Obsessions...

This weekend I discovered something wonderful!!! What, do you ask, deserves three, count them, three exclamation points?

Of course it's food. What else would it be??

I'm not a huge ice cream girl, well, at least not at the grocery store. I rarely buy it. But this little beauty caught my eye and I knew it must be mine! And guess what?? It's only 100 calories per serving! Yep. 2 totally worth it points. Top it with some Lite Reddi Whip and you're good to go! It's like pumpkin pie yumminess without the crust.


I also spotted some Peppermint and other seasonal flavors that I cannot wait to try! Yum!


And on another note...my fabulous friend Sonja from For the Love of Stilettos presented me with this award the other day.



Her own blog is freaking fabulous (that's probably why she got the award to begin with!?!) so check it out if you haven't already.

The rules are to tell you 5 things I am completely obsessed with and nominate 5 of my fabulous favorite bloggers as well!

My current obsessions include (but are not limited to):
1. Candy corn--> Note I haven't had any yet this season, but my mind is constantly thinking about it. I especially love the pumpkins.


2. Sopranos-->I have been re-watching the whole series of the Sopranos and I am finally almost done! I think I only have 3 more DVD's left to get from Netflix. I seriously love this show. Sometimes it makes me want to be in the mob. Wouldn't it be awesome? I mean, think about the perks...and the money...and the family loyalty!?! So there may be a wee little violence involved, and being a female in the mob is probably not the safest position to hold, but hey, no job's perfect.



3. Glee-->Speaking of TV, Glee is definitely my new favorite show this season. I do find it a little hard to get used to when they burst into song during the middle of a scene, but I love it. The main guy kind of annoys me and doesn't really fit the whole quarterback stereotype they have given him, but I'll give him a pass. He's kinda cute...for a high schooler and all.

4. Cake!-->I have an order for a wedding cake that I am starting to work on this weekend and it is all I can think about. So.much.to.do!

5. Traveling-->This isn't something that I am just obsessed with right now but all of the time. I'm constantly looking for my next trip, to my husband's chagrin, and I am always planning things really far in advance in my head...like a trip to Texas, Paris, Israel, Rome, Greece, Las Vegas, Alaska...

See what I mean?

I will pass this award along to some of my very favorite bloggers. Girls who are so fabulous sometimes I cannot stand that I do not know them in real life....because we would for sure be the bestest of friends.

I'd never seen it before- and since I'm such a sucker for a) marketing and b) ice cream, I just couldnt pass it up!! Haha!

Pumpkin pie ice cream? I think so! I had a pumpkin pie cheesecake blizzard last week. OMG! Except I'm pretty sure it was NOT only two points.

Thanks for the award. Except I suck at reposting them so please don't hate me if I forget.
