Coffee, anyone?

Thanks to Tigerlilly for posting about the ShareSenseo program, I entered and won a Senseo coffee machine. It came yesterday and it is sooo cool. You can brew 2 small cups of coffee at one time, or one big mug of coffee. I loves me some kitchen gadgets and this one is the best!! I’m seriously thinking of bringing it to work with me and putting it in my office. The coffee that the guys drink here is well, um, just downright NASTY! I usually fill my big OSU mug and bring coffee from home, but it always gets cold fast and there is no love in a cold cuppa coffee. I would post a picture of it, but I’m such a dork that I don’t know how to post pictures on my blog, so I’ll just link to it. Did I mention that the process is really fast? I entered the contest on the 14th and got the machine on the 23, just over a week. How’s that for service??? Tres magnifique, no?

In other news, I have been watching my boss on his WeightWatchers quest and just as I suspected, he’s doing really great. He has lost 15 pounds in two weeks (dontcha hate guys for their uncanny ability to drop weight like a lead balloon?), and I catch myself thinking, “I wanna do that too!” But as I was lamenting my own lack of loss, I started thinking that I don’t have to BE on WW to eat the foods I was eating on while I was doing WW – I can eat that stuff anyway!! Foods that I genuinely liked and felt good eating like string cheese, yogurt, frozen fruit, different varieties of frozen vegetables, whole wheat crackers, Laughing Cow cheese and hummus, I can eat those anytime! So I went to my local WalMarts (the *s* added for all you hillbilly folk out there) and I loaded up on all the aforementioned foods plus a few additional items. It’s really hard to eat healthy when all you have in the kitchen is store brand cookies and macaroni and cheese, which is what my husband buys when he goes shopping, which is why I don’t let him do the grocery shopping very often. So I’m feeling better today food-wise and I’m betting I make better choices about what I put in my mouth.

In relation to food, I usually don’t buy things I love if no one else in the house likes them, because apparently I believe that I am unable to control myself when alone with a favorite food. That’s hogwash, I say!! In my quest to pamper myself a little more, I bought myself some guacamole last night. What’s the big deal about guacamole you ask? Well let me tell you…according to every member of my little family, guacamole looks like a “big green turd” (yes, that’s in quotes for a reason) and no one will even try it. So I never would buy it because no one else would eat it. Last night, that’s SPECIFICALLY the reason I bought it! Lots of guac all to myself!!! Mmmmm, Guacamole, with your avacodo-y goodness, I love you!! With chips and a margarita, what else does one need in the world? Well, I didn’t have the margarita (bummer), but I had an ample amount of chips and guac and I was giddy with pleasure. I could get used to this being-good-to-myself thing!!

  One thought on “Coffee, anyone?

    Look at all the good stuff you’ve got going on! Speaking of coffee, I ordered some Boca Java over the holidays, and it is absolutely the best tasting coffee ever. Their pitch about fresh roasting must be true, because the grocery store stuff does not compare. BUT, I cannot pay $20 a pound for coffee (when you add in shipping, that’s about what it comes out to–well, when you only buy one pound at a time it is). So, Boca Java is only for treat times and not a regular purchase, alas.

    Good for you for buying healthy foods. Hope you continue to feel better.

    mmmmm Ricardo’s margaritas. mmmmm.

    But enough about that, I am so thrilled about the news you received from your daughter’s doctor. Yippie!!!! I know that is a load off you and your husbands mind.

    Congratulations on the coffee maker. You are the second blog I have read today that won one.

    Too bad you can’t combine coffee AND margaritas – that would be heavenly!!

    My husband roasts his own coffee, he buys the green beans online. It has completely spoiled us to the point that I can’t buy a cup when I’m out and about, cause it just tastes burnt.

    I’m glad your daughter’s okay… so I’m off to the Walmarts… you crack me up!

    YEAH!!! I’m so glad you won a coffee maker!! I got one too.. I should be getting it next week sometime. Coffee is my ‘treat’. Instead of eating a snack between lunch and dinner I treat myself to a cup of coffee. I know, weird right? Oh well.

    OH… I didnt believe it either, but yes, there comes a day when diapers are no longer stuffed in your purse, car and bathroom drawer!! I cant believe my day has come!! Yeah!!!
