WIAW: I do what I want

My sister is 13 years younger than I am.

I can remember being roughly 17 (which would’ve made Aunt B around 4) when my “go-to phrase” was:

“I do what I want.”

Naturally, sweet, impressionable 4 year old Aunt B picked up on this phrase and began using it frequently. My mom was real happy about my influence. Also, Aunt B watched “Friends” at much too early an age, but what do you expect? She grew up around adults and teenagers exclusively.

As a mom, I look back and say, “what was I thinking?”

Regardless, my 17 year old catch phrase is somewhat useful these days – especially regarding food.


Breakfast: granola, berries, Greek yogurt, covered in almond milk. Yes, I cover dairy yogurt in non-dairy milk.

I do what I want.



Lunch: Date with a friend, food that was almost too pretty to eat, but I’m so glad I did! Beet salad and carrot coconut curry soup.

In this case, I didn’t do what I wanted to because I could’ve eaten 2 more bowls of this amazing soup.


Dessert: Chai tea latte. Hot. Because even though it’s summer, I’m still always cold.

I do what I want.


Snack: 1/4 of a watermelon. Here I’m showing you what was left of the full Tupperware after I was done with it. Yes, yes, I used to hate watermelon. I can’t explain my change of heart, I just…you know, do what I want.


Dinner: unpictured salad, WW spaghetti, marinara, 1/2 slice garlic bread with the fam.

And then I verbally judged Matty B for eating a lemon doughnut for dessert.

He does what he wants. He learned from the best.
