marketing FAIL

*because the future is written with an F*

I am no marketing expert, but this tag line has been really bugging me since I started seeing it about a month ago.

Yes, future starts with F. But so do a million other words! Some of them are good words, but honestly none of the good ones come to mind first. How about the F-bomb? Failing grade? Fake? Fraud? Frustrating? How about the word FAIL?

healthy AND delicious!

With todays visit to the local Yogen Fruz, I announce that I have officially tried all of the flavors (except for higo, because I'm not sure what it is). AND I've tried them all with a variety of toppings. My favorite? It's a tie between canteloupe with granola or strawberry with granola. (You see, I add the granola so I feel like it's even healthier....)

This is a little bit embarrassing, since it means I go there on a regular basis (like, every other day) and I think the employees are starting to recognize me.

In other news, I am boycotting Zara because they wouldn't let me shop while I ate the aforementioned frozen yogurt. And you should too!....because who tries to take frozen yogurt away from a pregnant woman??? ;)

the big 2-6!

If we didn’t have birthdays, you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born, well then what would you do?
If you’d never been born, well then what would you be?
You might be a fish!
Or a toad in a tree!
You might be a doorknob!
Or three baked potatoes!
You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes.
Or worse than all that…
Why, you might be a WASN’T!
A Wasn’t has no fun at all. No, he doesn’t.
A Wasn’t just isn’t.
He just isn’t present.
But you…You ARE YOU!
And, now isn’t that pleasant!
Today you are you!
That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Shout loud,
“I am lucky to be what I am!
Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham
Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am!
That’s a great thing to be!
If I say so myself,
