strawberry jam // i won a cruise


GUYYYYYYYYYYYYYSS. look. it's strawberry jam!!!! I love strawberry jam, okay?? It's like summer..but with STRAWBERRIES, and sugar (WHICH I STILL CANNOT EAT *sobs*) cooked down to this amazing consistency. You slather it on bread, or over vanilla ice cream, OR just eat it on a spoon. okay guys, who am I fooling? I want sugar *walks away sadly*

got this phone call the other day -- "HEY IT'S JOSH FROM CUSTOMER SERVICE HERE - CAN YOU HEAR ME?" (he literally boomed his voice so loud)
*silence* -me
"ooooooooooohhhhhhhhkay. ( I think he was sad??) WELL you've just been chosen for the cruise --"
*hangs up phone and rolls eyes* "THAT'S LIKE ONE OF THE OLDEST JUNK CALLS -- EVER." -me

"ha. how about this one?" - then my dad mimics two guys talking on the phone
"Is your fridge running?" (1st guy)
 "yeeah" (2nd guy)
 "better go catch it!" - (1st guy) then my dad laughs 
*me: moans and walks away*

That's like one of the oldest Dad jokes ever.  lol.

    2. I have attempted cutting back a couple of times;)

      I did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did it Julia!!!!!!!!!!! I was so nervous, but once the time came it was more like someone was taking my hand and directing me and I was just like, "okay, okay. Yes, let's do it!" My arms were almost numb from nervousness when I reached the front of the auditorium. Ahhhhh..............

  2. Haha, I saw the title and I was like "You won a cruise?" I should have known because we get those calls all the time too. xD
    Homemade strawberry jam?! That looks so good! I feel so sorry for you that you can't have any! Hopefully your no-sugar thing is almost up. You are seriously brave to do that. ;)

    lol! Whenever we get toll free calls I pick up the phone and sing, "Hello again, its me!" (From Hello by Adele) then I hang up! I'm such a nerd, but being nerdy is fun. XD

    1. HAVE YOU TRIED IT?!! I can't wait to hear what you think!! Wait. you're on the no sugar thing too. *gasps* sorry... I FORGOT
      OMW. you do that?!?! You are a nerd! xD That's okay - the best of people usually are ;)

  6. That jam looks good! But, stay strong girl! Don't let sugar win. :) Haha, my no-sugar is okay... I cheated a couple of times. But on the whole, it's been good. And, (dare I say), I think a little bit of sugar every couple of weeks is more sustainable than complete restriction - for doing it long-term anyway.

    Aren't rubbish calls annoying?! Although, they do hold a lot of possibilities, if only I was game enough to try them out. Have you ever had a non-sale (or cruise, or whatever is is) related conversion with a junk caller?

    1. UUHGGG - BUT JESSICA ITS SO GOOD AND SO CLOSE AND SO FRESH AND SO YUMMY. PLEASE. Yes, I SO agree! Today was my cheat day. And I think I enjoyed it smartly. lol! I had homemade Take 5 bars, lemonade with frozen blueberries, and JAM. I did have that ;)

      Yessssssss!! :P I have not actually - have you? I tend to hang up because I just don't have the time to bother with them. LOL!

  7. No sugar is going pretty good :)!!! My sister and I are six days into it today. So far the only thing with sugar in it that I know I've eaten was pizza... our landlord came to fix the garbage disposal one night and we didn't have time to cook and get the sink cleared before he got there, so my Dad brought that home. Other than that, I'm actually enjoying it! My mom does eat low sugar already, so we have stuff like Stevia in the house, and that does make it easier. I made some coconut chocolate sweetened with that to keep on hand, and we have sooooo much delicous fruit in the house, because WE HAVE AN ALDIS HERE, woohoo!, and our landlord is so sweet, he brought a bunch of fruit over for us as a gift :).

  8. I would totally eat some of that jam!!! :O I WANNA COME TO YOUR HOUSE AND STAY FOR A FEW DAYS. XD (That should happen sometime... ;) It'd be totally fun. And I haven't had a sleepover in ages.)

    The sugar diet is going pretty well. Tomorrow was going to be the last day, but then we decided to stretch it for Friday (and splurge yesterday on a coffee and banana chocolate chip bread. XD OH. And we're going to a movie on Tuesday... So I'm having a soda. But HEY. We're extending the diet, so.. ;)) I have been missing my coffees, mostly, but then we got one yesterday and I was kinda like "this isn't as fun as I used to think". So, we're gonna get coffees less after we get off the sugar diet. ;) Hehe... Besides, we've been having homemade coffee (sweetened with honey and soy creamer - both which are good for you. Did you know coffee is beneficial for type A blood types? And soy milk!? So we're drinking super beneficial coffee. XD ;) I probably sound dorky, so I'm gonna go now...)

    1. YES COME OVER AND WE CAN BREAK THIS NO SUGAR THING TOGETHER!! but just for a day or two..cause I'm doing it again. lol!!

      woah - it is going good for you guys. :D I've only splurged on my Saturday - oh and yesterday I had a homemade cookie. THOSE THINGS GET ME OKAY? And besides, they have to have under 2 T in each cookie. RIGHT? :P I felt the same way when I tasted some sugary things!!! Like it wasn't even THAT good. Except for ice cream, that's always good. ;) Huh!! I didn't know that, but I think it's super cool. ;)

      My two weeks is up on Wednesday. Which is my mom's BD. AND I'M MAKING SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CHIP OREO CRUSTED CHEESECAKE. yup.

    2. Haha! I wish I could! :D Good on you! Doing it again!? ;)

      Well, thanks! OOOOH. Cookies are good when they're homemade. XD I WOULD THINK they have under 2T a cookie! Not sure though... ;) Ice cream IS good! Isn't it cool!? DRINK COFFEE, Julia! ;) Guess what I'm making when we get off the diet? A pumpkin pie shake! :O You put ice cream, pumpkin pie mix, soy milk, and graham crackers, etc. and...it looks good! I found the recipe on Pinterest!

      Oh! Perfect timing to get off! WOAH. That is a lot going on in a cheesecake! :O Totally tell me how it is!!! (My mom's birthday is on July 6th, so we're going to buy her a cake - with her favorite icing, buttercream - unless she doesn't want a cake. XD She hasn't said yet... ;))
