I love anything with mint. I can consume deadly amounts of it if I don’t have supervision. It’s a little embarrassing. Jeremy usually has to tell me when to quit because he knows I’ll regret it later. :/ Ok. I just lied. I don’t love all things mint. I am not a fan of Extra’s Dessert Delight Mint Chocolate Chip gum. It just made me disappointed that I wasn’t actually eating mint choc chip ice cream. It was just ‘meh’. My niece absolutely hates mint. I tried to give her a  kiss one time and she pushed me away because she could smell my chapstick. Rude. She also can’t stand to brush her teeth with anything other than Tom’s strawberry toothpaste, and if she smells your minty fresh breath after giving your teeth a nice wash, she’ll shove you away. I don’t get it. I guess I’m like that with bananas…..but my disgust with bananas will have to be it’s own post.

I found this recipe earlier and I am really tempted to try it. I’ve never made truffles before, so I’m kind of nervous.

this is now on my to-do list for this week. :] yummo!

uhh that’s awkward

8 Feb

Do you ever have those moments where you think to yourself “Did I seriously just say that? Oh my gosh. I’m that awkward person in the room.” Well, let me tell you something….I am that person. It happens to me ALL of the time. I don’t get it.

Last night I was seeing someone that I haven’t seen in a really long time.. Here’s what went down:

Me- “Hey, how are you?” (lean in for that awkward side hug)
Them- “Great, how are you?” (semi hugs back)
Me- “Doing really great, how are you?” —- FOR REAL did I just do that? awesome. ohh ha..uh.. ha I just said that. ha”

So I walked off… you could call me the awkard conversation ‘fleer’.


Or how about the time you see someone (just one person) at Target and it totally catches you off guard and then you say, OK well see you guys later!” (you guys??? great, now they think that I think that they are fat.)

Or when someone says. Happy Birthday girl” and I chime in with,Happy Birthday to you too!”

I am terrible with conversations with people when I’m intimidated by them. I totally forget everything. I forgot where I worked the other day. I forget where I live when I’m trying to explain the area. I try to remember with You know, over by that new shopping area on 35…what’s that street called? totally blanked.” (ha omg I can’t believe I can’t remember. ahhhh!!) Then they answer with, Oh no, actually I don’t. so sorry.”— well let me just walk away, do some googling on where I live, and get back to you. FOR REAL?!

It’s a bit ridiculous at times. Phone calls are the worst. I called my dentist the other day to schedule an appointment for my husband and I a couple of weeks ago. The receptionist answered and asked, Do you mind if I put you on hold?”. Without delay I quickly responded, “Yes.” in a really upbeat tone. I mean’t “no”. but did that come out? of course it didn’t. She didn’t know what to say. I put her in the awkward spot. awesome.

ohhh man. I need help.

Do you ever have awkward moments? please, tell me them. It will make me feel better. 🙂

I found this on my mother-in-law’s computer tonight. It is from last March and apparently (<— is this spelled right? it totally looks wrong) we thought we were pretty dang funny :] I have a feeling it was like 1 or 2 in morning…..
