carbs make me happy...

hubby is getting an hour of homework in and i am on day two of my tv fast. in an effort to move in a direction of fitting into my jeans again today i put on new work out clothes and sneakers this morning!! i did not actualy work out. but i was thinking maybe i could burn a few calories by imagining myself vigorously running around little 5 (as i drank a soy smoothie and read a little of "the book thief  by mark zusack in the starbucks and watched the cars roll by). additionally, i havent had one morsel of bread or the like today. i did however have a heaping pile of asparagus and roasted chicken for dinner. i'm still very hungry:-(

in an effort to distract myself from not turning on the television or eating one of the brownies or oatmeal raisin cookies i made in the last two days (am i trying to torture myself?), i thought i'd post some pix and do a litttle blog.


i've been working on my manicure. i make sure to put lots of vaseline on my hands before i go to the grocery store as i'm am always embarrassed to sign the reciept with my ashy knuckles...


shout out to the lady in the seafood department at my favorite publix for hipping me to this new recipe that hubby LOVED.. i did not eat this tonight i promise. next time i'll make it with whole wheat pasta :-( i tossed in some shrimp sauteed with garlic and olive oil (blue cheese crumbles and spinach)..


one of my favorite salads. the first date hubby and i went on (actually second).. he invited me over to his place where he made me dinner (those were the days...) and introduced me to this lovely little piece of heaven.. drizzled with a dressing made of mayo, a little white vinegar and sugar (splenda?)..


i snagged this recipe from the lates issue of martha stewart living.. i've made them twice in two weeks.. i think they'll become a staple around here..


arent these the most beautiful eyes you've ever seen..
 i love her so.. and i so enjoy seeing life all over again through these...
her favorite phrase is, "but why mommy?"..
that's a good question.

i'm inspired by your tv fast. my tivo popped up 3 times during playoff football to ask if it should change to keeping up with the kardashions to record it. chad was watching with fellow packer fans. embarrassing!!!

wondering have you gotten any better:-) i've actually staved off the reality tv cravings. just young and the restless and an occasional episode of the bachelor (with tony).
