A Wonderfully Random Morning

in All Posts

I had an interview with a Croatian TV station about Operation Beautiful this morning via Skype.   The most glorious thing about Skype is that all you have to do is fix your hair and put on a nice shirt.  IÒ€ℒm wearing sweatpants on the bottom. πŸ™‚

After the interview, I skyped with Michelle for a while.  She got to meet the dogs and the Husband.  ItÒ€ℒs so cool that I can connect with blog friends in Australia, too!


The world gets smaller every day!


The Husband didnÒ€ℒt have class today, so we are both working in the home office.  It gets a little crowded when there are two of us here, but I like it!  He is preparing to take his medical board exams (which are crazy expensive, by the way).  The Husband was looking through old pictures trying to find a headshot for the application when he stumbled uponÒ€¦.


A VERY old picture of us!  WeÒ€ℒre 19 years old in this picture.  ItÒ€ℒs from the first night we hung out together. 


I thought he was so cool.  I was not.  πŸ™‚




I made a yummy hot goat cheese and cucumber sammie:


Plus a spinach salad:


And 1 cup of Butternut Squash soup from Wolfgang Puck:


And a 1/2 serving of POM Wonderful blueberry juice:


Whew!  That was quite a random post.  :)  My life is random, what can I say?

  • Mary @ Fit this girl October 28, 2009, 1:21 pm

    Does your computer have to have a camera in it to use skype?? MY Brother is in Germany and I would love to start using it! Great pic by the way!!

    • Adrienne October 28, 2009, 5:09 pm

      Hi Mary! No you don’t need a camera, you can just talk without pictures. More fun with a camera though!

  • Shannon, Tropical Eats October 28, 2009, 1:21 pm

    What a fun pic!!! That’s too cute.

    Lunch looks yummy!

  • Runeatrepeat October 28, 2009, 1:22 pm

    You two are very cute!
    I didn’t meet my hubs that long ago so we don’t have any cute pics like that. Keep them safe πŸ™‚

  • megan October 28, 2009, 1:24 pm

    I love to see old pictures like that. You should do what Meghann did and try on your old high school dance dresses :)Sometimes I wonder if it’s weird that I know so much about your life and I’ve never met you. Then i get over it and read the next post.

  • Marina October 28, 2009, 1:25 pm

    I just can’t believe you had the interview with someone from my country!I’ll definitely watch that!

  • Sara October 28, 2009, 1:28 pm

    I Love looking back at old pictures! my boyfriend and I met around 19 too so there are some scary looking pictures from back then πŸ™‚

  • Whit October 28, 2009, 1:30 pm

    I adore, repeat, adore, that old photo. πŸ˜€

  • Juicy Jessy October 28, 2009, 1:35 pm

    must be so nice to be able to be both working from home together!
    and the picture is cute, you didn’t change all that much I think!

  • Mama Pea October 28, 2009, 1:38 pm

    If only carpooling was like Skype. I got dirty looks for my yoga pants and flip flops today πŸ™‚

  • kirsten October 28, 2009, 1:40 pm

    I love that old picture-too funny!

  • Sammi October 28, 2009, 1:43 pm

    Gotta love tricks like that! It is so cool that you’re getting your message out to people so far away!

  • Jenna October 28, 2009, 1:44 pm

    glad you like skype!
    your lunch looks simple but delicious πŸ™‚

  • brandi October 28, 2009, 1:45 pm

    that old picture of you two is so cute!

    Yeah, SKype is great. We’ll be talking to my sister and her husband in Spain friday night! I’m excited.

  • Lauren October 28, 2009, 1:50 pm

    Lunch looks simple but great!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) October 28, 2009, 1:51 pm

    Skype looks great. One day we’ll use it. Right now we don’t have a webcam though so it will have to wait. But I had to giggle at your first photos. I’ve totally done stuff like this before when taking pictures.

  • Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) October 28, 2009, 1:56 pm

    Love random posts! Keep ’em coming!

  • ashleigh October 28, 2009, 2:01 pm

  • Matt October 28, 2009, 2:03 pm

  • Lizzy October 28, 2009, 2:08 pm

  • alli October 28, 2009, 2:09 pm

    a few weeks ago my dad sent me a text to see if we could chat via skype. i didnt know what it was! haha! i’m a little slow…..

    ps: are you feeling better?
    i got this in an email and thought i’d share the link:


  • Chelsea (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) October 28, 2009, 2:36 pm

    Sweet picture!

    Also, that’s a sweet, refreshing looking lunch! I will have to remember to pick up goat cheese and cucumbers on my next shopping excursion…

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite October 28, 2009, 2:43 pm

    I love college pics… so much fun!

  • One Healthy Apple October 28, 2009, 2:46 pm

    Love the picture of you two- you look so young!

  • Ali @ Food, Fitness, Fashion October 28, 2009, 2:51 pm

    Cute picture!!! I used to use skye all the time when I talked to applicants in other countries (I used to be a college Admissions counselor) it is really cool!

  • Jenny Eastwood@ JennyLikesToRun, On a mission to run a marathon to fundraise for The Breast Cancer Foundation October 28, 2009, 2:53 pm

    awwwwwwww cute picture of you and your husband! You look so different! And it’s funny to me that he’s got a beer in his hand haha.
    You are so right, skype is AMAZING.
    I live in New Zealand and I use it to keep in touch with my Italian exchange brother in Italy πŸ˜€ AMAZING! Technology is truly incredible.

  • Anne Marie@ New Weigh of Life October 28, 2009, 3:00 pm

    I love the picture of you and your hubby! It’s adorable!

  • Ellen Collis October 28, 2009, 3:30 pm

    It always amazes me how you make even the most basic things look so delicious and pretty. I’ve read that making your food visually appealing is very important. Do you think that’s true? If so, why??


    • Caitlin October 28, 2009, 3:33 pm

      well its important for me because i take pictures πŸ™‚ hehe but i do think its important for everyone. food should be savored and enjoyed, not shoved rapidly into your mouth.

  • Evan Thomas October 28, 2009, 4:04 pm

    I think randomness is one of the best parts about life

  • Gabriela October 28, 2009, 4:13 pm

    Congrats on the interview! I love finding old pictures, too…I’m 19 now, I wonder if I already have a pic with my future husband? Hmmm, scary thought…

    Enjoy the rest of your day!

  • Monica October 28, 2009, 4:21 pm

    Awww… Look at your baby face! You look so young! I must say–I think I favor the husb with his scruff!

  • Diana October 28, 2009, 4:21 pm

    That’s awesome. πŸ™‚ Maybe we can chat sometime through Skype ahah
    Aw, that old photo is so cute! πŸ™‚

  • Angela (Oh She Glows) October 28, 2009, 4:55 pm

    haha best post ever! ‘I thought he was so cool’ lol. I’ll have to put a few up of Eric and I…I was just 17! A wee baby!

  • Shelley October 28, 2009, 5:27 pm

    I liked this post πŸ™‚ very cute! you have a very inspirational blog.. hope you’ll check mine out!


  • SweetiePotato October 28, 2009, 5:29 pm

    haha I love the old pictures… some of them make me cringe though!

  • Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries October 28, 2009, 6:15 pm

    Haha I love your skype dress code πŸ™‚

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) October 28, 2009, 6:24 pm

    Haha you crack me up.. my life is super random too so I can relate!

  • Caroline October 28, 2009, 6:31 pm

    I enjoy reading your blogs! They make me happy, and the food photos inspire me to eat healthier!

  • Eating Journey October 28, 2009, 7:16 pm

    I would like to state that I don’t normally look like I am 15 years old and that isn’t my poster.

    It was so fun meeting your little family. I want to cuddle your little dogs..they’re too cute.

  • Caroline October 28, 2009, 8:11 pm

    I love the random posts. I also like seeing old pictures, you guys are so cute! My boyfriend and I have been together the better part of the last 11 years (I am only 25) and we have so many pics like that. It’s so nice to have known someone that long πŸ™‚ I also have to comment on your hot goat cheese and cuc sammy. I love that because it’s such a summery type of sandwich but heating it makes it appropriate for me here in Boston during the colder months. Thanks for the idea!

  • maria October 28, 2009, 8:40 pm

    Skype is so amazing, isn’t it? You can keep in touch and it’s FREE! The husband and I would die without it. It’s how we keep in contact with family. And we don’t have a home phone in Japan, just cells, so we pay six bucks a month and can call any line in the U.S for free! Totally worth it!

  • Emily Eats and Exercises October 28, 2009, 8:53 pm

    That hot goat cheese and cucumber sammie looks yummy. Two of my favorite ingredients…
    My former roommate had a long distance boyfriend in Norway – Skype was their best friend.

  • Rosey Rebecca October 28, 2009, 9:32 pm

    Love that old picture of you! You looked so cute! You look so pretty in the Skype pictures! πŸ™‚

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) October 28, 2009, 9:44 pm

    Ahhh cute picture of you two!!

  • Erin October 28, 2009, 10:05 pm

    I seriously love old photos – especially of couples from way back when. So super cute.

    And I agree with other commenters, randomness is the spice of life!

  • Stacey October 29, 2009, 6:58 am

    Haha. I LOVE finding old pics!!! Jas and I have this one from the first night we hung out together and I’m always amazed at how different we both look and ARE πŸ˜€ time flies when you’re in love hehe

  • Carolyn October 29, 2009, 9:51 am

    What a colorful plate!! P.S. I am giving away two breast cancer awareness prize packs on my blog: http://lovinlosing.com/.
