Secret Single Behavior

In season 4 of Sex and the City there was an episode where Carrie + Aidan {swoon!} move in together + Carrie complains she can no longer engage in her "secret single behavior".  I never really thought much of this until I entered singledom + rediscovered what it felt like to do exactly what I wanted, exactly when I wanted without having to consult anyone else.  I was reminded of this luxury last night after I had a really long day at work + decided to cancel my plans for the evening + retire to my apartment instead.  Little did I know the recipe for the perfect evening was waiting for me inside my mailbox when I got home.  Between the latest issue of US Weekly + my latest Netflix receipt, I was all set.  

Upon entering my apartment I immediately changed into my favorite yoga pants + my Dad's old Notre Dame sweatshirt, twirled my hair up in a bun + started on dinner.  This is where the secret part comes in....I secretly love eating honey nut cherrios for dinner + do so more than I'd like to admit.  When I first moved to NYC cereal was a great inexpensive option for dinner, but now I make more than enough money to eat whatever I want + still find myself craving it after a long day.  When dinner was "ready" I sat down at my kitchen table to eat + read {I use that term loosely} US Weekly, a task that can be completed in 20 minutes, tops!  After dinner I popped in my movie, crawled into bed with my pups + ate Tootsie Rolls for dessert as I watched "Into the Wild".  This time around I am savoring every moment of secret single behavior full well knowing it's not going to last forever.


Secret Single Girl Dinner

Grocery List

1 banana

Dry Goods

Game Plan
Add 2 cups of cherrios to cereal bowl + slice banana on top.  Add skim milk to taste, I prefer to add very little to keep cereal crunchy.  Best served with celebrity gossip or fashion magazine.
