Ginger Cats 4 Life.


Today was a day filled with speaking engagement preparations, book-proposal-preparations-slash-pounding-my-forehead-against-coffee-table, and secretary moonlighting at the clinic.  You know. The usual.


And dinner was literally [healthy] fast food.  The “nothing in my fridge sounds good” trend from lunch definitely continued into dinner.


I made myself and the Husband a burrito and grabbed us each a pear to sustain us through an evening appointment.


In the mix:  pinto refried beans, corn salsa, and spinach. 


And instead of actually being productive while I sat behind the secretary’s desk, I read baby blogs and cried hysterically at heart-tugging birth stories. 


Then I came home and ate cereal.


Side note: I do not know why my forehead appears to be orange.  Perhaps I am turning into a Ginger Cat.


I’m in a weird mood tonight!

    Awww what baby blogs do you read?

  • Sandy November 1, 2010, 9:13 pm

    You are SOOO getting preggos soon. I highly recommend it. You will never be “ready” to have kids–you just do it. I had mine first my second year of law school a week after exams.

    baby blogs? Where are these? I need to get on them stat!!!

  • Amy November 1, 2010, 9:13 pm

    Crying at birth stories huh? Any baby plans in the near future?! 😉

  • Regina November 1, 2010, 9:14 pm

    baby stories eh. Baby fever perhaps? Or is there a lil’ one already growing?!

  • Dana November 1, 2010, 9:14 pm

    Cereal is SOO GOOOD!!! best dinner

  • Whitney November 1, 2010, 9:15 pm

    Ok, baby blogs??? We need an explanation!

  • hemp jogger November 1, 2010, 9:17 pm

    i LOVE those ‘weird mood’ nights/days. i have no clue why, but sometimes its nice to feel like someone else is in your body or head and feel all loopy doopy. i really like those days, too, where you finish up, and think, ‘did today happen?’ …like the head is unattached.

  • Hope November 1, 2010, 9:18 pm

    OMG your shoes are soooo super cute!!
    Baby blogs? I totally do that too! Or I google baby names…even though we have no kids and will not have kids for another year or so!

  • hippierunner November 1, 2010, 9:18 pm

    Ack, how dare you be so coy! Baby blogs??? Cereal??? Lol.

  • Allie (Live Laugh Eat) November 1, 2010, 9:20 pm

    Hahahah “ginger cats 4 life”

    ….and that is why I love you.

    • Wei-Wei November 1, 2010, 10:19 pm

      D-to-the-itto. (y)

  • Sarah @ Sarah's Shaping Up November 1, 2010, 9:21 pm

    LOVE ginger cats!

  • K November 1, 2010, 9:24 pm

    You’re pregnant!

  • Camille November 1, 2010, 9:25 pm

    Wait, why is everyone saying you are pregnant!? Are you pregnant!?
    I’m so confused/excited!

  • Karen @ Not Just Celery November 1, 2010, 9:25 pm

    I love all things ginger so I will have to try those ginger cats next time I go to TJ’s. I wish I had a better one to go to – the one in Union Square in NYC literally has a line that wraps around the entire store no matter what time of day you go. Maybe next time I go back to CT I’ll stop and pick some up 🙂

    PS love your shoes in the cereal pic!

  • Julie November 1, 2010, 9:27 pm

    To all above, preggo is not likely — she just ran a (hard) marathon!

    • Caitlin November 2, 2010, 9:52 am

      Ding ding – you win!!!

  • Jamie @ Food in Real Life November 1, 2010, 9:29 pm

    Hope you’re not getting sick! Take some extra vitamin C! When no food sounds good, I usually think I’m getting sick. Today, everything sounds good to me. I’ve been starving all day!

  • tina November 1, 2010, 9:29 pm

    your dinner looks yum!

  • Anne @thefitbridesmaid November 1, 2010, 9:30 pm

    Isn’t the hubby a ginger kid? Maybe it’s catching!

  • erin fugal November 1, 2010, 9:37 pm

    hahahah, you baby blog stalker. that’s funny, totally something i’ve done and no longer do because i have my own babies. i hear the pitter patter of little feet in your future 😉

    • Clare November 2, 2010, 7:22 am

      TO-tally. I remember watching endless episodes of “the baby story” when I was pre-baby with our first. Now, strangely, three babies-later I have no interest whatsoever 😉

      • Caitlin November 2, 2010, 9:52 am

        kind of like when i buy a house, i will not want to watch House Hunters anymore?

  • holly @ couchpotatoathlete November 1, 2010, 9:40 pm

    Baby blogs??? I’d be bawling just reading them. Babies are the best 🙂

    Enjoy your night!

  • Cyndi @ Weightless Life November 1, 2010, 9:40 pm

    You are what you eat, right?

  • Teacherwoman November 1, 2010, 9:47 pm

    weird moods are fun!

  • brigit November 1, 2010, 9:51 pm

    Love ginger cats! A few days after you wrote about them the first time I was driving around the town I just moved to and happened to find a tjs…turns out ginger cats are my horses favorite treat!

  • Katie @ Healthy Heddleston November 1, 2010, 9:51 pm

    umm I love your shoes 🙂

  • Marie-Journey to Body Zen November 1, 2010, 9:51 pm

    Love your skirt!

  • Carlee November 1, 2010, 9:52 pm

    Oh your so cute! I love weird moods! hehe

  • Shanna, Like Banana November 1, 2010, 9:59 pm

    Ginger cats are superb! It’s cuz TJs rock!

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine November 1, 2010, 10:01 pm

    Hahaha I love this post- we’re all weird sometimes (okay, most of the time in my case). And I was reading your tweets and procrastinating right along with you with birth stories. My biological clock needs to stop telling me I’m old enough to have children.

  • Maggie November 1, 2010, 10:34 pm

    I love your leopard shoes!

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss November 1, 2010, 10:42 pm

    Mmmm cereal 🙂 I’ve been craving a bowl all day but am out of milk. Yogurt’s been doing a good job, but it just isn’t the same! haha

  • Balanced Healthy Life November 1, 2010, 10:51 pm

    Cute shoes, I think I have the same ones! : )

  • Krystina (Organically Me) November 1, 2010, 10:51 pm

    Your ginger cat obsession is adorable. 😛

  • Nicole @ yuppie yogini November 1, 2010, 10:53 pm

    James will eat you if you become a Ginger Cat.

  • Sana November 1, 2010, 11:06 pm

    I feel like you should elaborate on the weird mood! I am always in a weird mood, but I am also super weird 🙂

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) November 1, 2010, 11:25 pm

    I love those Ginger Cat Cookies! Where do you buy them? They are too cute! 🙂

  • Annie November 2, 2010, 12:16 am

    Oh my goodness! Reading the questions ^^ about a possible future baby (yes, no, yes no!?) just makes me happy. You’ll make a wonderful mommy some day.

    And I get so emotional reading about little ones or watching any old TLC show. Seriously. Don’t even get me started about walking past baby clothing in stores. 🙂

    Last, your outfit is beautiful!

  • Amber from Girl with the Red Hair November 2, 2010, 12:18 am

    Haha I love your sense of humour 😉

  • Crystal November 2, 2010, 1:42 am

    I love birth stories! I stalk the birth stories forum on MDC all the time. Now I just need to get around to writing mine.

  • maya @ finding balance in tokyo November 2, 2010, 3:34 am

    I’ve also been having the ‘nothing sounds good’ problem with my fridge lately. Maybe it’s a seasonal thing?

  • Tabitha (From Single to Married) November 2, 2010, 7:35 am

    I cry at baby blogs too. Btw – is there something you want to tell us? (perhaps I missed it somehow?) 🙂

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) November 2, 2010, 8:03 am

    It may be the pumpkin…ha, ha…my palms and the bottoms of my feet turn orange during the pumpkin season, but I don’t care…I just love it that much!

  • Verna November 2, 2010, 8:13 am

    I loved reading birth stories before my son was born! Haha!

  • Nikki M. November 2, 2010, 8:35 am

    I know exactly what you mean! I’ll watch a Baby Story and cry during the delivery EVERY time! It’s almost embarrassing now 🙂

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) November 2, 2010, 8:52 am

    That’s pretty good for fast food! Love that your meals are on the go, but can still be healthy and veg:)

  • Rachel @ EatMoreMeatLess November 2, 2010, 9:03 am

    Burrito sounds great! I need to buy some refried beans 🙂

  • eml November 2, 2010, 9:05 am

    Baby blogs? Would you like one in the future?!

    Good luck with the book proposal situations – sounds intriguing!

    • Caitlin November 2, 2010, 9:51 am

      one day!

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) November 2, 2010, 9:08 am

    Your shoes are absolutely adorable! Love ’em! 😀

  • Jess November 2, 2010, 9:41 am

    I just found out that I’m pregnant yesterday! I can’t stop reading baby blogs. I’m dying to tell people but my hubby and I decided to wait until Christmas time when I start my 2nd trimester…but cyber people, that’s ok. I just won’t link back to my blog. 🙂

    • Caitlin November 2, 2010, 9:50 am

      CONGRATS 🙂 🙂

  • Emily November 2, 2010, 9:56 am

    Hey Caitlin! CUTE SHOES!!! 🙂

  • Melissa @ For the Love of Health November 2, 2010, 9:56 am

    love the burritos
    I understand the weird mood—I’m there often

  • Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) November 2, 2010, 10:19 am

    I adore baby/mommy blogs and I’m not pregnant (this freaks Hubbs out, but oh well :))

    enjoy! 🙂

  • Jennifer November 2, 2010, 10:22 am

    LOVE your leopard shoes!!!

  • Amber K November 2, 2010, 10:32 am

    Totally turning into a ginger cat 😉

  • Ellen@FirednFabulous November 2, 2010, 1:30 pm

    You should be a Ginger Cats spokesperson 🙂 I feel like I totally NEED them in my life…now!

  • Rachel S November 2, 2010, 5:32 pm

    I’m still in college and I LOVE watching baby shows on TLC! I always tear up!

  • katie November 2, 2010, 7:45 pm
