Jamba Juice Junky

I have a confession to make… My name is Tanesha and I am a Jamba Juice Junky!  Ever since they introduced Jamba Juice to Houston, I have been a huge fan and would go occasionally as a treat to myself when I could afford it.  I am not a breakfast person and would be less than concerned if we got rid of breakfast all together.  So I have started having bi-weekly Caribbean Passion concoctions; I say concoction because I am allergic to strawberries ( a very crappy food allergy that I didn’t acquire until my early 20’s, along with an allergy to lemons and oats) and substitute the strawberries for pomegranate juice instead.  I have come to love ALL things pomegranate.  My addiction to my smoothies have gotten so bad that when I walk in the store, Nichole greets me by name and repeats my order long before I even open my mouth!  ” Hello Ms. Graham!  You want a Power Caribbean Passion, no strawberries, sub pomegranate and a waffle?”  I just look around shiftily and murmur, “Yes”. 

Am I a little ashamed of my addiction?  Yes, slightly… could I have chosen a worse thing to be addicted to?  Yup I could have!  So instead of cigarettes or any random assortment of vices, I chose the wonderful world of fruit.  There is just something magical to me about the combination of Passionfruit Mango Juice, Orange Sherbert, Peaches, Pomegranate Juice and Ice.  I always feel like one isn’t enough… so one day I got two of them and I was floating for the rest of the day. 

Now this is the perfect way to start my day!

I am a Jamba Juice Junky and this is the best way to start my day!

Blessings and Happiness

Don’t Stand So Close To Me… The Remix

Happy Sunday my Lovelies!

* Steps up to the mic, clears throat*

Excuse me everyone.  Can I have your attention please?

As is the norm on my weekends, I have had yet another encounter with John Q. Public that I have found disturbing and a bit irritating.  So at breakfast yesterday at Frank’s (anyone who has lived in Houston for any amount of time knows about Frank’s!), the new one on Westheimer between Kirkwood and Dairy Ashford, I ordered my usual; sausage and cheese omelet, half grits, half hash browns and biscuits.

Yes, I ordered it!  I was hungry and it was 10:30 am and over 14 hours since I had eaten last, so there!  So when our order came the waitress unceremoniously announced that they ran out of biscuits and asked did I want anything else… Read the rest of this entry »

So… I bring donuts and that makes me the bad guy?

So today, like most days, I brought Macie breakfast because otherwise she will be eating random things… like summer sausage and crackers or random produce that she pulles out of her purse. Out of the kindness of my dear, sweet little heart ( because I am a bubbly ray of sunshine coated in sweetness) I brought Shipley’s donut holes to share with the floor. For those of you who don’t know what Shipley’s is, it has to be the BEST donut place EVER!  So I send an email to my wonderful coworkers “Byler” and “Tandy” ( I have changed the names to protect the guilty) letting them know that I had brought treats. 

Me: I have donut holes @ my desk

“Byler”: You are evil…..down right evil.

Me: At least I brought holes rather than entire donuts…

“Byler”: Touché…

“Tandy” : Has the foolishness started already! I have already eaten (enough for the entire day).  Thanks though!

I thought my logic was sound, donut holes are smaller and therefore less fattening but still delicious!!  A few minutes after the above exchange, I hobbled ( I am having knee issues) over to their area and joked with “Tandy” about me being admonished for bring donut holes.  She told me that she was too through with my foolishness, ragged on me about my knee brace and sent me on my way, laughing the entire time!  I quipped that I was leaving anyway due to someone assaulting the snack machine, pouting and stomping off for good effect. 

So another day begins filled with laughter, random emails and fake pouting on my part.

Happy Hump Day Everyone!
