Because today is so crappy…

It has just been one of those days so instead of angst filled writing (which I absolutely despise), I’ve decided to share a few more photos from this weekend.

Before we took the top photo, the Seaworld staff member had accused Mike and I of fighting. What she didn’t understand is that when we, for example, say the following:

'Oh my gosh, look at you. Anyone else hurt in the accident?'

'Calling you stupid would be an insult to stupid people.'

'Do you love 'NATURE' - In spite of what it did to you?'


'Do you want people to accept you as you are or do you want them to like you?'...

We actually mean, ‘I love you’

I think there was a manatee behind my head in the bottom photo. As if my day wasn’t bad enough, now I have to come to the realization that my head is so big it blocked out the animal also known as the ‘Sea Cow’.

I’m going to go cry now.

Hello? HSN?...

For the last few months, I’ve been attempting to eat somewhat healthy. I figure, as I’m inching toward 30, I’d better start preparing this aging body by caring – at least a little – for it. That, and eventually, I’d like to have children and I’d rather they not pop out with an addiction to the convenience of 7-11 processed foods and beverages.

* Though I do wonder, if I polished off a Razzmatazz Lime Slurpee while in labor, would I have a kid with a green umbilical cord? Because that’d be cool and it’s worth trying. *

Poor Taco Bell has suffered a considerable slump in sales since I backed off those cheddar potatoes.


Things have been going great, except for this silly culinary program I’m in. Recently, we made buttermilk cheddar cheese and chive biscuits accompanied by bacon gravy (as if the buttermilk or the cheddar part of the biscuit wasn’t bad enough, we opted for an ultra flaky texture only created by mass amounts of butter) and we finished the class with a citrus chiffon cake layered and topped with sugared whipping cream. Last night we made pizzas – loaded with toppings of course.

Just thinking about the fat content of those recipes makes my butt bigger.

Unfortunately I’m left with 2 options to keep this figure looking good:

1) Eat less of this fantastic food I’m learning to make


2) Work out more

* And by ‘more’ I mean more than the 14 steps I take from the house to my car that I currently consider ‘working out’.

As I sit here nibbling on the most amazing left over pizza and a warm buttered roll, I can’t help but add option C…

3.) Purchase industrial strength body slimmers from the Home Shopping Network.

No worries. I have them on speed dial.

Wordless Monday?!?!?

I've been really busy lately and haven't had time to update. Today is no exception. Sooo...

Here are pictures of my weekend.

Friday I spent time out on the jobsites which was actually pretty fun...

Don't be jealous. Hard hat hair is so cute.

And Chris was working Saturday so I went to Seaworld with some uber cool people...

And saying, 'Casey, you have a big trunk!' may lead to Beth saying, 'I bet I can fit!'
