Dear God, Please unclog my arteries.
Happy Valentines Day!! Holidays are threatening to my health due to the seasonal candy that comes along with them. Valentines day has always killed me due to conversation hearts. I LOVE them and almost ate a whole bag this week yesterday. For some reason I was fooled into believing that mini eggs and Cadbury eggs are for Easter but clearly I was wrong. Have you seen the shelves at all your local grocery/convenience store? Mini eggs and I have a very special relationship; a love affair really. I would give my soul for a bag of those bad boys. Really, I probably would. Then there are Russell Stover cream eggs. That bastard Russell should be killed for inventing something so wonderful. I may or may not have eaten a coconut cream egg last night. Let us not forget about Jelly Beans. Not just any beans, they must be Brachs. Years and years ago, my friend Ashley and I were hanging out and I just HAD to stop at CVS for a bag of jelly beans. She had been sugar free for a while and had lost a bunch of weight on WW. I opened my bag to find the biggest bean ever. Never was there a bean so big, and it was in my favorite flavor orange! I held it up with pride and as I boasted, she grabbed it and crushed it right into pieces. Hahahaha, she was mad that she couldn’t eat it. We still laugh at that moment till this day.
From April till October there’s a seasonal candy hiatus but then Halloween comes in like a wild beast. Candy corn is natures miracle. Again, must be Brachs. Genius. Never will I buy a bag that does not contain the big pumpkins. MMMMMMMMMMMMM. Pumpkins or sex? Pumpkins please.I’ve been known to eat a bag in one sitting. And then my teeth crumble out.
I stole all these pictures from google images–don’t be fooled.
Yesterday ended up serving as our Valentines day celebration due to a change in plans tonight. After several hours at Starbs, we came home to some lunch– english muffin with peanut butter and a huge bowl of soup. Monica inspired me to try this peanut butter with flax from Trader Joes. I must say, I really like it. The flax seeds are very much a part of this butter and I love that it has a huge opening for stirring. Bonus.
Eventually we made it outside for our five mile run. It went by pretty quickly since weather was gorgeous. Of course I was happy to get it out of the way. The rest of the afternoon was spent watching TV, doing homework, having sex, and playing with Ellie. Haha, just wanted to throw that one in there to make sure you were paying attention. Such a jokester.
For the last two years we’ve gotten sushi on V-day so we kept the tradition alive. We hit up Fins and to our surprise got sat right away. That place is AMAZING!! If you live in Boston and haven’t tried it, you must. Melissa, maybe we should go? I was in no mood for seafood so I ordered my standard– Idaho maki and grilled vegetable and avocado maki. I started the meal with a wonderful side salad with ginger dressing.
After dinner we rented The Proposal, which I have now seen at least three times. I love that damn movie and sort want to be Sandra. The night ended with a big fat cannoli.
