Random Conclusion

No matter what time of day I set foot in Wal-mart, it is always a mad house. Every aisle has 14 shoppers, and 3 empty carts that you have to knock outta your way dodge like a freakin' obstacle course in order to get my $3 hair spray. Is saving a few bucks really worth fighting the Wal-mart crowd? Really!? Really!?

Thirsty Thursdays

One of my favorite cocktails is an Island Breeze Martini. I always order this from one of my favorite local watering holes, and every single time I drink it- I literally float away to San Souci, Jamaica (where we went on our honeymoon). It. is. to. die. for.

Island Breeze Martini
-1 ½ ounces coconut rum (Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay preferred)
-1 ounce pineapple juice
-A splash of grenadine in an ice-filled shaker
-Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass
-Garnish with a fresh pineapple slice

Share one of your favorite cocktail recipes! I'm always open to trying new drinks! :)

My Very First Wordless Wednesday! :)

I leave you with the Men of Country Music- enjoy ;)

Peggy's Palate

So my inner fat girl's name is Peggy (this has been a long standing joke in my group of friends).

Basically, I blame any and every craving for junk food, fatty food, fried food, sweets, snacks, etc. on Peggy. She's my go-to-girl when I'm angry at myself for eating something bad (but oh so good). Case in point- today as I went home for lunch to fix myself a perfectly healthy 300 calorie Lean Gourmet meal (by Michelina's- they are SO good!). I placed my non-junk-food meal into the microwave for 2.5 minutes. During this dreadfully "long" 2.5 minutes, I realized I was too hungry to wait for the cooking machine to ding, and decided to have a snack. But not just any snack...I'm talking a sinful snack...Miniature Hersheys chocolates leftover from my Christmas stocking. OH, but it didn't stop there. Seeing as one of Peggy's all time favorites is sweet & salty combinations...I HAD to have the Lays plain potato chips in french onion dip to go with my sinful chocolates. Damn you Peggy!

Some of Peggy's Fun Favorites are:
-Baon cheese fries with ranch dressing
-Fried pickles with ranch dressing
-Goobers aka chocolate covered peanuts
-Reese's mini peanut butter cups (I pop these like nobody's business!)
-Carbs of all shapes and sizes
-Anything sweet and salty
...Just to name a few.

I imagine Peggy looks a little something like this...

What is (or would be) your inner fat girl's name???

Starting a Blog- Take 2.

Soooo last year I got a wild hair and tried to start a blog. Notice the keyword tried. I think I posted 3 times, and then forgot about it. So after following a few blogs, I have decided it may be a good idea to start mine up again. So here goes!
