I don't know why I'm posting this...it won't matter. I am completely obsessed with Chipotle, and I will admit it. A few years ago, I would eat there 3-5 times a week. Now, I only visit 1-2 times...but that's probably still too many. Ok, obviously it's too many (just look at the nutrition facts below for what I eat.) I'm WAY too careless about my food intake, but these fatty, salty facts probably still won't sway me away.

Look at all that protein! That's what a vegetarian like me needs. It's settled - it's too healthy to give up. :)
Oh, P.S. - you can (if you dare) generate your own at www.chipotlefan.com.

A few more new items...

A few more items I added to my shop today. :)


1. Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention; add a question of your own.

2. Tag eight other un-tagged people.

*What is your current obsession? Sewing, Carolina (the Heels), and Twilight of course!

*Do you nap a lot? Whenever I can get one in. I have the oddest sleeping habits.

*Who was the last person you hugged? Scott or Cooper.

*What’s for dinner? Don’t know, but I had Liquid Planet for lunch and it was sooo good. Veg-Out…Yum!

*What was the last thing you bought? A new camera and a batch of business cards. What are you listening to right now? People around the office talk about work things.

*What is your favorite weather? I like mid-70ish. I love when the weather first starts getting warm in Spring…before it gets hot.

*What’s on your bedside table? An OSU football helmet (not by choice), my glasses, and my berry.

*Say something to the person/s who tagged you. You are so sweet and I love reading your new posts!

*If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be? If everything was paid for and I didn’t have to work…probably near my family!

*Favorite vacation spot? I’ve only been once, but I loved the Bahamas.Name the things you can’t live without. Non-people/animal related. A bathtub (love baths), chocolate, email, naps.

*What would you like to have in your hands right now? A billion dollars and a snack. Oh, and tickets to the Final Four.

*What would you like to get rid of? My lack of energy.

*If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go? Home to see my family!

*What did you want to become as a child? A teacher, a journalist, an then an optometrist

*What do you like better, e-mail or telephone calls? Email – I hate talking on the phone for the most part.

*What are you currently reading? Still trying to finish My Sister’s Keeper, but I never have time to read.

*What is your favorite ice cream? Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food.

*What is one April’s resolution that you’d like to try to start and keep? Working out/sleeping more!

The Mandizzle "I Want List" - #1

So, I will never get most of these things (maybe a nail polish...or two), but I can still want them, right?


Cool Stuff

#1 - Gypsy Chandelier - $139 - Dutch by Design//I.need.this.

#2 - Tropical Bracelet - $12 - erinkeys @etsy//This just puts me in a good mood.

#3 - Brights by OPI Nailpolishes - Atomic Orange/Gargantuan Green Grape/Blue My Mind/Need Sunglasses?/Charge Up Cherry - $8.50 and lower - OPI

Finally - a pic from our Conan encounter.

He was such a nice guy, and wished the Cavs good luck (even though we weren't supposed to tell anyone in Boston that. :) )

Wow, a newspaper gave me some press! :)

It may be a little vain, but I have google alerts set up for my Etsy shop...just to let me know if it ever gets mentioned or anything.

Well today, I got an alert and saw this bit from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. I was so excited! :)

Chiming in on the Bach...

Alright, so the moment that Melissa Rycroft stepped out of the limo on the first episode of the Bachelor, I basically screamed.

Melissa is my favorite Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader of all-time. Is it weird that I have one of those? Yes, maybe. She is my favorite because she was so cute and fun on the reality show. When the DCC's visited Cleveland for a Lake Erie Monsters game last year, I was super excited - but unhappy that Melissa didn't come. See below for an example of my friend Stephanie and I in one of our many stalkerazzi photographs. :)

Anyway, I totally knew that she would "win," but what a Doucheschnoggle Jason is for dumping her. Oh well, I don't think they were a great fit anyway...he is probably a nice guy - but not that nice if he did that to her on national television. Also, some of my friends brought up a great point...why does everyone run at him and basically attack him when they see him? He must smell like chocolate or something.
