Today's Relax Week task included tearing myself away from the computer to take the puppies on a nice walk before work. I think they enjoyed being outside in the sunshine as much as I did! It was so nice and sunny out this morning, but now it's dreary and raining.  I'm glad I got to [...]


A Bittersweet Announcement

As you all know, I have a big and very close group of girlfriends from college.   This past Saturday, I received a phone call that no one wants to get.  One of our good friends has been diagnosed with cancer.  I was devastated.   She is always the life of the party.  The joker; the [...]


I’m a Tease!

I was totally LOL-ing when reading the guesses at what my big announcement would be.  Do you guys REALLY think that if I was going to be on Oprah that I could keep my trap shut for a whole 24 hours?!  But... some of you guessed correctly!  That's all I'm saying for now! :)   [...]


Big Announcement

I have a really big announcement to make tomorrow!   Can you guess what it is?   Hint: I'm NOT preggers! :)


Today has been a busy day filled with lots of delicious eats!  Mid-morning snack was a juicy plum: Lunch was leftover homemade veggie and potato soup + two mini pitas with melted cheese. I love homemade soup, don't you! For dunking.... My mid-afternoon snack (which I just ate) was Oikos Greek Yogurt and a crushed [...]


Relax Week!

It's going to be a GREAT week!   I know this because I've declared it RELAX WEEK.  Yes, I still have to work, but I'm going to do one nice thing for myself every single day to help me relax.  This morning I made time to put on a face mask and sent out e-mails [...]


Musings on Exhaustion

Around 11, I snacked on these lovely grapes and blackberries.  I just love fresh summer fruit! Then, the Husband and I walked the puppies to the gas station to pick up some change so we could clean out our cars.  It is SO hot in Florida right now, and we walked for about 1.0 mile.  [...]


Sugar Plum Fairy Oatmeal

I awoke from a deep sleep and found myself humming music from The Nutcracker!  My dreaming inspired this lovely bowl of Sugar Plum Fairy oatmeal: It was delicious! My oatmeal contained:   1/2 cup oatmeal 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup milk 1 sliced banana Toppings: 1 tablespoon flax, 2 sliced pieces of plum (warmed in [...]


A Beach Moment

The Husband and I decided to go to the beach today -- OK, we really just wanted to drive our new car somewhere fun!  :) Before we left, I had yogurt, a crushed Kashi bar, and blueberries: We didn't get to the beach until 4:00, which was fine by us.  My Hubby is a British [...]


Good Eats!

Good morning! I feel so ridiculously rested after getting a good night's sleep.  :)  I'm UP and ready to SIEZE THE DAY!   Last night I made a random quiche for dinner.  I had 1/2 a polenta log leftover and I wanted to somehow use it up: Cheesy Polenta Quiche (serves 4):   Ingredients:   [...]


I’m Becoming Nicer!

Whoa! What a day!  I've been up, down, and all around town today -- lots of exciting things happened, too!   First, I worked a half-day at my full-time job.  I snacked on grapes around 10:30: And at 12:00, I had yogurt, a crushed Kashi TLC bar, and blackberries.  I just wasn't feeling a "lunchy [...]


Pancake Party

Good morning!  This morning I hosted a super fun PANCAKE PARTY with Meghann and Megan. Meghann was at my place at 5:45 AM.  I wolfed down a piece of toast and PB with coffee as we gossiped and caught up on each other's lives. Then, we drove to meet Megan for a fun group run! [...]
