Holy moly (in Andy’s words). What a long ass recipe title and what a weekend. If you followed along on Snapchat and Instagram, you know what I am talking about. If not, ummm, why aren’t you following along on, like, the one weekend a year I go out with my gal pals???? I understand. I am sure you live a more exciting life than me so you didn’t want to see all the over drinking and over eating I did all weekend long in my beautiful Chi town. (Recap post coming soon). [Read more…]
It’s about that time in the post pregnancy phase of life in which I come to realize that all the benefits that come from carrying a baby, i.e. beautiful thick hair, clear skin (and for me, weight loss), have sadly come to an end. The move into the new house kept me preoccupied for a while. But we have many mirrors in this house so I can no longer avoid my own reflection. Big old chin zit. Great. Oh boy, is that the start of a bald spot or receding hairline on the right side of my head? I am 100% sure I am not carrying a baby currently, but that looks like the start of a food baby/beer belly. Ugh!
I have to admit, I did notice this a few weeks ago. It was like I didn’t want to admit it was happening though. I then started to do this weird kind of reasoning with myself. Tell me if you have said some of these things to yourself recently. [Read more…]
Well, we are officially home owners. Signed all the papers on Monday. Have I packed a thing yet? Nope! We aren’t moving until the first weekend in June, so I guess I have time. Time. Time to sit here and think of all the things that we need for the house. Time to sit and think about all the money we don’t have to pay for said items in new house. Cue the freak out. Is home ownership really all it is cracked up to be? [Read more…]
The weird thing about this past week was that I felt like each day individually dragged on, but the week as a whole I felt flew by! Is that weird. I had to double check with Mike that yesterday was really Thursday because it still felt like Tuesday to me. I really think that life-wise, I got a lot done this week. I donated a lot of unused kitchen stuff, 2 big boxes worth. Even though, I was so proud, and went to show Mike the contents of the cabinets and he goes, “Looks the same.” Um, thanks a lot buddy! (Replace buddy with your fave expletive). [Read more…]
What do you guys do when your hypothetical well runs dry? (FYI I really wanted to use the word hyperbolic there but thought that Mike, my English teacher husband/editor in chief would totally laugh at me trying to sound like a smarty pants but totally getting it wrong). When you need a recharge or regroup, what do you guys do? Normally every two weeks, I hit up the nail salon for a little no chip manicure. Just an hour away from the day to day juggle seems to clear my head and fix a bad mood. This month, that is not really doing the trick. So, I need new ideas. [Read more…]
