My sheets are cold

They don't even have time to get warm because because I'm always traveling. If I'm not traveling, then Mr. Ruby is.

This week, Mr. Ruby is in Canada while I'm in Madison, Wisconsin. Couldn't our jobs send us to like the South Pacific? I leave my snowy lands only to travel to other snow-infested regions of the country. Boo.

So, you'll have to forgive my spotty blogging patterns lately. I'm in the thick of recruiting season which makes me travel about 40% of the time. It's so hard to keep up with the blog...but I promise to catch up and start commenting again soon. Just hang with me! :)

Well. Surprise, surprise. I think I'm getting sick. I'm taking all the EmergenC you can possibly imagine and drinking about 86 ounces of water a day. I really can't get sick right now! I'm hoping to sleep it off tonight and plan to hit the sheets at 9:00. Loser!

Also on my mind: Food. I can't stop thinking about it. I've been really good about working out lately, but my healthy diet hasn't been going quite so well. I have the worst sweet tooth ever. Check out some of my favorite low-cal treats that help me through my sweet cravings:

Jello Sugar-Free Pudding Snacks (the caramel and banana/fudge are so fabulous!) Only 1 WW point


Whole Grain Pop Tarts (you have to get the ones with extra fiber) only 3 WW points


My new FAVORITE find: Bees Knees Peanut Butter - it's non hydrogenated which means not processed. So delicious!



In other news...check out the following giveaways. Not only are the giveaways so tempting, but their blogs are two of my favorites!

Mandy at House of Rose is giving away the CUTEST personalized stationary. I really REALLY want to win! :)

Misadventures of a Newlywed is giving away what else but Lilly Pulitzer stationery!!! I of course really want to this one as well.

But you should check out both blogs for their fun giveaways!!!


Everyone have a great couple of days. I'll be back in business on Thursday. ;)

I'm finally at a break in traveling. I hope you'll stay warm in WI - my normal travel route is up into VT, ME & NH so I understand trying to stay warm!
I'm enjoying your blog - you have a happy traveling follower. :)

The banana-cream pie pudding is also super good!! I add extra low-fat coolwhip and half a sliced banana too it. It makes a great desert for under 200 calories :-)

Oh my gosh, I kinda forgot that Poptarts existed. How dare I? And ps...sorry about the cold sheets. Hopefully they will be nice & warm for you BOTH soon!

Allison said...

Good luck traveling! Haha, maybe soon you'll get to go to the South Pacific? Here's to hoping :)

Ooh, thanks for mentioning all the low fat snacks! I've just been getting the worst sugar cravings lately, it's horrible. But now I'll know what some healthier options are!

MADISON!!!! I'm from Madison, WI- let me know how long you're there and I'll give a few ideas for where to go for dinner that is fun! Crave (on the Wisco campus) and Eno Vino (West Side) are two of my fav's!

OOhh so jeal you're in my old stomping grounds, even if it is work-related!
