasses) but it was SO DELICIOUS!
The only thing I didn’t like is that IT ONLY COMES WITH THREE POUCHES! Although, that’s probably for the better. I still couldn’t help feeling cheated when I opened it… after opening boxes of Pop Tarts all my life and seeing four pouches of toaster pastries in there, THREE!? What kind of garbage is that!?
Since it’s summer out and nothing quenches thirst like a freaking iced tea lemonade from Starbucks (you’d think I’m some sort of commercial, but I’m really not, I just love their passion tea lemonade… Especially when it’s 100+ out. Even BF agrees and he thinks that all tea “tastes like leafs and twigs”… except this one. So when I found out that I can buy this at the store I snatched it up quick (along with the green tea one, which BF would NEVER drink… because, ya know, “twigs” or whatever) and now BF and I have been making our own passion tea lemonade!
And I don’t know what has gotten into me because I’m not big on mac & cheese, but apparently if you put Mike and Sully on it I will sell myself out and buy it by the palette if I can.
I realize that at some point I will have to actually eat it, but I will love every bite while I masticate the crap out of those adorable little guys. Anyone else excited for Monsters University? No? Just me? Nevermind then…
I’ve been working out again (to work off all the pop tarts and mac and cheese) and when I work out I look for pretty much any reason not to. For example, I almost turned around and drove back home when this happened.
But I spent a whole like three minutes in the car untangling them instead. I’m so proud of myself for persevering.
Because when you persevere through a workout, you get to eat these for dinner:
And who doesn’t love meatball sliders?
