  1. Lots more laundry!
    But much less fabric!

  2. Haha! This is a great post! I especially agree with the one about the buffet.

    Even though I eat right and healthy, I still do enjoy pigging out at buffets once in a while.

  3. I actually eat the veggies at a buffet now and oddly enough still prefer the buffet because I can control what goes on my plate!

  4. Great post. You come up with the best stuff - thanks for always sharing and entertaining.

  5. I think about the buffet one all the time. I never want to go to one anymore because I feel like it's a waste of money!

  6. This is awesome, had me laughing the whole way through!

  7. I will take the pros, thank you very much! :) Great post!
