QT with My Family

I mixed some frozen berries and granola into my vanilla yogurt.  I think vanilla is my favorite flavor of regular yogurt.  It may not really contain less sugar, but to me, it tastes less sugary.  Just creamy and delicious! Down to the wire…  I made it over to the Museum of Science on the final […]


I love love love Nasoya’s cubed tofu when it’s mixed with pasta and vegetables.  I heated the tofu with a bit of sauce and green peppers while my gnocchetti pasta was boiling. Hmm, I wonder why it seems like I’m always cleaning..  Jared emptied his junk drawer to find the receipt for the space heaters […]

Stir Crazy

Fun Holiday Movie Quote: “Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not […]

Candle Cookies

I spent my lunch break at Star Market, hunting down the ingredients for all of the cooking I needed to do later tonight. I snacked on an apple when I got back from the store. And after reading Tweets about everyone’s chocolate cravings, I had to have some too! As soon as I got home, […]

Monday Surprise

Jared shattered a wine glass on the kitchen floor this morning.  So instead of using my time to make a smoothie, I spent it vacuuming up shards of glass.  Now the dog and barefoot boyfriend can walk safely in the kitchen.  I only had a few minutes to spare so I just grabbed a quick […]

Monday Night Football

I actually didn’t read most of your comments til after I had come back from the gym.  But I’m glad you all were pro-sauna because that’s the only thing I did.  […]

Simple Things

I decided to change things up while still sticking to my training schedule for my workout today.  I sat in the sauna for 10 minutes pre-workout to stretch and clear my head.  I tried to relax but it’s tough to shut off my thoughts.  My mind is full of chitter chatter, ideas and plans keep […]

Brief Interviews with Hideous Men

I read this quote on the blog Hop, Skip, and a Giant Leap.  I thought it would be great to keep it on my desk at work as a constant reminder never to give up on myself. When I got home from work, I started on dinner right away.  I made a frozen Pasta Medley […]
