I'm supposed to be booking a vacation in Laguna Beach for jparks and I right now, but I can not handle the pressure of picking a hotel. My options are fancy hotel about 20 minutes away from the beach that I know the name of or supposedly fancy hotel on the beach via hotwire which could screw me over when I learn that their idea of fancy isn't the same as mine. Or do I redefine my search area and look in Dana Point as well? Or Newport Beach? Seriously, I suck at vacation planning.
So, instead of driving myself crazy over analyzing every single option for hotels I'm going to tell you all about the crap I've become obsessed with lately. I know, it's really exciting, just try to stay calm and not hyperventilate.
Maybe it's because I'm Gossip Girl obsessed and every party on that show is sponsored by Vitamin Water but lately I can't get enough of this stuff. I used to be the mean person that enjoyed pointing out to unsuspecting co-workers how bad regular Vitamin Water is (it's loaded with sugar and calories! Like way more than you would ever expect!) but now they make it with just 10 calories per serving and I'm totally a junkie. The only complaint I have left is about the price still being a bit ridiculous so I limit myself to one bottle per day. Should anyone want to send me a case, my favorite flavor is XXX.
And since I'm telling you about my new favorite beverage let me tell you all about the awesome cup I like to use while drinking it.
It's a reusable tumbler from Starbucks and it kicks the ass of any other cup out there. Yes, I realize I'm a walking advertisement for a mediocre coffee chain when I use it, but I don't care. It's a replica of their venti cup, but made with double walls so it doesn't leave condensation everywhere and the lid screws on tight so the cat can't knock it off and stick her paws in my drink. Who would have thought something so simple would make me so happy?
My final new obsession is CostCo. I've been a CostCo member for well over a year now, but I hated going after work when the lines were stupid long or, even worse, on weekends. Since I've started going during the day with the other housewives I've cultivated quite the obsession. Last week I bought a box of 200 Otter Pops. Do you have any idea how long 200 Otter Pops will last? FOREVER. If you plan on visiting me anytime soon, count on eating an Otter Pop. I also recently picked up a pack of 2000 q-tips. Jparks and I use 3 q-tips per day so we are set for the next 666.67 days. Honestly, most of the items I can buy at CostCo aren't much cheaper than at Target, but Target doesn't sell them in bulk and for some reason it is very satisfying when I come home with 2000 q-tips, 200 Otter Pops, and 6 pounds of butter.
I have more I could tell you about, like my new hippie allergy medicine which beats every other allergy medicine on the market, OTC and prescription included, but I should probably bite the bullet and book a hotel room already. I think I've narrowed it down to one hotel so now the question is do I want the whirlpool spa tub or not. decisions, decisions.
