Breakfast: The Healthy and the Not So Healthy





Breakfast. It's got to be the best meal of the day, right? There are just so many different options--sweet or savory. Proteins or yummy, delicious carbs. Coffee AND orange juice!!! I could go on and on, but I won't.

My Honey Bunny, like me, is a huge proponent of breakfast. Huge may even be an understatement. Is there a word bigger than huge? Whatever that word is..... that's him! Over the weekend I went to visit my Honey Bunny.  I love going to visit him, not only because he's just so darn cute! Not gonna lie, that's the biggest reason, but also because I love the area he lives in. Austin is well known for 6th Street and the music scene, but they also happen to be cafe country. There are so many quaint little cafes to eat in. I haven't found one that I didn't like yet, and we've been to many a cafe over the last several months.

My Newest Obsessions



Newest Obsession #1: The Carrie Diaries

I've made it no secret that I am a die-hard Sex and the City fan over the years. I own the series on DVD and I could probably detail every episode in chronological order if asked. So when Candace Bushnell came out with the new YA series of books a couple of years ago, The Carrie Diaries, which is a based on Carrie Bradshaw as a teen, it was no surprise that I was already a fan by association to it's namesake.

But wait, it gets better (or worse, in my fan-girldom case) because now, NOW, The Carrie Diaries has become a TV series.... And I am not ashamed at all to say that I'm in love (even though it is airing in place of Gossip Girl, which I also loved. Chuck Bass is dearly missed). It's like getting a second chance to watch Carrie again. AnnaSophia Robb is the perfect Carrie, in my opinion. Her mannerisms, hair, clothes everything screams Carrie Bradshaw! It doesn't hurt that she's just so freakin' cute too! I seriously hate her--in a friendly way, of course. Ha!

I often try to hold out on watching new series because it never fails that I watch them, LOVE them, and then they are promptly cancelled (al la Emily Owens, MD.  No comment). I couldn't resist with this one though, so here's to hoping (and praying to the Carrie gods) that it will not be cancelled!
