Dial D for Dessert

I have had some pretty fantastic things to eat since the last time I checked in. Last night while watching some weird zombie movie called Fido (Meeker picked it from instant Netflix…he loves zombies…what a nerd) I made an oatmeal sundae (a la Sarah). Best. Idea. Ever. This is so good – it deserves its … Continue reading


I woke up at 5:00 this morning, all ready to do the shred and go to work. Just to be sure, I looked our district’s website to check for a delay (that I was pretty sure wasn’t going to happen) and low and behold…another snow day. Really? This is a bit much. I’m all for … Continue reading

‘Tis the season

…for soup! But before we get to that, I tried a new drink that I got as a sample after my race a few weeks ago. It claims to “control the appetite” – so I decided to give it a try when the mid-afternoon hunger struck. The stats aren’t bad… It does have some weird … Continue reading


We were supposed to go on a field trip today… This was taken at 8am, after Meeker attempted to dig us out, and it has been snowing like crazy all day long. If you didn’t already guess…I had another snow day today! I can’t really believe it. Consecutive snow closures haven’t happened (to me) since … Continue reading


Yup, it happened. It’s a snow day. I woke up at 5:00, looked out the window and thought… “no way” – there was hardly any snow. However, I checked anyway (hoping for a delay, at best)…and I found out the entire school district is closed. That’s wild. I tried to go back to sleep, but … Continue reading

Ignore the Irony

My breakfast pictures (a yummy yogurt mess) were awfully dark, and ugly. I forgot my camera at school so my lunch went unphotographed (cottage cheese, black beans, avocado…fantastic). Blogger fail. What I can show you is my unbelievably good dinner. Chicken: marinated in balsamic vinegar and spicy mustard. Cooked in a skillet. Mashed potatoes cauliflower: … Continue reading

Ouch, Monday.

I forgot how time consuming and exhausting my job is! I also forgot how much I laugh during the day. It’s a fair trade. I worked from 7am – 7pm today, and then came home to do more work for an hour. I can’t even begin to tell you what I was doing either…just work. … Continue reading

Salad and Snow

This morning started out in a rush… I woke up early enough, but then got sidetracked reading blogs, and was subsequently rushing to get ready for church. As a result, breakfast was quick. Coffee and this smoothie (I’m still living off post-race swag) which I drank half of last night, and half of this morning. … Continue reading

Cake Lover

Love Saturdays. Who doesn’t? Slept in a bit again this morning, watched some Food Network, learned what Spatzle is and can’t wait to make it, got in a good davefarmar yoga session and went to lunch with a friend in Boulder. Full, fun day, and it’s only four o’clock (on the dot, I’m in my … Continue reading

Friday Eggs and Figs

I slept in to a whopping 8:40 this morning. Dang – even now, I’m impressed with myself. I’m usually a pre-dawn riser, so that was a big deal. I was dreaming about playing soccer and I remember thinking that I really didn’t want to wake up. But I did. After groggily stumbling downstairs, I did … Continue reading
