All right, all right. I told you I’d keep you updated, then I abandoned you. I’m going to blame the bulk of this failure on my lack of energy from changing my diet this week. Honestly the last week was sad. I mean I could still handle stairs, but by about 7pm, I had absolutely no energy left. Things must change, because this isn’t conducive to my goals. Also, it drove me to eat animal crackers Friday, and consume an energy drink this morning. I KNOW! Don’t fuss. I’m already ashamed.
This is still only phase 2…
Changing subjects. Baking homemade cinnamon rolls should be an Olympic event. This morning I planned to make homemade cinnamon rolls, so I got up at 6am. Unfortunately, I failed to realize that after you make the dough and knead it, it has to sit 1.5hours before you roll/cut/prepare the actual rolls which then sit for another 1.5hours, then cook for another 15min. (?!?!?!) Needless to say, the wedding shower I was preparing them for was tragically subjected to grocery store pastries instead of yummy, healthy cinnamon rolls. However, I did get to work out early this morning, which increased the awesomeness of my day exponentially. Oh, and the rolls will actually be ready for consumption in about 5 minutes. That’s 14 hours+ after I started. :(
Other fun things that happened today-I got frustrated with the clutter that is my life, and started organizing. My precious baby sister came over to help, and I’m pretty sure she said it best-I’m kind of like a pirate because my place is so full of treasure. I found so much stuff today I forgot I had! Examples of such: a food processor, notes from my sweet site babies this past summer, bubble wands, and everything my mom bought me years ago when I was planning on going away for college. Like Christmas all over again. Best ever.
Then Clara came over. This girl is the best. I also forced her to watch my camp dvds and look at scrapbooks, so the fact that she endured it without much resistance probably obligates me to be her friend for the rest of forever. I’m ok with that. She makes me smile.
So, she makes the face from the first pic most, but this one makes me laugh. Clearly we need to update our picture situation stat.
**Update! Cinnamon rolls are done! And they are super delicious. Clearly this is what I should do with my life. (Make them, not eat them)
aren’t they beautiful?! …ok maybe not. But they are SUPER YUMMY. 4/4 people agree.
This one was my favorite. It was cutest, but doesn’t look at all like its brothers.
I’m now trapped again watching these ridiculous reality shows. This one is Toddlers and Tiaras. And these parents are the meanest most ridiculous people I’ve ever seen in my life. They are not only living vicariously (regularly they refer to things their kid is doing as “I” not she (or he apparently), but I’m pretty sure I just watched someone’s marriage completely fall apart on national television. Plus they all say, “they love it” and “I’d stop if they wanted to” then the kids repeatedly scream and say “no” and “I want to quit.” Insane! I could always change the channel, but I’m fascinated.
Dear moms, making your 8 year old look 21 and compete for the attention and approval of strangers will not end well.
Ok, I have to get up change the channel now; this is too much for me. Also, I kind of want to paint. So, tchou lovelies.
