Members Only

My name is Elizabeth and I like to join clubs.

In pre-school, I was part of a very exclusive club where we only wore skirts and dresses and chased boys on the playground.

In elementary school, I was obsessed with The Babysitters Club, even naming all of our pets after the characters and secretly HOPING I'd get diabetes so I could be like Stacey - the prettiest one.

Middle School, High School, and College are literally a BLUR of clubs.

Now, I'm in a Book Club, a Weight Loss Club (or seven), the Junior League (which is also a CLUB), etc. etc.

And... my newest club...

The Frosty Club.

Nope, it has nothing to do with cold weather.  It is a club dedicated entirely to fast food consumption...

Jeff came home last night with a "treat" for me.  He said it was to support my latest resolution and efforts (i.e. Operation Spandex & Boots).  Ha!

The "treat" involves a free Frosty EVERY time I visit a Wendy's in Southwest Virginia.  He even had a very cute Frosty-shaped scanner tag for my key-chain, which even I have too much pride to actually carry.


I told him I wouldn't join, but who am I kidding? I've been waiting for this all my life...


I couldn't resist this photo... It is just TOO appropriate.

  2. AH! Brittany and I were in Wendy's yesterday too! The lady asked me if I wanted to join and I quickly said no, not really listening to the question. After paying I read the sign and I said, dang it! That's too good to be true! So you should carry that keychain proudly :)

  4. Elizabeth- I found your blog from one of your facebook status' and have been reading it for awhile and always enjoy it! I had to comment about your babysitters club phase because I went through the exact same thing! I tried out every character for a week or two! I think I was Claudia for the longest! I got to eat junk food and be artsy and cool!

    Bono, I'm sorry. Jeff never gives you credit. :)

    Laura, if you are still remiss about not getting your very own Frosty key-chain, let me know... I think I have an extra! ;)

  9. I totally relate to the BBC comment. Stacy did make diabetes look rather glamorous didn't she?! I too am in the Junior League...in North Houston, and I'm a teacher. Great to find your blog! Have a great day!
