new favorite

Meet my new favorite babyfood. It's from chef Tyler Florence, and I love it. I used to watch him on the food network here and there - so I thought I'd give it a try. Everything smells super yummy. I love the pouches which don't leak in your diaper bag once you open, like the other baby food containers.

Listen to some of these flavors: Summer Squash with Yukon Gold Potatoes & Parmesan, Roasted Bananas & Mango, Baked Sweet Potatoes & White Beans, Roasted Peaches with Rice Pudding - it makes me want to eat it. And I love that it has basic ingredients in it, uses stuff like brown rice and seems to have half the sugar as other brands.

If you have a wee one, you should give them a try. I found it at Walmart. Please don't judge me.

stella & dot

My friend Tara is hosting a stella & dot trunk party August 2nd. Their stuff is killer, and I can't wait till Max is old enough I can start wearing jewelry again without ripping it from my ears or drooling all over it. I might have to treat myself to something and save it for a night out with my man. If you want to go to the show, I'll send you her info.

heaven help me

I've decided I have put off getting in to shape long enough. Now that Max is a bloody nine months - what is my excuse? I started up my yoga again today. Bob kicked my butt once again. Tomorrow is swimming laps, and then hopefully in the near future, jeans that fit me better and a belly that no longer holds all of Max's leftover baby fat. Thanks a lot Max. Babies can be so selfish sometimes.

I also need to stop eating those devilishly delicious chocolate-chocolate donuts from the Dunford factory down the street from me. Why do they have to be so tempting. It's like I drive down the street, and I can hear them calling my name - taunting me.

I think tomorrow I will go out and purchase my very first scale. That will keep me in control. I hope.

Curse you chocolate-chocolates.

max a float

Just got back from sunny St. George.
A week of nothing but sun, swimming, and good food. It was a blast.
Coming home to a air conditioning unit that had frozen over, not so fun.

my new read

I just ordered this. The library had a waiting list of 233 people, so hello Barnes and Noble. It has received some great reviews... I can't wait to read it:

Sigh of relief

Good news: right foot is here to stay.

Which is awesome, cause I kinda like my right foot. Last treatment of antibiotics was a success. They think they caught up with the infection. Sigh of relief.

Now how do I get all this permanent marker off my foot? I kinda look like Frankenstein.

Thanks to everyone who has been helping me out these last couple days.

hang in there right foot

I know this is gross... a picture of my feet... but I just wanted to document how crazy this weekend has been.

Thursday suddenly my foot hurt - that is when I noticed it was cut. Friday I woke up and it had blown up like a balloon. I could barely walk on it by the afternoon, so I found myself at the instacare for some antibiotics, as well as an nice Tetanus shot (why do those hurt for so long afterwards) since I couldn't remember when my last one was.

The first inner line is where the infection had spread from Thursday to Friday. The dotted line on the outside is how far is spread overnight to Saturday. So once again, I headed to the instacare... this time they hooked up the IVs and started pumping me full of antibiotics. I had to go in on Sunday and I'm on my way now for my last dose. If this doesn't work - they said they will have to hospitalize me. That would be awesome (if by awesome I mean the worst thing ever).

I'm supposed to be off my feet all day. Not quite sure how to do that when you have 3 kids. I joked earlier about my foot falling off... now I'm starting to get a little nervous about.

Wish me luck.

it's the weekend, and I feel great

Except for the infection that has taken over my right foot. Somewhere this week I cut myself... yesterday my whole foot swelled up and sent me to the instacare for a nice tetanus shot and waiting for over an hour for some tasty antibiotics. I hope I can stop whimpering as I walk today.

3 weekends ago Max was sick, the next weekend I had strep, last weekend Ryan was sick with some nasty cough thing, this weekend my foot is about to fall off. Really? I just want a weekend already. For the love. Maybe I need to eat a Nutrigrain bar:

hello lovely

I imagine this chair and I could be good friends. I want it, and this couch.
Stupid sexy urban outfitters and their ultra hip furniture.
