Things I've Learned in the Past Week

1. When you go to hang out with blogging friends, don't just assume you're about the same age as them. You're either immature or in denial. Being the oldest blogger in the bunch kinda stinks.


2. When your friend informs you that your eyeliner or mascara is smudged under your eye, don't believe her. Because it's not make-up, it's your dark raccoon eye circles that no concealer can cover. And no matter what you go through, they're still there.

3. It's not OK to eat half a bag of Stacy's Cinnamon Sugar pita chips after you run. Running is not an excuse to just eat more. 

4. In one week you can gain back the 3-5 pounds you lost from your previous stomach flu.

5. If you say, "I will sleep late tomorrow." three times, as you lay in the bed before you go to sleep, you definitely will not. You'll actually wake up about an hour earlier than you usually do and just lay in the bed for an hour, tossing and turning, before deciding to just get up. Of course, everyone else in your family will sleep until 9:00.

6. Blue Bell has a new ice cream ... Mocha Madness. I'll give you the scoop (no pun intended) on the taste later. If you live in the North, you may not have Blue Bell ... how sad for you. It's divine.
Here's the description: 
A rich coffee ice cream containing roasted pecan halves and chocolate chips, surrounded by a smooth caramel sauce. Mmmm ...

7. In relation to #6, I think I may be lactose-intolerant. How horrible would that be? No time this week to discover if I am or not, but will work on that next week.

8. An 11-year-old girl can eat two cans of tuna, with eggs, relish, and mayo ... the whole nine yards ... by herself for lunch.

9. Netflix's watch instantly movies consist of Porky's, The Terminator, and Booty Call. Seriously, Netflix we need some updated movies.

Oh M. Belle... #2 was a painful reminder of the day my husband asked me if I had been crying. "Your eye makeup is all smudged under your eyes," he said. Nope!! No crying had happened. And all the makeup was in place! It was those lovely dark circles!!

Do y'all have Breyer's ice cream? Much better than Blue Bell. I could eat a half gallon in 2 days. Just bought two last night.

Sounds like a very educational week.

Rachel said...

Being the baby of the group isn't all it's cracked up to be either. :) You feel stupid most of the day.

Why OH WHY did you bring up the Blue Bell???

Mike, Brie and The Three said...

I will say, Mary Kay concealer WILL cover those circles. Find a consultant or email me and I will get you a tube!

Numbers 1,2,4 ad 5. Me.

I miss Blue Bell Ice cream. We don't get it up here in VA. That will be the first thing I buy when I get back.

Blessings

Don't you just love Blue Bell. I really feel for the people up North! My Aunt is coming next month from NY and her only request is that the freezer be stocked to the gills with Blue Bell.

Debra said...

Wow! You learned an awful lot in one week didn't you? :) As for the circles under the eye...oh how I wish I didn't have them! I finally found something that works fantastic for mine....it's called Well Rested by Bare Minerals and I can't live without it!

We don't have Blue Bell icecream here....Boo hoo. :(
