Be Careful What You Wish For

Be Careful What You Wish For


Ah yes, my Hubby. Life is seldom dull in the Ann’s Entitled Life household… even when it concerns paint. And corners. And Freezers. And eight square feet.

For the last two years – keep in mind that I said years this box was on the side of our freezer:

Be Careful What You Wish For


No, it was not set up. No the shelf was was not being used. It was a box. By the side of the freezer. For two years.

Whenever I would ask about the status of said box and its contents, Hubby would tell me he’d get to it “soon”. Never a real date, just “soon”.

According to the Merriam Webster dictionry, this is the definition of “soon”:

1 a obsolete : at once : immediately
b : without undue time lapse : before long
2 : in a prompt manner : speedily
3 archaic : before the usual time

No where do I see two years in that definition.

Well of course over that two year time span I forgot what the empty spot by the side of the freezer actually looked like. And, we started to put little things on top of the shelving box – a defacto holding shelf for items that needed to go out to the garage or car. And, at some point in the last two years, I stopped asking when the shelf would be moved (forget used… that I never expected to see). I accepted that cardboard box as part of our kitchen decor.

So imagine my surprise when Hubby moved the box a few weeks ago!

Be Careful What You Wish For


I honestly forgot what the side of the freezer looked like! The shelf wasn’t set-up (of course), but that box now resides at the foot of the basement stairs!

Hey, baby steps. At least it is no longer in the kitchen.

This empty space lasted less then a day. I should have known something was up. No way was Hubby going to move a box that sat there for two years “bothering no one” according to him, without an ulterior motive.

This was what motivated him:

Be Careful What You Wish For


Yup, paint for his rentals.

This is definitely a case of be careful what you wish for! A box that sorta faded into the freezer-work (hey, wood-work made no sense), or 20 gallons of paint.

I never thought I’d miss the box.

Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita Review


Last week I reposted my Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita Review from last year, and I made mention that a Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita Review would be forthcoming… and here it is!

I really, really like Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Ritas, so I was extremely intrigued by Bud’s new product: Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita.

Bud’s Notes

Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita, an 8% alc/vol flavored malt beverage that blends the refreshment of Bud Light Lime with the taste of an authentic strawberry margarita. An 8oz serving of the 8% ABV version is 199 calories and has 23.6g carbs.

My Notes

I had a can of the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita three different times in the past two weeks so I could write this review up – and it wasn’t because I liked the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita, because I didn’t particularly. I kept giving it a go so I could figure out why I disliked it.

Poured, there is no head at all to the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita. It smells a bit like a strawberry, looks redish-pinkish in the glass, but it tastes like an artificial carbonated strawberry going down. This isn’t a good thing. It tastes nothing like a good strawberry anything to me, let alone a margarita.

To say I was disappointed in the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita is an understatement. I had such high expectations after the Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita, and was so looking forward to this product! Maybe that was the problem? My expectations were too high? I do know that while we will continue to buy the Bud Light Lime Lime-a-Rita, we will not buy the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita again.

Have you tried the Bud Light Lime Straw-Ber-Rita? What did you think?

As always, drink responsibly and please don’t drink and drive.

Try Something New – Thomas’ Corn Bagels

Try Something New - Thomas' Corn Bagels


Try Something New – Thomas’ Corn Bagels is a post I have been meaning to write for a number of months now. This past January I was shopping at a local grocery store and noticed that they had Thomas’ Bagels on sale B1G1. I gave a quick look for the flavors, and was ready to move on when the corn flavor caught my eye. It was “different” and so therefor intrigued me. I purchase a blueberry (which are still in the freezer), and a corn variety during that sale.

I swear I ate a corn bagel every day for six days until they were gone! Since I seldom eat breakfast, that will tell you something.

Thomas’ corn bagels are sweet. And this appeals to me. They do taste a tad like sweet corn, but nothing overpowering. They also smell good when toasting. They are a bit heavy in the stomach, and I am sure I could solve that problem by only eating half a bagel, but these are so good I don’t want to only eat half!

Each bagel has 280 calories, 9 total grams of sugar, 1 gram saturated fat, and 10 grams of protein.

When I decided to write about how much I enjoyed these bagels, I looked at the Thomas’ product page for more details. These bagels aren’t even listed!

Thomas' Corn Bagels


Here’s a picture of the bag I finished this week. These do exist! I asked on the Thomas’ facebook page for info on where they are available. Facebook was glitchy that day (shocker, I know) and I received the response of “in the northeast and…”

And where?

I asked Sonny-boy to retrieve the response on facebook for me, and he was baffled by what happened. Neither of us could read it, even though I had “liked” Thomas’. So, if you are interested in trying the Thomas’ Corn Bagels you don’t live in the northeast, ask on the Thomas’ facebook wall where they are sold. The response I got from emailing them was to see the product and locator page. Ummm yeah. Check your page people. That information isn’t there! This is a case where facebook is the best way to contact the company.

To recap: sweet, flavorful and delicious, although a bit heavy. Definitely worth a try!

Have you tried Thomas’ Corn Bagels? What did you think?
