    I bought Cookie Butter finally, and I blame you for any weight I may gain in the next month (or however long it takes me to eat it all. (probably a week)).

    Two things:
    1. What day were you at the zoo?! I was there Saturday.
    2. Where is your instagram? Is it totally creeper of me to notice that your profile is MIA?
    oh and one more thing
    3. I bought neon shorts at Target because I thought it would make you happy. Again, not a creeper.

        I just searched your name and it found you but if I look in my followers/following or click on your name from a photo of mine you liked, nothing comes up. I haven’t seen any photos that’s why I was on the hunt

    LOVE the pictures, but especially the ones of the bacon!!
    Is that BELLA???!!! She’s all grown up!!! But still very beautiful!!
    And is that Mr. How Sweet? It’s so very nice to “meet” him. It’s funny, that is what I pictured him to look like, no kidding.

    Leinenkugel does equal nectar of the GODS. SRSLY. (And it makes the best beer bread, too). Love, love, love their summer shandy with slices of orange in it.

    Have you tried Good JuJu Ginger beer? It’s a good summertime-omg-so-hot-I-want-to-die beer.

    I miss Sweet Valley High. I think Jessica would totally approve of your shoes. I approve of the Red Velvet Cheesecake. Never try the Junior’s version or you will eat it EVERY SINGLE DAY. It is so much better than the Cheesecake Factory version. Yes it is possible. Dangerous.

    Sidenote: I went to Catholic school and in the 5th grade Sweet Valley High books were banned after Book#5 was confiscated and read by the nuns. Do you remember book #5?

    Reply

    • Jessica — May 29th, 2012 @ 9:26 am

      I don’t remember book 5, but I went to Catholic school too and now I can’t remember if we were allowed to read them? I think I read them mostly at home.
