We have tow-maters growing in our garden! (Sorry for the lame Cars reference, but I couldn't help myself!). Our squash and our cucumbers are also flowering and I am stoked about that. It is fun to watch our garden grow. Hoping and praying that the birds don't get them. But either way, I am learning … Continue reading Gardening Equations
Right now, my husband and I are sitting on the couch like zombies. He, starring at the computer screen looking over things like OE scores and labor costs from Chick-fil-A that I am sure he already knows. And me, starring at some corny Christmas catalogue I had previously made fun of, flipping through pages of … Continue reading Love and Lemons
Facebook: the time leech, the productivity zapper, the braggart's best friend, the modern day herald, the soap box, the trendsetter (of sorts), the bandwagon, the social network, and the thing we all love to hate (wait, that's Wal-Mart). Anyway, today I saw on Facebook something about posting things you are thankful for every day throughout the month of … Continue reading Let the thankfulness begin!
Around this time last year, I sat down at the kitchen table one morning to a bagel and shmear for breakfast. I felt queasy and didn't know why. Then the fog began to clear and I remembered there was a fun size Butterfinger sitting in my stomach. It was eight o'clock in the morning and … Continue reading One year of blogging, thirty years of Butterfingers, and a Happy Halloween
In a little over twelve hours I will be on a jet plane with my mom, my two year old son and my one year old son bound for California. Pray for us. It's not so much the flying I am worried about. It's all the eating, sleeping, pooping and playing that on a normal … Continue reading Serenity now…insanity later

WARNING: DO NOT GET INTO EYES, MAY CAUSE BLINDNESS DIRECTIONS: RINSE UNTIL WATER RUNS CLEAR As I am hanging my head over the shower trying to wash the toxins out of my hair, the water starts dripping down the … Continue reading Home hair highlighting kits: don’t try them at home
After the last post about my insatiable appetite for candy corns, I feel the need to give you an update. 1. I'm still alive and well. The candy corn didn't get the best of me. And while I do love all things sweet (even for breakfast) I do eat grains, fruits, dairy, meat…and oh yeah, … Continue reading Thanks Blogging Community, I am now addicted to my computer
It's candy corn season. Somebody stop me. Please. I will eat these things until my belly aches, my throat hurts and I am otherwise convinced I am slowly killing myself. Death by candy corns. Even worse than my possible comatose state or death caused by obscene amounts of sucrose, is this sobering statement about sugar: … Continue reading Somebody Stop Me!
Two weeks from today I will be running a half marathon in Sacramento, California!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! Just thought I should let you know. P.S. This is me after my nine mile run today. (I tried to make the Home Alone surprised face, but it was even lamer than this one). By the way, who would have … Continue reading It’s almost here…
Well, folks, I did it! I Ran a 10k yesterday morning 🙂 Didn't do as well as I had wanted to time-wise, ( 1:01:56) but I felt good! Could have pushed myself a little more, though my knees and hips were hurting. Gotta get used to the mileage. Now for a little break, and then … Continue reading Race Day!
