What She Wore....Everyday!

Diva has a favorite dress. She wears it every time I wash it and I can't be positive, but she may even be getting it out of the dirty clothes basket. I took this picture Sunday because she was so creative with her outfit and THAT DRESS.

The picture is terrible...sorry for that. However, you get the idea. She's wearing her favorite dress with bright purple heavy knit tights that have multi colored butterflies all over them. She's also been obsessed with side "pony's" lately. She is insistent that she have one nearly everyday.
Dress: Children's Place
Tights: Target
As I write this blog she came down stairs with a wardrobe change....I had to take a picture and she was proud to show me.
Brown Leggings: I have no idea
Purple Princess Shirt: Target
Lace Socks: Target
Gold Sandals: Carter's
Attitude: Her Father

Diva has a friend who shares the same fashion sense that Diva possesses. Her mother shared these pictures with me.
Getting ready for school--nice boots

Another school day I'm pretty sure

As a parent it is sometimes very difficult to let your child dress themselves or even go in public in some of the things they put on. But, I also believe in encouraging their creativity and independence so it is rare that I make Diva change out of her outfits. Sometimes I try to encourage her in another direction, but mostly I let her be. Mr. Mayer hates this!

Hurt So Good

Ever done something that hurts, is hard, and you want to quit, but when you are done it feels so good??? That's how this week has gone for me. This week on my fitness tour brought me to Revved Fitness.   And it hurt so good. Revved is almost identical to Orangetheory. They do a combination of cardio and strength. You wear a heart rate monitor and the goal is to to elevate your heart rate and work in certain zones. The only difference I noticed is that Revved uses stationary bikes for cardio and Orangetheory uses treadmills. Revved offers a 7 day trial for $10. I signed up online and went to my first class Monday morning. Monday morning came and was stormy, early, and a line was almost out the door when I arrived. Yikes! I signed in and wandered into the room. It was a BIG class. All the bikes were full, and there were people on rowers and the strength area. The trainer split us in half. Half the class started with strength the other half started with cardio. I got in the stre

Let Me Catch My Breathe....

Hey! Hey! Hey! My fitness tour is still going strong :) I am pretty confident I will be able to at least make it to vacation time doing free, or discounted classes around town. Then I can make my final decision on what I want to stick with. The last two weeks have taught me that my fitness level has gone way down....I am not as strong as I thought I was. Maybe gone down isn't the right word. Maybe, more like, I'm nuts and had a skewed perception of my fitness level....maybe I was never as fit as I thought I was??? All these classes are giving me a dose of reality. This week I started off strong with CycleBar . Now. I LOVE spin classes. My friend, Jeff, started teaching spin a million years ago, and I took my first spin class with him in 2011. He has always been my favorite instructor and I compare every other class to him. Every one. So, on a scale of 1-Jeff how did I like Cycle Bar...I'll admit, it was at an 8 or 9. Maybe if the instructor and I were friends outside of cl

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine!  She came over today to make some pasta.
