1. Frozen yogurt cones that cost $1. Yes please! (P.S. Hubby really loves taking pictures of me at the exit of Ikea posing with frozen yogurt and totally doesn't get embarrassed AT ALL. )
2. Amazing veggie wraps so that I can eat to pretend to be healthy, and then eat with a side of cornbread that is 0% bread, and 100% cake.
3. Hubby gets a ginormous plate of pasta, meatballs, garlic bread and salad for less than $5.
Of course, it can't all be awesome. The cons:
1. One of those previously mentioned foods made me SICK. Like, race to the bathroom while I was standing in line sick. Gross.
2. I do not appreciate going to the returns section, then upstairs to kitchens, then back down to refunds...they should just trust me and hand over the cash. I look so innocent, c'mon!
3. Stuff at Ikea costs money. It is just rude to tempt me with amazing looking rooms and creative furniture and then force me to stick to a budget.
Anyway, minus being sick and sitting in the car for three hours, it was a success.
Bad news on the house-building front...we thought we were clear and ready to move in, but the house inspector told us one or two things that need to be done first. BOOOO! I am just ready to move in, especially after yesterday's trip where we bought all the kitchen supplies. Cross your fingers that it can happen soon, please!
I read an article yesterday about "food compensation"...as in, eating low-calorie (healthy) meals to allow for treats-candy, wine, etc. Do you think you do this?
Um, yes. I know it's not the best, but I love a lot of healthy foods, and also lots of sweet treats. So it makes sense in my head to have a little of both!
What do you do when you're dealing with a big disappointment?
Right now I feel so let down...I really thought today would be move in day and I'm so bummed. I've already broken into my sugar stash but I hope some exercise will help me feel a little more upbeat too. All else fails, bad reality TV should work!
