Dunkin Donuts Girls
I usually HATE the workers at DD. They are rude, screw up my order, etc. The two new chicks at my local DD are adorable, friendly and always get it right. Way to go DD!


I WISH that I could afford to dress like an Anthropologie model. It's my new favorite store.

Menu Planning

I work until 4, drive to the gym and don't get home until 5:30 most days. Menu planning rocks my socks. I'm planning our meals 3 weeks in advance which makes my shopping list easier to compile and it takes the guess work out of what are we having tonight. Menu planning is a serious time saver.

Eating at the kitchen table

I started a new rule for September. Every time my husband catches me eating in the living room (ahem, where the TV is) I have to pay him 5 dollars. This means less mindless snacking for me and more meaningful conversation with my husband. We were watching TV with every meal. Now, I'm enjoying talking to one another. Despite living together- we weren't talking about the random minutia of the day because we were busy pigging out in front of the TV. I've learned that my husband is way funnier than most TV shows.


Enough said!


Only 60 calories and an ice cream treat. What is not to love?

I have so much fun during kickball seasons. We may not rule, but I can't wait to see my friends every Thursday evening.

Skinny Girl Margaritas
I love margaritas but I can only handle one because they are sickeningly sweet. The skinny girl margaritas are low in cals and low in sugar. I love them. In fact, I just had one last night.

Fall TV
I can't wait for the return of Survivor. Holler.

More specifically, watermelon with purple grapes. My personal snack heaven.

South Beach Bars
I'm sure that the nougat on top is full of chemicals but I don't care. The smores and chocolate flavor make the perfect "on the go" breakfast.

Menu planning (especially cobb salads, which I think we've eaten 3 times in the last 2 weeks) rocks my socks, too.
Also, I just had my first Skinny Girl Margarita and was pleasantly surprised it didn't taste all watery and weak. Delish!

I want to try a Skinnygirl Margarita!

I menu plan sometimes and I really like it. Makes life a lot easier!

We eat at the table, but the TV is on and we wind up watching it instead of talking to each other. My husband even turns his chair away from the table to watch the TV sometimes! I think the TV needs to be off during dinner from now on...

Your kitties are adorable.

Wish I had your motivation to plan out my weekly menus...someday!

And yay for football...except - Go Broncos!

And I can't wait for Fall TV. This Wiped Out and Minute to Win It nights are awful!

I'm so jealous of your menu planning! I wish I was that organized with it....what a time saver!

I can't wait for fall weather and fall television. We're college fans around here. Our team kicked butt today. (Florida State) I love Dunkin Donuts coffee. I don't have one close to my house, but my dear husband picks it up on his way home from work sometimes.

Great list! I find that not only does menu planning save time but it big time saves money. On weeks when I don't plan I find myself at the market 3 times to pick up last minute things and leave with three bags of stuff I find.
