A snowball's chance in hell...

This is what my Monday afternoon looked like.


I spied these evil little treats in the snack machine last week. I curse the snack machine guy. First the selection of honeybuns and now this. This. When I scurried back to my desk yesterday there were four more packs of this pink deliciousness calling my name...Kim, Kim, Kim. Hopefully this will not be what my Tuesday afternoon looks like because I won't be able to wear stuff like this.


Check out the fashion shoot- um I mean me and the camera in front of my long mirror. Actually these pictures are horrible and that mirror needs some Windex stat. I made a decision over the summer to try and thrift my entire winter wardrobe. I have been very successful in this endeavor. I wanted to show you my thrifty Ann Taylor outfit. Total- $4.50. The sweater was $1.50 at one thrift store and the skirt was $3 at another. I added my Target boots and Walmart belt and voila.

I promise not to take pictures like this again and to stay away from the snack machine. Yeah right, those Snowballs, well-don't have a snowball's chance in hell.

Have a great Tuesday everyone.

LOVE that outfit! And $4.50? Seriously lady, I need to go shopping with you! Ann Taylor is the BEST!

Wow...you're really styling it. I love the outfit but what's behind you in that photo?

Those are snowballs but they're not Hostess. Did they taste OK? Snowballs were featured in the movie, "Laws of Attraction" with Pierce Brosnan and Julianne Moore. She's all stressed out about something and runs to the women's bathroom and pulls a package of snowballs out of her handbag and stuffs them down her throat. It's a funny movie.

BTW, I love snowballs ..... and Twinkies!!!

How cute are you? LOVE that outfit.

And I try to forget there's a vending machine in our office basement. There's Hostess Cupcakes down there right now. Mmmmm.

That is too funny about the vendor man....I love swiss cake rolls and find that if allowed I could most likely eat the entire box myself. Thift stores rock! Hope your Tuesday is better..

Snowballs, Outfit and Sexy Bod!!! Priceless! I love them all.....By the way, do they have Zingers in that magic little vending machine?

Maybe, you can get the ol' store all lined up and sell great outfits like that, and fill the shelves with snowballs and zingers!!! I would shop there for sure (but you would have to have some clothes that are covered in sequins or gold lame'!!!!!!
