Friday Randoms V.10 (missed 8 and 9)

Dare I say it publicly on this blog that spring is starting to show up? I’m not totally convinced since we still have SO MUCH SNOW in our yard. But really, the weather is warm enough that the chill has left my body that has been there since December.  And for the first time this week, I have not slept in a sweatshirt burrowed in our bed under a huge down comforter.  And my kids actually got to play outside when we got home tonight. Please stay…



Food For The Week

Monday- Beef and Vegetable Stirfry (such an easy,healthy meal)

Tuesday- OUT (Glenn worked late so the kids and I indulged in Steak n Shake)

Wednesday- Tortellini and Garlic Bread

Thursday- Pork Chops and Risotto

Friday- Sushi and WINE

On a random food note, I have made it four full days with no snacking other than carrots and clementines and no sweets or dessert.  I LOVE (like really love) candy.  It is my crutch and go to when I am stressed, tired or bored.  I have craved it so much and have seriously had to walk away a couple of times from the jelly belly bowl.  It’s been really really hard. Here are the repercussions of this little experiment.

I have been starving at meal time.  (Like shoveling food in hungry.)

I have not had the mid-day sugar crash.

I actually didn’t drink my coffee Wednesday and survived.

I crave fruit because it is a sweet as it gets right now.

Not sure but I am guessing I have lost weight too.


Around the internet….

This article about how to use your camera. I am seriously struggling so reading this gives me a push to find a way to learn to use my camera 100% once and for all.  {edit- I used her settings and took a bunch of pics this afternoon and they are pretty darn good}

Did you see Apple’s announcement about the watch? I watch this and think it looks so cool but do I need it?

I think I want this bowl? I mean its genius for the amount of fruit that we go thru in our house.

Are you watching “The Jinx” on HBO? My husband is obsessed and this article is so interesting to me.

Glenn’s aunt sent me this about people who take gym classes.  Pretty funny. I do have my spot.  I am pretty loyal to my spot to be honest.  And, I always notice when the people around me are not around. Except true story- last night a lady farted right as she did a plank and just loudly said “sorry”.  So gross.

The park is calling our name.  The weather is supposed to be great. We have some things to get ready for spring break like new shoes and suits.  We have a house that needs some organizing.  We have the usual to do’s on a weekend with a 3.5 and 5.5 year old. Regardless of how busy we are, the weather makes anything possible.   And there are two littles who deserve some time from us. Happy Weekend peeps.
