what I’m thinking about today

really don't think about it quote

I have been out of whole wheat flour for over a month now. It’s not that I forget to pick it up when I am at the store because I remember every time. It’s more that I don’t pick it up because picking it up means I not only have to lift it, pay for […]

How To Save Money Grocery Shopping Without Coupons

I don’t watch very much television. I mean, I have a few shows that I consider must-see-tv and I have no issue admitting to you that Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Long Island Medium and Honey Boo Boo are on this list. There is just something about that Boo Boo of a family that cracks me up. I know Mama […]

Always Room For Cold Stone

  Monday morning already? Seriously? Oh well. No time to think about it since I have quite a busy week ahead of me, beginning this morning with an important meeting in Manhattan. At least it isn’t frigid today. Wait, let me correct that – At least it isn’t frigid this morning. It is rainy yet […]

Forecast May Call For Baking

  He told me he loved me. Who knew making the little boy grilled cheese with some bacon on cinnamon raisin Ezekiel Bread was the key to his heart? Now don’t get your panties in a bunch about me suddenly having bacon in the house. It just so happens that I had an Applegate coupon to use […]

Thinking Out Loud Link-Up With Running With Spoons!

  Happy Thursday! I am super excited this morning because Amanda decided to host a link up today to her Thursday “Thinking Out Loud” posts. I am always thinking something so this gives me the perfect opportunity to let you in on my thoughts of the moment. I know you are excited. Before we get […]

Back-to-Back Long Runs, Switching Up The Sneakers And Other Smart Moves

  I did something smart. And cost-effective. My Asics Gel Nimbus 15’s (on the left) are quickly wearing thin. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised – increasing one’s mileage will increase the frequency of purchasing new running shoes. Don’t get me wrong – I love a new pair of shoes but spending big bucks right now to get THE […]

Blog Redesign And Printing Coupons

Somehow it is Monday and I haven’t a clue where the weekend went. Besides remembering I had my most favorite salsa with those plantain type chips Saturday night, the rest of the weekend is a blur. As is my blog at the moment. If you haven’t noticed, the blog is under some restructuring this week so […]

Back to School!

Hello and Happy Monday! Can you sense my early morning excitement? School time school time! My excitement over the first day of school totally drops me a point or two for mother of the year. Although, I definitely earned the title yesterday when I took the little boy and his best pal ice skating.   I sometimes wish I […]

Make It All Better With Cookies

Well hello….I wish I had a fun weekend recap for you but I really didn’t do much other than try to feel better and back to myself. You know what the secret is to officially putting yourself on the mend? Yep. A nice bakery cookie. All day on Saturday I felt that I needed a big cookie – you know, […]

Friday Finds

I have been up for a while watching the breaking news. One terrorist dead and the other on the loose. Public transportation in Boston shut down while they try to get’em. I am confident they will catch him but wow, so scary. I hope that everyone in the Boston area stays safe and heeds the […]

Three Tip Tuesday!

Remember how happy I was on Saturday to report that my last long run before this Sunday’s half marathon was uneventful? Well ever since a few hours after that post, I have been randomly nursing an injured left shoulder. Without any clue how I injured it, especially how I managed to injure it while running. […]

Voila Gourmet

I needed a second opinion yesterday morning regarding the weather. I just didn’t want to believe the meteorologist on television so I consulted my weather app to decide if it was truly too cold outside for my “planned”  hilly run. “Poor day for outside fitness.” Uh huh. And I could have done without the big […]
