Cleaning the Table Makes You Feel Like You Really Have Your $hit Together...

Hello blogging world! Long time I know. My apologies. I took a break. I have a tendency to take on to much and then I feel overwhelmed. I needed a break. No worries we are all truckin' along around here. The terrible horrible 3's have hit. Ugh...I'm over it. If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter you saw last night's post.
Seriously. Needless to say two little boys went to bed early last night. We all woke up with new attitudes this morning. I have started going to the gym at the butt crack of dawn again. It really frees up my days. I think I am adjusting to my new reduced sleep schedule. I don't feel like I want to pass out today. I have managed to do my dishes, start laundry, get dinner in the crock pot, mop the floor, make lunch and work on my TMOMs newsletter this morning. The boys requested "Mac and Cheese" with "vegeables." I was happy to oblige. Naturally #3 got half his lunch on my freshly mopped floor. #2 got half his lunch all over the table. Not wanting to feel left out #3 had to dump his plate on the table. Now...normally it may be several hours (if at all) before I get the table wiped off after lunch. Breakfast. Dinner. To be honest there are some days the breakfast is still on the table at dinner time. But today? Today I got the table wiped off right after lunch. The Dudes even put their own dishes in the sink. Winning! It's those moments that really make you feel like you have your $hit together.

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
