I have a confession. It’s terrible and horrible and I can hardly believe it myself. I used to hate guacamole. I know, it’s insane to think anyone could hate guacamole. Long ago in a land far away I used to hate a lot of things I now love. Onions, tomatoes, avocados, Brussels sprouts were all on the list. Now, I eat every one of those on a daily basis almost, no lie. Continue reading
For the second year in a row, my husband claimed temporary insanity and completed his second half Ironman in Galveston. For those of you that don’t know, a half Ironman is a triathlon for crazy people and a whole Ironman is a distance for sadists. Basically the half is 70.3 miles consisting of 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and a 13.1 mile run, double that distance for a full. In all honesty, I am very proud of Doug for completing it again this year and my hats off to anyone who goes through that kind of test. I know he’s still considering doing a full in the next year even though as soon as he has crossed the finish line each year he’s said “never again”.
Don’t have a lot of time to prepare and cook a healthy dinner for your family on weeknights? I know exactly how you feel. I am all about quick and easy meals during the week. When I come home after a long day at the work and then a quick stop at the gym, I don’t want to spend another hour in the kitchen. I started making this Turkey Black Bean Chili a few months back and it’s become a household favorite. OK, so just Doug and I…but one day Kirkley will appreciate it too. Speaking of…go read my previous post and comment away. I could use more input (and feel like less of a loser).
Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Do anything exciting?? It was beautiful weather here in Texas finally. We aren’t used to cold weather into late March. I know you Northerners are rolling your eyes literally still knee-deep in snow as you read this :-). I live in Texas because I enjoy being warm, so the lengthy winter gave me the blues.
One of the biggest notable things that has changed about my cooking is probably that it is a lot more health conscious. While I still love a good cookie dough cupcake every now and then, my meals are a lot more calorie-centric. Baby weight was not kind to me and I definitely didn’t help myself in that department by baking every weekend. Continue reading
I cannot believe it has been over a year since my last update. I became so very wrapped up in our beautiful little life and forgot to document it. There is no time to scrapbook and I’ve only created one Shutterfly book for Kirkley from birth to 6 months.
Yep, I still exist and can remember the password to log in to this place.
Well, I mean I had to reset it but I managed to log in.
I figured since it’s been a year since my last post, why not pick it back up again or at least try on occasion? I really did enjoy it, it will give me something productive to do when my little goes to bed.
