Eye Candy

by Courtney on May 3, 2011

My little guy has been glued to the window today.

He’s only come around to play fetch once so far…so not like him. Must be some good eye candy out there? Winking smile

Speaking of eye candy…and cheesy transitions…check out this salad.

Today’s lunch consisted of a big ‘ol salad, complete with romaine, spinach, cukes, baby carrots, red onion, some leftover roasted veggies, croutons, a scoop of 1% cottage cheese, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette.

Lunch ALSO included a little somethin’-somethin’ on the side…

I told you I was gonna do some baking, didn’t I? Winking smile

Think banana muffin meets oatmeal raisin cookie…recipe to come!

I’m already considering going back for a second muffin…I mean, they are healthified and all.

Not to mention delicious.

Question for the Afternoon:

What (or who) is YOUR eye candy? Smile

If we’re talkin’ men (besides my seksi hubby of course) one of my favorite eye candies is Paul Walker (who I MAY just be going to see tonight in Fast Five). Woooop!

My food eye candy would consist of a big beautiful salad like yours, a big chunk of bread, or a big bowl of froyo! Man Candy is as silly as it sounds is Zac Efron.

Paul Walker = complete eye candy. My current eye candy is still (yes, still) Pippa’s dress. It’s mind blowing. And I’m a bit of a nerd…but at least it’s legit. I am trying to find my own wedding dress.

Idk if you’ve seen Thor yet, but Chris Hemsworth is definitely eye candy…

But Cody’s a cutie too :D

I love the granola-y texture on your muffin tops!

Oh dear: Paul Walker. Not the best actor but boy is he a looker! Guess what? I once saw him at the Chilis in Chicago’s O’hare airport. This beautiful guy walked in…he looked familiar. I quickly googled Paul Walker (to confirm) and yep, it was him. Better looking in person :-) I was a bit tipsy as I hate to fly, but unfortunately the liquid courage still wasn’t enough to make me go talk to him. Mission FAIL.

I am one of the rare people that totally finds a delicious salad, like the one above, to be a bit of eye candy. What can I say? Nothing gets me going like a fresh salad.

Now onto real eye candy – Well, I’m always checking men out at the gym…but I pretend that I don’t. As for celebrity eye candy, Chace Crawford has always been top of my life. But after getting a glimpse of Robert Pattinson in real life a few weeks ago, I kind of see the appeal…

Seriously, that is my kind of salad. Dang it, you just need to move to Utah and we can eat huge salads together and you can teach me how to make your amazing cupcakes. Eye candy= Ryan Reynolds:)
