You know what’s terrifying? This.
It’s like when you were a kid and you would attempt to tie someone’s shoes together under the table but it never really worked because the person always caught you before they stood up. The other day Andrew said that our kids are going to hide their farts from me because otherwise I’d take away their gluten. (disclaimer: not true).
Speaking of gluten, have you seen the movie This is the End (you’d get the correlation if you’ve seen the movie)? Seriously the worst movie I have ever seen. And that’s saying a lot because I’ve seen pretty much every single movie Mary Kate & Ashley made…Billboard Dad, Holiday in the Sun, New York Minute, Winning London, When in Rome, and Our Lips Are Sealed (a personal favorite). My older sister and I still quote these movies on a bi-weekly basis. And all of our other conversations involve at least one She’s the Man or Pink Panther reference. Hmm both of those movies came out in 2006. Now that was a great year for movies. I wish I was kidding…but I’m not. I for serious love me some Duke Orsino.
But just so we’re clear, as far as fictional characters go…Seth Cohen will always have my heart.
Other things I love involve my favorite go-to easy dinner meal, eating all the chocolate chunks out of trail mix, having a dog so you don’t have to pick up the food you drop while you’re cooking, eating a chiptole chicken bowl (I’m a total cliche, right?), watching beach sunsets (#westcoastalltheway) and absurdly amazing recipe ideas. Peanut Butter Polenta?! At this moment I can think of nothing more amazing…except maybe learning how to do this. Holy smokes.
Other things not worth loving…when you go on vacation and the place you’re staying doesn’t have a blender. I ask you, where do you expect me to make my kale smoothies and frozen margaritas?
Okay, now back to positive things. Like nachos. But these don’t have cheese so are they really nachos. Probably not, but Just Go with it. Another great movie. Not even kidding. Loved it. And I love these “nachos.”
