    Strawberry & Spinach Salad

    I rarely cook, but when I do? I make sure it’s worth eating.  Especially since I’ve been counting calories and doing this #spousefit challenge. Which I’ve lost 5lbs, by the way. Holla.

    Is there really anything worse than eating something that tastes like poo? I always get so frustrated when I do that because I think, “Uh, what a waste of calories.”

    There’s Snow In My Pants

    _MG_3428

    My days tend to be ordinarily pretty routine. I don’t like a lot of change when it comes to my exciting monotonous schedule. Throw in a kids doctors appointment or a bookkeeping meeting with my CPA…and my whole week is backwards.

    It’s wake up at 5:45 am, quickly throw my knotted nest of hair in the tightest ponytail possible, grab a sports bra, pop in the 21 day fix DVD, sweat and curse the insanely-fit-rock-hard-abs instructor making me doing 60 straight seconds of burpees followed by 60 seconds of weighted lunges…repeat, finish my 30 minutes of morning hell bliss, wake up the kids who aren’t already awake, jump in the shower – typically with a toddler in tow, dress myself…and each kid…even the seven year old HATES picking out his own clothes, make a healthy shake and breakfast for the kids – which tends to be a pop tart or microwavable pancakes – I keep it classy, rush out the door to take them all to school, come home, plop myself in front of the computer AND…..

    The Scattered Love Affair – 9 Things I Love More Than Fountain Coke

    If someone could be in my head for a mere two seconds, just two, they would hear this…

    Brain starts off with – “I’m going to paint the bathroom…. No, I think I’ll finish decorating the boys sports themed bedroom… Wait, I want to re-do that gallery wall… No, I NEEEEEED to organize the laundry room…”

    Which usually all turns into “I’ll hang a canvas print, run to the gas station for a fountain coke and then online shop for some new shoes.”

    I am the Wikipedia definition of “Scatter Brained”. Or as some would say, I have a lot of irons in the fire.

    Or a lot of ideas in my brain.

    Scatter Brained – The inability to produce any coherant thought pattern. Often a side effect of, but definitely not limited to, alcohol or drug consumption.

    Except I don’t drink or do drugs. Awesome.

    Being that it’s Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share with y’all a few things that I am loving. And yes, they vary from Iced White Mochas to giant canvas prints to my love for New Kids On The Block.

    Entryway Design Ideas - Gallery Wall by HouseofRoseBlog.com

    For a very long time I refused to replace the family canvas that was hanging in my entryway.

    It was old. Very very verrrrrry old.
