Your Fro-Yo is Showing

Yesterday I went to the mall with my friend R.

I will be heading off to San Francisco in early June and own exactly one sweater. Which will simply NOT due for 10 days. I thought I would see what I could find on the sale racks and off we went.

While shopping she asked me if I wanted to get some Frozen Yogurt. I am not really a fan of ice cream but I will get down on some fro-yo every now and again.

Not to be confused with FRO-NO!!

I haven't actually been to any frozen yogurt places in like 10 years so imagine my child-like enthusiasm when I saw all of this!!

So. Many. Options.

So. Many. Toppings.

Seriously? Seriously?
What have I been missing, you guys???? Are Z and I the only ones that haven't gotten the Fro-Yo Memo??


So I was a little overwhelmed but decided on Coconut Yogurt and went from there.

I was severely overwhelmed by the topping choices and R is a purest and chooses to eat her frozen yogurt plain.

I know, right?
So she was no help. (But I still luv her!) I chose graham cracker crust sprinkles and a hit of mini chocolate chips. 

Nothing too crazy.

But then I began thinking about all the options one could pile on top. Let's be real - the bowls they give you are huge and you know some people load that shit up!

I had this urge to stand at the cash register and take a bite of everyones dishes as they were paying.

But I'm not a fan of a thousand flavors at one time - so I would have to pass on every taste-test with the teenagers.


Double Yuck.

I think one's fro-yo says a lot about someone.

I would NEVER put candy and fruit together! Nor would I put anything gummy in there because it gets all cold and sticks to your teeth.

Z would probably put mostly all fruit in his  - pineapple, lychee and kiwis or some other combo and then put a sprinkling of gummy bears on top.  Blah.

I think my mom would just get a chocolate almond mocha frozen yogurt and sprinkle oreo on top. She's like me - a little crazy but not too crazy.

My G-ma would probably be like the above pictures - she'd be all in!! Cause she all sortsa cray cray! Just like my BFF! Al would put mini M &Ms, gummy bears, little pieces of cake and top that shit off with some sprinkles - which is why I love both of them so.

They should make fortune cookie sayings for frozen yogurt cups.

No toppings: You are a purest and have great self-control. Maybe you should loosen up, get a little crazy and throw some chocolate sauce on that bitch.
Some toppings: You know what you like and are very reliable. Maybe you should stop being a control-freak and think outside the box.
Most or All the toppings: You live life like it's your last day. Maybe you should grow up and not eat all that nasty shit in one sitting.

I'm totally kidding.  I LOVE my man and R and my G-ma and my BFF and DO NOT judge them on how they eat their Frozen Yogurt. 

Nor would I with you guys.

So I want to know your favorite combos. Cause I'm the "Some Toppings" and need to "Think Outside the Box". ;)  

Care to Share??

I's an Add-ult.

So there has been a lot of things happening lately.

A lot of things that have me feeling like an adult.

Yes - I know I am technically an adult but because we don't have kids (the thought still makes me wince a little) nor do we own a home (yeah - because house prices in Hawaii are Super De-Duper Affordable right now, er ever, er never) then there really are few things that make me feel like a real-life adult.

Like being married should make me feel like an adult but I've been with Z for almost 10 years - I can't even remember what it was like to not be half of our whole.

So marriage doesn't really count.

I do drive a nice-ish car. But it's not paid for by any means.

Ax that too.

I do love a glass of wine on a pretty regular basis.

True Dat.
This clearly makes me an adult.

Also I recently purchased these: they all scream ADULT! ADULT! YOU'RE OFFICIALLY AN ADULT! to me.

Le Creuset Lovin'!

I've wanted me some Le Creuset for a long time now. I would look at the Williams Sonoma catalog like a porn addict looks at Penthouse - dreaming to caress one of these babies, to get her all hot and eat from her...(Wait - too much? Sorry.)

Anyways, I got an email from my friends at Williams Sonoma about a Mother's Day Special where she was 40% off plus free shipping and I treated me to one - I figured I was a mom to Boyfriend and that counts, no? She's so pretty that I have been keeping her on the counter because I can't bare the thought of her in our danky cupboards with the rest of our riff raft pots and pans, not to mention cockroaches and spiders. No way -  not my precious girl!

My friend named her Le Creuset - I think we should name ours too. Maybe Precious. 

Or maybe not.

I've also purchased these items.

Real Leather, ya'll!!

Yes - this is my first REAL adult leather purse that I paid some bucks for. I'm not a Coach or Louis Vuitton kinda gal - but I feel like a grown-up with this purse. And the wallet. I usually just carry a fabric clutch with my ID and Debit Card thrown in (or better yet when I was in college and smoked cigarettes (ewe!) i used to just put my ID and cash in the cellophane wrapping of the cigi box - man I was classy!) but as I'm getting older I have business cards and Z's business cards and stamp cards and whatever that I need handy. Isn't this a sure sign of adult hood, you guys?

Which leads me to the ULTIMATE in adult-hood purchases........the mama jamma..... the creme de la creme.....nothing screams adult like this!!!

Ta Da!!
My very own laptop...... FOR WORK!!!! That's the adult part - that last part - FOR WORK!!!! I am now social-media-coordinating for 3 local businesses and it was a pain having my work photos in with our regular photos. Plus everyone always goes on and on about how great it is to work from home - and IT IS BUT it's also great to work from a coffee shop or outside (Which is where I am right now, in a bikini, getting my tan & blog on!) without those dirty dishes and laundry and un-walked Boyfriends staring at you in the face!

Plus - I will be off-island for 6 weeks (more on that later) so this way I can still work.....like a Grown-Up.....whilst away from home!!
