YOU read my blog?! OH. no.

so don't worry, this will be a photo filled post eventually.  BUT first, MAJOR. DISASTER.  so trip and i are at pbsc, drinking these: 
 and hanging out with our buds.  meanwhile, i am wearing this:

(if you're interested in stealing my style, that's the Stella and Dot Palm Necklace with Starfish, Lilly Pulitzer Olette Top and Stella and Dot Starfish Earrings - click on any to order, or call Lilly Pulitzer Fashion Valley and ask for Alanna - free shipping!), and i turned to trip and said, i know i'm really matchy-matchy right now!  and he said, that's okay, i know you've been trying to accessorize more...
does this sound familiar!? ya, maybe because of THIS POST from over a month ago!  so i said, how did you know that?  i didn't tell anyone that...and he said, well, i, well, maybe...HE'S BEEN READING MY BLOG SINCE JANUARY!  (hi, hun.) SINCE. JANUARY. that means not only does he know HOW much i weigh, he's been getting WEEKLY UPDATES! 
 so. speaking of which, after drinking three of these yesterday:
(they were good but a little too sweet)
it's time to get back on the "around" 1200 calorie a day diet.  thus, i give you today's plan:
breakfast: (210c.) Weigh Watcher's Smart Ones Egg and Cheese English Muffin Sandwich - SO good and a staple in my diet - they're better than the ones from McDonald's!
snack: (70c.) container of blackberries - six oz. and a (60c.) Frigo Cheese Heads Light String Cheese
lunch: (60c.) Granny Smith Apple w/ (35c.) Light Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge and (100c.) Thomas' Better Start High Fiber English Muffin with a slice of (45c.) Kraft Singles 2% Milk Pepper Jack Cheese - as previously mentioned, tastes like delicious and incredible grilled cheese.
snack: (90c.) 2 slices of Sara Lee De-Lightful bread w/ I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray and Garlic Salt - basically the only low calorie way to eat 'garlic bread'
dinner: (115c.) Steam Fresh Frozen Vegetables-Cauliflower and Broccoli w/ (40c.) 4 tbsp. of Mango Salsa
dessert/dinner extended: (250c.) 10oz. fat-free frozen yogurt from Fiji Yogurt 

with this menu, I still have 125 calories to play around with before i hit 1200 - so if i want a FiberOne Bar or maybe a FullBar, no big deal!  ETA: Okay, ate the extra 125 calories at lunch...definitely had half of a chocolate frosted cake donut (180c.) and some cauliflower (53c.).  i would say oops, but...that's life - sounds like i'll only be getting 8 oz of frozen yogurt, and no cheese with my apple now!  Now, as always, let's see if I actually stick to this...i really want to start buying these:

so that means that i need to stop doing this:

P.S. I am waitlisted for the iPad - I'll tell y'all if it ever shows up!
P.P.S. has anyone heard of Brazilian Blowout / does anyone know anyone who's gotten it?  I'm tempted but at $275 a hit I don't know if it's worth it...
and here's a fun glass straw giveaway @ Fashion Meets Food:

Your outfit looks super cute, and I cant believe he's been reading it since January! Your food for the day sounds pretty good. I really need to try to be around 1,200 calories, but I really want to be under that so I can actually lose weight. However you look absolutely fab!


Masked McKenna said...

Those dresses are super cute! Totally worth it, I say!

Marian said...

Seriously, I think you should move to Baltimore and help me shop. I'll pay the big bucks:)

And thats super cute that the boy reads your blog. Loves it

Mary said...

What a disciplined diet you have! I wish I could do that! Super cute dresses. Love your blog!

Delightful Bitefuls

Short Southern Momma said...

I love the dresses!! I have thought about the "blowout" too! I don't think anyone here in my little boonie town even knows how to do it. {haha} Hope your having a great week! xoxo

Southern Living: Preppy Style said...

I just had an S & D party and hit $1,000!!! Now, I am having MAJOR issues trying to figure out what I want for free and what I want for 1/2 price! So many decisions!!!
Love the LIlly (thanks for the style tip, that helped me out as I am in LOVE with tube tops - did a post recently with that exact same Lilly, but in green). Also, what a disciplined diet. Look forward to hearing how you do.

Hey you! I love those dresses! How are you doing? MISS you! Two things:

1) I am getting a BB on Thursday!!! I cannot wait. I have super curly and frizzy hair that takes over an hour to straighten. I am so excited and I will post pictures!!!

2) I never got those earrings that I won, I remembered it when I saw those cute little star fish, so I thought I would ask you:)

Jessica said...

hey girl! as a hairstylist, I'm very familiar with the Brazilian Blowout. super great if you have frizzy hair or live in a humid climate. if your hair is curly, it may temporarily relax the curls very slightly, but as far as permanence goes, no go. do it if you're in for a great fix but beware, it may only last a few weeks. I did it on my best friend and hers lasted approx. 6 weeks but as far as results go, they were INCREDIBLE. I say go for it :)


Miss Southern Prep said...

That outfit looks so cute! I have really curly hair too, so I went to a special hairstylist, and she used this new type of cut that completely changed my hair! Before it was really frizzy, and I would NEVER wear it curly, but now I wear it curly so much more! Good luck with the BB if you decide to get one!

Oh, and thanks so much for following my blog! Hope you had a fabulous day!

I think its cute that BF reads the blog. Did you watch Bachelorette last night? I need to pick a new front runner now that Chris H went home.

Also, tell the Navy to move you to Norfolk. I could use your styling help.

Kristin said...

Bet you looked gorg in that outfit. Such a fabulous necklace. And I don't think the hubs would be able to quote even one of my blog posts. HA!

Peace.Love. Lipgloss. said...

That burger shot is hysterical! I'm totally trying to eat better which includes phasing out my diet cokes. I know quel horror! My client gets brazilian blowouts(she also gets brazilians from me- ha ha!) She's obsessd with them & her hair looks amazing FYI

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

sigh, this makes me really want to play for the rest of the work!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Wow bet you looked awesome in that outfit!

And I like Mike's Hard Lime - tastes kind of like a margarita and it's super refreshing.

♥Aubrey said...

Brazilian Blowout...heard of it YES! Want to get one ABSOLUTELY. Let me know if it really works.
