OMG you guys, this is like the best blogging day ever!!! First of all, we finally got our Internet today! Whoo hoo! So now, instead of sitting on the floor at my old apartment, I 'm sitting on the floor of our new house because there's only one place to connect to the Internet via cable until D gets home tonight to program the wireless router. boo. the things I do for blogging. Jk. I am SO glad to be back! I have so many things to post! But since it's Friday, I'll start with the crazy foods first! you all know how much I Love pickles , and my husband knows it too. He was walking through the store the other day and spotted these on the shelf he KNEW I had to have them, so sweetie pie brought home some sweet pickles for me...candy pickles to be exact! He specifically requested I review them for Freaky Food Friday, so here they are! Personally, I thought they were delicious! But, no, they're not really candied, as far as I can tell. They tastes just like sweet pickle relish, with the addition of that shocking green hue. If you like pickles, you;ll probably like these. Even you Allison--look, no nubs! :)The second reason today has totally rocked my freakin socks off so far is that I finally got some much awaited mail! there is nothing I love more than getting stuff in the mail, and the nature of these goodies, made their arrival all the more sweet! I got a cute little package from Liz full of stuff I've been DYING to try: PB 2 and some SOY FREE bars--awesome! Upon seeing the PB2, i immediately altered my lunch plans to include some peanut butter mousse, whipped up with some Fage 0% and the oh-so-fantastic PB2. This stuff is amazing!!! This little concoction was made even better thanks to the contents of my second package Bear Naked Granola sample! They were giving away freebies on their website a while back and this was the only flavor with no soy in it, so I for sure wanted to try it out, and this was the perfect way to give it a shot. Y-U-U-U-M-M-M-Y-Y! Thank you so much, Liz, for sending this my way! I adore the PB2 and can't wait to try the bars. You made my day! Don't forget to check out her blog over at Eat, Sleep, Swim,too!
Finally, the third reason my day has been so super, and definitely the most heart-warming, is the terrific response I received on my last post! I may not have a ton of readers, but I absolutely have the kindest, most thoughtful ones out there! i am so grateful for all the encouragement and empathy displayed in your comments, and I am so thankful to have you as my friends! HUGS, HUGS, HUGS! I love you guys! I hope your Friday is as special as mine has been so far, and your weekend equally lovely. xoxo
