It was this ugly skin colored tank top from old navy that looked like it had been scraped out of the bargain bin ??? It had no thought in it at all. And no one would ever wear it.

What I Ate Wednesday

This is my second time doing this!




Here goes...

For breakfast I made my classic numiness (But with THREE tangerines this time. LOOK OUT!)
2 large eggs, 2 pieces of weight watchers white bread, 1 tsp butter on toast, extra lean ham and 3 tangerines + glass of water. VERY DELICIOUS! (12 Weight Watchers points)


For lunch I had this meal: TUNA IS DEEEELICIOUS and nutritious. I started eating it before I remembered to take a picture. So hungry! Ha ha. Ok, I use flaked white tuna and mix it with low cal miracle whip and veggies. Today I added chopped green pepper, onions and celery. NUM! Again on weight watchers white bread. Then I filled the rest of my tummy with a normous pickle and veggies and phili dill pickle dip (my fav).



Then I wanted something sweet so I ate these, Weight Watcher Cinnamon...crisps? 2 points a sachel.


So point total for lunch: tuna sandwich 5 or 6 pts, phili dip 5 points, and sweets 2 points for a total of 13!

For dinner I had this THANKS MOM!


Instant rice from a CAN lol it was good and a pork chop. This meal also totalled 13 points.

So there you have it! Link up and post your own what I ate Wednesday!

Tyler's Wish List!

OKAY! Let's go crazy with Christmas presents!

What is on my wish list this year? Well this year I have really been trending towards books. Books related...anything books I would really like. Also beauty products and moisturisers. I LOVE to moisturise. A couple times a day at least on my face. For some reason when I don't wear makeup my face gets dryer easier. And I have been being a lazy pants when it comes to make up wearing for the past few months.

Baking! I have only just TONIGHT baked cookies that are not a fail. They are actually delicious! They are called Reverse Chocolate Chip cookies. They are made with cocoa powder to choco-tise the dough and white chocolate chips. I left out 1/4 cup flour from the recipe.. I am a big fan of no flour. I find when I make a batch of cookies with too much flour that is all I can taste. Any fun recipe books or tools (cookie cutters, fun baking kits)

Without further ado...



The Shiver book series. I've heard that if you like Twilight you'll like these. There are three books in the series and I cannot wait to read them!


 A book holder! This is the only picture I could find using google but there is one from Chapters that is really nice...I believe it is called a lap book. I want to use it, mostly for reading in the bathroom so I stop getting my books wet and ruining them but it would also be nice for reading at the table!

                                   
Book ends. SNAZZY book ends. That are strong and heavy. Friggin books needa stay up! These are from Chapters. Sooooo cute!


Dearest of Santas, please please bring me enough stocking money to splurge on these $209 glasses. Cuz they are awesome. And it is about time I bought myself a pair of legit sunglasses more expensive then $4...

A digital food scale so that I can weigh my food properly...President's Choice brand sells them at the Superstore! My friend has one and I love love love it. There's a fancy bamboo one at Walmart as well.

A digital scale for MYSELF! I have a wonky needle one that goes +- 5 pounds for no reason at all and is impossible to read unless you bend over. I have no idea where you can get one of these but it would have to run over 300lbs to work for me! Probably one of the cheaper ones wouldn't work.

DKNY PURE perfume



A Maneki Neko (Lucky Cat) I love these little buggers. I have a tiny one that I keep on my vanity but I would love to get a big one!


A rolling pin to facilitate my extreme bakingness! (Hopefully it will add to my extreme skill)



That about wraps it up for this years Tyler Wish List.

A few other tidbits include - ANYTHING from Sephora (Urban Decay, Benefit, Sephora brand), Gum (a minty flavour), Magazines (Nylon, Cosmo, Elle), Ferrero Rocher!

What are you all wishing for this Christmas???

Rainbows! and Awesomeness

This happened the other day. It was so bright at first, and you could see the entire arc end to end. I ran in the house and got my ma and we both went out and watched it fade (and I snapped some photos QUICK). It only lasted about 4 minutes. So beautiful.

 

This I took a couple weeks ago now but always MEANT to post it so I am...

Please be sure to listen to my hilarious father and excuse my sickness...I definitely had a stuffed nose and am caveman mouthbreathing the entire time. But it was a great moment to capture!
