Ask Me: Random Questions Edition

A few months back, I introduced a new feature for the ol’ blog where you guys can ask me questions and, well, I answer them… Wildly clever, I know!

I’ve received a few quick questions from so many of you lately, I thought I would write a short “Ask Me” post to answer them all…

Question 1

This might sound like an odd question, but what brand of jeans to you wear?  We have a similar shape, and I have such a hard time finding jeans that will fit me.

This doesn’t sound like an odd question at all!  After all, if you read this blog, you know I LOVE to shop… so being asked about jeans is right up my alley!  I buy about 98% of my clothes at NY & Company.

It’s just that place where I can go, and the clothes just work for me.  Now, not EVERY outfit in the store… but a lot of their stuff.  I steer clear of straight leg pants and boy cuts.  Wide leg, flare, and skinny jeans tend to be my favorites when it comes to jeans.  Check them out!

Question 2

Where do you get those cute snack containers?

I get them where all cute containers come from… The Container Store!

We have a few stores in Denver, and I spotted these guys in the lunch box aisle.  Best part, they’re only $3.99 and they come with cute little lids for the dip.  Snacking perfection!  Click here for more details!

Question 3

You often say that you’re picky, but you eat a lot of unusual foods.    What don’t you eat?

Wow… I’ve been a picky eater all my life.  Seriously picky.  As an adult, I’m just very particular about what I like and what I don’t like.  Here’s a few crazy things that you won’t find me eating:


Greek Yogurt (any yogurt really)

All Kinds of Seafood


Any Member of the Squash Family

Yeah… I said Greek Yogurt.  As a healthy living blogger, I know that’s practically unheard of, but I just can’t….

Question 4

I love trying the products you’ve recommended.  Especially the new Skinny Cow desserts.  Do you have anything new to share this week?

I actually do!  My sister-in-law Beth told me that she spotted Light Olive Garden Salad Dressing for sale at Wal-Mart this week.  I made a trip to  our local Neighborhood Market store and found a bottle to try!

It’s delicious and only has 30 calories per 2 Tbsp.  A great option for your salad greens!

A New Snack:  Have you seen these guys in the grocery store?  They’re AMAZING, and they come from our friends over at Special K.  Try them at your own risk… I put them in the same category of those tasty pastry crisps I shared a few months back!

Do you have any additional questions you’d like me to answer in the next round of “Ask Me”?

    I’m with you! No seafood for me but I have been giving tilapia more and more of a chance and its not bad. I also love calamari, which is so weird because most people who don’t like sefood would not eat that. Salmon though…I can’t!
    Have a great weekend!
