1. I’m having a terrible frappuccino problem. It’s bad. And wonderful.

2. Also been eating gummy bears for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I wish I was exaggerating but I’ve gone through two containers since Saturday.

3. Spring has more than sprung which means I already have the AC set to 67 in the house. My husband has to sleep with a long sleeved t-shirt on. I turn on the fan and walk around in summer clothes. What is wrong with this picture?

4. Have to share this adorableness by one of my favorite bloggers ever. Can’t even take it.

5. Okay, if you haven’t watched last week’s Nashville, stop reading. I, on the other hand have watched it about six times since Wednesday. I am a giant dork. THE KISS. Oh em gee. I don’t think there has been a kiss like that since Eric and Sookie in season 2 of True Blood. Oompf.

6. Speaking of TV, if you plop yourself down in front of it at night as often as I do, please tell me you’ve seen this commercial. I die every time.

7. THIS. It’s real.

8. I love how after mentioning Darius Rucker’s version of Wagon Wheel last week, you guys FREAKED OUT ON ME. Including people in my real life. Oh my gosh, you know how wretched my taste in music is – OF COURSE I knew about the original version and guess what? Of course I like the new one better. Plus, it’s nearly impossible for me to listen to anything but country music these days. Aside from James Taylor and the occasional 98 Degrees throwback. I tell you all the time I’m a terrible critic. Did you think I was joking? I like movies better than books and remakes better than originals. In fact, I’d probably like it even better if Mariah Carey sang it. Kidding. Sort of. Definitely. Wait. I have no idea anymore.

9. After reading the 27 ways you are not Carrie Bradshaw… I sort of have a bone to pick with #12. Pretty sure most people would agree that I am the most dramatic person in the world.

10. A bunch of people recommended this moisturizer on my beauty faves posts and HOLY COW I am in love. It smells like fruity candy or something and might be the best moisturizer I’ve ever used. Plus… SPF 40! I wore this all day outside on Sunday while watching the marathon in the peak sunlight hours. Officially hooked.

11. I’m eating this for dinner tonight but roasting the heck out of it. Also: extra cheese.

    I shop in the target kids department…I got a sequin top on clearance for New Year’s Eve! Haha! I too am loving the neon accessories, I like neon as an accessory not a big outfit item. That’s just me. And yes that commercial is very funny!! Also with you on the AC, house AC isn’t on yet, but I often have max air blasting in the car!!

    Oh and just to fuel your frappuccino addiction, its frappuccino happy hour this week, I think they are half of between 2 and 5 or something like that!!
    I am going to investigate that moisturizer….

    I’m 23 and seriously considered buying a navy blue and white chevron skirt from the kids department on Saturday at Target. As in, I pulled it on over my pants in the middle of aisle to see if it fit. It was only an inch too short. Clearly I am still waiting for my growth spurt. I’m waiting it out with the scarves, sunglasses and oversized necklace I purchased from Target instead.

    have you taken advantage of the starbucks frappuccino half price happy hour?? i really think they are taking advantage of me and my weakness for mocha.

    do you have a favorite gummy bear brand? i am a gummy snob and will only consume haribo. an entire bag at a time. large fistfuls at once. it’s ugly.

    that commercial makes me wish we had kmart here. i hadn’t seen it. too funny!!

    i’ve only watched half of last week’s nashville. i’m racking my brain to figure out who the kiss is between. i’m off to fast forward to find it.

    a new moisturizer? per your recommendation, i just purchased st. tropez bronzing mousse and the dry shampoo. i can’t keep up!!!!

    I always want to buy all the children’s clothes at Target too. It’s even worse because I can actually fit into some of them and the only thing that stops me is the weird looks I would get for carrying a little girls dress into the dressing room.

    Not sure if you know, but BJ’s sells a 6 pound bag of Black Forrest gummy bears for $6.99. A. 6. Pound. Bag. Plus they’re the good ones so count as fruit. Except the green ones. They count as vegetables.

    If you like roasted asparagus then try them on the grill. Toss with toasted sesame oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and sesame seeds and grill away. The toastiness of the sesame oil makes it amazing!

    I bought that moisturizer a while back and haven’t used it yet! I have been desperately trying to use up my old bottle before I start a new but now that you say it’s as fabulous as I am hoping it is, I might just have to break down and give it a shot. I was really trying to not be that girl with a gazillion bottles of half used products but I can’t be perfect at everything, right?
