im home alone on a friday night because hubby went on a photo shoot with the boys.
what to do, what to do…
after i finished reading my favorite blogs, im feeling a bit sleepy and bored … and i find myself reaching for the tub of worms beside my laptop
i grew up familiar with a white van passing our strasse 2-3 times a week playing happy music luring children out of their homes like the pied piper, to buy gummibarchen. i was never a big fan of the original gummibar and would be content with indulging once in a while in these rubbery sweets.
it was a couple of months ago when i suddenly had a craving for sour gummies that i visited the candy aisle in the grocery, an aisle ive been trying to stay away from for a while now. dismayed that there were no sour gummi bears on stock, i settled for the sour worms by trolli instead. i just bought a little packet, thankful when i tasted the gummies because i knew i would not have been able to stop myself from finishing the whole pack if i had bought a large one.
but because hubby loves to indulge me in my cravings, he went to the grocery last week and surprised me with a tub of sour gummi worms!
my favorite would have to be the red and yellow worms because they are the most sour of the batch. i can feel my salivary glands working as i write this blog!
these orange and green ones are for those who like their gummies on the sweeter side
and these red and blue ones, hold on let me see *chomp-chomp-chomp* i cant seem to describe it *chomp-chomp-chomp* ….. let me taste another one *chomp-chomp* … how can i describe them… well, hmmm, they’re … more neutral (for lack of a better description!)
ok, id better put these wigglies away before i finish them off! goodness! i can already see the bottom of the tub!
the last two days have been ultra hot! after i thought that the heat wave had come and gone a couple of months ago, yesterday happened…36 degrees! just standing still made beads of sweat form on my forehead arrghh!
what better way to cool off on a sizzling day but to grab a frozen yogurt cooler!
ive always loved yogurt in its traditional form (plain, in a tub, and cooled in the fridge) and when frozen yogurt became a popular dessert, i followed the hype to my delight!
Red Mango is one of the last frozen yogurt brands i haven’t tested and the heat which began last Sunday propelled us to the Red Mango store in Eastwood Mall that day.
despite the lure of all the yummy looking toppings, i ordered a plain jane, the green tea yogurt smoothie. i liked the organic taste but hubby gave his official statement “lasang dahon!” (it tastes like leaves). but dont be fooled by the anti-veggie’s verdict. its gooood and cold, enough to give me a brain freeze!
…obviously, it was too good to wait for a photo shoot!
Last weekend one of lima’s tires got busted (a horrible experience) and because hubby felt sorry for me… he got me new rims!
ok, the “felt sorry” part is kind of going overboard, but yes, we did get these gold SSR for me
this is how lima’s tires looked initially
and this is my personal tire changer (AKA hubby) installing the new rims with his pneumatic impact gun and wearing his official uniform hehehe!
and so i went to work this morning with lima wearing her new shoes yay! *wootwoot*
and just as i thought that was the highlight of my day, when i got home, i found more goodies!!! hubby had for me a little package ive been waiting for, maybe for 3 weeks now!!
*hopping up and down*
i could not open it until after dinner, i just wanted to savor the unopened envelope! hehehe! im such a masochist!
finally after dinner, i ripped open the package
hmmm…i wonder if ill ever really wear this or just keep it as a collection?!?… i loooovvveee it!
now, who ever said mondays are always manic, could be right… as i am happily manic today!
Did you get to watch the AI finale?!
hubby and i have never really been fans of AI. hubby cringes when he sees people making a fool of themselves and the AI audition is no exception. however i did get hooked during the time of the top 7 of AI 2009 and ive been routing for Kris Allen ever since. i thought Adam was just too … well, i wasnt really into his style.
i got up this morning almost missing the finale, relived that they were still performing when i turned the tube on. i caught the performance of Adam with KISS which was cool! hubby and i love Gene Simmons because of the reality show. he’s so down to earth without the make up and acts like the average dad. he’s so funny!
…anyway, back to the AI finale, i thought Adam’s performance was really good. he was hitting even the lower notes and less of the shrieking. and so when the two finalist stood there, i had no doubt Adam was going to win. Looking at Kris, i kind of thought he looked resolved to walk away second place as well. when they announced the winner, i was more than thrilled, jumping up and down like a happy kid. hahaha! im sure hubby would have given me the wierd look if he was here!
What a surprise!!! Life can really turn up the most interesting results!
What did you think of the American Idol 2009 results?
