Wow, long time, no Six Pack Sunday. Let’s get right into it.
1. More like No-Tein
Once, long ago, I got a coupon for some free Sambazon product. It wasn’t until much later that I remembered said coupon.
This protein “Superfood Smoothie” was narsty. It was chalky, very low in flavor, and made me just wish I made my own smoothie.
The stats weren’t even that impressive, and and after finishing almost half, I tossed the rest. I hate to waste, but I hate to drink gross things more.
2. It’s Britney, Bitch.
Years ago, I borrowed this little gem from Shaina, one of my best friends from high school. And now, when I’m feeling particularly badass, I’ll wear it to the gym. And then, I just assume that I look as good as Brit, back in her glory days.
Bonus, if I ever slip and fall, I’ve got the best catchphrase around.
“Oops, I did it again!”
3. Heroes with the Half Pint
Know what’s an excellent option at bars?
Spanky’s in Chapel Hill had a cellar clearing event with so many different NC beers, I would’ve been wasted had I not stuck to half-pints. It’s a great way to try several beer options without getting more buzzed than you’d like to.
Hear that, restaurants?! OFFER MORE HALF PINTS!
4. All Bathrobes, All the Time
If you ever wonder what I do the moment I get home from the gym (I know that’s all you’re thinking about), here’s the answer: change into a bathrobe.
And if you’re wondering how I sleep, it’s in a Slanket.
(The ORIGINAL blanket with sleeves, this fleece dream-come-true was an ACTUAL dream come true for me. I woke up in the middle of the night, arms freezing, and texted Ryan a very simple message. “Sleeves on a blanket. Keeps your arms warm. blanket sleeves.” After a careful search online, I realized this was a reality, and immediately ordered one.)
Anyway, as many folks already know, these sleeved blankets are really just bathrobes backwards. And, I realized the other day that, after I take off the bathrobe I wear around my cold apartment to get into bed, I’m really just putting on another bathrobe.
This is my life.
5. Romance Corner
In two weeks, I’ll be celebrating four years with my boyfriend, Ryan. And guess what we’re doing to celebrate?!
Although I don’t know if I could afford to STAY at the King’s Daughter Inn in Durham, for $30, we can pretend for a few hours that we’re as fancy shmancy as the other patrons while sipping 5 different sparkling wines and food pairings!
I love bubbly.
I love Ryan.
Can’t beat it.
6. Say No to Say Yes to the Dress Marathons
Because I certainly can’t.
So many tears, so many emotions.
I can’t pull myself away.

I still watch Say Yes to the Dress even though I said yes to my own dress over 4 years ago 🙂
A woman after my own heart. I tried to get my mother into it, and she’ll oblige my wishes for girl time watching it now and then…. but not without a round of questions like “Why are we even WATCHING these women, Jordan?!”
Ha! My boyfriend of 4 years has a Slanket.
I love half pints. I’m a light weight and like sampling beers instead of committing to a big glass!
He sounds like a keeper. Hold onto that one, Lisa.
1/2 pints are the best idea ever! And they’re good for the restaurants too because I always end up getting more than I would if were just buying a full pint. Win and win.
Have to say, love your wit. I purposefully wait to read your blog til the morning when I wake up cuz it pretty much guarantees that my day will start off with a huge smile! Have a great day 😀 And congrats on 4 years together!
Ah, Jenny!! Thank you so much. Now you’ve got me left with a huge smile!! Consider my heart bursting with pride, seriously.
Im jealous of your Britney tshirt! And I also can’t resist a “say yes to the dress marathon”! Tho I had high hope for the bridesmaids spin off but it’s just not the same!
Seconded. ALAS, no one cries when their mother isn’t there to help them shop for their Bridesmaid dress.
Rats. I’m trying to get more tears on Primetime!
