secret talents...

I was so excited to be asked by Green Giant to share my secret/surprise talents.
But then I realized I don't actually have ANY secret talents!! HELP!

Current front runners:
- skilled pug photographer (I have 100's of pictures on my iPhone at all times of my "kids")
- master plate cleaner (thanks parents for that guilt trip!)
- winning blog giveaways (I have been on a rolllll lately!)
- supreme sleeper (I always say that I don't need a lot of sleep, but could literally sleep 22 hours a day given the chance, oh to be a pug)
- um, shopping.... can that be a talent??
 - I can wiggle my ears (SURPRISE!)
- organizing wizard (this one might truly be a real talent, cleaning/organizing/de-cluttering is my second favorite hobby, after shopping le duh)
Do you follow me on Instagram? Showcasing surprise talents daily!
Well, I might not have figured out my surprise talent yet, but Green Giant does has a Giant surprise for you - they now make veggie snack chips & I. am. obsessed. 
Confession: I don't like chips. 
Well, I didn't like chips - these veggie chips are great tasting, a healthy snack choice & totally changed my mind about chips. Like for real, for real!
I seriously took the sweet potato chips to work & tried to push them on all my co-workers #ChipPusher.

Wait, are you still caught up on "healthy snack" chips?
Yuuup, we are talking yummy sea salt + sweet potato chips made with real sweet potatoes, 14 grams of whole grain & less fat than regular potato chips (40 percent less fat than regular potato chips, ringing in at 10g per 28g serving)!
These lasted less than one day in our house! The pugs & le boyfriend attacked the "zesty cheddar" bag & I claimed "sea salt" sweet potato for myself! Back off pugs!
Do you have a surprise talent? 
You can share it on the Green Giant Facebook page (& check out the other amazing secret talents they have unearthed on their YouTube channel too!)
