New Recipe Tue... er, Wednesday

Howdy!  Today I’m actually doing a “New Recipe Wednesday” post (used to be Tuesday, but I didn’t cook until Tuesday evening so…).  It’s been a really long time since I shared a recipe.  It’s been a really long time since I’ve cooked a new-to-me recipe (or cooked at all…um…)

Anywho, today’s recipe was inspiration from Courtney’s Weekly Meal Plan post the other day.  The Crispy Baked Honey Garlic Chicken looked and sounded delicious, so I thought I’d try it out.  Here’s what I did…

Since it’s only Hubs and I (Jillian had something different since I’m sure she’d be like “um, no” to Honey Garlic chicken), I halved the recipe and cut up 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into small chunks.


Then I dredged them in egg and Panko.


And placed them on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and cooked them at 400 for 15 minutes. 


While this was cooking, I whipped up the sauce.  I whisked together honey, soy sauce, Sriracha and garlic powder over medium-high heat.  In a separate bowl I mixed together a water and cornstarch “slurry” (as Pioneer Woman calls it) and whisked it into the sauce. 



It made the sauce nice and thick. 

                    

Once the chicken was done, I added the sauce and voila, Honey Garlic Chicken.  Spooned it on top of some brown rice and I had a Pei Wei worthy meal.


The verdict:  It was good!  The flavor was a little different than what I was expecting, but it was tasty.  I loved the breaded, semi crispy chunks of chicken and how the sauce stuck to it.  Mental note though, don’t make the sauce right away.  I made and finished my sauce with still 7 minutes left on the chicken, so by the time the chicken came out the sauce was like glue.  Still good, but hard to maneuver.

Warning, this recipe makes your kitchen look like a tornado blew through.  Hubs actually said, it looked like a mad scientist had been in our kitchen.  It was mess, but I’ll take that as a nice compliment.  Fair warning though.

Here’s the real recipe if you’re interested in trying it yourself.  

Overall, it was great getting back in the kitchen and playing.  I need to do this more often!

Easter Weekend Highlights

Hello and happy Monday.  I am not sure how it’s already Monday again, I feel like the weekend just flew by.  We had a nice weekend over in these parts, so I thought I’d do the whole recap your weekend in bullets thing…

Friday night fun time
Just kidding, Friday night we literally hung out on the couch and watched an old episode of American Idol (we’re a few behind).  We are wild and crazy.

Saturday girls shopping trip

We are currently in the process of converting Jillian’s room to a “big girl room.”  Gone is the crib/toddler bed (sniffle).  She now has a full-size (double) bed with a headboard and adorable bedding that I found on Overstock.com (pictures forthcoming).  Now I’m just trying to channel my inner interior decorator and decorate the rest of the room.  So where else to go but Homegoods!  Jillian and I went to Homegoods and Target (two stores I could easily spend all of my money in) on Saturday afternoon looking for fun things to decorate her walls, her dresser, etc.  Of course I didn’t take any pictures that day, or take any pictures of the stuff we bought, so stay tuned.  But we had a blast with our “girls only” shopping trip.  

Easter basket making

After our shopping trip, Jillian conked out, which gave me time to put together her Easter basket.  


Yeah, I’m the mom that puts a little bit of candy and then toothbrush/toothpaste in the Easter basket.  Haha.  She is currently obsessed with brushing her teeth, so it was really a no brainer.  And then favorites of hers, like yogurt, cheesy poofs, cotton candy and books.  Fun.

Easter Sunday
On Easter Sunday we woke up bright and early to see what the Easter bunny had brought.  She was really excited about her books (and her toothpaste and chocolate).


Soon after we got cleaned up and headed to church.




And then after church we had a big meal at our house.  I made pork tenderloin that turned out absolutely phenomenal (not too toot my own horn or anything, but it was amazing), cheesy potatoes, french onion green beans and cornbread.  And then my mom’s pound cake for dessert.  Needless to say everything was delicious and I ate way too much.


After that, an Easter egg hunt in the backyard.



And then a few rounds of hide and seek before my in-laws left.  It was a great day! 

Monday
This morning I have every intention of getting up and going running, but it just did not happen.  Blerg.  I really wanted to get a run in today because I haven’t run in … a while (the Saturday before last?) and that pesky half marathon is coming up soon.  Ah well, back on track tomorrow.


And my random question of the day, why does an $0.85 fountain Diet Coke make me soooo happy in the morning?  


Hope your Monday is a great one!!

Friday Five - March 25

Well, hello!  I’m still here.  It’s been a busy week (Spring Break) and I just haven’t had time to check in and say hello, so I’m doing it now! 


Spring Break in Clearwater
Jillian was off of school this week, so her and I headed down to my parents' house in Clearwater to have a little fun.  Unfortunately the weather at the beginning of the week wasn’t very Spring Break-y (highs in the low 60s, lows in the 50s), but by the end of the week it had warmed up to the upper 80s again.  Weird.  Anyway, we had a lot of fun.  I worked Monday and Tuesday while Jillian went to the park...


rearranged my mom's photos (multiple times)...


 got a haircut (while sitting in a car!)... 



had a playdate next door, twirled around and sang Let It Go in her new Elsa dress, etc.  


She had a blast hanging at Grandma and Grandpa's house. 

Zoo
On Wednesday we took a trip to the Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa for a little fun.


Our zoo photos were priceless.  This is just a small sampling of the gems they took.  We ended up buying all of the digital images because they were just too hilarious and awesome to not get.

Lowry Park Zoo is a huge zoo in Tampa and one I haven’t been to since, maybe, college?  It’s been a long time and it’s really evolved over the years.  We bought a one day ticket, which allows us admission for the rest of the year (sweet!), so we will definitely be going back.  We meandered around the zoo and saw lots of animals, and then wandered over to the area where you could feed the giraffes.


Yes, I said feed the giraffes.  For $5 you could walk right up and be face to face with a giraffe and feed it lettuce.


It was so cool.  I wanted to feed it, but we let Jillian do all of the feeding. 

After the giraffe feeding, we headed over to the children’s area that had a carousel, a little roller coaster and a splash area.  Mental note: next time bring Jillian’s bathing suit. 



We had a blast at the zoo.  It’s been so long since I’ve been to a real zoo.  We go to Animal Kingdom at Disney all the time, but that’s “nahtazu” (ha, remember those ads?), so it was nice to go to a real zoo and see the sights and the animals.  Like I said, we’ll definitely be going back soon!

Cinnamon Bears
I went shopping for Jillian’s Easter basket goodies the other day at Target and had a hankering for cinnamon bears.  I looooove me some cinnamon bears.  They are so dangerous though.  I (stupidly) bought 3 packs of them (one for Jillian’s basket, two for me) and plowed through them while I was in Clearwater.  No more cinnamon bears for me for a while.  They’re so stinkin delicious though.



Sleep
Don’t you hate when you can’t get to sleep at night?  Ugh, I get so angry and frustrated when I can’t sleep, it drives me bonkers.  Last night was my first night back at home in my bed, and I was so looking forward to a nice, uninterrupted night of sleep because I was exhausted from our trip home.  I fell asleep around 11 and woke up at 11:10 for some reason.  And then I couldn’t get back to sleep.  UGGGH!  It then took me almost two and a half hours to fall back asleep!  Seriously, I was a crazy person.  I was so sleepy, but I just could not fall back asleep.  I hate that!

Workouts
I worked out Monday and Tuesday and then had grand plans to run on Wednesday and do Pilates on Thursday, but that didn’t happen.  Meh.  Spring Break.  I’ll get back on track this weekend.  For this week, here’s what I did:

Monday
Butt Hips and Thighs on Daily Burn (ooh, I was sore for a couple days after)

Tuesday
Pilates Classic I

Wednesday
Walked around the zoo…?  That counts, right?


Have a fantastic weekend!  And for those celebrating Easter – enjoy!!!

Friday Five - March 18

It’s Friday already?   It’s been a weird week.  I’ve been off a day since Tuesday.  On Tuesday I thought it was Wednesday, and then when Friday got here I was like “it’s Friday already?”  Weird. 


Sick
Part of my reasoning for it being a weird week could be my extreme lack of sleep this week due to being “sick.”  I put sick in quotations because I’m not really sick, or at least I don’t feel bad enough to call myself sick, but I definitely have something going on.  I have had laryngitis for a good portion of the week.  On Saturday I woke up and had no voice.  I felt fine, just a little chest congestion contributing to the laryngitis, but I just couldn’t talk.  And it has been up and down since then.  I feel the worst at night when I have a persistent tickle in my throat, so going to sleep has been a chore all week.  I’ll doze and then a minute later I’ll be coughing and then I’ll be awake, and then I’ll doze again… vicious cycle.  I’ve gone two nights now finally falling asleep in the 2 o’clock hour and waking up in the 6 o’clock hour.  Oy. 

Vote

On Tuesday it was our turn to vote, so I did!


I was expecting long lines at the polls so I went at a super weird time (11:00) and there was no one there.  Perfect. 

Time change
I’m not excited about this time change yet.  I love the idea of it being lighter later and all that, but I hate that it’s now darker in the morning.   I know it’ll eventually get lighter earlier as we get closer to summer (wait, it’s not spring yet?), but still.  It makes me not want to get up and go outside and run…

Run
…but I did!  Despite the dark and the lack of sleep this week I have gotten up every morning for a workout.  Proud about that.  I got out for a run on Wednesday morning and, hot damn, it was a GREAT run.  You know when you have a run where everything is just working and you feel great and everything is sunshine and rainbows and puppy dogs?  That’s how this run was.  It was so great.  I’ve noticed that my core is stronger when I run now, and the lower back pain is gone, which is so flippin amazing.  Pilates.  I’m telling you.  But yeah, this run was just … awesome.  Here’s how my week went workout-wise:

Monday
Daily Burn workouts The Challenge and 5/10 in 9 (some crazy workout with boxing and weights and stuff)

Tuesday
Pilates Classic 1

Wednesday
Run + Pilates Stretch

Thursday
Pilates Classic 2 (I’ve graduated)

Friday
LUC 180 (I don’t know what it stands for, but it’s good)

Saturday
Long(ish) run + Pilates Stretch

Sunday
Rest

Number 4 Fluoro5 Elixir

Say what?  Yeah.  I received this hair oil in my latest Birchbox and thought “eh, it’s probably like BioSilk.”  I’ve used BioSilk in my hair since high school and recently switched to something else (Chi something or other, which I like).  I tried this on my hair on Wednesday and WOW.  Usually after I blow dry my hair it’s not as silky smooth as I would like.  With this stuff it is.  I really don’t even have to flat iron after blow drying if I don’t want to when I use this stuff.  It’s freaking amazing.  My hair is silky and smooth and just wow.  It’s good.  I’m adding it to my ever growing list of things to buy from Birchbox.  Danger.

And that's it!  Happy Friday folks!

Race Thoughts

I have run six races year already (four 5Ks and two 10Ks). I think that’s more races that I ran collectively all last year.  Crazy, right?  




Same picture, six different ways.

During every race I always wish my thoughts could magically be transcribed because I think about the wackiest stuff during races.  There’s so much to see and think when you’re running (especially a longer distance) and my thoughts are just everywhere.  

Anyway, this is my attempt to get some of those thoughts down on paper (or blog?).  Enjoy the complete randomness (and snarkiness).


- Running shirts should be made with the cute/clever/funny message on the back instead of the front.  Why?  Because no one sees the front of anyone’s shirt in a race.  You’re always looking at someone’s back.  
This is why when Michele, Amanda and I made our shirts for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler a few years ago, we put the cute/clever/funny message on the back.



See what I mean?


- OMG there are so many people, I feel claustrophobic!

- OMG, this uneven cobblestone is going to KILL me.


- I feel like there are a lot more people on race courses that run/walk these day.  This makes me so happy and makes me feel like part of a neat little group on a race course.  Go Galloway people!


- Speaking of run/walkers, I’ve also noticed more people using hand signals for when they slow to a walk, or speed up for a run.  I don’t know if there is an “official” hand signal for run/walkers, but over the years I’ve noticed people raising their hand to signal when they are slowing to a walk or speeding up for a run.  Love it.  I started doing this not too long ago as well because it’s just polite to alert someone behind you that you’re about to start walking.  I was just pleased to see a lot more people doing it.  


A little Googling and I found this on the topic: 




- There is always that one car (or two, or twelve) that just has to pull out of their driveway on to the race course during the race.  This infuriates me to no end.  You know that a gigantic running race is going to go through your neighborhood.  Stay in your freakin house until it’s over.  We won’t take long.  These people should be arrested for endangering the lives of hundreds of people.  Annoying.

- The other annoying guy is the guy who parks his $70,000 Tesla on the street when his driveway is empty, so that we all have to run around his fancy car.  Oh, and did I mention he was standing out on the street next to his car cheering people on? Move your car dude.  I hope someone scratched it.  Annoying.


- I read a lot of running blogs of people who run 7 minute miles, 9 minute miles, 3 hour marathons and I oftentimes feel very inferior, like “what is wrong with me? I run like a 13 minute mile on a good day.”  I know I shouldn’t do this, but it’s kind of hard not to compare yourself to other people.  During races I find I’m always surrounded by people like me, who run/walk/whatever at the same pace as me.  It just makes me glad to know that I’m not alone.



- During pretty much every race I run, there is always someone who runs up to me and tells me “you’re doing great!” or “good for you!” or something of that sentiment.  I would like to think that these people are doing it just to be really nice, but I know why they are doing it. It’s the way I run.


Let’s talk about this...  I’ve wanted to talk about this for a long time.  If you’ve been reading this blog for a long time (bless you), then you may know about my accident.  When I was 8 years old I was in a bicycle accident where I sustained a head injury that left me paralyzed on my left side.  I had to work hard to learn how to walk again, talk again, write again, use my entire left side again. I eventually got everything back, but my left side was left much weaker than my right resulting in my walking with a slight limp. I never really thought much about it until I started running and people started coming up to me during races saying nice things to me or asking if I'd had hip or knee surgery. This kind of makes me wonder (and fear) what I look like when I run. I have no idea, and really don't care to know, but it's got to be severe enough to make people say something to me. Crazy right? The first time someone said something to me I actually cried, half out of frustration that apparently I run so strangely people think there is something wrong, and half because I was touched that someone made a point to say something.  


What can I do about it? A couple of years ago I had issues with tendinitis in my ankle (a result of how severely my left foot turns in when I run), so I saw an Orthopedic who suggested physical therapy. I went to physical therapy for about six weeks and she gave me exercises to do to strengthen my left ankle, foot, leg and hip. And they worked pretty well. Almost four years later, have I done my physical therapy exercises? Nope. Bad bad bad. 


In this pic you can kind of see my left foot doing its weird turn in.  

Anyway... sorry for the slight departure from my list... Back to it... 

- Aaah, my Garmin died just as I crossed the mile 4 marker. I always forget to charge it.

- Can we talk about kids on race courses? They are super fast (for short spurts) and really dangerous. I saw a kid who was maybe 8 or 9 tear off at the beginning of the race running full speed, with his shoelaces untied, weaving in and out of the crowd so bad he almost knocked a lady over. Seriously, whose kid is this?! 

- My toenails hurt. Why do my toenails hurt? I really hope I don't lose a toenail. I literally thought about this for a majority of the race. (Thankfully post-race my toenails felt fine)

- I hate it, HATE IT, when people run the opposite direction on a course, like they're trying to find someone behind them so they turn around and run back to meet them. If you wanted to keep up with them, why did you run ahead of them in the first place? You should not be allowed to run the wrong direction on a course. Forward only please!! 

- Even worse than that (in the same vein), fast people who finish the race and then feel the need to run the course backward with their water and banana and medal in hand, just to show off that they're finished and you're still on mile three. HATE. I give them evil stink eye. 

- I can see the finish line, but I'm in the middle of a walking interval, do I run or stick to my intervals? Granted, the finish line is pretty far off (like .3 miles), I could probably keep walking until the next one and still have plenty of time to run and cross the finish line running. Yeah I'll do that (and I did). 

- I always think the races photos they take of me crossing the finish line are going to be super glam looking, but when I see them I think, "OMG is that what I look like?!  I'm never running again." 

- Another medal, just what I need...but I love love love wearing that badge of honor around my neck. I earned it!

THE END

Winter Park Road Race 10K

On Saturday I laced up and ran the Winter Park Road Race 10K and man, it was great! Best race I've run all year. 


have decided that 10Ks are my jam - long enough to be considered a long-ish race, and short enough to not be too daunting (or require much training). 

What I love about normal (non-Disney) races is the fact that they start at a normal time of morning. Disney races start in the 5am hour, which requires you to wake up in the 3am hour, which is stupid. Regular races begin at 7 or 7:30, which is much more acceptable. 

Anyway, this race started at 7:30 which is perfect. I got there, geared up (you know, iPod, headphones, Spibelt, Garmin, visor - it takes a lot for me to run a race, apparently) and then realized I had to go to the bathroom. Porta potty time. Awesome. 

Once I got up to the start line festivities I realized that the porta potty line was literally a mile long and I had approximately 9 minutes until the race started, so I started to panic a bit. Thankfully the line went super fast and I was in and out with plenty of time to selfie it up and get to the start line. 


I ended up starting in the way way back by the stroller section because I couldn't get up any further. I hate being back this far because I always feel vulnerable, like I'm going to be last (or get steamrolled by a stroller). I know in my heart I will never be last, but I always feel like if I'm in the way way back I will be. Silly I know. 

The gun literally went off about 2 minutes later.  I barely had time to get my iPod situated.  I fumbled with my Interval app as I was running across the start line, sheesh.  And I was off!  6.2 miles ahead of me.  

I started off faster than I normally run, like I always do, and I ran through my first 2 or 3 intervals just to get out of the mass humanity of people.  Once the crowd thinned out, I was able to drop down into my first walking interval.  I did 2/2s again - this is best for me.  And I kept up my intervals again for the entire race.  I am so happy about that.  

I felt great for the entire race.  My runs were great, the walks were welcomed, and I never felt like I needed to walk during a running interval, which was awesome, and surprising.  I think I’m really getting better at this running thing, go figure!  

The course was pretty flat, but there were some uphills that I was cursing (of course those had to be during running intervals).  A lot of the course was on cobblestone roads which, ick.  I had to be uber careful because I easily trip on flat surfaces (klutzy), so uneven cobblestone I was sort of having a panic attack over.  Thankfully I didn't trip or fall once.  Go me.

I really felt awesome throughout the whole race.  Mentally though, by the end of the race I was ready to be done, which made me nervous considering I have a half marathon coming up. If I was feeling that way at the end of 6.2, how am I going to do 13.1?  Obviously my mindset will be different at the half, but I’m just hoping I don’t poop out before the end.  I am really hoping to stick to my intervals for that whole race as well.  Guess I should train, huh?  

The finish line came and went, I got my medal and my souvenir glass, ate a bunch of strawberries and bananas and Gatorade and made my way back to the car.  


All in all, my favorite race of the year so far in terms of how I felt, how I performed and just the race in general.  This was the last race in the 2015-2016 Track Shack Fanatic Series (the one I started last August) and you can bet I will be signing up for this year’s series as well, because it was great to always have a race on the horizon.  Always something to look forward to.

Hooray for running!

Friday Five - March 11

Hi there!  Happy Friday!  I’m reporting in a little later than usual, but better late than never, right?

Here’s my five for today…


Gwen Stefani
Gwen’s new song, “Make Me Like You” has been on a constant repeat in my head lately.  It’s so good and so darn catchy and she looks so beautiful on the cover of the single.  Her look changes every time I see her, but I really love this Marilyn-esque look.  So pretty.


Oh, and speaking of new music, did anyone hear the new Taylor Swift song, “New Romantics”?  Where did that come from!?!  Lovin’ that too!

Summer Weather
We have straight up summer weather going on right now in F-L-A.  It’s awesome.  Sunshine and highs in the upper 80s.  But it’s nice, no humidity upper 80s, not icky summertime humid upper 80s.  It’s glorious!  There will be lots of time spent outside this weekend, for sure!

10K
I’m so happy the weather is super warm and beautiful because tomorrow morning I will be running the Winter Park Road Race 10K.  I am super excited about it.  I love races in Winter Park and love them even more when the weather is nice. (my last race in Winter Park was frigid!)  I haven’t run since the Castaway Cay 5K last weekend on the cruise (oopsie), so I’m not expecting much, but you know that’s how I roll.  I’m really looking forward to getting out there tomorrow.  Hoping my Daily Burn workouts I’ve done this week will carry me through!

 

Taco Bell
I have been on a super huge Taco Bell kick lately.  I’m not the biggest fan of the TB menu, but Hubs wanted it one day a few weeks ago, so I just got their 3 soft tacos meal.  I forgot how yummy and delicious their plain old soft tacos are.  Since then I have craved soft tacos from the Bell like every day.  And, well, I’ve indulged more than a couple times a week since then.  No lie, no shame.  I haven’t had any at all this week (Sunday was my last offense), but I can taste them now… 


Tell me you're not hungry for a taco right now, just tell me!

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor



True story:  The other day I was craving Twizzlers so I stopped into CVS with only one thing on my shopping list: Twizzlers (and maybe some other candy).  Then I felt silly for just walking in and buying a bunch of candy, so I was like “OK I have to buy something else to offset the candy purchase” (yes, retailers love me).  So I ended up perusing the lipstick aisle (because really you can’t have too much lipstick).  I’m a big fan of those lipsticks that claim to be 24-hour, no fade, stick to your lips forever (they never do), so I found this one that I hadn’t tried yet from L’Oreal.  I found a really pretty pale pink color that I wanted to test (I’m usually a bold color lip kind of gal) and I have to say I really like it.  It smells delicious!  I know that’s weird to say about a lipstick, but it smells really really nice.  It doesn’t really stay on my lips very long, and the color is a little too pale for my taste (but it’s a nice departure from my normal lip colors), but the smell is what is making me love this stuff.  Weird huh?


OK, that’s it.  I’m off to trudge through the rest of Friday and then enjoy a fun filled weekend outdoors!  

Oh, and don’t forget to Spring Ahead Sunday morning (ugggh).

Me Gushing About Daily Burn

So as you know I’ve been working through a free trial of Daily Burn, a fitness website that offers a library of workouts for basically anyone.  And I love it.  Like love love love it.


I found Daily Burn at a time where I wasn’t really on the workout wagon, I was sort of in a funk on the workouts I wanted to be doing (“do I want to run?”, “do I want to do a program?, “should I go back to the gym?”).  Daily Burn offers me pretty much anything and everything I could possibly want to do.  In the mood for yoga, they have it.  In the mood for crazy cardio?  They’ve got it.  Kickboxing?  Sure.  Whatever mood you’re in, there’s a workout for that.  Love that.  And it really motivated me to get up and get going because it wasn’t the same old workout I had done the day before.  So it has kept things fresh and exciting.




OMG, Frozen songs are on infinite repeat in my brain these days.

I’ve now finished my free month-long trial and I can honestly say that I am more than happy continuing my membership.  It’s only $12.95 per month, and I think that is well worth it.  I actually took a look back at the number of workouts I did during my trial.  Over the month long trial I did 18 workouts, and if you break that down by the membership fee of $12.95, that equates to $0.72 per workout.  Can’t beat that, right?  Also, I did Pilates 8 times (2x per week).  That’s more Pilates than I’ve done in about 10 years, and I am noticing a difference already in my body, my posture and my pesky lower back pain.  I love Pilates so much, which makes me love Daily Burn for offering up a whole Pilates program on their site.

                                                 

What I also love is the fact that I’m doing different workouts.  Workouts that I might normally shy away from because they’re not in my wheelhouse, such as workouts with lots of lunges, squats, planks, etc.  I’m finding that I actually enjoy these types of workouts.  Weird huh?  I always thought I was a cardio workout junkie (think Insanity, T25, Shaun T in general), but I am kind of enjoying not feeling like my heart is going to explode during a workout (no offense to Shaun T, I love that too, just not all the time).  Anyway, bottom line, variety is key for me and Daily Burn offers that.


So, now that my trial is over I am going to continue forking over $0.43/day to have Daily Burn at my disposal (that’s 12.95 divided by 30 days per month – I’m a mathematician), because it’s really working for me and I’m really enjoying it and … $0.43/day!  Plus I have a zillion workouts that I haven’t even tried yet!

Interested?  Click here to customize your free trial!

All that said, here's my workout schedule for this week:

Monday - Rest (need a rest from cruising hard, haha)

Tuesday - Pilates Classic 1 (one day I will graduate to Classic 2)

Wednesday - Daily Burn Total Body

Thursday - Pilates Classic 1

Friday - Cardio Sculpt Blast and Burn

Saturday - 10K (eek!)

Sunday - Rest

How about you... What are your workouts this week?  Anyone on Daily Burn?

And, nope, not being compensated in any way, shape or form by Daily Burn (although if anyone is reading, hook me up!!).  I’m just writing about it because I am loving it and wanted to share the greatness of this site, because I’m nice like that.  You're welcome.

Scenes From My Phone - Vol 2

Hi! I'm back from paradise, but moving slowly. My brain isn't yet back on land, so today's post will be a phone screen shot dump of fun things I found around the interwebs. I'll get a cruise recap up soon, promise! For now, enjoy! 


This made me laugh. And I heart Becca from The Bachelor. I really hope she's the new Bachelorette.


Yes! Yes. 


I saw this and started looking for Baymax and couldn't spot him. Jillian walks over and within three seconds goes, "there's Baymax!" She's smarter than I am, for sure.


Truth. Amen. 


I might have to read this. I love me a good Bachelor tell all. Not sure if this is really a tell all, but there's probably some of that in there. 


I will almost always order cheese fries if they are on the menu. No shame.


Haha, yep. 


Yesterday was National Cereal Day, did you partake? I myself enjoyed some Golden Grahams, my fave! 

Happy Tuesday!
