9¢ Candy Should Be Illegal

The CVS across from my office has all their Valentines candy on sale for 90% off. I grabbed a bag of gummy hearts thinking that for 9 measly pennies I couldn't pass them up. The plan was to munch a few and then save the rest for later. That was the plan...until I shoved 3/4 of the bag in my face while driving to Goodwill. Way to go, Tina.

What I Wore While Spending 9 Cents:

2010-03-02 combo

  • equestrian skirt (via Goodwill)
  • blue silk ruffle-neck shell (Talbots, NWT via Goodwill)
  • brown cashmere sweater (Old Navy)
  • gold earrings (from Mom)
  • gold tone brooch (via Goodwill)
  • brown boots (Cloudwalkers via Avenue)
  • belt (thrifted)
What I Ate After Leaving Dinner Sitting on the Counter ALL DAY LONG:

2010-03-02 food

  • breakfast: nutty bar, Blade
  • lunch: Quorn patty on Whitewheat bun with avocado, sugar snap peas, carrots, cheese stick, orange, diet hot cider
  • snack: 3/4 bag juju hearts
  • dinner: General Tso's chicken (1/2), fried rice (1/2), wonton soup with wonton crisps, veggie egg roll


30 minnutes on the treadmill while watching Amazing Race. Man, I really want to be on that show. Actually, that's not quite right. I have no desire to be on TV, but I really want to do the race.

Total for the Day: 49.5 points eaten, 30 minutes exercise (2 points earned), 5 glasses water

Tina, that skirt is amazing - I love the bright colors that could be matched with so many colorful accessories, and the print is such a great scale for you.

Skirt is super cute. Swap out the boots for a pair of riding boots, toss on some bling, and don your cowboy hat and you're ready for the rodeo. Come on down!

You know that's one thing we have on Dallas - the biggest rodeo worldwide.

Great skirt - I agree with Kari: you could wear that with tons of different colours. Great belt too!

Uh-oh, that sucks about your dinner! My problem is I forget to thaw things and then am stuck with something like a grilled tuna and cheese for dinner.

I'm loving this look. I think it's the combo of blue and brown + the combo of more circular patterns in the skirt and square belt. Its a fun mixup.

I picked up a lot of valentines candy on clearance at Target. Last night I put most of it in a bag and out of my pantry becuase I was eating it in ridiculous amounts. Oh sale candy - it has done me in many a time.

Your candy sounds like my girl scout cookies - I meant to eat 2 and I ended up eating the whole box!!

I'm a sucker for anything gummy. My holy grail: chocolate covered gummy bears. They do exist!

LOVE that skirt. It is simply gorgeous.
