1. So craving this watermelon papaya rum smoothie. Oh my freaking gosh.
2. Celebrity couples dropping like flies. Gwen and Gavin? What is going on? I deserve to know. Basically, I feel like THIS about it.
3. Right before we left for vacation I was in the garage grabbing something and found a pair of… camo crocs. In my husband’s size. Let’s just say he is not a crocs wearing person. Like at all. He is pretty crazy about shoes. So. The mystery continues. All I got out of him was “I needed them.” Uh… for what?!?!
4. What does your favorite cereal as a kid say about you? Mine was (is?) cinnamon toast crunch. FOREVER.
5. Have you seen the new Lay’s chip flavors? Ugh. I cannot do this. I tried last year. I think the wasabi ginger ones were, like… okay. But rueben chips? Chicken and biscuit chips? I can’t. I just can’t. In the literal sense, not the annoying millennial girl sense. Have you tried any?
6. Please tell me that someone remembers this. Back in the 90s (I think) there was a commerical for Chi Chis restaurant and guys were singing “fry yi yi yi… eye eye eye iced cream.” Clearly my way of writing that out is atrocious and makes no sense but this has been in my head for like two months. I keep singing it to Max. I have no idea why and it’s driving me insaaaane.
7. I am very obsessed with off the shoulder tops right now. I think because they remind me of Kelly Kapowski and fashion that my mom said I wasn’t old enough to wear at the time.
8. On taking time off. Holy smokes how good (and true) is this?!
9. Finally, with one episode left of True Detective, I thought this one was pretty good. At least pretty exciting and it didn’t make me google “what the hell just happened” immediately after. What did you think? Also, are the time jumps seriously killing you like they are me on Masters of Sex? And UnReal finale! Thoughts?!
10. This morning as I was making some pita bread and Max was sweetly playing on a playmat, I noticed he had crawled into the kitchen and when I looked, he had climbed under a bar stool and pulled himself up inside. Like baby jail. It’s currently on my snapchat (howsweeteats) now and I really just can’t. In the annoying millennial girl sense.

While most of the flavors did not appeal, I have tried the Lays Truffle fry wavy chips and they are so freaking good. Addictive. I’m not allowed to buy another bag.
noooooo don’t tell me….
The Reuben chips. Gah. I was skeptical too because these things ALWAYS disappoint, but they are ridiculous in the best of ways. How do they get them to smell like rye bread and taste like kraut and thousand island dressing? HOW? But I also am obsessed with reubens, so I might be biased…
Oh mine is forever Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I actually felt a craving and bought a box last week, so guess what I had for breakfast today ;)
Kristina does the Internets
did eddie ever become obsessed with duck dynasty for a period (like me?) or does he enjoy hunting? (<- I think no, but its worth a shot?) <- could explain the camo… not the crocs part though.
also, all the celebrities that I ship (<- because I'm hip and went through an awkward period on tumblr where I was a hardcore finchel glee fan) are dropping. blake + Miranda & gwen + gavin & ben + jen… WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO?!
I WILL say I’m holding out faith for Nicole & Keith though: http://www.eonline.com/news/671013/nicole-kidman-shares-sweet-photo-of-keith-urban-and-their-two-daughters-to-celebrate-9th-wedding-anniversary
I think they’re my new faves? I don’t even know who’s left anymore really. but you should probably look up Nicole kidman on jimmy fallon and see (a) him freak out when he realizes he could have dated her and (b) how adorable she is when she fights about who loves keith more. <- it's totally what won me over!
WEST COAST TRUFFLE FRIES! I have never been more serious about anything ever! (That is an exaggeration…maybe). They are probably my favorite chip ever. It has already been mentioned in our house that we go buy out the store.
you’re selling me. I’m going to cave.
We bought 4 small bags of each from Walgreens so we didn’t have to commit and did a taste test. The truffle fries were outstanding, as stated above. My nearly 20 month old liked the Reuben ones. I don’t know. Might just be a toddler thing.
had no idea they had small bags! this might be a game changer.
I remember the first time my little guy put himself in baby jail… cutest thing ever!
Ummm Gwen and Gavin? Ugh! And Re: True Blood, I’m really curious to see how they wrap that up – did not see a few of those things coming in the last episode. I’m able to follow it ok, but I feel like it’s kind of like the Godfather where I’d have to watch it like 6 more times to really pick up on all the characters and their connections to each other.
The biscuit and gravy ones are LEGIT. Like, I opened the bag and it smelled exactly like sausage gravy. The truffle ones aren’t bad either but DO NOT EAT THE GYRO ONES. They taste both good and bad at the same time – super weird and super not cool.
Chi Chi’s had fried ice cream, ergo the ““fry yi yi yi… eye eye eye iced cream.” song :)
Those chip flavors are gross. Give me a good old salt and vinegar any day.
Watermelon Papaya rum smoothie?
Find me on Bloglovin
I saw that Will and Jada Smith might be divorcing and that Gwen and Gavin were divorcing all in the same day. What is going on?! I feel the exact same way.
Will and Jada was a rumor thank god!
OMFG, you are the worst. I had completely forgotten (read: blocked out of my memory) that commercial!
And now it will be stuck in my head, mashed up with the Battle Hymn Of The Republic (I have no idea why) for life.
I loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch! I was also a big fan of Cocoa Pebbles :)
I am not sure I know anyone that likes those chip flavours. YUCK!
I am also loving the off the shoulder look. So great for summer…which I hope lasts quite a while yet.
My favorite cereal as a kid was Kix Berry Crunch. Turned the milk a disastrous shade of purple but oh well.
Also, my coworker and I have decided we need to invest in an office fainting couch so we can properly express our shock and grief over all the celebrity couples who are breaking up. Did you hear about Reba?!
my husband and my brother in law BOTH own camo crocs. they are atrocious and i don’t understand.
Ok, I joined Snapchat, just so I could see the adorable photo of baby Max under the stool. So cute! What is up with babies & stools though? My 8.5 month girl is always crawling under these two low stools we have & getting stuck. Or pulling up on them when they’re next to another bit of furniture & again, getting stuck! Usually when it’s very easy just to navigate past them! Crazy babies..
HA! about the Frito Lays — for some reason all of those flavors taste like salt to me? I dunno but the comments above have me wondering about the truffle ones.
Also, HA HA to the crocs. I’m not a croc person myself and neither is my husband, however, a friend of ours (adult male) is all about his crocs and he is honestly the LAST of my husband’s friends I would expect such fashion behavior from. He claims they are like walking on clouds and let his feet breathe. I guess I’ll never know.
I’m so with you on True Detective. Unfortunately when I don’t understand what’s going on in a show, I tend to fall asleep or fall in the smartphone suck. I’m trying to be better because when I don’t get it, not watching it carefully doesn’t help right? I just loved the first season so much and I didn’t have to re-watch/google every episode.
Well, some friends and I had a tasting of all the Lay’s flavors. The winner was a tie between Truffle and Rueben. I didn’t taste truffle at all, just an amped up sour cream and onion. Rueben was good. Gyro really has a lamb taste. I loved that one. Biscuits and Gravy was more like Stove Top Stuffing “smell/taste” to me, but was still good. I’m not sure which I would vote for to stay around though…
Still love me some Captain Crunch….
I am obsessed with off the shoulder tops this season yet they’re hard to find without looking too prairie-like. Anthro has one nice polka dotted one but it’s very puffy. Do you have any links to sites that have others?
I agree with Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It’s my go-to guilty snack. But I never eat it with milk. Just can’t.
I bought all 4 flavors for a ‘tasting’ at work. Gyro was AWFUL. I spit it out and had to (aggressively) wipe my tongue. Biscuits and Gravy? Just ehhh. I agree with the Stove Top Stuffing comparison. The Reuben tastes like a reuben to me. I wanted to dip it in thousand island dressing! The guys think it tastes like rye bread. The Truffle was good until I couldn’t get the taste to go away. I think it will win (it’s more mainstream) but Reuben is my choice. That said, I probably wouldn’t buy ANY of the flavors.
BTW, what about Reba? Jeez, after 26 years you’d think you could make it, right? Eesh.
I just bought the West Coast Truffle Fries Lays chips and was kinda disappointed. I LOVE truffle fries and can never get enough but the chips were lacking truffle flavor and overall the flavor wasn’t that strong. My husband agreed and just shrugged it off as truffles are too expensive for $2 potato chips lol. I was really hoping for more flavor.
I thought that the dialogue between Quinn and Rachel on UnREAL at the end was soooooo weird.
Favorite cereals were probably Cheerios, Chex and Frosted Flakes. Closest thing in the article was Rice Crispies, and description was dead on.
Miss Piggy and Kermit is now the breakup that I am taking the hardest.
What’s with the ‘was’ regarding Cinnamon Toast Crunch? Mine is most definitely an ‘is.’ Forget high fiber, low whatever, I love it and that is that. Try it instead of Rice Krispies for S’Mores.
I see the shows that are all the rage and I just don’t get it. So brutal. I’m watching a guy build amazing treehouses or game wardens in Maine; that’s my escape I guess.
soooo i may not be looking hard enough. but i know you love the kendra(?) blow out spray? you said it shortens drying time?? i was trying to find your amazon link, bc if i’m going to buy it, why not help you out.. but.. uh. i cant find it. hahah
The West Coast Truffle fries are the only flavor that sounded remotely appetizing so I grabbed a bag this weekend – do it, you won’t regret it. And why do I feel the unrational need to mourn celebrity couple’s breakups? Glad I am not alone in this.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch forever! I also like Rice Krispies which has transformed into an adult obsession with Special K.
Girl…the truffle fry chips are worth. it.
Also that chi chis commercial totally happened and now thankyouverymuch it’s in my head. Plus I found out a few years ago what “chi chis” actually are in Spanish. Ummm… WHY WOULD THEY NAME THE RESTAURANT THAT?! Seriously google that business.
My favorite cereal as a kid was cheerios with a banana sliced up into it. I’m not on the list but I’m thinking it probably would say I had a deprived childhood. lol
The taking time off article was super interesting. I know it’s common in academia for professors to take sabbaticals. It would be great if this was implemented/encouraged in careers outside of academia.
GAHHH I was hoping you’d have an item about the PSYCHOTIC SEPHORA BEAUTY INSIDER REWARDS going on on 8/10! mostly because if you find it acceptable to buy frivolous amounts of makeup just to get one, then that’s all the bad influence I need to do the same ???
Definitely not alone on the Chi Chi’s song. I’ve serenaded my husband with it myself.
Also, even though they were fake crab and probably canned shrimp, I would cut a bitch for some Enchiladas Cancun right now. And that weird sweet corn mush they gave you. I miss Chi Chi’s sometimes…
Crocs…ewwww…I’m totally judging him now. ? My favorite cereal was Alphabets Cereal. I’ve bought it as an adult, but it’s not the same.
Wasabi and ginger wouldn’t appeal to me. I can’t stand wasabi. But Reuben though – now that sounds good!
