Good news. I’m right on schedule as far as my birthday cake eating plans.
We had the Gigi’s cupcakes over the weekend, and Kevin is baking my Funfetti cake right now. It smells so good. Next weekend is for ice cream cake. The only pro to having my birthday on a Tuesday is that we’re stretching it out over two weekends. That and new Lululemon stuff always comes out on Tuesdays. :)
What a good husband. Isn’t that a cute face? He learned it from me….
Man, I really hope if we have kids someday they have blue eyes. And freckles. :) I’m confident that my genes will triumph.
Hanging out with Pippa while Kevin bakes. We’ve been talking about how we need a little table in the kitchen. For now we use the floor.
We love taco salad dinner bowls with my favorite coleslaw, of course! It’s better now that we’re not all paleo and whatnot because I can have sweet potato tortilla chips — I favor the Garden of Eatin’ brand. Kevin contents himself with Red Hot Blues since he’s a sweet potato hater.
So I have to confess that we have a LOT of good snacks in the house right now…. if not during birthday month, when???
This ice cream is amazing. But it made me realize that I might need a frivolous porcelain ice cream pint holder like this:
That’s worth the cupboard space, right? My mom would definitely say no! Depends how often you eat pints of ice cream!
Want to know what I eat more than ice cream? Pancakes.
Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes 2.0.
You can even make them while you’re in the shower because they take a long time to cook properly. I do this often. I also set of the smoke alarm on a daily basis. Pippa wishes I would cut that out anytime now.
Okay, one more snack I have on hand:
This stuff is so good. It’s like those Christmas tins!!!! Without the plain butter kind that nobody wants. Better yet, Kevin prefers the caramel, and I prefer the cheese!!! Yay!!!!!!
Okay, I still workout too. Sunday afternoon we went to our old gym AKA the club. It’s not staffed on Sundays which means there’s nobody there to yell at me when I think it’s a good idea to run a mile on the treadmill while holding a 25lb kettlebell.
Haha. I’m being totally serious. I switched hands every tenth of a mile, but it was still killing my grip after a while. So after .5, I’d have to put it in the clean position. I don’t really know if people were giving me strange looks. I wasn’t wearing my glasses.
We also went to CrossFit tonight even though I was crazy sore from Karen.
9 power cleans
9 pull-ups (jumping)
I used 95lbs, and it was heavy. Lol. I’m obviously not 1 rep maxing it for reals at 110lbs on my push presses if I can do that workout @ 95. I did 4 rounds + 2 cleans.
Can’t wait to see what’s in store for my birthday wod!!! I gave some input, but my coaches have been teasing me about it so we’ll see!!!
My biz is right on schedule as well — I knew I’d pick up some new students in September, and it appears I’ve made some good connections in my neighborhood. I also recently joined some professional organizations (MTNA, CMTA, and AMTA) so I’m excited about that as well.
My students are all required to fill out these practice sheets this year since I’m super organized. I told them I would do it myself as well — even scales. And not-so-favorite genres like jazz & pop. Keeping up my August goals into the next month. :)
What’s the best snack you’ve had lately? So many good ones. But I’ll admit that I’m ready for a break from sugar again after my birthday is over. I’m old.
Cheese or caramel corn? Cheese.
Who is the last person who baked you a cake? Who’s the last person YOU baked a cake for? People should bake each other cakes more often!!!!!! I’ve made Kevin James some cakes, and I made one for a friend’s birthday a while back. I feel inspired to do it more.
