Walking into spiderwebs

How’s your weekend going so far? Yesterday was Family Friday at the squadron bar. It was great to catch up with the wives (the theme was Hawaiian BBQ) and hold Livi while she sucked on cantaloupe- she LOVED it- and we all had a lot of fun. Last night was also my last Friday night…

Mite-y

Have you tried this stuff before? Vegemite! It’s huge in Australia, and I’ve become good friends with a girl who is staying in Tucson from Australia for a while. Yesterday, I asked her if she liked Vegemite, and she said, “I have tubes of it in my room! I’ll bring you one.” Today we had…

Wake up slow

After one night of nightmares (which I wrote about), the next night I woke up to a fork in the bed. Not even joking. Bella took my “lunch fork” out of my work gym bag and brought it into our bed. When I rolled over, I thought my leg was on something wet, which was…

A different kind of cooking

While I made the chickpea patties last night, I also ventured into a new-to-me kinda cooking. Baby food! How cute are these little baby bullet containers?! (Peas, carrots and green beans) We’ve been experimenting with babyled weaning so far – the baby is given large pieces of the same food you’re eating. The only obstacles…

“Baby Got Back” workout

Will shake for chicken. Would probably sing an aria whilst riding a unicycle for chicken, but you know. Another lovely Pilot-grilled feast: I prepped the food and when he got home, he grilled it up while I did the baby bedtime rituals. We had dinner before 8pm, and it was awesome. Wilted some kale on…

We’re all out

Whenever Bella’s food dish is empty, she’ll clank the bowl and then walk over to us, as if to say, “You hear that, fools? I’m outta food. Feed me.” So you can imagine the fury that was unleashed when I walked over to the pantry, grabbed her bag of food and a few measly kernels…

Zumba while you werk

Sometimes, cactus reminds me of the Pilot. That seems like a weird thing to say, but he is fascinated with it, especially since he grew up in the South. It’s weird to him that many Tucson homes have deadly plants in their yard, which is understandable. On the other hand, greenery and trees are kinda…

Some things never change

Like my constantly mismatched socks protein, berry, almond butter oats (kinda watery this morning, but still good) and Bella’s ability to peer deep into your soul. Thankfully, some things do change… like the Pilot’s facial hair 😉 Mustache March ended early over here! No more scratchy kisses for meeeeeee. We went to Lowe’s this morning…

Baller

I’m officially sick of every song on my phone. I’ll download new songs on the computer and then forget to transfer them over, so when I workout, I end up scrolling through a mix of random stuff on my phone: the Mowtown CD I downloaded for beginning aerobics, old pop/rap/Zumba/rock songs, Christmas music and the…

Homemade Strawberry Sports Drink

Enjoy this homemade strawberry sports drink to hydrate before or after a workout. At a bar in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, they have the best infusions…fresh fruit soaking in vodka, which tastes dangerously like candy. That’s all I can remember to tell you about those drinks. This strawberry infusion is a little bit healthier, and will help…

Shorts weather,

I commend you. It was such a gorgeous day that we ended spending a lot of it outside and things got all kinds of domestic over here. The Pilot worked on the yard I planted some herbs… that I will eventually kill Livi was napping or chilling with us on the patio, and Bella enjoyed…

You want fries with that shake?

Source Started the day off shaking at World Beat. Live drummers, yelling, international dance styles…Love. First, I had some toast and eggs with salsa and took a Pure Bar with me for afterwards. The interesting thing about World Beat is that it isn’t pre-choreographed, like Zumba or Dance Trance. Each song is a particular rhythm…
