1. I went running in the rain (okay it was sprinkling) yesterday with my pup and loved it.
I’m supposed to take it easy on the running until I get new shoes and my new orthotics. I run slower with my dog because I can’t use my arms as much and I make her sit at all the street crossings even if it’s clear. So I figured it was a perfect way to make myself slow down + spend quality time with my buddy.
After our 3 mile jog with only 1 poop. Her, not me. My mom refuses to pick up my poop if I do it in public.
2. I am a control freak in the kitchen.
This shouldn’t shock you, as I am an all-around control freak and perfectionist with a dash of OCD. But when people ask if I want to bake or cook together, my initial reaction is, “YES!! That sounds like fun.” I mean, I do like people. But then I think about it and it sounds awful because I like things done a certain way. I think Anne get’s me.
It doesn’t matter if I’m making Toy Story cupcakes or macarons, I like things done a certain way.
I’m discovering how bad I am. Last week, Kyle and I made Julie’s delicious homemade granola bars for Kyle to take to work (my second time making these, and this is definitely a keeper). I don’t use as much honey as she does though.
Back to my point. Kyle joked that he was surprised I was actually letting him do things (instead of telling him to do something and then grabbing it from him and doing it myself).
Kitchen bitch. That’s me.
3. I hate the incorrect usage of “sugar free”
Honestly, I mostly see this with celebrities on Instagram and what not, but it still drives me crazy.
For something to be “sugar free” it means that there is <0.5g of sugar per serving.
So when you make that smoothie of fruits, veggies, and what not, and claim it is your “sugar free smoothie.” You mean to say that there is NO ADDED SUGAR. Sorry, there is natural sugar in those ingredients.
4. I have a hard time spending money on bras.
TMI? Too bad. I will drop $100+ on running shoes (if needed), yet I will only go to Victoria’s Secret if I have one of those coupons. Ask me to spend >$30 on a bra (and $30 is pushing it), and I’ll ask you if it’s diamond encrusted and signed by the President. #cheap
What kind of cook/baker are you? Controlling or loosey goosey?
Is there something silly you have a hard time spending money on?
