Confessions Part II

  • I am in love with my new shoes. What makes them even better? I got them buy one get one half off AND they were already on sale. 100_4524
  • It may have taken me forever to finish this, but I finished Skinny. I REALLY enjoyed it! It definitely made me think.DSC_0089 (2)
  • I bought these Starbucks gift-cards several, several days ago. Have I mailed them? You bet NOT. DSC_0091
  • I am obsessed with mangoes…of all varieties! I found some new ones  that are from Mexico and taste like a cross between lemon + mango.

  • I almost peed my pants when I found out that my grocery store now carries a NEW type of all natural, Greek yogurt that is CHEAP(er than Chobani/Oikos).

  • I am not partial to ANY brand of Greek yogurt, though. I love them all!

Share YOUR latest “confession”!


  1. haha! you’re such a greek yogurt slut! 🙂 i’ve recently become partial to the tj nonfat greek yogurt. tangy but not too thick. tj knows their sh*t!
    my latest confession: i tear the recipes and workouts out of the mags at the gym and then put them back by the cardio machines

  2. i’m convinced that chicken and sweet potatoes are all I need to survive 🙂

  3. Awesome new shoes! I have been seeing some like the pair on the left and LOVE them. Cinnamon toffee almond butter sounds preeetty amazing too!

  4. Omg I LOVED Skinny 🙂 One of my fave books I’ve read this year….probably in the past 5 years or so honestly! Really makes ya dig and face some uncomfortable parts of yourself.

    Also when I ate dairy I was a total Greek yogurt whore. Whatever brand was on sale was in my cart 😉 haha. I have 0 brand loyalty!

  5. i must read that book…..that nut butter sounds scrummalicious!

  6. That nut butter looks like the BOMB! 😀
    I’ve been meaning to pick up that book, I keep hearing rave reviews about it. Now I definitely need to get it.
    And a super huge YAY about the greek yogurt!!! I’m a yogurt fiend for chobani, my wallet just wishes it was cheaper haha 😉

  7. i JUSt put up a post reviewing skinny!!! SUCh a good book!!

  8. Eating sweet potatoes would be a fun job haha.. I love my veggies roasted too!

    My confession: I drink WAY too much coffee and I like it haha

  9. Those shoes are WAY too cute, where did you get them?!
    I have been wanting to read that book, glad to hear that its good, I guess I’ll have to go pick it up!
    My confession: I would rather be laying out by the pool all day instead of going to work 🙂

  10. Mmm, that pizza looks great! There’s a Greek restaurant around here that makes a veggie pizza that looks a lot like that; its delicious, but still nothing can beat Mellow Mushroom in my book! There’s seems to be a sweet potato craze running through the blogworld today; this is like the fourth post I read where someone ate sweet taters… and I myself just had them for lunch, too! Haha. I can’t stand mangoes, though… I don’t really like any tropical fruit, to be honest! Not even bananas. Thanks for reminding me that I need to go read my book… its “Persuasion” by Jane Austen. Not my choice, but my school’s. So far its put me to sleep twice, and I’m only on page 75… yawn,

  11. You KNOW I love the mango and sweet potato. Two of my all-time favorites! 😉 Those new shoes are adorable too!

  12. What was the book Skinny about? I saw it the other day at the bookstore.

    My confession: I ate like half a pint of ice cream last night.

  13. YOU MUST SHARE THE RECIPE OF DA NUT BUTTAAAAA! YUMM! ive never heard of the book skinny!! ahh u can never have enough sweet tatas and chicken!! LOVE you beautiful!

  14. Roasted veggies are my FAVVVVVVVVVVV!

    my confession? I have eaten the same meals every single day for a good 6 weeks. Eek!

(although, not gonna lie, Fage will always have my heart!) 😉 and OMG both your homedone coconut butta’ and almond butter look UNREAL! I WANT SOME NOW GAHH! 🙂

    My confession: This week, I haven’t been able to get into my pajamas fast enough upon getting home from the gym. Its been so nice to be a bum all evening. 🙂

  18. i want to hear more about that book. Thoughts??

  19. Mmmm… that pizza looks delish! I love pizza so much, haha!

    3) That is the most amazing nut butter combination I’ve ever heard

    What is Skinny about?! I love finding out about new books

  26. Adore mangos too- especially the nice and ripe ones. I also can identify with the Greek yogurt feeling. I almost squeel whenever I spot a new brand/flavor at the store. Have a good night!

  27. Your nut butters have got me all excited.

    Its been a while since i’ve had roasted sweet potato, now i want some because you’ve tempted me 🙂

  28. I would love to be able to eat sweet potatoes…or any potatoes right now. Detoxing totally sucks but it’s my only hope for an eczema free life! I hope it works. In the meantime I am loving your pictures!

  37. Homemade cinnamon-toffee almond butter?!?! Ohmygosh sounds like the BEST thing EVER!! Seriously, I’m drooling over here! 😛

    Confession: Usually when recipes say “serves 1” I double eat because I eat for two 🙂

  38. Score on the shoes! I am also a Huge mango fan. I always buy them hard but I dont give them anytime to ripen. sigh

  39. Oh my goodness I love mangos so much too!! Those shoes are super cute! YAY for cheaper Greek yogurt!!
