These are a few of my favorite things...

Am I the only adult that still does this? For breakfast one of my favorite things to eat is a bowl of Rice Krispies or Kix cereal (or something that's just plain.) Then I scoop up about 3-5 large spoonfuls of sugar and load it on top. The best part is to mix it up so a bunch lays on the bottom of the bowl, then you save it until all the cereal is gone...then scoop up the leftover sugar and enjoy it's yumminess! Not the healthiest choice, I know, but dang good!

+ = GOOD

I guess you could say that my mom wasn't very strict when it came to what we ate. For example... my brother Taylor. He was THE WORST sleeper of all time. When he was little the only way he'd stay in his crib was if he had a Pop Tart in his hand. Always a Cinnamon Pop Tart. Those things will forever make me think of my brother. Anyway, my mom would give in because hello...she had a 15 month old toddler that refused to sleep along with a 2 month old baby to take care of. I'd give in too! So a couple years later came a trip to the dentist that ended with another appointment for a ROOT CANAL...for a 3 YEAR OLD. Lesson to this story, don't let your kids have pop tarts in their cribs.

But for me, I'll keep my ways until my metabolism gives in and the foods I eat begin to take their toll.

That will be a sad day.

For me that day has come. I learned my lesson when I gained 57 pounds with Ayda. Yes, 57. No more sugar for me. I guess that means I'm sweet enough? Or it just means that I'm pushing 30 and it's time to put the toaster strudel down. Shawna, for you I hope the day never comes. And I wish you sprinkled goodness on your cereal every morning and the hips of a nineteen-year-old for as long as you want.

I definitely love eating cheerios that way, although I haven't done that for years. But the sugar at the bottom is the best!!! I'm jealous of your metabolism too. Oh, by the way, I am having a shabby apple party (they are dresses) on November 6th at 7pm at my house and I would love you to come. But don't feel pressured, I don't get anything if I sell a certain amount, I am just doing it. Let me know if you are interested.

If that day hasn't come yet, it probably won't you skinny little thing. I'm super jealous at this particular moment when I am gaining a pound per week. I am jolly fat preggy.
