Jillian's 6 week 6 pack
I guess I just needed a little break from Jill the Pill. Or I felt guilty for dissing her last week (NOT). Or I just need variety in my at-home workouts. Or I am just a fickle woman. Whatever, either way, this DVD was hidden by Naomi behind the heaviest TV unit for well over a year and finally found recently, much to my bored-with-all-my-other-DVDs self (I only own 3). I did it earlier this week and I was dripping sweat and felt like I was going to throw up, so you you can see how it would make my list of favorites. And this morning it still hurt to laugh and breath heavily. There's lots of cardio, legs and bum mixed in too. It really kicks your butt. But mostly kicks your abs. It's good.
Coffee Ice Cubes
My next order of biz is to make some decaf coffee ice cubes to try them in my new favorite cocktail, the White Russian. It is sure to be a dynamite combo. I felt like the real deal last night drinking cocktails while watching Mad Men with Mike, who may or may not have made them double strength and inadvertently gotten his wife a bit tipsy. May or may not, you'll never know. Obviously watching The Big Lebowski would have been much more appropriate with this beverage, and with all the leftover ingredients we have, this will probably have to take place some time soon.
Wizard of Oz
My great friend Sarah lent this to me today and I started into it with the girls and we already love it. The chapters are short enough that Bernadette will sit through it with me and Naomi-- this is a shocker-- but it's a tad longer than the typical book that I read with Bernadette, which I hope will ease her in to some slightly more advanced reading. Plus it's just a really fun story.
My new favorite recipe:
1 bag Tyson's pre-cooked grilled chicken, microwaved and food processed.
Some miracle whip and ranch to your taste
As many bacon bits as you would like, I like them all.
Enjoy with tortilla chips, on good bread or in a lettuce wrap. It is so easy and sooooo delish.
who moved away a year ago came back to visit again. It was so wonderful. Her girls get along so great with our girls and she is just a fantastic friend who I hope I can keep in touch with forever or at least until we live next door to each other and chat every afternoon over a large pitcher of sangria-- or at least that's how it goes in my dreams.
