It Helps To Have Thirsty Friends

I’ve gotta say, I really liked reading all of the words and phrases from this morning that drive you guys nuts. I’m in agreement with quite a few of you on some of ’em, including (and also adding):

  • “om nom nom”
  • “cray cray”
  •  moist (yup, sorry Jordan, I’m one of them!)
  • “sorry I’m not sorry” (Alyssa, I feel ya on this one – I loved the phrase, but it just got wayyyy overused)

Too funny!


Thankfully, I got my act together this morning and found some time to add veggies back into my life. After yesterday’s carb-tastic lunch and dinner, followed by this morning’s breakfast, some veggies were definitely necessary…and boy were they yummy today!


Remember when I was on a bit of a crabmeat kick a couple months ago? Well my friends, it’s back, and it’s just as delicious as I remembered. This salad may have been a bit random on the combos, but I loved every bite of it.

  • romaine
  • cukes
  • grape tomatoes
  • baby carrots
  • roasted broccoli and cauliflower
  • sweet pickle relish
  • The Laughing Cow Light Swiss Cheese wedge
  • ~1 serving (1/2 cup) crabmeat


I warned you it was random, but it was super tasty!


On the side, I also packed up another golden delicious apple and a chocolate chip brownie Larabar.


In addition to that, guess what else I’ll be sipping on this afternoon?


Oh yes, that would be a Starbucks Caramel Brulée Latte, but I will be attempting to make mine a teensy-weensy bit healthier by going with non-fat milk and no whip (which saves 150 calories and 15g of fat)

**FYI: From now until November 20th, from 2-5pm, Starbucks is offering BOGO holiday drinks, so take advantage if you can!

I’ll tell ya…it definitely helps to have thirsty friends around! 😉

Questions for the Afternoon:

What’s the most random salad combination you’ve ever tried?

Do you find you’re more tempted to buy something (such as a Starbucks beverage) when there’s a deal involved?

    Heck yes, I’m a sucker for a good deal. Especially if it involves something like coffee or froyo. Sign me up! I always make random salad combos. I usually just throw everything into a huge bowl, mix it together, and call it a day. I always add fruit!

  2. says

    I HATE when others use the phrase ‘cray cray’. I wonder who came up with that.

    I can’t answer your first question because I’m not a big salad eater. For your second question, I think I’m more tempted to get something that I like when it’s on sale- for instance, a pack of double dutch muffins at PC are 2 for $3, I’m so there!

    Hi, I am one of Julie’s friends from college, I stumbled onto your blog via PBF. You and your hubby are adorbs! If you like the crab you should try “lobster chunks” they are even yummier :) They are made by the same company I believe.
