Random movies, food, fashion and more

Randomness #1: After I ran this morning, I stopped at Old Navy to try on pants. I have a credit there and need something besides jeans to wear when I work at the school, so I figured Old Navy would solve my problem for less. Every pair of pants I tried on made me feel like an 80 year old lady. They just aren't flattering. I'm hoping it was a retailer problem and not a current fashion trend problem.

I was trying to go the inexpensive route, but I might have to suck it up and pay a little more. I'm willing to pay a little more to look at least a little closer to my age.


Randomness #2: I failed to share my incredible day of eating last week. I can't remember what I had for breakfast last Wednesday, but for lunch I had the most incredible salad prepared by the even more incredible Megan. Seriously, she has yet to disappoint me with anything she has made or recommended. And yes, she even made the dressing. Then for dinner I met my cousin at California Pizza Kitchen and ate almost the entire BBQ Chicken Pizza I ordered. Some days food just makes me ridiculously happy.

Randomness #3: Speaking of Megan and her fabulous recommendations, she told me about this salted caramel crunch yogurt. Then she provided me with some to try. She's pretty swell. I will be hunting down some more. It was like eating dessert and may in fact often be my dessert of choice in the future.

Randomness #4: While we were crossing things off the to-do list on Saturday, Scott broke out his tapes. We rocked out to The Proclaimers and had a little "do you know what this is" education session with the girls about cassette tapes. This all happened at the most perfect time because Sunday we introduced the girls to Randomness #5.

Randomness #5: Scott is great about recording old movies when they are on TV. Our most recent family movie night had us watching Back to the Future. Watching it made me very happy.


Randomness #6: I gave Tammie Coe a run for her money with my kick-off to Valentine's week. Every time I make these cookies, I start to wonder if they might be edging out my other sugar cookies as my favorites.









  1. We own all the Back to the Future DVDs if you ever need to borrow them. Ross also likes to DVR movies on TV...and then never watch them. We have all the Rocky movies on our DVR and lets just say they have been there for a while. I hope you are able to find more yogurt. I have been eating them as a treat too cause they are so good. Speaking of treats, I think I need to know more about these sugar cookies though ;)

  2. I really love reading and following your post as I find them extremely informative and interesting Movies

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
