But It’s Just the Right Size for Soaking My Feet


I had a choice between spending $50 on a pedicure or a crock pot this weekend.  Guess which one I chose?

If you know me at all, then you probably guessed the pedicure.

But you would be wrong.

I know.  I’m staring at my yucky feet and wondering how I could have possibly made such a ridiculous impulse purchase.

This all comes from being too helpful and having a birthday.

One of the teachers at school needed a bit of technological help, so I came to her aid.  She was beating herself up about her inability to pair her iPad with her computer, so I said, “Well, I’m a horrible cook.”

This gave her the idea of “rewarding” me with 2 slow-cooker recipes that supposedly take absolutely no skill.  And one of them even includes my favorite beverage – Diet Coke.

The problem is that the only slow-cooker we…

Monday Mom Confession: Brownies for Breakfast

Chocolate brownies

I haven’t even committed the crime yet. I have a half of a pan of brownies in my kitchen (the kind my mother-in-law makes that are AMAZING) and I am totally about to dig into them when I go and grab my second cup of decaf coffee. Oh yeah, and I didn’t even work out this morning, so that’s a double whammy! I’m pretty sure the hubby had the same idea this though, there’s a kitchen knife in the pan which was definitely not there last night!

And of course I waited until Brady was safely off to school… can’t have him seeing Mommy eating deserts for breakfast…

What’s your Monday Mom Confession?

Well, I haven’t been a very good blogger.  I’ve been trying to keep up with my 8 week old and she sure is demanding!  I thought I’d have all of this free time during my maternity leave.  HA.  That’s a joke!  I can barely get the dishes done and the laundry put away.  At least I get to sleep at night… well, kind of.  I haven’t been sleeping that well, but it’s not because of the baby.  Josie sleeps all through the night already, but I’ve been getting up at 3 AM to pack the hubby’s lunches (he’s been scheduled to go in at 4 AM).  Unfortunately, without him in bed I have a terrible time getting back to sleep.  So I’m usually up til 5 or 6 playing on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest when I should be writing or working out or something else productive.  I always think that if I just don’t get up then maybe I’ll fall back to sleep… and then I wait.  And wait.  And wait… but the sleep never shows up.  TOMORROW I am going to get up and be productive if I don’t feel sleepy.  I swear.  Really.
