It’s official. I absolutely love living with a guy. I’ve had wonderful girl roommates for as long as I can remember, but living with a dude is real great. They don’t have near as much hair (or at least my guy doesn’t) to fill the bathroom floor, they don’t use as much toilet paper, they do the dishes when I cook, and they take the trash out. I don’t know why I’m saying they since it’s just one dude. And I’ve never lived with a guy before so it’s hard to say if other guys do those things. But mine does. And I just love it.
I hate that when I get really mad about something, like a package being delivered, I get wrinkles. No one wants wrinkles. No one. But the stress the Fedex is causing me right now is definitely adding some new wrinkles to my forehead. And their lack of help through customer service added increased blood pressure to my daily schedule. Fedex, you suck. Usually you are great. But today, you suck. I’m totally going to Yelp review this. Probably not, but I’ll think about doing it.
So yesterday, good ole’ yesterday. People shart their pants about my greek yogurt chia pudding instagram post that I shared when I found it at Sprouts. People really don’t like that I represent paleo if I don’t post 100% paleo 100% of the time. Obviously, they have never read my blog. Which is the reason I have an instagram. My blog has 99% paleo recipes, 1% primal recipes. I like to add cheese into some recipes. I can count all of those recipes on one hand. Kill me. Anywho, I use my instagram to share paleo and primal and even gluten free recipes on it. Not to satisfy every single person, but to share healthier options that I find along my paleo/primal/gluten free/eat-what-i-want/eat-what-makes-me-feel-good/eat-to-celebrate/eat-to-love-life/eat-to-be-healthier lifestyle path. Sometimes it’s a strict paleo recipe from my blog, sometimes it’s a gluten free treat I got at a bakery. But I will not apologize for posting those things. I will keep posting and let people do their own research about paleo. If they are too lazy to figure out information on their own, I am not at fault. All people eat different things, so stop freaking out, weirdos. Just because you don’t eat dairy doesn’t mean another person on instagram does the same.
I think I’m really opinionated today.
Last thing. I had a gluten free caramel apple pie pancake from Snooze AM Eatery this morning. It was seriously the best thing I’ve eaten in probably 2 weeks. I can’t say life. I could, but that would be just an intense exaggeration. And it comes a close second to the ice cream topped paleo chocolate chip cookie I had on Valentine’s Day. New problem I have: I live really close to Snooze and just found out they have wi-fi. You’ll know where to find me….every morning.
Maybe I’m so opinionated from my sugar high this morning.
