Girl Friends

All throughout my high school and college years, I only had a handful of girl friends. Literally, I could count them on one hand. I was not a tom boy, quite the contrary, but most of my closest friends were boys.

I was the first one in my group of friends to get married. D never had a problem with my guy friends. He knew them all and was ok with them. When they got into relationships and married, that is when it all changed. I guess it's harder for women to accept. So we all started drifting away.

So now, I really miss not having girl friends. Yes, I still have my handful, but they all still have young kids and of course, they have to come first. Totally understandable. I have more freedom now that my girls are grown. Girls Night is practically non-existant for me. My girls have their own things going on and when D is working, I'm on my own.

So yeah, I need some friends. Sad, I know. Maybe I can place an ad on Craigslist (KIDDING!) Or maybe I can join this group on I LOVE LUCY

Breyer's Smooth & Dreamy

I am a HUGE sweets freak. Food is over rated, give me my dessert! I live by the mantra of "Life is too short, eat dessert first." Being a sweets-aholic is generally not a good thing, or at least that is what my thighs tell me. So I am very excited to try the new Breyer's Smooth & Dreamy Bars and Sandwiches! I need to have my daily sweets fix, no matter what diet I am on. If I deprive myself for one day, the next day I could probably eat an entire gallon of ice cream. At just 160 calories or less, the Breyer's Bars & Sandwiches may just be the answer! Sweet indulgence without all the calories.

Product Details:

* New Breyers® Smooth & Dreamy bars and sandwiches are indulgently delicious, and have less fat and fewer calories than regular ice cream bars and sandwiches and no artificial flavors or colors.

* The lineup of Breyers® Smooth & Dreamy frozen novelties includes ice cream bars and sandwiches with extra creamy light ice cream and delicious mix-ins.
Smooth & Dreamy Bars and Sandwiches are available in rich flavors like Chocolate Caramel Brownie, Vanilla Caramel Chip, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Covered Strawberry, Vanilla Fudge Brownie, and Triple Chocolate Chip. Each bar or sandwich has 160 calories or less and 4-6g of fat per serving.

* Moms need to treat themselves here and there to some much-needed “me” time. Breyers® Smooth & Dreamy Bars and Sandwiches are a great way for moms to reward themselves with an indulgent treat that has fewer calories than regular ice cream.

 UPDATE:  I had the opportunity to try each variety (except for the strawberry) and although they were all very good, my favorite was the Vanilla Caramel Chip Bar. You would never be able to tell that these were only 160 calories each.  The ice cream was smooth & creamy, not icy and watery.  Full of flavor and a fantastic treat!
