Banana Nut Cheerios – Holy cow. These things are amazing! I’ve always been a Cheerios fan, usually gravitating toward Honey Nut, as I love anything with even a hint honey. But these bad boys are delicious. I pack them in zip lock bags for afternoon snacks at work, or grab a cup to munch on when I’m loungin’ round the house. At 100 calories a serving, I could do a lot worse. Plus, aren’t Cheerios good for your heart? Oh, Cheerios, how I love your banana-ie goodness. (Side note: I actually hate bananas, but love all things banana flavored. Oh, and banana pudding… I love that stuff!)
Gatorade Rain – The really light purple colored one. They say it’s “berry” flavored, but it doesn’t really taste like berries to me. Tastes more like cold, refreshing spring rain, flavored with a hint of heaven and caught in a bottle. Ha! Okay, so maybe it’s not really as delicious as heavenly rain -whatever that tastes like- but it’s pretty dang good, if you ask me. (Which you didn’t, so I’ll move on now….) Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm – Perfectly moisturizing, without being sticky. Plus it smells like honey. Need I say more?
Victoria’s Secret Sweet Daydream body fragrance – YUM! This stuff smells delectable. It’s a blend of apple, raspberry and vanilla. I keep a thing of body lotion in my bathroom for after-shower use, a tube of hand and body creme in my purse, in case my hands get dry when I’m out and about, and a tub of the body butter at my desk. Excessive? Probably. But the body butter is great for moisturizing your hands without leaving them all greasy, which is good when you’re typing all day. You don’t want a slippery keyboard! Or at least I don’t.
Cupid – Have any of you watched this new show on ABC? Basically, Cupid (you know, the god of love) gets kicked off of Mt. Olympus for making too many casual matches. So, he’s sent into the real world with the task of matching 100 people so he can return to his godly home – oh, and all of the matches have to be “true love," not just random hook-ups. Sappy? Predictable? Unrealistic beyond belief? Yes. But still charming.
Adam Lambert – Look, I know there are a lot of people bad mouthing this guy right now. Saying he’s weird or criticizing his sexual preference. But you know what? The bottom line is that this boy can sing. And not only can he sing, he can put on one heck of a show. He delivers week after week. And if he happens to like boys, well, that’s none of our business. What about Freddie Mercury, from a little band called Queen? Or Elton John? Or Boy George? Or Lance Bass? Or Clay Aiken? Leave him alone and let him entertain us, because he’s doing an amazing job. I’ve watched his last few performances more times than I can count. Love him.
Cooking – I’ve actually cooked two meals this week. That’s a record for me. At my house, leftovers last forever because it’s usually just me. And Toby totally doesn’t appreciate my chicken tetrazzini. Unlike Paul, who recently appeared on the Maury show. He apparently loved someone's chicken tetrazzini. Too bad that someone was his girlfriend's best friend.
