Happy Valentines Day


Happy Valentines Day you love birds!

eos goodiesHope you all are sharing the love today. I certainly did with eos lip balms. On Tuesday a nice parcel of goodies were delivered to me, and I handed them out to three lucky gals. 

julie-with-eos-lipbalmJulie picked out the Pomegranate Raspberry.  It’s her first time ever using anything by eos. She loved it

eos strawberry sorbetAmy tweeted that she received her eos Strawberry Sorbet in the courier that I sent to her!

Then I gave my boss the purple cutie, which was Passion Fruit.

eos-hand-lotionWhat I did keep for myself is the slim shaped hand lotion in Berry Blossom and the tropical tree growing kit. Let’s cross our fingers in hopes that I can keep this thing alive. No one gives me plants anymore, nor do I have any living one’s at home/work due to the fact that within the month, it’s dead. Please don’t ask me how I kill plants that quick, but it happens.

I’ve had two gorgeous bonsai trees within the past few years and both of them didn’t last 6 months. I LOVE the look of them, which is why I got a second one. I’m actually thinking of picking up one for work. Maybe the window wasn’t good for it, at home? I have a nice toasty warm office sans window at work, so perhaps it would thrive there. I’m keeping this tropical growing kit (supposedly pomegranate!?!) at work. I’ll let you know how things go :)

Are you all doing something special with your significant others, or friends? The Boyf and I have a tradition of going to McDonald’s on Valentines Day. No joke. It became a thing with us when we started dating. I lived in Newfoundland and he moved to Ontario shortly after.  I flew up a few times throughout the year and one time when I was flying home it happened to be on Valentines Day. The date had slipped our minds and while driving to the airport we were both starving, and popped into McDonalds to grab a tasty feast.

Ever since our first Valentines Day together, we’ve been keeping up the tradition. Except for last year. I think we broke it since we ate somewhere else. But still. I definitely want to eat supper there tonight! I love McDonalds.

I eat McDonalds and STILL stay fit…

FAQ’s answered!

Candi asks: How do you balance eating McDonald’s and staying fit? hahaha every girl needs to know this.

McDonaldsA trip to McDonalds last Sunday night. The meal isn’t all mine. I had the little burger, and the fries.

My answer:
I’m actually a pretty picky eater at McDonalds. My orders aren’t as high calorie as some of the items on the menu. For instance, the only things I like to eat there is:

  • Plain double cheeseburger without the extra patty (not the sesame seed bun one’s – but the flat almost squished looking buns)
  • 6 piece Chicken nuggets
  • French fries!!!

Occasionally I’ll grab a snack wrap, or a jr chicken. But that’s about it. Drinks on the other hand – omg my mouth is watering just thinking about it:

  • Chocolate milk shake
  • Root Beer
  • Vanilla sundae with caramel sauce and nuts

Plus. I don’t have McDonalds as often as I would like. If I notice that I’m getting a little more chub around my waist, I take a step back in eating and start bringing my lunches with me at work. lol. That’s the lamest answer ever. But it’s true!

We never eat out for supper (it’s seriously a rare treat that we do go out for supper). So it’s only lunch time’s that I eat “bad” and even then, it’s infrequent. I’m also naturally a thin person. I have my Father’s build (long and lean) and really love to stay active and fit, so I suppose that definitely helps.

My honest answer. As always. Not as technical as I’m sure as most would like, but hey. It’s what you get over here.
