Nothin’ but the truth

11 Nov

I really, truly, despise layers.  Maybe it’s because my body temperature is about 11 degrees higher than the average human.   But coats, sweaters, hoodies, and all other winter garb send me into a panicky sweat at the thought of donning them.

I’m addicted to hummus.  You see, I’m allergic to all things dairy, and hummus is quite possibly the world’s best cheese replacement.  Skeptical?  Eat it with eggs.  Mix it into rice and/or pasta.  Put it on a spoon.  I don’t even miss dairy…but I do want this, now.  For breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  And I’ll gladly reap the consequences of that terrible decision.

I’m happy being single.  How about we stop worrying about when we’re going to find Mr. Awesome, and start worrying about making our life and ourselves 110% awesome?  This is my mantra.

And finally.

I own 17 pairs of tights.  And counting.  Let’s get real!  Tights are like Spanx’ cuter, more attractive sister.  I tend to get mine on clearance from Kohl’s or TJ Maxx for mere pennies (Like $4).

What are you feeling honest about today?

      Wait, WHAT?! Tangy lemon hummus? I need this in my life, ASAP. Thank you for the sweet words. Sometimes I wonder if my accessories are too much, then I think “Um, who cares? I’m dressing for me.”

    My honest: I love hummus and I DO eat it every day. I do not hoard tights, and I love layers. I am horrible at starting a huge project, not finishing, starting another, not finishing, starting another…..and so on. I’m currently in the middle of 3. Thank god I finished a 4th this weekend. I’m a closet slob. Everything else looks fabulous – but never open the closet.

    That is all……….well…….maybe……

      Wait you are bad at starting things and not finishing them? I wouldn’t know what you mean. I don’t have half-made vision boards, half sewn clothing, or half written books. That would just be ABSURD. Oh, wait. Crap.

    I eat hummus EVERY DAY for lunch + a Honey Crisp (when I’m not traveling). LOVEIT. Someday if you come visit the fabulous Burg, I need a date to that new Zenblenderz. I can’t justify eating out by myself. 🙂

      Wait, apples with hummus? I’m intrigued.
