Dear CHEEZ-IT’s,

I will love you forever, and ever.


Just needed to take a little time out of my day to profess my undying love… back to work!


Family Time

6 Sep

How was everyone’s long weekend?  The hubs and I hardly did a thing, and it was just what we needed.  It was so fantastic to just hang out with each other and the pup.  We did run some errands, but there was not one thing that we “had” to do this weekend.  We didn’t even go to a cookout, which felt a little odd. 

We did make a trip to the mal,l where we spoiled H.  He’s needed some new work clothes for a while now, and there were some great sales going on.  It was one of those magic trips, where he loved everything and they had his size.  He’s 6’3, so it’s no easy task to find dress shirts that fit properly.  Especially not in a variety of colors/styles.    I on the other hand, could not find ANYTHING that I liked.  Do you find that when you have some extra money, you can’t find anything, but when you don’t have extra cash, you want everything you see?  I did see a lot of great fall clothes, but it was so MUGGY this weekend.  I couldn’t bring myself to buy, or try on sweaters. 

These were my only purchase


A very cute pair of BCBG ballet flats.

Come On Long Weekend!

2 Sep

Normally, I do not get to partake in glorious long weekends.  In my job, I have a number of international clients that don’t celebrate our holidays.  Rude, I know.  You would think they would be a little more considerate of ME!  I kid, I kid. Anyways, I got the fantabulous news that I DO in fact get Monday off!  Woo Hoo!!!!  So now, I’m just sitting here waiting for the clock to say those magic numbers, 6:00.  Torture!

I may or may not be indulging in these to help pass the time.



What are your weekend plans?

I need a VACATION!

24 Aug

I’m so burnt out… this is pretty much how I feel on a daily basis.

In March, my husband and I went on an AH-MAZING 2 week vacation to Ireland.  It was supposed to be our one BIG vacation for the year. We spared no expense, and truly had an incredible time.

We were there for St. Patrick’s day, and there were a lot of these

And A LOT of these

Which did not leave us with a lot of this

The problem is that March seems like YEARS ago.  I mentally need a break.  I need time off from work.  It needs to be more then just a long weekend.  I hate long weekends!  Well, I mean I dont HATE them, but let’s be honest,  a long weekend usually turns into just another day to run errands, or do things around the house.  I don’t want to do a thing.  I want to sit by a pool, or on a beach with gossip mags.  I want to go for a hike, or rent a kayak.

Excuse me, I’m going to plan a budget friendly getaway now.  I’ll be back.

Weekly Workouts

23 Aug

Better late then never?

Sunday- Zumba  lay on the couch feeling like garbage all day (thanks John Jameson)

Monday- rest (because clearly Sunday was not enough rest)

Tuesday- Zumba, for REAL this time

Wednesday- Pilates DVD at home

Thursday- weight workout at the gym, and running on the track

Friday- Rest

Saturday- Zumba Tone



I’ve been a terrible blogger lately. I feel like I have all these awesome topics floating around in my mind, but when I sit at the computer it all goes away.  I’ve noticed that lots of Blogs I like to read, are full of pictures.  To be a better Blogger, I need to get used to carrying my camera and snapping lots of pics.  I’M WORKING ON IT.  I promise to dedicate more time, and energy (and pictures)!

Change O Plans

11 Aug

I TRY to plan out my workouts in advance.  I feel like if it’s scheduled into my week, I’m more likely to stick to it.  What’s so easy about this right now for me, is that I’ve been taking a lot of classes.

This is what this week was supposed to look like.

Sunday- Zumba (check)

Monday- Rest (check)

Tuesday- Zumba (check)

Wednesday- Aerobics (um not so much)

Thursday- Gym work out.  Some combination of running, abs, and machines (yet to be determined)

Friday- Rest

Saturday- Zumba Tone

I skipped Aerobics on Wednesday.  I had to, I just WAS.NOT.FEELING.IT!  Back story, I decided to join an aerobics class a few months ago, because it was being offered by my old dance instructor.  I took classes with her from the time I was 3 until I was 18.  There was something wonderful and nostalgic about taking one of her classes again.  There was nothing more comforting than her yelling out 5.. 6… 7… 8…, and running through pretty much the entire stretch/warm up routine I remember (to updated music).  I loved being in her class, the problem was, I didn’t like the class.  So I think I’m saying Ciao to Wednesday night Aerobics.

Skipping a work out completely did not seem like a good idea.   I finally feel like I’m getting back into a routine.   So I popped in a 20 minutes Pilates video, and it was killa!  I love Pilates, and I’m not sure why I don’t do it more.  Maybe Wednesday’s will now be Pilates night.  I know my abs would definitely benefit!

You probably noticed above, that tonight’s workout is questionable.  It’s the first Pre Season game for the Patriots, and the hubs started sending emails around noon telling me the gym was closed tonight!   If it’s closed, we clearly can’t go!  Silly man!



Babies are Everywhere!

11 Aug

On Saturday, we met some good friends at the Amesbury Ale House (change of plans), for dinner.  Right before it was time to order drinks, my good friend A announced that she would be ordering water because she is pregnant!!  That makes 2 announcements in 2 weeks!  All of a sudden babies are everywhere!  I am so over the moon excited for both of my close friends and this amazing journey they are on, but suddenly when A announced her pregnancy I had this major minor panic attack.

I have no idea what brought it on.  All of sudden all these doubts flooded my mind.  What if we can’t have children?  What if there is something wrong with ME?  I understand these are all normal fears, and they are issues my husband and I have discussed at length.  We have lots of love to give, and are more than willing to adopt and give a baby that needs a home, all that we have to give.  The wave of doubt and panic was overwhelming, and like nothing I have ever experienced before.

All of a sudden I have this urge, this burning in my being for a baby.  Is this that biological clock I’ve heard so much about??
