I bet you didn’t know…
I was kicked out of Girl Scouts (sort of).
When I was a Brownie, we took a field trip to go hiking and pick up trash at a big hill (Oak Hill) in our town. We made it to top, no problem, but before heading back down, one of our troop leaders told everyone to meet at the water tower, which was about halfway down the hill. A few of my friends and I apparently missed this important detail, so we never stopped at the water tower and went all the way to the bottom of the hill.
Needless to say, the troop leaders were not psyched and yelled at us. They told us that if we wanted to attend the “bridging ceremony” to become Girl Scouts, which was in a couple of weeks, we had to write a letter to apologize. At that point, I was kind of over Brownies/Girl Scouts, but my mom made me write the later anyway. I crossed the bridge and all that jazz, so I technically became a Girl Scout, but I never went to another meeting. I was so bad-ass.
I know almost every line to The Goonies.
My sister, cousins, and I used to watch The Goonies non-stop when we were kids– pretty much anytime we were together for years. We still recite lines from it nowadays. Best movie ever.
When I toss something into a trash can and miss, I have to keep trying until it goes in. I can’t just put the piece of trash in the can like a normal person.
I think people who litter were failed by their parents.
Ok, that statement is probably a bit harsh, but littering is one of my biggest pet peeves. It makes me so angry to see someone throw their trash on the ground or out the window of their car (ugggghhh). It’s incredibly lazy and inconsiderate to other people and, of course, Mother Nature. Don’t be a litterbug!
The words “cat nuggets” make me laugh uncontrollably.
I have no idea why I think “cat nuggets” is so funny. Just typing it now makes me smile. Mal can literally get me out of the worst mood by just saying these two words. I know, I’m a weirdo.
Yesterday morning started with fresh green juice with a sprinkle of ginger mixed in, which tasted amazing. Thanks for all of your suggestions about it. Ginger definitely adds a little something-something!
About an hour after drinking my juice, I whipped up breakfast, which was a plantain pancake with vanilla coconut cream on top and some sliced chicken sausage on the side. I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with coconut milk.
Health News & Views
My husband is generally a healthy eater, which is great for me because his habits are contagious. But I know if I ate the way he does all the time, I’d surely put on weight. For instance, if dinner is especially delicious, he’ll go back for a second or even third serving. There’s also times when he just craves greasy fast food. Of course, I’m not the food police–my husband is a grown man after all–so he can eat what he wants. But, with this in mind, I’ve discovered a number of strategies for sticking to my healthy habits when dining with my husband, so our marriage doesn’t make me pile on the pounds. And studies have shown that relationships can indeed affect your health, for example, by increasing the chance of weight gain.
