1. Cannot get enough fresh fruit right now. I’m eating like two or three parfaits a day. I’m eating entire cantaloupes every single day. UGH SO GOOD. True story.

2. In sad news, I feel like I’ve sort of outgrown MTV. I remember the days when I lived for weeknights (hello, laguna, the hills and newlyweds) and seriously wondered how on Earth actual adults didn’t watch these shows. Was I an adult at the time? Probably. I literally feared that I would grow up and not have time for the wonderfulness of trash TV. Now… I don’t even know what’s hip.

3. But in good news, I have not outgrown the fabulousness known as LFO, which has been my pandora station of choice. Uh really – the first time I had it on, it played LFO, then Spice Girls, then Backstreet Boys. SOLD.

4. In a few days I’m going to show you something with bacon and bourbon that is totally not these beans at all. You are going to hate my guts.

5. Someone posted this amazing photo on the How Sweet facebook page and it basically just, ugh… sums up MY ENTIRE LIFE.

6. Over the weekend I saw a bumper sticker that read “guns don’t kill people, people with mustaches kill people.” This reminded me of the time my husband grew a mustache to win a bet or something and I wouldn’t talk to him for a month. Remember this? Remember what a creeper he looked like? No, I’m not linking it because it’s DISGUSTING. Remember how I refused to cook him dinner until he shaved? I win.

7. Losing my freaking mind over these cupcakes. No, seriously.

8. You know you’re a food blogger when… you overflow a glass purposely after it overflowed on it’s own. Again. Twice in one week people. My life is sad.

9. Pretty annoyed that my phone continuously auto-corrects “funner” to “dinner.” Um no, it would not be so much “dinner” if you were here. Get it right phone.

10. Guess what? I’m drinking iced coffee a lot. It’s official. I feel old. It has a TON of sugar in it. I don’t have kids, I love my job, I get enough sleep and am an early riser. This isn’t fair. No MTV plus being a coffee drinker. I don’t like.

11. Oh! I’m back in California! I’m losing my mind. Help me. It’s so so so beautiful, but I’m a major homebody. At this point I don’t think I’m going to travel until 2037. Lock me up and throw away the key.

    “I like girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch…I’d take her if I had one wish….but she’s been gone since that summer, since that summer…..” sigh. I’ll have that stuck in my head the rest of the afternoon…

    I am LOVING that bacon sign. Literally laughing out loud Jessica! Summergirls is my favorite song. I’m not even close to kidding. And I ate an entire watermelon by myself this weekend…. ;)

    Watched a bit of a Hills marathon on MTV yesterday morning while “working from home”. I must find listen to that Pandora station and I found those cupcakes on Pinterest the other day. Oh. My. Gosh.

    Oh cantaloupes…my boyfriend and I recently shared a cantaloupe and a pineapple in one sitting and it was SO good. Also, those cupcakes look amazing! I just wish I could get my hands on some Biscoff, it looks divine.

    Oh, I am with you on number 2! I used to live for The Hills and Laguna and now I have no idea what the new “hip” show is. I bet I would hate it though!

    Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy — July 10, 2012 @ 4:54 pm

    I loved Laguna Beach so much that I traveled 8,000 miles from the UK to see the scenery – it is beautiful!

    JulieD — July 10, 2012 @ 4:55 pm

    Does that what it means now that I have turned into a total coffee drinker now? ugh And I’m like your grandma because I outgrew MTV years ago. I’m dying over those cupcakes too. I want to go home but I want to bring my husband and my dogs and cats back out here. It’s so freakin’ beautiful out here.

    You should take what’s on that sign and put it on a shirt. It could be the official How Sweet It Is shirt!

    Cait's Plate — July 10, 2012 @ 5:19 pm

    I’m the same way – I love to travel but I definitely can’t do too much of it. Too much of a homebody.

    Also that bacon sign? Amazing. Or, in the words of Shoshana “AMAZE.” :)

    That poem is amazing, LFO is amazing, MTV used to be amazing, beer in mason jars is amazing, blah blah blah I’m pretty aure it can all be summed up by saying: you and your blog are amazing.

    Kristin — July 10, 2012 @ 5:35 pm

    So last week, I was in the cardio room at the gym. The Hills was on. The GOOD episodes from 2006. You know, before Heidi went crazy and all. And at the bottom of the screen it was hash tagged #retromtv. What the hell?! Those are my college days you are calling “retro”, MTV! Not fair.
    I miss those days. The stuff on there now just isn’t worth it.
    Oh, and I’m pretty sure that I now want a beer in a mason jar.

    I hear ya on MTV – I didn’t think the time would come. I don’t even watch Real World any more. However, I do still watch Teen Mom and Awkward. Yep, almost 30…getting old is dumb.

    Lauren — July 10, 2012 @ 6:13 pm

    I had to laugh about the mustache part. My dad has had a mustache literally forever. Well, when I was growing up he one time shaved it off…and I was around six years old at the time. I had no idea who he was and ran screaming from him like a banshee. I wouldn’t let him come near me until it grew back.

    chelsey @ clean eating chelsey — July 10, 2012 @ 6:46 pm

    1. MTV has been having Laguna Beach and The Hills marathon episodes in the mornings lately. I about died when I turned it on.

    2. I still watch the Real World – no shame.

    3. I once met LFO when I was in high school. It was one of my greatest days.

    4. The next time you go to CA, you need to smuggle me in your suitcase. Come on!

    I had the best of intentions today. I had steel cut oats, salad for lunch, salad for dinner. Then I had waffles with strawberry syrup for second dinner. Now I’m having champagne for dessert. My point is, I’m drinking my champagne and reading your Tuesday Things and being sad we aren’t friends in real life. When I read these, I feel like we’re playing girl talk. Have fun in CA!

    Jessica @{Chic Sugar} — July 10, 2012 @ 9:56 pm

    I think every single thing you posted is something I do, like, or think! It’s good to know there are more of us out there! It’s like we are having a conversation about all these random things! The other day, my boyfriend left a mustache after shaving for about half an hour just to freak me out (ummm, it worked!)

    Thanks for a good laugh on a Tuesday!

    Kenz — July 10, 2012 @ 10:33 pm

    Bah! I created the LFO pandora station after reading this, and now several hours later I still just can’t stop dancing wildly and being giddily happy. I am never switching back to my other stations…ever.

    carrie (acts.of.rebellion) — July 10, 2012 @ 11:36 pm

    omg…love me some LFO… “new kids on the block had a bunch of hits, chinese food makes me sick, and i think it’s fly when girls stop by for the summa, for the summa.”….you totally have that stuck in your head now right?? haha. :)

    Samantha — July 10, 2012 @ 11:40 pm

    I miss the good MTV before all this stupid crap came on. I miss the hills, I miss when nick and Jessica had their own reality tv show, I miss tlc, luguana, and especially the real world. Now they have stupid stuff like jersey shore. And LFO was amazing. Nysnc was my very first concert.

    Amy W — July 11, 2012 @ 8:27 am

    Soooo I was watching TV… Do not for the life of me remember what I was watching but anyways, there is this bar that has beer and bacon night. You go in, order a beer and then they bring you a giant bowl of crispy bacon. I immediately thought of you. And I really want to go.


    • Amy W — July 11th, 2012 @ 8:29 am

      I googled it. Once a month “Beer and Bacon Happy Hour” at a bar in Baltimore called Bad Decisions. Ummm how perfect is that?!

    Katie @ ohshineon — July 11, 2012 @ 8:36 am

    I wish I could say I was eating cantaloupes and giant watermelons daily. Do bags of vanilla finger cookies and frozen york mint peppermint patties count? They could be in the same department… I’ll definitely argue that one.

    Echoing your fresh fruit craze over here, too. Just “rediscovered” granola and I can’t get enough of the stuff. Fruit parfaits all day erryday. It’s major. Also, where in California are you? Wouldn’t it be totally awesome if we ran into each other in the cookie butter aisle at Trader Joe’s? We could have a cookie butter eating party and watch bad TV because sadly, I’m still hooked. Pretty Little Liars, anyone?!

    kyla — July 11, 2012 @ 10:40 am

    The first season of Laguna Beach was amazing, I loooved LC and Lo. Likewise, the first few seasons of “The Hills” were pretty amazing too until Spencer came into the picture. Gaaaaah Heidi should have listened to Lauren and never continued to date him.

    I gave up on MTV when TRL started showing more screaming teens than videos. So..in like 1949 or something. However, I don’t drink coffee except when studying and I watch A LOT of Bridezillas, any show with anyone’s wife (Basketball Wives, Mob Wives, Real Housewives, etc), and anything with any whiff of a Kardashian. So…I’m not a real adult, right? Possibly not even a real person.

    I don’t really understand Biscoff. It seems to be everywhere, but I don’t understand what it is or why people like it so much. Plus, I’m allergic to virtually all nuts, so I’ve never been into peanut butter, nutella, or other things with those textures. I’ve gathered that Biscoff is nut-free (right?), but I’m so unexcited about the texture that I just can’t motivate myself to try it. Those cupcakes do look pretty awesome, though…
