Lemony Snacket

June 18, 2012

For weeks now I have been trying to remember to have a graham cracker + nut butter sandwich for a snack. I keep forgetting! Or rather, “wet” snacks always appeal to me more: cereal, yogurt, smoothies, fruit. “Dry” snacks don’t seem to fill me up as much so I find them less appealing. But today […]

Anyways, I had a great time today! (My shoulders did not, however!) We have been on a month+ kick of Rihanna’s “We Found Love” as our […]
