Current Obsessions

I recently discovered Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookie and I am obsessed with their food. Their products do not have artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols, and some are vegan. They also have a hefty amount of protein and a reasonable amount of sugar. In addition to their complete cookies, they have these new crispy cookies that make me swoon and their brownies are divine. I haven’t bought a protein bar in months.

This is Us is back on and I actually watch it live when I’m home. I’ve even been known to tweet about it on commercials. I even posted a pic on Instagram of my cats napping on the sofa with me while I was watching it. I love this show so much.


I started doing Pilates this summer and I’m still doing it. I do not like to exercise and yet I look to this and it’s exercise. I admit I thought it would be easier. I see pictures of people laying down on the reformer and I thought, how hard is it? I’m happy to say that I’m getting stronger and more fit. I’m hooked.

I recently started uploading products to zazzle. I’ve been purchasing some of my items and so far I am really pleased with the quality. Sometimes I spend hours on a design I end up not even using, so it’s coming along slowly. It’s fun and I completely lose track of time. I’ve sprinkled in a few pictures from two of my collections, Peace Love Cats and Colorful Paw Prints.

No obsession list is ever complete without my cats. I love them so much.

My love affair with Brussels sprouts

I crazy love Brussels sprouts. Now.

I thought I didn’t like them. I don’t remember if I tried them and didn’t like them, confused them with something else I didn’t like, or decided as a child I wouldn’t like them and the thought turned into a fact. It’s possible I made an uninformed decision to not like them.

I recently had some and after the first one I was blown away. I love vegetables and wondered how I managed to go this long believing I didn’t like them. I still have a lot to learn about myself.

As with any new love, I’ve been binge eating them. I’m making a decision to back off a little, rather than eat them to death. I tend towards food ruts, so I’m mixing it up and adding them into the rotation.

I’m in this relationship for the long run.
