Tuesday Things.


1. I finally ordered a pumpkin spice latte and did so with skim milk. UGH. I am so done with that. I am no longer participating in skim milk lattes. I don’t do it at home and I’m not doing it when I go out. It’s like putting water in your latte. gah-ross.

2. Sooo… I really want some nude ankle/mid boots. You know? And I was looking for some on the internet on Friday night. And I googled “nude booties.” Yeah. Don’t do that.

3. All I want in my life right now is this arugula and prosciutto eggs benedict.

4. Actually, wait. That’s a lie. What I really want in my life right now is an interior decorator and a stylist. No, not want – NEED. I need those things. I have zero taste in home decor and fashion and basically look like I live in the 80s every single day. In fact, the only thing I might have decent taste in is food… and even that is debatable.

5. Last week I started to make granola bars,  grabbed the cinnamon and shook a ton in to my dough. Only it wasn’t cinnamon. It was chili powder. I then proceeded to spill an entire two cup container of sunflower seeds all over the lazy susan pantry… which if you’re family with one of those things… you have to remove everything to clean something up. Fun day.

6. Not surprised by Dexter. Not at all. So annoyed that with only a few episodes left, Hannah is still in the picture. Why do we care about her? STOP RUINING THIS. So thrilled that Boardwalk is back. Want to live in the 20s. In a few weeks, my life will be complete with the return of Homeland, Eastbound + Down, Nashville and The Walking Dead. And I already don’t have a life. My DVR might blow up.

7. 22 signs you’re addicted to Friends. #2 may be true.

8. What are you having for dinner tonight? I’m making massive mofo taco salads. Yep.

9. Not only am I disturbed at the nonexistence of a bacon emoji… why no taco emoji? Why aren’t we up in arms about this?

    I’ve been up in arms about the bacon emoji for awhile now. Never thought about a taco one!! Agh!!

    I’m being completely serious when I say I google imaged “booties” this morning. (BEFORE reading this) Because I wanted to check on something. But I can’t say what. Never mind.

    There are many, many emoticons that don’t exist that make me Sobbytown, USA.

    You always pick the best buzzfeed lists, and I will love Friends FOREVER. My kids will watch my old Friends dvds and not whatever silly sitcoms are popular when they get that age. :)

    Target has some cute booties right now. I got the “Molly” in taupe recently. Now they are on sale! http://www.target.com/p/women-s-merona-molly-shootie-taupe/-/A-14467641#prodSlot=large_1_18

    I’m in serious need of a stylist and interior decorator, too! And that bacon. Yes, I need some of that bacon.

    Re: a stylist, have you tried Stitch Fix? I’m old now (31, sigh) and no longer have time/effort to shop, so they send clothes to me. So far, it’s been fun and is helping me branch out of my style rut.

    allie@sweetpotatobites — September 10, 2013 @ 11:07 am

    For real there needs to be a bacon and taco emoji. And the 22 signs you may be addicted to Friends? That’s me right there.

    When I was younger, our grade 8 school trip was to a place called “Teen Ranch”. After it was over, I decided to try looking them up online. Big mistake. I was 12 years old.

    Even worse than no bacon or taco emoji…. Why is there no sandwich emoji?!

    Belinda @themoonblushbaker — September 10, 2013 @ 11:38 am

    There needs to be a runny egg emoji to go with that bacon. I suggest we write a strong worded email to them!
    Yes skim milk is lies! it is water dyed white…

    cindy — September 10, 2013 @ 11:41 am

    I am SO STOKED about fall time tv. summer is such a dead zone, I can’t even wait.

    there’s a serious lack of mexican-ish emojis…where the tacos and nachos be at?!

    speaking of questionable fashion…I may have ordered burgundy “coated wash” skinny jeans this morning. they are kind of shimmery. I also just bought a leopard print chiffon top with a leather collar…I plan on wearing them together. I don’t know what I’m doing.

    Whenever I hear U2’s “With or without you,” I think of Ross trying to apologize to Rachel when she finds out about The List he made comparing her and Julie’s pro’s and con’s. He calls the radio station, they play it and then stop it halfway through once Rachel calls to tell them what Ross had done.

    And don’t get me started on the “we were on a break” episodes.

    That Friend’s list is great. I totally did no. 9 on that list the other day. “Pivot!” LOL.

    April @BarbellsandBellinis — September 10, 2013 @ 11:53 am

    Too funny. I literally just Googled “bacon emoji” before reading this post. I was unsuccessful in finding one. The horror.


  18. #
    Angela @ Health's Angel — September 10, 2013 @ 11:56 am

    Ha! I am insanely paranoid about spice mix-ups like the one you mentioned. I always triple-check that what I’m holding is in fact cinnamon and not chili powder or cumin.


  19. #
    Angela — September 10, 2013 @ 11:59 am

    I’ve been so upset over the no taco emoji for a year or so now. Especially on Taco Tuesdays. I tend to use the man with the mustache and the flan.. but it’s just not as good.

    Larry — September 10, 2013 @ 12:36 pm

    OMG RIGHT?! Those emoji’s…. definitely not enough of them. At ALL. I would also enjoy a griaffe emoji and an emoji of a man in a sombrero. OLE!

    If you’re looking for a stylist, you might wanna try this subscription package where women can be sent some clothes/jewelry/etc, and you can choose what you wanna keep and what you wanna send back. I found out about this a couple days ago and have been sharing with so many people ’cause it seems like a really cool subscription service. Hope it helps!

    Tieghan — September 10, 2013 @ 12:38 pm

    I gave up on Dexter like 2 weeks ago, I just could not handle it. I was getting so annoyed! LOL! Fall TV could not start fast enough. :)

    Love the nude bootie idea! Originally, I was thinking I need a new pair of dark tall fall boots, but are nude booties thing this season? I am liking the idea!

    why no cheese emoji? thats seriously whack.

    Heather — September 10, 2013 @ 12:42 pm

    That FRIENDS list was made for me. I never watched it til the show was over, and now I can’t stop!

    Carrie — September 10, 2013 @ 12:47 pm

    In general there are not enough food emojis. I was just saying to my husband last week “how can there not be a taco emoji!”

    mofo taco salad sounds delsih – we are having your chipotle beer shrimp quesadillas!

    Robyn — September 10, 2013 @ 12:50 pm

    Where on earth can I find season 2 and 3 of Homeland!? Just binge watched Season 1 before my classes started again…and it only took me 2 days. I know you’ll understand though.


    • Shiloh Barkley — September 11th, 2013 @ 8:58 pm

      Season 3 Hans premiered yet on showtime, and I bet season 2 will be released on DVD the same time that starts….that’s usually how it works.

    My DVR is also close to blowing up. I also watch “The Newsroom” on HBO with Jeff Daniels. LOVE IT!
    I saw a Season 4 preview of the Walking Dead recently and, how shall I put this? INTENSE is the only word that comes to mind.
    Also a big Homeland fan- love Claire Danes.
    Netflix FINALLY added Season 2 of Revenge. I posted on their Facebook page that I finished Season 1 before the dawn of mankind. The next day, I received an email alert that Season 2 was now available. Nice!
    Grey’s Anatomy is going to lead up to Cristine having another breakdown- then that’s how she’ll leave the show.
    Seriously, can’t get enough of Nashville. Deacon is the epitome of sexy.
    I have seen the entire run of Friends at least 10 times (maybe more, I lost count.) I don’t even apologize for it. :)

    Connie — September 10, 2013 @ 1:24 pm

    I, too, am sad about the lack of bacon and taco emoji. We totally need them. No. 5 reminds me of the time I spilled a storage bin of brown rice. Yes. It was most definitely one of the least fun things I ever got to do!


  32. #
    Jessica S @ Comfort and Joy Food — September 10, 2013 @ 1:27 pm

    2. seriously made me lol.
    9. I totally agree! There’s a freaking shish kebab emoji but no bacon?! Why not replace one of the eleventybillion clocks or random shape emojis for a taco?

    I believe this was Ron Swanston from Parks and Rec: “The only thing I hate worse than lying is skim milk. And that’s water, lying about being milk.”

    I don’t know why I keep watching Boardwalk Empire when every scene I cover my eyes expecting someone to get killed! I can’t handle the surprise. 9 times out of 10 I’m thankful I did it!

    Yay for HOMELAND! Been.FOREVER.

    Dani — September 10, 2013 @ 1:49 pm

    I went on a show binge–three pairs of booties from Target. Help me! I thought you could appreciate…

    Chrissy — September 10, 2013 @ 2:03 pm

    Had a similar nude booty experience once. The website for Dick’s Sporting Goods is Dick’s Sporting Goods dot com. NOT just Dick’s.


    • Jessica — September 10th, 2013 @ 2:08 pm

      ha ha ha i have done that MANY times by mistake.

    JulieD — September 10, 2013 @ 2:18 pm

    Our DV-R will probably blow up too. We record way too many shows. I made Curtis clean off shows he’s never going to watch…in anticipation!

    Rachel — September 10, 2013 @ 2:36 pm

    The recipe for the eggs benedict sounds amazing! Can’t wait to try it!

    I totally agree with Friends :)

    Ashley — September 10, 2013 @ 2:52 pm

    #1. Agree 100%%%% I don’t get latte’s often but at home I buy half + half for my daily cup o’ joe. Recently, I was out of h+h and used straight up WHIPPING CREAM in my coffee and continued to do so for 5 days.


  41. #
    Kylie @ immaeatthat — September 10, 2013 @ 3:31 pm

    I’ve totally done the grab the “cinnamon” mistake…only I accidentally added cumin, not chili powder. Either way, way less than ideal and completely blehhhh.

    Lauren — September 10, 2013 @ 4:03 pm

    well thank you for adding yet another blog to my bloglovin feed — Foodie Crush will consume my life. And the bacon emoji comment is spot on! Rarely do I send a text emoji free and I’m sure if there were a bacon one it would never leave my recently sent tab


  43. #
    Miranda — September 10, 2013 @ 4:10 pm

    I love that Friends list! Also I am so sad Dexter is ending (and Breaking Bad) and I agree….leave Hannah! I think they just have there to prove how far Dexter has come in caring for someone and that person knows what he does so he’s not lying. I’m so excited for Nashville to come back!

    Amelia — September 10, 2013 @ 4:29 pm

    You crack me up. I don’t drink milk (in general), but I can somewhat relate to the pumpkin spic latte comment. I made homemade almond milk this week and there is no comparison between homemade and store bought. Homemade= creamy, frothy, and rich. Store bought = tastes like cardboard & too watery OR gummy (depending on brand). Now I’m addicted though and am already on my 3rd batch in 4 days. Whoopsies!


  45. #
    Sues — September 10, 2013 @ 5:02 pm

    Bacon and taco emojis are 2 I’ve been stressing over too! What the heck. #2 made me laugh! A few weeks ago at work, a client told me about a new social network in Japan called “Line” and that Coca Cola’s page was a good example. So I googled “Coke Line” AT WORK. Oops.


  46. #
    Jessicaisbaking — September 10, 2013 @ 6:24 pm

    The lack of taco emoji is a big problem. They are my favorite food! Why so many sushi emoji and no taco or bacon is a major problem. Call a summit.

    Christina @ The Beautiful Balance — September 10, 2013 @ 6:28 pm

    So…did you end up finishing the granola? I definitely think you could have made it pretty tasty–chili powder and all.

    I’ve done that with parika. I thought I was shaking paprika and it was cayenne. Oops.


  48. #
    Averie @ Averie Cooks — September 10, 2013 @ 6:32 pm

    It’s like putting water in your latte. gah-ross. <– SO TRUE!!!

    And welcome to your first PSL of the season. I posted my first pumpkin recipe today. Gosh, people start so early and I felt like I was already late to the party so did it!

    Your spill and your cinnamon/chili powder confusion. Omg that would happen to me. My mom apparently thought one day she was reaching for a big glass of milk on the sink and actually chugged some Ivory dishsoap. This is a story from the 70s that she still tells :)

    Emily — September 10, 2013 @ 8:01 pm

    I have been using stitchfix for over a year and I love it! I bought everything in my last fix cause they always send the best stuff! As an emoji addict, I have been dying for a bacon one too!

    Vanessa — September 10, 2013 @ 8:50 pm

    hahaahahahah! Nude booties! I can just imagine the look on your face with what popped up with that search! :)

    Tonight, for dinner is Trader Joe’s orange chicken and brown rice.
