Hi, Mum

Hey guys! How’s your Saturday going?? We’re doing pretty good over here- I’m posting in the middle of a massive pre-move organization and cleaning spree.

I was doing really well helping out –I LOVE cleaning but hate making messes to organize- until the Pilot discovered me in a mummy-like state.


I adore his new mummy sleeping bag.

Bella likes it, too.


After goofing around a little

me (3)

I caught the Pilot and Bella canoodling in the sleeping bag 😉


Can’t blame her, though.. he’s a good-looking guy <3



Before the cleanstravaganza began, we had b-fast.

B-fast cookie dough cereal (holler to Brittany who recently tried this!) for me


Steak, eggs and an avocado that was on its last leg for the Pilot


(the steak was leftover from his dinner last night)

While cleaning, we’ve been snacking on these raw snack chips.


They’re sweet, crunchy and have a fun green color from the spirulina.

I’m about to make some lonchi, finish up chore time and then hit up the treadmill with new reading material.


Have a fabulous day!

    Bella looks even more adorable snuggling into the sleeping bag, if that’s even possible :O)

  3. Sana on August 28, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    Bahahah, I could have awesome naps in a sleeping bag 🙂

    hi gina,
    How are you?…it’s been a long time since i wrote a comment on your blog…let’s just say life took over in a crazy crazy way!!…:)….however i never failed to read all your posts, even if i was late by a week.
    I have a reader’s request post. I know u did a post on hair. I am indian by origin, I used to have great hair…but it’s been falling out like crazy of late (medically i’m all okay…eat pretty healthy)…Could u do a post on healthy eats for hair, hair supplements, products u luuurrrveee and any secret tips to grow THICK THICK THICK healthy hair (I’m sur eu noticed how i’ve stressed THICK so many times). You have great hair!. Different cultures have different tips to healthy hair…like if u asked indians, they would swear by coconut oil. Could u tell us what works…i remember u’d mentioned that your mom used to do hair?! Does she know something that really helps grow thick hair. I wouldn’t be stressing this so much if it wasn’t a really desperate situation and i’m sure there are lots of people out there who would love to know some first hand tips. I’m sure if u get this started, there would be readers pouring in with their suggestions/ tips.
    I also have some basic grooming questions:
    1) When u run the flat iron through your hair, do u have shedding. I lose about 10-15 hairs when i flat iron.
    2)When i apply leave in conditioner, my hair esp at the back, tends to lay flat…is it supposed to do that?
    3) what kinda products do u use when u blow dry/ flat iron your hair. How often do u blow dry or flat iron your hair?
    It’s funny how so many of us have this attraction to sleeping bags when we see one!!!…i love getting into my husband’s sleeping bag and zip myself.
    I can’t recollect reading anywhere if u mentioned where u guys will be moving to?
    Can’t wait to hear back from ya!

    • geetha on August 29, 2010 at 9:28 am

      thanks jenna. I’ve started taking omega 3 fish oil…need to be more consistent with it. :)….thanks for the comment…appreciate it!

  5. LisaG on August 28, 2010 at 3:53 pm

    Bella’s looking like “Don’t u dare move me off my sleeping bag.”

  6. A Teenage Gourmet on August 28, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    That’s a great issue – enjoy it! 🙂

  7. Meg on August 28, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    Soo, I can’t decide who looks more cozy in that sleeping bag, haha! 🙂 I wanna try that cookie dough bfast SO bad. Maybe tomorrow 😉

  8. Chelsea on August 28, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    Love thos pictures with the sleeping bag. I loveee cuddling with my puppies under blankets.

  9. christina cadden on August 28, 2010 at 4:38 pm

    Sounds like a fun time!

  10. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on August 28, 2010 at 4:43 pm

    My husband would love you if you made him that breakfast.

  11. Brittany on August 28, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    Thanks for the shout out lady! Your breakfast creations are always delicious. 🙂

    I just got Shape in the mail today so I’m about to hit up the gym for a little treadmill reading session as well. It’ll be my first time back to the gym in over a week – I’m so pumped my leg is feeling a bit better!

  12. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on August 28, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    Aww, this looks like such a fun Saturday!! Love the sleeping bag especially 🙂 And that cookie dough bowl looks delicious!

  13. holly @ couchpotatoathlete on August 28, 2010 at 6:36 pm

    I would love a sleeping bag like that — I love to be all wrapped up in warmth 🙂

    I love when you include The Pilot in your posts, it is so sweet to see 2 people so in love 🙂

  14. Caitlin (EatFeats) on August 28, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    That looks so cozy. I’m wearing a Snuggie right now (don’t worry it’s a Weezer Snuggie so it’s totally cool) so I sympathize with your “mummy-like state.”

  15. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on August 28, 2010 at 7:11 pm

    Those sleepings bags are sooo cozy. This makes me want to go camping! 😀

  16. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on August 28, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    I actually love cleaning and organizing! That’s the only part about moving I like….organizing everything and getting rid of stuff.

  17. Heather (Heather's Dish) on August 28, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    aw, pilot! so cute…and i love the word “canoodling”! oh, that bella!

  18. Tyler on August 28, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    I feel like we are living identical lives right now. Both husbands are temporarily leaving and we’re moving in with family. We’re also in cleanstravaganza mode too. He’s on block leave, so I’m putting him to work!

    I’m only assuming as to where the Pilot is going, but my husband is a fueler (I hope I didn’t just violate OpSec) so maybe they will cross paths on their journey over yander!

  19. Salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on August 28, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    I need to have a cleanstravaganza verry verrrrryy soon haha

  20. shelly@campinggirlchronicals on August 28, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    I love Real Simple… I looked at that exact issue today and didn’t pick it up.

  21. Cara on August 28, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    You guys look so cute cute in your huge sleeping bag!

  22. Nicole on August 28, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    I just got a sleeping bag like that and I’m totally obsessed with it. I use it every night! It’s too good.

  23. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on August 28, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    I cant believe you’re posting in the midst of packing…and of course during sleeping bag breaks. TOO CUTE!!!!!

    Have a super sunday and there is nothing more gueling and backbreaking than sorting, packing, trashing/donating, taping up boxes, going to the store to get boxes, girl. Ugh. I have done it toooooo many times the past 10 years. As in 10 in 10 yrs. We are done now hopefully 🙂

  24. Felicia on August 28, 2010 at 10:48 pm

    There is too much adorable-ness in this post!

  25. Allison on August 28, 2010 at 11:24 pm

    That sleeping bag would make even ME want to go camping!! I love the outdoors…and getting to live in a house not a tent lol!! Have fun packing. I love to pack for short trips/vacations but hate packing for moves!

  26. Jenna on August 29, 2010 at 12:04 am

    Omgsh, I literally Lol’ed at the pics of you in that sleeping bag!! In the second one I burst out laughing going “IT’S E.T.!!” hahah.

  27. Mimi on August 29, 2010 at 1:47 am

    The worst thing (or only bad thing) about avocados is that they can go bad so fast and you can’t store half… Boo.

    I saw those raw chips, and they looked really interesting… but it’s so expensive!

  28. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on August 29, 2010 at 2:23 am

    Hehe mummy sleeping bags are amazing! I’ve had once since 5th grade overnight camp, except mine has “American Girl” written all over it 😉

  29. Neen @ Broad Bean to Runner Bean on August 29, 2010 at 6:02 am

    aww i love how you talk about the Pilot, its sooo nice!

  30. Kristen on August 29, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    I am making the cookie dough cereal tomorrow. Every time I read about it I want it so I think i’m finally going to have it.
