I’ve seen the Awkward and Awesome weekly theme floating around other blogs for awhile now, and always meant to join in, but you know how that goes. It won’t be a weekly feature here ’cause I’m way too behind on other content as it is, but it will be occasional easy way to share some new things with you.
Discovered these SmartBagels last week and they were gone in two days between me and the kids. Low calorie, and without all the extra fluff inside that bagels usually have. Which means the kids had them for breakfast and managed to finish them, and when I had a carb craving, I could make a sandwich and not feel too guilty about it. So far, I’ve only see this particular brand at ShopRite, although a few other companies (Thomas’, for example) make similar versions.
On most last visit to Red Mango, I noticed these little pearl toppings in the case next to the fresh fruit. They’re called boba, and are tapioca in nature. They burst once you bite into them, kind of like Fruit Gushers, ‘cept much more healthy. Anyone know if they can be bought on their own, and where?
I have a couple of Rachael Ray‘s pans, and I won’t be buying any more. Mostly because they do this:
Mystic and I went to the movies a few weeks ago, in a theater where you buy your tickets ahead of time, and get to choose your pre-assigned seats. When we arrived, there was a couple sitting in our seats. And it turns out the couple next to them were also in the wrong seats. The attendant looks at us and says, “So where do you want to sit?” Um, gee, maybe in the pre-assigned seats we purchased?
Went to the movies with a friend last night, and when I arrived, again, someone was sitting in one of our seats. “Well, I guess my fun for the night is over,” she said as she moved somewhere else. Uh, yeah, think so. Not awkward for me, but for her? Just a touch.
Your turn to share, my fellow weekenders … your Awkward and Awesome moments recently?
