Sleepovers

Gosh…I have been on an Olivia roll lately. She's my oldest. We are having a lot of growing up happening around here lately.

She has been doing really well in school this week. After school today we met two of her friends, their Mama's and sisters (6 little girls!) and went and saw Beauty and the Beast in 3D. It was very exciting. Belle is Olivia's very favorite princess. She can recite the movie word for word and sing all the songs. Between it being her favorite movie and getting to eat popcorn and candy and share a drink with me she was in Heaven. At the end of the movie when the Beast fights Gaston all three of those girls were standing up talking to the screen and clapping. It was my favorite part of the entire movie.

After the movie Olivia went home with one of her friends for a sleepover. This is a very big deal. She has never stayed the night with anyone who wasn't related to her before. This was her first sleepover with a  friend. I have been so nervous. Is she having fun? Is she behaving? Is she being nice and not bossing her friends around? Is she going to sleep tonight? During the summer we tried to let her and her cousin Izzy sleep together on an air mattress one weekend at the lake. The girls NEVER went to sleep. They giggled and played for 2 hours until we finally had to separate them. I'm worried :/ Her friends mom has humored my neurosis and answered all my texts. She has even sent a couple of pictures. Those girls are having the best time. Olivia may never want to come home! I can't wait to talk to her tomorrow and have her tell me all about it.

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. While s

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken. Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back) Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

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
