the last word, v14

People Magazine has this feature thing on the last page of their magazine.  On the last page, they have a feature called the last word (so clever!) where a celebrity answers a few questions on some of the last things they've done.  So even though I'm not a celebrity or anything (wait. what?!), I'm going to go ahead and answer the questions.  Because, why not?

The last thing I borrowed was hm.  My mom's nail polish remover?  I can't even think of the last time I borrowed something other than that!  I guess I'm not much of a borrower.  I had black chippy nail polish on, and we were going to church...(I know!  Right?)  I was kind of feeling like maybe it wouldn't go over too well with the old ladies. 

The last book I read was well, I'm still reading it actually.  I just started Allegient, the third book of the Divergent trilogy.  I bought it the day it came out, but I let Megan read it first, because we were both reading the series so we could chat about it.  Then like, the next day, after obsessively reading it, she stamped down the stairs and threw the book and had a minor meltdown because she was so mad about the ending.  I did not let her tell me what happened, but I've avoided reading it all of this time because I don't want to be so upset! 

The last text I received was, "I'm not the one who grounded me!" from my son.  It was about him not having a ride somewhere, because I grounded him from his car for two weeks.  Which was very deserved.  That's all I will say about that.  For now.

The last girls night I had was actually last week, when I met up with a few girl friends from high school for drinks and apps at this place I'd never been to before.  It was SO good.  I had these batter fried green beans (good food choices, holla!) with a horseradish dipping sauce.  Mmmmm.  My mouth just watered even.  It was nice to have a few hours to yap and laugh though, and one of the girls I literally haven't seen in person since like the last days of 11th grade.  That's a damn long time.  And she sort of looks like she hasn't aged.  Day-um.  It was also pretty nice to eat those deep fried beans beans from heaven. 

The last sunburn I had was like, two days ago.  I still have it a little even :).  I was floating in my mom's pool in West Palm Beach for several hours.  Just floating in the sun, talking and hanging and relaxing  (have I ever mentioned that I could probably be a professional olympic-grade floater?).  It was so nice and relaxing in fact, that I forgot to put on sunscreen.  I also forgot to take of my second brand new fitbit, and wore it in the drink like a dumbass.  More about that later. grr

My last obsession was, and still is, Trader Joe's Crunchy Cookie Butter (if we're talking food here).  Oh my word.  It's straight up heaven in a glass jar with a plastic lid.  I dare you to try it.  Just have a spoonful.  Or even like, dunk some skinny pretzels in there.  Ugh.  A. Maze. Ing.


  1. If I had a pool the only thing that would be in it right now would be ice, and probably lots of it. What a winter we're having here.

    1. Ugh, I feel you! It was so nice to get some sun for a few days. Can't wait to get rid of this lingering snowy junk...

  2. I KNEW you'd love that Cookie Butter, Mom!! I knew it! :)

    1. Oh man. Seriously Kar - thanks A LOT. Grr! I have NO will power! :)
