What’s Up World?


May 19, 2011

Is everyone else already tired of hearing all the endless reports about Arnold and his love child? Gross–I never liked him as an actor, I never understood his appeal to lead California as governor, and this new escapade with his affair just made him an official idiot in my book…oh Maria Shriver, you are ONE classy lady! Stay strong and do that Kennedy family name proud.
Do you ever get to a point where you’re only eating certain foods? I am not on a diet by any means, though I am trying to eat well right now before the wedding, but everytime I leave the grocery store it seems I am stocking up on these random, but essential items:
Fiber One Honey Clusters Cereal–not sure I could live without this
Fresh Mangoes
Quaker Mini Caramel Rice Cakes
Green Grapes {and even better when you freeze them}
Whole Grain Flatbreads
Jello Temptations
{hey a girl needs dessert once in awhile!}
And speaking of food, I am getting together for dinner with this pretty lady tonight!! I cannot wait to reunite with my Jenna for some fun and girl talk…baby Ian will be making his debut in a few weeks and she is ready to meet her bundle ASAP. We’re going to try out the new Noodles and Company in Green Hills and this has our names written all over it.
Also on my radar tonight is catching up with crazy Meredith Grey on TV and another installment of the Real Housewives of NY…I swear I can’t seem to get enough of Bravo shows lately. All these housewives–NY, OC, and NJ as well as Rosie Pope with the lunatic pregnant ladies…I’m hooked I tell you. And please tell me you watch Andy Cohen’s aftershow–I LOVE him!

Alright, enough of the procrastination this morning…back to the daily grind of corporate America and dreaming of the upcoming weekend!

    Hey! I am your newest follower! I am in Nashville all the time. Do you have any places that you recommend for cute dresses?

    I am one of those people who voted Arnold into office. He had a great campaign and stood for a lot of the things I did. He was a moderate Republican, much like myself. Many people were skeptical of Ronald Reagan because he too was an actor, but look at the greatness he contributed to our country. So I gave Arnold a shot. Once in office, he let his wife take the reigns and he ran our state in a very liberal way (my opinion). Our debt is out of control and I'm dissappointed in what he claimed to be is not who he really is… much like his personal life. Hmmm, such a poser and a creep! Wow — sorry for the rant 🙂 Anyhow, love me some Rosie Pope. My husband's pretty damn obsessed with Noodles & Co – enjoy!!

  3. JLN says:

    I feel the same way about THE ARNOLD…ick! I never understood anyone's fascination with him…especially his beautiful wife!

    I always hear about people freezing grapes…are they really that good? Do you just eat them as a snack? I have to try this…I love all of your health/fitness tips!

  4. Jocelyn says:

    OOH, let me know how Noodles & Co is! I've been wanting to try it!!

  5. Caroline says:

    I do not understand Arnold. Love Maria!!! 🙂 And maybe I should try that cereal. None of my cereals are tasting too good these days.

  6. JRuud says:

    So sick of hearing famous people's problems. We have enough in our life. They are just ridiculous. Mmm those snacks look yummy. xo.

  7. Chrysta says:

    You will LOVE Noodles and Company! I didn't realize Nashville was getting one. Every time I go home and visit my family I go there to eat. Everything I've tried has been good. Enjoy it!

  8. I never understood what Maria saw in him. She is such a smart, classy lady….I hope she runs far away from him!!

  9. Beth McC. says:

    I would be 100% fine if I never heard the word LOVE CHILD ever again!!!!

  10. I too have a Bravo addiction. Thanks for the reminder of the jell-o pudding cups as a sweet treat. I need to pick some of those up. I can't get enough chocolate lately..

  11. RLW says:

    I have already been to that N&C twice! Guilty. It's so good. I always get the pesto pasta with shrimp! YUM

  12. Oh girlfriend you are hilarious! I got the Jello Strawberry Cheesecake ones and they tasted like mud. I threw them away 🙁 Bummer!

  13. Taylor B. says:

    Oh frozen green grapes! The perfect summer snack. Now I want some! And Arnold…yuck.

  14. I must live under a rock, but I didn't even know about Arnold's love child, ha! I'm obsessed with Noodle & Company and oh goodness..just finished watching Grey's– so much turmoil!

  15. Tiffany says:

    Ooo I've never tried frozen green grapes, but I'm totally hitting up the store tomorrow! 🙂


  16. CMae says:

    Classy till she made remarks on Oprah's grande finale. Lost cool points in my book for that. Kennedys are suppose to hold their heads high not stoop to the medias dirty bash the other person's level…. SIGH. Politics and movies starts should not mesh EVER lol

  17. Good for you girlie to be healthy and get fit the right way. You do look itty bitty by the way!!

  18. Jess says:

    I freeze grapes too! My roommate and fiance think I'm crazy, so when I saw that on your post, I thought, "FINALLY!" 🙂 Congrats on your upcoming wedding!


  19. Mrs. SE says:

    I'm totally obsessed with bravo too! You're going to love Noddles & Co. We ate there all the time in DC- it's fab!
