eye sore.

hello and welcome to saturday! 

i am not a happy camper this morning.  or last night, for that matter.  i was supposed to go to a concert with marshall, but i have something wrong with my eyes!  first the stye and now this mystery problem. 

i went to the eye doc on monday about my stye.  i had my eyes dilated and i have been careful to take my contacts out every night since then (i used to take them out once a month, max.)  well, yesterday, both of my eyes were super red and hurt way bad.  so bad to the point where i couldn’t leave the house and my poor husband went to the concert alone.  i thought i could sleep it off, but this morning they are just as bad! i am going into the doc in an hour to see WTF.

although i am trying to keep my eyes closed as much as possible, i did manage to make a tasty yogurt bowl for breakfast.  even blind people have to eat.


3/4 cup oikos, handful of nature’s indulgence vanilla nut granola, one trader joe’s high fiber blueberry muffin & a huge spoonful of justin’s maple almond butter!

who’s that guy? IMG_1266

randy dog :)


i also had a mug of costa rica blend coffee that kristen & rory brought us back from their trip.


isn’t my coffee mug the best? it was a wedding gift from mara. speaking of mara, have you clicked today?

i am going to go get dressed so i can head to the eye doc. i hope they can fix me!

because it is saturday and saturdays are for fun, i thought i would post some fast food ad vs. the real thing comparisons. i don’t eat fast food but i got a huge kick out of this webpage.

i don’t eat fast food because it makes me feel sick.  i used to eat it daily and then when i did the BFL challenge and tried to eat fast food on my free day, i threw up.  that told me something about the ingredients i was putting into my body.

the comparison below is total false advertising.  the ad photos on the left look way more appetizing than the real deal.  i wonder how many beef & cheddars arby’s would sell if their ad showcased what you actually get?

McDonald’s McSkillet burrito

Wendy’s Chicken Club

McDonald’s Sausage Breakfast Burrito

Arby’s Beef ‘n’ Cheddar

KFC Famous Bowl

Wendy’s Southwest Taco Salad

Taco Bell Nachos Bell Grande

pretty crazy, right?  i think it is pathetic, really.  fast food companies make their menu items appear so appetizing to the public.  and it works! especially for kids, who don’t know any better.  maybe some of you like fast food and don’t agree with my opinion.. but the comparison above is still pretty amusing.  obviously the fast food companies are not going to showcase what the food actually looks like, but it would be more comforting if the real thing resembled the ad a bit more closely, no?

i gotta stop looking at a computer screen! i am an idiot. off to get my eyes fixed.


1. do you eat fast food? what is your take on the ad vs. reality comparisons above?

2. what kind of doctor do you hate going to the most? and the least? it should go without saying, the girl doc is my least fave. but i LOVE going to the dentist! call me crazy! the eye doctor doesn’t bother me much, but i hate when they shoot that poof of air into your eye.
