i am thankful for...

...the fact that i do not live near a starbucks. or a target. or sonic. or chick-fil-a.

because my bank account would most certainly be depleted and i would have quite the muffin top.

seriously, i've been back in the hometown for barely 48 hours and already have been overwhelmed by all of the options. multiple double tall one pump peppermint one pump white chocolate mocha non-fat no whip extra hot peppermint white chocolate mochas have been consumed. {yes, i am that customer.} there is the CONSTANT temptation of diet cherry limeades and small tots from the sonic that i can almost see from our house. i had a #1 combo at chick-fil-a for breakfast on saturday {that's an original sandwich, waffle fries, and a diet lemonade to the uninitiated}. and then there's target....i'm pretty sure i don't need to explain that to y'all.

i don't know how y'all manage to control yourselves. i live in a town with a wal*mart, a tractor supply, one mediocre local coffee shop with questionable hours, and a handful of fast food restaurants that don't stay open past 11pm, so it's fairly easy to control the purse strings. but lord help me, put me within 5 miles of any of the aforementioned establishments and i can't get the plastic out of my wallet fast enough.

thank god i'm out of here on friday or else my christmas shopping budget will be gone!

don't even get me started about the "questionable hours" at that coffee shop. they used to DRIVE ME BATTY. which is funny, because i don't even like their coffee. clearly you did not have a problem with the 24hr waffle house, because that led to my muffin top when i lived in your town. have a happy thanksgiving!

I hear you. I live 1 hour away from all of those except Sonic. Luckly Sonic is the only thing we have so I got tired of it fast. Look out when I get close to all the rest cause it is on!!!!

Oh yum! Cherry limeade sounds so good right now and yeah, now that you mention it, it is hard living with all of these things around you constantly tempting you. Especially those fab Starbucks drinks that are about 1000 calories, but so, so good! Oh, well. Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

OK, I need to move where you live because I am surrounded by a Target, Starbucks, Sonic AND Chick-Fil-A all within five minutes of my home. Not good.

At least we can all control ourselves at tractor supply stores:). Thank heavens for small favors!

Haha see I like coming home because I'm not surrounded by those stores and at school I make VERY frequent trips (esp to Sonic!)
