I am constantly eating...

I am so serious- I can't stop eating! I eat all day.

I should have been a cow so I could just graze... all day... every day... because if I'm not eating I am chugging water to trick myself into thinking I don't need to eat. Maybe this is why I like cows so much.

So what's the deal? Is it just me? I try to do a good job of snacking smart. And for the most part I do. Here are some staples:
- Goldfish crackers (whole grain). I love these!!
- Raisins (I have recently rediscovered my love of raisins)
- Apples
- Grapes
- Pretzels
- Greek yogurt with granola
- Peanut butter and crackers
- Hummus with carrots and celery
- Almonds
- Light cheese sticks
- Luna bars (they taste like candy bars, I swear)
- Granola bars
- A crap-ton of water

I rarely eat an actual lunch, I snack at 10, Noon, 2 and 3 or 4 instead. But I almost always eat dinner.

What's the scoop, friends? Do you snack constantly like me? What are your snacking faves- I need variety!


  1. I snack, but I eat 3 meals! For snacks I have apples with peanut butter, rice cakes with peanut butter, almonds, greek yogurt with pomegranites or blueberries and pop chips!

  2. i am SO with you!! i snack constantly, and i love whole wheat goldfish too - i could prob eat the entire bag in one sitting :)
    a few of my faves:
    vitamin water
    think thin bars
    pb and apples or bananans
    pretzel thins
    cheese sticks wrapped in deli turkey or ham

    xoxo happy vday!!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
