Survival

Hi guys. It’s been a while. I am too lazy to go back and look and see when I last posted a blog. It’s been a while. This is also not some triumphant return, or a grandiose statement about how you will get two posts a week from now til FOREVER. I am doing this…

“I Am Not a Sauce Man”

So, tonight what I want to do is lay in bed and watch “Black-ish” for the 4th time through. This week has been such a blur that as I was loading the dishwasher earlier I honestly couldn’t even remember one dinner we had this. How did all these dishes get in the sink? When did…

March Favorites

Hello everyone! Yes, I know I have been missing for about a month. March was crazy for all kinds of reasons. It got off to a wild start with my son’s birthday and all the pizza making PTSD I experienced, and then it was a steady tornado of nuts from there. As a teacher, the…

Sorry, Not Sorry.

Ok folks, buckle up. I am putting it all on the line today. Today’s post is about P-A-R-E-N-T-I-N-G! The other night I read the cutest blog post. I wish I could remember where I saw it, and maybe someone can help me out. It was written by a mother that was obviously done raising her…

Party on Plan – Pizza and Donuts!

Alright, this is the post I have been meaning to write for days. My son turned 7 on Saturday and we had lots of different occasions with visitors and party guests. I made 6 pizzas from scratch, dough and sauce, in addition to 32 donuts. I was exhausted but it was SO worth it. I…

Belly Flopping into March.

Well look who gave herself the weekend off from blogging! Haha, yeah right. I had hoped to have time to write all weekend, but we celebrated my son’s birthday for two full days and I literally fell into bed every night and couldn’t even look at this iPad. It’s a shame too, I made so…

Sometimes You Just Need a Cheeseburger!

5 posts ago, when this blog was born, I warned you that I love food that seems like junk food, but is low in Weight Watchers points. I am on week 4 of WW and I have come up with some things that really satisfy my need for comfort food and keep me well within…

“Rabbit, Rabbit”

When I was a little girl, I enjoyed reading The Baby Sitters Club Little Sister series. I could read more than one book in a day and I think that may have been what was so attractive about it to me. Bragging rights, you know? “I read 3 novels today,” that sort of thing. Anyway,…

I’m Just Gonna Shake, Shake, Shake…

The diet and food magazine, blogs, and experts have always said that eating a good breakfast sets you up for a good eating day all around. Well boy were they right! I had never put a lot of stock in that kind of thing and then today I leapt off my shake-y routine and landed…

Makeup, Murder, and McDonalds

Hello Wednesday! Teaching gets me up really early in the morning. As the year progresses, it gets harder and harder for me to get up at 5am. I don’t hate mornings though. My husband and kids leave later than I do, so I am allowed a peaceful hour or so to get myself together before…
