Whelp. Good morning.
Yesterday I taught a spin class along with a couple others.
Two new songs on my spin list you just have to add to your workout playlist are these:
Avacii- Wake Me Up (climbing with some pushes up the hill- add gear and climb out of saddle)
Michael Jackson- PYT (climb- lifts on chorus adding gear each time)
Said “sayonara” to the long day with a 5 mile treadmill run at the gym in my Wave Sayonara shoes. Thought they were the appropriate ones to wear. Ha.
Want to know a secret?
I wore that orange Handful Bra for over 30 hours.
This was me on Sunday wearing it.
Kept that thing on Sunday evening and then all of Monday. What can I say, it can go from an every day type of bra, to a comfy pajama one to a workout one. Gotta love that.
Speaking of, Handful has a new website now and some really great new colors coming out so be on the lookout.
So yeah, I should stop wondering why people don’t really want to hang out with us. Not only do I wear the same bra for 30 hours, but some of us like to go out and about as Buzz Lightyear.
It’s not like we cause a scene or anything when we go places.
We eat in the car a lot. There are quite a few crumbs in there at the moment. I don’t offer people rides that often because our car is, well, a mess. It’s embarrassing really.
I told STUFT Daddy I wanted a minivan. He told me the boys want a pony.
The boys’ current favorite snack bar for the road is this pumpkin one from Trader Joe’s.
My gourmet meals lately I’ve made for the family have looked a little like this.
We eat on paper plates. We shouldn’t because we run the dishwasher pretty much every other day, but we do.
Cassava “fries” and guacamole is the perfect combination with turkey burgers by the way.
Oh, and no one can ever eat the same thing. Even the boys like different things. One loves SunButter, the other hates all nut butters. One likes bacon, the other likes sausage.
One loves eggs, the other won’t touch them if there’s the tiniest speckle of pepper.
One loves candy. I mean LOVES candy.
So much so that yesterday my little guy hid his sandwich under the table and told me he was all done with lunch. I had told him he could have just one piece of candy if he finished his lunch. (Yes, I know you’re not supposed to do that, but sometimes you do what you have to do.)
Well, his brother spilled the beans and pointed out the uneaten sandwich on the ground.
“Mom, Joaquin didn’t eat all his lunch.”
Not okay. Where do they learn these things?
I made my confused superhero sit right by me and finish that darn sandwich. Obviously it went over really well.
I had a thought earlier today. Since eating too many roasted kabocha boats makes me turn orange, I wonder if eating too many purple sweet potatoes will make me turn purple.
With the many I’ve been eating, we’re bound to find out soon enough. Hmmmmm…
I’m sure I smell like garlic most of the time. I can’t tell, but my mom has let me know more than once.
It might be because of my obsession with this garlic from Trader Joe’s.
I’m too lazy to crush my own garlic, but this is good on anything and everything.
Last night it went on this.
I wonder if I smell like red pepper too. Can people smell spicy?
I usually burn everything. I got lucky last night though and all my pizzas turned out just right.
We do try to impress people though if we’re lucky enough to have some friends come over.
We show them our cool chicken eggs.
Oh heck yes those chickens are starting to lay eggs. We’ve been getting around 3 a day. It’s exciting stuff around here.
We also try to win people over with baked goods.
I’m totally not kidding. While I do burn thing a lot, I somehow can create some really darn great cookies.
I made the best PB2 Chocolate Chip Cookies again the other day.
Friends, these cookies are GOOD! You’ve really got to make them soon.
You know what else? We have a pretty cool fort outside. I heard that some secret stuff goes on down there and no girls are allowed, but whatever.
Okay, whelp, that’s it for now.
I’ll be back with my plantain cupcake. It’s about time, right?
And I have a couple things to give away before my big trip in a couple days. I should really start getting things together for that huh?
Have a great day!
If your kids like to wear costumes in public or throw their food on the ground and try to trick you and you want to tell me about it, please do. It will make me feel better.
Or if you’re guilty of wearing a sports bra a little too long.
