#RealTalk Food and Drink Pancake Sundays


June 28, 2013

Confession: For the last 10 years or so I have been on and off diets fairly consistently. I’ve done the 3 day diet, a juice cleanse, counted calories, ate more protein, had no sweets, joined Weight Watchers, tried the Special K challenge…you name it. I really want to lose weight, but I want dessert and carbs even more (which is a damn shame for my waistline). Since it’s bikini season, at present I am obviously on some variation of a diet. Therefore, what I can’t eat I pin. It helps that Adam and I basically have the shittiest kitchen known to man and it’s an effing puzzle trying to cook anything up in thur. There’s also not a dishwasher in our shitty kitchen…which makes cooking even more of a chore. That being said, here’s some of what I wish we were eating (and drinking) right now. Feel free to drop off any of the below, at any time.

1. Sausage stuffed jalapenos. There is nothing wrong with this phallic-looking goodness.


2. Pretty blueberry mojitos. Because I like to be classy when I drink sometimes.


3. No explanation needed.


4. Braided spaghetti bread. Shameless and delicious.


5. I like everything about these campfire eclairs, except that they aren’t in my belly right now.


Happy eating (or pinning).

xx, Victoria

Happy Birthday, Lover

If you haven’t said Happy Birthday to Mr. Adam Wirdak, you best be getting to that. Being that today I have to travel instead of celebrate, I tried to redeem myself last weekend with a surprise party for my main squeeze. I thought planning…

Fatties in Paradise

Sometimes, there are things you do in life that don’t really make a lot of sense. We’ve all been there…selected seasonally-coordinated bands for your braces, tried to dye your hair blonde from an at-home kit, attempted to drank 2 whole bottles of wine all…
