i am a mom/wife/textile designer gone haywire. I love to sing(music/arts AA degree), craft, exercise, and be goofy. Just living life outside the norm. And the norm thanks me for it. Oh yeah, and I like me some haikus. . . . . . . . . . What are we up to currently? Aaron recently started medical school at Ross University on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean, and the kids and I are along for the crazy ride :)

Diet Fad I'm trying

Monday, June 29, 2009

I decided that I am going to try the famed acai berry and colon cleanse combo..... we'll see how it goes! I took my first pills this morning with my free chick-fil-a and jamba juice breakfast :o)

We went this morning and just drove through the drivethru and got our three meals and then over to Jamba juice to get a Mango-a-go-go smoothie. yummm. Click HERE to get a buy one get one free jamba smoothie coupon. If you want to try to make one of these at home, here is a recipe:

(Jamba Juice Copycat)

1 Cup passion fruit / mango juice
1 Cup pineapple sherbet
1 1/2 Cups frozen mango
1/2 Cup ice

1. Pour measured amount of liquid into blender.
2. Add frozen ingredients, except ice. Add fresh or frozen fruit. Add ice. Begin blending on low.
3. After about 30 seconds blend on high until you see the whirl at the center of the blender cup.
4. Take the lid off and tap on the side of the blender cup while pouring.
For the proper thickness, your smoothie should form a mound in the cup.

wow, it's been a month!!!

SOOOOO sorry for not posting all this month! It's been a tiny bit insane. We've been so busy and we even forgot about the ballet summer camp that Megan was supposed to attend last week. grr... $60 down to drain!

I went to girls camp at Taylor Ranch in Pinedale and we had a great time-
the weather was great and the girls had a ball. I drove a suburban and hauled a trailor-that was a scary and empowering experience. When we were leaving camp on Saturday one of the men that came to help us, watched me back up and said, "wow, I've never known a woman that could successfully back up a trailor." Yup, that felt good! ha ha.

Megan lost two teeth this month- one while I was at girls camp, the other while I was at mutual... do we see a pattern forming? I was so sad to have missed it, but at least I get to see her cute toothless smile every day!
The garden is growing like crazy and I have videos, it just takes a lot of time to upload them and can't since I'm always on the computer doing some kind of work: Getting ready to be a preschool teacher in August, filling in content on Drs. Goodman & Partridges new under construction website (I'll let you all know when it's done and you can give me some feedback), and getting time sensitive information to different time sensitive people :o) Anyway, here are some pictures I snapped today- sorry it's not video!kids garden
our tallest sunflower- about 6 feet
We are so excited for our annual independence day tradition this Saturday of BBQ & swimming with the Goodmans and "Private" rockin R fireworks at the Kennedy's house with cotton candy, popcorn, and sno-cones. Awesome.
Next week we will be going to our Harward Family Reunion on Mt.Hood in Oregon. We will be staying at my brother's cabin and participating in activities like rapelling, canoeing, swimming, fishing, tubing, hiking, shooting, fun family games, riding down the alpine slides at skibowl and geocaching. We will also have to see about bringing our potato gun/launcher to have another contest like we did in Colorado. I have to say, our family always has a great time when we get together and I'm so excited to go!

6-week Progress and Garlic!

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Hey y'all! Here is the 6 week progress video(s). I took two different videos and I like both so I'm showing both :o)

Also, I dug our garlic up, braided the roots together and hung it to dry! I'm sad that I only harvested 2 of them- the others I had to dig up and transplant to pots to make room for the garden in April and I wasn't able to save them- the larger of these two was transplanted and did alright but I had three die on me :o( I ripped too many roots. I can't wait to plant some more in October! What fun!
