        I’ve been there! I love the T-shirt and you look so slim in it. Are you keeping totally fit with just yoga now? I can’t seem to remember seeing any posts about running, biking or weight lifting for a while.

    Oh my – that place is like my heaven. We have a candy store in the town I live in and it’s seriously always me and like ten 8 year old kids in there. It feels pretty awesome. Haha.

    jenna, i really like your current hair looks so natural and really brings out your eyes! I always automatically go darker in winter when I dont get highlights… I think you need to give your hair a rest sometimes!

    Be careful! I broke one of my beautiful teeth eating a piece of soft, delicious taffy! It was only my second chew in and I heard a big crunch … pulled the piece of tooth out of the taffy … I was on vacation and had to have the missing chunk/hole in my tooth filled in by my dentist when I got home! I had just bought a TON of taffy too … in all these amazing flavors and it taunted me the rest of our vacation! I told my dentist they could make a killing if they had a big bowl of taffy on their receptionist desk for their clients!!

        What an awful thing to happen – especially on vacation!

        Chew carefully, Jenna!

        I KNOW! Who knew that strong, healthy teeth can just break off chewing some soft taffy? I was completely shocked. We were on vacation for my birthday, too! I just kept having nightmare visions of having to have a ridiculous root canal over a piece of taffy or that they wouldn’t be able to save the tooth because of how it broke and I’d have to get a bridge or an implant, etc … luckily, my dentist was able to just fill in the hole with some bonding tooth material – Phew! He said he sees people in his office all the time who have broken their teeth or usually broken a crown or filling eating taffy or chewy caramels. Licorice taffy is my FAV … love rootbeer, cinnamon, peppermint and banana too! I love how with the first few chews, you keep getting a burst of chewy, delicious flavor! Bruce’s Candy Kitchen in Cannon Beach, Oregon (on the Coast) has AMAZING taffy, if you are ever in that beach town.

      seriously?? well, thank you…I feel like there’s always something going on with my skin but I’m glad the iphone photo didn’t capture that. I just use bare minerals make-up and neutrogena products!

      • Jen
        October 25, 2011 at 3:59 pm

            Thank you. I usually buy Neutrogena but just whatever is cheapest usually (not the higher-end stuff in the packaging!).
