Dear Daylight Savings Time,

I love you. I am in love with the fact that it was 7pm and the sun was still shining! So long to the SADs! Don’t let the door hit cha! I don’t think I have ever been more ready for Spring and Summer than I am right now. The weather next week is supposed to be GLORIOUS.  I see lots of park time, bike riding time, and soccer time in my future.  Aidan is on Spring Break this week so I am glad the weather is cooperating!

Dinner last night ended up being an apple and a banana.  I’ve got hungry days and not so hungry days….but you better believe I was ready for breakfast almost immediately! I really wonder if it has anything to do with the bigger breakfast I have been having.  I guess we will see this week!

Thankfully, this morning went much more smoothly than last week.  Breakfast was the same as yesterday’s.  I ate at about 7am.  I really like this combination.  I definitely need to add a full cup of milk though.  After I let it cool and set,  it becomes super thick.  I have added  more milk to the bowl every morning.  I had a class at church this morning at 10am and then went to the last service at 11:30am and I didn’t feel like chewing my arm off which was quite shocking.  I did have a Luna Bar while I was waiting for service to start though.  I knew I would be ravenous afterward if I didn’t.

Outfit for church.  Sort of the same as Thursday’s except:

Jeans: American Eagle

Sunglasses: Charming Charlie’s

We didn’t get home until almost 2pm and while I was very hungry, I wasn’t all bets are off hungry.  I ate an apple and a few almonds while I prepared this:

Repeat of yesterday’s lunch.

After lunch, I got the munchies for something sweet, something in the area of chocolate chips.  Sadly, we have nothing of the kind in this house.  I thought I might bake something, so I got out my recipe binder and the batch of granola I made yesterday.  I munched on that while I browsed my recipes trying to satisfy my sweet tooth.  I ended up mindlessly eating way too much.  I ended up feeling like I had a lump of oatmeal in my stomach for hours afterwards.  It was a sad SAD substitute for chocolate chips.

Now that I had a stomach ache, I decided to sit down to start a book we are reading in church.

The Story

But I was so sleepy I didn’t make it past the map, and crashed out.  I am so pathetic.


How’s this for bizarre?

These are the search terms people have used to find my blog.

my husband shared me? um, all righty then!


Thanks to a lot of prep last night, I was able to throw my crock pot meal for tonight’s dinner together in a flash this morning.  Crock pot meals are the best.  I absolutely LOVE coming home to a meal already prepared.  It’s ALMOST like someone has cooked for you!  Well, the closest I will probably ever get in this house!

I made Chicken Tortilla Crock Pot Soup, from Iowa Girl Eats. And My My My, was it fantastic!!!  I am so glad we have a ton of it left, because I could eat this all week.  Jeremy and I were like Bubba from Forest Gump.

In our best Bubba impersonations:

“We could put it on chips, with cheese and make nachos”

“We could drain it wrap it in a tortilla and have tacos”

“We could put it over lettuce and have a salad”

This will definitely be on repeat many times this week.

served with Baked Tostitos and reduced-fat shredded cheese

Unfortunately I was still a kind of full from overeating earlier, but I did have enough room for a little.

I am remarkably alert for it being so late now, I know it’s the time change. (I Love You!) But, I better get in that bed before I regret it in the morning.
