I know what you’re thinking. These cookies don’t look very good. But you know what I’m thinking? “You’re dumb. These cookies are super delish. And making paleo cookies look good is real hard. Because I suck at it. Just trust me.
So I am sitting in Breckenridge right now, on an absolutely gorgeous day, and blogging. Seems weird, but sadly enough, I absolutely LOVE it. I like going to different places to blog because I get so sick of sitting on my couch, blogging in my underwear, smelling like cooked meat for the rest of my day outside of my house. Smelling like Starbucks is kind of better. Have you ever eaten lunch in a Subway and smelled like that afterwards? You’d think it would smell good, right? Baked bread. But no, you smell like soiled socks afterwards. If that’s not a sign that you shouldn’t eat gluten, I don’t know what is.
And as I type this, there is a couple sitting next to me, not being able to take their hands off each other. It’s a bit obnoxious all while being ridiculously adorable. I’m not a huge PDA person but if a guy wants to hold my hand and stare at me while saying how much he likes me, I’d be down. AND this couple is looking at engagement rings. Oh go f*ck yourself. I’m kidding, don’t hate me. I don’t even really want to get married and I still think that’s stupid cute. I’m a total hopeless romantic. I don’t want to get married, but I want someone who would actually like me enough to want to marry me. Catch 22 anyone? Well, I don’t think so. But every man out there thinks we are just after marriage. You men, are dumb. I just want a simple, nice guy who likes me as much as I like them. Is that too much to ask? Ok, I’m done complaining.
I can’t stop staring at this couple. I’m such a creep.
Have you ever been to Breckenridge? It’s gorgeous and super cute. Especially this time of year. The aspen leaves are changing to yellow so these huge bundles of yellow trees are placed throughout the greenery and it’s CRAZY cool looking. I grew up around the mountains and never cared. Now I finally like it a little more. Unless it’s snowy. Being cold blows. And dressing yourself in warm clothes is expensive. Damn you Colorado winter. I know you’re coming for me.
Speaking of dressing yourself, I went shopping this weekend. AND I didn’t even cry. I was actually happy. Weird, I know. Staring at yourself in dressing rooms is not exactly happy fun times when you have cellulite like I do. But I moved past that the other day. I said “holy sh*t, your ass is huge” and then I bought the jeans that my ass fit into. 2 pairs, actually. That means I have FOUR pairs of the same kind of jeans. I bought them at Old Navy if you were wondering where an ass my size could find jeans. The Rock Star style. They’re awesome. So stretchy, I will be able to increase my thigh size by at least 4 inches around and still be able to fit into them. Genius. Oh, and they were only $20! F*ck yeah. My mom would be so proud.
Thank god this couple is finally leaving. I almost told them I hated them for how awesomely loving they are. That would have been weird. For all of us.
Oh, and if you’re wondering where the hell I got nutella? Well, it’s not exactly nutella. It’s Nikki’s Coconut Butter Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie Coconut Butter. To die for. I’m not even kidding. I would eat this before I died. If you haven’t seen their products yet, you gotta do it. Truly fantastic flavors.
